Happy Birthday!

What a wonderful birthday I had yesterday! All started off the eve before when Rainer and I had a good talk about our priorities. That day I’d been thinking about our health versus overcommitment to morgages. Unbeknowst to me Rainer had been surfing wellness sides the same morning! Wow how in sync are we!!! We both feel it’s more important to commit to our health than overcommit to a morgage. So no buying a house at this stage in our lives. It feels so right. We’ve decided that in 5 years time we want to be fitter and healthier than we where 15 years ago! We deserve the best! It’s all very exciting and a bit scary too of course… many changes will lie ahead. Stop smoking, better diet, my knees,  teeth etc. It will be quiet a journey and we decided we are entitled to get some great help along the way. Gonna be fun to explore that too.
So yesterday I felt truely blessed to have such an amazing man at my side! So grateful that we want the same things out of life.
I’m so excited about what lies ahead of me this year. Blessed to have Rainer and Silke to hold my hand when needed, I feel so ready for the changes that have been a long time coming…
Woohoohooo how wonderful to be old enough and wise enough to listen to my deepest needs!
TFL and I wish you all a fabulous weekend 🙂

    How wonderful you and Rainer are on the same page. All the best with your goals – it’s great to go into them with a positive, excited mind set. I found that worked for me regarding weight loss. Maybe concentrate on one thing at a time?
