Beyond 365

Day 202:

Today I am…  Back at it.  Work that is, today is the start of my five-day working week.  I do feel rested, and I am about to get back at it.  The weather is humid out, I really hope that there are more dry days than humid ones, Oyvey!

Today I am…  Back at it.

Day 201:

Today I am…  Making it count.  My day off that is, today I have not done a whole lot, still in my pajamas, haven’t been out of the apartment today, did do a little cleaning; not a lot, but a little.  Just finished season 2 of the Killing, now about to watch season 3…  Netflix rocks, well I can really say that cause well I can.  Just relaxing and resting up.  Trying to keep myself as well as I can.  I know today I feel a lot better than last, and that is saying something.  I have to work the next five days, so today is totally resting up.  I need to really take it easy, and not get so stressed out about things.  I feel that taking this day off from really doing anything strenuous was the right thing to do, I mean rest is best.

So my reader’s here’s to enjoying the last of the weekend, moving forward always.

Today I am…  Making it count.

Day 200:

Today I am…  Feeling like…  And believe me it isn’t good.  I am beyond tired, exhausted, wiped out, and drained.  Today was such a slow day at work, I could hardly keep up, or keep awake.  So now I get the day off tomorrow, in the mean time, I just slipped on my pj’s and I will say, that I will not be getting out of them until Monday morning, when I get cleaned up for the new working week.

I thought about going out, going down town and just doing nothing in particular, but this exhaustion has got the better of me, and that means that I will be staying in for the day, doing absolutely nothing, possibly some Netflix, but no going out of any kind.  The weather has been grey and depressive, it has been way to humid and the temp is rising to a melting point with me.  So think that what will serve me well, is to do nothing, and get some rest and recharge.  So here’s to recharging my friends.  Enjoy your weekend.

Today I am…  Feeling like…

Day 199:

Today I am…  Asking Myself.  Am I tired enough, have I had enough, am I really, really, ready to let all of it go, and move forward finally.  Sure I’ve been inching along here and there, setbacks along the way, but little by little moving.  But was I really doing all that I could to make this change?  The answer to that is no, I know it, and I am sure some others have known it as well.  God has been seeing me thought all this, He is always there, even in my darkest days and nights, He is my comforter.  I thank Him every day, I will get through this, I will move forward in my life.  So the question to myself is am I tired enough, have I had enough, am I really, really, ready to let all of it go…  YES!

Today I am…  Asking Myself.

Day 198:

Today I am…  Wowed!  I have been on this journey for 198 days, diligently tapping out something or not a lot at all, but still sticking to my guns.  persistence pays off, I see this, and strive to keep on keeping on, keep on moving forward, even in the face of days that just make me want to quit, lay down, give up, and so forth, no.  I will not give up, I will march forward and I will keep on keeping on.

Wow, this month is almost at an end, with 4 days left, time…  It keeps moving forward, there is no stopping it.

Today I am…  Wowed!

Day 196:

Today I am…  Of Good Cheer.  Last night I got a review on my biggest client, turns out I am at a 4, which is very, very, good, 5 is perfect, but 4 means I know my stuff pretty well.  That made me smile from ear to ear, now this was the client that I was having the most problems with, but seems I have done pretty good for myself.  Good cheer my reader’s good cheer.

I have the day off today, but still have to go out and get some personal things done, it’s a semi sunny kind of day, good day for a walk, think I will go do just that, so here’s to days off, and good cheer, and getting out and enjoying the day.

Today I am…  Of Good Cheer.

Day 195:

Today I am…  Getting back on the wagon.  The exercise wagon that is.  I have not been doing my exercises, and when I was ill, I stopped altogether, I have been feeling bloated and just a plain wreck of things.  So today I start over once again.  Do I feel shame?  Well a little for the fact that I know I should have been doing something more, but just could not pull myself together to get it done.  With that being said though, I am not going to give up, no.  I am going to keep on keeping on this, until I achieve results.  I have been struggling with getting this under control, as well as my emotional state of being.  Not all days are bright and sunny, but I try, I try.

Today is the start of another work week.  I know I need to slow down and pace myself.  I got a good assessment last week, which gives me a little more pay, still not where I want to be, but sure not where I used to be.  And on that note my friends and loyal reader’s I shall be heading off to get ready for my working week.  Keep it safe, fun, and whatever you do or do not do today, enjoy.

Today I am…  Getting back on the wagon.

Day 194:

Today I am…  Doing my own thing.  And by that I mean that today I just went downtown and walked, just enjoyed the day.  There were a little bit of sprinkles, but didn’t let that bother or stop me, just whipped out my umbrella, and went about it.  I walked from congress to Barton springs rd, then caught the bus to southland meadows, did some grocery shopping, hopped back on the bus, and headed back home, it was a good time had by me.  Just took a few photos of my day.  Today was a day for me to unwind from the work week, and walking downtown did just that.  I must say though, it was a lot more quiet downtown, now that they have moved the busses off congress, there were not that many people when I was out this morning, but I am sure they probably were just getting started for the day.

So here’s the ending of another week.  May the new week be full of blessings and good cheer.

Today I am…  Doing my own thing.

In the air tonight….

That would be the pollen, mold, cedar, pig weed, fungus, cactus, what ever else is floating around out there.  I am truly going to have to start wearing a mask, just to protect me from all the crud floating around.  Today and every day that I have gone to work, I encounter dandelions blown off their stems, floating in the air, just trying to cling for dear life onto me, I see all kinds of stuff billowing out of flowers and from blooming trees blowing in the wind, out to get me and the countless millions out there.  It is hard to avoid, so I end up coughing more, and sneezing trying to keep it at bay.  I really would have loved to have taken a photo, just to show you.  But I was literally on the run, trying to stay ahead and away from it.  Oyvey!  Me no liking this stuff.

Try to keep your sneezes in check my friends and readers.
