I hope your week has been going as great as mine. Have you started crossing off the to-dos on your list? Taken time to appreciate the little miracles that are easy to overlook? like, waking up in the morning, breathing, having water to bathe, watching your children get on the school bus, hearing 'I love you' from those who care? I have been consciously living in the now and I tell you that is is the best way to live.
Happiness is realizing and accepting that "I Am", not "I was" or "I will be"--Bernice Angoh
Oh, I forgot to tell you I took up running and yes, I'm addicted. I run most mornings and I wonder how I used to survive without it in the past; apart from the fact that you're filling your lungs with fresh air and improving your circulation, there is a feeling of accomplishment each time you break your own record. I still remember the very first time I was able to run for four miles and still felt like I had more in me to go on. I have actually fallen in love with this cute running store not far from where I live, it is my haven, I want everything from that store. I already got fitted for my running shoes and can't wait to get their super sports bras and skorts. They also have races every Thursday, guess who is signing up for that? I also plan to enter next month's 22 mile race (pray for me), will be sure to take some pictures of me especially before and after the race so I can show you my what-was-I-thinking face, lol.
Guess who turned 2 this weekend? my little man! Can't believe it's only yesterday we were at the hospital waiting for his arrival....Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BOO

Here's what I read recently; Steve Harvey is funny and the book is an easy read. Very interesting read and mostly accurate. I have some things that turned me off about the book though but i will keep those to myself, if you're interested grab a copy and you may get some valuable advice from it. I give the book 4 stars.
