Surgery Postponed but Website Updated!!

I am re-posting some of my old blog posts to keep the history of my blog alive. Back in 2010, I was preparing to have surgery to repair the torn meniscus in my knee.

This post appeared originally on my blog on June 21, 2010.

Well, my knee surgery was supposed to be on Friday but it had to be postponed for some tests before I have the surgery.  It is rescheduled for later this month.  Hopefully, I will get to have it then!!

Since I didn’t have surgery on Friday, I made some updates to the website this weekend!  A lot of updates and some great new stuff added.


I am still getting organized but I am making progress!

As readers of my blog know, I have struggled for years with actually getting organized.  I have been through every planner or planning method I could find over the years!

I have found something that finally works!  I have downloaded the PDF Version of the Best Self Company’s Best Self Planner.  The PDF and the Best Self Journal are meant to be used as a paper planner but those don’t work for me so I converted the PDF into a digital planner by importing the PDF into the Goodnotes app on my IPAD!  This is actually working for me!  I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I am making continual progress on my goals for the next three months!

The Self Journal Website:

The Self Journal PDF


The journal keeps me focused on the important things and to celebrate the stuff I did get done that day/week so that I don’t focus all the time on the stuff I haven’t gotten to yet but instead spend some time celebrating what I did finish!  This helps me to not get discouraged by all that still needs to be done.

I also like the gratitude sections to help me appreciate what I have and the good things in my life.  I thought when I first started using the BSJ (Best Self Journal) that this would be one of those sections I wouldn’t really use but I do enjoy it.  I am feeling better now.  Even when things don’t go as planned, the Gratitude Sections help me to be thankful and hopeful instead of always thinking of what I don’t have or what I want for the future.  Sometimes you just need to refocus so that you can appreciate the now and not always be thinking of what you can have in the future.  I need to focus on appreciating the journey and not the end result some of the time.

More to come soon,
