Sunday night musings – list style? Sure why not.
*I’m obsessed with shows about transformation. Biggest Loser, America’s Next Top Model (I know it’s trashy fabulous, but I can’t stop watching….even when Tyra gets all cray cray and dresses like a super hero), The Voice. I love watching someone change from week to week. Progress inspires me.
*I want this shirt now (first seen on Jess!):
*I have 2 chances to get the same ab/ass-kicking Tuesday and Friday morning with Jess’ triplet, Jolene from Determined. She better BRING IT! (as if!). 😉
*I think I have a barre obsession. My phone (Android) finally accepted it as a word. My friends (even my guy friends) know what it is….haha!
*I’m obsessed with this quote:
I used to be so afraid to embrace new things….I wanted the life I had but I wanted an upgrade. Now I realized if I want new things, I need to let go of old things. It’s the whole season/reason/lifetime thing.
(read the whole quote/poem here)
Once upon a time I thought everyone in my life was here for a lifetime. When things ended I was devastated. Now I can see the benefits to only having someone in your life for a season. I love sandals, but not all year-long. I love passion iced tea lemonade, but I don’t want to drink it everyday. People and “phases” are the same way. I’ve lost more than just pounds, and gained more than just health.
*In my hotel in LA I took this picture – it might be favorite one to date.
I carry this picture (from 2009) on my phone to remind me of where I’ve been. Sometimes it motivates me, sometimes it makes me sad. Either way, I think reflection is healthy.
Looking back I don’t know who I was then.
Seeing that picture reminded me of the quote currently on my desktop:
Such a true sentiment huh?
Speaking of – let me end this post with my favorite read in the world right now (“It’s not going to turn out the way you thought…..”). Do yourself a favor, read it. Fall in love with Kris Carr.
You won’t do it at the right time.
You’ll be late.
You’ll be early.
You’ll get re-routed.
You’ll get delayed.
You’ll change your mind.
You’ll change your heart.
It’s not going to turn out the way you thought it would.
It will be better.
Happy week friends. I hope you’re feeding your soul (and enjoying the amazing kickass New England spring weather!).
