Spring Cleaning!

Wow!  It's April already.  I can't believe how quietly the month of March slid  in and slid out.  March was an exciting month.  Many of us celebrated Women's History Month by remembering some of the world greatest women.  Whether it's your mother, first teacher, big sister, or someone like Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, or Harriet Tubman, I am sure all of us have been touch my the greatness of a woman or several women!

 As we move into April and Spring Fling, it's a great time to take personal inventory as to our life's goals and objectives.  Maybe it time to do some spring-cleaning and to throw out all the goals and objectives we have decided are no longer worth pursuing. As you peruse through your personal inventory of goals and objectives, remember to give yourself a break. Don't be hard on yourself for not accomplishing or finishing something you promised to finish before spring. You made the effort, and you are still in the race, so if you want to, press on to the finish line, but if you like, change course and pursue other things.


Thought For The Day:

"Keep pace with your heart's desires because that's want will guide you toward self-fulfillment."
