Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain.

Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.

Was supposed to be a Spring day in the yard, however it was so cold that our tolerance was limited and we were all in agreement too cold to spend more than a few hours outside working!

Month 5 of the year is approaching, so a good time for me to take stock of where I am at with goals set for the year.

Have a great Sunday,

The craziness of SPRING: temps in the high 60s then in the 30/40s and rain rain again. Good to see the Spring flowers are at least liking the water dropping from the sky. The rest of us not so much, as soon as you think you that it's time to get out and play, the skies open up and it's back to a Winter jacket and indoor exercising.

Nearing the end of Hump Day and ready for the slide into the weekend, warm weather and family time over the upcoming Holiday.

A quarter of the year gone are you a quarter of the way to any goals set for 2017?

Have a great rest of the week,

As always it's amazing to see the force of mother nature when just driving by the roads with ditches and how fast the current of water is moving. Hope no flooding any where over the weekend.
Does make for challenges to get outdoors and enjoy the Spring weather, lined raincoats are a must in the midwest as temps were anywhere from 40 to 70s. Fog also adds to that mysterious London feel.
Ready for a new week and soon a new month.

Sometimes, said Pooh, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Was hoping to get outside and play this weekend in some sunshine and warmer temps, hoping now the weather man has it half right (warmth and no rain).

Hope your upcoming weekend has some fun festivities that fit into your goals of a healthier you.

‘Tis a fine day indeed for the wearin’ of the Green!

May the sun shine always on your face,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the rais fall gently on your fields
May the road rise up to meet your feet, and
May ye be in Heaven for an hour afore the devil knows you’re dead!

The past week has been all about family for me and unfortunately snowmen are more than appropriate in the area of the midwest where I live - 8" this morning and still going strong.

Hope you are finding the second week of March to be a good one on your journey to a healthier you.

Some Homespun Southern Philosophy

In the south there's a difference between 'Naked' and 'Nekkid.' 'Naked' means you don't have any clothes on. 'Nekkid' means you don't have any clothes on and you're up to somethin'.

“Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.”
~ Og Mandino
