Resolutions…So, how ya doin?

How many New Year’s resolutions did you make?

You know, most of the time, we set ourselves up for failure.  We make too many resolutions and place our expectations too high for ourselves.  This year, we are going for total success!  Are you ready?

Pick one to two changes that you want to make in your life.  A good example is to exercise three times a week.  So, out of a total of seven days, three of those days you need to find time to exercise.  Start slow with three days for exercise and exercise 15 to 30 minutes each of those days. Now, you must continue this for at least two months, because you are trying to make it a habit. Once it becomes a habit, you have successfully kept your resolution.

Now you can start on something else.  Remember don’t make it an activity or change, that has to be done every single minute of every single day. Incorporate your family and friends to help you stay on track. Start small and work your way up…one success after another success.

Change is never easy for any of us, much less if we have family obligations too.  Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day or get it all wrong.  The word fun should be your buzz word, not frustration!

My resolution is to start back exercising and eating right.  My body is demanding it!  At fifty, every part of me has surrendered to gravity and my energy level is E for exhaustion. This will not be an easy task and I will blog from time to time on my progress.  Because it is reassuring to know someone else is human too.

Grace and Blessings to You!

Say your prayers for you and me!

Here is a story to inspire you.

Time and Work

These past months have flown by and our family has begun its new journey.  We are finally settled into a Texas life.  If I could bring my grandchildren to live here, then life would be perfect!  But their lives are back in North Carolina.

Texas surprised me.  The state is all about God, Texas, and USA.  They are proud to show it, too.  Where we are, just outside of Houston, is an area that supports new businesses and women owned businesses.  I can see why the economy here, did not take as big a hit as the rest of the country did these past years.

I also noticed that there are a lot of Christian authors, pastors, and religious leaders here in Texas.  Maybe that means my book, The Tent Maker, will finally start to see some decent sales.  Positivity is the electricity of Texas!

These past six months I have been building a website, http://www.thetentmaker.org. Mostly honing it over and over again. It will always be a work in progress, type of site.  The site is about raising Christian kids, parents, and family.  I hope to one day have others to write for the site.  Right now being webmaster, author, artist, and janitor, is daunting.  Especially since,  I can write and rewrite, and write and rewrite, when it comes to stories or articles.

Take your time in life and remember to pray!
