Crossroads

The journey through life is made up of many different roads. Sometimes we come upon a smooth road which leads us straight to the desired destination with little or no effort at all. More often, it will be a rocky, crooked road with corners, detours, and steep uphill climbs.

And now and then we get to a crossroads, the most confusing of them all.

Most likely, we stop and look at the options, not knowing what to do. Will this road lead me to the happiness I have been longing for? What if it turns out to be the wrong decision? Only hindsight will tell. But, one thing is certain: In order to find out, you have to take the risk, and choose one path. Otherwise you will never know.

The worst outcome of all is to not make a decision, but to just stay there confused…and then thinking for the rest of your life about a risk you didn’t take.

There are no guarantees in life. There are only choices you make…  🙂

Sweet Springtime

‘Spring is nature’s way of saying  “Let’s party!” ‘ — Robin Williams

Wishing you the most wonderful party ever …..
And all the joy your heart can hold !!  🙂

**********

I woke this morning to the most awesome sound ….. birds singing their beautiful melodies at the dawn of day, so happy and carefree.  Do they know something we don’t?  Yes, the gray winter is finally gone and sweet springtime is here …..

The days will warm, and the sun will show her face more often, and when you look around you, you see trees and flowers rejuvenating in colorful dress, and yesterday I heard a sound I had almost forgotten ….. a lawnmower  :-).

Spring (and love) is in the air ….. It will fill your day with happy feelings and put a smile on your face ….. Let it be a renewal, or even a new beginning for better things to come …..  :-).

SPRING,  THE  SWEET  SPRING          by Thomas Nashe  (1600)

yellowflower311           yellowflower11          yellowflower21

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing,
Cuckoo,  jug, jug,  pu-we,  to-witta-woo!

The palm and May make country houses gay,
Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,
And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay,
Cuckoo,  jug, jug,  pu-we,  to-witta-woo!

The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,
Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit
In every street,  these tunes our ears do greet,
Cuckoo,  jug,  jug,  pu-we,  to-witta-woo!
Spring, the sweet spring!

Motivation — Not Just A Ten-Letter-Word

‘People often say that motivation doesn’t last.  Well, neither does bathing.  That’s why we recommend it daily.’ — Zig Ziglar   🙂

HOW  TO  GET ….. AND  THEN  STAY  MOTIVATED

Thinking about starting a new project, endeavor, job, business, exercise program?  No matter what it is, applying the following simple suggestions will help you with keeping motivated on the way…..

1.  Keep a positive attitude and surround yourself with positive and motivated people ….. You can’t choose or control your circumstances sometimes, but you can choose your attitude towards them.  When obstacles arise, use them as stepping stones to move forward, rather than setbacks.

2.  Treat your mind like a parachute ….. It works best open.  Broaden your horizon and keep learning new things.  It will give you confidence when starting a new project.  Once you started a new project, track your progress.  Not only will it stimulate and motivate you when you see how far you’ve come, but it will also help you with making adjustments when you see what works and what doesn’t work.

3.  Help others ….. One of the best motivators is to help other people get motivated.  Seeing others do well will in turn motivate you to do the same.

4.  Just do it!!! ….. Once you get started and you see the progress you are making, and the success you are achieving, you just want to continue on your path.  So, if you ask me, out of the four suggestions, this is the most important one.

JUST  DO  IT !!!

Single And Happy … By Choice … :-)

‘I love being married.  It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.’ — Rita Rudner  🙂

fitwithandreacom-final-edits-july-30th-019

Recently, while having a little time during a bad ice storm, I was browsing through some blogs and got inspired to write this by one lady’s musings about her dating experiences which, according to her, often ended after the first date, and she was wondering why the guys ended up asking for a second date, without ever intending to even call her back.

Now, there can be many reasons for that.  The most likely to me would be that he just wasn’t that much into her, and didn’t have the heart to let her know face to face, but rather decided to leave her hanging for a few days or maybe even weeks while she was waiting for any little sign from him.  And then, only after agonizing back and forth about why he hadn’t called her back, finally realizing that it would be best to move on if she didn’t want to end up an old spinster desperately waiting for that one phone call  :-).

Now, a lot of women like myself, who are just slightly over 29  :-), and have seen the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, when it comes to men, have arrived at a point in our lives where we are very comfortable in our own skin.  We are single and happy ….. and not dating ….. by choice.  Just don’t want to go through the soap opera of dating somebody we know darn well right from the beginning is not going to lead anywhere …..

And so we decided to leave the trials and tribulations of a first, possible second, or even third date to others, and are perfectly happy with that decision.  Been there, done that, didn’t like it, won’t do it again.  We know exactly what we want out of life and, after often neglecting to do so in our younger years, and then paying a hefty price for it, we decided to start paying attention to a man’s actions to see whether they show the love and respect we deserve, and sometimes, that’s just not a pretty picture …..

Don’t get me wrong, we love men, absolutely ….. but we also respect and love ourselves.  So, until that special person comes around the corner,  we just opt out of dating altogether and are perfectly happy with it.  Now, when that person shows up, it’s a different story ….. and we’ll know exactly when we see him …..  :-).
