Be Awesome Today!

Today my second child is 5 years old. That’s him in the biggest photo, with the biggest smile, wrestling around with my Dad and Sister on a trip to CA last year. See him off to the right with his arms flung up, running full bore with abandon, giggling with glee? That’s my brilliant boy Ben!Ben leaps headfirst into everything, loving life, ready for action, can’t hold still for a second. Sometimes his focus on living in the moment leads to disaster…like when he snapped his glasses in half (twice) or this weekend when he managed to chip two of my husband’s teeth accidentally while literally CLIMBING THE WALLS (well, the doorways) of our home like Spider-man.

Finding myself, my passion and… « 30andlearning

a recipe for Mojito Cheesecake Pops.  Thank you www.sprinklebakes.com.  I am absolutely going to make these on the weekend…especially if my cousin and I get together for lunch on Sunday–as she is a big mojito fan as well–though, I reckon I will try to make these with white chocolate instead.  Thoughts?But I digress on the baking front.  Yesterday’s moment of peace and semi clarity at the bakery and this impending feeling of me, my life and how I live it, being on a weird precipice…like something great is about to happen…but a few more things need to fall into line, including, and most importantly my “self.”  I need to get my head and heart into the game so that, when these things fall into line and there are choices to be made in terms of paths to follow, I will be ready and willing to take the right path for me.So that means that I ended up spending a good chunk of cash on some self-help e-books about building self-confidence, trying to end self-defeating behaviours, finding your passion, etc. In the coming weeks I will read them all, tell you all what is interesting about them, what I will work on in terms of developing my self and what the books mention.  Hopefully I can be the guinea pig that may just help you become your best self, too.  Oh and for the record, I am NOT trying to be Oprah. lolAnyway, on that note, I have grants to evaluate, phone calls to return, forms to fill out and tea (David’s Tea–Chai Guarana) to brew so I don’t pass out from exhaustion during an impending conference call.Much luv,LeesahP.S. Yesterday I managed to rock out a slow and steady inclined 6 miles!  Not sure how this is possible–maybe it is the fact that I am eating carbs again. lol  Oh and this shoulder thing is nuts–it hurts to put on my running/compression tights and take off sports bras. WTF.Like this:Like2 bloggers like this. Continue reading

Book Review: Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts

Chasing FireAuthor: Nora RobertsPublication: Putnam Adult; 1ST edition (April 12, 2011); PB Jove (April 3, 2012)Description: The number-one New York Times-bestselling author delves into the world of elite firefighters who thrive on danger and adrenaline–men and women who wouldn’t know how to live life if it wasn’t on the edge.There’s little as thrilling as firefighting–at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. At this point, returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home–even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering.Fortunately, this year’s rookie crop is one of the strongest ever–and Gulliver Curry’s one of the best. He’s also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids’ arcade.Everything is thrown off balance when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year’s tragedy.
