...sometimes comes in the form of an orange box.

Ok, now that we have that random and deeply profound thought out of our way...we can proceed on to typical Monday things. Actually, I'm going to go back to that thought! You should just see the shoes that came in the box. Cute. Very cute. Just take my word for it:)

But moving on... It's Monday today! (yes, another profound thought) And with Monday comes the start of my new exciting plan. So without further comment, here are my goals;
  • Practice music for 1 hour everyday (split between piano, violin and guitar)
  • Run 3 times 
  • Read with the little boys every night
Oh, and if you ever have trouble with the fitness aspect of working out or running...just get an awesome little brother who constantly awes you with his determination. Then arm yourself with a little competition, but DON'T try to beat him...this only ends in frustration (and inferiority as you realize that your brother can out run, lift, bench, and out squat you. But then you'll comfort yourself with the fact that this is good. He's a guy and it's good for him to be better then you. It makes him more of a him respect, etc. So then you realize that being the good sister you really actually let him beat you.) But, do your very best, and try to keep up! Be there. Right next to him. When he gives 100%, you give 110%. Push him to more reps. It's fun, it keeps you going, and then in turn they'll push you, get you to do more then you normally would. Trust me, brothers make the best spotters:) 

What are your goals? *smile*

Oh, and here's a verse to think about.

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: 
that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—
we know that we have what we asked of him." 
1 John 5:14-15
