Holy cow what a difference I am seeing in my life, already. A little sunshine, some exercise, back to meditation on a regular basis, eating healthy and taking vitamins PLUS a lot of positive attitude and life is grand.
This morning my clock went off at 5am, and I got up and went out by the water to meditate, then for some yoga poses. As I was showering I was thinking about how good I feel these days. My energy levels are up and my life is taking a turn in the right direction. As I stood in my shower I imagined all the negative thoughts and ideas washing down the drain, and I imagined a beautiful stream of water and light showering over me. I blew my hair out, put on make up and ran around the house nakkid for a bit while I drank a hot cup of CLICK Espresso drink mixed with Inspire Dutch Chocolate Cake protein… As I sipped each drink of protein I visioned me taking the protein in and visioned it keeping me strong and healthy. I vision myself light and healthy, thin and well. I smiled as I drank the protein and send love and gratitude to not only the persons that sent it to me, but the people that create these protein drinks for us bariatric post ops.

I put on my uniform and headed out to meet My teacher Miss Carla and the other “kids” at school. Today I was the only Freshmen attending the event, everyone else was Seniors. First, I felt quite privleged to be earning INTERNSHIP hours as someone who is in MOD 2 second I got to hang out with the KEWL kids ;)…We drove up to the Boca COuntry club for a GOlf tournament event. Let me tell you this, there were a ton of handsome Bellos, nicely dressed and looking fine. I had my flirt on full volume LOL. I do have admit my Southern accent is well received in that community. I felt quite lovely as the other “kids” watched and laughed as one man talked to me for his entire massage, before it was done I knew his entire life story. He kept asking about my accent and we all got a nice laugh.
After our volunteer work was done, the Country Club provided us with the most amazing luncheon. The theme was World Fair, and there were stations with Greek, Jewish, Japanese, and many other foods. There was an omlet station where they cooked the omlet to your order in front of you. A yogurt bar, a coffee bar, a fruit bar, a pastry bar, and honestly I lost track of all the food LOL. They even had steak and eggs, french toast, french croissants and Belgium waffles. LOL. I wanted a bite of everything, and managed to eat a bucket of blackberries. YES the other “kids” got a kick out of that LOL.
Were arrived back at school by 1:00 PM and I did an hour of bone labs (we have a HUGE test tomorrow) and I did 2 and 1/2 hours of practicum then studied some and back to night class for a Massage Lab class. I am amazed at my energy levels.
I never dreamed that at the age of 40, I would be back in school building a new life. I have to admit, at first I just sat and stared as the door closed to my old career and old life. I wasn’t really open to creating a new life, I could not imagine myself being anything but in the field of bariatrics. I was taking Gods clay and trying to sculpt myself into what I wanted, and he had a different plan for me all together, and I didnt want to listen. So, everything happens for a reason.
I have visions of using this massage therapy work as a stepping stone, and I intend to study eastern medicine. I am still young with many good years ahead of me to do what I love…
Today I have exercised mind, body and spirit.. and life is good.
