I probably can’t remember the last time I posted to the blog 3 days in a row, let alone 31 days. In. A. Row. For the entire month of October I am taking on the fun and exciting challenge of joining some of my favorite bloggers for 31 days of…well, LOTS of stuff! So every day this month I will be posting about…
- a movement toward a goal or to a further or higher stage
- advancement in general
- growth or development; continuous improvement
- the development of an individual or society in a direction considered more beneficial than and superior to the previous level
- forward or onward movement
- the forward course of action, events, time, etc.
- an official journey or tour
Life is Crazy Beautiful is broken down into 4 general categories: Living & Learning, Loving & Serving, Cooking & Eating, Decorating & DIY. I don’t know about you, but I have goals for improving, growing or changing in all of these areas of life! You’ve probably heard the question “How do you eat an elephant?” and it’s corresponding answer “One bite at a time!”. That’s how it is with good goals, they should be big enough to be worth the effort and result in a great reward but they need to be accomplished one step at a time. The important thing is to keep moving forward!
So, I hope you’ll join me for this wild ride…one baby step at a time. I’ll be trying new recipes and diy projects, organizing & decorating and hopefully learning and growing in my personal, family & spiritual life, too! Oh, and there WILL be giveaways!! I’d love to hear about progress you are making in achieving your personal goals, so I hope you’ll comment and even leave a link to your blog post which relates to the day’s subject.
Contact me if you need help with some code for a 31 Days of Progress Button on your own site!
I’ll close with some quotes as well as a great song we can use to inspire us in this adventure…
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.
Sir Winston Churchill
Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still.
My own experience and development deepen everyday my conviction that our moral progress may be measured by the degree in which we sympathize with individual suffering and individual joy.
…and, from the fortune cookie my daughter brought me today after going out for Chinese with her dad…
Use your abilities at this time to stay focused on your goal. You will succeed.
