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.

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
