September 2013

Friday, September 27, 2013

At the end of August, I remember thinking that I hoped September would be less boring than August. There's the old saying "Be careful what you wish for". Right now, I would love to have a half a day to be bored.

I started a couple classes. Now I remember what it's like to get back into the habit of homework! I am learning a lot and growing spiritually through these classes. It's a good feeling. My thought process has changed a little; I find myself responding to people in a more positive, spiritual way. I think that's a good thing.

Before, I used to start every morning (or sometimes I'd start at night) by making a list of things I felt I needed to accomplish that day. Then, I would be disappointed and aggravated when I didn't accomplish a lot of my list. I have learned this month to look at it a little differently. I will set a general goal for the day and list 3 things that I want to accomplish. I feel better about what I do each day this way. My attitude is better.

I am more conscious of when my body tells me it's time to call it a day. It's still a work in progress, but I am stopping more when I feel like this. Down time is important to physical and mental health.

October is fast approaching. I will not sit here and say that I wish it will be a certain way. I'll take each day as it comes.

    Yeah, I've wished for some things that didn't turn out quite the way I would have liked.

Hoping you have an excellent October!
