7/20 - Back Home, Back to the Starting Line

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Travel, heat/humidity, a week of illness and a week of travel coming up. Looking at the possibility of Bill moving to Iowa....for a YEAR.....for a "can't refuse" opportunity. An investment in our retirement.

Feeling distracted, lost my focus, needing structure. I know, I really am the one who can control this, but I allow myself to get sucked into the "drama of the moment." An employee resignation, a budget oops, a lack-luster presentation, underperforming employees (who had been allowed to underperform for 20 years before my arrival.)

Ok. The negative stuff is out. Put away.

The one thing I can control is where I THIS moment. Nobody and nothing is going to insert their drama into the next minute, nor the next, nor the next.

Rather than tackle the list of 50 things that NEED to be done, my list is going to consist of one. Upper body workout and 2 miles followed by floor core work. And what I know to be true, is that a surge of positivity (always the result of a good workout) will ensure that I develop a menu for the coming week, stocking up on healthy groceries, while I tackle laundry.

If that's ALL I accomplish today (and I will), it will be a good day, and kick the work week off on a high note.

Back later with more deep thoughts.... :-)

    You got this! I sometimes struggle with control in those tough moments too.

  Don't worry about the things that you can't change. Focus on what you can change.
