in 06-07, I embarked on an amazingprogram called Metaphysique  with Life Coach Clint Griess.  
'Metaphysiques is a coaching program that takes a metaphysical approach to exercise.  By blending your own unique take on spirituality with physical exercise, you can achieve a level of fitness that has escaped you until now.'

Connecting my higher power to my physical body WHILE I worked out was the best thing I had ever done in my life.   The workouts were full of intention and gratitude instead of begrudging reps and daydreaming to pass the time.
For once, I had clarity.  Sweet, sweaty clarity.  My body was my moving temple.
However, I recently had what Oprah calls, an "AHA! Moment."   - now, that I am in "mommy-physique" and in the thick of it with Weight Watchers (down 17lbs!!) it would be most appropriate to reconnect with the same juice that got my blood flowing. 
So, I have committed to not only immersing myself in the program once again  but to also allowing spi…

My First

It wasn't a letters so much as it was a mass produced  copy of an (unsigned) rejection notice  printed on a 4x6" piece of yellow paper  that was cut most likely by an intern.

When one door closes, another opens.   In another envelope sat invitations for family and friends  for an art show I will be part of next weekend.   Here's to keeping chins up.
