Mid Week Check In

I started the week, feeling behind in most aspects of my life. On day 3 of the New Year, I wrote about feeling like I was already slacking on my goals and afraid of not making any head way. As prayed for, God answered my prayers, helping me to pull my head out of my funk and get back into a far more productive and creative mindset.

After writing and posting the blog Monday morning, I did get out for a run, albeit, not a good one. All that mattered though was simply that I had gotten out of the house and that my feet were hitting the pavement. Distance, time, breathing patterns were all irrelevant as I simply strode towards the goal of getting in 4 runs this week.

By the end of the day, not only had I met that goal, but also knocked out the goal of having 3 blog posts ready to go for the week, in the event that I didn’t get a chance to sit down and write any more. Additionally, I helped Jeff get a major editing project done for his blog, tackled some chores and called it a day, feeling like I’d dug myself out of the hole.

Starting the week off with a quite, yet productive Monday certainly helped. Tuesday was a blur, being back at work for the first time in two weeks, followed by dinner with my girl friends, and the random emotional punch to the gut.  Even with all that I did begin to make some strides in figuring out my Word Press page and what I want that to look and feel like. I closed out the day, with a Just Give Me Jesus, and knew that it was all going to work out just fine.

Yesterday, I made even more headway in figuring out what wordpress theme I want to use (standard) and did more research on how to make this blogging outlet something relevant and substantial for those of you who are bothering to read it. Again, I saw the benefits of starting the day early, with a four mile run, as I was focused and intentional with how I spent my time throughout the day.  Progress, even in baby steps, is all that matters at this point.

Despite the runny nose, post nasal drip, headache, stuffy head feeling that I have going on, I really do feel like I’ve had a productive week. I feel like I’m getting somewhere, accomplishing something, working hard to pursue a goal, several in fact. Again, I don’t know where this is going, but I hope you’ll stick around and watch as God reveals his divine plan as I believe it will be good. Very good!
