Some New Things with a review

No excuse for my absence, just laziness. My search for “New Things” has continued,here are a few of my latest with a little review.

First a place to go, RISD Museum on South Main Street in Providence, RI. I attended the Impressionist Exhibit a couple of weeks ago. The exhibit itself was worth the visit, but there was so much more, I spent two hours wandering about with a group of new acquaintances from one of my Meet Up Groups.  The museum also has a good coffee shop and a more than adaquate gift shop, it offers free admission on Sundays. I’m embarrased to say this was my first visit , but it won’t be my last.

Secondly, something healthy: Zeal For Life, is a nutritional drink from Zurvita, that was reccomended to me by my brother. I decided to give it try the beginning of this month and since starting Zeal, I have more energy, I’m not falling asleep in the middle of the day,my mood is better I feel great! Zeal is all natural and is easily absorbed and assimilated by the body. Believe me I was very skeptical when I first tried zeal and I honestly have made no other changes in my diet, or life that could account for my feeling 10 to 15 years younger!

Number three, a skin product; Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer. This was a freebie from one of my runs this past fall and I used it on a whim two weeks ago. Anyone who knows me, knows that every winter I get dry skin that gets irritated on both hip bones (weird I know). Every year I look for something to relieve the irritation, laundry soap, lotions (some very expensive) soaps all natural ect… the list is endless, until I tried this it works!

The fourth thing on my list is ironically the book 52 Lists for Happiness, weekly journaling for positivity, balance and joy by Moorea Seal. I’m a list maker from way back and this sort of thing appealed to me right away. I was also looking for something to fill the gap after completing the Love Your Life in 30 Days. So far it has been fun but also eyeopening. It gets you to list things that make you smile, you’re good at ect… It has given me a better appreciation of myself.

I haven’t started the fifth thing but wanted to mention it here it is a Tony Robbins CD course The Time of Your Life, three steps to take controll of your life. I start that tomorrow. A review or at least a mention will be made in my next posting.

Til then check out a thing or two from my list, you won’t regret any!

This brings my total 46! fourteen more before the 24th of March!

A Few More Things…

So — I haven’t been too diligent with recording my new things. This has more to do with time management rather than lack of “things”  to write about. At this rate I should have said this was going to be a monthly news letter rather than a blog…

In no specific order here are my latest new things: Number 25, I watched a video series by Mike Dooley on getting unstuck. I guess it helped as I’m back to blogging! Number 26, also in the same vein of getting unstuck, I’ve downloaded the  Rituals For Living dream book and planner. I’ve used multiple planners and systems in the past with varying degrees of success but this one “Ritualizes” planning and life so I’m going to give it a go. Coming in at number 27, is a tasty food treat from the Bee Hive Pantry, a sweet potato ginger square. A delicious fall flavored offering that paired well with the hot coffee they were serving up. Number 28, I attended my first Rally For Recovery and was moved beyond words listening to people in the recovery movement share their stories, work and missions. Being an adult child of an alcoholic I empathized with what these family members were going through. Number 29, will take place on Sunday, I’m running the Gloria Gemma 5k. I’m excited to be running for this cause. Knowing so many woman (including my mother, twice) who’ve bravely fought this battle, and especially for the three friends who lost that battle. I feel this is the very least I can do!

There you have the latest, I’m pretty close to being on track, I need to be at 30 new things by tomorrow. So I better get on it!

I pray it won’t take me a month to write about it!

Slow Progress but progress…

It appears three weeks is my groove for documenting my “new things”…

To say this month has been crazy would somehow minimize crazy! August to me is like the .1 in the 3.1 of a 5k, all the hard work is supposedly behind you the finish line is in sight yet it reamains painful.  In the martial art industry summers are busy but a different sort of busy, and at my school we don’t break until the 20th of August. So our.1 has been split shifts of camp and routine evening schedule. This in of itself is wearing but this whole month has been!

Enough whinning here’s what I’ve added to my list thus far; My brother and sister-in-law treated me to lunch at a new local Mexican returaunt called Casa Maguritta. I had tacos they were ok but a little grey in color first they were more like burritos in a soft taco shell. I may or may not go back but there’s another new thing. My next new thing is another app the Udemy app, I’m currently reviewing Pema Chodron’s Freedom to Choose Something Different. This is a series of lectures she gave at a retreat and well worth the $39.00! I’m also going to be running a 5k this Saturday for the MS Society, I’ve run a bunch of 5K’s but this is going to be the first I’ve done in the evening.

So slow and steady, just like my 5k
