Today I Pledge

Friday, December 4, 2009

I have noticed some bad habits in me lately. I see no need to wait for the New Year to start a resolution for creating a new groove in these areas.

*So today, I am pledging that I will get back into the routine of giving Cayman her homeopathic drops three times a day. (I've been slipping on that in the last week, and lately she's been getting them only once a day).

*Today, I am pledging that I will finish all my open work projects before I start another one. (Currently, I have 5 started).

*Today, I am pledging that I will go to bed at an acceptable hour. (I have been staying up way too late).

*Today, I am pledging that I will stop loathing my kitchen for all of its severely broken down, out dated features and that includes ceasing all physical attacks against my oven door. And if it means I have to take the light bulb out of the oven so I will stop being visually reminded that the stinkin' door will not shut, than so be it. I will just be grateful that I have a kitchen of my own.

I particularly loved your last pledge because in it is the key to happines; being happy and content with what you have.

It is so easy to always think of what we want, or how life will be perfect once...._____(fill in the blank), but when we have that mind set, we can never be happy because there will always be something more that we are waiting for.

So hooray for your pledges, and may the lightbulb glow bright in your oven! :)

Good for you! I have to make resolutions like these sometimes too. My problem is, I have to make them at least once a month. :)

Hmmm, maybe you should just pick say...2 of those to start with....you are being kind of hard on yourself!!! If I could just get myself to bed at an 'acceptable' hour I would be happy. Good luck....you will have a head start on everyone else who are waiting for the new year!!
