Hello Journal & Friends,
Things I have discovered this week:
I miss my quiet time of contemplation, of reflection.
I have a hard time getting in touch with my truest feelings when I am short of time.
I really enjoy my solitude, during which I can look inward and get honest with myself without repeated interruptions.
I like routine and order, and not getting behind due to overcommitments.
I am totally not ready to skip calorie counting, like I did a couple of days earlier this week. It is a great tool for me, to keep me accountable and aware. I'll probably do it all the way to goal, or at least a LOT closer.
This has been a "learning week" for me. Even though it's been hard--and today and tomorrow is the Yard Sale, therefore the HARDEST two days--it's almost over.
I'll be getting back to my routines come Monday... back to being organized... yay!
I don't LIKE this feeling of helter skelter... of frantically trying to keep up. I miss reading all my favorite blogs. I am thankful that soon it will be peaceful around here.
All in all, I learned more about myself this week. My strengths... my weaknesses. And I learned that I want, I need order and routine, which in turn frees me to have time to do those creative things.
I'm excited to be getting rid of all the stuff...and I'm hoping that the decluttering will be one more step in the right direction.
Change. I've also discovered that change is not so bad after all. :-)
From Dr Phil's book: "The past is over. The future hasn't happened yet. The only time is now."
My verse for today: "Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle."
My quote for today: "It's only on the brink that people find the will to change." --from the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still
Enjoy the Journey,
