Are you trying to keep up with the JONESES? FOR WHAT? The JONESES are over worked, stressed out, have high blood pressure, no furniture in that great big house and skyrocketing car payments! The JONESES have to work so hard that they can’t spend quality time together as a couple nor can they find time for family fun and adventure. The JONESES are unhappy, and they have no time to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Keeping up with the JONESES – FOR WHAT!!! Set your own timetable for GREATNESS!
We can pick our friends but we can’t pick our family. This is true, and I am glad for what I was given. Every day I am thankful for the group of people who support all of my crazy ventures, who tell me when I have overdone it and who love me throughout all of the confusion. Some family members will be there for you and give you criticism, love and praise. Others may not. Some people that we consider family are not even related. Whoever you decide to call family, be grateful for them. I am!
Many times we are faced with diversity, with struggles, with challenges. These are the things in life that make you stronger, that build character and have made you the person that you are today. My question is how have you allowed your experiences to mold you? Are you the person who brings sunshine to the lives of others or are you the person who brings the RAIN? Take a moment today and be the SUNSHINE for another.
What makes you HAPPY? What people, places and things make you feel like smiling all day long? If you don’t know take a long look at your life and find three things each day that you are thankful for and make you HAPPYYYYY!
