Spending some time today thinking about my dreams. Then I was thinking about my "to do" list. My goals and what I do daily. I am moving towards my goals. Some have been harder than others to implement. But, there is no problem starting now or restarting later if it somehow does not go as smoothly as I had hoped. My goal is to live this year in a way that I will be glad of my accomplishments when it is done.
After I finished all this thinking I was struck by the idea of taking time each day to contemplate my goals. I have been doing that. Take time to include them in my prayers. Sometimes asking for help, other times for guidance.
Then I need to think of this years journey as taking care of myself as well as others. Not deprivation. If I know that cleaning the kitchen will help me stay on track the next day then that is a good thing and self care. I know that eating the candy or whatever will not be self care. When I feel like I want it I need to find other means that will help me feel cared for.
