Great Expectations!!!

My EXPECTATIONS are high…. My ASPIRATIONS are high…. These two words are to me, one in the same.  Some do not share this opinion; they see them as having two completely different meanings and to NEVER confuse the two. I was recently privy to something I had never heard before; some people say that “expectations… Read More Great Expectations!!!

Create More…..

“Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw  Irish playwright (1856-1950) I want this on a button.  A button to wear EVERYDAY!  This is EXACTLY what I needed to read; at EXACTLY the time I needed it. This is where I am at. This excites and motivates me BEYOND… Read More Create More…..

My Prime Directive…….

Apparently I have been spending too much time on the current Star Trek spinoff marathon as I am thinking 2013 “Prime Directive” as an alternative to 2013 “Resolution (s)”. The question I struggle with is how it will differ from my 2012 “Prime Directive”? A change is definitely in order, for the obvious reason as… Read More My Prime Directive…….

Always Forgive…Never Forget!!!

Forgive and forget…… Should we forgive and forget?  Some would say forgiving is the easy part; it’s the forgetting that is the bigger problem. I’m all for forgiving; it is impossible to move forward without forgiving (and it’s the Responsible thing to do!). But I don’t think it is necessary to forget.  Every moment of… Read More Always Forgive…Never Forget!!!

A Well Lived Life……

Why me?  How many times have we all asked ourselves this question?  Embarrassingly enough, I have probably asked myself this more than I want to admit.  We should be asking ourselves Why NOT me? Why not me?  Could that be right?  I think so.  I think we are capable of surpassing even our “known” limits. … Read More A Well Lived Life……

Grace Under Pressure……

Feeling Grace…… To feel grace is to give over your being, your “complete” self to honor or love.  Honor YOURSELF with Grace; love YOURSELF with Grace, almost to the point of reckless abandonment.  Grace enables true BELIEF in self. In my case, Grace is something I am learning, consciously practicing.  Some days are harder than… Read More Grace Under Pressure……

Time marches on….Don’t get left behind!!!

It’s Tuesday!  The week is marching forward.  Are you?  Have you tried to put your disappointments and setbacks behind you to get where you’re going?  It can be hard, but necessary.  Necessary to move on to what could be the best time of your life!  It’s not even a means to an end-I prefer a… Read More Time marches on….Don’t get left behind!!!

The Measurement of Success!!!

“S”…Success Whether or not we are successful in our own eyes is different I think for everybody.  Some days just getting out of bed on time is considered a great success by some; where others may look at that as just the norm, what’s expected. I like to believe individual success should not only be measured… Read More The Measurement of Success!!!

I am NOT a Martyr!!!

I refuse to be a martyr to my own life.   Martyr may sound extreme and I don’t mean a martyr to my death, just a martyr in the sense of struggling with what’s most important and what I need and maybe even what I want. To overcome this, I need to believe I can do… Read More I am NOT a Martyr!!!

Sustain Yourself!!!

Daily Bread….. How do I define MY Daily Bread?  The quiet in the mornings before anyone else is awake, a cup of coffee in my RED cup on the deck, a moment of silence with a free heart and quiet mind, Lauren’s quick wit and laughter (though sometimes at me!), a Tylie kiss, Tim reaching… Read More Sustain Yourself!!!
