It’s Been Quiet around Here

It’s Been Quiet around Here

Color 03I know it has been awhile since I have posted. Not really sure why except maybe I haven’t known what to say, which as my friends and family know, is shocking.

This weekend has been quiet. The older boys are gone (one to camp and two to their moms) and the youngest boy is in Hawaii!  Knowing that this weekend was coming, I purposely didn’t book any appointments, didn’t drive anywhere, and chose to take it easy…I mean…totally easy…as in, not doing much of anything but sleep in, cook a little, read a book or two and watch a little baseball.

When not doing much, and frankly finally taking a break from the busy life I lead, it gave me some time to think, reflect, and do some planning for the next quarter of my life (meaning 3 months) and take assessment of the past quarter.

A lot of good has happened this past quarter. The boys did well in school, every one was mostly healthy, and the work that I do has grown nicely.

I have been listenting to Lou Tice (again) as I drive around this great community and realized how nice and important it is to take time to reflect on the past and to set some fresh goals for the future. Lou talks about not only goal-setting but really does an excellent job of communicating the science of how our brains work. The subconscious is a powerful ally or enemy, depending on what it is you meditate on. I may explore this in a later piece of writing in a deepr way but in the meantime, my refresher takeaway was simply that it is important to write things down. Goals, dreams, thoughts, ideas, and so on. When you do that, some marvelous things begin to happen and in a nutshell, our brains are picking up what we are putting down.  When I assessed what I had been writing, really, NOT writing, I realized that I needed to begin to write again, mostly because it is healthy and seems to begood for me personally.  Whether it is this blog or my journal, or even 3 x 5 note cards, it is nice to be reminded why it is so important for me to continue to write.
