Reminder, Ideas, and Thoughts to Ponder ...

One more week to go!!!

I thought we could all use some feel good quotes to keep us in joyous spirit of the season during these busy days ahead... so this will be the focus of this week's Reminders, Ideas, and Thoughts to Ponder...I hope one of these speaks to you!  In the comments section below, leave a note about which one spoke to you and why.  If you take time to do this, you may leave at 3:30 one day next week to get some holiday shopping started (or finished :).

Even though it can be hard, you have to take a chance on doing things you feel you need to do to get to where you want to be. When you feel something leading you to make a change, but it's scary to step out of your comfort zone, but if you don't you may may miss something really great. I totally relate to that.

-“Tough times never last, but tough people do.” ~Dr. Robert Schuller. Personally this speaks volumes to me. It's just another reminder that no one said "life" would be easy. It's how you overcome the hard parts of it that make you who you are.

-"The purpose of our lives is to be happy." and "Tough times never last, but tough people do." These go hand in hand. Life is hard and takes many roads you don't expect, but if you can be positive and and optimistic you can do anything. Attitude is the main ingredient to a successful life!

"Don't wait. The time will never be just right." Do not spend all your energy and thoughts waiting for the right time. The best lessons are learned and memories are made through the journey of any experience!!!

-“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” ~Napoleon Hill. There are so many wonderful quotes it took awhile to pick the one I wanted. I have heard this all of my life. My dad use to say, "There will never be a right time, go out and seize the day. You never know what the future brings so make each moment count and enjoy your experience."

Don't wait...the time will never be just right.: Oh how true! It seems like the time is never just right because we live flawed lives but if we just keep going and doing the best we can, life is AMAZING!!

“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” ~Dalai Lama... It's hard to let go of the expectations/standards I had for myself before I became a mom (much less a mom of 2 young ones!). I work daily on letting go of all of the stress & "stuff" that can wait another day (*cough*laundry*cough* :) ), and just being happy in the moment with my family. :)
