You’re thinking what would this have to do with my health fitness journey? My brother can testify that music was in our house 24/7/365. Saturday was officially the “Cleaning Day” and the hi-fi stereo would play 33, 45, and 78-sized vinyl records. As I got older, music HAD to be part of my daily commute, whether driving or using public transportation. And I couldn’t wait to prepare a workout playlist! When I took Zumba and Beginning Belly dance classes, it didn’t make it seem like a workout. It was just something fun to do.
The world has recently lost a really good “parent of music.” I’m still in shock. We all are. Those who are true fans know of his work and the impact it made. DO WE NEED ANY MORE REMINDERS OF HOW PRECIOUS LIFE IS?!?! We as human beings can’t continue our lives as we know it. Even the late Michael Jackson said it best with the song “Man in the Mirror.”
I’m starting with the Man in the mirror
I’m asking him to make a change…
…If you want to make the world a better place, just look at yourself and make a change.
No powerful words have ever been spoken. I took the train from one Station to another then walked the rest of the way to my destination this afternoon. It was a good excuse to get my 20 minutes of cardio in. It was strongly suggested by my primary care provider to do this 3 times a week to lower my cholesterol. Now I have a new journey in getting prescription eyeglasses. I’ve never had to wear them until now. Once I get them, you’ll see me in a picture with them.
Saturday was the first one in a while that I didn’t have a meeting or run errands. Those don’t come by easily lol. I spent most of the day at home; did some chores; walked to the nearby Dollar General (yes, walked). I do my best.
Since I haven’t been able to stop playing this artist’s music, you know these songs will be shared in this post.
May u live 2 c the dawn…
