I think it's good for our souls and self-esteem to take time to spend a little time each day asking ourselves some questions... SO every month... I ask myself a few questions and I record them in a journal. Today I will be recording them here for you to read.. maybe you should ask yourself the same questions... and put them in a journal.. they are interesting to read back through.. months and years later.
I am thinking about- How sad it is that my son is sick today, he has worked so hard in school.. from being the last student done on a daily basis to being the first one done, and this month his teachers chose him to be the star student of the month. HE will miss the assembly, the gold star wearing of the pin... and the HOOPLA... sure I can do it here.. but it's not the same as your PEERS seeing your accomplishments and cheering you on.
I am thankful for- As much as being home the last 3 years and only working part-time... I am thankful that we can get by on one income, for now. I want a career.. and this time is helping me get the necessary training I need and make the right choices for my future career.
In my kitchen: The dishwasher is running, the counter has some craft materials...as this has become my spot for working, until I find another good spot to work. My fridge is filled with vegetables and fruit for Sunday's detox. I feel ready, although, I am so worried... Have not gone 7 days with out honey in my tea, and oil on my salad.... The detox is doctor recommended and the food is regular food.. but you are to stay away from oil,butter, margarine and caffine for 7 days.. you can add a small amount of protein... by the 6th day.
Things I am creating- i am working on Mason jars... with hungry caterpillars inside for Eric Carle baby showers... to sell in my Etsy store.. I am working on Tooth Fairy Tins.... to put the tooth... and "she" puts the money in....no more wasting envelopes... and no more lost silk bags....I also made these for my Etsy store
I look forward to- Next Wednesdays art class... this is what I did in my first class...
My favorite things right now- I am enjoying watching the Youtube cooking videos of my healthy lifestyle coach....creating vegetable dishes and breakfast ideas with no grains, eggs or dairy. I also love watching Sunday night Tv.. Once upon a time.
Around the house-All the Christmas things are put away... I have my snowman collection out now.
Something I want to share- a quote I like-"Many persons have the wrong idea about what constitutes true happiness IT is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."- Helen Keller
Well, I am off to work-out and take a before shot.. pic of me.... so in 4 weeks... I can take another pic.. and see if I can see a difference in my body.
So if you have a little time.. jot a few answers to these question down in a spot you can find and read again in 4 months.... or more.
Have a great weekend.
