Wisdom Project Entry #3

                 so true

"Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest."

This is 100% true. If you are trying to break a bad habit or start a good one, those first few days are going to be rough. Your mind is going to try to come up with any rational reason to not have to do something that isn't easy but just keep pushing through it and before long, you will realize you have been doing it for a while and you will be happy and surprised and most importantly - super proud of yourself!! That always makes it worth it!

Wisdom Project Entry #2

"Go the extra mile, it's never crowded"

This is true because not everyone always takes the time to go the extra mile and wouldn't it be so wonderful if that extra mile was always crowded? Think of how much better the world would be! That would be traffic I sure wouldn't mind sitting in! =)

Wisdom Project Entry #1

I am going to start a new series sharing something I have been doing for a long time. I call it the "Wisdom Project". It's a collection of things I have come across or thought of from time to time that I want to share with my girls. Lessons, quotes, stories and things like that over all topics to help them grow up to be sweet, caring and wise young women. Each one of these things shared I have written in a journal book that will be handed to each one on their 18th birthday and at that time, another will be started. They will all have the same things written in them for each one but that way they can have something special to always have and add to for their own children if the want! Just things I want to make sure they always remember! Anything I come across that I love and want to make sure it's shared with my babies goes into the wisdom project. A collection of wisdom from their mother! This is a nice way to back up the project in case anything should ever happen to any of the books.

*side note: normally I wouldn't post a picture of a quote and then type it below it, but for personal copy and paste reasons or the event that the pictures don't show up for some reason, I am going to do that on these entries that apply. 

                            beautiful words.

"If nothing else, I hope you know that I love you with every ounce of my being. I hope you realize your importance not only to me but to everyone who has been lucky enough to know you. I hope you know that when you're feeling down, I only ever strive for your happiness. I hope you remember that no matter what, I'm here for you and I fully intend on staying in your life for quite some time. I  hope you recognize the fact that I appreciate and adore  you without restraints, and that this will never change."

I love finding things like this that seem to read my own mind!
