|Winter at Home - January 2008|
So as I slowly got back into the work cycle I realized how much of an adjustment it was. I was tired a lot of the time and spent many times second-guessing myself. It occurred to me that my mind was now being exercised and it was about time I started doing more for my body. Even though I was tired a lot I knew that exercise might be just what I needed to increase my energy levels and also boost my spirit and my self-confidence. So I joined yoga and pilates. Never had I ever done either of these activities before but I figured why not? That was kind of my new mantra. I had gone through the “this is not forever but just for now” mantra during the worst part of the cancer treatments and now that I had survived that I wanted to really live again and try new things and I seemed to have no fear.
|My Family - Spring 2008|
Our life was humming along and we were settling back into a routine but we were also in need of a little time away. So, our friends invited us to a chalet in Saint Sauveur and we had a fantastic weekend of skiing, snow-tubing, and simply enjoying the outdoors and our friendship. It was just what we needed! What a great thing to do to switch up your mindset, help you see things in a different light and just enjoy living. I was able to snow-tube but was not strong enough to ski. Not yet anyway.
