Thought for the day…..

Happy Tuesday, January 24th, 2012 ……. really…

WOW, 24 days into the New Year.

What was a quiet beginning to the New Year took on a whole new life mid last week on the 18th….

I never saw it coming …… well you know …… my unwanted visitors.

But I shall keep those thoughts to they came, had breakfast and were “ASKED” to leave …..  LOL.  (I can laugh now, phew)

I started my new position at my full-time job and am loving it.

There is certainly lots to learn but I shall always have something to do.

Which is great.

Isn’t learning lovely?

It seems though over the past months …. I have been learning lots of things.

Certainly as we get older ….. learning and exercising our minds is a great thing.

I think that I perhaps was a bit “stagnant” in some ways before with being in the same job for decades, working for the same company, living in the same home for twenty-five years and so on.

But almost three years ago ….. I threw caution to the wind and turned my life upside down ……

You know what?  Despite a couple of speed bumps along the way …… it has been SO GREAT.

Sometimes you just have to take the leap ….. have faith that things will work out and go for it.

One of my many dreams was to own my own home ….. so that if I wanted to paint….. I could.

Something to call my own.

Also to be retired (extended vacation) ….  sleep-in and enjoy that freedom.

To have my own dog….

There are so many dreams that I have realized …

Another big one … was to once again live near my only daughter …….

So I guess in the dream department …. I have hit the JACKPOT….

I am so blessed…. so lucky.

Well here it is almost time to finish getting ready for work.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Take a chance ….. dare to dream…… make your dreams come true. BELIEVE…..

Special Hello:  to my cousin Janice and my sister Cindy …… two important women in my life ….. I MISS YOU GUYS!!

Always, Carol
