Today's SP reflection -Valuing time before it is too late

Friday, January 06, 2012

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness...never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

- Lord Chesterfield

Valuing time before it is too late

Often our days are busied with worry, stress, complaining, work, and a general wasting of time. Once we finally realize the value of our time, often for many of us it is too late. While your life might seem like a long time in the midst of it, truly it is a blink of an eye. Today, make more time to be present in your life. Even small moments--enjoying a cup of tea, calling a friend, reading a favorite book--should be enjoyed. Restructure your day so that you can get all of your work done, but allow for extra time to be spent on personal matters. Stop procrastinating!
Set up a playdate for my son & I w/a friend from his preschool for next Wed. looking forward to getting to know them a little better.

If the world seems cold to you, kindle fire to warm it.

- Lucy Larcom, hymnist

Lighting fires in the cold

It is very easy to complain about the state of the world and point fingers, especially when you're having a bad day. What is not so easy--and yet desperately needed at times--is for people to step up and make a difference. Don't be intimidated by others, wallow in your own negative feelings, or sit back and assume someone will do it when you are capable yourself! Relating to others around you isn't always easy, but lending a helping hand, extending a hand in friendship, or expressing a word of encouragement can make a big difference to someone. The fate of many has been changed by the actions of just one person who has grown tired of "how it's always been done" and instead turns and does something more positive. The world does not demand of you to give your entire life, but we can all be instruments of positive change. What can you do to make this world better?

Today healthy reflection I'm wondering what I can do to be more positive & to step up. Was really annoyed the other day when my prescription wasn't avail. called the Dr. a couple days ago & haven't heard back. Wonder if it's b/c I need to go get my blood tested. Guess I need to make a couple more calls.
Dishwasher repairman is coming today, funny thing was I don't remember calling him. Our dishwasher had stopped working last year & was fixed by dh by cleaning out the screen a couple times, which I find strange since this is a pretty new machine.
Trying to find time & motivation to workout, get organized & spend quality time w/my family.
Sorry for the long blog, throat hurts from coughing the past couple days. How is your day going?

Could not sleep so I am on the treadmill after watching super 8. Wonder if I can get a half hour in before the kids come down to get me. Only 7 more minutes to go. Need to call the dr and get my prescription for my hypothyroidism. Wonder if I need to get bloodwork done before they give me another prescription? Girls go back to school today so I need to pack their lunches and get their bags ready after breakfast. Hope you have a great day!

Awesome sleepover for my daughter last night, what a great group of girls! After going down to the lake with my son who rode his big wheel down there with me, we enjoyed writing with chalk in the driveway before bringing my middle child to her dance class.
