Today I woke to a very gray and overcast day. Seems as if the birds are affected as well – don’t hear them singing as loud outside my window. I love to wake to that sound of jubilation. But overcast or sunny skies – life goes on full speed. And no matter how fast or slow the ride, or how gray or bright the skies – we can make it well worth the ride.

I read a blog today about one of the seven deadly sins – sloth – and thought “OH MY!” – never thought that applied to me but sometimes it does. When I feel it creeping in – like sludge in a grease trap – I fight like crazy to dig thru the gook and garbage that brings on this immobility that can choke the life out of a joyful spirit. We all probably experience that every now and then – God forbid that we should be in a sloth spot all the time.

Life is full of so many wonderful experiences right under our noses. We don’t have to venture far. Every day can be an adventure – big or small. I did a VISION BOARD this year for the first time and every day I find something on that board that I include in each day I wake – FEELING GOOD, DREAMING BIG, SPEAKING UP, PLANNING DAILY… I keep a big calendar above my desk and make sure that every day has something productive accomplished — sometimes just for myself and other times for someone else. There is a blessing in every one of our steps forward.

Life is gone in a flash so we must find joy — even in small stuff.

Slow But Sure Wins This Race

Don't stop living just because the sky is gray today.

Don’t stop living just because the sky is gray today.


Life has provided many challenges that have made me stick my neck out even when I didn't want to, Those experiences have made me strong and resilient, and have allowed me to keep moving towards my goals despite any adversity. These are the wonderful qualities of the turtle. Life's challenges have placed me on the thrown as The Turtlequeen.

    WOW!!! When I tell you that you need to write/blog more, this is what I’m talking about. The way you paint words on a canvass is simply joyful. You manage to bring your thoughts to life is such a magical way. I’m telling you, your gift is simply amazing and I hope you continue to share it more.
    Just dust off that slothfulness… and get to writing. I’m a big fan.


    • Thanks so much Tim
