It's Up To You To Drive

As I sit here pondering various thoughts running wild in my mind~~ my brain stops suddenly to my FB post from this morning from the late "great" Dr. Seuss

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” Dr. Seuss

A fun, humorous, but very powerful statement; we have everything we need to succeed if we only use what was given to us. Along with determination, will power and courage one can succeed. 

Every time I think of this statement, it excites me. Think about it we have our destiny at our finger tips! We have the ability to make changes, succeed in our personal and business life as long as we use our heads, move our feet, make a path in life and drive baby drive.....

Does that not excite you? It excites my inner soul! Makes me feel I can conquer the world or my slice of the world! Or are you one of these people......

Who are very comfortable with such words as: can't, excuse, and economy. You would rather complain then change things. You have your own version of the Webster Dictionary full of excuses about the negatives of change. Frankly, my head spins like a tilt-a-wheel when I run into these people. 

I want to give them a mirror and tell them to look in the mirror through out the day and say, I"m strong, I can do anything! Works wonders for my kids and me. Then I get told well I don't have the confidence you have. I say I have confidence because I look in the mirror and say I can do it,  I'm strong, I'm confident! Just do it what do you have to lose....nothing, but you could gain a life lived....

One step closer to being deliriously happy!

Beautiful People

I was having a conversation the other day with my good friend, Mr. Lusher! During our conversation, I had discussed what I had noticed over the last few months working with Chronologically Challenged Folks. I thought it was worth sharing~

About 8 weeks ago or longer, I started telling the Chronologically Challenged Folks how pretty, handsome and beautiful they are. They were caught off guard by my compliments. The smiles on their faces from my remarks said it all. The replies of I haven't heard that in years, tugged on my cold little heart. The cute little bald men would grab my hand and kiss it. I was in love. My soul is still tingling from the smiles on faces of the Chronologically Challenged Folks~~ 

My comments and their reactions started the wheels cranking in my head:  as humans we like to hear that we are pretty, handsome, beautiful or any words that describe us in that manner. As we become more Chronologically Challenged (70's and up) we do not hear it as much if at all.  Just because we have wrinkles,  bags under our eyes, and our skin shows the years, we are no longer what society thinks as pretty.  I changed my thoughts and when I see my Chronologically Challenged Folks, I think that each wrinkle, age spot and bag is beautiful. They have a glow and a beauty that can only be achieved by years that they have put in. It's sad as a society that we can't see this. As for my I will continue to tell my Chronologically Challenged Folks/Friends how beautiful/handsome they are. Everyone deserves to hear it~ 

We fight the aging process for many reasons for  me I don't want to bare the thought of not being told I'm pretty.  I fight it kicking, screaming and with the biggest temper tantrum known to man.  I use every beauty cream and treatment possible to stop the aging process. I can only hope when I lose the war on being pretty that I will have someone in my life that can see through the wrinkles, bags and age spots to see the beauty and tell me once again, I'm pretty~~ God does not make ugly~
