Been feeling a little down as I haven't been meeting a challenge that I started for a Spark Team that I became a leader to. I'm one of those people that is hardest on myself. (I'm trying to change this)
Honest with ya its been a rough week or so:
~Counselor questioning my priorities
~Questioning whether or not to stay on a committee
~Whopper of a migraine
~Head cold on the start of my grad summer classes
~Not getting my textbook and doing the reading before the class started
~Paying an outrageous fee for only two textbooks ($256.00). Undergrad wasn't even this expensive!
~Not finishing up the work for my last Bachelor's class
~Paperwork for a couple things that just haven't been done yet
~Getting my grad application done and mailed in along with the transcript requests to various previous colleges.
~Maybe a couple more I've forgotten to mention.
Well anyways.. life goes on and today after several days on not really being on Sparks except to log in, I decided to read a couple Blogs to see how others are doing. (That is the BEST distraction when life or things get one down.. *winka)
Someone had an interesting blog on breakfast that just gave me that Ahhhhhh momment! When I took that usual commuter routine to Oz never once did it occur to me to stop into my old hangout.. good ol' McDonalds.. for breakfast for my usual quick and easy breakfast. I also realized too for the day never once did I go off track and choose the fast and easy way out.. eating at those fast food places. Instead I laid out the money and stuck to the better menu and treated myself to Ponderosa so I could stay on my new lifestyle change plan. After reading that person's blog, I realized I did it so automatically I didn't even think about it nor be tempted to choose the easy way out. Ahhhhh LIFE is GOOD!!!
As for the list above, I know it will get done and I shouldn't be so hard on myself. I'm trying but change is slow but it IS happening... *smiles
