Daily reminder

I wrote my mission statement in April, and have whittled it down to this:
Today I choose to focus on kindness, compassion and positivity.

Asking for what I want

I have been practicing asking for what I want. I have the right to ask for my needs to be met. The other person has the right to refuse.



Max out my TFSA (read all 2 entries…)
2013 on track

My auto transfers are all set up for 2013 and as of December 31, 2013, I will have maxed out my TFSA.

However, we are planning to do our renos this year, so I will be dipping into TFSA and will need to top it back up.

Set an intention

I made flossing a New Years resolution and flossed both last night and tonight. My gums look better. It makes my smile better. I am using two apps. Healthy habits and bloom. Plus, I listen to a song from my childhood when I floss. And, I made up a bingo card to reward myself for taking healthy actions, flossing being one if them.



Visit Germany
The purpose

I want to visit where my dad grew up. I want to see where his dad died. I want to see his dad’s grave. I want to feel the essence of my roots.

Done done done!

I’m done!!! I sewed in the ends and now am going to put it in the washer and present to Stephanie the next time I see her (which might be Nov 13). I had hoped to visit her at home to give it to her, but not sure when there would be an opportunity to visit.

Few stitches left!

I now have one strip of squares to join to the blanket. My goal is to finish in the month of october; I have one day left!

Once I finish, I will make one for Ryan and Erin I think. I also want to look at crocheting for charities. One step at a time!

Flossed!

Yesterday I flossed and it felt good. I got a tingly feeling and know that my teeth will look better and my gums will be less puffy. Yay step 1!

Closer

Yesterday I applied for a permanent 18APA in the RBP unit. I had applied for a 20 but didn’t even get an interview (neither did 3 others in my unit). I assume I will hear the results next week. Fingers crossed!! xox

Good for 2012

I was putting $250 biweekly until my EI and cpp were maxed out, and then upped it to $400 until the end of this year. Starting in January, I think I only have about $6k or $7k of room left, and assuming all goes well, it will be maxed out by the end of 2013. And the plan is for every year thereafter.

Almost done!

I’m now joining all the squares together. I have 2 rows done and will join all the strips once they are all done. There are six, meaning 4 left to do.

Being assertive

I’m working on saying what I want to say. Doing what I want to do. Labeling my emotions. Leaving the judgments out of my vocabulary. I didn’t want to go to the sandbar. Instead I stayed back and washed my hair in the lake!

~25 squares done!

I ran out of yarn (2 balls were not enough). Steph had her baby on July 15. I gotta keep going!

Progress

Happiness is a CHOICE. I can choose to get sucked into someone else’s bad mood or I can choose not to. I can choose to see the glass as half full.

Progress.

My secondment got extended for 3 months (July 13) so that is great news. I interviewed for another 18APA contract at MOF but didn’t get it. I’m waiting to hear back from a 19MCP permanent job that I interviewed for last week. I also have applied for a 12 month contract for a 18APA at MCYS and haven’t heard anything yet. There may also be some permanent 18APAs and 20APAs coming up on RBP.

Looked up lessons

A few weeks ago I looked up lessons but the one I wanted conflicted with my volleyball league on Tuesday’s. Will look again.

One square down!

I am working on a baby afghan for my friend Stephanie who is having a baby boy around July 10. So far I have one granny square down. About 59 more to go!!!

Getting better

I am asking for what I want but being flexible enough when I can’t get my needs met. Most of the time, I can get what I want and that DOES NOT make me selfish. Selfish is when I trump someone else or not take their needs into account.
