Goal Of the Week Feeding My Mind and My Soul- Day 7

Friday, May 27, 2011

Feeding my mind and my soul for this week focus was great!!!

I am experiencing the benefit of applying myself to working on what is upstairs (if you know what I mean).

The results are emoticon I now have a loving conscience and I remember to be my own best friend.

I am approaching exercise with love, patience and commitment. This is new for me. I am maturing.

I can come back to this focus on mind and soul whenever I feel my cup is 1/2 full. Fill it up again and keep stepping in life's path.

Goal Of the Week Feeding My Mind and My Soul- Day 6

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Exercise, this worries me. I feel I never am doing enough. The small goals are not enough. This is where I practice what I preach. How do I be my best friend?

I do not allow these thoughts to settle in my mind. I read, I have lots and lots of books that explain the benefit of exercise and how even a walk can help. If I do not want to take out a book.

I have The Spark and the website and MY emoticons. I guess you can see what my next week goal is.

Yes, exercise, exercise, exercise. I would like to earn more fitness point. emoticon

    I like the carrot of earning the points. I honestly have not been to the gym in two days. SO, you have inspired me. Not only am I going to the gym after work, I am walking there.

    I love how you are setting a specific goal for each week. I reminds me of how Ben Franklin purportedly worked on one "virtue" each month of the year, and the FlyLady gals work on one habit per month and one area of the home per week. It's a comfortable way to break things down into manageable pieces and stay focused!

Thank you for your example, and my best to you on the coming week's goal to exercise. Remember, even one or two ten minute periods of exercise each day can do you good!

    Sometimes I feel that worrying about how much exercise I am doing is a good thing. It makes me push myself harder. But, at some point, if we are being completely honest with ourselves and we are giving our all, then we have to accept that we are doing our best and doing all we can do. If we aren't doing all we can do, then yes, we must keep worrying. :) You are doing a fantastic job, Janet.

Goal Of the Week Feeding My Mind and My Soul- Day 4

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I would like to run. Before I can try running, I need to be able to complete four walks, each one 30 minutes nonstop, in a week.

I am hoping that feeding my mind and my soul I will get the courage to start toward my goal. I will think of small steps. I started walking last Sunday for 30 minutes. So I will walk this Sunday for 30 minutes. Maybe my granddaughter will join me again. That way just heavenly(feeding my soul).

My job hires a chaplin to visit every week. It occurred to me when he comes bye He is feeding my soul. I do enjoy talking to him.

This evening I will read. Make a list somethings that I am grateful for.
Listen to some music!!!!
All and all this has been a emoticon day!!!!

Goal Of the Week Feeding My Mind and My Soul- Day 3

Monday, May 23, 2011

I am feeding my soul and my mind. I did not realize how much I take this part of me for granted. Then I ask what went wrong or why I don't seem to care as much anymore. Now I know it is because I have not put positive reading, thoughts and ideas in my minds. When I am feeling down or worried about someone else I remember I only have control of me. I can only change me. I change my view on things. I can change what I say to myself. I can look somewhere else for support My emoticon's I do not have to listen to negative talk. I can be my own best friend. What am I doing to keep me strong. Reading, Sending emails to my job to remind me to feed my soul. I also started a journal to not let pended up feelings simmer inside. And exercise I am working on that. Small goals at a time.

    Such powerful insights. It is a great thing to reflect and rediscover your wonder in the world and put that negative self-talk out of your mind.

I love that you are journaling. One thing I have done (inconsistently, as with everything) is try to blog or journal regularly and try to stay focused on the good and positive things when I do. I don't always "feel" good and positive, but in the end, I don't want to remember the times when I don't (unless, perchance, I have learned something good from the negative experience).

For those less-than-positive times, I scratch my emotional thoughts onto some stray spiral notebook page just to get them out of my head, let that sit for a day or two, then shred, shred, shred!
