Giggles

I just had a giggle.

You’ve heard this question asked before on if you could ask anyone to dinner who would you invite?

I thought of all of you who I connect with here. Looking around the table from one person to another it made me giggle. It would be a dinner of very interesting Super Hero’s!

I know I don’t always comment enough but please know your posts are very meaningful to me and keep on sharing.

Happy Sunday❤️

Feeling Good – Jammin!

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,

Dwight

Today I Rise because of You

This is for the women I am so fortunate to follow and who follow and support me in this WordPress space. I’m in awe of you and the strength and determination you possess . I read your journeys and applaud your great strides and also cry with your sorrows. So many times all you want…all you want is just someone to acknowledge you. Someone once just to say nice job I’m PROUD of you. I hear it in your words and I am sad this is the case that it hasn’t occurred. The next reading though you have wiped your tears, pulled your shoulders up and back, and started marching forward again. It just amazes me! I’m grateful and honored with your support, and I send my support right back to you! You are the beautiful souls in this video. Keep rising❤️

Halfway through 2019. Mr. Bull has a few words.

Well you’re probably saying to yourself that’s a hell of a way to start a post! I couldn’t agree more. As promised, I posted a few weeks ago this quote that really resonated with me and said a future post on it is coming.

“I’ve never seen any life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question finally getting sick of their own bullshit.”

– Elizabeth Gilbert

So being we’re halfway through 2019, I’m going to call out some of my bullshit in areas in my life I’m supposedly working on. This post isn’t intended by any means to get loving don’t beat yourself up Dwight comments. In fact any get off your ass comments would be much appreciated and much respected!!

Here goes in no special order the things I wanted to make process on this year:

Lose 25 pounds

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You haven’t committed to one diet or plan of attack. You got Oreos in the fridge and junk food in the cupboards. When the hell are you going to bust a move on this? You can fricken do it if you just put your mind to it and tell that tummy to chilllll.

Get fit

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You have consistently been inconsistent on your workouts. You know what to do and have the tools to use. Start way way small and start building up a routine.

Get more social (like in person)

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You’ve had maybe 4 social outings this year. You haven’t pushed yourself in this area at all. You stay home in your comfort zone wishing for friends you can do things with. I know it’s “hard” for you, but come on man so is being lonely. Believe it or not there are people out there that are looking for the same things you are – real friends.

Battle my dragons (depression)

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You started off the year great taking on the fight and even documenting some of the tools here, BUT again you’re not using these tool in a daily practice as you KNOW that’s what it takes.

There’s probably more but to be honest I’m quite tired of all this bullshit🤪. Come the end of 2019 I’m go to make big gains in these areas and tell Mr. Bull to go frick off and don’t come back.

Any other bullshitters out there? Let’s get it done and motivate each other.

Hell Yah,

Dwight

* Reminder – you can’t be kind or give Mr. Bull an inch!

Our highest self

I’m realizing as I write out my thoughts a little context goes a long way. Many of you who read my blog battle with depression as I do. My hope is this post surrounds you all with light and helps you get through some of the storms. I post this only with the goal of sending love to all and mean no disrespect to anyone’s faith.

No matter what I label myself.

No matter what others label me.

At my core I Am God. I am infinite love.

As I repeat these words, I AM GOD, peace overcomes me and I welcome back my highest self.

I hope this helps someone as it has me,

Dwight
