Plans For The Week (18)

Quote of the day:
Be steady and well-ordered in your life so that you can be fierce and original in your work. -Gustave Flaubert

Its a great start to the month. The past week went by quickly, with quite a handful of plans being completed as planned. A lot of events occurred during the week, and in the blogging world hearing the news of the killing of a Niloy Neel, a blogger in Bangladesh was a sad one. Indeed prejudice and intolerance is increasing in the world.

Its the start of a new week with old and new plans alike, so here are some of mine.

1. Appreciate each day and be thankful.
2. Meditate for 10 minutes daily.
3. Cook and eat more healthy meals.
4. Work on my personal projects.
5. Read a book.
6. Be kind to everyone that I come across.
7. Workout twice in the week.
8. Find a new challenge.
9. Work, rest, play.
10. Keep dreaming big.

So that's it, there goes some of my main plans for the week. Have you made your plans yet? Have an amazing week, and be the best you can be!

Peace & Love

  1. Bangladesh like Saudi Arabia periodically serves 3 year terms as member of the United Nations Council for Human Rights. How can that be?

    The UN must accept its share of responsibility regarding Niloy Neel, Raif Badawi and others being made victims.

  2. I read of the sad one should take law into his hands and take a soul.... I think this week will be a great one for me

  3. Not sure whether prejudice and intolerance are really on the increase. Looking at history, it has always been there, and - it seems - even on a larger scale than now. Take the crusades and witch hunts of medieaval times, for instance.

    As far as plans for next week are concerned, it is my last working week before my annual Yorkshire holiday! There will be lots - but not too much - to do; it's my Mum's birthday on Wednesday, and I hope to fit in a run with my friend and a visit to the gym - provided it's not too hot. On Friday, we had 38 Celsius here in the south of Germany, and it's not much cooler now. Much as I love summer and can cope well with heat, even for me that's too much to work out. Same goes for cooking - really not in the mood for hot meals these days, rather salads, raw peppers, and hummus.

  4. @Gwil W: I agree, more needs to be done on all levels. Many thanks for your visit and comment!

    @glowy shoe: Wishing you the very best of the week!

    @Librarian: Yes it can be said that its always been a part of history no doubt about that. As for your holiday, I'm sure you are really looking forward to that. Happy Birthday to your mom, and best wishes in the new week, thank you!

  5. I'm so sorry about the blogger's barbaric death. I wish people would practice tolerance and kindness on a daily basis.

  6. I read about the blogger's death, how tragic ~

    I like your plans, specially the last one, keep on dreaming big ~


  7. Work. Rest. Play. Good plan. Easy to stick to too.

  8. Hello, great quote for the day! What a tragic death, it is a sad world we live in! Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  9. Sad news -
    I really wished it would be more peace on this earth!!
    Always wars and violence -
    Hope your new week will be a good one!
    Happy Sunday !

  10. I wish people would be more tolerant and respectful of other people's lives. And sounds like a good wish this week. More Jeffrey Archer on your book reading list?

  11. Tolerance sure isn't something some people can do it seems. Good plans indeed

  12. @Medeia Sharif: Yes sad indeed. Thank you, always good to have you visit!

    @Heaven: Thank you so much for visiting and have a great week!

    @Birdman: Greetings, very good to see you on here again. Many thanks!

    @eileeninmd: Hello, happy new week to you and best wishes!

    @froebelsternchen Susi: Yes I agree. Its so nice of you to stop by, have a great week!

    @My name is Erika.: Yes I wish the same too. No Archer this week, but most likely a Grisham. How are you, thanks for stopping by!

  13. @Pat Hatt: True indeed. Many thanks for stopping by!

  14. Good luck with your projections for this week; think i have # 9 in process (◕‿◕。)

    much love...

  15. Great plans! The step - finding a new challenge can leave all others behind for timing reason... :) Enjoy Sunday!

  16. My list for the week is in no way as grand as yours. At the top is do the laundry! LOL
    I hadn't heard of that tragic death - been out of the loop on vacation.

