Rest day: the joke is on me!

    I laughed to myself as I drove home around 7 p.m. tonight - not from PRFitness, but instead from a blur of department stores and thift stores in search of uniform shorts for my ever-growing children.  Earlier in the day, I had decided to call give myself a "rest" day.  My head exploded Friday night into what I thought was allergies, but now believe might be a cold/flu.  I did a CrossPit workout on Saturday and then hit the trails with the goddesses on Sunday, but neither went quite well.  So, I listened to Coach Chris who told me to "rest" and stay away from the gym to get some energy back.  But then I listened to guilty mom "my poor kids have no shorts and it is 62 degrees" and drove like a crazy woman in rush-hour hell to find one pair of shorts for each kid that pass muster with the uniform code.... So I had to chuckle -- because it never too late for more lessons about life in balance.  Off now to truly rest - feet up and everything! Hope you all find time for real rest!

I am the other talking belly button....

... as if you couldn't guess! Sherri's post is spot on: Life happens, and you deal with life -- not the drama of it! As each of us go through this process, my hope is that we remember to embrace the process and not always the results. I feel like I hug it a little closer and tighter to me each time I get the chance to step back and reflect.  Sometimes I'm in a groove, and sometimes my belly button is doing the talking ...

"The most sacred place dwells within our heart, where dreams are born and secrets sleep, a mystical refuge of darkness and light, fear and conquest, adventure and discovery, challenge and transformation. Our heart speaks for our soul every moment while we are alive. Listen... as the whispering beat repeats: be...gin, be...gin, be...gin. It's really that simple. Just begin... again."
~ Royce Addington
It really is that simple, sometimes we make it so hard. Begin. Continue. Or Begin Again.
Wishing all of you well,
