Life is more intricate than words on pages of the most sacred books or your favorite song. Create the world you choose to live in. Accept the responsibility and make sure your story consists of the words you choose to be on the pages of your book.

Don’t stop writing even when some of the words are misspelled or the notes are off-key, Keep trying, eventually, you’ll get it right. Have the courage to let the world read your story and hear your song.

Sooner than any of us realize, our story will just be a distant memory from a time long ago buff.ly/2LWwSaR

What do you think your purpose is? 🌍

I have met people in their 90s, still searching and others who seem to inherently known that answer since childhood. Consider each new day your wake up call. Don’t just roll over and hit the snooze button. At some point, it’s going to be too late.

Many people have changed there mind along the way. It happens so frequently, society has coined the phrase; “midlife crisis”! Never say or think never or it's too late!

After all, better late then NEVER, so ALWAYS keep searching! buff.ly/2LWwSaR

What do you want to be? 🤔

I bet you were asked that question so many times when you were a child. Why is that? Is the age to stop asking written somewhere? Did I miss the memo?

The bad news: finding the answer is no easy task. Make time before it runs out! The good news: “it’s not over till the ... lady sings" (and yes, I know, I left the “fat” word out)!

My advice: keep one foot on the ground, but NEVER EVER stop reaching for the stars ✨🙏https://buff.ly/2LWwSaR

Anger, fear and grief are ALL-consuming emotions.

In the throws of these, your mind swirls with hurricane force. Anger lacks the ability to behave civilly, I don’t think fear ever thinks rationally, “and grief must surrender to loss”.

It is what it is! Accept sadness as a normal part of the healing process and be non-negotiable when it comes to the task of making peace with your new beginning. Anger is a raging fire, fear will paralyze you and griefs tears can drown our spirits.

When you need help...ask for it! Never be ashamed of asking: only shame here would be NOT asking ❤️🙏 cathy-tolk.com/inspire/

It might sound strange but it’s not what’s said that matters... it’s what’s heard that counts.

We automatically interject our own judging system: who said it, what was said, and the hardest to realistically control; what we wanted to hear. It boils down to each person’s individual perception, most people consider themselves excellent judges of character. Just ask them!

When did life get such sharp edges? We shred each other‘s words, shave them till they fit our truth and slice and dice anyone who doesn’t agree with us. Cut it any way you want but in the end, the truth remains the same. buff.ly/2LWwSaR

Presents in all shapes and sizes are received for a variety of occasions 🎁💕

Rumor has it, the best ones come in small boxes. That’s certainly the case if our names are attached to the iconic blue Tiffany’s box adorned with a silver ribbon.

Regardless of the size or enticing trimmings, it’s what’s inside that really counts. Each of us receives the "gift of the present” every day! Although the spelling’s the same, the meaning is completely different: this “present” requires us to live in the moment.

Cherish the “Here and Now”, a precious gift. Be forewarned: this state of being is as elusive as a bolt of lightning streaking across the sky, or quickly fleeting when random and haphazard thoughts cross our minds. buff.ly/2LWwSaR

Do you have a good work ethic when it comes to dealing with your family and friends?💕

Don’t be late; showing up on time shows them how important they are and that you value their time. Be prepared, if you say you're going to do something, DO IT! Be honest even when telling the truth is so much harder. Remember, it’s not always about you.

Don’t keep score; the games not over yet. Anyone lucky enough to live a long full life inevitably felt at certain times like they were at war. Losing a few battles means nothing as long as you ultimately win the war.

Treat your family like friends, and your friends like family. buff.ly/2LWwSaR
