Well hello there!
Let me explain this picture. I was out walking and I went by this apartment building and they have cactus in the front. These two cactus - wait - is is cacti? Well these two guys were side by side and I figured....now that will be a great background for my next selfie. Why? Well, look at them. They are beautiful plants. The gray one on the right - if you back into one of those - well OUCH! Luckily - this one closest to me - someone had the foresight to break off the really hard pokey pokes off it. But the one on the left - although beautiful and looks like it should be on the bottom of the ocean - if you break it- and the sap gets on you - itchy ITCH! So basically, leave these guys alone, unless you want some trouble.
And there you have it - the title of this - and the topic to my podcast this morning - AWARENESS. If you haven't heard it - here it is: anchor.fm/mentalgirl/episodes/Episode-105-e1vplg/a-a4o1j6
Gotta have awareness. It really helps to keep you out of some trouble.
I've been struggling a little bit - and I've had to pull in my awareness to get me through - and also to become aware when I'm entering in the drama zone.
I haven't been testing out makeup in the last few days. I've been testing out awareness. I also haven't been practicing my selfies. But heck - I'll get there. This one is kind of funny. My shadow behind me cracks me up. I wonder if my "awareness" part is in the shadow.
Anyway , I'm truckin' along trying to accept and also be aware.
I'm in itchy, ouchy mode too. It's summer and the bugs like me. So I'm getting bit and I'm allergic. My arthritis is acting up and it's making opening jars, doors, and driving a little challenging. Hey A words - allergies and arthritis - awareness and accept - cool. Okay - so my awareness is perking up. Look at me.
Take your time out there. You are worth it. I'm worth it. We can do this!
