Ready

Other issues unfortunately took precedent over this one for many months. However, I am ready to renew my commitment to score below 26 beginning from my new baseline score of 53.

Another Guitar

I had to return the guitar that I had borrowed but I am working on borrowing another one. I figure that if I continue to play, I will buy one. But for the next couple of months I would like to borrow to make sure. I also cut my nails down so hopefully I will have a better chance at the chords.

Walking

I haven’t been “training” like I originally had hoped to do. However, I have been taking a 30-minute walk at least 6 days per week for the past 3 weeks so that’s a good start!

Been Practicing

I have been faithfully practicing a 3-chord song and singing it as well. I think I might need to cut my fingernails to make it better!



Make this the best decade of my life thus far (read all 3 entries…)
Lately

Lately things have been really messed up… both professionally and personally. I need a summer vacation to catch my breath and to try to get it together. It feels like I am living day to day managing crisis to crisis. That’s no way to live. I need to get it together!

In God's Hands

There are many things going on in my life right now that are not good. None of them are life-threatening but they most certainly could be life-changing. After a quick trip to the homeland, I have finally realized that I am not in control of the situations and I need to make the best of whatever happens. I probably should have done this years ago, but now I am letting these situations rest in God’s hands.

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31



be the best version of myself (read all 4 entries…)
Classy

Recently I had an important decision to make and I decided to take the high road and do the right thing. Once it was all said and done, a person that I admire told me that I am “classy” and she likes it. So I am proud that I was the best version of myself and even prouder that someone important to me noticed.

Sneakers

Just got a new pair of sneakers specially fitted at a fantastic store called Roadrunner. Hopefully they will alleviate some of the minor pain I have been experiencing when I have been training.



Get the ceiling repaired
Husband

I can’t take any credit for achieving this goal. My husband surprised me and scheduled the repair. It looks good. Hooray!

Attended Church

I attended a new church today. While its the first time that I entered the building and met the people, the religion was that same one that I was baptized, confirmed and raised with. It felt both comforting and comfortable. I would like to try a few different churches, but I definitely needed and appreciated my experience this morning.

Still there.



visit all 50 states
Six more to go

Since 2002, I have traveled to 44 states in our beautiful country. I had travelled to many of them as a child but decided that I would like to acheive this goal as an adult. As the list of remaining states dwindles, it becomes more difficult to go to new states. For example, North Dakota is in the interior of the country and will probably require a large scale road trip to achieve. Alaska and Hawaii are destination vacations and are quite expensive. I probably will travel to Oregon and Washington on the same trip, which I hope is when I drive the Pacific Coast Highway. Last but not least is Vermont. I aspire to take a road trip to Montreal someday and Vermont would be on the way.



listen to more music. (read all 19 entries…)
Soul Rebels Brass Band

I have fallen in love with the Soul Rebels. My favorite song is “Sweet Dreams” which is a cover of the Eurythmics’ version. The band members are good musicians but they are not amazing. Their passion, emotion and love of music is evident and that is what is so appealing to me.

My Own Evolution

I feel like I am finally evolving into myself. I am not as dependent on others’ opinions of me. I am gaining the confidence in myself to believe that my opinions are important and well-thought out. And best of all, I am applying it to my life and making it happen.
