I know if all of us were sitting around one giant Thanksgiving dinner table today and we went around and shared what we were most thankful for I'd have a lot to say. At the top of the list, along with the support and love of my wife, Sheila, I'd have to thank all of you for your support. SCU started just over ten months ago and it continues to grow. With your help and feedback we're going to keep adding new features and focus on helping you THRIVE, not just survive.
Knowing many of the challenges everybody is facing these days and with the year coming to a close it seems appropriate to share five of my favorite quotes. There are some incredible people in the world who have done an amazing job of giving us things to think about and five of them are right here:
We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don’t know where you’re aiming, you don’t have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared.
Mary Kay Ash
Only those who are asleep make no mistakes.
Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of IKEA
When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way.
The only thing that stands between a person and what they want in life is the will to try it and the faith to believe it possible.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
No matter how tough a year you've had, no matter what challenges in life have been thrown at you throughout this past year, if you're sitting at your computer reading this blog, you have a lot to be thankful for!
Wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with memory-making moments and the love of family and friends. Make it a great day...and stay away from the computer until tomorrow!
