Hi there, Journal & Friends,
Today is a different kind of Toon Tuesday.
Her comment made me stop and really LOOK at it again. I read each of my key words, ones that I had personally chosen for 2010:
- Attitude of Gratitude
- Dare Greatly
- Love Relationship with God
- Good Choices
- Progress Not Perfection
And last but not least...
I really feel good about my progress on most of those words... except Consistency.
I have been consistently INconsistent in too many areas!
I've written about consistency so much, it's embarrassing. I've read on it, thought on it, meditated on it, and tried to improve on it.
Here is one post on Day 304 I found, looking for answers.
And here, way back on Day 88, I felt that my price to pay for success at this was Consistency.
And from Day 281 comes the bottomline message: Do it anyway, whether I feel like it or not. Because Consistency is more important than perfection.
Yet I still have areas that are glaringly INconsistent! What's up with that?!
And as I have been doing those Peeks at the Past at the end of my posts now, it's been VERY helpful in showing me that the current areas that I struggle with now, are the SAME ones from a year ago!
I am still struggling to get consistent with my sleep, my exercise, my time management.
I've been mulling over what my new theme will be for 2011....maybe it should be just one word: Consistency
Not sure yet. But it sure couldn't hurt!
If you are interested in making your own Theme for 2011 and not sure where to start, last year I posted some ideas for getting started, HERE. You can take the general idea, and use your own shapes. I'm thinking that my next one might be a circle shape... maybe.
It really IS a therapuetic thing to do. Just to come up with words significant to YOU, takes tuning in to your own heart's desires, and is a very revealing exercise!
For me, I like to take my time and play with it and ENJOY it, and not be rushing at the last minute. That's why I'm starting now, before the busyness of the holidays. We typically get busy and do for everybody else... yet it is important to put effort and focus on this journey for ourself.
It won't "just happen"... we must MAKE it happen!
From Dr Phil's book: "It is you who must create the life you want. And the choice is yours to make."
My verse for today: "How priceless is your unfailing love!"
My quote for today: "If there's one thing that all people who successfully get lean and stay lean have in common, it's consistency. Without it, you never get any momentum going. It's like taking two steps forward, only to take three steps back." --Tom Venuto
Enjoy the Journey,
