Rainbow I saw while driving to work this morning

I woke up this morning feeling a little less than Fabulous.  I blamed it on the early alarm clock (set for 4:45AM so that I could get a little cardio in before starting the Nursing Home at 6:30)  I did my cardio and felt STRONG, but a little “Off”.  This feeling would stay with me for the entire day!!  I had some Awesome highlights!!  For example, one patient told my 2 nurses and me that we were a Beautiful group of ladies!! (So Sweet)  I also got to share in one of my friends process of “evolving” which is pretty darn cool to witness.  It just makes me look forward to my own Evolution that much more!!  It wasnt until around 10:15PM that I “Faced” my New “Life Lesson”  The reason I was feeling less than the best…. The Reason is that I am an “OMITTER” 

OMIT~  To leave something or somebody out:  to fail to include or mention something or somebody deliberately or accidentally

I will leave out little tidbits to “Avoid” conflict!!  (I also had a friend call me an “Avoider” today, but I will discuss that in a future post).  It was a Dear Friend that pointed this out to me tonight (That I am an omitter).  She handled me with TOTAL CARE.  Before enlightening me on what she later told me I already knew (she was correct) She asked me if I was “open”.  Open to hear, open to listen, open to share, open to GROW….. My response was YES!!!!!  We “spoke” for a while and I “Heard” every word.  Armed with the tools that the “Lesson” taught me, I was able to apply the knowledge and the lines of communication were repaired….. I’m still unsure of what the future holds, but I’m extremely hopeful….Thank You, Angel!!!! *Hugs*

Have “YOU” learned any “Life Lessons” recently?  If so, please share….Let’s learn TOGETHER!!!! 😉

Season Finale of Grey's Anatomy

Just finished watching the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy!!!!!  Let me just say….WOW!!!!!!!  If you were on Twitter, you MIGHT have seen some naughty words fly OUT OF MY MOUTH and ONTO THE TWITTER SCREEN!!!!  If you witnessed this, please forgive me!!  This episode was SO INTENSE!!!  It had me on the edge of my seat THE ENTIRE NIGHT!!!!  I won’t give any spoilers…. Instead, I will share with you that many of my patients refer to me as “Dr. Bailey” It COULD be because we are both African-American female Doctors with “Pleasantly Plump” Booties BUT I prefer to think that it’s because we are both BRILLIANT and KICK ARSE at what WE DO!!! *Huge Cheesy Smile*  Any who, there was a scene that TOUCHED me DEEPLY…. The scene where Dr. Bailey took “him” in her arms and said “You Are Not Alone” … AMAZING PERFORMANCE!!!!  In the midst of my TEARS (yes…there were many tears) I thought about the fact that, just 8 hours earlier…. I received a video from a friend…. a song I Love… that took on a new meaning….

Do You Believe In Coincidence?!?

“YOU ARE NOT ALONE”

 FRIDAY APRIL 16,2010

Sitting at home, relaxing after a crazy day at the nursing home, my doorbell rings….I was told to be on the lookout for a package that should arrive by 3!!  As I scoop my 2 dogs up in my arms, I look at the time….3:20PM!!  I begin to smile!!  Sure enough, it’s the fedEx guy!!!  Yipee!!!!  I sign, close the door, and tell @jeninRL (who is on the phone) that I just received my first Birthday gift of the year!!!  Once opening the box, I started with this…..

 

There was the cutest singing card!!! JUST PERFECT!!

To TRULY know me is to know that I am a CHEERFUL GIVER!!  It comes naturally!!  What is hard for me, is Receiving!!  I will go out of my way to avoid the situation!!  THIS is my current life lesson!!  To be a gracious, cheerful receiver!!! Reiki teaches you to open your heart!!  I am LEARNING to OPEN my heart to ALLOW others to show ME love as I so willingly and easily show Love to them!!  When I saw the “Goodies” in this Birthday “Care Package” I was not only speechless, But MOVED TO TEARS!!!!  Not only moved by the abundance of the generosity, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, that it was the gift of REST!!!  PEACEFUL SLEEP!!  Something that eludes me 90% of the time!!!  This was the contents in the Bag:

Lavender Vanilla "SLEEP" Massage Oil, lotion, candles,etc

I tried my best to find the words to Thank Lori for the gift.  As a second gift to me, she simply Blackberry messaged me “No words necessary..ENJOY”    Lori, you are SUCH A GENTLE SPIRIT….So today, in this post, I want to say…..

THANK YOU, My Friend…….

APRIL 14, 2010

12:01 AM…..This AMAZING Day began!!  I had 2 missions for this day! 1.  Be the first to wish my Dear friend Lori happy birthday and 2.  receive my first Reiki attunement.  The first mission was accomplished with perfect timing!!  Staying  up this late has its drawbacks.   I OVERSLEPT for my workout!!  No worries (I thought to myself) I will get in my cardio after work.  I had a hectic day in the Health Center (as always).  I left around 2:30 and headed home to get mentally prepared to receive my Reiki Attunement.  I changed into relaxing attire and called my Dear friend @dailykat . She is my guide/teacher on this journey.   After we spoke, I went to my relaxing spot, set up as she suggested.  I relaxed, grounded myself , and accepted the Reiki Attunement from Kat.  Ahhhhhhhh……The EXPERIENCE was, in a word…FANTABULOUS!!!!!  I felt more ALIVE, more ENERGETIC, More RELAXED than I have in a VERY LONG TIME!!!!!!  I looked on my blackberry in the group and saw that My Dear friend @kthenb had just completed a 5K…FOR FUN!!! I also knew that my “Twin” @teetee_71 was crushing it on the bike at the gym!!  Feeling BRAND NEW and completely and totally INSPIRED, I decided to catch the sunset 5 minutes from my house and walk/jog a 5K!!  I DID IT!!!  It was BEAUTIFUL!!  I took  ALL OF YOU WITH ME!!! 
 
THANK ALL OF YOU FOR LOVING AND SUPPORTING ME!!!!! XOXO

The Beginning of my "Personal" 5K (Wednesday 4/14/10)
