I was reading two blogs entitled Whatever and Michelle my Belle yesterday. I was inspired and decided to go ahead and made a list of things, which I want to accomplish before I turn age 41.

Inspirational Reading

This morning I was reading one of my favorite blogs entitled Courage to be You. I added that button on a new page, which I created. It’s entitled Blogs that I enjoy reading.

Yesterday was a perfect example, which I faced in that situation. I had a couple of Virtual Meeting via gotomeeting. One with Creative Memories and other one with UFirst. After these Virtual Meetings were done, I sat down on a couch and sorted out bills while we were watching a movie called Kung Fu Panda. Somehow we fell slept. I was not even finished with bills.

Then we watched that movie again. Still I fell asleep. I felt that I had low self-esteem since it was not a productive day for both of us. Actually I was going to take Nolan out for bicycling at Greenlake located in Seattle while I go for a walk, but I was not in mood to drive that far. It is only 20 minutes drive. I felt blah and had no energy!

Of course he and I spent numbers of hours playing games on the computer such as Restaurant City, Yokville, Farmville, and Farm Town, and TV yesterday. Sigh…

Sometimes I lack my motivation in order to keep my home and yard neat and attractive. Sometimes I feel that everybody is way ahead of me by keeping their houses and yards tidying up and well taken care of.

That also include my variety of home businesses I’m in. Sometimes I get a chance to read and study materials. Sometimes I don’t due to too many on my plate, which I need to take care of. Sometimes I feel quite confused with which priorities I need to accomplish. Sometimes it is best that I write down a list of tasks that I need to accomplish in my appointment book, so that way I don’t get lost based on what I am supposed to do.

That post entitled Courage to be YOU was an inspiring posting for me to read. Following questions and a comment are:

Do you ever secretly envy the women who seem to have it all together?

Do you quietly long to “find yourself” and “have balance” but you fear you missed the memo on how to juggle an overwhelming list of priorities?

All the choices for how to spend our time every day can be downright overwhelming.

In regards with this posting, there is no way I can please my friends when they enter my property and my home. I try my best to keep up with my home, yard, and my home businesses.

The important thing is that I continue to pray for God’s guidance to be with me, so that way I can gain my motivation to finish up on what I need to do. And have his spirit to be with me, so I can gain my courage and maintain positive thoughts based on what I can do to accomplish my tasks.
