ON TEMPTATIONS

I thought about temptations this morning, and how relatively easy it is to give in, to dent the promise. I can resonate often with Lord Darlington famed quip in Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan (1892), “I can resist everything except temptation.”

So I thought of ATTEMPT-ations. Keep attempting, keep trying. Do the best you can do with what you have, with who you are, with where you are.

      Today I am grateful for... stepping out of my comfort zone again -I am on the agenda for my first speech with Toastmasters; wrote another excerpt for my book to deliver today at the Writer's Club meeting; starting a 30 day "Planking" challenge; nervous excitement; confidence; accomplishing goals; love, abundance and wellness.

      I'm a functional trainer, a cyclist and a lover of exploring nature. A couple of sports related injuries have been making me be more creative. Looking at fitness in new ways and I've been glancing towards yoga again.

      By glancing I mean kind of like when you see someone interesting in a crowd and glance their way, non-chalantly between...
