Ever have one of those days where you just decide to almost recklessly make decisions because you feel like any decision you make will pan out well? I did. It’s amazing to feel like I could jump into anything and be successful… But I know better than to make rash choices just because I have a good day. In any cause, days like this feel fun.
** Special Guest: Adam Cook **
I have been working on breaking down tasks into smaller parts so that I can make progress little by little rather than being overwhelmed by large goals.
Adam and I had a planning meeting for a department we’re involved in at church and I was kinda nervous. We serve with some great friends so that wasn’t an issue, but I was sharing some ideas I had, which made me nervous. Its been a long time since I was excited about sharing creative plans and I didn’t want to sound stupid. I’m grateful for boldness, even if I stuttered a little. I’m also grateful for awesome, patient people to serve with!
This is a DD another day in the making: rearranging our living room. My amazing in-laws MADE this beautiful bookshelf for Adam and I for Christmas and we finally were able to get it to the house! Since we got it in we’ve moved it around, put stuff on it, moved it a little more, and then we just plain admired it. We are over the moon about being able to have more of our books out AND we have a place for our DVDs.
The season has finally changed at Casa de Cook! Christmas stuff is all sorted out and put in its proper place. To celebrate Adam rearranged to living room and we have crazy amounts of space!! Photos to come.
[I’ve really wanted a Valentine’s Day wreath. Adam really wanted to take me on a date. I was feeling too tired for a date. He was still set on taking me out. I haggled with him and got this wreath instead of a date. It was awesome.]
People often say “dream big” or “shoot for the moon”. Today I got to spend the day with my other half planning for our “regular” size dreams. It’s important to believe for the big things: home, spouse, education, health, but it’s important to believe for the little things: a couch that suits our living room, a new modern looking bed frame, picture frames, or rugs. Adam and I are now gonna make a plan to reach these little dreams.
I’m not sure who is overcoming who in the ongoing saga between my workouts and I. Yesterday I was so tired I fell asleep before posting my DD! Tonight I was so sore and tired I didn’t think I could finish the intense 22 minutes. These sound like I’m losing the battle, but I DID finish both workouts without stopping and I’ll tell you, that counts as a victory! Progress may not be noticeable, but I’m making it every workout!
