just wanted to share...

this layout that Kim did for Prompt 7.

her journaling reads: I have started on the journey, I am working out again, back on the treadmill, trying for 5 days a week, building confidence each day, one step at a time, one day at a time, on the journey for a lifetime.

Thanks for joining us, Kim! Good luck and make sure you let us know how it goes.

Prompt 8

For the past 3-4 prompts we have been working towards goals. goals, goals and more goals! i am a firm believer that you can never have too many but the idea is to make them attainable. reaching for the stars is one thing but making every goal you have so huge, you will eventually give up and be dissapointed. so small steps towards achievable goals is what we have been doing and it is working.

for this prompt, we want you to scrap the goals you have reached so far! yes, you heard me right. our 5 months are almost up and we want to see progress. if you haven't reached any yet than scrap a goal you have met in the past and you are prowd of or scrap your progress you have made toward a goal you have right now.

here is what we have done:





i used a little symbolism here...since i got a job teaching through the state, i thought {with some help from Lisa, that a photo of an apple would be perfect. and i had my son model it for me since he told me he was glad i was going to teach b/c teachers are smart and dress nice.

let's welcome....

I just wanted to share some news with everyone....

the amazingly talented and inspiration Lisa T. Howard has joined us...i am not sure if you have been to her blog but if you haven't been should. she has a way with words that  i have never seen before.  

people visit her blog just to "hear her voice".  and when i say that, i mean her words come off the page like she is talking to you.  we found out we had a lot in common and i am not sure if that is good or bad for either of us...but i found her talking a lot about the things we do on this blog...the future, goals, we were are in the world now versus where we want to be....

i find so much inspiration at her blog  so .... stay tuned for her inspiration with us here on the Forward Progress blog.
