No one wears shoes

I own a business. I have been telling myself this over and over. Currently I am studying finance/accounting and also reading the "Women's Small Business Start Up Kit".

Two marketing scouts from a shoe factory traveled to Africa to explore business opportunities. The first scout sends a telegram back to the factory, "Situation one wears shoes." But the second sends the message, "Glorious business one wears shoes."

Which attitude am I going to have?

She can laugh

Like the thirst of a man in the desert...I wanted to read my Bible this morning. I knew I could find a gem of truth to cling to, hold in my heart and keep circulating in my mind.

This is what I found for today...

"She is clothed with STRENGTH and DIGNITY; she can laugh at the days to come." Prov 31:25

Both sections of this verse really blessed me. I have always wanted to be one of those classy, strong, well intentioned women. To clothe myself both inwardly and outwardly with a dignity. To have an air of royalty with a gentle breeze of humility.

I think of my attitude the last several months and it has been an evolutionary process. I have gone from anger, to frustration, to grief and am just on the outer edges of laughter. To laugh at the days to come means my heart is filled with such peace, such anticipation that not even my imagination can falter it.

Today I look forward. Today I look inward. Today I clothe myself with dignity and laughter.

I can hardly move

Starting P90X and a Sculpt/Tone class in the same week is beyond stupid. I can barely move. My legs hurt so bad that I am bound to kill myself on the stairs.

Thinking to gain some comfort for my pain...I asked Emmanuel...

"Is my butt getting tighter?"

No, he said

"Well you could lie a little!"

Goals for the rest of 2010

It is halfway through the year...I have been home since January 6th and besides raising a beautiful baby girl...I haven't got alot accomplished.

So, I figured the best way to accomplish anything, is to first identify what I want to achieve!

1- Practice French
2- Start my book
3- Finish my finance class
4- Work on getting CTG more contracts
5- Continue to work on getting pre-baby body back

Hopefully this list will help motivate me! It may even be going on the honorable fridgerator door.
