Hurdle #1

Hurdle number one is tomorrow. There is a work celebration that I am coordinating and it's got my trousers in a twist. By tomorrow at 4pm, it will be over. One hurdle jumped with more to come. I'm just taking them one at a time and I am allowing myself to stress over them far too much.

Then there are other events this week and weekend - the next hurdles in the race to Puerto Rico.

The thing I loved about yesterday was for one brief moment I thought first and acted second. It was a small victory, but a victory all the same.

Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Might as well jump.



  1. Events, the race to Puerto Rico - sounds like NASCAR!

    Take one hurdle at a time snd remember, getting caught up on one doesn't ruin the race - get to the next one!

  2. Hi Roxie! I loved your victory about thinking first and acting second! Fantastic! A friend in AA talks about how he used to operate by "ready, fire, aim"! Now it's "ready, aim, fire". That's just what you're talking about. I need to read back a little to see what Puerto Rico is about, but I'm sure you'll be up to the challenge!

  3. I am usually a thinker THEN a do-er. Though I have been forcing myself to do, then think so I can get more used to the way the real world works.

    Puerto Rico, huh?

  4. One small victory at a time leads to the next. Before you know it, it's a habit. :)

  5. I, too, love your victory...and wish I could do that more often (or ever, ha!).

  6. I used to mouth off and regret it later....now I shut my mouth, about have a heart attack, vent within' and then feel very superior and mature later lol.
    Great job on that front,
    Thanks for the comment...you are right, it is one day in what I hope to be a loooooong life.

  7. That link was hilarious.

    Thinking first and acting second...that's sounds so easy but is really so hard. Congrats on actually doing it. :)

  8. Small victories are great; I would love to be able to think first and act second. Or think first and then not speak!


We'll try this for a while.
