A good friend of mine once gave me a Forever Friends card many years ago, it has the following message on it:
You may walk jump, run or fly,
... but please never lose sight of the reason for the journey, and don't miss a chance to see a flower on the way.
My friend then added the following to this message:
Life is full of wonders if we appreciate and treasure every experience
I carry this card every day to remind me to stop and think of the things I do. Especially when the going get tough and I don't want to continue.
With our current economic conditions many people are down and troubled by the events around them. I just want to share the above with everyone to remind them to value and treasure what they do have.
The things that are out of our control are exactly that, our energy is better spent on the things we can control.
