Do You Travel The Train of Life?

Life is a journey~

On a train with its stations, with changes of routes and with accidents.

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side.

However, at some station our parents will step down from the  train, leaving us on this journey alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant, our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life. 

Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize that they vacated their seats! This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers…requiring that we give the best of  ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is:  We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.

So, we must live in the best way – love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.

It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty –  we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will  continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey for the coming years on the  train of life. 

Reap success and give lots of  love.

More importantly, thank God for the journey!

Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train!

Just Let it Increase

                              Share your joy and it will increase.


I am so happy with my new theme and of course a huge thank-you to  Donah

My previous post explains it all.

You will have to peek at my ‘about me’ page that Donah tweaked for me.

Thank-you for your kindness and patience with me as we are busy tweaking here and there.

I want to wish you all a fabulous Easter Weekend.

Please remember to always count your blessings and to wear a smile.

I am smiling big.

Please Be Patient

You will see some changes on my blog throughout the day. I ask that you please be patient with me and maybe check back in on the weekend.

I am excited!  Have yourself a wonderful weekend.

Here is a beautiful quote I found this morning when I got home from the gym.

“Far away in the sunshine are my highest inspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.”
– Louisa May Alcott

The Easiest Way to Stay in Shape


One of my favorite ways to stay in shape is also one of the easiest ones out there — walking!

It’s a healthful habit to adopt, and because you can do it anywhere, it’s also one of the cheapest ways to get in shape. No need for a gym membership or a trainer; we all know how to walk! The challenge is to find ways to take more steps each day.

Why is walking so great for your body?

Well, you’re burning calories, but you’re also improving your cardiovascular health. The simple act of moving is great for your heart and legs and for relieving stress. Focus on breathing deeply and walking with good posture and you’ll also be working your core muscles.

It’s easy to sneak in more walking during the day!

Get off the train a few stops earlier, park farther from the mall, and walk instead of drive to the coffee shop in the morning.

Make yourself tiny promises: You’ll circle the block twice before you buy your lunch; you’ll take the elevator instead of the stairs whenever possible.

If you want, purchase an inexpensive pedometer — it hooks onto your clothing and counts your steps for you. You should aim for 10,000 steps a day, but do the best you can!

You’ll be amazed at how quickly the steps add up. Just push yourself to increase your number each day you’ll get there, one step at a time!

If I am not at the gym,  I am outdoors enjoying a run or power walk.

Stair climbing is another one I like.

Work at your own pace and enjoy whatever fitness you choose.

Be proud!



The Only Way to Start


Spring and all its beauty~

I love to get up early on a Monday morning and head out to the GYM, and especially love to be able to enjoy all the beautiful blossoms that I can see while on the elliptical. 

Some people hate Mondays.

I suppose going to the gym and getting my sweat on works for me and my Mondays seem calmer.

Enjoy your day to the fullest~

Remember to count your blessings.
