The desire to pursue your dream

Thursday, April 11, 2013



What is your dream? To play with your kids? To sit comfortably in an airplane seat? To run a 1/2 marathon or marathon? Maybe you just want to look better or feel better.

It really doesn't matter what your dream is, as long as you do something every day that will help get you in that direction. It's going to take as long as it takes. So many times in the past, I would have given up long before now because it's taking so long. It took years to put this weight on & it's going to take as long as it takes to get it off. That's just the way it is.

Go to your success.



There aren't any tricks, just a lot of hard work.



Don't ever, ever forget -- you are worth it!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Enjoy the beauty . . .

Tuesday, April 09, 2013



There are so many beautiful things for us to enjoy -- the colors of a sunrise or sunset, the sound of the ocean as the waves come onto the beach, the sound of a child's laugh, the smell of blooming flowers, the birds singing in the trees.

I didn't used to be a "stop & smell the roses" kind of girl -- I was too busy. After having cancer, my perspective on life really changed. Life was good before, but it's so much better now that I've learned to stop & enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

Let go of stress -- it's so bad for you anyway!!



Today's challenge: Look for the beauty around you today.




Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I feel the same way! After coming so close to death, I appreciate everything and everybody. I make more of an effort to 'like' everyone, to forgive, and not hold grudges. Life is funny and you have no expiration, so live while you can!

    I wasn't a stop and smell the roses kind of gal until I raised a special needs child. That experience changed my life's view tremendously. I'm not the same woman I once was. There are so many little things in the world to be grateful for.

Staying positive.

Monday, April 08, 2013



Sometimes staying positive is difficult when it seems like the world is falling down around your ears. In the midst of difficulties, it's important to find the silver linings in those dark clouds. There are always silver linings -- sometimes you have to search diligently for them.

One of the first things you can do is to smile.



I know that sounds crazy, but there is something so satisfying about smiling even if you don't feel like it. It really helps.



Always look for the light. It is there!!

Give thanks & take nothing for granted.



Living a grateful life is monumental in staying positive.

Live, love, laugh! Laughter is indeed the best medicine.



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
