Couch Potatoes Not Allowed
Without constant monitoring, the best laid plans of mice and men (women) may come to a disappointing end.
Have you taken a long trip? Did you fill up with gas one time? Nope, you stopped at service stations and refueled several times. Completing personal plans demand scheduled reviews.
I planned to share my review and revision of each of my goals in one big post. Wrong. I would just be blabbing. In the previous post, I totally revealed the facts of where I am physically. After documenting them, seeing my short comings and empty actions, I decided to do a post for each plan.
Some plans may interest you more than others. If you share a goal I am doing , please encourage me by sharing your activity.
The following video supports my belief of movement. Click and think. Click the picture for the full article.
In 2013, I encountered a set back that transformed reality to reason for excuses.My quality of life was reduced to undesirable by limitations. Each dreaded step was an excuse.
Planning my best year ever required me to ask, “What is the Opportunity Here? ” I am excited to share opportunities I found! Especially in the physical plan, I sometimes had to ask, ” What is an alternate opportunity?”
Although my plans aren’t mature, progress fills me with joy not despair, hope not sadness and a fire to complete them.
Get up! Get Out,

My Evaluation comparison: a 97-year-old lady I know….. she walks better, is informed, loves to dance, lives alone, hires help during the day, does not worry about money. She doesn’t know day from night. She is blind. I serve a Living God. He meets me where I am. Comparison is not my solution. My Plan will make me the Best Me I can Be!
Motivations: True descriptions of me: Friend said, ” In the event of emergency you couldn’t run, or walk fast to get away from trouble.” Another friend said, “I have concerns about taking you fishing. I don’t think you can balance.” I panicked on the fourth floor when there was a fire drill.
Walk….3 miles daily with confidence, in airport, stores, park, uneven surfaces, up and down hill
Climb and descend stairways
Find comfortable shoes
Build Strong Bones
Regain Good Posture
Achieve a fast walking status

Starting at birth, we learn and develop habits. Bad habits return us to the beginning, crying for revision. Thank you for following this journey with me. For my Quality control, I scheduled each improvement action in my calendar. This summary is the first of 7.

Beginning 2017 …
Physical: movement restricted to less than 1000 steps per day. Overweight.
Financial: Sad. Over 60,000 in debt. Very limited income.
Vocational: I am learning a new way.
Spiritual: I knew God, but missed the Divine connection.
Emotional: Depressed, only a tiny ray of hope.
Intellectual: Not bad. Each day presented a new learning experience.
Social: In Hibernation. I interacted in a physical environment primarily with 2 people. Two dear tribe members were phone contacts.
Unfinished Business: A list of 100 things disturbed my sleep, sapped my joy and became my mountain. It seemed overwhelming, with no space to make life better.
This was a bleak picture. Thank God for progress. I will finish this year as the best year ever. Dealing with the list, opened space to improve and follow my plan.
It isn’t fun to lay written garbage out for everyone to see and smell. I will share my clean up progress September 1st. The present is a continuing miracle. I am filled with hope. It is fun to share progress and ignite hope with you.
September 1, is Celebration Time; progress update will be posted by September 3rd. Let’s…

God, This is My Story..
Hello God, I am really suffering down here. I declared this to be my best year ever and here I am stuck in the messy middle. This is my story, and I don’t know what to do….No, I am not whining. No, I am not on the path to insanity by repeating mistakes over and over…I defined my path…and I am stuck. Here’s what’s going on.
Recap of my Prayers Yesterday
Wow, today I promised myself I would do a blog post…instead, I am crying and crying and crying. Dear God, are you storing my tears in heaven? This one is for Parkinson’s. This one is for finances. This one for my appetite. You know the rest!
Today…..again, I said God, I told you my story. He answered, ” Now, listen to mine!”
I know the plans I have for you……
Now, stop your whining. Pray your intercessory prayers.
Go forth and Prosper,

My knowledge of shipping containers is zero to nothing. These are really pretty and relatively inexpensive. I wonder if you need be near the water in order to get containers.
For me, I will stay with the little building. I would love to hear your feedback for these.

