I am still posting on my Daughter's computer, since I STILL can't access the internet on mine. :-o Hopefully, it will be fixed this week...
I have been sick all weekend, which is a pain (my To Do list grows as I watch, you know how it is!), but there is also a bright side, right?
I was able to catch up on some much-needed rest, and I had a lot of time to reflect.
I have been mulling over some things for a few months now, something that God has been working on my heart about....discipline. If I'm totally honest, I am no different than the people I admire most, except for one thing...
I lack discipline.
So, during my time of reflection this weekend, I have decided to begin something called Motivate Me Mondays. I am going to set goals for myself every Monday--list things that will help me accomplish my life goals (which I am currently working on writing up. They will be posted when I finish them!).
And I want YOU to help me to stick to my list!!
I also would love it if you would join in! I added a button on my sidebar for you to grab, if you're interested. (Hopefully I can figure out Mr. Linky by next Monday, lol!) Maybe you're like me; maybe you need to set goals and be accountable to someone in order to reach your goals.
I want my life to make a difference. I want the lives of my children to make a difference.
No more excuses!!
So here's my list for this week (I've listed one goal under each of the headings for my life goals):
God: This week I will have prayer and quiet time every day. Did that!
Husband: I will keep the house neat, and I will put notes in his lunch three days this week.
Kept house neat. Put notes in only once. :-(
Children: I will spend time reading to them on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. I will sew Emilie's bags by Friday.We crafted while listening to books on tape, and I sewed Em's bag!
Home: I will get rid of one thing every day this week.
Didn't. Will work on that this week.
Church: I will make 10 Deacon Care group cards by Sunday.
Made 10 cards!
Extended Family/Friends: I will make and send the Birthday cards for birthdays this month. I will make a sample of the wedding invitations for B. Made and sent the birthday cards I needed to for this week. Couldn't make an invitation sample, since B still has my example.
School: I will keep up with my grading every day. I will add one fun activity to our schedule.
Did every day except one. We added planning our Japan week (I'll post more on that this coming week!)
Self: I will exercise at least three times this week. (that was a tough one to write down!!)
I was sick all week, so I only exercised once.
There you have it!
What are your goals for this week? How about for your life?
