Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

I find that when I try to do too much at a time, I get overwhelmed and then do nothing at all. I'm trying the baby steps now, hoping it will help me stay motivated.
Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday!

The spices came in handy. We made Chili and Beans today. Slow cooked in the crockpot, and had it for dinner. emoticon
