What is one goal you can achieve before the month is over to better yourself?
Hello all you buttercups!
Today is a special day. Today is the day a precious little baby was born to me 18 years ago. 18 years old?!? Oh my. Time does fly. To celebrate I’m making steak, with mash potatoes and broccoli. I’m still going to make him a cake too. This year will increase his independence more & hopefully he can practice everything I’ve taught him to be a good citizen of the community. I can only imagine how stressed my mom was when I started driving on my own. It was the taste of freedom like no other, attached with friends riding along to go down to the shore for the day, hanging out in Philly etc. Right now we are looking at cars. It will be so nice when my son can drive so we won’t need Uber to take us to doctor appointments.
One thing I remind myself, especially this month, is to take my time. What I mean by this is to not feel like I need to complete everything on my to do list. If my knee swells up or starts hurting, it’s ok to just stop and rest my knee for the remainder of the day. Some days I don’t do anything on my list & I shouldn’t feel guilty if I do. It’s ok to go in my own pace. The last thing I need is to worsen my condition. My son already does a lot around the house & is extremely helpful. So, to better myself, I’m just reminding myself to take my time. I’m not used to that as I am the type of person who gets things done in a certain time frame. That’s why my supervisor liked me. I always got things done & had my work completed, but I’m at a point where I need to surrender to what my body says and that’s ok.
We’re all trying to better ourselves in some shape or form.
No one should strive for perfection. Just strive to be excellent!
