I was jolted into awareness this morning that for nearly a full year, I have wiped down the bathroom every morning and I have never gone to bed with a sink of dirty dishes. It happened with diligent baby steps and then just became habit.
My room mate had a friend stay in her guest room and she needed to share my bathroom. I heard her exclaim as she entered the room, what a soothing and beautiful bathroom. She thanked me at the end of her visit for the use of my spa. This is a simple room, but in this area I think I have created a home of love and light. 22 months ago
It took me a long time and lots of heart break to settle down the deep parts inside of me and realize that I am the only one that will be with me my whole life. I no longer strand myself. I try my very best to keep promises I have made to myself, just as fiercely as I keep promises to anyone else. I don’t judge myself as harshly as I used to, although I do hold myself accountable for my own actions and my own feelings. It took awhile to settle the conflicts in my own soul, but so worth the work. Good for you. Life will be so much easier now.
I forgot about the part where you can have slap upside the head moments while doing this, moments when you are made aware of your short comings. I will still continue. 22 months ago
I have returned to one hour of meditation each morning and this was a huge message that came out of my meditation. Shut up! Let others live their own lives and I need to work on mine. The image that came to my mind was, if my yard is a mess and I keep telling people (daughter, love, sons, friends) how to clean up their yard, I am a fool.
Shutting up now. Printing my list and getting busy. 22 months ago
I am grateful I got a letter off to my 84 year old friend. She is sad.
I am grateful for my new car. I haven’t had my own car in over a year. I made it to church today. It was such a beautiful, peaceful and prayerful Mass.
I am grateful for the conversation with the astrophysicist grad student sitting next to me while we were having leg massages and pedicures. Truly a mind expanding as well as mind bending conversation while in the midst of serious girly girl. I do love my life.
I am grateful for Trader Joes. Excellent food. Refrigerator is stocked.
I am grateful for the melodic voice of Connie Dover. Comforting! 22 months ago
Actually there is money. I am not respecting the money. I am angry that I am “where I am at” in life. Much has been taken from me. Well, I am aware not that that is BS, I now know that I really did have a voice and I should have used it. I didn’t so, I am dependent, for the time being. I also know I am working out of being dependent. No, I am not doing too much shopping. To the contrary, I deprive myself.
There is such power in your words – Like physics, putting an object in motion takes much more effort than keeping it in motion.
It really is that simple isn’t it. Thank you for the fulcrum, I’ll get my lever. 22 months ago
Why do I add such drama to my life by not getting this under control? I know I am doing a much better job, but I could do so much better. 22 months ago

I got my bill today from the dentist. It didn’t seem right. I sat right down and made the call. A payment was not recorded properly. It could have cost me a late fee. In the past I would have let something like this slide.
I am beginning to reread “The Millionaire Next Door”. I’m not sure I could ever be so frugal, but I do know I don’t need to let so much money slip through my fingers. 22 months ago
I am grateful for the most f…ed up day in a very long time. My love relationship took a nose dive. My roommate gave her dog away without letting me say goodbye and we (the dog and I) have had a two year love/hate relationship. I told my homeless unemployed daughter, no more money. And. . . I watched “Babel”. An amazing movie actually, just not really a good one for today.
I am grateful for heart healthy soup from a can that you can just pull the lid off and warm up.
I am so grateful for ice cubes and the cold ice tea going down my throat.

I think it is important to start keeping track every day, with every purchase and see where the money goes.
I have automated my bill paying on debt and I just leave it alone. How wonderful to watch that amount shrink.

It’s nearly 11:30 and I had caffeine much too late in the day. This one thing is so central to staying well and improving my whole physical self. I will read all of the information from the sleep specialist tomorrow and make the changes. The last third of my life depends on it. 23 months ago
