And My Goals Are……

“Life is what happens when you are making plans.” Allen Saunders

Do you have goals? I do. I have plans for today, the next week and month. I also have a 3 and 5 year plan/goal. The goals I have set for today are mostly work and household tasks related. I create a list and dearly love to scratch them off as I accomplish one of my items. Progress!

Monthly goals are career, doctors visits, short-term financial (pay bills) and places I want to go and see. Don’t forget about having fun so add this to your goals. My 3 and 5 year goals are long-term financial, career, personal health, and future vacations.

Why set goals? All the great achievers of our world set goals. Eleanor Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln set goals for themselves. They wrote them down or had them in their head, but they had plans/goals for their success.

Creating goals gives you a vision of the future and motivation. Setting goals helps you organize your time and space so you can make the most of your valuable time. These goals are not etched in stone, so as you go forward in your life don’t be afraid to tweak them even completely change them.

SET GOALS, you will be surprised how much this simple task boosts your self-confidence.

Age, It’s Just a Number

Age should never be measured in years or aches and pains.  It should, however, be measured in how you feel about yourself and what you have accomplished.  Even the little thing have value.

Today is my birthday and I am, as a friend pointed out to me “Nine years older than dirt!”.  Now to me that is OLD, yet I still feel like a kid at times.   I feel like I can do anything and yes. my body does point out to me  “NO you can’t”.

I have learned a lot over the years.  Grown and made my share of mistakes and I know my ages in numbers but I feel young and alive.  I have so much I want to do in my life and look forward to many more years on this earth.  I want to go to Paris, zip line in Costa Rica and make my Dragon Alley business a huge success!

Age is only a number, so don’t let it stop you from doing great and wonderful things.

Life is what you make of it, don’t let a mere number stop you.

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
