A spring day

spring tree : Beautiful sakura tree with pink flowers against blue sky.

I was wondering as I took my walk today, shorter than usual, but still a walk. Why I love autumn so much better than the spring. It doesn’t make any sense as Spring really is so beautiful and the smells in the air are so wonderful. The redbuds and other trees that are shooting forth their blossoms of pink, green and white paint the landscape in brilliant color. It really is lovely to watch how nature comes to life and color the landscape. I stopped and allowed myself to feel the cool breeze and the warm sun on my face and listened to the noisy “quiet.” The dry rustle of the fall leaves are being replaced with the soft, velvet whisper of green leaves. I think everyone has a “feel” for certain seasons. There is beauty in every season and I think it is important to value the beauty of nature represented there. I just am not into the extreme hot and cold that can come with those seasons. What I do like about autumn are the colors and the cooler weather that allows me to really enjoy those walks I take in the woods and the scents are so intense and woody.

However, as I type this I am just grateful that there is still beautiful scenery to look at. That the sun still shines and the breeze still blows sweet fragrance from the trees and freshly mown grass.



Nutritional Site

For many people struggling with finances, eating sensibly and nutritionally is thrown out the window. People just think it is impossible to do And eating nutritionally can look like it is more expensive. But, the key is the fiber and complete nutrition in healthy food that makes it easier to eat less. This is a link to a young lady’s blog that I follow who is a nutritionist and gives some good advice about diet and exercise. http://stepheusebi.com. Hopefully you can get some good ideas on what to eat and how it can help you health wise.


A difficult day today

I was wondering how many people start out with such enthusiasm and within hours find it hard to want to put your fingers to the keyboard. I hadn’t even realized that I had not finished this. I am procrastinating doing what I should be doing. Which is making a schedule of my day to allow for working on each thing I want to accomplish. My writing, my co-writing, posting in my RPG group’s stories. I just started school again too to get my Six Sigma and Project Management Certification. You would think that I would just sit down and do it. But, I have to admit that there is a part of me that wants to be childish and stamp my feet and say I don’t want to.

Okay, but then what do I want? Do I want to just sit and do nothing? Do I want to vegetate and allow my mind to dissolve into jello as I watch the television? I don’t think so. Getting up and moving is what I need to do. Both physically and mentally. It is too easy to give up and so much more rewarding when you don’t. Even if the successes are small, they are at least successes and movement forward.
