Hi Journal & Friends,
Last night was tough... today is mo' bettah!
Had a case of the Poor Me's... over it now. Pity parties may feel good in the moment, but only strengthen the negatives, and don't get me anywhere. I detest them! So, done with that noise! I might talk about it later, might not. Shrug.
Today... I choose to look forward.
Today is going to be my first
Short & Sweet Saturday!
After I read a post written by Dayne at Coach Your Mind, I've been asking myself three questions most mornings:
1. How can I grow?
2. How can I give?
3. What can I celebrate?
Today, I grow by making time to ask--and answer--some hard questions of myself, having to do with time priorities (I'll talk about that later).
Today, I will give verbal appreciation to someone I care about (yes, Jim).
Today, I celebrate the feeling of anticipation and excitement that comes from taking actions that cause fear to evaporate (I'll talk about that later, too).
If you have time, I highly recommend Dayne's post on this topic (HERE).
From Dr Phil's book: "You talk to yourself more than everybody else in your life combined."
My verse for today: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged."
My quote for today: "We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out." --Ray Bradbury
Enjoy the Journey,
