Will tomorrow be better?

April 21, 2009...

I was sent an email today that when melted down to its core simply read: "I hate my life. Can you guarantee tomorrow will be any better?"

Hmmm...can I really guarantee tomorrow will be better?

Garage cleaning

April 20, 2009...

Yesterday, I did some big time garage cleaning.

Charlie was right.

I went to a used book sale today.

If you've never been to one before, they can be a lot of fun. I love picking through the collection of biographies, psychology, historical, and self-improvement books just to see what treasures I can find. Today I came away with eleven such treasures and spent a grand total of $14.68.

"Just survive!"

April 18, 2009...

The events and circumstances of our individual lives can take a toll.

From them, it is easy to grow weary and make much less effort to dream and push ourselves. Our biggest goal simply becomes coping. At times, most of us have fallen victim to this "Just survive!" mentality.

The smallest difference can make a big difference.

"An Attitude of Gratitude"

April 16, 2009...

I have two kinds of goals in my life. External goals. And internal goals.

The external goals? Well, they give my life purpose. They are the goals that are tied to making my life count. They are the goals that can be seen. They are the "bricks" of my life.

"It is what it is."

"It is what it is."

That's how I have learned to deal with news. The bad kind.

Instead of creating an emotional frenzy for myself, I accept it.

Again, "It is what it is."

Time Flies

April 14, 2009...

Life goes fast. Have you noticed?

Actually, I think as you get older, life flies by even faster. Silly, but it seems like it's true.

I'm in my mid 40's. My mother is approaching 70. My grandmother is in her mid 80's. Perhaps you're like me and think, "Wow! Where did time go!"

"Hit the brakes...and punch the gas!"

April 13, 2009...

Attitude momentum.

It's always our choice.

We can either hit the brakes or punch the gas. We are good at both; it's just that we never really master when to do either. 

How lucky can we get?

"Statistically, the probability of any of us being here is so small that you'd think the mere fact of existing would keep us all in a contented dazzlement of surprise."
