Hello there Journal,
I wrote out my Plan...now I am DOING my Plan. It is one of those "inch by inch anything is a cinch" plans...meaning it will take quite awhile to see huge changes. Rather, I am doing a little bit each day. But I AM doing it, and it feels good. That good feeling from accomplishing a thing.
But in order to do the Plan, I have to make choices as to how I will spend my time. Time is the coin of our life...and we need to spend it wisely. Once it is gone, it is GONE. Yesterday I was following The Plan (I listed it out here) and that felt good. But it felt BAD to have to tell someone sorry, I can't do that for you today, it will have to wait. Ugh...yet it was necessary. I am relieved they were very gracious about the delay.
I now realize that one thing I want to add to my original plan is...wiggle room. Wiggle room in my schedule for the unexpected, for those things that pop up that are necessary or just plain fun. That can be another Reward to getting caught up.
This is a journey, and we are learning, growing, correcting, changing. That's a good thing. :-)
From Dr Phil's book: "You and only you choose how you feel."
My verse for today: "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you."

Enjoy the Journey,
