Hello there Journal & Friends,
Yesterday I tried to do some quiet, contemplative thinking. Uh huh.
I ended up crying. Huh?? What's this all about?? I answered myself before I had time to "logic" it out: I don't like my life.
Boy, talk about a pity party. I realized it was not ALL of my life I didn't like... but those parts that were still out of balance... still needing work. I feel embarrassed and frustrated that I am STILL working on the same ol' problems, mostly tied up with Time Management. Sigh.
I decided to just take a break and do something fun. Yeah, I escaped. I watched a movie I had heard a teensy about: Julie & Julia.
I LOVED IT! I didn't know it started as a gal and her blog. How fun! She followed her passion for cooking, and it took her on an extraordinary adventure!
I was so enthralled... I watched... I howled with laughter at her first lobster-murdering experience... I was intrigued at the life of Julia Childs, and fell in love with her exhuberance for life. What a fun movie!
It recharged me, and filled me with a sense of adventure... wondering what my own future might hold if... if I keep going, and don't lose my enthusiasm.
Sometimes my batteries seem to wear down... lose their charge.
Yesterday gave my batteries a fresh charge. I really needed it... I've been having a real tough week.
As for my update for The Just 1 Thing Challenge...
Basically, the whole week was a bust. I didn't meet my goals all week. I'm just not going to dwell on it... I need to move on. I know I messed up with sleep, which had a domino effect on everything else.
It's a fresh week, and I need to re-focus and continue on.
Onward and downward, as Deb says!
Today's Peek at the Past (Ha ha ha... it was "A Day of Rest". How fitting.)
From Day 21, August 30, 2009:
For now, I am planning not to write much on Sunday.
From Dr Phil's book: "Stay real and stay flexible."
My verse for today: "I will be glad and rejoice in your love."
My quote for today: "Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus." --Alexander Graham Bell
Enjoy the Journey,
