CELEBRATING – OWN LITTLE WORD CHECK IN

MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.
MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.

I was at the gym walking on the treadmill this week and watching the Today Show.  The day was February 9.  They said that February 9 marked the day of the year when people gave up on their New Year’s resolutions.  Apparently, the way they arrived at that conclusion was by polling fitness centers and finding that attendance at fitness centers steadily declines after that date.

Since it was February 9 and I was on a treadmill and my OLW is:

persistence2

I am celebrating that I persisted in my exercise goals so far for 2016.

The other area that I didn’t want to slack off was in my new project, the Senior Salon.  I am excited to celebrate that I have faithfully worked every day on building that community of artists and have watched it grow week after week.

I am excited to share with you this celebration that my tiny muscle of persistence is gaining some strength.  Maybe by December I will look like this:  (well, maybe just the muscle part)

Popeye1

Wish me luck,

Bernadette

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. It is a little cold in Somerset, to be present in a stream… he he persitant like a stream. Well I ticked off one of the big goals I’d set for 2016 so the 9th was not for me the dday to give in. Congratulations I am glad you “Perseyweer” Your blog introduces more friends and connections for me, which were seriously lacking before I virtually met blog to blog. So well done in all your goals we can virtually pat each others backs; for not giving up or giving in. 😇

  2. Great post about persisting with your OLW. I certainly wouldn’t want your muscles to pop out like Popeye but having persistence is a wonderful goal. Glad that you are sticking to your New Year thought to guide you through 2016.

    I’m glad I didn’t pick this word because I would have failed by now. My word is Present and that is working just fine for me. Congratulations on keeping your resolution for exercise. Keep it up!

  4. Congratulations, Bernadette. I’m proud for you too about that persistence, in the gym & with your new project. I will check it out, and wish I could participate, but am just full up right now. Best wishes for growth, in both things! Love the Popeye analogy, very fun.

  5. Aw hell…I have belonged to my gym for a year now, and a different gym before that. I try to avoid the joint in January, when the place gets ridiculously crowded. Keep going! You’re going to like the place even better when the “resolutionists” start to fall off! Nice blog! Glad I found ya!
