My third day into this journey, and I can honestly say that I have not made a habit out of this yet.
I want so much to develop the thoughts on my 15% from yesterday, but did not allow enough time for note taking between posts. Good lesson learned, but what do I write about today?
My first two days went like this:
Day 1: establish a new goal, and hit the ground running (weekend day)
Day 2: get up early, and get inspiration after stretch and shower (another weekend day)
Day 3: today – rise early (on a weekday now), stretch, shower while thinking about 100 different things to write about, and can’t help but keep looking at the clock and wondering “…can I keep this up and have something meaningful to say in the small time I am devoting to writing/posting?” This all as my professional to-do list keeps flashing in my mind the most important things to get done before 10:00 am and beyond.
My most positive thought as I was stretching and showering this morning was the fact that I have set aside this time to do something that is really for no one else but me in that moment. This is a time nobody is depending on me (or paying me) to do something, and I can use the human gift of thought and inspiration that could be given by nothing other than a caring Father. In the big bicture, this small something will make me better for those around me the rest of the day. You’re welcome :).
Ramblings of day 3 are coming to a close. If nothing else is gained from this experiment, at least I will have done something worthwhile before 7:00 am besides drive to work.

Good Job DoD! LOL! As I prayed in the shower this morning…I prayed for your will to set this habit, because this is a good thing. A little DoM inspiration coming at ya-

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
The time you devote to your personal thoughts will surely be an inspiration to everyone around you whether they read your blog or not!
