I Want a Re-do!

Monday, February 03, 2014

I had high hopes for starting the year out with new goals - new things to do and strive for. January got off to a rocky start - beginning the year sick is not fun. My health has been up and down all month. So...I shot for February to set goals - to start anew. Nope - not happening. I have a cold now. I spent Saturday on the couch with a really stiff and hurting neck and back. Sunday, I made it to church. On the way home, I hit a HUGE pothole, compliments of the lovely Michigan weather. The front, right tire blew, the rim bent and half of the hubcap is long gone. This morning was spent at the tire store and I left $370.90 poorer. I have to go to another place in the morning to have a stud replaced. There's no telling how long I will sit there.

It's easy to say that I would like a re-do. The way my luck is running, something different would happen. I realize that attitude makes a difference. So...this means that I need to set myself down and set some goals, adjust my attitude and see how good I can make the rest of the month. And March through December will be better!

    The beginning of your year sounds like my whole year last year. I love what you said at the end of your blog.

    2014 is starting out a challenge for you!!! emoticon

    Great job in keeping your eyes forward, toward the positive changes that you'd like to make in yourself! Sometimes things aren't perfect, but as long as we make the best decision in the moment that we can then we're doing the best we can do. emoticon emoticon

    The good news everyday is a new day so any time we find ourselves off track all we have to do is set the plan for moving back in the direction we should be going. I am sure you will do well now that you are regrouping and ready to move forward.

    I understand. My life has been tough too, full of challenges, obstacles, and unfortunate circumstances. There are many times when I wish I could "press a rewind button."

    Just start from where you are now. Use what you have and focus on the future.

    Good days are waiting for you!
