I enjoyed my day off from work today. It seems as if it went by too quickly. I accomplished some things I wanted to get done, but there are still others. I can see I will need to get more proficient in listing my goals for my days off and working more to fulfill them. I will have to get back to using lists to work on that.
Meanwhile, it was a great sunny day, and fairly pleasant weather outside. Whenever I walk the sidewalk from the driveway to the front door I pass by weeds growing in my front walkway area. They are getting so big, they are actually blooming flowers now. That's one more of those little things that needs to be done, that is yet left to be completed. My goal later this week is to get those weeds pulled before they go to seed! Actually I had been putting off any gardening tasks till it wasn't quite so muggy and hot outside. Thankfully the climate is more to my liking now with a bit of cooler weather.
I was thinking about dreams and hopes today. I have learned through past experience that it is a good thing to set your mind on hopes and dreams, to look forward to a future that holds a brighter, encouraging aspect to work toward, and to look forward to. I've long thought, and said to others, we can have anything in this world that we want if we just pace ourselves. For me this an encouraging way to set the stage for your future. It establishes a goal to work toward. It helps me to delineate what is important to you and cut through the haze of other nonsense that goes on in life. Sometimes it doesn't always mean that is the future you get. Sometimes dreams change and morph into other dreams and desires. That's okay. I'm the type of person who needs something to look forward to everyday. It is good for me to visualize my goals, dreams and hopes. How about you? Do you think the same way? Do you have a hope to look forward to, or a dream to work for?
