Love like you've never been hurt.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Live like it's heaven on earth."

emoticon There is more than one road to your dreams. Don't worry if everyone else seems to be getting there faster. Those who are zooming along on the highway to success can hit huge traffic jams.
emoticon The side streets you may be taking are often more scenic, emoticon less stressful emoticon and faster!
Relax and enjoy the ride. You're on your way. You are on the right path!
Hope you are reaching high for those May goals!

I'm still holding off on planting even though we had a record breaking 86 degrees here yesterday???? And the dandelions are like a beautiful yellow ocean all down the block!!

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
Have a great weekend and hope you are setting healthy goals for May! Will you dance around the Maypole??

emoticon Everything you have experienced has made you the amazing person that you are. It has prepared you for the next step: living your dream!

We had record 80 degrees temps on Friday and 6 inches of wet, heavy snow this morning. I love Montana in the Spring!!

emoticon Glad you stopped by my rose blog. So many roses really amazing. I think all the rain helped them along. I have been hearing that we are going to be getting more rain too, much needed. Not cold here though.
Please be careful out there if you have to go out, no fun sliding on ice at all.

Be careful my good friend and hope you have a great week. emoticon emoticon

emoticon Let Spring come! emoticon
Spring isn't just a season; it's a state of mind! It's believing in possibilities and reveling in options. It's being energized by beginnings and lifted up by hope. It's watching something beautiful unfold: your dreams! It's looking at the world in a whole new light. Try it and you may feel rejuvenated, restored and reborn...you may feel brand new!
