Decorate your house with family and friends

 "The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
    This is one of my goals in the next year. I would like to make where I live a home and spend time having my loved ones over. I will stop making excuses and I will decorate my house with family and friends.

I love all of life

   According to Oliver Wendell Holmes, "It's faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes life worth living." I have faith that life is good, and I am excited to find my life purpose. Even though it can be challenging at times, I love all of life.

I admire those who grow strong under adversity

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. 
Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved."
-Helen Keller
       I loved today's positive quotation as I read it, but I was in even more awe when I saw that it was said by Helen Keller. How amazing is all that she could understand and communicate to others even though she could not see or hear? I admire those who grow strong under adversity.

I can do anything with the support of my family

"One person with a belief is equal to a force of 
ninety-nine who have only interests."
-John Stuart Mill
    I have always had many interests in my life. I like to paint; I am passionate about caring for children, especially infants, and I have always enjoyed writing. Only in recent years have I come to truly believe that I can really be a writer. It meant everything to me when my daughter, Morgan, as well as my mother and sister read the rough draft of my book Riding Waves. I know and believe that I can do anything with the support of my family.

Things can look different when you really look

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking 
new landscapes but in having new eyes."
-Marcel Proust
      It is amazing to me when something or someone that I see every day appears to change without really changing at all. Things can look different when you choose to really look.

Prioritize each day

Henry David Thoreau said, " Our life is frittered 
away by detail...Simplify, simplify."
    I work full-time; I have three daughters; I have walked 30 minutes or more every day for 70 days; I have been writing a blog post every day since September 1st, and I wrote my first book. In order to fit everything in that I want to accomplish, I need to prioritize each day.
