I am planning to retire about mid 2014 if all plans go as expected. After that I hope to continue working at something that I would normally consider a hobby. - Not sure what this will be yet, but I am looking at opportunities.

We need to focus on "planting one seed" (one small step forward) to grow our successes every day.

I read this in the current issue of Woman's World magazine and loved the message!
Sheila

Believe and Achieve! "I can" and "I will" are so much stronger than "I can't" and "i won't." Hope always outlasts doubt. Negativity only has the power to hold you back - but positivity has the power to make things happen.
