I was so busy struggling day-to-day for so many weeks – medically, chores ( baths, eating ), art pick ups & deliveries and fitful starts at painting – I never realized I’d ended up so tired + nearly a week’d gone by without blogging!
I also hadn’t realized til this week I’d built my steps to ‘tween 4-7K steps daily, same time I’d built back to 2-3 15-45 minute SilverSneakers Zoom classes also daily!
No wonder – I realized – why I looked, even to myself, so tired & crumpled, in this pic Sheila captured of my reassuring Max after a pretty sound beating his team took from the other team ❤️
Though everyone commented how well I was doing recovering, something I definitely needed to hear – it was also gratifying to hear the 9 year old’s Dad tell me, in just the right quiet tone, how tired I looked.
This outing, including the drive there & back amidst Austin City Limits festival weekend traffic 😊 turned out to also be a needed reset – of my own expectations!!
This reminds me of something I read from a financial writer at Elliott Wave International – the goal isn’t to make the most money I can ( from anything, art to investments ) but rather, to make money….
Moderation without excess.
Seems to be an appropriate life goal for me right now 🙏☺️
Stay well everyone! 🙏
Voting, in our democracy, is the purest form of expression.
Dissenting, affirming, protesting –
– all flow through the form of the ballot, not, the bullet…
Stay well everyone – for oneself, and for those who need us most..the children….
