Plans For The Week (28)


Quote of the day: 
The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments. -Gustave Flaubert


Time, how precious a resource. The one thing we seek the most, yet put to use poorly. I'm guilty of this -a lot less than I used to be. I prioritize, and estimate things. You could say I have a certain pattern, a way of getting things done. It helps keep disorder at bay, like a surge barrier protecting against flooding. Time is indeed valuable.

Here are some of my plans for week, keeping in mind that time is of essence.

1. Do three early morning workouts.
2. Prepare for a mid week interview and business meeting.
3. Prioritize pending tasks and goals.
4. Clean up my email boxes.
5. Read a new book.
6. Remember that not all can get done, and not overstress myself.
7. Sleep by 11pm daily.
8. Find time for stillness, reflection.
9. Dream big.


Best wishes in the new week, have you made your plans yet?

Peace & Serenity.

    1. If this act from an 11 year old doesn't teach you forgiveness, I doubt if anything else will...

      It reads:

      "My daughter has not seen her biological dad since she was four. She’s 11 now. When she was two he contacted me and asked if I would allow him to terminate his parental rights so he could stop paying child support and I agreed.. I wanted to spare her the heartache of a revolving door father and the sacrifice of the financial support was well worth him never being able to disappoint her again.

      I never lied to her about where he went or who her dad was.. I have always answered her questions in the most age appropriate way possible.

      When she was four he contacted me and told me he has been diagnosed with cancer and would like to see her. I set aside a day and we met in the park. He had asked for two hours. He stayed 20 minutes and we never heard from him again..

      Over the summer we ran into somebody that knows him and they commented on how she looks like his other children. They elaborated that he has settled down and has a family now. My stomach tied itself in knots thinking of how hurtful that must be to my daughter..

      I cut the conversation short and we got in the car to leave and that’s when I saw her smiling. She said:

  4. I really like 2 things in your list this week. Clean up your email boxes-I could use doing that! And also to remember I can't do everything. That's what last week's biggest challenge was. I am going to make that my one and only goal for this week! Hope its a good one!

  7. Plans for the week ahead are a great idea. You have inspired me to write up meal plans for the week. I am always wondering what I should cook! Have a great week.:-)

  8. Number 6 is my favorite. People stress over what they can't do way too often.

    Have a fabulous week ahead. ☺

  9. Working out is good for you, physically and mentally. I love to take long walks. Right now I'm reding "Bonjour Tristess", in FRENCH! I'm brushing up, I studied it for many years but I don't speak it well. Have a nice week!
