The Monday Morning Memo April 24th

Education & Training with SendOutCards-Appreciation Marketing Expert



Welcome to this edition of The Monday Morning Message.....I trust you had a wonderful weekend and found the time to get in a little fun and relaxation.  Do you believe there is a way to have and do everything you truly want? I hope you do because it is true. We all get caught up in the day to day of getting by that we loose sight of where we are going. Take a minute and think about where you want to go and then decide how you are going to get there. If one door closes go open another. If there are roadblocks down one path go over them or around them or through them. If people are not helpful find other who will be. When you get tired rest and relax. Build the life that you want not the life others want to give you. There is a way to do all you want as long as you are willing to find it, to keep moving forward, and to help others along the way.
As You Travel Through Life….
By Unknown
As you travel through life there are always those times
When decisions just have to be made,
When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce,
And the rain seems to soak your parade.
There are some situations where all you can do
Is simply let go and move on,
Gather your courage and choose a direction
That carries you toward a new dawn.
So pack up your troubles and take a step forward -
The process of change can be tough,
But think about all the excitement ahead
There might be adventures you never imagined
Just waiting around the next bend,
And wishes and dreams just about to come true
In ways you can’t yet comprehend!
Perhaps you’ll find friendships that spring from new things
As you challenge your status quo,
And learn there are so many options in life,
Perhaps you’ll go places you never expected
And see things that you’ve never seen,
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds
And wonderful spots in between!
Perhaps you’ll find warmth and affection and caring
And somebody special who’s there
To help you stay cantered and listen with interest
To stories and feelings you share.
Perhaps you’ll find comfort in knowing your friends
Are supportive of all that you do,
And believe that whatever decisions you make,
They’ll be the right choices for you.
So keep putting one foot in front of the other,
And taking your life day by day…
There’s a brighter tomorrow that’s just down the road -
Don’t look back! You’re not going that way!
The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.
William James
Every artist was first an amateur.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.
Vince Lombardi
The best way out is always through.
Robert Frost
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life 
Winston Churchill
The sent unexpected gratitude card plants flowers not weeds.

Nice post, Jay.   Most of us can't get everything we want but, as you say, we can get everything we TRULY want.  It is a matter of setting priorities and focusing on what is truly important to us.    Thanks for the inspiring post.

I love the William James quote and find it to be true..."The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook."
