January 2, 2013 'Tis the Season to Start Anew:
Today was a very productive day getting things sorted for Income Tax time, PFD registration, Renewal of Automobile registration, thank you notes for Christmas presents, cleaning up and putting away Holiday decorations. Whoa! That and the distraction of our heat source going off, not getting a good night sleep and my husband having to go out of town when he just got home last night!! It seems this is the rule rather than the exception to the rule. Whenever a new habit is being birthed, old habits just don't want to die to make room for the new healthy ones. What do I do??? Well, first of all this has happened too many times for me not to recognize a pattern forming here. Part of change is to resist the temptation to bellyache about the distractions that seem to be sent to impede progress. It is just part of the change process. Today's victory was I dressed warmer, lite the fireplace, called the plummer, crawled back into bed and took a 2 hour nap. When I awoke I was rested, warmer and able to accomplish all the things on my TO DO List. I don't know what tomorrow will bring but TODAY I consider a good day and for that I give God the Glory.
