My End of April Review
Thinking Back Over the Month of April I am:
Most proud of: I am most proud of completing the A to Z Challenge.
Deeply grateful for: I am deeply grateful for friends who are still hanging in there with me on my grieving trip. Thanks to a special group: Betty, Wendy, Myra, Ellie, Hilary, and Gram are just a few of the names that jump to mind. They encourage me to take it slowly and one day at a time. And I am deeply grateful for that.
Choosing to be at peace with: I have such a hard time choosing to be at peace with anything. Ask my grandchildren. They will tell you that 'granny never lets go of ANYTHING'. So for the next month I am going to chose to be at peace with the things I do not get done. I'll just put it on the list for tomorrow. Or for next month! And try really, really hard to be at peace. Today I choose to be at peace for all that didn't happen in April!
Giving myself credit for: I am giving myself credit for what I can get done. It's only me. I have the kids to help but they also have busy lives and while I can use them when I need to I need to give myself credit for what I can do!
Delightfully surprised by: Okay, I am thinking. What surprised me in the month of April. Oh I know, I know. I was delightfully surprised by the taste of a wild pig. I expected it to taste 'wild'. But it didn't. And there was almost no fat at all when I cooked it!. Like less than a teaspoon in the bottom of the skillet. Lean, wild pig!
Looking ahead to May
I am super excited about: I am super excited about getting outside. Feeling the warm sun shining on my face. Digging in the dirt. Mowing the grass. And yes, even pulling weeds. One of my favorite things to do.
I am going to experiment with: During the month of May, as part of my New Years goal to
Eat better, I am going to experiment with Dr. Oz's Two-Week Rapid Weight Loss Plan. Then in June I can start with the Total Choice program. I haven't decided yet when I will start. But I am doing all my homework now. I have done my best with specific plans in the past when I want to change my eating habits. Wish me luck!
I am fully committed to: As I start my new eating plan I am going to (once again) become fully committed to walking at least 3 times a week. You will see I don't say every day because I know that I won't do that. So let's start with just 3 days! Go Paula!!
I am consciously prioritizing: I am consciously prioritizing my spring cleaning list. There are just some things I need to work on more than others. So I need to prioritize. Do you do this?
I am planning to read: I have just started The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult. I'm not very far but I have a feeling it is going to be a heavy read. So my next book is going to be a light one. Any suggestions?
I am obsessed with learning more about: I am obsessed with reading and learning more about Dr. Oz' Total 10 program.
I am keeping this quote in mind:
Now, The Big Question:
4. Spiritual Growth
What do you think? Do you have things you need to work on and things you need to let go of?
