wish there were more hours in a day? Sometimes, it’s difficult to fit in all that we strive to accomplish in that set of time. Some days and weeks pass by where nothing has been completed because of lazy moods or wallowing in self-pity.
Well, it’s important that we remember to…
make time to sit still…to think, to listen. Keep those dreams alive even when they fall to the wayside. Create new dreams, set new goals. When we keep the wheels turning in our head and work towards accomplishing a goal, there is little time for wallowing to become real estate in our minds. And working towards achievement implies always trying – standing tall when failure smacks us in the face.
Of course, we’re never too old to learn. So, keep reading, allowing your brain to be the sponge its meant to be. And where there is time to work, there must also be time to play – to release worries and let laughter and childlike wonder lead the way.
So, simply said, take time to grow and embrace each new life chapter. But whatever you do, don’t waste that precious time!
No stars are unreachable
No matter their height
No hope is invisible
No matter your plight
No dreams are unattainable
No matter how great
No burden is unmanageable
No matter its weight!

I love the message here, Lauren. Thank you.
Thanks, John. I thought some inspiration would be welcoming. 😊
Yes. Good time for inspiration. 😊
Good post Lauren
Thanks, Barbara! Hope you’re doing well!
Amen! Love the positive affirmations and reminders, Lauren. Very timely. 🙏
Thanks, MW! During these crazy times, we can use all the encouragement and positivity we can get, right? 🙂 Hope you are well! 💓
We sure can use all we can get! Sending lots of good vibes your way. 💞
Very nice, Lauren – it’s important to be positive, to embrace the ups and recognize that the downs are normal too, and temporary!
Thanks so much, Barbara, and you said it well, too. I think the word “temporary” is key because when those downs arrive, most of us probably don’t feel that they are temporary. If so, then we have to muster up even more courage and will to rise out of the slumps. 🙂 Thanks for commenting! 💕
Great message for us all. I hope that I never stop learning… and playing.
Thanks, Janis, and I have the same hopes. 🙂 Have a good week ahead!
Thank you for the encouragement to make each day count 🙂
You’re very welcome, Ian, and thank you for your continued support to my blog. ☺🙏
Lauren, a beautiful and uplifting post … the perfect start to my Sunday morning! 😀 It is easy to fall into moments of lows and last year I decided to allow myself a few minutes here and there of these before striding forth again. Last week completed a dream I’ve had for a long time … of my own garden writing studio! All ready and moving in this week – it gives such a boost and I’m hoping for many positive creative hours in there!
Thanks, Annika! I’m happy to brighten your day! Your garden writing studio sounds wonderful and I’m so happy your dream is coming to fruition. I have no doubt that creativity will flourish in the many hours you will enjoy in your special place. And I can’t wait to read that creativity in the near future! My dream of publishing another book is drawing closer, too. Boxes are getting checked off, so hopefully by late March or sometime in April, I’ll be able to share the exciting news. These dreams and goals are what keep us going. Thanks for stopping by! 💓
The older I get, Lauren, the more precious I realize my time is. A wonderful positive post about making the most of life. ❤
I feel the same way, Diana. The big 60 is coming up quickly for me and my husband is a year ahead of me. Time is definitely precious. I’m so glad you enjoyed this post of inspiration. Have a wonderful evening. 💗
Your reminder is welcome. Just beautiful, thank you.
Thanks, Audrey. I’m glad you liked this reminder. I think we all need a boost once in awhile. xo
Thanks for your words of wisdom Lauren!
It is important to make time to be still, dream, play and get to work. Each is of equal importance.
Thanks for your wise comment, too, Lisa. And I like how you wrote that each one is just as important as the other – so true. Hugs and blessings…💗
My pleasure, Lauren! Enjoy your day. 🙂
Thanks, you too, Lisa! 💗
Beautifully said. Love the message
Thank you very much! 💕
Thank you for the boost Lauren 💕
You’re welcome, Val. We all need a boost now and then. I know I do. 🙂 💓
A wonderful and uplifting post, Lauren. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Thanks for your kind words, Mark. 🙂
Thanks for the uplifting inspiration in this post Lauren. If we don’t have dreams, we’d have nothing to look forward to. ❤
I’m glad you enjoyed this, Deb. A little inspiration is necessary every now and then. 🙂 xo
Absolutely! 🙂 xx
