Yesterday, when I was on Cape Cod visiting fellow blogger Mark Bialczak, his lovely and dear wife Karen, and their filled-with-vitality dog Ellie B. (a/k/a Dogamous Pyle), I noticed this:
Mark and Karen both told me I had more vitality than the last time they saw me, two years ago. I said that was probably due to my heart valve replacement last September. I told Mark he seemed much happier than when I had seen him last and he agreed, with vitality.
Spending time with wonderful people, like Mark and Karen, is very good for my vitality.
Do you see vitality in my other photos from yesterday?
Personally, I think that last photo has the most vitality.
As I face a lot of vital changes — including selling a home, buying a home, moving near the water, and returning to work full time next month — I need to preserve my vitality.
What helps preserve my vitality?
- Self care.
- Caring for others.
- Spending time with great people.
- Getting enough sleep (working on that).
- Eating right.
- Good vacations (so I’ll be visiting Scotland with my son in August).
- Letting go of worry.
- Listening to music.
Pat Metheny playing “Song for Bilbao” during a second encore Sunday night improved my vitality, big time.
What improves your vitality? I hope you know your comments are excellent for my vitality.
Vital thanks to all who helped me create today’s blog post and to you — of course! — for the vitality you bring here, now.
