Daily Disciplines: Day One Hundred Forty Six

We looked at a house on Saturday and went back today but that’s brought out a lot of feels for me. Can I commit? Are we ready? Can I live with this? Is it okay if it’s not perfect? Is this house everything I didn’t know I wanted?!? I talk though my problems to reach the best solution and I need people around me willing to work with me. Thank God for the good support system with whom I can work through these questions!

[There are some amazing pros to this house and these flowers might have just convinced me…]

Daily Disciplines: Day One Hundred Forty Three

To quote one of my favorite books: “Can’t go over it. Can’t go under it. Gotta go through it.”. I can’t skip over lessons, and I can’t just try to lay low. I’ve got to embrace the journey no matter how ugly it gets.

[Btw, that book I just quoted is “We’re Going On a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury. Profound stuff is in them children’s books.]

[Also, Adam and I went and looked at another house. I’m really not sure where to put my feelings about it. I both love and hate it… The biggest question I need to ask myself is “Can I live with this?”. Is it something I hate so much I cannot tolerate it…]

Daily Disciplines: Day One Hundred Forty Two

Adam and I have been enjoying the challenge of doing our planks every night, so we’ve come up with something for next month. We’re going to do a push-up challenge set up in the same way as our current challenge. Having health goals has been tough for me, but this is a start!

[I finally got some plants for my window at work! I adopted the pink flowered plant from my friend who is out off the office to have her baby!]

Daily Disciplines: Day One Hundred Forty

I have now joined the ranks of people who’ve locked their keys in the car. This certainly was a learning moment, but more than that it was a check up moment. How much have I truly grown? How will I truly act when I make a silly mistake? What kind of woman is all the hard work really shaping me to be? I’m proud to say I didn’t take myself too seriously and laughed. I thought of a solution quickly and calmly. I used my community of people for help and support. In a nutshell, I didn’t freak out. I feel like in this check up I did well…minus the keys having been locked in the car of course!
