From Sharon’s pen…
“As you welcome each day, do so with eager anticipation. Laugh more, smile more and don’t take yourself too seriously. There will be those days that seem like eternities, and others that pass with the blink of an eye. Your future will be created by the decisions you make along the way. Take ownership of those decisions.
Along life’s path we all tend to create limitations for ourselves, often without even realizing it. Endeavor to watch your own vocabulary when speaking to others but also, and even more importantly, when talking to yourself. Commit to never say “if only I”, “I can’t” or “I’ll try.” Instead say “when I”, “I can” or “I will” and your life will be fulfilled in ways beyond your imagination.”
