Flowers from the Universe

We have been getting just the right amount of soaking rain combined with bursts of powerful Florida sunshine to produce these big beautiful blooms from our rosebush. This is the second batch and more are on the way.  The gardenias are blooming too! MMmmmm, I just love the smell of gardenias.

I'm having a great week after starting the Artist's Way session for the summer.  I don't know why I ever stop doing the morning pages because they really do help cut through the muck...probably for the same reason that I stop running.  Nevertheless, I restarted both this past week and I feel energized and on track.

Plus I had a really great coaching/planning session with the wonderful Stephanie Guimond as part of her Get Clear, Get Moving project.  For years, I have been telling the story that I am not good at time management, but after talking with Stephanie, I not only feel like I can easily get my project completed, but that I am also on my way to being a Master of  Time Management!  I'll write more about my project and how this coaching session helped me in a later post.

One new habit that I am incorporating is the use of a timer to track how long I stay on the computer...this simple little trick helps increase my awareness of how much time is spent on the computer.   I set mine for 30-minute intervals.  If I am still working on something, of course, I can finish, but I reset the timer for another 30-minute segment.  If I find at the end of the 30 minutes, I am just surfing about, then I simply log off and re-evaluate what I need to be doing.
If you have time issues, go ahead and give it a try and let me know what you think.

Hope you are having a great week too!


  1. I miss my AM pages as well ... maybe once we move I can get back to em.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Sonya! And yes, start them again...the sooner the better!


Aloha friends! It's so nice to hear from you!
