Makes me feel successful to cluster my clients and have ill days on the days I go into the office :). Resting so much is giving me a huge boost! 17 hours ago

Your tone has really shifted in the last few weeks – for the better that is. I know you are still struggling with some things, but you sound peppier, more awake and as if you have more flow of vitality. I’d guess it has to do with the consistent hydrating paying off, as well as all the self awareness growth and personal honesty you are going through :) 2 days ago
This morning my healing walk was focused on connecting with the energy of the trees along my moseying path. Felt very energetically aware and grounded pure from my journey. Not much cardio. That is ok though, as I’m also integrating the fabulous bodywork I received yesterday. I can march along more briskly later in the week :) 2 days ago
Read another 20 last night. Feels good to be regaining my reading stamina. It helps that this book is well laid out. The writing is clear and concise. And the chosen short stories illustrate the main points quite well. 2 days ago
First and foremost I want to rest.
Within the context of being gentle with myself and honoring my own needs I would also like to:
-Go for a walk in the woods- -Meditate with the trees- -Clear the kitchen sink-
- Clear out the fridge
-Cook lunch- -Cook dinner- -Pack M’s lunch for tomorrow- -Pack a lunch for me for tomorrow too-
- Wipe down the bathroom
-Read “Made to stick”-
- Clerical data entry
-Listen to music.- Perhaps craft new playlists? 2 days ago
and sometimes recognizing what you can handle, and setting realistic and healthy expectations for yourself is the most empowering form of growth! Kudos to you :) 2 days ago
Want to share this inspiring link! http://184.108.40.206/~upliftme/index.php/people/natural-healing/521-tree-hugging-scientifically-validated…
The video clip at the end is powerful! Shows how plants can change their frequency of vibration, and it can now be translated through a synthesizer into phenomenal music!
Enjoy! I’m off to the woods for a walk and meditation session ;) 2 days ago
Marked myself out of the office for today. I need the time to integrate some big shifts. Realizing more and more how important it is for me to be truly well!
Held firm when the universe tested me with a sweet, gently boundary pushing client who called to see if she could sneak in a session late this morning. I told her I won’t be in the office this morning, but that I’d be delighted to work her into my schedule for Thursday.
Proud of myself for making ME and MY well being a priority. It feels scary. And liberating! 2 days ago
Have you been icing? Ice, rest, ice some more… you’ll want to ice in about 5-10 min at a time, as frequently as possible throughout the next several days. Also, as it starts to heal (aka, later this week, into next, etc.) you can help rehabilitate it by pointing your big toe in the air and tracing imaginary ABC->Z. That will take your ankle through full range of motion with out it being weighted down :) Seriously though, get it checked and see about physical therapy if it is bad. A rolled ankle can set you up for lack of integrity in the joints for years to come unless you support its healing well. 3 days ago
Got home tonight, and discovered that my sweetie had been a one man cyclone! The front hall was clear, the shoes neatly lined up. The kitchen counters clear, though the sink is piled high (empty when i left the house earlier), stairwell empty – it had been a “in transit” zone before, his desk completely empty, the bathroom tidied, etc, etc, etc! Where did it all go? In a huge pile in our living room… *sigh. Happy to have the clear space. Glad he had the energy. Not so excited to be facing sorting through that pile in the next several days. Ah well, the joys of sharing a home with somebody who has an alternate approach. 3 days ago
That doesn’t sound so good. So sorry you are going through such a dismal time. Sounds like some serious shadows to work through and grow from for sure! Rest now, you need it. 3 days ago
Going to be a short week as I am taking Friday off to go look at wedding venues. No clients today or tomorrow either as I need to catch up around the house more + rest. Good news is I already have 3 clients for Wednesday, and will be at the farmers market Saturday doing chair massage :)
Monday: 4 hrs ~ 1.5 hr driving to and fro Thai Massage appointment. 2 hrs receiving best, most nurturing, intuitive, and deeply healing thai massage I’ve ever had! Totally inspired to give again! .5 hr reading “Made to Stick” for marketing purposes.
