It's been a while but I'm back and earned another motivational Pic!!

Monday, November 05, 2012

This is one pic I truly believe I really earned...the hard way. I have really been letting myself stand in the way of really everything lately, in all areas of my life not just my spark goals. Yes I know I had a lot of "life happening" all around me but I have to be honest and say I, really cannot use this as an excuse- in fact I don't think anyone should. You can't stop life from "happening" around you and it's always going to continue, the question is are you going use it as an excuse to not reaching for the stars and grabbing what you desire? Life is something you can truly never plan for, I know some people think they can but there's always a twist thrown in now and then am I right? Thinking about this brings these wise Sheryl Crow lyrics to mind "LIFE IS WHAT HAPPENS WHILE YOU'RE MAKING PLANS, ALL THAT YOU NEED IS RIGHT HERE IN YOUR HANDS" I have probably listened to this song 100's of times and thought I got the meaning but today I can say I honestly do finally relate and get them. So I'm vowing to do my best and promise myself to not use LIFE as an excuse anymore. I'm going to stop standing in the way of my goals and dreams and blaming it on unplanned things happening in my life. I am going to really stop each day and truly take 10 minutes to enjoy my life as it is happening at the moment and thank the universe for everything it's giving me. Having just had a birthday, I think it's way long overdue for me to take responsibility for all aspects of my life and really continue to grow as a person. I am not sayng "grow up" I feel that one can never truly stop growing as a individual if you truly want to, and we all need to keep a part of that child that keeps the wonder and excitement alive in our lives.

    I am all for keeping a part of that child that keeps the wonder and excitement alive in our lives. I am all for eliminating excuses. I am also all for moving forward and leaving past failures behind me.
    Good job on your virtual races.

    "Life" does happen daily, and may not always go the way we plan or the way we think it should or the way that we hoped that it would. But we all have choices as to how we react or how we deal with it.

    Loved this blog, and love you!! emoticon
