Monday in the Mountains

Big fat flakes of snow are falling slowly in my little town - each one beautiful and unique just like you.  Inside it’s toasty warm as our heating system struggles to keep up with the ever falling outside temperatures - baby it’s cold out there and icy and slippery. I haven’t been outside much this …

Visualize and it shall be so

A couple of years ago, one of my therapists suggested that I visualize myself walking.  At the time I couldn't. I just couldn't seem to remember how I might have looked striding down the street.  Perhaps because I could no longer stride.  My walk has evolved into a 1.5-2.0 pace. ( that is the speed …

Are you happy?

I've pondered this question quite alot these past few years.  happy?, content, fulfilled? However you define it.
