This Week's Inspiration 6/12/11

Last weekend, I was out of town with a few of my friends. We went river rafting for the first time. Ever. I was visibly shaking as I made my way down a long series of stairs to the raft where we'd be spending the next few hours. A lot of maneuvering our raft accordingly was working as a team to row at the same time and keep our feet planted to support ourselves as we went over some rough currents. We were focused on having a fantastic time and not falling overboard and we managed to do just that. After making it through the strong currents and into calmer waters, I recalled the feelings of absolute exhiliration, happiness and like I was going to be ill. I also decided at that moment I was going to take those feelings with me into trying other new things in my life. Damn, if I could go down a crazy river with my besties and a somewhat sane river guide, I could do anything! These feelings have waned a bit as I returned home on Monday and I spent the rest of the week embracing my inner slacker. With tomorrow being the start of a new week and the last week of school for my kids (ACK!), it's definitely time to find my motivation and routine again.

Flylady is definitely at the top of my list again. I spent a lot of time cleaning my office before I left for my trip so that I'd be ready to jump into work when I got back. Yeah, that didn't quite work out. :) I think this will be the week things get going again. (Side note: My husband got a message this morning from our relatives saying they'd be in the area today. So housework has already commenced).

Frugal Hacks: Widening the Mind as a Frugal Survival Skill.

Unplugged Sunday at Beauty That Moves. We've already been cable-free for 1 1/2 years. I'm not sure if my family could unplug for a day. I'm willing to give it a try.

I loved watching this and this lady's attitude on focusing what you do have.

Have a great week!
