I am so thankful that it is Friday. Tomorrow will include sleeping in and taking my children to Powells. Sunday I will watch them race their dirtbikes. It will be a fabulous weekend.

This week has been a bit draining. I've done a lot of soul-searching and began executing change in my life. It seems like when that's the goal, to change any aspect of the status quo, then heels get dug in to impede progress. Sometimes your own. Sometimes others. This usually makes the process exhausting.

This week has had it's rewards, though. I completed journals. I opened an etsy shop. I volunteered last night at ESL class. And, I worked very hard every day at work. For the most part, I did not get bogged down by economic doom and gloom. I meditated. I *thought* about doing yoga, does that count? I ate healthy food. I practiced random acts of kindness.

My friend, Connie, at dirty footprints wrote recently about being the change. She works in a negative work environment and she started changing herself... in order to cope with it. I have stopped absorbing all the negativity around me. I do NOT participate in convos about the failing economy or the election. I simply remove myself from the area, either literally or figuratively. What a difference it makes!

I am on day 13 of my 1oo days... and it's just going to get better and better! There will be rocky roads... but I can handle them!

I think you're right on target, Robyn, and you've accomplished so MUCH this week! If you can do half or a quarter of that each week, by the end of the 100 days -- well, the only word that comes to mind is, "Wow."

Happy Friday -- and have fun this weekend.

Geoff (Eleanor with me, as always)

I'm with you sista! Once anyone starts talking about the election I right away (kind of rudely even) cut them off and say "I"m all done with that...I know who I'm going to vote for..and all this political stuff going on is petty." That's it. I don't read anymore about it or listen to about it or even talk about it. No thanks.

Glad to hear you've been so productive!! Where's you Etsy shop...I want to check it out! Do you ever go to the blog Lunar Musings? You can find a link for it on my sidebar on Dirty Footprints. Elana, the writer, she also has an Etsy shop where she makes journals...check it out.

I've been thinking alot about the 100 Day Challenge this weekend too. I need to post a blog post on there!

Hey, anytime you "think" about doing yoga, switch your thoughts to focus on your breath...take a deep breath in and a slow deep breath out...and there, you're doing YOga!

Lots of love to you!!

Peace & Love.