For the past 2 weeks I have written daily about death, eulogies, final expense and being prepared. I wrote for me. I wrote because of the mess 3 other families have currently left. I wrote to share things essential to be done for my final address and for yours. I have gathered information from 4 states and will be sharing next week.
The information will fill more than one post. We will have some PDF’s and print information for you to keep. For tonight, I want to share happy thoughts.
Someone asked me to give a 2 minute speech selling them an idea for something I believe in and love with a passion. My son reminded me that the past few months I have constantly stated how much I love writing each day. My friend in Ga., challenged me to be like Stephen King and write 2000 words each day not 500! Apparently, I have convinced her I am passionate about writing.
From writing almost every day since January 1, I have formed the following opinion. Everyone has a story. Tell yours. Tell a friends.
Write your story and if you don’t like the story re-write it in a more productive way. Write it as though it happened the way you wanted. Then, sift through and find the golden nuggets of good. You will find as I did, healing sentences and discover positive things you may have overlooked during the challenge.
Writing is therapy without an invoice!
My 9-year-old granddaughter writes her story every almost every night. She likes to share in bunches and I have learned so much about what she thinks and why. If she can’t sleep, I ask her to write. She writes, clears her mind and falls into a gentle peaceful It’s personal. Ask permission to read.
Five Things I Discovered About Writing 500 Words A Day
Writing my Story has healed wounds and embrace good memories
Writing someone else’s story can be a service.
Writing without premeditation opens my mind to creativity.
Writing plans each day increased awareness and action.
Writing, writing, writing may become my book and I will be an Author!
Join a Writing Group. I joined My 500 Words with Jeff Goins. Many of the members have connected and feel like family. I haven’t shared much more than the number of words I write each day. The Accountability factor is there and coaches me right along.
Check it out and join us! You will be welcomed! We can all,

5 Gears To Shift…A Mechanic’s Daughter
Cars, I love cars! My dad was an excellent mechanic. A World War II Veteran, when he got out of service he made less than a Dollar a day working for a garage owner, doing repairs. My mom said this dog won’t hunt. You need your own garage. They borrowed money from my grandfather and he built a building. Yes, that is what I intended to say.The building was designed to be a garage.
It had a high ceiling so he could use a hoist to take an engine out and a 2 big doors in front plus a side door. It became a functional garage when he added tools, reference books, mother’s help in customer service, a phone, a little desk for billing and general bookkeeping, continued education and networking.
When I was a little girl I never heard the label entrepreneur, book-keeper, customer service, networking or continuing education. My Dad and Mom generated their business their need and the need of the community to keep their cars running! Sound familiar?
They agreed they would payoff the little mortgage on their home, pay my grandfather back and never, never borrow against their house. I never heard the term give 10% to the church. Every time we went to church, they gave money. They supported an orphanage in rural Kentucky, gave to those in need. I never heard my Dad say “We can’t afford it” when I was growing up.
Imagine that! Today, I am reviewing what my parents did and what parts of their example I should implement. The simple answer is, all of it! It is time to shift to 5th gear for the remainder of this year. I will do what I love.
My Dad loved cars and fostered my love for them. He Loved his work. Yes, there is two sides to this story, a dark side which emerged later in his life. From that chapter I have learned a road to avoid. It is not in front of me now.
Daddy would say, Molinda, you can drive anything! I certainly didn’t grow up thinking women were inferior to men. When I was 10 my dad and I raced from Kentucky to Bell Missouri and try as he may, I won! Obviously, later I realized I wasn’t legal to drive. The car we drove had an automatic transmission and I wasn’t introduced to a “stick” shift until I was 14. I loved changing gears.
The hum of the engine told me when it was time to shift, so I started the car, pulled out in 1st gear shifted to second, shifted to third, cruised in 4th and raced in 5th or Overdrive to travel at maximum speed.
Last week I struggled with frustration trying to write my outline. I felt confused and overwhelmed. Then, I remembered Daddy’s example. He just did the right thing each day. I am doing the right thing each day! Daddy would say
Start your engine little one —– website, my little building for you to visit
Hear the hum of the engine, shift into 1st gear — share information
Depress the clutch and shift to Second — deliver content
Third Gear —Accelerate, stay focused, see the destination
Shift to Fourth and Go! It’s okay to hit overdrive! — Share bits of Wisdom Go, Go, Goforth
