Tuesday, November 04, 2008      4 comments

It's Talking Tuesday and I missed blogging on Motivation Monday, so I'll catch up. Motivation Monday was fabulous. I had more fun with Wanda's ATTITUDE piece that she shared. It got me giggling and I e-mailed it to my family and shared ... Read more

I saw a sticker of Yoda with this saying on the back of a car window at the Supermarket. It spoke to me. (ahh, wisdom in the grocery store parking lot.) And as I was poking around my own page for the "fresh start" to a new month. I revisited ... Read more
Time for some November goals.

Way to be on top of it Nancy! (I usually think about setting November goals in November, but I'm a day early and I must celebrate the improvement! Woo Hoo!) I am choosing only one goal this month. Become more physically active. E... Read more

Birthday Hangover?
Tuesday, October 28, 2008      7 comments

I believe I am experiencing a slight emotional hangover from my birthday. It feels almost the same as a hangover from too much booze. Not the healthy, best place to be. So I spent the better part of yesterday working on shaking that negativit... Read more
Last Fabulous Friday of my year!
Friday, October 24, 2008      7 comments

I was just going to write Fabulous Friday, but I thought I'd punch up the drama just a bit. For Fabulous Fun Friday. I turn 54 on Sunday. That, in itself, is amazing to me. Emotionally, I believe I have the maturity that I possessed at age 1... Read more
Thoughtful Thursday

Yesterday we had a writing assignment that asked us to choose an animal that was representative of us. I thought about it all day long. There is a mockingbird outside my kitchen window who can't seem to figure out who he/she is. What a twit... Read more

I need to write down my positives for Tuesday, before I begin my Wednesday. Yesterday was a hard day for me. On those days it is even more important to focus in on the positives. I sat at my desk and spent some time working on my goals an... Read more
Motivation Monday comes around again!
Monday, October 20, 2008      6 comments

I have not been motivated to overcome the obstacles of writing over the past 3 days. It has been a valuable lesson for me. The harsh negative critic has tried to "bully" me into writing to no avail. There is a part of me that says "if you don... Read more
Self control . . .
Thursday, October 16, 2008      8 comments

I cleaned off my desk and unearthed some quotes that I have been "collecting". This quote was on the wall of the Math teacher's room last fall. I swear I've cleaned my desk off in between that time and today. . . I think. . . Anyway. . . in ... Read more

Living Pretty
Monday, October 13, 2008      5 comments

I have lots of more "pretty' to make but, I have been feeling well fed and positive and some of that is due to taking the time to enjoy my food. Since I have come back to Sparking, I am trying very hard to change my mindset. Small, lasting... Read more

a fabulous friday
Friday, October 10, 2008      6 comments

It was a lovely day. I made some excellent choices. I took my nephew out and about for a little tour. It has been hard for him because his cousin is in school and quite busy. So, I showed him "downtown" and we checked out a Texas antique s... Read more
