2018: Page 1

I think I may stick primarily with the thoughts and lessons from each day this year.  Or maybe this format is just for today because I’m still tired. 🙂

Some reflections and/or lessons from the day:

  • I can still keep going for 20 hours straight when needed, but rest has never been more welcomed than after a long day.
  • When I’m doing what God has called and created me to do, the days don’t seem nearly as long as the hours make them sound.
  • A new year is probably more symbolic than anything else, but sometimes we need the symbolism to motivate us to make the fresh start that is needed.
  • Spending the first half hour of the new year praying with others is a pretty good way to start the year.
  • A high temperature for the day that doesn’t reach double-digits is not very effective in enticing me to leave the house.
  • Spending a cold winter day going through photos from last summer is a good way to kindle a flame under the vacation planning region of my mind. 🙂
  • Sometimes we hold onto things that are not very useful because it seems easier than replacing them with something new which often requires us to learn a new way of doing things.
  • Today’s photo from last summer is a reminder that vacations are both relaxing and necessary.

  1. Vacations used to be an event that families did together to create shared memories. Now days people go off without the kids to “get away”. I rather like the old way of doing things!

    • I grew up with the “old way” of vacations being about family memories and that continues to be my approach to it. I always love it when I see people who are able to plan multi-generational family vacations.
