Where your journey is

I sometimes have to remind myself of this.
I have found myself blaming myself for not being where I think I should be at this point in my life.
Have I not done something that I should have to move myself further along in my life?
Should I have done something differently?

I saw this one and thought this is it.
I haven't done things wrong, in total.  
I may have done somethings incorrectly in the past and may again in the future, but I do believe this is telling me that even with this, there is a purpose to be found in everything that has moved me upon the journey of my life. 

Have you seen this in your life?
Have you thought about this before, or is this the first time you are being asked to think about it?

Veteran's Day 2018

I know that tomorrow is the day we "officially " celebrate Veteran's Day tomorrow, but in reality we should be celebrating our Veteran's every day.

There are just so many who have served this country, and served her honorably, that we need to remember.  I'm sure you have heard this before, so much so that I'm afraid it's become a cliche BUT

Freedom isn't Free

Please, the next time you see a veteran, say thank you.
And remember that their families serve just as they do.  
They too deserve your thanks.

They give up so much to make sure that we are free to do all the things that we do.  
They miss holidays and family events.  They miss sicknesses, recoveries, deaths and even births with their servicemen and women.

To all those who have served, those I know and those I have not met ... 
Thank you for your service.

What you plant today

I'm sure you have heard this many times before, but just a reminder from me (and to remind myself as well).

We need to remember that life doesn't always go the way we want it to go, but if we are planting the seeds in other's lives, things can be changed.  Just not always immediately.

We can't be discouraged by slow change.
We need to be encouraged by changes that we see.

Embrace the seeds that you are planting today.
Just make sure that you are cultivating and nourishing those seeds every day.

Note to our girls

Lets keep reminding ourselves and our daughters, granddaughters, nieces and even that little girl who lives next door.

We need to encourage them to be themselves and not be swayed or bullied to be what they are not.

I have always advocated for my kids, and no that doesn't mean I've been a bully where they are concerned.
BUT I have always told them that they can be and do anything that they set their mind to and to not let anyone tell them that they can't do something because they aren't "good enough".

Courage Counts

Inspiration Wednesday?

So many things have been going on of late, I think we need to be reminded of the following.

Sometimes I think that people feel that once they succeed in something there is nothing left to do.  They think that they can sit back and do nothing more.  They are done.

Some feel that when they fail, they are finished.  They have nothing more to contribute.  Their failure in one thing means that they will fail in everything.

But as you can see Winston Churchill shows us that none of that matters in the long run.
It is that little thing called courage that matters most.

Love Yourself

I think that Buddha had this one right.

There are many people in the world today that only think of themselves.  
They are only willing to do something if it benefits them.
Perhaps that is why we are in some of the trouble that we are in today.  
Selfishness has taken over.

I do believe though, that there are still many people who think of others too much and they forget that they are important too.

If you are one of these people, please don't forget how important you are and that you deserve this too.
