What to Say?

I've done it - I signed up for the A to Z Blogging Challenge of 2015. I've done this before, and really enjoyed it. I did not do it last year since I was taking a class and was afraid I wouldn't have enough time.

This year I admit I am nervous. I'm currently in a writing/blogging dry spot (though I have been reading a lot!) and have no idea what I will write about. But I've discovered that sometimes making a commitment is the way to jump start yourself.

The creator of the A to Z Challenge has been a great blogging friend/supporter to me through the past few years. If you like to write, you should get to know him. In fact, this challenge is how I've found a lot of great bloggers and people who will support you in your writing of anything!

What will I write? I don't know. But I have until April to decide, and I will. In the meantime, I leave you with this thought.

Under-Appreciated Tuesday

Have you ever noticed that Tuesday doesn't get a lot of attention? Mondays everyone is all about getting back to work, or Monday Blues, or even Rainy Days and Mondays. Wednesday is "hump" day which the GEICO commercials have really capitalized on. Thursday means it's almost the weekend and Friday is TGIF and as soon as we get off work - BAM, it's the weekend! Saturday and Sunday get all the glory and then there's plain old Tuesday.

I like Tuesday though. It seems that's when a lot gets done. You've had Monday to get over the weekend and the next weekend is too far away to be distracting.

Tuesday - I think it is the most productive day of the week and sorely under-appreciated.

What I need is not a month of Sundays but a week of Tuesdays.

What's your best day of the week?

It's Over . . .

It's over - Christmas and my winter break that is. The lights are put away, the nativities have been wrapped in protective wrap, the tree has been hauled away, the kids have gone back to their lives, and I go back to work in about an hour.

It was a great break, I slept late almost every day, read a book, finally finished Burn Notice (it's taken me about three years on Netflix), went to the movies (The Hobbit and Into the Woods), celebrated my birthday, and had lots of family time.

What happens now? There's the usual January activities. Work on taxes, file the FAFSA, and sell Girl Scout cookies. Then there's the other common January focus. Lose weight, exercise more, try something new, etcetera. All of these are good and I intend to do all of them.

But most importantly? I intend to enjoy every day, embrace the moment, and have my eyes open for the opportunities that surround me. I realize that little by little I've shifted more toward the glass half empty view and I want to go back to a glass half full view.

It's a good day - enjoy!
