As you read in my last post, I started my fiftieth year and a month ahead of the beginning of 2020 with LOTS of BIG COMPLICATED plans! After that post, I became quite intentional about what of those plans worked and what didn't. Some I kept. Some I tweaked. Some I let go. So where … Continue reading My Simplified Plans
It's been more than a month since I sat down to write. I've felt like I have nothing to say and too much to say all at the same time. When I sat down at the beginning of December to write about turning 49 and my fiftieth year, I made so many plans...so many little … Continue reading Simply Adventure!
The end of a decade. The beginning of a new decade. I will celebrate my 49th birthday this month, which means this is my FIFTIETH YEAR! That's overwhelming, underwhelming, exciting, and maybe a bit unnerving all at the same time. I've found myself looking back and looking forward over the last few weeks. When I … Continue reading My Fiftieth Year…coming soon 49 years old!
After basically taking a month off from working toward goals and developing mini-habits, sitting down and deciding on this month's goals was not as easy as I thought it would be. As I thought about the things I want to accomplish this month, it was clear that I needed to revisit some mini-habit work from … Continue reading New Month…Renewed Goals
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. For me, that picture right up there speaks volumes about my October. Have you ever just had a season of blech? It wasn't that October was a bad month...it really wasn't. I just felt kind of in limbo. I set out to simplify my goals and … Continue reading October Reflections and November Plans
One of the things I've been trying to work on the last few weeks is exchanging whispers with my Lord before shouts with the world. Sadly, I'm not doing very well with that. I've allowed the shouts of the world to drown out the whispers I so desperately want to focus on. I've become increasingly … Continue reading Taking a Break
Typically, I'm ready to set and share my monthly goals by the first of the new month. Not this month! I've had to take a few days to really think about and pray about what I need to focus on and work toward. August brought some changes that I didn't expect. Good changes...but still changes. … Continue reading New Month…Renewed Focus
I don't know about you, but my emotions can get the best of me! I often let sadness or anger or even happiness send me to choices that don't really line up with my goals. Or...I wallow in the mud of trials that come my way. There are lots of sayings and writing about sacrificing … Continue reading Short Term Pleasure or Long Term Peace
As I was pondering what mini-habits to work on this month, I sat looking out the window at my desk. Not long ago, I moved the desk from the corner of the room to its current position...directly in front of the window. I wanted to be able to see outside while I studied or wrote. … Continue reading Going Outside…Finding Rest in Creation
For some reason I found it difficult to set goals and mini-habits actions for myself for this month. It would have been easy to just keep the same ones from the last few months. However, I would consider several of them as habits now so keeping them pretty much defeats the purpose of my work … Continue reading August…New Month…New Challenges
