3 in 30: April {week 2}

April's goals...
1. Write and mail someone a letter/card each week.
2. Make a new recipe at least once a week.
3. Part 2 of Proverbs 31...verses 17 & 27
"She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks...She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness."

*Card written, stamped, and in the "outgoing" box for the post office!!!  
(I'm even surprised at this one...I have several cards around the house for birthdays and holidays that were purchased with great intentions that never get sent).
*New recipe made (literally made up by little ol' me).  I was inspired by an ice cream pie I had at Sam and Rosco's italian restaurant in Douglasville.  I made my own recipe for what I call "Turtle Pie" and it turned out delicious.  I'm thinking that I'll switch things up again one day and make it a "S'more Pie" next time.

*Working vigorously to change my attitude about working vigorously. :)  What I mean by that is that, for me, it's not just doing a task, but it's more about owning the task and having a good attitude about having to do the task.  It's also about trying not to procrastinate.  (Remember how my name was found beside "night owl" in the dictionary, well, my name's often found beside this word as well). :)  I like working on this goal, because, it's bringing scripture to my mind often during my days when I am deciding on which I should do first.  I'd give myself about a 5 out of 10 on this goal.  Always room for improvement in this department.
Have a blessed weekend and know week 3 is just ahead!


  1. Great job with your goals, and owning the areas you need work in!

  2. What a great way to work on your goals! Glad to see I am not the only face shining in the "Night Owl Procrastinator" yearbook{{{grin}}} It is HARD work just changing old habits, I give you an "A" for NOT giving up/in! I'm with ya on the attitude issue...I try to remember to have a happy heart and to realize it IS for the Lord. Some days are easy peasy....and some AIN"T!!
    Happy Friday :)

  3. Love trying new recipes! That pie looks absolutely divine!! :)

    Great job on your goals!

  4. Great job on your goals! Woohoo!! That pie looks very yummy :)

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
