What is it worth...

I have been in a better place and have found myself reaching the goals that I set at the beginning of this new school year- I am spending more time with my hubby, I am saying no to extras at work, I am not staying late most nights (and when I do, I am actually doing a boot camp with coworkers!) I am feeling better about life and enjoying things for myself. I am still trying to balance having my mom visit every other month for her job.

I have been in a better place and have found myself reaching the goals that I set at the beginning of this new school year- I am spending more time with my hubby, I am saying no to extras at work, I am not staying late most nights (and when I do, I am actually doing a boot camp with coworkers!) I am feeling better about life and enjoying things for myself. I am still trying to balance having my mom visit every other month for her job. I am working on cutting back on my go-to caffeine intake of soda. I am also looking into a doctor to help me figure out my heartburn issues that are starting to pop up more.

So cheers to the new times and the rekindling of what looks to be a promising journey with twists and turns!

If every morning, You can find a reason to say,
“Yes, it’s going to be a beautiful day.”
And every day, you find a reason to say,
“Yes, it is a beautiful day.”
And every night, you find a reason to say,
“Yes, it was a beautiful day.”
Then one day, You’ll look back and easily say,
“Yes...it was a beautiful life.”

I had sent this quite awhile ago, but I felt it was worthy enough to send it again. Hope you enjoy it!!

*****************TRAIN OF LIFE***********************

Some folks ride the train of life, Looking out the rear.
Watching miles of life roll by, And marking every year.
They sit in sad remembrance, Of wasted days gone by.
And curse their life for what it was, And hang their head and cry.

But I don't concern myself with that, I took a different vent.
I look forward to what life holds, And not what has been spent.
So strap me to the engine, As securely as can be.
I want to be out on the front, To see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change, Blowing in my face.
I want to see what life unfolds, As I move from place to place.
I want to see whats coming up. No looking at the past.
Life's too short for yesterday, It moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy, While you are looking back.
Go up front, and you may find, Your life has jumped the track.
Its all right to remember, That's part of history.
But up front's where its happening. There's so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living, Is not where we have been,
It's looking ever forward, To another year and ten.
It's searching all the byways, Never should you refrain.
For if you want to live your life, You gotta drive the train.
---Marv Hardin~~~

As I read this, I realized, I cannot live in the past, and I cannot foresee the future,
But I can live for every second, and every minute of today.
""""Enjoy today, and everyday of your life."""""

Most touching line said by a friend:

"When I die, don't come near my body,
because my hand might not be able to wipe your tears anymore."

We are all setting goals, on teams, or otherwise. I came across this and thought it was appropriate for those goals we would like to achieve.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Goals that are not
written down are only wishes...
Goals are dreams
without deadlines.
The most important thing
about goals is having one!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
emoticon emoticon We can & will achieve those goals emoticon emoticon
