Today, on my way home from my weekly Great Decision's Group, I spotted the above quotation on a delivery truck.  This particular quote has been used in the breast cancer awareness appeal.  However, I THINK, it should be used in our everyday life; healthy or not.

We are all reaching for certain goals in this life according to our own agenda.

But I personally believe there should be a few things that should be on everyone's personal agenda.

Each of us should learn something new every day.  It can be the smallest thing; but we should do it.


We all should eat as healthy as we are able.

Do some exercise each day, if we are able.

We need to make time for friends and family.

We should learn about and visit places in this beautiful country of ours.

We should all plant a flower or two.  It will make God smile; I know it does.

We should develop our spiritually, no matter what our religious affiliation is, and be tolerant of other's beliefs.

Each of us wants to do more than survive in this life.........we want TO EXCEL!!

Blessings dear friends,

  4. "Each of us wants to do more than survive in this life.........we want TO EXCEL!!"

    Or how about changing the EXCEL, to a simple NOTICE? You know... As in "Do more than survive... NOTICE and BE AWARE of all our moments in life." "Not just slog along, almost mindlessly."

    Guess it's all the same message. :-)
