Plans For The Week (14)

Quote of the day:
Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why. 
-Kurt Vonnegut

At times I feel the days actually have shorter hours in them. But alas, it's the same clock showing tie that we all have and amounting to 24 hours. Our time is limited, best to make the most of it. So here goes most of my plan for the coming week.

1. Be grateful for life and everything in it.
2. Do something daily that makes me happy.
3. Call up old friends just to say hello.
4. Worry less. Relax more.
5. Create a weekly meal plan.
6. Acknowledge things I can't change, focus on those I can.
7. Plan a mini trip.
8. Keep dreaming big.

Happy Sunday. I wish you progress with your plan if you've already made it, and if not -making one may just make the week easier for you. Be the best in the new week!

Peace. Love. Light!

  1. If they are old friends do you have their new number? lol good list to do.

    1. I wish you progress as well - have a beautiful Sunday

  2. I cannot follow a plan, never, so carpe diem
    but I can dream always !!
    the scientist one of my favourite song !

    Happy days for you and all!

  10. Time can be a very flexible beast.
    Dreaming big is always on my list too - even when it isn't.

  11. You amaze me with your ambitious, but worthy, plans for the week. A stranger made me happy today. Terry and I were trying to find our car in the rain, and we came upon a woman clipping roses on her rose bush. She passed me one and said, "This is for you. Enjoy your day." She made my day! Wishing you happiness this week!

  12. Love your song choice! I do try to make both weekly, and weekly meal, plans...things don't always go to plan, but the effort helps keep me going forward. Hope your week is a lovely one.

  13. Those are all excellent goals. I follow most of them myself.

  14. What a great list of goals!

    I hope your having a great time.

  24. As usual I plan to do what my better half tells me. It saves me having to think about these things. Yesterday we made jam.

  25. Its cool calling up those old friends. Especially if it has been a while. I stopped by my old university yesterday and walked around. Hard to believe its been 20 years. I got to thinking of those old friends though.

  26. Great post!

    Fabulous Sunday to you too.

  29. Good list! A few weeks ago I sort of combined 1&2 when I bought a notebook to write happy memories in. Anything I noticed during the day that made me smile. Like a cute little bird bobbing up the street, the way the sunshine looks on the lawn, that sort of thing. I'm supposed to do 5 every week but it's more like half the time. And we're off on a mini trip next weekend.

    As for 8, I'm trying to dream smaller and be content with my lot. But that's back to 1 again, isn't it?

    Happy week!

  30. Nice words!
    Thanks for visiting!
    Have a nice Sunday!

  31. Hi! It was nice to see you on my blog. You have good things to thrive for this week. Good luck!

  32. @ Gwil W: That's a nice way to save you having to think indeed. And I like Jam, I'm sure yours was super. Nice of you to visit and best wishes!

    @X: Sometimes its hard to believe how fast times flies, so its good to check up on others once in a while. Nice of you to drop by, and have a great week!

    @Helder Pereira: Hello, thanks a lot for coming by!

    @Chizoba Okoroji: That's great, hope as you take them with you things get accomplished quickly. Its nice to have you around, many thanks!

    @The History Anorak: What a fantastic idea about the notebook-which I'm sure reading at a later time will bring back sweet memories. Have a great mini trip, and being content sounds just about right. Many thanks for visiting!

    @♥ E LENA ♥: Hello and nice of you to come by, good to have you, many thanks!

    @lien: Greetings. Nice to see you here also, and please do come around anytime you want. Thank you and best wishes!

  33. Happy Sunday to you! Sounds like great plans for the new week. That mini trip is especially appealing.

  34. Wise and excellent list...

    But... -smile- I don't follow lists.

    Yes, I can 'plan' on doing this or that. But what do they say about life? It's what happens, while you are making other plans...

    No, I fully understand where you are coming from!!!!! And it is wisdom. Stack up the good stuff, before the negative stuff gets a chance to pop up!


  35. One thing I have been toying with, is to cease judgement, for a day at least!!! Of myself. And of others.

    Wish me luck!!!!


  36. I've got a real busy week ahead. Your no.4 is what I should keep in mind :)
    Thanks, enjoy your days!

  37. The time truly is short.. and we must make the most of it :D
    We must seize each moment and make it beautiful. Happy weekend :D

  38. Good list ! I will take point 8 for me!
    Happy new week!

  39. It's very important to create time and make the effort to do things that make us happy, it's easy to forget to. Great post!

  40. Planning a mini trip? That sounds like fun! :)

  46. Don't have a plan but I am thankful for each and every day and try to be the best that I can be. : ) I could use a couple more hours in the day too!!

  47. Worrying less is something that I really need to work on.

  48. Your plans for the week are so on point, I totally agree with all of these things, especially to keep dreaming big. Moreover, I love this Coldplay song too :)

  49. Sometimes I do think the hands of the hock go around more swiftly as we grow older. ;)

  50. This summer has been CRAZY! I'm just looking forward to getting back in my routine. Every time I think it's over, I get news that someone else is coming to visit. UGH!
