Just another installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head and today there are a lot of them…
I make so many plans/set goals and then go completely off track at the first hiccup in the process. Then I can’t seem to roll with the flow/pick myself up and adjust to the changed circumstances. I need to get better at working my plan instead of reacting to what other people want/need/ask me to do.
For example, last week I decided to make a strong push to finish out the year and get some of my earlier goals met. But here I am – no further along than I was. I’ve struggled to get back to a schedule that would balance activities that help me complete my goals with activities that refresh and renew my spirit. Instead I’m still flitting from activity to activity, looking busy but accomplishing nothing. It is truly disappointing.
I’m also struggling with feelings of frustration and discouragement as I watch my children struggle and make choices that are different than my hopes for them. I’m trying to remember that I have done my best to instill good values but ultimately their choices are under their control not mine. A tough lesson to learn.
Autumn has arrived and I need to get moving in the garden – there are so many things I’d like to get done. I know I need to pick and choose because they can’t all get done but it is so hard to decide.
I am enjoying the sight of the stained glass panels that were finally installed. I’ve been waiting on these for almost 13 years so it is a real pleasure to finally have them.
Getting ready to start enjoying the 31 Days writings that so many bloggers will be doing this month. There are always so many great topics to explore – have to be careful not to get sucked in and spend all day reading!
I’m off to get some work done – I hope to be back again soon. Thanks for reading
