Trusting the process.
“I used to be a big believer in setting SMART goals—the specific, measurable, actionable kind. (e.g., decrease my mile time from 9:30 to 9:10 by July 1, 2016.)
But a few years ago I made a startling discovery. After that I mostly quit making SMART goals, and instead began tracking my participation in certain areas—health, fitness, writing, reading. I committed to take certain steps every day, with zero regard for the results.
I found that when I began simply tracking these activities—holding myself accountable to doing these small and medium tasks everyday—the results took care of themselves. And I enjoyed the process so much more.
Now when I set goals, I focus on the process (which I can control), not the outcome (which I can’t).”
“Links I Love:
My favorite finds from around the web:
• American Library Association announces 2017 youth media award winners. All the award winners and honor books for the Newbery, Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, Printz, Alex, and more awards.
• 7 bonus bullet journal lessons, from the Lazy Genius.
• The best indoor plants to bring green into your home (and how to keep them alive)”

“Welcome to Today’s Marriage Prayer
This blog, like the book, is an invitation to draw close to each other and closer to God. It’s a dare to fight for your marriage. It’s a challenge to pray with, and for each other every day.”
“Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to be a part of each other’s life, and to be present in the moments we share.
Some days we’re so caught up in our own thing that we forget to slow down and truly connect.
It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of every day life. We spend time together without really being together—maybe we’re surfing the net, maybe we’re distracted with something else, or perhaps we’re glued to the TV…
There’s a time and place for everything, but we must also make time for each other.”

“Good house keeping starts with a good cleaning schedule, and there’s nothing like walking into a house that smells as good as it looks. When floors are washed, beds are made and dishes are put away, the family gains a sense of comfort in knowing that their surroundings are under control. Being clean and organized saves you both time and money. When all things are put in proper order you don’t have to spend minutes or hours looking for lost items. And when supplies are carefully organized, you can easily find them instead of replenishing stock. That’s where a schedule like this comes in handy!”
