Sitting at PC tonight, wondering what I can do to make myself happier. Not that I am in some sort of deep depression, but wondering (mostly what I can afford) what to do to find peace within myself. Is that not what we are all striving for? I know a few things I want to do, but they all require so much energy. It is not IMPOSSIBLE to overcome the energy issue, I just need to get off my ass and do something about it. My birthday is approaching and the one thing I am "giving myself" for my birthday, is a year of better health. "The HELL" with M.S. I know it will take some of my health, and there is not a damn thing I can do about that. BUT, I CAN change things in my life that will make my health better over all and will make me a better person for it. Some of my plans are to eat better. I will start out by keeping a diary of what I eat. I was in a "weight/eating" clinical trial and found that just by writing down everything I ate on a daily basis, that I changed some of my eating habits. The second thing is to join the YMCA. If I have to dig the money out of my investments I will (I hate doing that), but I have always, and still do love the water, and also plan to join the gym part of the YMCA as well. It wont be hard for me to work out, as I found out a couple of years ago that I eventually "CRAVE" going to the gym. The last thing I have in mind has to do with vanity, but hey, aren't all of us women vain to a degree? I am going to start using all of the very very nice brands of creams and anti-wrinkling agents that my Mother has got for me through the years. My family has longevity genes and because M.S. doesn't kill, I would like to look nice (for my own sense of pride) as I age. If anyone has other suggestions I am "open" to them, especially right now. This post is "all about me", but hey it IS my blog, huh? Kudos to all the ladies who take care of themselves for THEM!!! GO WOMEN, WE TRULY ARE THE BEAUTIFUL SPECIES!!!!
