Domino Effect

Saturday, August 31, 2013

It seems that there is something to the Domino Effect - when one thing goes wrong, something usually goes wrong after that. I don't really want to admit it, but I sure feel like this is what happened the last couple of days. I usually can roll with the flow. But, for whatever reason, I let things get the best of me. And, today I am paying the price. I've had a stress headache all day. A whole bottle of aspirins will not get rid of it. It's time to get a damp washrag out, lay down on the couch, and put it on my forehead. It's an old wives' tale that my mom told me about. For some reason, it works for me.

So, I will unwind tonight and get a good night's sleep. I will start September with a renewed spirit. I will remember the following:

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.

Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.

    The wash cloth on the head is magic! A cold shower or a cold cloth does more to ease my headaches than pills do!

    Those are wonderful motivational thoughts. Things I should think about!

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

    Wow, you really hit the nail on the head this time!!! I need to follow those exact goals too. I may be going up to Halifax to see my sis, btw. Her friend from down here is going up, so I may tag along. Sept. 6-10, wanna go?

    Here's to September success!

    Part of the reason why my goals in August didn't work was because I tied a lot of them to another person's support and, believe it or not, THEIR progress! Well, it didn't work out. So, in September, they will be based on my needs and progress. emoticon Good luck with your goals. Chelsea
