Day 60

Today is the last day of the blog. At first I was thinking about having it be a 30 day, then a 45 day, but now that there are less than five people a day checking it, I definitely think it's time to be done at 60.

So today's challenge is to go back to the day where the challenge made the biggest impact on you and repeat it. Or go back and do the whole thing again.

Thanks for participating in this journey!

Day 59

Plan something fun. Get an idea for something to look forward to. I may have asked you to do this before, but if I have, do it again. :-)

We're starting to plan a summer trip to the DC area... it's nice to have something to look forward to!

Day 58

Think of a funny song from your past that always makes you laugh. Then sing it to one of your kids. Sing out loud. Sing out strong. Sing of good things, not bad... sing of happy, not sad...

woops, sorry, a tangent.

Anyway, a couple of my favorites to sing to my kids are "If you want my body and you think I'm sexy come on baby let me know" and "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me."

Sing it to them. Either it will get a laugh or they will leave the room, and depending on the day, either of those could be a plus!

Day 57

Think about a hymn or a song that has been a constant in your life for years. Examples for me include Great is Thy Faithfulness and Now Thank We All Our God. Keep those in mind as you go through your day.

Day 56

The Revised Serenity Prayer:

Lord, give me the serenity
to accept the people I cannot change
the courage to change the person I can
and the wisdom to know it's me.


Day 55

Look into the eyes of someone you love and smile at them. When they smile back enjoy being smiled at!!!

Day 54

The orthodox church recommends continually saying the "Jesus prayer" all day long, again and again. Try saying it over and over today and see if it makes a difference in your life.

"Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me a sinner."

Day 52

Listen. Just take a minute and listen. Listen to nature. Listen to your soul... or your body... or to God. But listen. You might learn something.

Day 51

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

Mother Teresa

Think of one small thing that you are faithful in and how that is the foundation for your strength.

Day 50

Today is a day to feel a sense of accomplishment.

Take five minutes to make a list of things you are going to do today. Put things on there that are obviously. Like "go to the bathroom." Put it on there several times. Put your meals on there -- not just preparing them, but eating them. Every little thing you do should go on the list.

Then spend the day crossing them off the list. It will feel SO good to get so much done. And you may realize that even on days when you don't feel like you've done much, you actually have accomplished a lot!

A Question

Obviously the past couple days I haven't posted and I'm wondering if the blog has run it's course. So I'm going to ask you what you think?

Should I keep going? How important has it been to you? Did you notice that I missed the past couple days?

let me know....

Day 49

Express appreciation to the person who you least remember to say thank you to -- your spouse, one of your kids, a parent, a coworker, or a friend.... thank them either for something specific or just for being a part of your life.

Day 48

Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
