Of course, we would love for life to be life school with a detailed syllabus so we know what we are going to learn, what we will be tested on and when. In reality, it doesn’t work that way.  Embrace each test, trail, barrier, and challenge as a part of your journey, making you stronger and building your resilience for the rest of the way. 

What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog. - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Scientists have said that on average an adult makes up to 35,000 remotely conscious choices each day.  Over 200 of them are about food alone.  At the moment, a singular choice can feel insignificant but a series of related choices often form a habit and a cumulative result.

Consciously make a choice about how you will begin each day.  Randomly based on how you feel when you wake up OR with a focused list aimed at your passion, goals and a few priorities to guide you through the day.

It is not our abilities that define who we are. It is our choices. - Albus Dumbledore

Pause for a moment and give thought to “that thing” you have always wanted to do.  You know, “that thing” that comes to mind every so often.  “That thing” that fills you with sublime hope and brings forth that Charlie Brown ear-to-ear smile. [Read more at link]

I am learning to change the rules, be balanced and play more.   Play with your significant other, your children, broader family and even by yourself (e.g. gaming, puzzles, whatever you like to do).   It’s healthy and we don’t get the time back.

Desire fuels will and without fuel most things come to a stop. – James B. Rosseau, Sr.
