Inspiration Found at a Cher Concert

🎶 🎵 Inspiration can be found everywhere, even at a Cher Concert! 🎵🎶

🎰I was in Las Vegas over the weekend & we decided to see Cher in concert at the Park theatre in the Monte Carlo casino. She put on a great show, and all I kept thinking, throughout the whole show, was how inspiring she was! I want to be dancing around in body-hugging clothes when I am 70 and beyond! 😊😊😊

She isn’t rail thin, she just looked very healthy & obviously in shape. Her voice was in good form as well. No need for her to ‘Turn Back Time’ as she is a timeless performer.

🎶🎵She is an entertainer & didn’t seem to take herself too seriously. She spoke with confidence and humor to the audience. Her show took us though all the decades of Cher songs, acting, hair styles, and amazing costumes!

💃🕺Her dancers were spectacular to watch & the stage was colorful & 100% entertaining! We enjoyed a fun montage of her acting roles and seeing her accept her academy award for Moonstruck. She sang all her favorites from “I’ve got you Babe”, & “After All” to Ending the show with her big hit, ‘Believe’. 🎶🎵

⭐️⭐️The best lines were part of her opening monologue. She told the audience that she works hard to stay in shape and was excited to tell all of us that she did a 5 minute plank that morning! Then, she said, “What’s YOUR granny doing tonight?”🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂

Too funny! Just had to share because I found myself inspired by her confidence & spunk.

Look for inspiration every day, as you never know where it will pop up next! Who inspires you?  Feel free to share in the comments!

PS:  I took the photos above at the concert and made this little collage.

Posing like a star outside the concert just before we saw Cher perform! Lots of fun!

We Must Cultivate Our Own Garden - Voltaire

🌷Tend To Your Own Weight Loss Garden🌿

🌷We Must Cultivate Our Own Garden – Voltaire 🌿

Just a little ‘Spring-Inspired” Mindful Musing introspection as we finish up the month of March.

🐉Untended gardens look wild and overgrown. Overgrown with weeds means the plants are at the mercy of animals and insects. Sometimes, a neglected garden looks pretty on the outside, but get up close & you’ll see all the lost potential. Don’t let a few wild off-plan days ruin all the efforts you’ve planted in the past. Seeds take root somewhat quickly, but sometimes, sprouts may take weeks or months.

🌀We MUST tend to our own personal gardens of weight loss & maintenance. It is not optional, we must take care of ourselves & place our personal needs at the top of our lists (most days!). Old habits will creep back into our routines & it could lead to a complete collapse of our other hard work to lose or maintain weight.

🎋I chose the Voltaire saying “We Must Cultivate Our Own Garden” for this post because it sums up all the prepare-for-spring ideas I had for this month of March. When we focus on mini-goals each day or week, looking at the calendar or our watches becomes unnecessary. Instead, we can measure the passage of time by what we have or haven’t accomplished. We can look back and see what we learned & what still needs work. This gained knowledge marks the time more than any calendar could…or SCALE for that matter!

🍁We cultivate our weight loss wins by working on creating better habits that will serve us well for the long term. Review your larger goals & break them down into their components. See if you can create a routine for regular ‘maintenance’. A garden has to be attended to regularly, because if you just gave it everything it needed in one day, it wouldn’t help with the growing process.

🔆We are the owners of our own unique ‘gardens’ of functional routines, joy, fitness, & food, so we have to take responsibility for nurturing the seeds of our personal growth. No one else is going to magically know what you need unless you have taken the time to identify what those needs are…and even then, you need to tend to those needs on a regular basis. Never forget that YOU are in charge of you!

🌞Sunshine is a key nurturing agent for our mental health & it also reminds us to get outside and enjoy some fresh air. Spring is a great time to get some more outside time.

🌸So, pull out the weeds, drink plenty of water, and tend to your own soil so you can grow more confident, joyful, and secure in your ability to lose/maintain the weight. 😊

😁I am ‘rooting’ for ALL of you! Let’s do this. The time is now.

How will YOU tend to your weight loss garden?

(And fyi: I do not garden as I have zero patience for it. My plants think they live in a desert!) 🌵🌵🌵
