Reflectings


Monday, August 26, 2013

I've been wanting to weed out, organize and clean well the condo. I've been wanting to get more of a schedule to my day - like the one I had a couple summers ago. I've been wanting to be more social, do more different and interesting things. I've made some progress, but not as much as I wanted. I've come to the conclusion that although I was interested in doing these things, I have not been totally committed to doing them. I woke up today and said to myself that today is the day I am going to commit to doing this. I will post my daily progress. I want to look back at the end of September and think to myself that I have accomplished things.

    Do you use Flylady Patty? I love her ideas and especially the timer. You really can do anything for 15 minutes, and it makes cleaning and decluttering so incredibly easy and quick
Well. Maybe not Planking. I am just going to try a plank now and I'm pretty sure I won't be able to do that for 15 minutes. Maybe 15 seconds?

    That seems to be the key for me. There is a difference between wanting and doing. Stealing from NIKI "Just do it!" is the mentality I have to get. Just do it and guess what it gets easier. Have a great day!

    Way to go, Pattty.

Today, Buddy and I did our 4 lap walk, but today I stopped and talked to another man for close to 1/2 hr. He told me about the Senior's and Pensioner's Club... $25 yr. dues and they play cards and darts and have dances... don't know what else. But, anyway, he told me I had to be on pension to go there, I think he was telling me I "wasn't old enough!!"" I assured him I was.

Then, I walked some more and 2 ladies were walking, and making a big fuss about Buddy, so I asked if we could join them. I got their names and told them I had only moved here a few months ago and was interested in what people do around here. They didn't have too many ideas, but guess this is what being sociable is about, and today I did it...

Are you working at all now? These ladies told me about the local call centre and I said I'd heard bad things and they knew people who've been there since it opened and loved it, and suggested I try it myself and make my own conclusion. But one of them also said, well, if you don't NEED to work, DON'T. I told her until the winter oil bills come, I don't know if I NEED to yet or not..

Anyway, each day is another chance to find what makes us happy isn't it?

    I do the same thing, especially in the morning. Then, as the day goes on, the plans fly out the window. emoticon I have committed to finishing unpacking from my move and I am getting really close! I am very excited about that. FINALLY! (I moved in April). emoticon Good luck today with your plans. emoticon emoticon
Love, Chelsea emoticon

    I love this! Not completely sure why, but I absolutely do! It's so easy to make goals about weight loss, or school, etc...things that have concrete "boundaries." But I love the idea of making goals about something more abstract and figuring out how to achieve them.

Have a great week and keep working towards those goals!
