Good morning, Mintdom!

I have Toastmasters this morning so this will be short.  I had a GREAT retreat yesterday.  I really needed to have a day to reflect and take stock.  I did not get everything done that was on my agenda, and that is totally fine with me.  It shows me that next time, I need a weekend!  lol I will do another one in November.  One of the things that I decided is that I am a bit overcommitted.  I am going to give up a couple of my activities – now I just need to let them know, which is the difficult part.  No one is indispensable though, so I am sure that those groups will get along just fine without me!  LOL I am keeping my Toastmasters obligation (need it for when I am famous one day LOL), Team Networks (will not give up the Marty ((Meeting and a Party)), the Communications Committee for my neighborhood, and of course what I call the ALC (Agent Leadership Council) Special Events Committee (I love it).  Oh, and of course, I am keeping Mintdom and I think that I will keep my job too!  LOL!

I am committing to doing at least 6,000 steps a day for the rest of the month.  I need to push myself a little harder.  I can do it.  If we are supposed to do 10,000 steps a day, I can at least do 6,000.  November, I will bump it up to 8,000.  That is my plan – so it be said – so it be done!

“For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.” -Lily Tomlin

I am agreeing with Ms. Tomlin.  I feel so much better after my retreat.  I tend to run and run, and when I get in the weeds, my solution is to run harder.  I learned from this weekend, that what I really need to is slow down occasionally.  Remember the story of the Tortoise and the Hare http://tinyurl.com/TortoiseHare.  I am working on being more of the hare!

AffirMINTion:  I slow down in order to win the race!

Make it a GREAT hare day, IF you choose to.

Life is good!

  1. Perhaps we need to buy stock in the pedometer industry! I as well as so many others who follow Mintdom are wearing them! I think you need to open an new business and sell Mintdometers! Thanks for setting the trend Deb! xoxox 5436 steps today.
