High Five Friday

High 5 Friday February 12 2016  happyfitmama.com

It’s Fri-YAY! Time to celebrate the good from the week with High Five Friday. No clue what I’m talking about? Get all the details HERE and link up with your own High 5.

5 from Instagram – I share more pics on Instagram. Are you following me?

1. The most gorgeous sunset after a snowstorm last week. The colors were amazing! Btw – there’s no filter on that photo. It’s all natural!

2. Winter wonderland on my run.

3. Why not Crow Places after a run?

4. You guys need to get this limited edition Stonyfield Oh My Yog! It’s wicked hard to find but the New England Maple is THE best. You know it’s going to be good when you pop the lid off and smell nothing but delicious maple syrup.

5. The wind may blow. The weight may be heavy. But I am strong. I am a warrior.

5 Things

1. Being Present: Creating a Memory – When I first read this, all I could picture was Alec Baldwin when he guest starred on Friends as Phoebe’s boyfriend. He wanted to take mental snapshots to remember every moment. This article is kind of like that except that it points out the bigger picture – When you are experiencing an enjoyable time (traveling, eating, etc), be present in that moment. I think that’s something we all need to work on.

2. Re-Imagining Chinese New Year for my children – I’m so happy for Christine! Her writing is outstanding and I’m glad that more people are seeing that. This is just one of her many wonderful pieces. And I think it’s a topic that we all can relate to. Are you passing on your families traditions to your kids?

3. Don’t Focus on the Dog Shit – This piece is a couple of years old but it still fits. “Don’t focus on the guy who hates you. You don’t go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog shit.” Look for the good – it’s always there!

4. When Schools Teach Meditation, Something Amazing Happens – I’ve been adding a little meditation into my life recently. It’s hard to shut off my brain chatter but I really do think it’s needed for every single person young and old. After reading this, I think so even more.

5. What My Father’s Escape From Cuba Taught Me About Being An Athlete – And I’m so happy for Allie! I loved reading the story of her how her father came to the U.S. and the life lessons he has passed on to her. Now I know why she is so awesome!

  2. AHHHH!! Thanks so much for including my article. I’ve been working on it forever so it’s a huge relief for it to be out there!!! And, I absolutely loved Christine’s article as well and am looking forward to reading the others – especially the one about the dog shit 🙂 LOL!
    And that sunset? OH MY GORGEOUS!
    Have a great weekend!

    • You must! I’ve only found one store here in NH that sell it – Market Basket. I bought ALL of the available containers. That may have been 10 or so…
