Energy

Physical energy is a funny thing, I think. For months I had NONE! Not an ounce. I was a slug. I didn't want to do anything....therefore I didn't do anything. For some reason I recently got hit by a bolt of energy. Don't know where it came from but I'm glad it found me. I have actually cleaned around the house, weeded my garden, and started walking again! And in my mind I have accepted that I need to keep the momentum going. So even when I don't feel like walking or doing things around the house, I MAKE myself get up and do something...anything to keep moving. And I've been thinking. Yeah, I know, dangerous. But I was thinking about how, after doing things, like the cleaning, but especially after walking, I should be extremely tired. And I'm not. I'm full of energy and can't wind down. Which can be a great thing, unless you need to be in bed getting some sleep. I am at work at 6:30 am every morning Mon-Fri. So I walk in the evenings after supper. It takes me right at an hour to walk 3 miles. Last night I walked 4. So I am very wound up when I get home. I sit at the computer for about 30 minutes and then I try to head off to bed. Reading has always been a great way for me to make myself tired enough to sleep. Well lately I've been reading for at least an hour before I even think about being tired. I guess this BIG, llloooonnng story was just to say how amazing energy is. You should be tired and you are raring to go.

I can feel the energy in your post Bonnie! It's wonderful you've found the momentum to keep going! Please send some of that energy my way.

I envy you that energy. I had it when I first got started and there is no reason I can't have it again. You are encouraging me to make every effort toward getting things done that require some activity.

Granny Annie, how funny I inspire you. You are the one who inspired me to keep on. I figure GOD gave me the energy I needed to use it, but you're stories of riding your bike and giving up the "gopher" inspired me. Thanks!
