A new day!

Ever wonder when you might feel like you have it all together?  I have wondered that for perhaps my whole life. Well, ever since that day that I woke up and was less a kid and more a teenager and I realized that the decisions I was making were actually going to start impacting more than just my next few moments. Remember that? When you realized that if you didn’t do this paper AND the next 3, that it would mean you failed that class, and failing could post-pone graduation? Or not getting your permit by THIS date meant that your time to finally drive would be pushed back that much farther?

Well, I still feel like I am barely holding on by the skin of my teeth most days. But I’m starting to wonder if many people feel like me too. Am I the majority, or the minority here?

But, what do you think? Is it possible to wake up one day and finally just be accomplishing more than you are not accomplishing? Is it even feasible that over time one might gradually be closer and closer to meeting their many, many goals in life.

I suppose this is why Bucket Lists were created. So we could have those important things we do not want to die w/o doing laid out there to tick off like a to do list. So, it is a new day. Every day is. I’d like to lay out some of the things I’d LOVE to carry out gradually (’cause we can’t just get crazy here) over the next 6 months before we ring in 2012:

*Paint the main level of our house (has NEVER been painted by us though we celebrate 12 years in this house next month)
*Make working out daily a habit
*Have more lean muscle than I do FAT
*Make writing every week a habit
*Make blessing my house something I do on auto-pilot
*Carve out regular time for my business so it can grow
*Make reading the bible a morning ritual
*Grow and cultivate systems for our personal finances

So there. I don’t think it is too much to ask that I am able to improve upon and create in these areas. And having the above list be a reality in my life would give me such a thrill! I’d like to have the life the above would give. I’d love to sit here in January next year and have to really concentrate to come up with a new list . . . after checking off the above as done (and will keep being done)!

Anyone care to share their list and join me? It is the last half of the latest new year. Has yours gotten stale? Or is it still a new day for you?

My 100 Day Transformation

Day 21

At the first of the year, I set out to make some lasting changes. My plan was to write about the journey from the start, but the first step bumped the journal part of the process down on the priority list. That’s because my first step was to list the things I want to add into my life as good habits, and then put them in order of importance.

Well, now that I’m 21 days in, I’m happy to get a chance to get some things down. I have been focusing on adding positive things and one area is fitness. So I set out to workout more regularly. Since squeezing the workouts in later in the day hadn’t been working since we started back to a school schedule in the fall, I decided it was time to see if I could make morning work outs work for me. Now I’m so excited! I went from years of dreading the idea of ever possibly needing to wake earlier to just to work out to looking forward to my morning workouts! Can you believe that? All theseyears of thinking I would hate it, and within 3 weeks I’m loving it. For the last 3 weeks I have woken up at least 30 minutes earlier 6 out of 7 days a week. And the 3 days off we on purpose so I have those muscle recovery days. I’ve lost 5 lbs in the process – even though I know I’ve gained back muscle.

More soon. Ahhhh, sweet transformation!
