New mail this week included something I like to think as delivered by The Universe.
I found these two photocopied sheets in a book I borrowed from the library. They were not copies made from this particular book. The last person that borrowed the book was in 2013 & it shows the date information on one sheet is 4/3/2013 9:12AM. One sheet is about Authenticity is a daily practice & a list of the authenticity daily practices from Dr Brene Brown (who is an author I greatly admired). The other sheet does not indicate from which book it is photocopied from, just shows pages 182 & 183, but it too is about being authentic within friendships. What I take from the overall messages are that being yourself brings connection, grace, joy & gratitude into our lives. Thanks Universe for this mail.
Other mail on Friday included flyers about body well being. Several of the local grocery stores now offer in store dietitian counseling & the Eat How You Want To Feel is their publication.
Several levels of government are getting involved in the diet of the people. Not sure how I am feeling about this, but it seems (& I cannot argue with the logic) the obesity levels are still on the rise.
So all fast food places must list the calorie intake of each food item & already there is a drop in the purchase of upsized drinks, fries & other treats, so maybe government intervention is a positive thing.
On the happy news front, Mr Man received an all healed & the OK to return to work from the eye surgeon at his Friday appointment. Mr Man does need to take some drops twice a day for 2 weeks & follow up with our local eye specialist. NO MORE TORONTO VISITS!
Over the last year we drove to this Toronto hospital 19 times, 2 visits were surgeries. Every appointment was between 7:00am & 8:00am. Each drive was 174 kilometers roundtrip; each time we drove on 7 major highways & one of those highways, The Gardiner Expressway at some points were 7 lanes across in one direction (14 to/fro lanes). I drove 9 of those times. I think we consumed about 36 cups of hospital tea, 10 raisin tea biscuits; 4 donuts. Thankfully the hospital waiting areas had very current magazines & I was able to glean at least 4 new recipes. Thankful for such good medical care & great doctors & hospital staff, but SO thankful the end results are good & that we do not have to go back! Now this is the way to start a Monday.
