Fitting it all in

Do you ever feel like a puzzle piece in search of that illusive spot to fit in a larger picture?
I know I have.   Keeping balance between n work, home, relationships etc. all are that "BIG PICTURE and I'm a part of it all.

Realizing if I take time and realize I do have a place in it all helps keep focus

Like Pippen, you can find your "Corner of the Sky"   Trust me you do fit in

Starting Points

This week I began another chapter if not a full book in my life: I'm in graduate school

During a community wide welcoming event this morning the leader handed some one "An entire forest"  though the actual item was an acorn.

Both her explanation and the idea hit me hard - Even a huge forest starts from  seeds or nuts

The "nut" of grad school has been growing in my head/heart for years and now it's blooming. OK a seedling so far but the forest is started

We all can hold a forest in our hands, nurture it and help it grow into a full fledged tree fill space

Lets do it,  together

Believe

"I believe that good things are going to happen"  This is something I say often on days with great hope and days less inspiring.

Think good thoughts, say them and then they will happen.  Believe in your self and the power of acceptance.

Not only do I believe you'll do well I know it

Go On

Last week we we're sent on  a "mission" from mom taking us to Sarasota and then Stuart Florida

It could have been a chore but we both looked at is as a part of our fun journey

Taking our pup we enjoyed a pet friendly hotel,  watched the sun set over the Gulf Coast and cows living in the middle of Florida

Sure we had a time frame to get all 475 miles done so we looked at is as enjoying the journey

Do you look at the challenges in life that way too?

Time away

For those like me living in Southern Florida it seems like summer each day.  We know seasons by the number of "snow birds" coming and going.
Oh those snow birds, they know how to take time for themselves.

Do you and I?  I admit to being a workaholic yet I do take time for me.
Rest, reading, stopping to smell those roses are all as important too

Remember to take time for you please

Worry

How much time i spent worrying never got me anywhere.  Now I reflect, plan and prepare.  
I'm no Pollyanna singing "What's the use of worrying it's never been worthwhile so pack up those troubles in an old kit bag and smile, smile smile"   

Let's keep focus on what we WILL do, how to fix what didn't work and move on toward better good or efforts

Hey even Alfred E. Neuman knows it "What me worry?"

Directions

We bought furniture from Ikea. While putting it together I wanted to read the instructions first.
KD said he's done this before so we plowed in. Two hours later with frustration we read those pages of HOW TO.

There's much of our lives that does NOT come with instructions or does it?  No one penned how to love my man however we both know couples that have been strongly together for some time

We wont pattern ourselves after them but follow the lead of what they do and did


In Twelve Step programs there is talk of "Using the tools laid at your feet"  Dear friend the instructions on life are out there, just find the right publisher for your  product
