“Each day can count if we learn to live it ‘on purpose’ rather than passively drifting through the day, allowing the wind of circumstances and distractions to make our choices for us.” — Joyce Meyer
Last year, Carol and I went to Cabo San Lucas with my cousin and his wife. We were at a resort that featured a beautiful pool and an incredible view. My cousin and his wife enjoy basking in the sun and the pool all day for hours at a time. I thought I would, too, although I had never taken a vacation like that. I was wrong.
After a couple of hours of hanging out by the pool, I was restless. There were things to see, places to go, people to meet! I learned something about myself that week; I don’t do well with just “hanging out.”
I have a list of goals for each day. The list is on a digital calendar that goes everywhere I go… on my phone. The goals don’t always need to be work-related. Sometimes it’s exploring and adventuring! But watching the sun move across the sky didn’t work for me.
My system may sound a little neurotic but I feel a sense of accomplishment each night when I lay my head on my pillow. I can rest knowing that I made the most of the day. I know I can simply take each day as it comes but I also know that a rudderless ship is doomed. I choose to live with intention. How about you?
Purple Pig Pasta Party
Bravo to the Purple Pig Committee, the temporary co-chairs, Nancy DiTomaso and Tex Perry, James Leitholf and the kitchen crew, the Ladies of the Lodge and their wonderful desserts, our Local Girl Scouts, and all the other volunteers that helped to make the Purple Pig Pasta Party a huge success!
It was very well attended, as usual. As I walked around the room and stopped by each table, everyone had good things to say about the food and the night, in general.
It was wonderful hearing how the therapists do their work and how they are benefited from the Purple Pig contributions. Best of all, it was great seeing so many people supporting our local children with medical needs. The kids are the big winners here… as they should be!
Special thanks to Sharron Cannon (PER), District Co-Chair for CHEA Major Projects and the Purple Pig, for sharing the evening with us. It’s great to have the District’s support!
