The Good With the Bad

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball that whacks you right upside the head.
That's what happened 2 months ago.
I've been working through it, reassessing my priorities, trying to find a new balance and rhythm to my days.
My daily walks are my meditation and very necessary for my sanity.
Helps to clear all the clutter from my brain.
And the added benefit is that I have lost weight and inches in the process.

My husband and I took a trip to Dubai last week which is always a lot of fun.
 And right now my friend, Mona, is visiting from Lebanon so there's been lots of food and get togethers.  
Thank goodness for friends, family and good times.
Hope all is well with you!

Peaceful Walking

I've been walking nearly every single day for the past month and a half.
For me, despite the heat, I still find early mornings and late afternoon bearable.
When I'm walking, I get into a zone and all is right with the world.
It's as if all my thoughts and worries are filtered out with each step I take.
And once home again, I feel calmer, more energized and healthier.
It also gives me an opportunity to focus on the pretty parts to be found.
Believe me, on the whole, Kuwait is not much to look at.
But there is beauty everywhere if we seek it.
We had an unexpected day off on Thursday which meant a 3-day weekend.
Tomorrow begins my last full week of school.
Yesterday our leaving teachers were treated to one last dust storm to remind them of their time in Kuwait.
Good thing I walked early!

I hope all is bright and beautiful in your corner of the world.
