For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Goethe, tells us:
Nothing is worth more than this day.

Until One Is Committed

Until one is committed There is hesitancy,

the chance to draw back, Always ineffectiveness.

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation),

There is one elementary truth,

The ignorance of which kills countless ideas

And splendid plans:

That the moment one definitely commits oneself,

Then Providence moves too.

ll sorts of things occur to help one

That would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision

Raising in one's favor all manner

of unforeseen incidents and meetings

And material assistance,

Which no man could have dreamt

Would have come his way.
I love this poem by Goethe. Until one is committed . . .
this is a huge issue for people yself included.
Love, Chatty
