Thank you for checking in with me. I have been so busy! Doing what you may ask. Well I have made up my mind to remind myself that I am so glad to be here. I intend to achieve my goals aims and ambitions. How am I going to do that you may ask! Well I have a plan of action.
The first thing I did was read several motivational books and I watched The Secret and from my research, I decided that I have to start enjoying my life and be glad that I am here. I have to remind myself that I am here to live my life and face whatever challenges that come my way.
As a busy parent, with very challenging and demanding children it is a real challenge to stay on task and get things done. So I said to myself, you have to stop procrastinating and start living the life you want to live, so that you have no regrets and smile when you reflect on the wonderful experiences you have had.
I want to motivate you to do the same. I want to share with you what I have been doing so that you know, what and how I have overcome challenges and hurdles.
My story is a simply one. I hope that you will see that you too can live the life you want to live.
I decided I would have to come up with a plan, so that it would be clear in my mind what I want and I would actually think about why I want it. So part of the plan was to make a list of things I want to do. After that I made notes on what I would need to do to implement the things on my list.
Once I made my list, I evaluated and made a few changes and felt very pleased.
My list was looking good, so I gave each thing a rough time guide and a note on how much time commitment would be necessary.
The result was, that I have had a very fruitful and effective week. So here are my tips for you:
Be glad you are here, and decide what you want to achieve, write it down, think about how and when you are going to do it and the most important part just do it.
Let me know how your week is and what you achieve on your list.
I managed to run another 5km and I am 1 minute faster because I have been training consistently. I managed to make time to listen to my children read daily and ask comprehension questions about the text we read. I also made fresh bread with my children on Sunday and used this as a teaching opportunity, so they were learning about measurement and change of state. I also managed to take the children to the park and had fun. I managed to write that book I have always wanted to write and I hope that you are inspired to do something you have always wanted to do to.
Thanks to all of you that have started running and are enjoying it as much as I do. It is challenging but so worthwhile especially when your stamina and strength starts to kick in and you notice it is easier to keep going. So remember, even if it is challenging at first, know that it will get easier and it will be so rewarding for yourself and for those who love you seeing you at your happiest and best. So what ever it is that you have been thinking about doing, start it as soon as you can. You will be glad that you have started and an amazing thing will happen, you will have more energy and time because you feel so full of life.
I look forward to you sharing your experiences. Let me know what you did, and how much you enjoyed it. Your children will love seeing you bright and happy, and it will have a positive impact on them too.
Good luck to us all. Let us remain positive and concentrate on achieving our goals, and let us aim high for ourselves, friends and family.
