To all the early birds!

Good Morning!

Yes it's EARLY!

 M-F I'm usually up around 4:45am...After hitting snooze fifty-two times, I arise. Lol I don't expect a pat on the back  haha but I do want to take the time to salute my fellow early birds!!

Don't be an early worm.

                                                  Oh if you’re a bird, be an early bird
                                           And catch the worm for your breakfast plate.
                                                 If you’re a bird, be an early early bird
                                                      But if you’re a worm, sleep late.

Have a great rest of the day!

Hello :)

So I was thinking....why do we sometimes fear failure? fear messing things up or letting someone down? I read a quote a long time ago... 

"You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take"

-Wayne Gretzky

Pause and dwell on that for a second. Nobody likes that "Wow, I missed out" Feeling... When a friend asks, "why didn't you go?" or "why didn't you say something". We hold back and later regret it. We don't want to admit we were scared...Weather it be fear of the outcome, or someones reaction. Honesty is always the healthy option because it levels everything. I have my share of "what if" moments. Don't dwell on the past but live and LEARN :) There will be plenty of more opportunities that will come along. Moving forward and keeping that in that mind. So take the shot ;)

Have a blessed day :)
