Yardley Soap

Don't know why I am thinking of soap today, but...when I think of something refreshing, I think of Yardley soap. It has a nice fragrance and leaves your skin feeling smooth. Does anybody know what I'm talking about?

The year is coming to a close...time for new beginnings...

The year is coming to a close. Have you reached your goals? If not, think of the new year and your ability to begin again. A lot of times when we aim high...we usually hit a least a few or more balls in the park.

I accomplished a few minor things in my life this friends, losing 10 pounds, and getting a job in the art field. My goal for next year is to be a mover and a shaker. I still managed to procrastinate too much, but towards the end, I stepped it up a notch and watched things happen. I can only imagine what could have happened if I started earlier.

As far as weight loss...I had my ups and downs, but I will not give up. I will be starting all over again after the holidays.

Jelly Fish

Jelly Fish at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.

This past weekend, I enjoyed the day snapping pictures at the Aquarium with my family & friend. I was captivated by the Jellies. I left the South and came to the big city for the summer (back to my hometown). I am here to make my dreams come true...I have an appointment at the school of my dreams, next month. This is my year to just---go for it. This is a part of the end procrastination. Still working that out (procrastination that is), had a few bumps a long the way - but I'm not giving up.

Breaking Barriers

For hundreds of years, no-one could beat the four-minute-mile barrier in track-in-field. It was said to be impossible. Until Roger Bannister made sports history...he refused to let that be a barrier in his mind...he did it...he broke the record. After that, hundreds of people were able to do it, too! What stopped other people from breaking this record for hundreds of years??? All of a sudden others were able to do what they couldn't do before. So, the lesson is...don't let your mind be a barrier. Don't let your dreams go by and let people tell you what you can't do.

I read about this in Chapter 4 of Joel Osteen's book, "Your Best Life Now...7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential".
