Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 4th day of April, 2017.

Appears to be a good day weather wise.

The snow from yesterday did not last.

Good to have the moisture but it would be nice to have a good rain.

Tomorrow marks the 7th Anniversary of my very FIRST Blog ….. I just could not wait until tomorrow so thought I would share the first one all over again.

Mainly I wanted to see if this blog was going in the original direction or if I changed my focus.

You can be the judge.

Thank you to everyone for their support and comments over the years.

This is my life and I wanted to share some of it with you.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Hi Everyone,

I want to share my “world” with you.  Writing has always played a major role in my life in one way, shape or form.  My dream is to be a published writer, a creator of works to share with the world.  This is my beginning.  My New Life @ 51 will start going back almost two years.  It was just after I turned “51” that I decided to retire after near thirty years with the same company, and  move to a new city in a new province.  Lots of surprises and gifts along the way.  Being “50” something is a bit different from “30” something especially in this day and age.

My life has always been near chaos to some degree.  I decided it was time while I was still young enough to make some monumental changes, to just go for it.  Needless to say my decisions caused much speculation amongst my family and friends. Playing a major role in my motivation was having my only child, my daughter living hundreds of miles away.  We only saw each other a couple of times each year.  She moved in August of 2002 to further her education, and this was the summer of 2008.  We missed each other terribly,  and I missed so many birthdays and just days.  Well, it was time to make some changes!

They say that timing is everything but I think you make your own.  Timing that is. Staying positive, and being optimistic are important tools to living your life.  They certainly have helped me during the past year and a half.

I hope that you will enjoy my “BLOG” and that perhaps I can help to inspire you to make changes, and try something new.  It doesn’t matter how big or how small a change is but spreading your wings is a good thing.  Learning something new keeps your brain alive and functioning. Keeps you young.   Also I want to share some of the things that I have learned during my almost “53” years on this good old planet Earth.  Maybe a recipe for my favourite cookies (everyone rants and raves over) or how to entertain a two year old.  Just the stuff of life.

If you follow my adventure on this BLOG, I promise to entertain you, educate and inspire and above all, make you LAUGH. Laughter is so important in our lives, and we should all laugh more often.  Belly laugh…… till your eyes fill with “water” !!

Anyway, here goes …………  🙂

Special Hello: to all those who have read my blogs and continue to do so, thank you.

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, the 27th day of March, 2013.

Wow, third last day of the month.

Last night as I got ready for bed and carrying onto this morning, I have been thinking.

You know the five billion different questions and thoughts that buzz through your mind every waking moment of every day unless you have mastered meditation and can lock them out.

I was thinking.

Does it pay to work so hard?  AM I where I should be?  Am I doing enough?  Am I smart enough?  What can I do to make my dreams come true?  How can I make a living doing what I love?

How do some people get away with so much?

How come I am called out on every mistake that I make (they are not that often)?

How can I make my life easy and fun?

Why do some people seem to have it all?

They do not work any harder than me.

What direction do I go?

There are a million questions that one asks each day and I am certain that some of you might be asking the same questions.

I know that the law of attraction plays a large role.

Well time to go … I am running very late.

Have a great day.

Thanks for reading.

Special Hello to you all.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
