Something to think about...

``If you think you can, you can. If you think you can`t, you`re right.`` Mary Kay Ash

``The tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.`` Benjamin Mays

``Ideals are like stars: you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you will reach your destiny. `` Cal Schurz

Live and Learn...

Where is this year, 2009, going? I am amazed that February began today. Life has been just grand. I fell like I worked the month of January away, but I am grateful for that, because it means that I have a job, that I have to abiity to work. I work with amazing people. Auditions were held on Saturday, January 24th for Sleeping Beauty, the ballet. I was very happy with the turn out. It was difficult deciding which dancer would be best for each part. But the casing list went up on Monday and rehearsals began on Friday. I must admit it was nice to have something to do Friday night. We learned almost the entire first act on Friday. It will again be a beautiful ballet performed in March.

I am ready for spring and even summer. I am a much larger fan of the warm weather and spring rain storms than the snow.

Not much has happened this year, which is actually kind of nice. Last year was a very tough and emotional year. I don't think I could handle another year like last year. This year has been a bit rough as well, especially lately. But I have to keep plugging along. Life is what you make of it after all. Everyone will face challenges and it how each decides to over come those challenges that is important. I am trying to take each challenge, heart break and struggle with stride. I will admit that it is not easy, but apparently there are lessons to learn and thru these experiences I will learn the lessons I need to. I hope and pray that I learn the lessons needed so that I don't have similar experiences again. I was reminded this week that everyone makes mistakes. One important thing to remember is to learn from each mistake and not repeat that mistake again. LIVING AND LEARNING!
