Relax, Relax, Relax

Dear Readers,

My mom says this .. to me.. a lot. She even put it on a pillow so I would always have a reminder.. In fact, I got two adult coloring books, one from her and one from my husband so I think they are both trying to tell me something.. n’cest pas?

Well that is the point of this post, to relax, relax, relax. Yes, have goals, but take stock from time to time to say.. I did this. and that is great.. Relax, Relax, Relax.

So you want to lose weight? Yes, I do. Well, there is going to be king cake and cookies and things to derail you.. Relax, Relax, Relax.. Choose your indulgence and don’t overdo it… being from New Orleans so the idea of not eating king cake????? .. forget about it! I did have a slightly smaller piece than I would have.. but I did eat some. Relax, Relax, Relax…

You want to run a 1/2 marathon? Okay, well realize it may take a while because you recently had a setback with your back so you have to slow down. Relax, Relax, Relax…

You want to give a TED talk? Okay, well realize you need to hone your message and figure out what you REALLY want to talk about  and then decide if its a message worth spreading.. and then .. Relax, Relax, Relax…. I think you get the picture…

But in case you don’t.. try this on for size.. You will always have something to worry about or wonder about but sometimes it is just as important in the journey to (say it with me) Relax, Relax, Relax

This is a foot picture.. we took it at Multnomah Falls last year on our ‘second honeymoon’ I remember feeling very much at peace.. let me ask you, where do you go to “relax, relax, relax”?

Think About It.
