Sewing is a lot like life. If we don’t learn our lessons they will only repeat themselves until we do learn them. The goal in life for all of us is to live our lives with as many smiles as we can and live life full of love . All the things around us decide if we are having smiles and finding love. When we don’t give ourselves what we love we don’t have many smiles. It’s the decisions we make each day that determine our surroundings. If you don’t like what surrounds you or what’s happening to you, you have to learn what the moment is trying to teach you and do something different, try a different technique until you bring yourself smiles and love, until you make your gold.
There’s two questions I ask my children everyday when I pick them up from school:
Tell me something you learned today because each and every day has lessons to teach us.
The second question I ask is tell me something good that happened because when we focus on the good things and not the bad we have more smiles. The bad things that happen are lessons waiting for us to learn them. The good things that happen are lessons learned.
Success is different for many people. I've had several people look at what I've achieved in awe at my success. Then I think to myself I could do so much better than I am. I view others I come across and think how can they fit all of that in their life and make it all work? Most of how people make it work are goals they set for themselves. That will be part 3 of this series, setting goals.
The only thing we all have the same – we all share is 24 hours in each day. We can’t get more time or take away time. We all live 24 hours. It’s what you do with your 24 hours that determine what kind of life you have, if you fill them with smiles our tears. It’s your choice.......
Until next time, Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun, Cindy
