Feels like change

Ever have a wiggling feeling, one you can't quite catch but feel all the same?  I've got one right now, and we've been chasing each other around for a week or so now.  The feeling that something/things need to change.  Not big changes, necessarily.  Just regular-sized ones.  I'm not sure what things, though.  So I'm making a list.  First, the small stuff:

  • Activity Level (less TV, more running)
  • Food Habits (less cereal for dinner, more vegetables)
  • Sleeping Patterns (this one is tough, because Handsome keeps me on my toes with his crazy sched)
  • Attention Paid to Duke-a-Loop (my puppy needs more exercise, just like me)
  • House Duties (again, less TV, more regular action for the scrub brushes)
  • School Work (more actual work done, less procrastination)
  • Bib-e-la (reading it, praying it, living it)
Then comes the big stuff (that I don't have to decide on right now, but is good to think about):
  • Moving
  • Job
  • Degree
  • Car
It seems, as far as changes go, that the small large ones are easier to make.  Sure, they require more forethought, but as far as execution, they're mostly a one-and-done type deal.  The little changes are what seem to trip me up.  I would like to make it a lifestyle change, a whole turn around, rather than a promise I make to myself at the beginning of the year and feel guilty about later while I sit on the couch.  I'm just not exactly sure how to go about it.  I suppose, in making the small changes, it happens in a series of small decisions.  So I'm going to decide to go to bed right now, before its too late, and I'm going to decide to read my bible before I sleep, and when I get up in the morning, I'll try to make some more decisions again.

  1. You are very right. It is so much easier to implement the big changes, while the small changes that may only require an extra 30 minutes from us each day seem insurmountable.
