Pass the Kleenex & Press Play on a Movie
My body has decided that it has had enough of the stress I've been under, and in order to force me to rest, has gotten some bug thing. Today I am on the couch, in a nest made for me by Marcy, watching Star Trek movies and feeling rather miserable, but trying for once, not to be mad at myself...as if I am some super human who is never ever supposed to be "down" even for a minute.
I have been reading a couple of interesting books over the last week, including Age is Just a Number by Olympic swimmer, Dara Torres, and so I leave you with a quote that has been floating around in my brain since I read it:
"...the real reason most of us fear middle age is that middle age is when we give up on ourselves."