Tuesday: .5 hr Tuesday accountability group e-mail. .5 hr cleaning out my inbox. 3 days ago
So update from initial “brain dump” entry….
Plan our wedding: Goal this month is mostly find location and set date! On track with this, in that we are going to visit three potential venues on Friday. Crossing my fingers we love at least one of them. In which case we just need to check their availability and choose our date. Thinking the first might be the most likely. Otherwise it is back to the drawing board.
Finish getting apartment tidy enough to entertain: Ha! Not happening any time soon sigh. I’ve been prioritizing getting the rest I need. Good, but means letting go of this for now.
Complete switching to credit union:* eh, at peace with how I’m dealing right now. Do want to shut down a couple of accounts at US and start using new ones more.
Money group stuff – one successful meeting. A lot of good growth awareness about my values. Want to research health insurance options before our next meeting.
Get in the swing of chair massage gig and choose how to optimize – Success! Already have a new client from this! Could still use lawn signs and banner, but not stressed about it.
Figure out health insurance! – meeting with a broker on the 30th.
Walk/hike 2x per week + average – just about making it :)
Cook most of our meals and freeze entree sized portions for later lunches etc Lull while my sweetie was in Europe, but getting on track now :)
Start weekly shop at farmers market. Hasn’t happened yet…

My sweetie just got back from a business trip from Europe. He is eager to take me and spend time exploring together. Hope we can afford to go… Probably will be dependent on generosity from my family. 3 days ago
My dad teaches yoga in their living room on most Friday evenings. I was in their neighborhood and stopped by for class last week. Felt good at first, but got badly exposed and needed to excuse myself by about twenty min in.
At least I did some :) 3 days ago
Curious as to how/if you are finding yourself drawing on these principles these days? 3 days ago
My sweetie has been reading a lot to expand his skills for work and awareness in life in general. He wants me to in turn read the books that have been most insightful so that we can be on the same page and relate with each other about the concepts presented as the opportunity to do so shows up in our life.
My biggest challenges with this are: 1) being dyslexic and out of practice reading, and 2) carving out the time to sit and stretch my brain.
I am starting by caring the book in my oversized purse , and reading a few pages at a time whenever I get the chance.
About 50 pages into Made to Stick right now. Really intriguing concepts! Hope to chew through the rest of the book soon. Eager to read more on my list as well. At least if I keep reading even a tiny bit at a time I will get there :) 3 days ago
Craving simple right now. Compact, easy, graceful, spacious, straightforward, ... all sounds so wonderful! Getting there is rather daunting though! 4 days ago
Spent over two hours cleaning and cooking in my kitchen… the air out there isn’t filtered yet, since we are still saving up for another filter. Now I’m puffy and breaking out in hives under my chin. Grrrreat! Here is to hiding out in the clean room some more! 4 days ago
He likes pens, so I bought him a pack of nice ones as a surprise :) 4 days ago
He is far more comfortable walking around with these new higher quality shoes that give him more support. So glad this is paying off the way I hoped it would! 4 days ago
- couldn’t stop beaming picking him up from the airport. Felt good to be twitterpated with excitement
- lunch, hearing stories of his travels
- stopping by to visit friends together
- snuggles = my favorite
- out to breakfast, talking about potential honeymoon plans
- walk in the woods… A first for just the two of us.
Ready for more down time to keep it quality over quantity :) 4 days ago
I love M, and it is wonderful to have him home from his business trip. It does make me realize just how exhausting being together and “on” can be. I started to lose my sense of self and my own energetic boundaries a little this morning. He offered me the opportunity to go on a few errends and to his bodywork appointment with him. I’ve declined to stay home, take a nap, and regroup instead. Would be fun to go with him, but then my day would be gone. Better to enjoy the down time and be fresh for the afternoon. Proud of myself for this choice :) 4 days ago
Grateful the bountiful rain storms have washed the pollen away. Really enjoyed moseying up the woodland trail with mys sweetie this morning. First time he has come with me. Delightful to get to share the peace of the woods with him. 4 days ago
