I’ve been pouring over my proof copy of SALSA! The Taste of Life, my new book coming out soon to your local bookstores. It occurred to me that I am in a great place in my life right now ! Then this song popped in my head and so I had to share it with you, my amazing audience. So now I’ll get back to some more weeding out of last minute typos! HAPPY LABOR DAY 🙂
So you may be asking what am I so happy about. Today I have reached 11,000 views for my blog! I want to thank everyone who has ever stopped by to read my blog. You might think what’s the big deal? Well, I like to celebrate success whether it’s big or small, an achievement is an achievement right? Of course right! 😀 So today I leave you with some funny pics and remember to keep going in whatever path you have chosen for yourself because winners never quit and quitters never win!
Have we become so callous as a human race that we can’t say anything nice when some one passes away? People would rather speak badly of the ones who go before us than remembering them for anything good they may have done in their lives. We are all human. We all make mistakes. Not one of us is perfect. So before any one of us casts a stone at someone who has fallen, look inside yourself and see if you’ve arrived…chances are you’re like the rest of us are: WORKS IN PROGRESS.

DARE TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS
Just the other day you came to mind. I thought of where I was when I was your age. For 12 years I heard all THEY had to say. At 19, I was on my own and I set out; my dreams I had to find.
You have a specific purpose; a definite place to be. Some call it this, others call it that. I have learned its one name: DESTINY. The one thing that you dream of doing; it’s always on your mind. beginning with your waking hour, even when you close your eyes at night.
This IS the path you must take. Follow it don’t be afraid to make a mistake. You will find opposition, others will distract you. You will also run into discouragement and face resistance.
But consider this: The Picassos, Monets and Da Vincis of this world, would not have been their greatest had they not followed their dreams; and settled for far less than they were called to be.
