IWSG: New Beginnings
The first Wednesday of the month is IWSG! For more information visit: http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/p/the-insecure-writers-support-group.html
So ... did you make resolutions yesterday? Scroll down to see mine. The first item on the list is "to remain calm and enjoy the beauty of each day."
This may seem obvious to many of you or even unnecessary to list; however, for me, there has been so much chaos in the last six to twelve months of my life, my everyday to-do lists have been ridiculous. I find it highly stressful when there is more to accomplish than 24 hours will allow. As a result, I have added to my everyday to-do list (as the first item) "remain calm." I figure if I can at least accomplish that, the day will be much better.
Also, I've been reading a book about the benefits of vitamin B-12 (review to come soon). I think when we eat right and put the proper nutrients and vitamins into our bodies, we are able to more naturally remain calm, have more energy, and be able to accomplish the necessary things on our to-do list.
And on a spiritual note, I pray each morning that my path will be guided. I know it is impossible to finish everything on my to-do list in one day. So I ask God that He will guide my path to help me accomplish the most important things that day - whatever those things may be - on my list or not.
Whatever might be on your to-do list today, I hope that you find peace, remain calm, and enjoy the beauty of the day.
I look forward to spending 2013 with you!
What's on your list today?
