"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

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?"

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

Your story

We all have a story, some long some not so. They are ours to tell and  live

Let's respect each others stories, journeys.

I know mine has many twists and turns while I'm not always proud of each story I'm not ashamed to call them MINE.

Be Yourself

For crying out loud, stop comparing and start living!  You'll be happier with your life, I guarantee. 

This is crucial: the most difficult thin

g in the world is to be who you are not. Pretending and trying to be someone else is the official pastime of the human race.

The easiest thing in the world is to be yourself
