Only The Strong Survive

The strong don’t survive because they are lucky.

The strong survive because they know they must survive.

They plan to survive.

They anticipate successes and failures.

They see the big picture, makingĀ the small details all make sense.

They work day and night.

They hustle and grind.

They get back up every single time.

They live in offense mode.

They don’t accept any other outcome.

Until next time, my friends…

Make it a great day,

Love/Hate Relationship With Summer Vacation

This is the last week of school for my children, and although in many ways they are excited…there’s a flip side to their excitement. You see, each year as school winds down, I ramp up with my “GREAT MOM IDEAS” to keep the kids active, alert, and learning throughout the summer vacation.

Work, chore, and learning opportunities abound! wpid-fb_img_1430702899892.jpg

Projects and family-fun activities make my eyes brighten!!

Daily family fitness and “active play” ideas fill my mind!!!

…My kids hate this…

They’re not against doing stuff, but their Mom has a tendency to over-schedule their three months that are (to their minds) supposed to be a break from schedules.

So, once again I have busted out the notebook and been sprawling endless lists and schedules and time tables of what kinds of things we can be doing when, where, and how allllll summmmmmer long.

Oh yeah, kids…get ready! Momma’s got the summer well planned.

“Get up! There’s no sleeping in in summer!!!”

“I’ve been up since 4…it’s time to get up and have a great day!”

“I have the best idea for today! Remember how we talked about how great it would be if the garage were completely cleaned up and reorganized?!?!?!!!!”

“Let’s start running together, every day, as a family! How about getting up early before the summer heat sets in!”

“Math workbook time!”

Yep, they’ll love it šŸ˜‰

Until next time, my friends…

Make it a great day,

Enjoying the Sunset & Recharging My Soul

#gettingyoungereveryday DAY 3

One of the many joys of growing up is that we tend to have really full, busy, important lives. In those lives, how often do we stop? Just stop.

Today, as a way to recharge my batteries and add to my #gettingyoungereveryday mission to 40, I am stopping. I’m resting long enough to enjoy an amazing sunset. Enjoy it with me, won’t you?

Until next time, my friends.

Make it a great day,
Mari!yn
