Just One Added Thing Journal

So the idea I wrote about yesterday… I implemented it and added one more thing to the idea:  Journal it!  Make an account of that next thing — every day — that one thing I added.  Accountability is a powerful tool. So is follow-through and accomplishment! So I have...

Just one added thing each day

his morning as I sat at my dining room table, I thought, what if I did one new thing each day for the rest of this year, how many things would I be able to do?  How many additional things would be accomplished?  Two Hundred Sixty Six.  Imagine: 266...

This Could Be…

As I read year-end letters, more Christmas cards and letters, headlines and articles, a common theme is always revisited this time of year — sure as New Year’s resolutions, are the slogans and affirmations: Out with the old, in with the New! This Year’s the Year for You!  The...

I just came across a little note in my basket… and thought, this is just what I’m needing!  The reminder to have a Mary heart and a Martha mind was the gist of the note.  I’m personalizing it a bit to be: Mary thoughts and Martha hands.   I must...
