John and I went to a seminar about teaching your kids how to respect technology and make sure they understand that every text, Facebook update, email, text, blog, etc. is telling their story. We are to ask them, “What story are you telling the world?” And to always think of the P’s when putting your thoughts out there. Would you want your Parents, Principle, Police, Peggy to see what you are writing? Cyber words are forever but emotions are not. If these formats of communication were around when I was in my 20’s, I’d be living in another country, wearing a wig and going by the name Francine.
When you are going to Dunkin' Donuts for your morning coffee, there are three kinds of people you meet at the door. One is the guy that pretends not to see you and opens the door just for himself. Next is the guy that acknowledges that you are there, walks through first and pushes the door with an extra oomph so that I need not touch the door. And the third guy is the kind you want to marry. He acknowledges you with a smile, opens the door and gestures for you to go first. Ahh, now this is my kind of guy. Sacrifices his immediate caffeine needs to put mine, a total stranger first. This morning, I met up with the first guy. The door nearly slammed in my face. And he didn’t stop there with his spreading the love. He asked for coffee with cream and sugar and ice cubes. When the woman handed him his coffee he said, “Did you put the ice cubes in there?” “Yes.” She said. Then as if yes was not good enough, he repeated “the ice. Did you put the ice in there?” Now the guy in the background turned out of his donut packing as if to support his fellow worker. “Yes!”
And the guy walked away. But not before loosening his lid to be sure. At this moment the two workers and I had a moment. A moment where we were all thinking the same thing…I’d never marry that guy.
My sister Beth and I love to talk about diets, weight, aging, anything relating to ourselves- of course. Our other sister thinks it's a bit self-absorbed and believes we should talk about how to make the world a better place. Don't get me wrong, I am all for that, I just want to look good while doing it.
Last week Beth came in town and wanted to find a Hot Yoga studio. She has been doing Bikram Yoga for two years now and she looks and feels (I’m assuming here) awesome.
We found Core Power Yoga 5-7 mins from my home. (Very important Beth said that your studio if 5-7 mins from home)
Core Power offers one week free trial so today was my forth class and I feel great!
I truly believe when I can hold my pose without falling out of it, I will be ready to change to the world!
I thought "this is it!" when I got the call last summer asking for more information. But somehow, I blew it!
When we get a night out, John and I typically go to a movie, dinner, then come home and crash. What are we missing? There's a whole world out there to explore once I get my sleep.
