Today is the first day of 5th grade (last year as an elementary student) for Isaac and the first day of 7th grade for Payton!! It is bittersweet to see them grow, but I am so grateful for the people they are and the young men they are becoming! I am one proud papa!
This weekend we had a blast as a family! Friday we met my parents for lunch, and Saturday and Sunday we had big soccer tourney for Payton. We also cooked some amazing salmon and veggies outside, then started a fire in the chiminea and told stories. It was a great family weekend to end the summer vacation. The kids and sheri go back to school this week.
Last night we had a regional meeting with some amazing Chiropractors and their amazing Chiropractic Assistants. It was a great meeting. We focused on the importance of goals, but how goals don’t “drive” us, it’s the purpose behind the goals, the WHY that truly drives. I was honored to speak at the event on the subject and even more honored to be a part of such a special group of people. We don’t get together to discuss billing, or insurance, or xrays or etc. We get together to see how we can serve others better. Our missions “jive” in that we just want to help as many people as we can, and we get together to help each other along that path!
Yesterday, I was blessed to go to lunch with Isaac, my 10 year old boy. He came with me to my weekly adjustment (yes, us chiropractors get adjusted too to stay healthy :), then we went to Jason’s Deli (his choice) where he had a sandwich almost as big as his head, and then we jammed to some awesome music we found on Soundcloud.com. Great day!
I am so thankful to be able to spend time with my kids, my wife, and my friends like that! I am blessed and truly grateful!
I am grateful for our paddleboards, from yoga to fishing, to just floating with our puppy dogs. I love the versatility and the new places we get to explore.
The past week or so has been kinda “blah” on the energy front… It happens to us all. And it can happen for a looooooong time if we let it. The choice is ours to make sure a fluke in mentality doesn’t become a full-on-funk.
I am grateful for great books that help switch my mental state to a positive one!
I am grateful for great music that makes my heart bounce, and my energy flow!
I am grateful for amazing friends and family that make my soul shine!
I am grateful for nature and immersing myself in it (whether that be for a minute or 60+) has a way to re-energize and revitalize.
I am grateful for all these things/people that are within inches from me at any given time, all I have to do is reach out and let them in :)!
