Happy Monday, All!

Here’s to hoping your weekends went well. In particular, mine was very nice … and peaceful. There were moments of reflection and reaching out to friends who have been important for me, so now, my turn came! How nice it is to be able to present options for others as we, too, move along our journeys.

Of course, one thing I always like to mention in my communications with others is that part of success, at least my moments of this, come from being well organized in our approach to life. After watching “Red Tails” and handling some unexpected events lately, I had to let go of my “scheduled” more structured approach to things I face. I usually don’t go to the movies mainly because of time but also because I am a loner type and am not involved in any specific relationship … you know … no girlfriend or significant other that I might attend films with. However, the simple fact that this movie hit home on so many fronts for me, I decided to abandon what I usually do and went to the movies alone for personal enrichment. I am glad that I went. What a powerful film with so many lessons … from yesterday or World War II and those applicable for future development and goals.

“Spontaneity is the quality of being able to do something just because you feel like it at the moment, of trusting your instincts, of taking yourself by surprise and snatching from the clutches of your well-organized routine a bit of unscheduled pleasure.” – Richard Iannelli

As this adventure of life unfolds, I will not shy away from it. (TOUCHSTONES January 23rd)

Have a great week!
