Monday -Done.

Last night, after I wrote that post, I cried myself to sleep.  But I woke up with a better attitude and a different mind-set.  I took inventory of my emotions and put them in check.  I realized that I have been so busy trying to "fix" everyone else and being there for "them" that I have been neglecting myself.  All the signs were there.  And I'm all too familiar with them! But I chose to ignore them.  Until now.  I made a lot of plans and set goals for myself this year, and none of it is going to happen unless I start focusing on me again, instead of everyone else.  And that' s exactly what I'm going to do.  Today was a good day. 

I start a dance class tomorrow that I signed up for last week.  It's an hour long  hip-hop cardio class.  I'll be taking it once a week for 8 weeks.  Ha-ha! I am one of the most uncoordinated klutz in the world! I can't wait to see what or who I bump into!  But I love dancing and it's boasts of being a great calorie burner, so I'm doing it. 

Finally, I just wanted to say thanks to all the comments and/or emails I received yesterday and today regarding my post from last night.   I am so grateful and appreciate all of you very much for that!

Thanks for coming to my playground.   Recess is now over.

You will have fun with that dance class I know it! Also it's okay, we all need a cry once in a while, it helps puts us in perspective and such. Now a days I've been doing at least once every 2 weeks haha.

You'll be fine Auntie Yvonne! <3

I do Zumba even if I have to drag myself there and I always feel better after. Something about the music and the exercise that just makes me feel happy

Sending you hugs

I often find myself asking "what happened to my plans? What about my new year resolutions? Why, instead of making steady progess toward my goals, does it feel like I've lost all momentum and come to a complete halt?" That's a critical point in time. You can let your inner voice tell you that it's not worth the effort and give up or you can overrule that voice of defeat, kick the universe squarely in the butt, and say "I'm the boss. I'm in charge." That's using your personal power and I applaud you for making that choice, Yvonne.

Good for you, Yvonne. I can't think of anything better to lift one's spirits than a dance class. How can you feel bad enjoying music and moving along with it?

I haven't yet tried a Zumba class which I am dying to do, however, I have done a hip hop class and OMG. I was a total retard. It was super fun! LOL

Oh, Yvonne. Timing is everything. Today is a new day. I hope that your hip hop class gives you a new and better perspective. Just remember that it can happen so fast or a little bit late. Timing is everything.

I'm so glad you are taking care of you. A dance class sounds great, though I would be pretty klutzy too. Now, keep up the good work and don't fall back into the old pattern, dance class is much more fun :)

Nothing cures disappointment like hip-hop! I promise you!

Mynx - It was tons of fun! I predict I will become addicted. And it made me feel great!

Shady - That's what I'm striving for!

Belle - Thanks sweetie! I definitely felt better!

Rita - ha! I felt the same way!!! :)

Robin - yes it is. The class itself helped me feel good. I'm glad I signed up!
