Question Of The Morning…
The question of the morning. Was it harder getting out of bed or getting out the door this morning?
It Feels 14 Out Yikes
I certainly didn’t want to get out of bed this morning but the dogs let me know they weren’t having any of that. So I got up and started the day. Bowl of cereal, cup of coffee, Good Morning America and the paper and then whoa, the weather report. It feels like 14 out. Yikes! Do I ReAlLy want to go out this morning? My good self and bad self argued the point. Truth be told, heck NO, I didn’t want to go outside. But then my good self said, hey no snow, no ice, winds not horrible but what got me up and out the door was the article I was reading in the paper this morning (Monday, December 10th), by Jenee Osterheldt.
Remaining Active In Life
Life keeps moving and so should we Jenee says. A very simple 1 line statement, but one packed with loads of meaning. She wasn’t talking about just mentally either-she was talking about physically. She was talking about the seniors who she sees at her Community Center. She was talking about the Competitors at the Senior Olympics and the men who followed them while making a Documentary. How when they first followed a 100 year old man playing tennis, how condescending their attitude was, he invited them to play against him and his partner. It changed their perception into realizing they were good players for any age. It taught the 2 men the importance of remaining active in life for as long as you are living.
Easy To Get Sidetracked
It is easy to be sidetracked by the weather, by the darkness of winter and we need that “thing” that gets us up, gets us dressed, and gets us out the door.
I personally aspire to be like these Seniors. I plan on putting my shoes on daily and doing whatever I can to keep myself healthy and on the right foot. Join me…..
