Welcome February + A Quote


I have a feeling I'm not the only one asking, "where did January go?" as we welcome a new month today. Throughout January I've enjoyed reading via so many of your blogs about your goals, optimism, and intentions for the new year. In short, I sense a collective sentiment that 2010 is going to be the year!

As we continue to make our way into 2010, today I'm doing a little personal inventory of where I am with my goals, making sure I stay aligned with and focused on achieving them. Each new day, month, and year is another gift and opportunity to do our best. With that being said, I'd like to leave you with a little quote that's hot on my mind right now:

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." - Steve Prefontaine

Happy February my dears!

Happy Feb to you too! I so hear you about January flying by. I thought the same thing this morning about re-looking at the goals I set a month ago. I'm doing pretty well overall and I really feel that this is going to be a great year :)

The quote is so true, and it also reminds us that life only asks for our best, our best, not somebody else's. Thanks for getting my mind a thinking! Have a great week!
