Weekly Intention – Joy

TheFantabulous Andrea Schroeder from ABC Creativity sends a reminder every week to set an intention. I’m so very grateful for people like her who help to remind me of where I’m heading!

Last week, my intention was to luxuriate in my rest and enjoy the energy when it came and I pretty much have followed that.  My house is slowly coming together–not that it’s that bad, just not quite where I want it to be and a few more days and it should be back to “normal”–whatever that is.
I also had an intention of looking for and being “joy” and I also had a few moments of that too. I set up my Christmas tree–and I really love it!  This year I didn’t use garland or ribbon just all of my tree decorations and covered the branches!  I think it’s great!
And…I never do this but when I saw this outfit at the dollar store, could not help myself…
This is a picture of my dog, Ruby.  She definitely brings joy into my life.  She is the sweetest temperament, full of joy–always has been.  She is confident, happy, and loving–just like I wish to be, well, am getting there.
So, I will continue to look for joy wherever it may be.  Inside of me and around me.
Have a great week!

Life is What You Make It

I haven’t written here since July, and it’s because I’ve been so busy. It seems that I’ve been saying “I’m soooo busy” so often that I’ve created a very busy life. That is not what I’d like to have so I’m going to have to stop saying how busy I am.

I got a new puppy last weekend and she’s a gem!!! Her name is Ruby, she’s 4.5 months old, and she is a super happy and friendly puppy.

Here’s a picture of her–I don’t think the picture does her justice so if I get a better picture, I’ll post it.

Also, about 4 weeks ago, I joined Weight Watchers. The first four weeks went pretty good, down 12.4 lbs, but then I had a week where I ate too much and was retaining water, etc…So, this weekend I re-committed to my weight reduction and have had a better week of taking care of myself by eating lots of fruit, veggies, and lower carb and fat counts.

I just need to keep reminding myself why I’m trying to take care of myself. I want to live my best life and I know that my weight is part of what holds me back from doing so.

I’m slowly getting things accomplished around my office and my house so I’ve been feeling better about that–I had kind of let things go a bit around my house with the “busyness” I had created in my life.

Hope your day is great!
