It's been awhile, I know, and for that I am sorry. But I have not forgotten! I have been so busy lately it is unreal... but so very good. By staying busy and focused on what I am doing now, I will reach my goals by the time I want, if not before, and then I can take some time to relax a little bit. I was raised with the concept of "get your work done, then you can have fun", so needless to say, I'm doing just that. Plus, there's your charming rhyme of the day!
It's so very true though, that idea. I have learned that a little delayed gratification and self-discipline can go a long way in the end. It may not always be the easiest or most comfortable choice, but the rewards are priceless. I get what I want in better or greater quantities of enjoyment, plus benefit from personal growth. Not to say I've got things all figured out or am better than anyone in the slightest. I'm learning just like everyone else. I am smart enough to know I know nothing and that I can learn from the experiences of those who have gone before me and are where I want to be or from those who know what I want to learn. It just takes an adaptable attitude of being coachable and an open mind with which to improve oneself.
I would share more right now, but it's Father's Day and I'm going to go take care of the lunch business! Burgers with avocado and bacon sounds SO good right now. Have a great week! I'll do my best to take more time next time and not just a couple minutes!
