50 and Feeling Fabulous
So while I was swimming this morning I was thinking back to this time last year. I knew I was going to be having surgery and that my mother would also have major surgery before she started doing dialysis. It was somewhat daunting but here we are a year later and all is well. How blessed we are that everything worked out.
Then I started thinking about how 2019 is going and how I want to continue the year. Well this month I turn 50 and I have a few treats planned and really excited about the year ahead. Then I started to check in with my physical body as I moved through the water and thought ‘I feel fabulous’. Then I thought how do I feel mentally and emotionally and again I thought ‘I feel fabulous’ Even now I feel fabulous writing this even though I did lose my swimming hat, goggles and ear plugs in the dressing room, but I’m sure someone just put them in their bag by accident and they’ll be returned. Anyway I’ve decided I want to feel like this all year, so my moto and hastag for this year will be #50andfeelingfabulous
How will I achieve feeling fabulous
Since I started Just Be, everyday I work towards being happy and healthy and generally, well 90% of the time, I am. I honestly love the life I have created. That won’t change and like always there will be bumps along the way. But what does happy and healthy feel like? Well for me, this year anyway, it’s feeling fabulous!
Like you, things don’t always work out. The car breaks down, the washing machine dies, appointments get cancelled, we loose stuff, the list is endless. But these things are fixable and temporary so I focus on the bigger things like my family and friends, my home, my work and the things that make me feel fabulous. I practice what I preach by taking care of myself first before others and I know who I can rely on when I need support. Trust me I don’t do it all myself. Yes I put the work in but I get twice as much back.
So I challenge you to also feel fabulous every day. Take a moment each day and think ‘how am I doing?’ and change it if you don’t like how you feel.
Love & light
