I read The Successful Single Mom. It's off on some important things, but it did help me a lot. When I started reading the book, I felt defeated, overwhelmed, and like I was a personal failure. This book has helped me shed the weight of the past and set some lofty goals for the future. The author challenges her readers to successfully complete a 100 day action plan. Most of the book leads up to that action plan, and then she directs you to a website that no longer exists. So, no 100 day action plan. Not hers, anyway!
I loved her idea of the 100 day action plan, but I'm just going to have to make my own. I've decided to focus on the three areas of my life that I would like to see the greatest change: my time with God, my health, and my job of tutoring. I haven't decided exactly how to go about it, but it should be a very beneficial run!
The time with God is easy. Read the Bible and pray every day, and socialize with fellow Believers. I would also like to write some prayers out. It is something I have done in the past that has really helped my healing. If I have time, I might consider reading some uplifting Christian works. We shall see...
For my health, I need to revamp my system. I need to consume more calories, exercise at least 3 times each week, and consume the nasty tasting Gatorade stuff at least twice each month. Oh, and I need to drink more water.
I'm excited about pursuing the tutoring. I have ordered business cards from Vistaprint, I've typed up something to put on community bulletin boards, and I plan to canvass schools and churches.
It will take me a few weeks to set up the action plan, but I will let you know when I have it figured out. If you have any ideas to help me acheive my goals, please share!
