Start with a Plan!

When you’re feeling overwhelmed by the barrage of demands that each day brings, when your goals seem out of reach – heed this good advice: Start with a plan!

Ain’t got a plan?  Create one! Even one as vague as “place the big rocks first and then work around ’em to get the little stuff done.”  You’ve probably heard this little ditty before: Continue reading » Start with a Plan!


Dangerously Close to Hopeless

One should… be able to see things as hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

September has been an overwhelming month.

It seems as if I just can’t take a single step forward.  It’s not that I’m standing still, it’s that even as I try to move forward, progress doesn’t occur.

I’m stuck in quicksand – there’s lots of movement, just not much progress.

Soon, it seems as if there’s no point in even trying anymore.  I feel dangerously Continue reading » Dangerously Close to Hopeless

Practice means to perform over and over again, in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.

— Martha Graham

Why do some of us look at a challenge and declare that we can’t do it while others simply choose to move forward determined to find a way?

Which do you do?

What’s Your Style?

I do both.  I am the person who looks at a challenge and says that I can’t do it.

I am also the person who Continue reading » One Day at a Time

Acceptance of one’s life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustices.

— Paul Tournier

Wikipedia defines a chronic condition as a disease or other human health condition that is persistent or long-lasting in nature.  It can be discouraging and sometimes we can feel that the “condition” controls more of our lives than we do.

For example:  In the spring and the fall, my allergies can be a real challenge.  My head gets stuffed.  I have trouble thinking.  I have trouble sleeping.  Bending over to pick up doggie output can cause me to Continue reading » Chronically Challenged

Morning Glories!

How quickly the wondrous becomes the worry!

Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!

— William Wordsworth

There are moments that smack you in the face with their magnificence and my first glorious glimpse of the bright purple Morning Glories cascading over my neighbor’s stucco-ed wall, well, they WOW’d me!

Each morning as I embarked upon my “hill walk” challenge, I admired the beauties and noted their increasing abundance. And then I missed Continue reading » Morning Glories!
