Go For It
“If you wait for others to tell you what to do with your life –
it won’t be your life you’re living … So … Just go for it!”
Penny L Howe, 2014
For so many of us, Monday seems filled with too much to do, too many things to worry about and the beginning of a long week ahead. Here’s another perspective to consider:
The Blessing of Your Life
The blessing we are given, begin with each new day
wondrous things can happen brightening the way.
The laughter of our children, the greeting of old friends,
this day is ours for molding, from beginnings to the ends.
With the start of each week, a gift has been received,
labor hard, laugh and love but mostly be well pleased.
“Life is a joy, your choice to make the best of each day you are given -
which is a blessing, in and of itself, to be cherished.”
Penny L Howe, 2014
My wish is for you to have a wonderful week ahead. Take time to be grateful for that which you do have.
In life there are many reasons to keep going, to make a difference, to be successful, to hope and care, but they all pale besides the most obvious reason of all …
… you must believe in “Self” first. Really believe that you have a personal worth, a value in and of itself.
The starting point from which you grow.
But, when you believe in you, you become a guide for yourself
It’s not easy. It does seem that too often, we make mistakes, fail, hesitate, choose poorly and so forth. These are life experiences – better known as life’s learning lessons because we do learn through our errors. The thing to remember is to have the courage to get up and keep going.
trust me on this one …
it’s a lot easier to get back up when you believe you can do it!
Take it from one who knows,
“The single most important person to believe in is yourself … always!”

Glass Half EmptyI’m simply not sure how it happened It was there for all who could see, But now it has changed things all rearranged My glass is half empty to me.
~I’ve always seen things from the plus side A most agreeable place one can be But now alas I view all I lack And wonder what next I will see.
~I’m hoping it soon will be half full The glass that so fills with delight But right now I despair It just isn’t there Completely gone from my sight

Even during the times when it seems as if things are more than you can handle, hang in there. During adversity there will be others who care, showing up to make the difference, if you let them.
Keep your heart open, your courage strong, and your faith undiminished. Know this too shall pass. Be good to others and take care of you. Remember, if you don’t take care of yourself, you may not be there for the ones who need you!
With great affection,
