Breath - Taking and Catching...

In terms of dumping my frump slump - the last seven days have been truly breathtaking.  I did things I NEVER in my wildest dreams thought I would EVER do.  I was accorded three awards that helped redefined (in a good way) some of my old, tired, and destructive thought patterns - and Anne Hathaway said it perfectly at the Golden Globes when she mentioned (and I paraphrase) that she now has a blunt object that can forever be used as defense against self doubt.  

So, today has been breath catching.  Today was a day relaxation, and rejuvenation. A day of pajamas and red carpet shows.  A day of leisurely breakfasts, coffee, fireplaces, and reading.  A day of warm afghans, and sweet afternoon naps.  A day to regroup and a day to consider next steps. 

Necessary and welcome, a day of rest is a lovely gift, and one gratefully accepted.  Because starting again tomorrow - it is certain that there is more breathtaking to come...


  1. Glad I read this just before I hit the gym on my lunch hour!

  2. Hello coach-daddy,
    Thank you for the comment. Glad to hear you are heading to the gym! Have a great workout and a great day.

  3. Hi Carol. I am rooting for you in your journey. You had an amazing accomplishment of losing 103 lbs.! I know that you will drop the excess weight and whatever else you may have on your list to accomplish in 2013. I was listening to a CD today and the speaker was encouraging us that we are all incredible winners. In order to even be here, you won a race to the death against 2,000,000 other "competitors". That gives great perspective whenever self-doubt wants to creep in.

    1. Thank you for the comment and the rooting Mervyn! I so appreciate the encouragement and your reading of my blog. Please stay tuned and I'll tune into your blog as well. Thank you again!
