Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 3rd day of July, 2016.

Earlier there was thunder and lightning followed by a rain shower.

The skies cleared and the sun shone and now a little while later it is cloudy once again.

Our weather can change so quickly over a few hours time.

It remains quite warm despite the changes.

 

Yesterday I was happy to get the “family room” in the basement cleaned out.

Filled some boxes with things to remove from the house, items that I no longer need, want or use.

That is what I am on the trail to do is to remove every item from my house that I no longer need, want or use.

If I do not use things on a regular basis other than Christmas decorations and of course winter coats, boots and the like – then they are going.

I am selling, giving to charity or recycling depending on the item.

I no longer feel the need to fill each nook and cranny with “stuff” with “things.”

As I get older I want less and less stuff surrounding me.

I crave to have bare spare and to only have what I love surrounding me.

So today I am going to work on my office space.

Go through papers and stuff.

My office is pretty good but there are a few things that need to go.

 

Maybe today is the day that you reflect on what is truly important.

Maybe you do love, wear and need 100 pairs of shoes.

Maybe you do love, watch and need 200 movies.

Maybe you would like to share those shoes with others who would love, wear and need them just as much as you.

Maybe you would like to share those movies with others who would love, wear and need them just as much as you.

See my point.

It is a personal thing for sure.

But not only am I thinking of me but also our dear planet.

The more we buy.

The less our planet has.

Think of it that way.

We consume well beyond our needs.

Do you need that next pair of sandals that takes your total to over 100 pair of shoes?

Likely you never wear most of them.

Needing and wanting are two different things.

Perhaps if we take baby steps.

For every item you bring into your home you remove one.

Less is more.

It is more freeing.

Try it.

 

Well time to go.

I hope that you will ponder how much you consume.

How much you buy.

Thank you.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends all over the world.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 26th day of November, 2014.

I just had a thought.

What is the best gift in the world to receive?

The gift that you did not ask for?

Is that not the truth?

I received two Christmas cards in the mail last night.

At work on breaks and before and after work I wrote up some cards.

I did not have the address of one of my friend’s as they moved and I said to myself “Will have to leave that one till I get home and get her address”

Who do you think one of the cards was from?  My friend, of course.

The other was from a family friend …. she is family.

Anyway she has a son and I have always addressed the card to include him and this year he has a girlfriend ….. that was the second card.

I needed to know her name to put on the card …. isn’t that great.

Oh, boot camp last night was AWESOME.

I feel great and hopefully that will continue.

Was a great workout and I loved working out beside my friend even though you barely had time to see who was around you.

I had the best Tuesday night.

Well time to go to work.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: all those people who take the time to write Christmas cards – it is appreciated.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 10th day of January, 2014.

YAY, another gorgeous morning ….. we are so lucky ….. so blessed.

Alvin and I have been enjoying walks every night ….. so great.

“FOOD FOR THOUGHT”- FRIENDS

How are you on the friends front?

What kind of friends do you have?

What kind of friend are you?

Do you listen?

Are you needy?

It makes a difference.

Do you talk to your friend(s) every day?

Do you see them on a regular basis?

Do they live close to you?

Just remember always to “give” and you will receive back.

We the best friend you can possibly be.

Friends are a true blessing.

I hope that you and your friends are doing great.

Take the time to see a special friend today, if possible.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. SKYPE this weekend?

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Let’s see what “pearls of wisdom” shall I impart upon the masses today!  (GOL)

Mmmm, well whatever you do and wherever you go

Always give and do your best.

Be your best self.

I think that above all else, if we are our “best self” – we can conquer the world.

Be successful and with abundance.

Have a great day!!

Always, Carol
