Transformation Tuesday, July 12th

First off, let me apologize that it has been so long.  Secondly, I just want to see if anyone else has experienced this as well.  For some time, I have been feeling an urging to be a better me.  I have been reminded of hobbies that I used to enjoy and things my Nanny did (sewing, canning and such) and just the way she was when I was younger.  I know she was raised in a different time than I, but even when she and my grandfather weren't in agreement, she still respected him as the head of the household.  To that end, I have been working on ways that I can be a better me.

I have recently been reading Darlene Faye Schacht's The Good Wife's Guide: Embracing Your Role as a Help Meet.  If you are interested, she also has a blog called Time-Warp Wife.  I will be honest, while there are many things that I will not be implementing as I am not a stay at home mom, I have found several things that I am going to try to implement slowly.  One of which is adding scriptures in places that I will see them.  I am also going to try to complete my tasks with more joy.

This may not have been the transformation that you were expecting and yes, I am still on my weight loss journey, I think that this transformation will ultimately assist in my weight loss as well.  What are you working on transforming?

  1. I actually have put a lot of thought into that lately. I've tried to focus more on things I enjoy doing just for the sake of doing them, like reading or wandering around garden centers, things that aren't items on a to-do list or things I need to do or things with a deadline. I used to sew and loved it, and I'm trying to figure out how to fit a sewing table somewhere in our house. Our weight loss journeys are so tied to our emotions, so all of it is relevant and part of the same cloth.

  2. Honestly my finances is what I'm focusing on. I have gotten into the habit of robbing Peter to pay Paul that now I have a little financial stability, I can't remember how to use the money wisely and make it make money for me. So I'm learning how to invest in stocks and remove unnecessary debt and credit. I feel like I'm back in college with all the books and information I'm downloading in my brain and trying to use. I can't fail because it will put me back into a financial crunch that I was brought out of by chance. Financial stability will ease so much stress and allow me to pursue other goals as far as my writing and travels are concerned.
