Cloudy with a chance of meatballs?

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

It really is a beautiful, crisp, clear day. Wouldn't it be wonderful if our thoughts and actions were as clear? lol My thoughts lately are cloudy at best, so I've decided to take action.. How? Good question!

In a word, clutter! My brain, finances, house, family and goals! So, what do you do about clutter? Get rid of it! lol Now of course I can't get rid of my brain, family or finances but I can organize them right? (Notice I didn't say house..) That I can fix or get rid of? Unfortunately, I'd have to take all my clutter with me, so I suppose I'd better deal with that as well.. *sigh*

So much to do so little time.. have you ever heard anyone say "So little to do, so much time???" What exactly are we racing against? Ourselves? YES! We are our own worst enemy! Then we can't succeed with our own goals and give up.. well gee that hurt! Big ole Meatball!

I've decided to become my own best friend, instead of picking and choosing what I abhor about myself, to choose and nurture what I can fix. With the exception of aging, I can fix everything! Right??? Alright so maybe not everything, genes do play a rather large part, I'm not suddenly going to have blond hair and blue eyes.. oh yeah, lol I suppose we can change that now too! (See my point?) No, I'm not going blond, or getting contacts just yet, but finding 30 minutes a day to workout and drinking more water than coffee? Just may be a start!

Finding time to laugh, tease and well? Just play, can boost our energy and frame of mind. So, my addiction to 80's music will motivate me to help battle my house, logging in first thing every morning to Sparks will help my battle my body, finally taking that course will help focus my brain and finances, and last but certainly not least is family. Well, that's where the laughs and love comes in.. setting up those moments to enjoy one another, Wii fit is perfect for my family and accomplishes most of those goals. (Ever see a grown man hula hoop??) *giggles*

So, hopefully soon my brain will be as clear and crisp as the beautiful day outside..

    Welcome back to Spark, Patty!!! I've missed you!!!

Great blog. Well, there certainly is a lot of stuff that we need to get done in life. It can clutter us up. But we do have to make time for the important things. Just make sure you leave plenty of time in the Spring for gardening!! It's GREAT exercise!! :-)
