Thought for the day ……

Today is Wednesday the 14th day of October, 2015.

Wow, can you believe it?

Where does the time go?

As of late, I have noticed several people over the age of 40 mention about how fast time goes.

The consensus of opinion was “once you have children” the time flies.

Do you remember when you were 5 and waiting for Santa to arrive?

Trying to figure out how he could come into your house because you did not have the obligatory brick chimney!

Do you remember when your Mum said only 5 sleeps until your Birthday party?

You thought 5 how much is that ?

When you are a child time seems to pass slowly but it is because you live in the present and the future seems far away.

Even one day.

As we get older ….. we live in the future …. our thoughts are always for tomorrow.

We also live in the past so naturally time will fly …..

I guess one thing we can learn from the children is to live in the present …..  live today.

Most days I am okay with the speed that time seems to go …

Others not so much.

Guess lesson learned …..

Always live for today ….. tomorrow will come soon enough.

If you always worry about today and think of tomorrow where are you really living?  Yesterday?

Yikes, too much heavy thinking for 630 a.m.

Time to leave for work.

The office is calling …..

Er, perhaps first being the bus.

Staying focused.

Special Hello to: my sister …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 22nd day of July, 2015.

It is a beautiful sunny morning here in Edmonton.

Last night we had a lovely rain ….. we so do need it.

YAY.

Do you have mornings when you put on your clothes and go OOOH?

You have diligently, and without fail laid out the outfit the night before and all of a sudden it just does not feel right.

I have had one of these mornings.

So grateful that I had a few extra minutes for the several top changes.

The pants are okay but for some reason the top half is not cooperating this morning.

Oh the joys of being a woman.

I wonder do men fuss and stew over what they are going to wear?

I will say one thing …. I am not trying to impress anyone or everyone …. I just want to be comfortable.

For me, if I am comfortable …. I feel good and I think that I look good.

My opinion and I guess that is what counts is our own opinion.

Putting off good energy is the main thing …..

I have a few items that no matter what is going on I feel great wearing them ….. so white top …. ON.

Mr. Alvin just lays on the bed all curled up …. likely thinking “Oh Momma, how come so many trips to the closet?”

I would reply “Mr. Alvin, it is just one of those days.”

So I have now got the “crap” out of my day and it is going to be great.

Check ….. life is great.

I feel wonderful.

It rained last night so the grass looks amazing.

Needs a cut though and all of those tree shoots coming up.

Doesn’t take them long to sprout.

I hope that you have an amazing day and hopefully what you have picked out is just perfect for today.

Special Hello to: my friend “M” …… chocolate pancake recipe will be posted here on the weekend…

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Whatever you are thinking at this very moment …… is shaping your next moment.

So in order to keep your “next moment” going in the direction for which you are dreaming …..

Keep your thoughts positive, loving and with gratitude.

Be happy …..

Have a great day.

 

Always, Carol

Thought for the day……

What are you thinking this very moment?

I am thinking that I am very grateful.

Grateful that I have a coffee date with a neighbour and friend this afternoon.

Grateful that the temperatures warmed up so that Alvin and I could take a nice walk.

Grateful for my family and friends.

Grateful to live this amazing life.

What are you grateful for?

Make a list each and every day …… doesn’t have to be long ….

You can do it on paper.

You can think aloud or to yourself when you get up in the morning before your feet the floor or at night before you go to sleep.

However you do it,  just do it ….. gratitude goes a long way……..

Happy Day Everyone.

Always, Carol