  17. Tragedy and mayhem have been happening since man began walking this earth. As the population grows it only fuels both of these. Also in today's world of instant communication...we hear about it sooner and in more ways than the nightly news. So sad.

    You have great plans, Blogoratti and I always find that your inspirations help kick-start a few of my own...

    1. Start painting again...even if I need to hold my bad hand steady with my other hand :)
    2. Keep books, photos, and my tiny studio.
    3. Visit my woodland more often...this is the place where I find myself again.

    Have a lovely Sunday~

  18. @Gillena Cox: That's lovely, best wishes with your goals for the week and thanks a lot for visiting!

    @humbird: Yes indeed. Many thanks and have a great week!

    @Marcia: Hello. My list is in no way grand, I'll probably do laundry too :)
    Its nice of you to visit, thank you!

    @Jan: I agree with your thoughts friend. And thank you for your kind words, if my plans inspire you, I am even more inspired by your visit. Those look like really great and achievable goals, I wish you success in the new week. Warm greetings friend!

  19. I always wake up each morning thankful for another new day, my love ones and my friends. Learning to relax more and do what I am able to do.

  20. If everyone practiced your habits and adopted your plans, it would be a different world, yes? So sorry for Mr. Neel and his family.

  21. I had granola for breakfast and rode my bike. I can check off two. Need help with a few of the rest. :)

  22. I see less and less tolerance in the world. It's frightening.

    Have a fabulous week and I hope you meet all your goals. ☺

  23. The world is going insane...the intolerance isn't surprising anymore.

  24. I love the fact that you meditate. Frankly, I say I don't have the time to do it, but it's just I don't MAKE the time :)

    xoxo, ♥

  25. This task list can only be made by the one who indulges in creative pursuits. All the best for the week.
    P.s. I did not know about the news. I just read that and it is shocking! Why people can't let others breathe and decide their own paths. Killing someone won't prove if God exists or doesn't! I don't know what to say- ashamed of humanity and sometimes this religion thing!!!

  26. It sounds like the plan for a good week! I especially love "Dream big."

  27. @Nancy Chan: Great habits. Nice of you to share, and do enjoy the week ahead!

    @Chris Lally: I do hope so. Its so kind of you to visit and comment, thank you!

    @susie: I'm sure you'll get all the help you need, have a lovely week!

    @Sandee: Indeed it is. Nice of you to drop by!

    @Nma Ojike: I agree. Many thanks for visiting!

    @Petite Maison of Fashion: I know right, its all about making time to do it. Welcome and do drop by any time, thanks!

    @Shesha Chaturvedi: I appreciate your kind words. I didn't know what to say either about the news, sad really. Nice of you to drop in, do have a nice week!

  28. @Sherry Blue Sky: Hello, so nice of you to visit. Thanks!

  29. Great post!
    Have a nice week-end!

  30. I hope you can do all your plans ! I really need to do no.3 too!

    I have a question..Could you please visit my post "wishlist" ( ) and click the link I've attached with the word "SheIn" or any other link of this post. I really hope that you can support me! That would be great if you could do this :) <3

  31. Great plans. I'm doing the workout thing at least twice as well, and reading a book. Definitely plan to be kind as often as possible. So very important.Hugs and Happy Sunday! Ro

  32. number 8 sounds challenging!

  33. Order is is bit 'lacing" for us...
    we are highly intelligent (according to the Federal Gov. Stacey has an IQ of well over 150)... and creative minds tend to be a bit "cluttered"....

  34. I love this list! Fantastic!

  35. I love this list! Fantastic!

  36. I also was sorry to read of that fellow blogger's death. Several of your week's goals mirror some of my own, and I would add to learn something new each day whenever possible.

    @Gil Zetbase: Its kind of you to visit and comment, greetings!

  38. Good luck with all of your goals. I hope to write/schedule a bunch of reviews this week as I'm going to start getting busier next week and won't have as much time.
