When our children are little, all we can think about is what it will be like when they are are grown. When they sleep through the night. When they are potty trained. When they start school. When they are old enough to clean up after themselves. When they can drive. When they start a job. When they graduate.
And then it happens and we are like, where did the time go? Then we want to get it back. To do more. To say more. To make sure they knew they were loved the best we could. To fix our misatles we made as parents.
We often here people talk about the right time to do things, or not having enough time or my favorite, time management. We think about these phrases because we all know we are only here for a limited time and we want to make the best of every day.
We read all the article about happiness. And that is all we truly desire in life. To be happy and spend as much time with our loved ones as we possibly can. To me, we can sum it very simply.
“Human desire is to create a life of complete happiness with those we love and to always live each day with gratitude and giving of ourselves. Life is not the regret of time spent foolishly but rather of dedication of being better than ones self was the day before.”
Have GREAT day!
Isn’t It Time You Had Life On Your Terms?
We all have those days. When the alarm goes off and we think, just 5 more minutes!! We roll over, and 5 minutes later, the snooze button goes off. Ok, so we want 5 MORE minutes, so we throw our shoe at our alarm. Don’t laugh, you all know you have done the same thing.
Most folks feel this way because they have to get out of bed for their job. Others may feel this way because they are stay at home parents and they know the children will not stay in bed as long as they would like.
Regardless of you reason we all have one. Sometimes it is because we have been working hard and are just completely exhausted. But one way or the other, we get up, we shower and we grab a cup of “jo” to start the day.
What is the reason? the motivation for you? Family? Your children? Your job? Money? Once you figure that out, then I want you to tell me why that one thing above all is the most important to you?
For me, it was always my kids. i wanted them to realize, regardless of what life tossed you, there was always a reason to get up and do something everyday. just because our purpose isn’t always clear to us, doesn’t mean we dont work in the direction of our goals anyway. Now they are adults and living on their own, I would say my reason is still the same. Everyday has a purpose. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean you wont be the reason someone else has a good day, and that is always a great reason!!
Make it a great day, your up and out of bed anyway!!
From the day we are born, we have the ability to be great. We dream of greatness as children. When asked what they want to be, most 1st grade children will answer such things as I want to be a rock star or a ballerina. Maybe they want to be the president.
At that age they only know one thing, they can do and be anything they want to be. And why shouldn’t they believe in that they are more that capable of doing whatever they want?
Truth is, we never really loose that chance or opportunity to do wonderful things with our lives. It is always there. We just talk ourselves out of it. And we call that reason fear. All fear is is our own insecurities coming against us and trying to trick us into believing that we can’t be exceptional.
What it comes down to is this, if you want something bad enough, you will fight to make it happen. if you dont fight for it, then you really never wanted it afterall.
So ask yourself, what do you want? Right now, today, what are your goals? What do you need to do to achieve them? What stands in your way? How would you feel if you went after what you want most in life?
You are braver, stronger and smarter than you think you are. Go forward and achieve!
So many days…
So many weekends…
So many years…
So many of us can’t wait for our children to group up, to get out on their own. We look forward to that day with anticipation. Of course we have enjoyed having them at home and all of the wonderful memories, but then we will have “me” time again. Time to do the things we always wanted to do, before we started a family.
And at the same time we want our children to stay young forever. Till the right time comes for us to do all the things we wanted to do with them, all the trips, the adventures.
So why is it we are caught between now and then? That we struggle with what we desire for our life, our children and our family? For most folks it is a time commitment. And a lack of extra cash. They are too busy working a job, not building a life, and time passes. They want to wait till they get a raise, a bonus or next year.
And sadly they put off till tomorrow what needs done today. For most of you reading this you can relate. To much month and not enough money. The car needs fixed again. There is a graduation, a wedding, a birthday.
How can we change it you ask? We have to work. You are right, having an income is necessary for any life style to survive. But have you ever wanted more, a brighter future?
Below I have listed a few ideas to help you create that better life, Enjoy and here is to your life being it’s best!!
- find time to do little , inexpensive things with your family. don’t keep putting off that quality time while you wait to do the “big” things.
- start keeping a budget, I am serious about this one, you will pay more attention to what is spent and how if you know where every cent goes.
- put a little away when you can. Even if you put aside a couple of dollars a day, at the end of the month, you can go out for a nice dinner, and more family memories
- and finally, I know you are hard-working and committed to your families, but what if you could add to your income from home, around your job and your family, would you be interested? Let’s talk!
Make It A Great day!!
