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…  🙂

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)

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 !!!
