   Hi Again!
So what is this all about? Daily Thoughts - some sort of daily advice with profound pronunciations of wisdom? Nope - not even remotely. Just something I started doing to remind myself of those tiny little events that happen each and every day that make life... enjoyable - bearable - good - and most of all - worth while. With so much going on, it is way too easy to focus on the challenges and problems of day to day existence. I have found myself virtually skipping past the good stuff to try and FIX all of the other stuff. Soooo - in my quest to really slow down and smell the roses, I started my own little Daily Thoughts diary. This is truly not explosive, brain surgery, rocket science kind of stuff. Perhaps though, it will inspire you to slow down and take notice of those miniscule things we are too quick to let pass us by. How to do that? Look at one Daily Thought every day. Pick a time that will help get your positive brain waves flowing - with a cup of coffee in the AM or a glass of wine in the PM or whenever you can grab a few seconds of your own. See if it inspires you too...and let me know what you think.
Enjoy!
Kelli Jo
