I have a small pocket-card, developed by GiveMore, that I am making a conscious decision to read at least once a day. The idea I am going to develop into a habit is: Pause before you begin. Clip a complaint as you feel it coming. Put a smile or thoughtful statement in its path. Blame no one. Blame nothing. Can you imagine if everyone made a concious decision to do this?
The other day I got my hair wrapped around a brush so badly I thought I might have to cut it out. Then, all of a sudden the brush slid loose. If I hadn’t practiced a bit of patience and perseverance… In other words, when having a moment of frustration or panic – take a deep breath before reacting.
I asked myself the other day if it was too early (before 5:00) to have a glass of wine. I decided to make a cup of coffee in my Keurig. It was a good choice. I got a lot done.
Jigsaw puzzles relax me. Putting organization into chaos? I am working on my second one this month. I slip into the little world coming together on the table. My current puzzle is a picture of a Mom & Pop veggie farm/orchard. Love it!!
Had another dream about running out of time to Christmas shop. It is January for crying out loud. Give me a break!
Had another dream about moving. In this dream, at least, the house I was moving into wasn’t already jam packed with the previous owners’ stuff…but the house was dirty. Very. Why do I keep having dreams about moving into houses??
It thundered in winter. That’s supposed to mean snow in 7 days. We’ll see what happens…
