Carpe Diem

Wednesday, July 24, 2013



There is a lot to be said for spontaneity, variety, and a little adventure.
Even small changes make a world of difference.
All too often I find myself doing the same routine,
eating the same foods,
and having the same conversation with different people
{...or sometimes the same people...is that a sign of senility???...}

That's the kind of rut that sets me up for boredom and stagnation.
It's like putting myself in a vacuum and expecting things to happen.
Things don't work that way.

it's time for a change.
stay cool emoticon emoticon emoticon

    LOVE IT... I Live (or would like to think I do) by Carpe Diem... It is about seizing the day! Grab what you can, you don't know what's around the corner.... I just need to remember to put that in to play around who I am, what I eat, and how I move, thanks for the reminder!

    So true! I love eating a variety of foods, but otherwise I do tend to get into habit ruts (same workouts, same stores to shop at, same evening activities at home) and you're absolutely right, little changes can make a world of (positive) difference sometimes! :)

  Hi Sheryl..........
I try to be with my grand-daughters as much as possible. I can always count on at least one great belly-laugh if not more. Their child-like enthusiasm is contagious!!!
