Deliberate Day

This morning it was dreary. I don't like dreary.
But I did go and take a walk outside before beginning my day.
Today was deliberate day. Everything I did was to be deliberate,down to what I went to the store for and what I would be eating for the day. How much exercise I would do and what kind. I knew exactly what I needed to do to get myself back on track.
After my walk outside I went to my "alter" and prayed. I lit a candle. I touched my rocks and feathers and my wooden carved ox. I focused. It takes great energy to begin again.
But I will.
I hung my bells back up where they belonged.  I adorned my body and headed out the door.
My intentions set, my actions deliberate.
.....the hardest part coffee.

I am happy to, deliberate!

  1. I've been so busy doing nothing much that I haven't been around to visit my friends in too long. So, though my wishes are late, I mean them with my whole heart. May your year be filled with laughter. May all your surprises be happy ones. May you remember to count your blessings. May you know each day how very much you are loved. Happy new year, my friend.

  2. Thanks Relyn,I wish the same for you and yours. So happy I found your blog.

    Yes April, no coffee...not for a while..I add to much cream and I can't seem to enjoy it's herbal tea only...(it's not the same)

  3. I love your word for the day. Deliberate. I have to think about that a bit. I find that if I don't compartmentalize my day I get nothing done. But I enjoy the random days the most. Today must be deliberate though because I am not yet finished planning my Dad's 80th Birthday. Which is January 29. Yikes!

  4. "Leave nothing to chance
    leave everything to choice"

  5. I like the idea of having a deliberate day and will have to try that. It can be so hard to be grounded ... my head is usually up in the clouds. You are so spiritual. Why no coffee?

  6. Good for you. Living deliberately sounds like an awesome way to happiness and control over ones-self.
    I will have to try that soon.


  7. Deliberate means making choices
    We live and die by them anyway...might as well make them deliberate ones that lead us to our hearts desire

    "Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love " ...Rumi

    Coffee Goldenbird?...Well I'm on Atkins 14 day induction
    and that's best with no coffee

  8. Keep at it Suz, love that Rumi quote. Yay you.

  9. I wear that Rumi quote arond my neck
    day two ...done :)
