Ever wonder why some of those who achieve incredible success, amass fortunes, and enjoy sizzling relationships seem so unlikely?
It's because intelligence, looks, even creativity, come in a distant second place to believing. Achievers achieve because they believed they would, and so the heavens and earth were moved.
I believe in you,
I believe too. I have the tools, I have the drive, I have the need; letting go of the excuses and moving forward.

What if in "heaven," you also have to think of what you want before you get it? You have to start every windfall with your own little blowing? You have to do what you can, with what you've got, to make stuff happen?
Yeah, that's what I said! You're going to totally own the place.
"You have to do what you can, with what you've got, to make stuff happen?" Wow! Talk about a powerful statement! This is my new mantra. I also like the reminder that I have to plan for success, and then work for it. I'm workin' on it!

This is the second time in eight days that I woke up covered in sweat and unable to fall back asleep. I did try, but after changing my pjs, and heading back to bed, all I did was toss and turn. At 2 am, I gave up and got up for the day. Our normal wake up time is 4 am, so I did get some sleep. The bad thing about not getting the proper amount of sleep is my brain is definitely not firing on all cylinders.
For instance, before we left for our morning walk I looked all over but could not find my Activity Tracker, so I used the RunKeeper app on my phone instead. After walking, I found the Spark Tracker right on my desk where I left it. I hope that things go better for the rest of the day.

Don't all those goody-goodies who tell you that life is "how you take it" make you want to scream?!
Me too, but let's have patience with them.
Life's not about how you take it, it's about the glory of living deliberately and crafting circumstances, magnetizing players and forging alliances, leveraging the Universe and engaging the magic so that you can have the sun, the moon, and the stars.
I like the statement that "Life's not about how you take it, it's about the glory of living deliberately and crafting circumstances..."
The past week has been some of the most fun, creatively stimulating, educational, time spent doing what I love; learning new skills, shopping for new gems and stones, spending time with my husband and grandson as well as the opportunity to interact with people from diverse cultures.
Yesterday, my husband and I took a break from Gem Show shopping and classes and took my almost 4 year old grandson to the 22sd Street Gem Show and gave him an introduction to fossils. This venue was just the right size for Aiden. It had plenty of great displays, but not so much as to over whelm him. He had a blast and the vendors were so nice! They took the time to explain what the life form was and in some cases we were able to purchase very inexpensive fossils to start his collection. Aiden was fascinated to see the bone of a very real dinosaur vs. the characters he sees on the cartoon Dinosaur Train.
I am a proud"Wanna Be" I know what I want and will work to make them happen: I want to be able to craft fine jewelry, I want to be able to cut stones, I want to take my business to the next level, I want to be healthy and I want my weight to be in the proper proportion to my height. It is a matter of taking the time to learn, to exercise and follow my plan - no matter how long it takes or what road blocks get in my way. Even when those road blocks are self made.

you know that feeling?
That sense of eagerness for the moment. Optimism for the future. And confidence that you are exactly "when" and where you should be. That feeling that makes dark days lighter and light days brighter. That precedes breakthroughs, conquests, and euphoria.
Yes, that feeling!
Well, it doesn't just come.
You have to give it to yourself.
YEAH! I am going to work towards finding that feeling. I have a polishing class on Tuesday and a soldering class on Saturday, both of will improve my skills and let me get to that next level of jewelry making. Can't wait to incorporate that knowledge with the new stones, cabs, pearls and other goodies we found at the Gem Show this past weekend. Its going to be a great week!
