Let it go, let it go, let it go...

Wednesday, January 01, 2014



2013 has been filled with challenges, some more difficult than others, with a few milestones that made us proud. Two painful losses and a few that filled our hearts to overflowing… As A. A. Milne so poignantly wrote “Sometimes,' said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”



Over all it was a wonderful year as I continued to learn how to live my life to the fullest no matter what!!! That’s the trick I’ve learned and yes it has taken me 66 years to put it into practice… just one of the perks of living a long life.



You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this. ~ Henry David Thoreau



"In terms of days and moments lived, you'll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra.
In one sense, you're just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless." ~Victoria Moran



Good-Bye 2013



Welcome 2014… emoticon and there’s reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last… emoticon "CHEERS"

    My plan is to "lighten up" this year...to especially let things go and to move ahead without all the negatives dragging me down/holding me back. I love your message and the graphics and quotes are just perfect, Linda! Happy New Year and best to you in 2014!! Love, Jeannie
