This week I had an experience that shook me a bit. . I am a very introspective person. I don't think anything happens by chance and when something gives me a raddle I tend to spend a lot of time reflecting on it and learning from it. . We planned a nice girls day out with my 88 year old Grandma. And before the day even got started, we had an accident. . My grandma lost her balance and fell. Our nice day out turned into an anxious few hours in an ER where we learned that she had an injury that required surgery. . One tiny moment, one minor lapse in body awareness not only changed our day but her life for the foreseeable future. She is currently recovering from a successful surgery and soaking up all the healing vibes she can get. But the lessons I learned that day are profound. . No. 1) Grace. My Grandma is one of a kind, she is so full of love and gratitude for every single thing around her. Despite her injury and the looming troubles to come, there was no drama. She was upbeat and loving, happy to have her family near. . No. 2) Acceptance. It was an accident. There was nothing anyone of us could have done to prevent what happened. Everyones priorities shifted in a moment and no one hesitated, no one complained, we took our fears and our worries and our sadness and put them in our back pocket because there was no place for it there. . No. 3) Our bodies are amazing. But we are not invincible. I've been told this before, encouraged to be more cautious. But its awareness that holds more power than caution. Caution holds fear. Where awareness just being realistic about body and our surroundings. . No. 4) This is my only body and there are things about it that I can control, and things that I cannot. . My grandma is happy and fearless in a very difficult situation. My family is supportive and loving without question. Faced with fear and tragedy everyone just did what they needed to do. . I spend a lot of my life stumbling over my priorities, caught up with fear and excuses. If it's possible to take this as a lesson, an example of how to face this life every day, then I have the best teachers in the world. . Have you ever had a moment shake you awake?

David Ayres (42 years and 194 days old) became the oldest goalie to win his regular-season debut, according to the NHL. Hugh Lehman (Chicago) was 41 years and 21 days old. After Carolina goalies James Reimer and Petr Mrazek left because of injuries, the Hurricanes were forced to turn to 42-year-old David Ayres, who was watching the game at Scotiabank Arena with his wife. (Home teams are required to have an emergency goalie on-call who is available to either team.) Ayres entered in the middle of the second period after Mrazek went down. Even though he allowed two goals on the first two shots against, Ayres made the next eight stops to preserve the 6-3 win. He got paid $500 per a try-out agreement contract and was allowed to keep his jersey. But that’s just one part of this feel-good story. Here are something else to know about Ayres, who was born in Whitby, Ontario. 15 years ago David received a kidney transplant. HOW ABOUT THAT? 💚💚💚 #kidney #kidneytransplant #hockey #nhl #goalie #carolina #hurricanes #bestlife

I've been battling with this for a while. I know my body needs to move, but I knew my mind needed quiet. Being who I am, I couldn't combine the two. I needed to dive deep into myself. I couldn't do this while taking care of my physical self. I had to make the decision of what mattered most. My emotional well being came first. Don't get me wrong....I understand the relationship between mind and body. If you exercise you'll feel better. Yes. You will. But, if your mind and emotions are out of whack....exercise is just more daunting. It's just more stress on the mind. At least that's how it is with me. I've been doing the emotional and mental work while not being consistent with the physical work. It's now time to get back to the physical work. #bleedblue #myoilyjourney #bestlife #yleo #healthandwellness #liveyourdream #excited #youreworthit #youareenough #bebold #liveyourdream #selfwork #strong #strongwomen #grateful #youngliving #essentialoils
