Remember that old TV show called "My Three Sons?" Simpler times and a peek into the life that some of the early TV writers must have thought we would all seek to achieve. Actually, that has nothing to do with what I'm going to blog about, but my three ps made me think about the three sons! I have a wandering mind this morning.
Here are the three words beginning with the letter P that I focused on this morning during my walk.
Plan ahead: If I don't plan, I always fail. If I do plan, sometimes I change those plans, but at least I've given it some thought. Planned my meals for the week, planned my exercise (groan), plan for staying out of the pits (oh my...another p)...it all adds up to a better day for me.
Persistence: I've seen this word a lot lately, and it is critical for me and I suspect for lots of other people. So, I will work on my persistence...again and again and again!!!
Patience: For some reason I seem to think that if I don't get immediate results or outcome of all my efforts, it isn't worth trying again today. How stupid is that!! I guess we never really outgrow that childish "I want it now" behavior. Another long range goal is to work on my patience!!
What are your "p" words, if any? I think there could be tons of them, but when walking I find that I can't focus on more than about 3 at a time. Some new ones to think about would be fun, though. Have a great day, friends, and be sure to think of me when you think of a 'p' word that motivates you!!
PS: Would one of you grammar/punctuation experts tell me how to write "Ps" correctly? Writing P's is NOT correct because it isn't a possessive, and Ps, while plural, looks weird. Another thing to Ponder!!!
