Progress Made

On each Monday I try to think about why I started this blog and look at what I have done so far.

Have I made progress ?  I think I have but like most people I want it all done now.  I have always been that way.  When I have taken any testing about how we approach completing tasks, like for a college course I was taking or for work training I always was told I was a perfectionist.  Do I agree with that ?  Maybe, but not so much.  Not when I look at the totality of my life.  I guess in some ways I would like to be a perfectionist but in others I would rather play in some way. And maybe I am just a little bit lazy and take the easier path.

Anyway, back to progress.  I am learning.  I am learning about how to set up a blog.  Do I know everything ? Far from it.  I want to have a great blog and some day maybe have a large number of followers.  I hope to open a conversation with others and learn from them. Will I get there ? We will see.

When I started this journey I knew nothing about blogs and thought they sounded like fun, so why not try it.  I also knew nothing about Facebook or Twitter and only a tiny bit about Instagram.  I posted before that I did not realize you have to download photos from a cell phone and, well, I do not have one of those.  Amazing, right ?

So now I am on Facebook and Twitter and I am enjoying it.  I have learned a little more about using the photos I have on my computer as a result of all this too.

I am stretching my mind and that is such a good thing.  Remember I am no young chick, so I need to keep learning.  Would it be easier to sit down and blindly look at the internet all day like so many of us do ?  Or worse yet just watch TV.  Sure it would be easier but not as much fun. Quite boring actually.

A part of my plan on “Adjusting My Time Frame” is to become more active.  I have been so bad about that the last few years and I have slowed down; I can feel it.  Not Good and I have said, No, No, No to that one.  So I am now back on the treadmill and I have stopped at the local fitness center and gotten some printed information and also looked at their website.  Unfortunately, when I stopped there was no one available to talk to. The receptionist took my tel # and someone was supposed to call me but no one has.

Like most things joining the gym requires spending money and that is why I have not done so before, or at least one of the reasons.  I do have a plan though about how to try it out and get some instructions.  I want to learn how to use free weights and I want to take some classes.  They have a Tai-Yoga class which I really want to try.  So I think I am going to join for 1 month and go from there.  See what progress I make and then decide what I want to do and see if I can afford to keep going.

So some progress.  Feels good !


Moving Forward.....that is what this blog is about and adjusting my Time Frame. We all have a time frame although we may acknowledge, or look at our life that way, but life is our own personal time frame. I am in my early 70's and I plan on living for many more years and accomplish many things. This blog is the beginning of that process. It is my way of pushing myself along that path. So where do I go from here? Follow along and maybe what I do will help you to Move Forward as well. Also, join me on my journey at
