You Must Be Present to Win!

I stole this from one of my fav blogs I read pretty regularly "another mother runner" http://anothermotherrunner.com.  I thought it was a great sign and really maybe comes at a good time for me.  I'm still getting over the horrible fall/injury which occurred almost 2 weeks ago.  I'm able to walk, pain has lessened, and I'm progressing with my PT so why am I not more smiley?  Well as I told one of my friends via text yesterday I'm kind of a half empty glass kind of person right now.  So as goes with many different situations no time better than the present to change that into a half glass full kind of attitude.  My mom always tells me I'm going to "wish my life away" by always being focused on the future and not present.  Granted, I don't think there is anything wrong with being a planner, but I'm going to try and make every attempt to do a better job of living in the present.  I, too, think this motto goes write along with "The Happiness Project" I recently read and blogged about.  Not quite sure I'm ready to start a happiness project in full, but I would like to incorporate some of Gretchen's ideas into being a happier, more present person.

I'm feeling pretty worn out from this past weekend (Abby and Mike's re-blessing ceremony and party back home).  It was a great time and beautiful party.  I did pretty good with setting up, presence at party, and helping as best as I could tear down, but it also is amazing how out of shape one becomes and hence my tiredness today.  So to start with "you must be present to win" I am finishing this post, reading some other blogs, reading my great book club book for the month and running to the library to pick up some more reads, going to rec center to get a modified work out in before PT this afternoon and then returning home for a night of R and R before heading back to work tomorrow.  I even told a friend I'm thinking about no house work, laundry, etc being done this week in honor of my new "you must be present to win" attitude- it will all be here at the end of the week.  Hope everyone has a great day and if you find yourself wishing some of your day away think again about "You Must be Present to Win".
