I listened to someone talking about their lifestyle the other day. They’ve really held on to God and are pursuing their dreams and have ben very successful as a result.
He was asks the question, “Mark, what does your everyday life look like?”. He went on to explain how he lives out every day and, in particular, what his day had been like so far. I was challenged to re-look at what I envisage my days to be like. The things I am able to change like my attitude, my faith levels, my joy level and what I’d just love to spend every day doing.
So, I thought I’d outline what my day looked like today and how it’s getting closer and closer to what I’d like every day to look like, as I hold onto God and start loving His plans instead of trying to bring my own to pass.
I woke up at about 6:30. I was just naturally awake and so I lay talking to God about all the things that crossed my mind as we chatted.
I then got up and read another chapter of the amazing book ‘Money with a Mission‘ by Leroy Thompson. God is really teaching me that the REAL purpose of money is to see that people get to know about how much He loves them.
I was so excited about what He revealed to me that I sat Frans down and talked to him about it for 15 minutes, while he was still trying to wake up. 🙂
Then we had a lovely bowl of oats for breakfast (which was so warm that we had to put the aircon on to cool down afterwards).
After getting ready for the day, I shot some footage for a new set of videos I’ve launched. (I LOVE sharing what’s worked for me with everyone else!)
When the shooting was done, I went down to the pool to swim with Frans. He’d left earlier and gone to the gym that’s downstairs in the building.
I saw my friend Debs and we sat and talked for a while, until I simply got too hot and decided to do my laps in the pool. 3 sets of 5 double lengths gives me a really good cardio workout and I really love doing it. It’s like you’re in your own little world when you’re under the water, which helps to push through the initial soreness of your muscles until you get into a rhythm and then it’s just down to endurance.
We came upstairs at around 3 and then realised that we needed to go and get some milk. We’ve been meaning to get our hair cut and we also wanted to see any new movies that were out. All 3 of these things can be found at Treasure Coast Mall, so we jumped into the car and went to see the latest Spiderman film.
On the way over the bridge a storm was approaching and the clouds were the darkest I have ever seen.
Yet, on the way home after the movie, all of those clouds were gone
The movie wasn’t great – just seemed to be a re-hash of all the previous ones….
After that we stopped off at KFC to have their buffet for $7.99. It may be that KFC use ’11 herbs and spices’ , but US KFC tastes different to UK KFC – strangest thing.
Once we got home, we realised that we may have seen the movie, but we forgot to get the haircut and the milk 🙂
We’re just rounding off the day by watching 2 of our favourite shows on TV, before going to bed at the end of a fabulous day.
