I'm not sure if it's my aging brain cells or simply how much I've written over the last few years, but one of the challenges is trying to remember what I've written about before.
For example, there are a lot of amazing ideas in this world plastered all over refrigerators with kitchen magnet wisdom. Last night we were finishing dinner, cleaning up the kitchen and I decided to use one of my favorites about "happiness being a journey, not a destination." Why? Because Sheila and I simply had a terrific day...one of those perfect days with absolutely nothing special except spending time together. This magnet is one of my favorites and it's a thought I love to share.
Just now I went to check to see if I'd posted it on this blog before and I did, last May. So, I had a decision to make...write something original or share it again. The latter won out! It's too good not to share again and especially to remind you that you're in charge of your own happiness..
"For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination."
What surprised me is that I found another favorite in the house, printed on a small piece of canvas, from the same author, "Souza".
"Dance as though no one is watching you, love as through you have never been hurt before, sing as though no one can hear you, live as though heaven is on earth."
Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend and a Sunday filled with memory-making moments with family and friends. Don't waste time and just enjoy the journey. Thank you for your support and being such a special part of my life and to "Souza" - thanks for the smile you've obviously put in so many hearts.
