Road-trip Adventure Tip: Stretch you legs often and play like a big kid while you do. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Came across an awesome set of rock formations, while driving down the road. Looked like something I should climb.

Needed to stretch my legs, anyway. πŸ™‚

I can’t control what other people do. I can control my reaction.

Gotta watch the whole video. Ends in a positive silly me kind of way. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This project, for many reasons, led to me loosing my mind. I let go of healthy habits and pushed too hard. I had to take a day or two away and get recentered.

I’ll post about that later, after I’ve processed a bit more.

But, I was SO CLOSE to being done. Watch and see the surprise I was left. I can’t control what others do, but I can control my reaction.

I have to remember, a lot of people show up to get a check. I make a lot of messes in my life, but try and clean them up and have pride in my work. Almost done. Few days behind. But almost done. πŸ˜‰β˜ΊοΈ

I have to recognize my strengths and use them. That came with self-love and acceptance.

There was a time, when I didn’t think I could even work again, because I allowed my bipolar disorder to run my life and systematically destroy my progress. With some hard work on mind, body, and spirit… I have found happiness and joy. Using it as a gift and grateful for the strengths I have found.

This is one of my current projects. As usual, making fun where some may net find it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Just a few more days of stupid hard work, and I’ll be able to get back into my usual routines.

Here is a video of my the project and some silly fun.

Sometimes I feel stuck. Sometimes I literally am. Either way, one step at a time…

There are many times, I have felt completely and utterly stuck. Unable to move forward. Completely overwhelmed.

Sometimes it has been in deep depression, taken on too much responsibility, or I’ve timed myself into a corner. At times I’ve felt paralyzed by fear or jumped into a project with no planning. At all.

I’ve learned, when I get to this place, to stop. Take a breath. List out what needs to be done. Then take one first step towards my goal. The next is a little easier. Before I know, I’m feeling good and I’m back on track.

Safety first… Finally.

Some lessons come easy. Sometimes I have to be beaten into submission. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Only took one more spirt of grout in my eye and 2 more Mand-aids to finally pull out some safety gear.

Safety first.

My large plastic full body bubble wouldn’t fit through the door. This will have to do. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

When I rush, I make mistakes. Some are simple, some require Mand-aids.

I have to slow myself down at times. I get in a flurried rush, and that’s when I make incorrect measurements, forget things, or slice my hands like roast beef at the local deli.

Yup. Two Mand-aids in the first hour. I went and took a moment for myself. Cleared my head. Quick breathing and meditation.

Centered and at peace.

Came back steady and strong. Progress rolled out much faster. No more double cuts on the tile or my hand.

Much better.

I’ll repost my Mand-aid video, later today. 😊

Only one cup of coffee a day: size of the cup is what matters. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

To live healthy, I only have one cup of coffee a day.

The size of the cup depends on how early I have to be up. Headed to a job site at 7 am. 1.5 liters should do. πŸ˜πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
