I had a massage and energy work done this past week. What an awesome experience. I felt like my head was 10 pounds lighter when I was done. I love to have all the kinks worked out of my shoulders and to turn my neck when needed. It's always an interesting experience to see what thoughts or whom pops into my mind during the work. I was given an agate stone - which turns out to be the stone of strength. I hope you are able to get a massage and/or energy work when needed.
It was one of those weeks with some appointments, some laughs, some tears, and some peace. I have been much more mellow and letting things happen. Yes, I definitely like to have my day planned out, but I also am smart enough to realize that life likes to interfere with best made plans. I have felt much more at peace over the past couple of weeks - there will always be things that happen, but I'm working at handling the day-to-day. Don't worry, I'll never spend my life looking through rose colored glasses, but perhaps a little bit of a filter is a good thing.
I was able to catch up with a friend from VA today and it was great. I sometimes miss hanging out with people and having different conversations. Yet, what I realize is that I'm very present when I'm with someone. I turn the phone ringer down and focus on the person that I'm with. Lately, I've been turning down the phone quite a bit so I won't be interrupted whether it's at the nursing home or in the coffee shop.
The news makes me crazy and stressed. I truly try not to watch much of it although part of me misses the news geek I once was. I don't mean the political stuff, I mean the local items about murder and mayhem, lots of drug ODs, etc. I don't understand the hate when you may not even know the whole story.
I was able to finish a James Patterson book this past week as well as a Nora Roberts. I'll start something new later today.
I am going to leave it here for tonight. I have to say I'm tired so perhaps I'll go to bed earlier than normal. But now it's time for ice cream! Lady knows it's time for her nightly treats as well. I hope you have a good week. Take care. Chat soon. Marie
