So far this week I’ve logged 12 miles. It feels really good to be able to get on the treadmill after work and “run away” anything I may have taken offense to during the day. But lately… It hasn’t been much.
I am continuing my research on Work place bulling and I am amazed at how I could identify with a lot of what is already written. But at the time it was going on, I was unaware of the terms. I just knew something was not right.
Words are so important. I’m beginning to understand why we have to account for every word spoken at judgment. Words are so important. It is my hope that I use my words wisely and to uplift others. I don’t want to be the person that bring others down.
My job is wonderful. Who would have thought that I would finally get to a place where there is no stress.
Well… It’s time to list my goals once again and to work towards those goals.
a. Train for a Marathon. The next one here is December 11, but I doubt that I will make that one. I will continue to train though. I like having high mileage weeks.
b. Work through exercise DVDs. I have the space in the Lounge to do my aerobics, so now in addition to the running. I have to pull out the Fitness DVDs and MP3s.
c. iTrain- Use iTrain workouts more – I have some good strength training iTrain mp3’s. now it’s time to put them to good use. They really are good workouts.
a. Finish making Anna some summer dresses. She is such a girly-girl. She loves to have pretty dresses and she’ll look good in some home-made dresses… LOL
b. Use my design- Pattern-making books more. Try my hand at designing….. I can do it.
a. Continue organizing the house. It really is great to have everything in its own place. I have access to all my books without having to trip over any of them. I have been reading/researching much more and it’s nice to have everything close by without feeling “closed in.”
b. Cookbooks. crack open the cookbooks a little more. I’m committed to eating in more often, so that means that I need to cook. So…. planning meals on the weekend, shopping with a list in hand, and cooking more.
All-in-all.. things have settled down a lot!! Even in the face of chaos today, I am able to walk in Truth. And by walking in Truth, I am able to see the games people play and laugh. I am so seeing the changes in me and I like them. I like them a lot. There are still mountains to climb and puddles to watch out for, but I now see the puddles and jump over them (sometimes I walk right through them—just to have some fun). and the mountains—- I celebrate while I’m climbing them— thanking God all the way. Thanking Him for the peace that He’s given to me.
Starting a new Bible Study by Charles Swindoll…. .Insights on Romans: The Christian’s Constitution, Volume 1 & 2 It’s good to get back to the basics.
Charles Swindoll and Charles Stanley are two of the minister’s that I’ve always gone back to when I wanted to hear the Word of the Lord.
