Day 21: Being Successful
Saturday, October 06, 2012
"See your success, feel your success, and make the commitment to build on it right now. You are successful, and this is the moment to live and enrich your success." ~www.greatday.com
No, I'm not always successful, but right now I'm feeling successful. Key word there is feeling. But how do you measure feelings? I've yet to come across a scale that does that But this is what is happening. I feel like my clothes fit better, I'm meeting my goals I've set for myself which makes me feel proud, I've deleted some bad habits that makes me feel relieved. I've started some new habits that makes me feel excited. So I'm gonna do what the quote above says and relish in the moment and "feel my success". I'm not giving myself a reward or a "deserving" treat, I'm just going to recognize and feel good about the changes I've made and keep moving forward toward more success.
Funfilled day planned, good that I'm up early to get some projects/chores out of the way before the fun begins! DH and I got a good 5 mile walk in last night, the sunset was gorgeous, he wants to go on another one this weekend so we'll have to figure a good time to squeeze it in. I found a cool iphone grocery shopping app that I'm going to give a try next trip to the store. It gives you a running total of your purchases and stores the info. I'm hoping that will help me stick closer to budget or at least help me be more aware of prices. The envelope system app I've been using has been working really well too,especially with the kids, when the envelope is empty... that's it. No more asking "can I buy another lunch at school ?" They have their allotment for the week and they have to figure out how to make it work. That's been a huge stressor lifted out of our mornings.
I'm still keeping things real and getting things done. I'm not getting it ALL done but that's what keeping it real means to me. Being real with where I'm at and getting things done that work in my reality. That feels good to say! Oh brother, now I've got that old song "Feelings" in my head...whoa, whoa whoa feeeeeelings !
Definitely time to stop typing now! Have a great day!!
