This week I am being inspired...may I share with you what I am learning?
I have always wanted to attend but alas our school has always
started that week and I never wanted to miss the first day of school with the kids.
These are some that I did not choose for various reasons:)
*Square Foot Gardening
(my strawberries & bell peppers already died)
*Developing Strength to overcome Life's Challenges
(I simply eat chocolate)
*Legal Ethics in Business Transactions
(my dad taught us that taking so much as a pencil from work was stealing)
*Ending Carbohydrate cravings
(I am on vacation and didn't want to hear this now)
*Making the Old testament come Alive
(I woke up at 5:30 for a whole year to learn this in Seminary)
*How all Addictions "Hijack" the Brain
(I am happy with my chocolate hijacker!)
*Marriage-Building Love that Lasts
(29 years and I still believe in the phrase for better or for worse)
Influencing a Change of Heart
without the Use of Criticism(especially in marriage)
Criticism is more likely to kill the desire for change than to inspire it.
We are modeling marriage to our children and therefore our grandchildren.
Humility trumps communication skills!
spouse in that way produces growth and change in them:)
And that is the miracle we are all hoping for...
p.s. they are hoping the same thing in us:)
|I sent my hubby this picture with a text "Going to this class is like me giving you flowers!"|
I took a great deal of comfort to see that this class was full!
Here are my notes...
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can......
Life is a symphony and you are the composer, orchestrator, director, and performer.
*Physically taking care of yourself
*Energy creating thoughts-positive
*Spiritual renewal-top priority
Don't get bitten by A.N.T.S.
Automatic Negative ThoughtS
Things to increase our energy
*There is power in apologies-especially in marriage
*Novel experiences create energy and slow time down
I have been with my grandbaby all week and she has so much energy because life is so new and interesting to her!
*Using your gifts to bless others
*Organizing your life into Must, Should, Nice to do, Can be done anytime
Seek for quality time in the crossroads of the day--meal times, bedtime, going and coming from the home.
Bundling is a wonderful concept of doing 2 things in Harmony such as taking a walk with your spouse
(exercise AND bonding time.
(This should not be confused with my extreme multi tasking-doing 15 things at once and feeling fragmented and stressed!
*Reduce activities okay...laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, pulling weeds...:)
*Let go of material things (I love making a goodwill run-it feels so good!)
*Outsource I am always in the market for a pool and yard guy--hubby is not:(
*Focus on priorities
*Learn how to say no kindly
I have MUCH to do to organize, simplify, and focus on priorities to find peace in my busy life!... Isn't that ironic:)
