ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24TH, 2015
24 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:10 am
Sunset: 6:13 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Single Tasking Day. Research shows that multitasking is really inefficient. Trying to focus on and hop between multiple tasks dilutes focus, introduces delays, and makes things take longer to complete. Single Tasking Day, then, is about embracing one and only one task. Make a list, put it in order of priority, and get started on a task and ignore everything else until you finish it!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The first rule of focus is Wherever you are be there.
There are many times I find myself multi tasking with out even realizing it. I’ll start out to do one thing and get sidetracked by something else before I finally get back to the work at hand. I like to make lists of what I need to get done each week. I’ll plan to get laundry done on one day and then go shopping and get errands done on another, but my plans don’t always go the way I want.
There are times that sticking to your plan works, but more often than not, at least for me, my plans can change quickly. I’m really not much good at multi tasking at all, so when plans change, I just let go of what I’d previously planned and move on to what ever the day has brought me.
I’ve found I’m not the one and charge and that all things eventually work out for the good. The good Lord doesn’t run on our timetable, so we just have to trust that for whatever reason our plans don’t work out that He has it all under control.
Keeping focused on what truly matters isn’t always easy, but if it doesn’t really matter to you it’s really not worth wasting time on.
I hope you all continue to keep warm and safe on these cold days! Have a terrific Tuesday !
Please join me in praying for DS#4 as it seems he now has gall bladder problems and will soon have surgery. May the dear Lord guide the doctors caring for him and may he have a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2522. for a reminder to focus on what matters
2523. for a fridge that is finally working again
2524. for what truly matters in my life, faith family and friends
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
While we are focusing on fear, worry, or hate, it is not possible for us to be experiencing happiness, enthusiasm or love.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
