Good morning, Is it really Friday already?
So far goal 1 studying for my certification is going pretty well. I turned in my application ( a lengthy process in itself) and have consistently studied at least 1 1/2 hours a day sometimes more. I committed to 1 1/2 hours in the am and in the pm each day so I did not stick to that plan but I am giving myself some flexibility since I was traveling, taking care of my Dad, balancing that with not staying at home. I am on schedule to finish my first two sections by tomorrow night as planned.
As for goal 2: making someone feel special. It was raining on the day I left Texas and the new guy I am dating lives in Texas so I decided to do something to make him feel special. I made a few rainy day notes and put them in an envelope and mailed them to him so he should have a nice surprise today even though I am not there physically.
I also made a conscious effort especially on my last few days in Texas to spend more time at my Dad’s apartment during the day instead of running around doing work from a coffee shop or working out. Often I only go by when I am taking him to Dr’s appointments or to eat after a Dr appointment and then I drop him off and he goes to lay down and I leave. Instead I did my work and studying from his apartment for a few hours each day so even if he was in the other room sleeping I was there when he woke up from a nap. Was this a perfect attempt no? I can always improve and put the work away next time and sit and watch tv with him …but it is a start!
Next week looking to up my study game and focus on positive speak as I find my next special moment to create!
