"Whatever you want in life, start today. Not tomorrow - today. Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning. Your happiness depends on starting today - every day." - Jonathan Lockwood Huie

LESSONS FROM A SNOWMAN
It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy. Hold your ground, even when the heat is on. Wearing white is always appropriate. Winter is the best of the four seasons. It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection. There's nothing better than a foul weather friend. The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul. It's not the size of the carrot, but the placement that counts. We're all made up of mostly water. You know you've made it when they write a song about you. Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize! Avoid yellow snow. Don't get too much sun. It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet. It's fun to hang out in your front yard. There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.
"Time always moves forward whether you move forward or not. Your most effective strategy is to make use of each moment as soon as it arrives. There's no end to what you can accomplish if you'll just go ahead and get going. Now is what you have, so make now your time to begin." -- Ralph Marston
Just stopping by to wish you a great week, Spark friend! Keep your goals in mind, and do something every day that will move you closer to reaching them. I'm here if you need support! Hugs, Pixie
Q: What do reindeer say before telling you a joke ?
"You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time." --William E. Holler
Just stopping by to wish you a great "rest of the week", Spark friend! Keep pushing...keep doing your best...one day and one choice at a time. Never forget that you are worth every effort! Hugs, Pixie
There was once a great czar in Russia named Rudolph the Red. He stood looking out the windows of is palace one day while his wife, the Czarina Katerina, sat nearby knitting. He turned to her and said, "Look my dear, it has begun to rain!" Without even looking up from her knitting she replied, "It's too cold to rain. It must be sleeting." The Czar shook his head and said, "I am the Czar of all the Russias, and Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"
âWe all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.â - Steve Maraboli

I made myself a snowball, As perfect as could be, I thought I'd keep it as a pet, And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas, And a pillow for its head, Then last night it ran away, But first - it wet the bed! (~Shel Silverstein)
