Welcome to this edition of the Monday Morning Message.....I hope each of you had a weekend filled with lots of fun and relaxation. Let's keep the train moving forward this week. We have all accomplished many things so far this year and the future is looking bright. We need to prepare for tomorrow today, but we must also make the very most out of the moments we have now. It's a tough balancing act, but we can do it. Life is not a race to the finish-line. We should enjoy the weather. We should enjoy the opportunities and things around us. We should enjoy our time to ourselves and make the very most of it with others. The goal should not be to get to the end or finish as quickly as possible. It should be to do things always with energy and love. The challenge is not getting to the end of the road or task or assignment. The challenge is getting to the end with a smile, memories, and stories to tell. Enjoy this week and make the most of each moment.
Things Work Out
Because it rains when we wish it wouldn't,
Because people do what they often shouldn't,
Because crops fail, and plans go wrong
Some of us grumble all day long.
But somehow, in spite of the care and doubt,
It seems at last that things work out.
Because we lose where we hoped to gain,
Because we suffer a little pain,
Because we must work when we'd like to play
Some of us whimper along life's way.
But somehow, as day always follows the night,
Most of our troubles work out all right.
Because we cannot forever smile,
Because we must trudge in the dust awhile,
Because we think that the way is long
Some of us whimper that life's all wrong.
But somehow we live and our sky grows bright,
And everything seems to work out all right.
So bend to your trouble and meet your care,
For the clouds must break, and the sky grow fair.
Let the rain come down, as it must and will,
But keep on working and hoping still.
For in spite of the grumblers who stand about,
Somehow, it seems, all things work out.
WORDS TO LIVE BY...
It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes.
If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily.
Don't let what you can't do stop you from doing what you can do.
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
Your life is your message to the world. Make it inspiring.
Lorrin L. Lee
The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work.
The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.
This world is but canvas to our imaginations.
Henry David Thoreau
LET'S MAKE THIS THE BEST WEEK EVER!!!
