Change of Plans Day

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

I was told yesterday that I didn't have to go into work today. So, I made my long to do list of things I need to do. I just got a phone call from my boss asking me to come in. The best laid plans of mice and men... I will just have to fit my to-do list into my next couple of days somehow.

    I had a similarly topsy-turvy day. But that's how we show how flexible we are, right?

The Best Of Intentions....

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

I had full intention of starting to write in my journal again last night. I used to be in the habit of writing in in almost every day. But, by the time I got home from work, went on my walk, and started looking at my mail and budget, the night got away from me. There sure are a lot of things I feel I need to write about. It always makes me feel a little better or at least lets me sort out my feelings and start making plans for a new and improved me. So, this morning, I penciled in a time when I will sit down and write.

One thing I need to write about is the emergency room episode with my mother. It sure got me thinking of everyone's mortality and what I really want to do with my life while I have age and health to my advantage. Another topic is definitely my financial situation. I can't stay where I am on the money I have coming in. Plans have got to be made and followed up on. So much to think about and so little time! I need to still work on streamlining my life.

    I love journaling but never make time for it. I have definately got to pencil some time in for myself. It is such a great stress reliever.

    I was thinking the same thing, you are always saying you are scheduling - glad to hear you scheduled in journal writing.... I need to do the same...

As for the situation with your mom making you reflect and make decisions in your life, I think we all need a wake-up call.... Like I went in for my bloodwork yesterday and a few minutes ago (~8pm) I got a call from the dr office saying they want to see me tomorrow....some quick!!

A New Week Begins

Monday, July 25, 2011

It's Monday morning - the beginning of a new week. Last week was not a good week for me: too much stress! At this point, I have the determination to make it a great week. I have my days loosely planned out. This is in hopes that I can feel like I accomplish something each day but still have time to relax and reflect. I want to start writing in my journal each day in hopes of sorting out my feelings and keeping my stress levels down. In addition, I hope that by journaling, I can define some new goals and give my life a new purpose and somethings to strive for and look forward to. I want to be able to look back at the month of August and really see some progress in myself: less stress, more confidence, more purpose in my life.

    Wonderful ideas, Patty. Great idea to be able to reflect on what you accomplished for the month, I should so do that!!! I am sure I really accomplish more than I can imagine.

How's your mom doing? Hope she is much improved.
