|Auntie Em, Toto.....It's a Twister!!!|
I have all intentions of living a nice organized life with all my house and financial responsibilities handled in a very organized, efficient manner. I can see what I want in my mind, and I usually make a good stab at starting to get everything in line, then inevitably there is a hiccup in the road and I just give up and get back to leading my unplanned, un-managed way of life. And as I fully expect, living this way always comes back to bite me in the a$%.
I was thinking over the weekend about my life and what it has amounted to so far and where I want it to go in the future. Up until two months ago I was very involved with a dog rescue group. I left abruptly after three years because of a personality conflict I had (for lack of a better term). I was ready to leave months before but needed a push.The last altercation was just the push I needed and I left. Looking back I realize that I put up with a lot over the three years at a big cost to my esteem and sanity but I have no regrets because I learned invaluable lessons. But I do have to say that I am still struggling with not being involved with dog rescue on some level.

I have had all my friends tell me that if I start my own rescue that they would support me 100% and help me with fundraising and whatever I would need to make it a success. I fully plan on getting this up and running as soon as I can. BUT, I think my own life needs to be fully in order before I jump in with both feet and expect to be successful with a rescue. Hence the necessity on of this new endeavor!
My plan is to create a schedule broken down by days of the week for household chores (i.e. cleaning, paperwork management) a budget for the remainder of the year with a tracking system to see where it worked or failed, and a project plan for completions of all the unfinished projects in my life. My goal is to follow this schedule for six weeks. While I attempt this massive undertaking I will keep myself in check by blogging my progress once a week so I have a journal to see where I fail or succeed to determine what works. My older brother once told me he read that a person only has to do an action 6-8 consecutive weeks before it becomes a "habit" in their life. Hey it is worth a shot right?

Wish me luck!!!
