"No matter how much you want to be in control of your life, the only thing you are really in control of is your emotions. "

Keep a journal – Journals help you improve your self-awareness. If you spend just a few minutes each day writing down your thoughts, this can move you to a higher degree of self-awareness and gain mastery over your emotions.

“Start now, life is shorter than you think, what are you waiting for.”

A poem by: Nadine Stair (aged 85)

I Would Pick More Daisies
If I had to live my life over,
I’d dare to make more mistakes next time.
I’d relax.
I would limber up.
I would be sillier than I’ve been this trip.
I would take fewer things seriously.
I would take more chances.
I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers.
I would eat more ice cream and less beans.
I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I’d have fewer imaginary ones.

You see I’m one of those people who live sensibly and sanely,
hour after hour, day after day.
Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them.
In fact, I’d try to have nothing else.
Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day.

I’ve been one of those people who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat and a parachute.

If I had to do it again,
I would travel lighter than I have.
If I had to live my life over,
I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.
I would go to more dances.
I would ride more merry- go rounds.
I would pick more daisies.

“Don’t feel qualified to take on your next opportunity? Nobody does.

You can only be qualified to do that which you have already accomplished or trained for. Anything new is accomplished by unqualified people.”

I love how this quote reframes the thought of impossible to its possible.
What amazing new things will you do this week?

Until next week,

Believe in the possible, live your best life. 
Have an amazing week ahead.
