“Progress calls for an Open Mind”

       Well, I tried to center them but that didn’t work.  I’m amazed at how quickly the year has gone by.  37 of them have been lived and I’ve shown up every weekday of every one of those weeks.  That was one of my goals, and so far it seems to be the only one that I’m accomplishing this year! It is nice to be successful at one thing at least!

Last weeks Napoleon Hill reading begins with the statement that ” an open mind is a free mind.”  One of my bike thoughts was  from John 8, where Jesus says, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free”.  The question I began to ask myself was this:

Can I open my mind to a different reality – one where my goals are accomplished?

There are a few evidences that I can do this to some degree.  After all, I have shown up at the gym and used the equipment.  I have lost some weight. 

When I look at the green pages of my life I see two cancelled credit cards, increased savings, and less debt.  I was able to buy my plane ticket to Toronto with money I’d saved.  I’ve been able to sell some books so that I can do some adventuring while I’m there!
Career wise I’ve completed my studies and I have a certificate that says I can teach English as a Second Language here in Alberta and around the world. 

Creatively I’ve designed a scarf.  I need to do a “good copy” and submit it for publication.  It will be a free pattern and it should show up on this blog in the next month or two.  Definitely it will be done before Christmas because it’s a quick knit that lends itself to being gifted!

You know, writing this post has been good for me.  I was beginning to shoot myself down a bit.  Instead I see that I have indeed progressed and moved forward.  I’m already looking forward to tomorrow!

Looking up at the trees!


I thought I’d end the post with a picture I took a few years ago in Michigan.  It was a glorious day to drive and I enjoyed it thoroughly!

Have a good day!
