Feeling really good the last few day. Been off work – HA : )
Thursday and Friday I spent both days mowing and doing landscape stuff like trimming trees and raking up pine needles. For some crazy reason, I dig days like that. Working hard outdoors, sweating, and then when you’re done looking at the finished product and feeling like you actually accomplished something. Take hot showers afterwards and chillllll. Love it! Today cleaned out my garage and then had a fantastic hike at one of my favorite trails called Lovell Gulch, which is literally 1.5 miles from me. Took no pictures, just enjoyed the hike and patted the trees with grateful vibes. I have no idea why the hell I’m sitting behind a computer all day for work when I love to get outdoors and involve some kind of physical activity. It is what it is at the moment, but I have a feeling it won’t be to to long before I get brave enough to bust a move.
The hike was just perfect, beautiful views of the mountains, and wild flowers and butterflies all just a jammin. It’s a pretty decent workout with some good hills for sure. As I was sweating and breathing like an old 53yr old, I just had the biggest grin on my face. It just reminded me how much I like to physically exert myself.
I’m just rambling for sure. Just wanted you to know I’m feeling good and hope you all are having a good weekend. If you’re not – get your asses outdoors!!! It may work for you?
All the best to you,

I’m totally spoiled. Less then 15 minutes from my house is Hayden Park in Divide, Colorado. Met up with a buddy for a walk around the loop here and then went out for dinner. Just a great time! Feeling fortunate and sending best wishes to all of you.
The other night I was leaving yoga and I saw this gentlemann slowly walking on the sidewalk with a walker. It was dark out, cold, and there was still some snow and ice on the ground. Something just didn’t seem right and I’m finally learning to listen to my intuition and ACT.
Me: How’s it going?
Me: Is that your car in front of mine?
Me: Where you headed?
Him: My house on Elm.
I asked him if he wanted a ride and he said sure. We get his walker into my back seat and he slowly gets into the passenger seat and I shut the door for him. He looked to be in his mid thirties. We’re driving and I could tell something was wrong as he slowly talked and tried to pronounce his words.
Him: I had a stroke and I’ve been trying to get out and exercise, but didn’t realize how long it took me to get over here. (about a 1/2 mile from his house)
Me: I’m so sorry to hear that you had a stroke.
Him: Yah, this is my second one. (then long pause)… I guess it could be worse.
After I dropped him off, all I could think about was his statement it could be worse. How many times have I done the whole woe is me or created self drama over nothing. Nothing!
I often forget it could be a lot worse.
Roll with the Small stuff and Appreciate and be Grateful for everything you have!
