Health, me

Boy, I am feeling old!

So, I’m feeling old.  Not because of how I feel but the things I have to do health wise at my age! Ugh!

I went to the doctor this past Wednesday to have my toes looked at where I sliced them open with a slate slab in my walkway about two weeks ago.  I am taking really good care of them and she said they are healing really well.

I then asked her about several things I was concerned about and I now (about to turn 52 on Sunday) am at an age that I have to go through certain testing to make sure all is okay with my body.  This includes colonoscopy, annual mammograms (of which I have to do now anyway, because they found a non-cancerous lump in my right breast) and because I am worried about my snoring (yes, I said snoring!) getting worse, I will be having a sleep apnea test done! Oh and I have a really hard time losing weight, no matter what I do and know that would help with the snoring, so we discussed options.  See what I mean?!? I feel like my body is going against the way I feel! *rolling eyes*

Why can’t our bodies not age, just stay young looking and feeling until we pass?? That would be great, wouldn’t it??!! 🙂

I do take care of myself and my body at least.  I don’t want anything creeping up and shocking me, so I continue to keep up with myself, try to eat healthy and stay active.  It’s all we can do, right?

So, even though I don’t feel my age, I have to do the things that make sure I continue to feel good in this body of mine.  I hope you all are as well!!

Love you all! ❤

Use Wisely

As she walks slowly through the woods behind her home, she is lost in her thoughts.  Thoughts of frustration, feeling lost, wanting to help heal, wanting to move things, maybe by air.

Leaves float by her and around her.  She thinks, “it’s awfully early for the leaves to be falling.”  

Unfocused on her surroundings yet focused on her thoughts, she doesn’t realize that the more she gets lost in her thoughts, the more the wind is picking up and leaves are swirling around her.  They brush her face, along her cheeks and softly touching her lips.  She stops and looks around her.  She finds herself in the midst of a small tornado of leaves and flowers.  Her hands are lifted up on each side of her and she is tingling with sensation.  “What the hell?!”

Watching as the leaves swirl about, she breathes in deeply and exhales evenly.  Everything slows down slowly and as she brings her breathing to a steady rhythm, it all settles around her.  “What just happened?”  She asks out loud.

“Power is a great thing. Now you know you have it, use it wisely,” A voice from no where is heard suddenly and disappears just as quickly.

She stands there stunned and unable to comprehend what just happened.

“Maggie where are you?” she hears her sister call.

“I’m here!” and she moves to meet her.

You Know The Feeling

You Know…The Feeling

You know the feeling of anxiety.  The one that comes up and takes you by surprise.  You think you are fine.  Your gut is saying you are.  You have gone to your appointment by yourself because it is no big deal.  They are just checking that the mass has not gotten any bigger and it hasn’t moved.  Doctor says all is good and will see you in a year to check again.  Great!

You get to work and in the middle of your day, you get a little emotional with something you see.  No big deal.  That’s normal.  Right?  Just me and my female emotions is all.  Then someone says something a little harsher than normal and you just start crying.  WTH??!!

Yes, anxiety got me today! I didn’t realize, until the crying hit me, that I had let something that was okay, really get to me.  It is that “not knowing” and keeping a strong persona, especially once you know all is okay, so that no one sees you were worried or stressed about it.  No reason to be upset when all is okay, right?

Wrong.  We all have our ways of dealing with things.  I am just realizing when I do this kind of thing, that I was not dealing with it when I thought I was.  Before I would think I was just being emotional or having a bad day.  Now I know it was my anxiety I had not been dealing with and it finally hit me in this way instead of staying bottled up or seen as an emotional day.  It really is amazing the things you learn about yourself when you start paying attention!  🙂

Castle Home in the Sky

She had been searching for so long.  Only finding what she was looking for in her dreams.  Dressed in a beautiful flowing gown she stood on the cliff.  Looking toward her home.  Held in the clouds by anchors to who-knows-where.  Her beautiful castle in the sky.  Waterfalls cascading into space and time.  Birds flying over head, singing for her to come home.  As she stepped forward, a bridge appeared in mid-air and she slowly headed to her castle home in the sky.
