March Madness - Day 9

Consistency is key!

One of the things I was challenged to do this month is to run one mile per day.

Just to be clear, the goal is NOT to run 31 miles this month. The goal is NOT to increase the distance each day, or even each week. The goal is NOT to run as fast as I can.

The goal is to be CONSISTENT!!!

That's what happens when we create a habit. We are consistent.

When we are consistent with certain things in our lives, we experience growth like never before.

What is something that you started but then stopped?

What is a goal you had but changed it to make it easier to achieve?

It's time to finish what you started and to get to your goal.

Nothing worth having comes easy. WORK for the things you want.

Stay the course even when you don't want to.

Be persistently CONSISTENT!!!

You've been challenged!

What will you choose to be consistent with?

  1. This is crazy because everyday in my debriefing I say I need to be more CONSISTENT. I am confident in some areas but others I feel like I am BIG kids back on 7th grade in a new school, new surrounding, and trying to find my way around (despite the fact that I see these same people EVERYDAY (what I was consistent with was no more because of my new surroundings). I had to be honest with myself that I BORE easily, I need a Challenge daily (it's really more than that), I NEED to see results NOW (but I am not always really willing to do what it takes to get there), I want to "Be persistently CONSISTENT" but I need to GROW in this area.

  2. Thank you for your honesty. As you work at be persistently CONSISTENT, remember to start small. Be consistent will small things. You don't have to try to change the world in one swoop. Small, steady steps will take you where you want to be.

March Madness - Day 5

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
