Working toward your dreams is not always easy.  It can feel upstream some days, some weeks, even some years.  Following your dreams is important but it is the hard work that  makes fulfilling them all the sweeter. Like most things in life,  accomplishing something that is hard makes it all the more worthwhile.

MEANWHILE, on that path. In that upstream battle…look around and be grateful for all the little things that you have on a daily basis.  Gratitude will make the journey that much more pleasant and  fill your life with so much more than  even your dreams can give you. Remember it is the journey, not the destination.   Don’t miss out on the tiny little ‘presents’ along the way .

(I WRITE THIS AS A REMINDER TO MYSELF)

Here are some inspirational quotes:

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.

Oprah Winfrey

The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.

Paul Valery

HEALTH UPDATE:  Breast lump was a cyst. Yes, thank goodness.  They are checking some suspicious calcifications but good chance they are nothing. Thank you for your support this last week. I should know for sure by this Friday
