Wild Wacky Wonderful Weds! Boy is it Ever!!

Good Morning Everyone! Today is Wild Wacky Wonderful Wednesday and boy is it ever! March 13th and I walked out the door into a mini snowflake snow storm! Is that groundhog wacky or what? Little prankster. . . gotta admit these last couple of year the weather has been interesting . . . with all the computer technology our forecasters get it wrong . . . what makes us so interested in where this guys shadow falls?

This month I have something going on every night. Tonight I get the honor of hanging out with the incredible Brenda E Taylor. It is our 4th meeting! Brenda created an online Group called The Journey of Women. We are not big yet but we are dedicated to making a difference. This is our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/groups/274161102711294/ She has a mission in mind. If you are a woman in any walk of life looking for a place to make lifelong true-blue friends we invite you to join us tonight for dinner and conversation! All I know is it’s on US 40 on the East side and we are meeting at this AWESOME Mexican restaurant. The food is delicious and the company will be downright real.

Guess this is kind of a long status post but today is going to take me by storm and I intend to ride it out calmly . . . who knows if I’ll get back to facebook today so . . .If you have nothing else to do but watch TV, why not come out and join us? For information either friend Brenda or message me or like her page and leave a message!

** This was my status update today on facebook. STATUS UPDATE . . . I think I issue news bulletins! I really am excited about meeting with Brenda again this month. She is down to earth. I was drawn to her the first time we sat in a meeting for Christian Women's Business Connection. The leader of that group is Cathy Padgett. She is my life coach! I love her. She prays for me and motivates me to reach for the stars. She is the one who helped me capture the negative soundtrack loop that was playing out in my head daily. I promise you, life changes when you put a little focus on the thoughts that whisper across your brain during the day. I look back over the last 6 months and I am left grinning. 

You see, I have stepped so far out of my comfort zone it has completely changed my life and everything about it. It was the spark that started the flywheel. If you are unhappy with one element of your life I encourage you to get more active in your life.  Do something that will draw you out of your shell. I admit it going to places where a lot of busy people are frightens the heck out of me. I don't even know why. Once I get settled in I'm fine. I have figured out that being me is perfectly okay. I like myself. Why wouldn't others? 

I'm not sure where this confident Wendy has been over the years but I'm happy she found her source of strength again! Yes, I did talk in 3rd person ha ha . . . sometimes it's just the best way to get the point across at how even you notice a difference in yourself . . . almost as if before you were hanging out with a different person. 

** As promised, here is the update on my YMCA experience: I am excited. Amazing how less overwhelming a facility becomes once you have the full tour and understand how and where everything is. The place is endless and the rooms for my children to access are rocking! I have two hours of childcare available every day except Sunday. I was absolutely elated again last night. I was promised a wellness assessment by next week which include setting up a workout plan for myself as well as an explanation on how to use the machines! Even cooler my information gets plugged into this program and the machines are tied into it so that I keep an actual true log of my activity! Oh yea, a little accountability never hurt anyone! Last night I walked on the treadmill for 1/2 an hour again. It's the only machine I have braved. Monday I walked 1.3 miles and last night I walked 1.4 miles. Even cooler, I was more relaxed last night and even managed how to figure out how to input my weight into the machine so it calculated how many calories I burned! After my walk and cool down I went over to the subway inside the Y and ate a tuna sandwich loaded with spinach, onions, black olives, tomatoes, banana peppers and jalapenos. Yum! Then I changed into my swimsuit and went to the Hot Tub. The jets are so powerful I'm telling you it's heavenly. 

I have a busy day ahead of me . . . I've been slammed via the phones so I apologize if this is a little jumbled. I write as I think . . . you never know what you are going to get! I have been getting flashes of memories the last couple of days so I know I am being prepared to continue on my story and enter the dark ages once and for all. 

Today I pray you step out of your comfort zone in some way. I pray it starts a spark that fires a flywheel of movement for you. I pray that you put yourself out there for honest friendship possibilities. I pray that you become more active in multiple ways. I pray you begin to enjoy life and see the beauty in living it to the fullest. I pray you draw closer to God and lean upon his strength. I pray you too realize there is no cause for fear. Our God is bigger than anything! I pray you begin to see the beauty in your life and you begin to give thanks. Today I also pray for all believers of Christ. I pray We step up and get active in spreading the good news. We can't do that closed up inside hiding our light from the world. I pray all believers wake up and get in motion. Today I thank Our Heavenly Father for so many blessings He has bestowed upon me and all the blessings yet to come my way. I love my life. I know my purpose. I plan on enjoying my mission and I'm so thankful that I was chosen for this life. What an incredible life it has been thus far. Thank you Father. In Jesus name I pray,

Wendy, Mom of Many
