We have more snow up in the mountains than this picture shows, but as we know I try to stay away from the snow. Because it’s COLD. What is a beach girl doing living in the Rocky Mountain foothills? I ask myself that question every day. That said, once again, I’m going to try to embrace winter. When I am better, MKL and I will be trying ice skating, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Maybe I should say if I get better… now if you’ll excuse me, I have to find that lung I just coughed up.

Quote of the day: “The first step to change,… is accepting your reality right now. Honoring your process. Compassionate self-awareness leads to change; harsh self-criticism only holds the pattern in place, creating a stubborn and defensive Basic Self.  Be gentle with yourself as you would with a child. Be gentle but firm. Give yourself the space to grow.”  —  Dan Milliman
