I’ve neglected more than my work the past two days. It’s rare things like this happen. The last time I was entranced like this, it lasted more than a week.
In fact, it went on until I had finished the 5th book in one series and the 3rd in the second series. I had searched for a book to fill the void in my life since I finished The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. Months of searching only made me more desperate.
HERE’S TO CHOOSING TO TURN THE PAGE & QUOTE #7
Then it happened. I stumbled upon a book on-line, read about it briefly and couldn’t get it out of my mind. I don’t read a lot of YA fiction books, but then, I also don’t believe many of the books I have read in that genre are for teenagers at all. It’s rare that I find a book or series I fall in love with, but when I do… forget about it! Reading the book(s) usually include sleepless nights, lots of take-out and a complete disregard for my friends and any plans I have that can be changed with ease. After a day of contemplating trying another YA fiction book, I caved and downloaded Sanctum (Guards of the Shadowland, Book 1) by Sarah Fein and it did not disappoint! Check it out! I’m sure you will love it as much as I did!
Do you remember when DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air dropped beats together?
I know you remember the song “Parents Just Don’t Understand.” OH YEAH… I’m still cool even though I’m a mom. Even my typing has swagger.
Here’s to DJ Jazzy Jeff (AKA Jazzy), Will Smith, & Quote #6
The only thing holding me back from being “über cool,” is trying to help my kids with math homework.
So today’s VERY INSPIRATIONAL quote of the day is for all parents who have yet to figure it out… may we join together and take solace in knowing that none of us (yes, none of us), have it all figured out, and once again, that we are “NOT” smarter than our 6-year-olds.
100 Quotes to Live By : Day 5
If someone tells you that your dreams aren’t realistic, ask them if they are content with mediocrity? Most likely, they won’t want to answer the question because the answer is probably yes.
Dreams really do come true. Did you know that James Cameron had a dream. His dream: The Terminator. At the time of his dream, his greatest accomplishment was Piranha II: The Spawning.
Einstein’s Theory of Relatively supposedly stemmed from a dream he had about Cows and an electric fence.
Although James Cameron and Einstein’s dreams may not be the same as yours, it doesn’t mean they didn’t seem unrealistic at the time. The only thing that would make your dreams different: Whether you choose to go after them or not.

Let’s Make Magic
Friday’s are my favorite, but just because the weekend is around the corner, and I’ll get some wind down time, doesn’t mean I’m stepping on the brakes just because it’s the end of the week. In fact, I do the opposite.
Friday’s are like the last stretch in a race. You have two choices, let your fatigue get the best of you, or give it all you’ve got for the last leg. I prefer staying ahead of my competition and giving it my all. Join me by making some magic today! It’s your day to make things happen! Do all you can today to finish up the week with greatness!

100 Quotes to Live By : Day 2
Do all things with passion or don’t do them at all.
Your Passion Is Your Vital Spark! It’s Your Calling! You’ve got to love what you do. If you don’t, then START DOING WHAT YOU LOVE. Whether it’s your full-time job, or a hobby, you have to do it for you!
There is nothing worse than listening to excuses people make for not doing what they love. I’ve heard excuses that range from not having the time, to not having enough money. Consider this message the universe in action, begging you to stop talking about the reasons you can’t do something to just doing it.
Trust me, I’ve been there! I made so many excuses for not following my dreams that I almost started believing them! I thank God Every Single Day that I finally woke up and decided to stop the excuses and start making my dreams a reality. Can you believe that all it took was making a decision for myself and sticking to it? It wasn’t easy, and there wasn’t a day I didn’t question whether I was making the right decision or not. It definitely didn’t happen overnight, but it happened, it’s still happening, and it makes me happier than I’ve ever been!

Here’s To Today Being Ridiculously Amazing, & Of Course, Quote #1
Never did I think that at 39-years of age, I would still be learning a thing or two about friendship. I’m blessed to have strong women in my life I call my friends. I owe my loyalty to them because they have never made me question theirs. Yes, loyal people really do still exist.
10 Things I learned about friendship from amazing women I call “My True Friends”
- Loyal people do still exist.
- We are all fighting hard battles, and we have to remember that about each other. Our battles may not be the same, but they affect us nonetheless.
- When someone breaks you down, your true friends will make you smile again.
- Never underestimate the power of a kind word or even a smile. Sometimes a simple gesture is all a friend needs during hard times to make them feel better.
- Your best friends can hear you, even when you are quiet.
- When someone wants to be in your life, they will seriously make an effort to be in it; that’s a true friend… and you should do the same for them.
- Communication is about listening to your friends, just as much as talking to them.
- Friends love you, even when you aren’t so lovable.
- You never have to impress a great friend just to keep them around.
- They don’t forget you when you move across country, or aren’t around as much. You know the saying, “Out of site, but NOT out of mind.”
I know my true friends know who they are, not just because of my list above, but because they know who I am, and where our friendship stands.
It’s really a simple concept…
Stay focused, Be Positive, & Above All, Don’t Quit.
