One Thing

Thank you all for the kind words about Lizzie. The leg is gradually coming down in size, and she’s moving easier. She had the last anti-inflammatory/steriod shot yesterday, and now she’s on bute and being handwalked. So much for the upcoming show in the beginning of November. :( No word on the blood test yet – the vet is supposed to call back.

I was thinking about the part in City Slickers where the Jack Palance character talks about “One Thing”. I don’t know that I have one single important thing to focus on, but I’ve decided to focus on a series of small One Things, one a day if I can. One single thing that I can do that will have a positive effect on my life, or move me a step closer to a goal.

Here are my “things” for today:

1. I brought my naturalisation paperwork with me this morning, so I can hopefully steal a few minutes to work on it.

2. I didn’t have a mid-morning snack, and neither did I take anything from the sweets tray at lunch. I need to get back into shape and feel better about myself and my body.

3. I ignored about fifteen mails from the US office today. I am staying apart as much as possible from all of the current flame wars…that’s the plan, anyway. :)

Small steps, but it’s a start.

    lol – I can sympathise – my mid-morning snack ended up being at lunchtime! Damned inconsiderate work getting in the way of my crisps…!
