Promise for the Upcoming Week

I have been thinking about the word “Simple” today. Life should be simple. Relationships should be simple. So, why is it that I find myself feeling like life and relationships are not simple?

Today I decided to focus on something fun. My friend Katie Orse uses a journal for her business and creative thoughts. If you are looking for a journal check out Katie’s website . There you will find great handmade journals. I decided not to buy one (yet) so I created one today. I want to make sure I will use a journal. I do not want my journal to become a chore. If it works out I have my eye on the Liz journal with the lime green flower.

My Journal is tabbed with areas for things that are important in my life: faith, simple, running, creativity, and leadership.
This week I am also going to try a new schedule. Instead of getting up early to run – I am going to work online (nursing students) before heading to the hospital. I am taking cloths so that I can lift some weights at lunch. When I get home in the evenings a bike ride or a run will be first on my list. Of course my day will end with puppy therapy.

My promise for this upcoming week – keep it simple. Focus on what is important.
Have a Graet Week ~

Breathe in and out - I can do this!

My Word for 2011 is Simple – Life is simple. We (people) make it complicated. The very basics of living– breathe in and out, eats, sleep, and live by the golden rule. The plan was for each of us to live our lives making a difference in someone else’s life.

Every day I strive to follow these four simple steps. I ran Wednesday and had planned to run on Thursday, but I did not get home till after 10 PM from the charitable health clinic. I had two classes to check-in. So – running did not happen.

Friday started out behind. I overslept and was late getting to the local radio station to talk about the upcoming Wild Turkey Foundation banquet. I did make – but I hate being late.

Home early form work – so running can happen tonight. Only 31 days till Little Rock ~ now I am starting to have second thoughts – what if I can’t finish the race? What if I am the last to cross the finish line?

Breathe in and out – keep it simple ~ I can do this!
