It seems that in all areas of my life that I have been working on, the key is to be aware and make each decision consciously - staying aware of where money is being spent, staying aware of what needs to be done in my home environment and being aware of what I am putting in my mouth. Planning ahead makes that much more easily attained - having a budget, having daily routines and having menus. I guess there is a part of me that resists that kind of structure but I am finding that the structure actually allows more freedom -"freedom within the framework" as a friend was trying to explain to me (not sure which book she was reading at the time). It seems that the more I put this kind of structure into my life, the more success and less stress I have. Hmmm.... I will continue to work on that and post any more related light bulb moments.
