Rainy Monday

Another rainy day. We had a great weekend though. The temps were close to eighty and we ran, ran, ran. The dogs enjoyed quite a few trips to the park. They love running free. We have a huge yard, but the park is much larger. The best part is hardly anyone uses it. I’m sure as the weather improves that will change. It could be that the kids in the neighborhood are just too old to hang out there.
I attended my chapter meeting Saturday. Hillary Rettig was the guest speaker and she spoke about procrastination. That’s my middle name! LOL
She said procrastination isn’t just a fear of failure it’s a terror. I believe that’s true for most. Sometimes that’s the case with me…most of the time it’s just laziness.
She also talked about not beating ourselves up when external forces interfere with our plans. This was great advice. Life happens. Just deal with it and adjust the plans. I have a few friends who beat themselves up constantly – YOU know who you are!!!! ;)
Feeling good about myself I jumped on the treadmill today for thirty minutes. I’ve been saying I was going to do this for a few months. I finally did it! I just have to continue doing it. I watch the DH doing it 4-5 times a week, surely I can too.
Off to do some writing while the grand daughter is off visiting her father.
Happy Monday!

  1. I'm a self-beater... which sounds really, really wrong unless it's in this context. LOL.

    I like how even your description of running makes me feel calm. How do you do that?
