Its not that some people have will power and some dont. Its that some people
are ready to change and others are not." James Gordon, M.D.
"Its a new year and that offers the possibility of a refreshing commencement and the creation of a revitalized life.
Today make a commitment to live in the moment and be the artist of your exceptional, more purposeful, and
significant life. Always remember that you are the artist and you have the freedom to paint the portrait of
your existence in any way you wish. There are endless possibilities for your life. Within you lies the
power to create the life you desire. What is your initial plan for the invention of your new life?"
~ From Your Daily Walk with The Great Minds Authored By Richard A. Singer Jr. MA


Today I will delete from my diary two days:
yesterday and tomorrow...
Yesterday was to learn and tomorrow will be
the consequence of what I can do today.
Today I will face life with the conviction
that this day will not ever return.
Today is the last opportunity I have to live intensely,
as no one can assure me that I will see tomorrow's sunrise.
Today I will be brave enough not to let any opportunity pass me by,
my only alternative is to succeed.
Today I will invest my most valuable resource:my time,
in the most transcendental work: my life.
Today I will spend each minute passionately to make
of today a different and unique day in my life.
Today I will defy every obstacle that appears
on my way, trusting that I will succeed.
Today I will resist pessimism and will conquer the world with a smile,
with the positive attitude of expecting always the best.
Today I will make of every ordinary task
a sublime expression.
Today I will have my feet on the ground, understanding reality
and the stars' gaze to invent my future.
Today I will take the time to be happy and
will leave my footprints and my presence in the hearts of others.
Today, I invite you to begin a new season where we can dream
that everything we undertake is possible and
we fulfill it, with joy and dignity.

    All we have is NOW; that is why it is called the "present". Yesterday is gone with no chance to "do over". Tomorrow is but a notion. Cherish your present every day.

If each grain of sand were to say:
One grain does not make a mountain,
There would be no land.

If each drop of water were to say:
One drop does not make an ocean,
There would be no sea.

If each note of music were to say:
Each note does not make a symphony,
There would be no melody.

If each word were to say:
One word does not make a library,
There would be no book.

If each brick were to say:
One brick does not make a wall,
There would be no house.

If each seed were to say:
One seed does not make a field,
There would be no harvest.

If each of us were to say:
One person does not make the difference,
There would never be love and peace on earth.

You and I do make the difference,
Begin today and make the difference.

IT'S A NEW BEGINNING ... Time to Choose the Possibilities.....

Sunday, January 01, 2012

IT'S A NEW BEGINNING ... Time to Choose the Possibilities.....

Some people sit some people try;
Some people laugh some people cry;
Some people will some people wont;
Some people do some people dont.
Some people believe and develop a plan;
Some people doubt never think that they can;
Some people face hurdles and give it their best;
Some people back down when faced with a test.
Some people complain of their miserable lot;
Some people are thankful for all that theyve got;
And when its all over when it comes to an end
Some people lose out and some people win.
We all have a choice we all have a say;
We are spectators in life or we get in and play;
Whichever we choose how we handle lifes game;
The choices are ours no one else is to blame.
(Author Unknown)

When your dreams start to seem so impossible,
When roadblocks are all you can see
Look beyond all the problems that face you
Dont limit your thoughts to the present
Or solutions you have learned from the past;
Remember to keep looking forward
You may find the answer at last.
It is YOU who determines your future
How your journey through tomorrow will be;
To fill all your days with adventure,
Dare to see what no one else dares to see.
So never let obstacles stop you
Or keep you from doing your part;
Have faith that your dreams are all possible
If you truly believe in your heart.

    Thanks for reminding me. I keep complaining this semester about all the work I have to do, instead of being thankful for the money it brings, the fact that people find my work so good that they want me to work for them, the experience it gives me...
Keep reminding us these choices we have. I keep forgetting emoticon

Every day is Christmas when you have the kind of mind,
That stores up all the goodness and the sweetness it can find
When you don't need an occasion, to spread a bit of cheer,
But just keep on a-giving, of yourself throughout the year
Every day is Christmas, with a gaily wrapped surprise,
When you've learned to see the friendship in someone else's eyes.
When you try a little harder, and complain a little less,
Holding fast to all the fervor of the faith that you possess
Every day is Christmas, when you've found that you can be
More concerned with words like 'you' and less with 'I' and 'me'.
When it's fun to do a favor, and to lend a helping a hand,
When being understood means less, than when you understand
Every day is Christmas, with a beauty deeply cast,
When you find it doesn't matter, if you're first or if you're last
When you can face your conscience, and be glad of who you are,
Then every day is Christmas, for you'll have friends near and far.

~ Author Unknown

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

appreciate all your help and support as we journey here together....
wishing you and yours all the blessings of christmas and may they follow you throughout the new year and give you peace love and joy..............
blessings and hugs..................lita

My Holiday Wish......

Friday, December 16, 2011

My Holiday Wish......

My holiday wish is that we may
See good in those who pass our way;
Find in each a worthy trait
That we shall gladly cultivate;
See in each one passing by
The better things that beautify
A softly spoken word of cheer,
A kindly face, a smile sincere;
I hope each day that we may view
The things that warm one's heart anew;
The kindly deed that can't be bought
That only from good are wrought,
A burden lightened here and there,
A brother lifted from despair,
The aged ones freed from distress;
The lame, the sick, brought happiness.
Grant that before each sun has set
We'll witness deeds we can't forget;
A soothing hand to one in pain,
A sacrifice for love not gain;
A word to ease the troubled mind
Of one whom fate has dealt unkind.
So, friend, my wish is that we may
See good in all who pass our way.

~By Phil Perkins
