Motivation to write...

Geez... I started this blog a while ago as an inspiration to keep me writing on a daily basis. Doesn't seem to be that way lately. I mean I do write/blog, but under my page. It just seems an easier place to keep track of my weight loss journey & chat with friends at the same time.

Who knows... maybe sometime at some point during 2009 I'll start to develop some new ideas to jot about & expand upon. New books that I've been reading. Journeys that I'm taking or challenges that are presented before me.

Still early in the new year here. Anything is possible!

Into 2009!!!

It has been a long while since my last blog entry. Although I plan on getting back into the habit. I do know that all things come in time.

So far, I did set up some goals for myself coming into the new year:

** Get out from under this black cloud! Commit to do Whatever it takes todo so! <== been in a serious funk, but have been working on this one!!
** Get finances under control. Stop unnecessary spending. The hardest being - not to purchase any new books this year. Now that will be theHARDEST challenge so far. lol...
** Goes with the one above - Get ALL current books that I own in order & READ all books that I haven't read yet (that I ALREADY OWN!!). lol....
** No more excuses - get to goal size & maintain!!
** Dedicate more quality time to spend with Nicolas - ex: game night (no TV- just us hanging out) or movie night...
** Dedicate 1 day to myself - mandatory once a month for whatever I want to do (pampering, hanging with friends etc.,).

So not too many, but enough to get me through the year, one step at a time.

One thing I have noticed since January is this one bible verse that I keep seeing every where it seems...

"... and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14

Not too sure what the Lord is trying to tell me, but I plan on definitely taking the time to figure it out!!!

Stay Blessed
