I've been spending a lot of time on my music, writing it, practicing, and such. I'm actually working on it right now...well, kind of...I'm taking a quick break to write a blog. I'm so proud of myself for working so diligently on my music. I feel so musical. Ha, ha. That's amusing.
The motorcycle accident that happened in front of our house over the weekend has really been on my mind the last couple of days. To be honest with you, I'm a little traumatized from the whole thing. I definitely think that God gave me emotional strength and wisdom to deal with the whole thing. I'm glad that I was able to help, but I don't think the pictures I have inside of my head from the accident will ever go away...the man with his missing leg, the exposed bone, the bike on its side, the truck, the body fluids and pieces on the road...they almost haunt me. But I'm still glad that I was able to help, so I guess in the end, it was worth it.
This has REALLY been a stressful summer, but the good news is that I AM SURVIVING!! I'm honestly surprised that I've been doing as well as I have been doing. There are two things that I give credit to my self-preservation:
1. spending time with God, reading his word, and prayer. He has truly been my strength.
2. exercise! believe it or not. I've found that exercising is a great way to keep your mind off stressful issues...plus exercising releases endorphins (sp?), which make you feel good, and I have to admit, they make me feel good too! speaking of which, I started doing a Pilates workout, along with swimming (on alternate days). And I've decided I like Pilates better than aerobics. Just so you know.
