Simply happy…

Yesterday was a very long day for me.  We had a Family Curriculum Night event that lasted until 7pm (my day started at 4:30 a.m.).  I came home to my office and worked until I fell asleep at my desk. I awoke sometime in the early morning and actually went to bed.

This morning, I awoke at 5 a.m. realizing that I did not complete my blog post for yesterday.  I also remembered what I wanted to blog about.  All day, my thoughts kept drifting to how my life is once again shifting upward.  I am expanding and building endurance mentally, physically, and spiritually.

I was physically tired because I help set-up the gym for the event at the school.  However, it was a different kind of tired.  I felt tremendously energetic and happy; in contrast, a year ago for the same event, I could barely breathe while walking.  The level of inflammation in my body has reduced to the point that I do not feel any arthritic pains in my hands, knees, or feet.

Obviously, what I take into my body has a far greater effect than I realized – good or bad.  It’s focusing on the good that I know I must continue to do.  Yesterday, I chose salads and healthy proteins all day.  When the school provided pizza, salad, and dessert- I maintained the course with salad and lean chicken breast (very tasty).

I AM Celebrating my endurance!  What can you find to celebrate about yourself?  Please share by commenting.
