Winter Olympic Games

I have have always loved watching the Olympic games. May favorite part would be the opening and closing ceremonies. The opening ceremonies capture the spirit of the games along with the hopes and dreams of the athletes. The closing ceremonies honor those athletes and those events which either brought victory or defeat.
In life, we all experience moments of victory and defeat. The question we need to ask on this journey: Am I at the top of my "game?" Pun intended! Are you giving 100% of yourself? Something to think about!

Day of Love

I admit I'm a hopeless romantic! "Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, and The Goodbye Girl" are some of my favorite movies! "You and Me, I'm Your's, and You Were Meant For Me" are some of my favorite songs. I think you know where I'm going with this!
During this time of year we are bombarded with ads including jewelry, flowers, candy, etc. Even though I agree these are ways to show love, I believe there are many other ways!
I've always considered Valentines Day as a day to show love to those people in our lives that we appreciate! It's as simple a visiting a shut-in, calling someone you haven't talked to for awhile, sharing a meal, etc. On your journey, take time to spread the Love!

We Are The World

This morning I downloaded a copy of "We are the world". It was 25 years ago that the song came out in response to children suffering from AIDS in Africa! They are doing a remake of the song in response to tragic suffering after the earthquake in Haiti.
I hope you take time to listen to this song. The lyrics combined with the music are very powerful. On your journey remember "We are the ones who make a better day so let's not give in"! Take time to
make a brighter day for someone!
