On each Monday I try to think about why I started this blog and look at what I have done so far.
Have I made progress ? I think I have but like most people I want it all done now. I have always been that way. When I have taken any testing about how we approach completing tasks, like for a college course I was taking or for work training I always was told I was a perfectionist. Do I agree with that ? Maybe, but not so much. Not when I look at the totality of my life. I guess in some ways I would like to be a perfectionist but in others I would rather play in some way. And maybe I am just a little bit lazy and take the easier path.
Anyway, back to progress. I am learning. I am learning about how to set up a blog. Do I know everything ? Far from it. I want to have a great blog and some day maybe have a large number of followers. I hope to open a conversation with others and learn from them. Will I get there ? We will see.
When I started this journey I knew nothing about blogs and thought they sounded like fun, so why not try it. I also knew nothing about Facebook or Twitter and only a tiny bit about Instagram. I posted before that I did not realize you have to download photos from a cell phone and, well, I do not have one of those. Amazing, right ?
So now I am on Facebook and Twitter and I am enjoying it. I have learned a little more about using the photos I have on my computer as a result of all this too.
I am stretching my mind and that is such a good thing. Remember I am no young chick, so I need to keep learning. Would it be easier to sit down and blindly look at the internet all day like so many of us do ? Or worse yet just watch TV. Sure it would be easier but not as much fun. Quite boring actually.
A part of my plan on “Adjusting My Time Frame” is to become more active. I have been so bad about that the last few years and I have slowed down; I can feel it. Not Good and I have said, No, No, No to that one. So I am now back on the treadmill and I have stopped at the local fitness center and gotten some printed information and also looked at their website. Unfortunately, when I stopped there was no one available to talk to. The receptionist took my tel # and someone was supposed to call me but no one has.
Like most things joining the gym requires spending money and that is why I have not done so before, or at least one of the reasons. I do have a plan though about how to try it out and get some instructions. I want to learn how to use free weights and I want to take some classes. They have a Tai-Yoga class which I really want to try. So I think I am going to join for 1 month and go from there. See what progress I make and then decide what I want to do and see if I can afford to keep going.
So some progress. Feels good !
