#whatsinitforme is a motto I adopted in 2018 not to be selfish, to be mindful of my needs in this life...
I began a journey to be mindful of my own need at the beginning of this year and already I am reaping the benefits of this motto. Not because I have become selfish and arrogant but because I am mindful of what I need to be healthy and happy every day!
Today, April 4, 2018 I will complete one of my goals this year which is singing at the Barrie music festival. The last time I sang in the festival was in grade 8, in the 70's, where Rosemary always took first place! I never placed when I sang and was always feeling like I was in her shadow! I met Rosemary in the last couple of years and I told her this and we had a laugh because she never knew and certainly did not win the festival to spite me. She won because she has a beautiful voice.
This mindfulness is taking me on a journey inside myself. Today, April 3, I am days alcohol free. The last time I could say that I was 20 years old! Alcohol has been a part of my life for so long I did not know what life was like without it. How to celebrate successes or how to look myself in the mirror.
This mindfulness has taken me on a journey of self value! That is the beginning of the best part of this motto! I love caring for myself and the doors this 90+ days has opened.
Watch for more thoughts as I work toward the half ironman and my trip to Ireland to return to my ancestral roots in 2019, two of the bucket list items I am planning for my 60th birthday. Putting the pieces together.
