Because I have waited to long to be the person I want to be-I will start becoming me, today. This Is My Journey of Self-Discovery and Improvement: Mind, Body, and Soul.

Well...these 2 things are why I have not been as good at sticking to the things on my list!! I was up late designing this 2nd invite...and then tonight again trying to get them all ready. I blurred out the important personal information on the 2nd one...but you get the idea. The first one is one I made for a senior I did pictures of...I think I have found a new hobby!!! I love creating stuff I am finding. So far I have done these 2 and my business cards, but I can't wait to do more!!! I am thinking even starting to do designs for my scrapbooking stuff!!! Anyways, I have done something active for 3 days, today just crunches because 1) we got a huge blizzard, and 2) I had to get these things done! Tuesday I got to go walking with my friend Shanoa-love her-we actually ended up going 2 miles! It is always nice to have a change and workout with someone else!!! It was also nice outside both Monday and Tuesday so I was able to be out both days, I even got a little sun!!! I have yet to do anything else on my list of 2 do's....but hopefully tomorrow I can catch up!!!
Change Will Not Come If I Wait For Some Other Person Or Some Other Time. I Am The One I've Been Waiting For, I am The Change That I Seek. The Journey Of A Thousand Miles Begins With A Single Step, My Step; Thus, Let My Journey Begin.
What It's All About
I know...A 3rd blog...what am I thinking? I wanted somewhere to write down the things that I am working on. I needed somewhere that I could challenge myself, somewhere I could remain accountable for true change. Most of all I needed somewhere that I could remind myself that I can change, even if it is one small thing at a time! Each week I will be giving myself new goals, in various area's of my life that I feel need improvement. I will also give progress on how I am doing with each goal, and post things that I am doing to stay creative. I truly believe that by starting with myself, maybe someday I can help to make some global changes-and if not, at least I will have become the person I want to be. If any of you would like to join me, please do so, and let me know where your journey is leads you.
Harriet Tubman: Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. Henri Bergson: To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. Leo Tolstoy: Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. Mairead Maguire: We frail humans are at one time capable of the greatest good and, at the same time, capable of the greatest evil. Change will only come about when each of us takes up the daily struggle ourselves to be more forgiving, compassionate, loving, and above all joyful in the knowledge that, by some miracle of grace, we can change as those around us can change too. Pablo Picasso: I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. W.E.B. Du Bois: The most important thing to remember is this: To be ready at any moment to give up what you are for what you might become. Mary Englebreit: The best changes often start as a single, simple thought. Think big, and discover the ways to make your dreams real. Unkown: If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
