I’m having a rough time this week. Usually, I can’t type fast enough to get my thoughts onto the screen, but this week I’ve been drawing a blank. I’ve sat down to write this week’s post three times and come up with a whole lot of nothing. So I’m simply going to write about what’s on my mind, and what’s been consuming my thoughts as of late. Perhaps you’ll agree.
- The World Junior Hockey Championships.
Did you see that game last night? C’mon! I will be suffering today through the stayed-up-too-late fog, but happily so. I think World Junior hockey is the best hockey of the entire year and I’m a huge hockey fan. I’ve been to three WJHCs (Red Deer 1995, Ottawa 2009, and Buffalo 2011) and here it was, practically in my backyard, and I didn’t get to a single game in-person. But I cheered from my couch, with my kids, so I’ll take it. Nostalgia and memory-making all rolled into one.
- The Pan Am torch relay.
If you’ve been following my posts, you will know that I’ve been selected as a finalist to run the Pan Am torch through Burlington this Summer. My neighbour nominated me without my knowledge, and it has consumed my thoughts ever since. What an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity it would be; it puts a smile on my face just to think of it. Please take a moment to vote and help me win this chance: click HERE to get to the City of Burlington’s Pan Am website. Voting is open until January 15th. Thanks in advance.
- My energetic patient, 3-year-old M, who’s had such incredible results from chiropractic care.
I blogged about him a couple of weeks ago, and his improvement continues to grow. His mother has written such powerful words about the positive effect that treatment has had on him:
“So anyone that has children has talked about poop at some time or another? I just have to say how ecstatic I am about my child’s poop today! I know..tmi..but this is worth the read. I brought Mason to a chiropractor after so many failed attempts to get his constipation under control with diet and medication. Low and behold after my second visit to see Ashley Worobec we saw results, but nothing like we saw today after our fifth visit! I can truly attest that seeing a chiropractor has changed our lives. Do not just go to anyone, Ashley Worobec truly cares and has been fanstastic through this whole process. Even potty training is coming along. Here is to a great start to 2015. — feeling thankful.”
I feel very lucky to have the job that I do, and it’s times like these that make me even more grateful.
- New Year’s resolutions.
I think of the New Year as a fresh start, and fully support resolutions/goals/modifications for the year ahead. I will be doing another Whole Life Challenge (I did the first one in the Fall) and I invite you to join me. It’s 8-weeks of challenging many aspects of your life, including nutrition, exercise, and mental well-being. It begins on January 17th.
Also, I’m thinking of this graphic:
That’s it. Those are the thoughts filling up my brain, taking up valuable blog space. And also, this:
I often think of this.
Words to live by.
