Today I didn’t have an overly eager list of things to get done.  I just wanted to start getting my Thanksgiving grocery list together & planned, do some writing and get my exercise workout in.  I had an unusual amount of interruptions to this process though and saw my free time dwindling away.  Instead of just saying “Screw it, forget writing and working out,” I decided to try a different approach and set it in my mind that I was going to write & exercise no matter what.  I didn’t let the little things knock me off balance.  I persevered and did indeed write a short story for my husband, went to the gym and did my work out and now am in fact writing a short blog as well.  Yeah me!  Go Deana!  Ha ha.

And I still have some day left to boot!  I’m proud of this accomplishment.  It’s just one day, but that’s a start in the right direction.  I just have to come to terms with the fact that life is indeed full of little interruptions to our set schedules no matter how well I try to plan.  Instead of just giving up on the plan, I’m just going to go with the flow and make myself still do things for myself rather than living my life all for others.  After all, I can’t be much good for others if I’m not taking care of myself, right?  Exercise  is the physical part that I need and Writing is the mental part so I am just going to make myself do them.  Let’s see where this road takes me.

That’s the beauty in my life today.  If I’m on the wrong road, I just need to make my own detour to get back on track.  It’s not rocket science so I should be able to do it!
