She Does Not Eat The Bread of Idleness

This journey has been quite interesting so far. I started in August (my dates are off because I began on a different blog before landing here) and now, two months later, I want to see how I have done. So this week I will review the past several weeks. At this time I will also be adding links and adjusting what I have already written.

So, we started with Proverbs 31:28:

She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.

I have to admit, at the beginning of this journey I had high hopes and thought I would do better than I did. For a while I did not do much. But, recently I feel like I have finally started this journey properly, I am now practicing more of this stuff that I wrote about in the beginning.

Eating elephants, frogs and actually reading my to do lists. Its coming. Slowly, but it’s coming.

To Do Review

Celebrate Your Victories

I went grocery shopping today and walked out having stayed under budget for the first time in quite a while! I also really wanted to hit fast food on the way home but made the better choice of coming straight home.

When these things happen, when you make good choices, celebrate! Don’t celebrate with a shopping spree but enjoy the feeling you get when you make good choices, tell a friend, enjoy budgeting!

How To Eat An Elephant

Who can find a virtuous woman? Her price is far above rubies
Proverbs 31:10

How many times do you begin browsing social media site only to end up 2 hours and 37 clicks later in a completely different area? This happened to me last week. I started off on Pinterest and at the end of my journey I had a new blog idea and a plan for the next year!

Proverbs 31 is a lifelong journey, but I do have some short term goals that I hope to accomplish and incorporate into my daily habits. However, even short term goals can be overwhelming at times. So I will be focusing on small pieces every week.

I will share resources that I am going through as I walk this journey along the way. Currently one very good resource is an ebook called One Bite At A Time, which was the main inspiration for this blog.

So lets grab a knife and a fork and get started on that elephant!
