About Me

exercise is my medicine. I run, swim, and lift weights anything to keep my body in top form. I am an RN, a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend. I am grateful for my life and each new day.

2010 was an excellent year

2010  is almost over.
I am at peace with so much growth and change. I am now 50 years old. Not as scary as it seemed. I heard that while 40 is the old age of youth, 50 is the youth of old age. I tend to agree. I am grateful for my life, health,  family and friends.

I ran my first marathon. While the day was amazing what was better was the process. The training and learning. Now as my second attempt at the same marathon approaches I am still learning and growing. This is a process I will never tire from!

I learned how to meditate this year and found my purpose for life is to be love. What an amazing thing to understand about my life I was created to be love.  God is love. I stopped looking outward for God and looked inward in quiet contemplation and found God within which I attempt daily to share with others. I love the book The Four Agreements! I try to live by them. I focus on how much good I have done each day so I am not too hard on myself and realize that we all make about 100 mistakes everyday. I just forgive and press on.

I am learning to live in the present moment, and trying to simplify and support causes that can help others. Last year I raised money for Make A Wish. This year I am asking friends to consider donating money to fund research on finding a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma. (Not formally raising money, just raising awareness).

This week I am hammering out my training schedule so Los Angeles Marathon. I will post it here and on my refrigerator door. NO EXCUSES~ I will be ready rain or shine (sure hope for shine!!)

What exciting challenges lay ahead in 2011? What limiting beliefs will be overcome?

In the two years of our online friendship, Sheridan, it has been my privilege to witness such beautifiul changes in you. I can only imagine how beautiful 2011 - and you - will be one year from now. Wish I could be there at the finish line in Los Angeles to celebrate your success. Hugs, Jackie

Oh, I just love this reflection of your year. I am so glad we met and I can call you a friend. You inspire me always and I am glad to know you! :) Someday we will do that hike in the desert, right? We all make about 100 mistakes a day... forgive and press on... love that! Will remember that towards others and myself. ;) Love this thing called life!
