So long 2016 …

Looking back on a trip around the calendar is an excellent use of time. And my 2016 was a crazy one. How was yours?

  • It is the first year we did not add on a grandchild for the past 5 years! Crazy! (But we are adding one in 2017, so all is well.)
  • We moved from Illinois to Nevada! What? Really? yup!
  • I turned to a plant based diet! I did what exactly? It still seems strange. (Not as strange as the fact that we live in Las Vegas.) I wrote a little blurb about it here. Vegan, Really?
  • My writing took a serious back seat to the other things happening in my world. (Not my favorite thing on the list.)

It is vital to look at where you were and where you are. What are you happy with? What are you frustrated by? Continue reading

I DID IT!!!

Seriously, I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I am. I made it the entire length of the 60 Day Challenge I set for myself.

ALL THE WAY TO THE END!!!

60 days for myself

YAY ME!

 

Sometimes you just gotta stop for one second and be proud of yourself. Sometimes you gotta just pat yourself on the back and say YAY ME!

That’s where I am. However, I am absolutely not stopping here. I have set a Challenge for myself for the next 30 Days. AND I am joining with a friend for a series of 10 Day Challenges where we are pushing ourselves in one or two areas and holding each other accountable.

There is nothing like the feeling of success. Not. One. Thing.

Are you challenging yourself in an area right now? Please comment on this blog (below). Share it with the world. Make it public. It seems a little more real when you do.

I can’t wait to encourage you back.

Pat Meyers
Day 61 of the 60 Day Challenge!!!

It is so easy to help others

Or to do someone a favor.

I answer, “Sure!” or “I will if I can.”

But what about doing ourselves a favor? That seems difficult at times. Continue reading

Making Waves

I joined the YMCA a few months ago to use the pool for therapy on my ailing knee as well as exercise. I love the water.

It has proven to be one of the best decisions I’ve made in a while. Three weeks in and the swelling was down by 80%. After six weeks I no longer wore my brace. Now I love going for the exercise and the relaxation. Continue reading

Pondering Discipline

The Bible says:

Proverbs 13 18a

Whoever disregards discipline comes to poverty and shame! Oh my!

So, then, not wanting poverty or shame, what is the opposite of this warning? Whoever regards discipline comes to prosperity and respect? That sounds about right, yes?

Discipline in what? The answer is clear: everything. Continue reading
