Ok, so I was inspired by a blogger I follow that has created a challenge and invited others to join him at www.danoah.com (Single Dad Laughing). I thought what a great idea since I have really felt that I needed a change in my life for some time now.
First I started with a list of things I wanted to change. I don’t believe that I can change everything in 30 days but this is a great beginning of things I just have been telling myself for quite some time now.
But when should I start? My procrastination kicked in. Probably at the beginning of the month, no, how about at the beginning of the week?
No, you know what? I am going to start today. Today is Day 1 for me September 10th.
Work has been good today. No fire drills or issues to solve. And for weeks I have been looking for a small part time job to supplement my income and one finally came through for me this evening. Now my weekends will be full but at least I will be able to sleep at night knowing that I will be spending less and making a little bit more to assist my daughter and I.
I actually made the attempt to drink more water today but honestly a several glasses was much more than I was drinking and I feel better already.
My daughter and I didn’t play a game tonight, but I made sure that I took time just for her to laugh about our day and a few items we saw on Instagram. Social Media can be a fun thing if you don’t take it so seriously.
Megan said that dinner was the best she had but I think it was only because she was so hungry as most growing teenagers are.
All and all, I had a great first day, I was busy and actually accomplished quite a lot. There’s a big difference between busy and accomplishing your tasks.
So good night my friends, I am going to snuggle with my daughter on the couch and watch some television before the night ends.
