Today's Blessing

May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.

Plan your success - work your success

Your success will be determined on the drawing board. All you need is a plan, a road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.

Somewhere there is a map of how it can be done, for at all times, it's better to have a method.

Planning will bring your future into the present so you can do something about it now. Find a good system and it will shorten the road to your goal.

Divide your movements into easy to do sections. If you falter or fail, divide your movements again.

You can't get lost on a straight road.

Memorial Day - 2012

Several years ago I had the honor of visiting Washington, DC,  Arlington National Cemetary and also the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  While this was not my first trip to Washington, DC it was the first trip that I could spend time sightseeing.

It was a emotional experience to visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier - someplace where I had heard about for years but had never visited.  I was amazed to watch the devotion, dedication and somber ceremony.  It touched my heart and made so proud to be an American.

I think that it is so easy to say "I am an American" but I am the first to admit that I take it for granted.  I am so proud to be an American and live in a country where I have the freedom to be who I am.  As an American woman I have the freedom to achieve my dreams.

My father was a WWII veteran as well as my step-father.  I have only heard stories of what they did or what they saw.  Unfortunately - I will never have the chance to ask them or thank them for what they sacrificed for me.

Freedom isn't free so this is just my tribute to all those who have fought for my freedom and for all of those who are fighting today for freedom of so many others.

Happy Memorial Day Y'all and...

God Bless America!

This is a post from Memorial Day 2011 but the sentiments are heartfelt each and every day!

The only thing that stands between you and what you want from life, is simply the will to pursue it and the faith to believe that it is possible.

You can have anything on earth that you want, once you mentally accept the fact that you can have it.  

If you want success, begin thinking of yourself as a success. The feeling of being successful has to come first. 

If you have a deep inner conviction that you will always have all that you need, if you actually feel prosperous, it will be so.

Only your mind sets your limits.

You have to make your own opportunities. Your future is not a matter of chance. It's a matter of your choice.

It's not something you wait for. It's something you must actively pursue.

Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.

Opportunity can come disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. 

Start today, right where you are. Distant fields will always appear greener. Yet, golden opportunities are all around you.

You can live a great dream if you pursue it.
