Thursday 26 April 2012

We will experience a newfound hope.

We will be able to risk failure
to develop new hidden talents.

Opportunities nourished by actions
will thrive and grow.

prayer: give me focus, strength, perseverance and balance.

i can err on the side of losing focus, or binging. God help me do neither extreme. But keep me balanced and moving.

Thank You for all the blessings in my life: faith, trust, hope, a future, family, friends, fun, a job, a home, food, your word.

I have to accept that I need to start with baby steps from where I am. It is not realistic to think that I can go from doing almost no thesis work for a long time to working full days on it. My aim is to start with 15 minutes earlier in the day and see if I can do more after that.

Up, showered and dressed by 7.45
