Last week, as I was extremely exhausted between my business endeavors, travel, and being a Golden Mom, I hammered out my blog to hit the deadline for my MKMMA class. Right when I went to write it very early in the morning, I noticed a fellow student publish one quote. It made me laugh and taught me a lesson as she hit her deadline while keeping it simple. As it went, later on she added more. I enjoyed both blogs. The simplicity of the one quote and her intellectual side of expanding on it.
Needless to say, I knew I had to simplify. It was not easy as I waited until I was not well. I ended up having to take off this entire week of work. I contract out to one of the nation’s best hospitals and my state’s best. I still have my car in the parking garage there as I am intelligent enough to know that I was not in shape to drive. I am elated to have wonderful medical providers, family, and chosen family who supported me. The MKMMA program is aware that I need a week off at minimum and maybe even two. I am going for easy does it back into things.
Every year is a Golden birthday in my book! For my 40th birthday on Monday, I have one request from you. Please read the attached link on stroke written by my wonderful colleague, friend, chosen sister, and resource coordinator for the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Northwestern Medicine. She is another multi-dimensional strong woman who coordinates our fitness class program, is another writer and presenter, and of course, a Golden mom. Her name is Jill Stein, and it is her story of having a stroke as a healthy 44 year old fitness instructor. She wants to help others with Prevention with her story. Many Thanks!
I promise to live a life of my Dharma providing me with Liberty and True Health.
I always keep my promises. Cathy
Today and everyday, I am grateful.
(Look out for next week I will balance a blog of creative writing and intellectual stimulation of the work we do with our subconscious minds.)
