Pie Chart Your Upsets

Filed under: Uncategorized — alwayswithme @ 7:46 pm

I read somewhere recently an idea that I thought would be useful to me since I find myself frequently getting overwhelmed with life.   The article suggested putting your problems down on paper in a piechart format.  This way you are able to actually see which problems are major ones and which ones in the grand scheme are just minor annoyances.  If I do this and then put the minor ones in my First Things First agenda I bet that I can whittle that chart down to just the major things and life will not seem so unbalanced at times.   Just a thought!

River of Doubt

Filed under: Books — alwayswithme @ 2:24 pm

I am currently reading River of Doubt by Candice Millard for my September book club.  After several attempts to get it started, I have finally gotten into it.   The thing I enjoy about this book club (which I found through my church) is that I am reading books I would never have read before and am loving them!  What a joy and for some reason it makes me feel grown up.
