day 3...etc....

I have been reading blogs, inspiring blogs, lately. And today it occured to me that there are many good people. People who are trying to do their best. And improving. I think that struck me today because of the *other* side I have been hearing too. Unhappy things. Things that make me sad. And I worry about those people who are going thru those unhappy things. (Regan would tell me that I wouldn't be me if I didn't worry about those people.)
It is good that there are positive things, people trying to do their best. All the cliques .... sunshine... smiles... and of course the roses. Really though, those things can lift us up. Improve out outlook. And I am glad they are there. I am glad to hear about good things. About people trying to do better. We need a little more positivity in this world!
so

on to postive things....
I went to bed at a good time today. :) But getting up is harder for me. And I sure struggled. Got to get my body used to the morning. (And don't laugh all you morning people) Setting a goal to get up at 7am IS early for me.... I would love to put like 6am... but I have to make this realistic and achieveable. So I'm aiming for 7 to be up and showered so that I can have some time with Regan and I before the kids get up. (As long as Lucy co-operates!)

Two things to show - my goals page for my {21} day journal and my day 3. I wrote out the goals because Regan showed me this quote....
"When we deal in generalities, we shall never succeed.
When we deal in specifics, we shall rarely have a failure.
When performance is measured, performance improves.
When performance is measured and reported, the rate of performance accelerates."
-Thomas S. Monson-



And about today...... here is my page

Love your pages.
So fresh and crisp.
Thanks for your inspiration.
Yes it's hard to go to bed at night. (I use to stay up late and create....the night-time is kind of "my time" of the day.)
Getting up at 7 is hard as well, but I know you can do it!
Good for you. ;-)

This is stunning work! Love it! I am struggling with the same bad habits..... one of my goals in this challenge is to get to bed earlier. Its almost impossible! I´m the most creative at night time...

Sherry said...

Worthy goals! I could second them for sure. In fact, I have a list of things I'd like to change but chose to begin the exercise habit -- it's long overdue. Thanks to Rhonna and digi gales, like you, I am also developing a burning desire to learn digital scrapping and art work. The time thing, though... I'm sure you understand. Hmmm... summer's coming. When we have more daylight hours does it mean we can get by on less sleep? LOL

Oh I love the designs your doing. It's so hard to do until you write it out but you can do it.
