Be mindful about all purchases, choose local/organic/small businesses when possible (read all 4 entries…)
More incentive

I opened my own small brick and mortar shop last fall, so this goal is even more important to me than ever. Each morning I walk to the local cafe for my cup of locally roasted, organic, fair trade coffee, I buy office supplies from a local company instead of a big box store, eat at small local restaurants, and try to support my fellow small businesses as much as possible. As I have made connections with other small business owners who are trying to revive our downtown business district, I realize that buying local is so much more than the products themselves, it is about fostering a sense of community and knowing customers and business owners on a very human scale.

Road trip

I am grateful for my friend who invited my daughter and I to accompany her and her daughter to New York City tomorrow. Isadora is so terribly excited to be going and I am so looking forward to a wonderful time with the four of us.

That when my car broke down tonight (yet again) just as I was pulling in front of my Mother’s house. I can leave it there until I can get someone to come and look at it.

That my Mother let me borrow her car.

The people who have put in a good word about me for the job I am trying to get.

Being able to help several people today.

Being able to borrow an alarm clock so I can get up in time to start our trip.

A wonderful, snuggly bedtime tonight with Isadora and Tristan. We have had cranky temper tantrums for too many nights in a row, it is so nice to be back to enjoying eachother at bedtime.

Come back to the fold, use 43T every day. (read all 2 entries…)

Not quite back to daily on this goal, but I have been incorporating 43t back into my life and I am glad it is here to return to when I get a few moments to spare.
