Workout has been completed and I am so thankful to be headed to my bed for sweet sleep!
It has been an interesting last 24 hours to say the least. I just heard from a good friend of mine that I had not heard from in a very long time. To be honest, I thought something really bad had happened to her. Thankfully she is doing well, she just provided me some pretty sad news that I am not going to delve into. As I treat this as a pseudo-diary, I wanted to simply memorialize the discovery and provided an opportunity to reflect deeper on it, the next time I read this passage.
On the flip side, what it has simply reiterated to me is that each day that passes with me putting in the time & effort into myself, my family, my goals, & my purpose – my life has been detoxing from negativity. I would have been much more torn up a year or even a few months ago. At this time (with the fast, 99-day challenge, hair chop, new opportunities, relaxed job, better health, & clearer mindset), I am too light to let it weigh me down and am much more excited about the work I am putting in on all fronts to bring the reality I see in my mind to fruition. I am wishing for the same positive space & lightened load on my friend and her path as well.
As I step into this weekend, I am projecting to the universe getting this package out to my son in love, spending some wonderful time with my baby love & man love (lol), getting a quarter through one of these books for my monthly book challenge, knocking out at least a full module of my classwork, staying on top of my 99-day challenge, cleaning the entire house from top to bottom, pairing down on personal items & clothing, and getting back to meal-prepping for the entire week.
