Determine Your Future

What are you thinking right now? 🤔

Good or positive thoughts?💬
I’m going knock off things from my to do list!
I’m going to finish getting the decorations done tonight.
I am brave enough to go after my dreams.
I am going to lose those last 10 lbs.

Bad or negative thoughts? 💬
I never have time to get anything done.
No one ever listens to me.
I never have any self control so why bother trying to lose those last 10 lbs.
My dreams will never come true… they will eventually fade and I’ll just have to get over it.

It’s time to #choosejoy. It’s time to take control of you…your thoughts and your actions. You were fearfully and wonderfully made! It is intended for you to live life abundantly! The choice is yours. Do something! 💪💯😍

Last 90 Days Check In

Last90Days check in!

October 1st, I started the challenge inspired by Rachel Hollis where you intentionally live the last 90 days of the year as intentionally as you would the first 30 days if the new year. Along with a gratitude and dreams journal, we track our 5 to Thrive; 5 daily activities which includes dining more water, moving your body for 30 minutes daily, and giving up one food that does not bless your body.

Richard and I have given up carbs for the 90 days and are following the keto diet. This has been an easy diet to add to our premium nutrition that we get daily from our 3 simple steps. I’m excited to say that in the last 60 days, I’ve lost 24.8 lbs! 💪

While I don’t always complete all 5 items each day, I have been able to stick with my diet every day even through Thanksgiving! One more month of holiday celebrations, and I’m happy to have a strong habit built going into December. 😍

The Stories

My grandmothers were both good storytellers. Whether it was Granny talking about running the telephone switchboard at Tyler Pipe or Mema talking about switching out the computer key cards at IBM, they always captured my attention. I remember one holiday meal, Granny told a story that took up the whole meal, and still finished her meal at the same time we finished….now that’s an art!😉

These stories were captivating. They were full of details and humor. They were full of history.❤

As I get older, I want to have good stories full of passion for helping others, full of love and family memories, and full of living life. Those are the decisions I’m determined to make. 😍

Little Joys

I love finding the little joys in life. This morning, I was able to order my groceries online instead of spending 1.5 hours at the grocery store. When I went back to add items to the order, not once but twice, no one was frustrated with me over my forgetfulness. 🤣🤷‍♀️

Sometimes we have it all together, and other times, we are just trying our hardest to figure it all out, but finding joy in the journey is the key. Oh, and not having to worry about money for groceries, there is joy in that too…❤😍💯

Moving Forward

Do you know when it is time to change? 🤔

For six years I did business process improvement. During this time, I would evaluate a position’s duties and work with the person or department to help make the task more efficient. It was important to work hand in hand with the employee so the changes would be accepted when the time came.

When I sat with someone, I would ask them, What do you do? WHY do you do it that way? I made sure they knew there was no right or wrong answer, that I was just learning the process. However, if they didn’t know WHY they did a certain task process, or if the answer was, That’s the way we’ve always done it, then the process was open for negotiations later. Why negotiations? Because without their buy-in and acceptance of the change, then it would never change. 🤷‍♀️

It’s time to evaluate HOW you are doing things in your daily life. WHY do you do it that way? HOW is it working for you? WHAT could be changed? Can you ACCEPT the Change?💭‼

Change is hard, but Change is good. Personal growth comes from change. Strength and Knowledge grows with change. Freedom and Flexibility can come from change. Don’t be afraid, it’s time to make the change! 💪⏰😍

No Distractions

What is distracting you today from achieving your goals? 🤔

Sometimes, I feel like my biggest distraction is laziness. 🤷‍♀️ But is it really laziness or procrastination due to fear? Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, or just fear of rejection?

Another distraction from me is busy work, that while necessary, it’s not income producing activity. 🙄

Last week I discussed scheduling my priorities. So on my list if daily activities, I must schedule my IPA items first, and then I can do the other stuff last if there is time left. I’m in charge of goals to achieve my dreams, but I must remember to stay focused on my calling! 😍

Schedule your Priorities

It’s Friday!🎉

Let’s look back at our week and everything we got done or hoped to get done. What did you accomplish? Not much? 🤷‍♀️

I can relate! It’s something I’m working hard on improving! I want to be more intentional with my time so that I actually get the things done that are a real priority to me.

I know that I work best with a deadline, but that usually only applies when I’m accountable to someone else. When I have an order to fill or a request for help from church, I have no problem getting these things done on a timely basis. However, if it’s a priority for myself, my personal business, or my home, these things usually get pushed to the side because there is no urgency in completing them…even though its important to me.🤦‍♀️

It’s time to take back my schedule. On Sundays I will create a plan of action for the week. I will put on the calendar all of my family priorities such as games or meetings, and then I will start intentionally adding my personal priorities to the schedule. Let’s see what I can actually accomplish by next week when I evaluate how things went. The list of accomplishment has to be longer than this week was. 🤣

Fight for Happiness

Are you stuck with the feeling that this is just the way life is and nothing will change? 🤔

What if you change? What if you start to fight back? 💪

I used to feel that way. I was a spectator in my own life, watching life happen around me instead of participating. Four years ago, I decided that was enough! I tried something new because I trusted a friend, and I figured what did I have to lose? I fought for my quality of life, I fought for my happiness, and I fought for my family. I now get to participate in life, and I now choose joy for my life. 😍

It’s a joy to help others now. I’m growing and I hope you are too.🤗
