The Best of Intentions

Hmmm... Today didn't quite go as I intended. For instance, I intended to get up at 5 and go to the gym before work. Didn't happen. I did NOT intend to get a snack when I went to the gas station. Did happen. I intended to drink a lot of water today. Didn't happen. I did NOT intend to watch TV all night. Did happen.

Too often I have days like this and get upset with myself. But right now, at this moment, I'm going to think on the bright side and tell you about some things that I didn't intend to happen today. They did happen and I couldn't be happier.

  • I didn't intend to see the cutest picture of my youngest nephew on Sister's blog, but I did.
  • I didn't intend to enjoy the most wonderful weather today, but I did.
  • I didn't intend to laugh a bunch today, but I did.
  • I didn't intend to fall even more in love with my husband today, but I did.

Did anything great happen to you today that wasn't on your agenda?

I'm impressed that you were even thinking about a 5 am workout! I think you probably burned some calories by thinking about it. :)

hahahaha so funny!!! I love the way you write this, Jill. So honest. Happens all the time. But like you said, it is super important to focus on the did's instead of didn't

PS: there's a whole rumble today on the coast guard base bc the yankee's PR person said they didn't recognize the coast guard as a military branch. Coasties here are pretty upset to say the least, captain's going to try to get the yankees to go back on what they said.....uh oh. To be continued, I guess. haha!

What an adorable post! Seriously, so cute! I might copy this theme sometime soon as I feel to have days like as well.

This sounds like so many of my days, especially the part about going to the gym.
