Today is a New Day

Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 7:09 AM filed under General postings

Okay...the title is about 'today', however I want to briefly talk about yesterday.


Yesterday I woke up at 4AM and decided to start cleaning.  I was on a role, so I thought, "I'll take the dog for a long walk, she deserves it."  I felt so invigorated while walking, thoughts rushed into my head and I became ultra motivated.

I considered the deaths in my family and the cause of those deaths.  My dad was skinny as a rail, but didn't manage his stress and ultimately failed to managed his diabetes.  My father dictated his life...and death.

My mom on the other hand, couldn't control her environment, but she could control how she responded to situations.  I'm sure as a young wife and mother, my mother had share of anxieties.  I wonder if the combination of her environment and her response to the stressors in her life led to the development of breast cancer at 32 years old.

With those thoughts on my mind, I declared, mostly to myself, that I want the cause of my death to be something that's out of my control. 

I can control what I put into my body.

I can control how I use my body.

I can control how I respond to external stimuli.


As for today...I took the dog for another long walk, because we BOTH deserve it.

Thanks for reading
