Keeping in Touch

Today has been another one of those days when my brain works overtime thinking about life.  My life is busy and filled with many blessing. One of those blessing is the ability to fix things - so how do I slow down life.
1.  Put God First
2.  Focus on what is important (me, family, four-legged babies, and friends).

I could list other rules - but the point of this exercise is to keep life simple.  Live by simple rules.

Everyday is a New Beginnng

Everyday is a new beginning ~ so what is new with me?  Today I came to the realization that I can not fix some things, I should focus on the things I can change - and I can change me.  So - my new goal is to make me a better person.

Every year I start with goals and at the end of the year I beat-up myself over the goals I do not meet - rather than celebrating what I do achieve.  So starting today - I celebrate all that is good and let go of all that is bad.

I will live and love by the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
Enthusiasm is on of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with your might. Put your whole soul into it...stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm ~

I ran 2 miles tonight - felt great, back was good.

Life is good! I can not say that often enough. I have everything I could ever need or want ~ we are at a point in our life where we can help others.

Wonder what changes as we age? When we were young we wanted everything. Now I often think if I win the lottery how I would help others.

Is that a sign I have matured? Is it a sign that I have no needs?

Not sure what it means ~ but it sure feels good.
