"Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer."

Denis Waitley


I like this one for SP too. That's what we do - MOVE forward towards our goals & sweet success!! We KNOW what we did wrong and how we messed up in the past - now we look forward, closing the door on all of that and keep ourselves sharply focused on the task at hand and what our next move will be. Forward all the way, never looking back.


What a day!!!!!! Whew.....I was really glad when the 'work' part of it was over. The mandatory driver's safety meeting that was supposed to last for 1 hr. 15 min. lasted for THREE hours 15 min.!!!!!!! It ate up my entire morning. Never got any breakfast and kind of threw the schedule off all day long. Do NOT like skipping breakfast and not getting my oatmeal!! They didn't stick to the agenda for the meeting, didn't cover things that were on the list, like the safety video & subsequent test. It turned into a gigantic gripe session with a bunch of unhappy campers. I'm just glad it's OVER. They had some kind of fatty 'breakfast' thing there, that everyone ate. They wanted me to eat it - I told them 'no thank you'. I'd rather be hungry. After that was over, the rest of the day was good!!!

The Syrian war drums aren't beating as loudly today. For that I'm very thankful. Praying for peace and not war.

Mileage: 9.23 miles
ST: core; upper body

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope your Friday was fantastic! emoticon

    Just get to the point and skip all the garbage. I hate meetings that go on forever with nothing accomplished. You covered plenty of miles and I hope you slept well. HUGS!

    I'm working on that attitude. I give in to emotional eating too often.

    Sorry to hear about your seemingly unproductive meeting. However, I like your attitude regarding the fatty breakfast item... "I'd rather go hungry". I get it. Good for you!

Enjoy your weekend!
