This is a check up journal to see what your all about? I m a writer and businessman. I write short essays on any subject that interest me. This morning it's you. Why you? well why not? Have you ever sat down, layed down, walked, etc and thought about what you really want out of life? Do you have short term goals, long term goals. Are your life goals important enough for you to write down? The obvious answer to that question is yes... but has procrastination or having a busy life kept you from doing it? ... The answer to that one is probaly yes also? Well in order to understand yourself better I highly recommend that you take the time to do this important life priority task for yourself. I promise you it will bring more order and clearity to your life.

As we all move through the daily trials and tribulations of life there are ups and downs for all of us. The important thing to remember is to not allow outside influences affect how you deal with you life. What do I mean by that? Well, an example is all the negative news that we all are subjected to on a daily basis. Don't allow negative influences, news, family, friends, whatever to dictate how your personal mindset will be. Work daily towards maintaining a positive mental outlook on yourself and your life. This is important not only for you but those that are around you i.e. your family and friends. Be that shining light of hope, positive energy for yourself and those you love. It's very important to identify negative forces in your life and remove them immediatly!... they are a drain on you and everyone around you. Make positive energy and flow your mantra in life!

I have more to say on this subject but I will reserve that for another journal post. I just thought I 'd take the time to examine two positive elements of life that could possible help you in your quest towards maintaining a happy life. That is one of my goals as your LPB-friend. I may not ever talk to you? meet you? in life.... but I still care about your overall well being as a woman on this earth at this time in life. From a brother who cares.

These are just some thoughts that were in my head I thought I'd share. I don't assume you have not set goals... or anything... because I m sure at some point in life we all have. But I sat down the other day and wrote down my present goals, and you'd be surprised how they change over time. Therefore it important do this exercise on regular basis and constantly review update and refine them.

There are two kinds of people in this world... those who have inner strenght, determination and positive attitudes and those who rely and allow outter daily weather, people, attitudes and finances to "bring them down". I am a strong believer in 'ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING"... everything.
Have you ever work up in the morning, not feeling good but looked in the mirror and said... "today is gonna be a great day, im feeling great" even though your alergies are acting up, your head hurts, the bills are past due and your Mother in law is comming to town. This is called faking it, intill you make it, sometimes its just making it through the day. Attitude is everything!
That's right attitude is everything.. and yes we've all had those days... I believe in verbal auto suggestion to the conscious mind - "This too shall pass!" "It's great to be alive! - thank you God for granting me another on Earth - I m going go out there and make it happen" ... stuff like that... right into the mirrow at myself! ... yea I m crazy positive like that... call it self mental brain washing? ... whatever? it works for me... Have a great day!
This goes for me also!

Quit settling and start making your dreams a reality!- Quit being afraid and START LIVING YOUR LIFE! CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT! If you want something different than what you have had in the must quit doing what you have done before and DO something different! JUST QUIT IT ...... and START DOING something to create the experience you want!
Thanks for this...time for me to revamp my goals list since they've changed considerably. Thanks for caring. :)
