August - MY month

Saturday, August 01, 2009

I just journaled this in my private journal, and thought, you know, Tina, this should be a blog. So, I copied and am pasting, and that is that:

August is gonna be MY month. I have spent July doing for others. With love, of course, and I wouldn't have it any other way. But I am going to take care of Tina this month, because this and the next few months are gonna be INSANE, and if I don't take care of Tina, I will be gaining weight, beating myself up and feeling miserable..

Here's my plan:

1. exercise at least 5 days a week, NO EXCUSES
2. get the junk out of the house and eat well, NO EXCUSES. I mean, it's not like I don't know how to do this stuff
3. take time for myself and do something for myself at least once a week. I am sick of not doing for myself ever. I am going to a movie this month if I have to go alone. Period.
4. sit down within the next two days and set some goals and a list of rewards for reaching those goals.
5. enjoy life, because it is TOO short and the hard work will always be there waiting for me.

    You GO, Tina! I have a similar plan for September... still too many obligations and committments this month to refocus... I'm happy at the moment to simply do the minimum, but I'm starting to CRAVE focus on and time for myself! Thanks for the reminder and for shining a light on the path!

    Yay T:
    I'm so glad you're going to take care of my friend for a change! What can be better exercise thatn walking the beach? What soothes the soul better than time to reconnect with family and one's self?

    I think you'll end the month refreshed and proud of who you are, what you do and how much you mean to those around you.I loved Denise's quote, it's a rewording of the one we've all heard, but still good.

    I look forward to hearing from your happy self on the journey.

    Love ya,

    I've been looking for inspirational quotes and your blog brought this one to mind:
    "At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent." -Barbara Bush

    Follow through with Tina month with no regrets or guilt. You are as important as all the others you have put first during the last couple months. You deserve time for you. Good luck!

    And don't forget, if momma is not happy, the rest of the family isn't either.

    Good luck with your plan. Goals are very attainable. Let's hope August brings challenges to all of us.
    Keep a positive attitude and you will succeed.
