Aaah, patience has never been a strong characteristic of mine. But it looks like I am in for a long lesson of it. God has a sense of humor or a special way of taking something that you need to learn, and putting it right smack in your face. Tip of the day, take a deep breath and let it be.
Day 13 of blogging. My focus today is organization and schedules for the upcoming fall. It is something that I like to do but it is always a challenge to stick with. But with home schooling, it will force me to stick with one. Part of the organizing is accepting the fact that I have too much stuff. Every room feels cluttered even though I know it is not nearly as bad as most people since we just moved and got rid of tons of “stuff. Tip of the day, take each room in the house one by one to clear out, organize and the hardest part.. keep it that way once it is done. Don’t get distracted. One room or project at a time is all I can expect from myself.
12th day of blogging. It is like a form of therapy. I find it hard to have a topic each day but my personal goal was to write something each day for one full year, hence the name of the blog. I love writing in a journal. Have kept one my whole adult life but this is different. I need more relaxing things in my life. Tend to be an uptight person. Tip of the day, find relaxing moments each day. Writing is like therapy. Maybe yoga could be also.
Yesterday I spent hours working on home school research. So I am combining yesterday and today. This is going to be such a huge change for me. I am really unsure and anxious over it.The only thing I know I can rely on is my faith. Tip of the day is to rely on my faith when I am weighed down with concerns and know that I am not doing this alone.
Today I am cleaning out closets and while going thru my sweaters, I thought of a new purpose for old,worn out ones. Boot socks!!I cut off the long sleeves and will hem a little of the frayed side. They will look so cute this winter. I can flip them over the top of the boot and could sew cute buttons on.Tip of the day, try to re-purpose items. It is easier than I thought.
8th day of trying this out..So I am a week into it and have started thinking about a purpose to it. My ideas are recipes, fitness goals, new places and activities in Montana and of course the biggest change in this upcoming year, home schooling. Tip of the day, don’t worry about always knowing the purpose of something but it will be shown to you in due time.
After spending time today with other children, I see the value of education. And when there is a lack of parents involvement, the child suffers.To give your children your time and a good foundation, you are setting them up for success. Tip of the day, a good education is priceless and a lack of one is costly.
Today is my 6th day of blogging. Today’s topic is friendships. Starting new friendships because I am still new to the area and cherishing ones I have had for many years. A friend you have had for many years is so comforting and it makes you thankful. Starting new friendships is fun and exciting. Tip for today, give it all you can and put yourself out there. Take a risk and it may turn out to be the best thing you did.
Day 5 of blogging.. Tip of the day, don’t feel obligated or bad for doing what makes you happy. You can not or should not waste your time on others. Enjoy your day and seize the moment.
Day 4 of blogging and it is becoming a part if my daily routine. I like it. Today I relaxed and read a lot. It was book club night. I love to read but do not always have the time. But when I do, I love it. Tip of the day, never stop reading and the love of reading. Encourage others to love it too.
