@Duck_Fiabetes I could stir a few “F’s” in my coffee this morning. Ugh!

I just got one last thing, I urge all of you, all of you, to enjoy your life, the precious moments you have. To spend each day with some laughter and some thought, to get your emotions going. To be enthusiastic every day and as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Nothing great could be accomplished without enthusiasm,” to keep your dreams alive in spite of problems whatever you have. The ability to be able to work hard for your dreams to come true, to become a reality.

If you decide that you can do this, you can. You get to decide if you dread this or not. Decide that you don’t. You get to decide if it’s too hard or not. Decide that it isn’t. Find what makes you determined to do this for the long term. I tell myself I don’t have to be excited, or motivated - I just have to be committed and determined. I have to tell myself I’m worth it. I have to remind myself why I’m doing it. There are no excuses good enough for me to allow myself to go completely off the rails.
