“Wherever you go,
go with all your heart.”
This quote really made me think. How often do I go somewhere with all my heart? The honest answer is not often. Usually, I go about my day without much thought about where I am going or what I am doing. I certainly don’t put much of my heart into the where’s or what’s of my day.
At best I am being lackadaisical and indifferent to my surroundings. To be honest, by not putting my heart into my days is somewhat arrogant and definitely apathetic. I have never thought of myself in those terms before. Maybe lackadaisical or lazy but not indifferent, arrogant, or apathetic.
To not live with all your heart is really being unthankful for all of life.
I don’t want to be that person!
Obviously, changes must be made in my mindset or heart-set if you will.
I am starting today!
I celebrate another week of life but it has flown by. Seems like Sunday was just a day or two ago. When did time speed up? Does it have something to do with climate change? Surely it has nothing to do with age!
There have been some cooler mornings this week. In the mid-seventies when I get up and in the eighties the rest of the day. There’s been some rain and more to come this weekend which is fine. Usually, this time of year lawns are brown and dry and the leaves on the flowers are beginning to curl but so far all is looking green and lush. That is something to celebrate!
Though the mornings have been pleasant I haven’t gone for a walk. Really need to get back on track and get my steps in. I do celebrate that I am healthy and even if not in great shape I get around just fine and have the energy to do things I want to do. What I don’t want to do is another story. I am happy and celebrate that my time is no longer logged on a time clock!
That’s it for this Friday.
Has anyone heard anything from Lexa? Does she have an email address I can have so I can say hello? If it is okay with her would you send it to my email, please? Or just tell her I am thinking of her. Thanks!
Today I celebrate some small repairs that were done in my apartment by the handyman. He also did some work to prepare for the sheetrock that will be done next week.
I am also celebrating that I have the paint to do the doors and closets. There are four closets and eleven doors. I will be celebrating big time when I get this done! I may be awhile before the celebration because I am doing the painting. I don’t especially like painting so I have to give myself a pep talk to get started. Some days it works some days not.
I am also happy that I found the size air vent I need for the furnace closet door. I found it online now just have to order it.
The kitchen is still not done but I am hopeful that I will be celebrating its completion in the near future. This project has not gone as smoothly as hoped but I waited for twenty-one years to do this so a few more weeks is okay…sorta.
Have you ever noticed how sometimes the most irritating and aggravating things can end up being good things? This week has been one of those weeks filled with frustration. It started on Monday and has continued until today and will probably continue for awhile. As crazy as it sounds the bother of the week has made me see how easy and pleasant my life is and I am grateful. It also made me aware that my temper needs some discipline and patience doesn’t happen without thought. Being reminded of these things was good, not fun but good.
This week was not what I like but just what I needed.
Sometimes we need a little trouble to keep us humble.
So, I celebrate all the small things I take for granted.
