Ten Months Ago, Today

“THANK YOU”

Lately…

1. Every morning & night, for the last few months, I passed by my motorcycle at the front door heavy of heart. The South Florida weather had turned, and it was prime time for riding. My bike needed a full tune up & carburetor cleaning before it could be taken to the road safely. Within the last week, I asked each of two fellow riders for a referrals to their respective mechanics, carefully placing these phone numbers in my ‘Contacts’ file.
2. My knee has been acting up a bit these past couple of weeks. Despite the fact that this is largely do to my recent return to a (somewhat more) regular exercise regimen… It was also time for a new pair of sneakers. Much like tires on a car that needs a good alignment, my sneakers require regular rotating & balancing. The wear and tear I generate on the treads has always been slightly asymmetric. Not a big deal. However, in the years since my knee “destruction” & two surgical reconstructions (on top of wearing sneakers 12-14 hours a day, on at least 5 days each week), this wear pattern has regressed to being highly asymmetric. Shopping for new shoes was on my To Do list, but I just hadn’t made the time, nor the immediate cash, available to get it done.
3. Less than a month ago, I applied to take my PhD Qualifying Exams, just two days before the application deadline. I was scheduled to being the three-day exam today. I was totally unprepared.

In the last 24 hours…

1. A business colleague picked up my motorcycle, spent the whole day fixing it. It’s running great & ready to ride! No charge!
2. This morning at 5:30am my client brought me a brand new pair of ASICS Kayano. My favorite brand and model! She picked out some activewear in my Fitness Studio Boutique, and we both won!
3. Sometime after sundown yesterday, my advisor sent me an email informing me that I could not take the PhD Qualifying Exams because…get ready for this one…THE EXAM QUESTIONS HAVEN’T BEEN WRITTEN YET!

THANK YOU! 

Dear Great Spirit of The Universe,

Omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent are you.
Only do I supplicate myself to You each morning,
and I am unified with and infused by your love & grace.
I praise you.
I honor your glory.
I ask that you allow me to be Your instrument
of usefulness to my fellows.
I ask for courage.
I ask for the awareness to practice “The Golden Rule.”
I ask for blessings for my friends & family.
I ask for the stillness to listen to my Higher-Self, that is You.
I thank you for a new day, each with another opportunity
to love, learn, change (when necessary) and grow.
I ask for health, vitality and longevity, as I learn how to live.
I thank you for all the tangible toys you have given me to play with in this realm.
I ask for continued & limitless abundance & prosperity, in all things.

Only do I return to You each night, in gratitude that
You have granted me all the things I have asked for,
and infinitely more than I ever could.
I am unified with and infused with by your love & grace.
Great One of 10,000 Names, I love You.
Great One of 10,000 Names, I thank You.

Amun Ra,

About Coach Mandy

I am goal driven, knowledge seeking, challenge needing, balance finding, Child of The Universe. I believe that what I can dream, I can manifest; it's all just a matter of priorities. I've found that when I do the next right thing, life falls into place. I've learned my most valuable lessons through adversity (usually on the other side of & often long after). "I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing...” Nothing lasts forever except for the love, beauty & truth of The Great Universal Spirit. This One Source (manifested in my life as The Goddess, Isis), always loves me, finds no imperfection in me, and is perpetually & infinitely available to me. (The only other being I know of in this realm who comes close to this is my dog.) I own and operate The Coaching Corner & Pro Fitness Studio where I offer a variety of fitness services, but my true passion lies in the work I do as Personal Trainer & Fitness Coach. I enjoy all aspects of self-improvement & well-being; but I have found that my joy in working in the fitness industry lies not just in witnessing my clients achieve their goals, but in seeing them actually transform their lives. In this, I get to be a part of something greater than myself. There is nothing of value I can obtain, that does not increase a thousand fold, upon my bestowal of it to someone else. Furthermore, when I am seen by others as a leader and a role model, I am forced to be as accountable (or more) as I expect my clients to be. In this arrangement I have always gained so much more than I could ever give. I have completed my entire didactic curriculum requisites for my PhD in Exercise Physiology at University of Miami, including an outside-supporting-field in Psychology. (Doctoral Qualifying Exams and Doctoral Dissertation remain to be addressed...) My current credentials include:  • M.S.Ed., Exercise Physiology • B.S., Exercise Physiology/Biology (Double Major) • Dietetic Technician Registered (DTR)  • Licensed Certified Wellcoach® • American College of Sports Medicine, Health & Fitness Specialist (ACSM/HFS)

  1. Reading some of your older posts. Used to wear my shoes unevenly until I got custom made orthotics (by the foot doctor I worked for) no more uneven wear and I still wear them in all my sneakers to this day. He also fixed my Halix rigidus (operated on both big toes) and heel spur pain (cortisone injections to eliminate the swelling and prescription orthotics to keep the irritation at bay by eliminating the cause.)

    Can’t resist this notice to you that you used “do to” where you should have used “due to”

    Love ya, kid!
