If you are just seeing this hop for the first time click on the button to see the main post.
Below is the question of the week:

Question of the week: What are the blessings and challenges of being a woman/man?

My response:

Often, and this week is one of them, living is a blessing and a challenge.

The blessing would be that I get a chance to start each day, fresh and new :)

The challenge: There is not enough time in the day, half full glasses and rainbows to chase.

And still is is all worth while :D

Motivation Monday — My LIst

Motivation-Monday-Button KLY

I'm joining Kelly's Lucky You for Motivation Monday!

 

Do you have a New Year’s resolution? Do you have a goal for 2011?

If you wrote a post about your progress, success, or challenges

toward reaching a milestone and would like to share it with others, please leave a link here.

 

This is my progress on my very doable list for this year. In my previous post: Just One Word For Last Year, I chose, Improved, as I re-read as the main word for this year.
This year is going to be even more improved with more Peace, Joy and Grace.
I have a lot of Hope that I can make it that much more improved than last year.

This is my expand, more detailed  list:
  • I will not say that I "will" do something, if I won't do it.

I run my life like this. Don't make promises you can't keep.

  • I will remember my goals.

I do, sometimes I get down and think things aren't going in the right direction. I'm human, :)

  • I will keep adding content to my blogs. I may be doing something to incorporate all 3 Blogger blogs.

Still have not got this one done. I am trying to decide if I will keep them separate or combine them.

I'm leaning to combing them.

  • I will continue to pursue networking resources. hint: I have a Guest Post next week. DONE

I've joined some Great groups! I have 2 reviews lined up and really looking forward to the future progress.

  • I will continue to schedule my day, a little at a time.

This is going really slow. I have become more adept at keeping my blog and home duties synced. Babysteps :)

  • I will make a video for this blog.

Still on the workbench.

  • I will share some of my organization tips and tricks on coupons.
  • I will share the system I use for bills, checkbook, accounts, etc

These two are on the workbench.

  • I will read more of my bible study.

Not doing so good at this one. I do have an idea that will help once I get my blogs combined.

  • I am going through my email accounts and removing myself from some of the lists I am on. (I am finding more inspiration from blogs, what I have learned to date, and simple trial and error)

Still a work in progress. I have eliminated quite a bit. I have also found a few new blogs to follow by email.

  • I am going to continue to sift through my Google Reader and share things I like on Buzz.

Still working on this. I am organizing and sharing.

  • I am going to continue to be the same caring, hopeful woman I have always been.

I hope this never changes! This truly is a statement of who I am as a person.

  • I will find more ways to bring Joy into my life.

Some JOY can be made, Some JOY just has to happen!

  • I will find more ways to bring Peace into my life.

What I am finding with this, is that, to obtain Peace you have to shake things up that are taking away your Peace.

  • I will find more ways to encourage God's Grace to be shown in my life.

Through prayer I find the most opportunities. God will grant me little inspirations and I act upon them.

  • I will write a post about my experience with a Life Coach.

I completely forgot about this one. Ouch! I will get a draft started this week.

  • I am going to figure out self hosting my blog.
  • DONE!

  • I am going to figure out Word Press, if it kills me!

DONE! Well, partly :)

  • I am going to continue to learn new things.

I guess this really will never be completed. But it is a good reminder not to get stuck in stagnant behaviors.

  • I am going to continue to change the things about my life that I have control over.

Another one that will never be completed.

I hope you will continue follow along on this journey of mine.

I can't promise I will never make a mistake.

But I can promise that this Blog will always be REAL!!

Meet Me On Monday!

MeetMonday

 

 

Welcome to the 40th edition of
"Meet Me On Monday!"

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

Questions: 

1.  Crunchy or soft tacos?

I love soft tacos! I don't do well with crunchy, they crumble all over the place. I am also allergic to some corn products and this tends to get the sinuses flaired up.

2.  Do you scrapbook?

No, I would like to, hopefully in time I will find more time.

3.  Do you take any daily medications?

Yes, I developed High Blood Pressure following a car accident 3 years ago. I have moderate to severe chronic pain and it has taken its toll on my blood pressure. I also take seasonal allergy medicine.

4.  What is your favorite sound?

The sound of our wind chimes. My husband and I spent a lot of time on the porch in the summer, especially in the evenings. It is very peaceful.

5.  Where were you born?

Oklahoma!
