"One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (The Little Prince)
As we talked about pursuing our dreams last week,
Most of you informed me that you are in the process of writing a book
or finally making time for that one special thing you've been putting off.
So how did your week go?
I wish I could say that mine went as planned, but in life, I’ve realized long ago that there are those unexpected one way streets or scenic drive!

With or without Garmin or Tom-tom, you just have to keep driving to get to your destination.
So I hit a few bumps here and there, but I didn't stop - so don't you stop either!

Just be patient, you’ll get there…

This week I was reminded that “all grown-ups were children first!” (Don’t you love the book, “The Little Prince?” )

I can’t believe I forgot that there were so many experiences in my childhood that made me who I am!

Can you remember one childhood experience that changed your life – or your purpose in life?

Before I say "so-long for now"....

This weekend marks the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) - a time to start new;
A new chapter of your life - or better - a new totally new book!
A new book of memories, challenges, trials, and successes!

Happy New Year ...and keep following your dreams!

Big Hugs and until next Saturday…

  1. There are bumps along the way but they can be used as a catalyst to push further. In this case, that was me for sure.

  2. Oh, I love Le Petit Prince!!!

    Something dramatic that changed my life or my purpose in life? Being a mother. I never really wanted to be a mother until I had my own children. I was very focused on my career, but when J came along, my priorities totally changed. :)

    Have a good weekend!

  3. I guess having children changed all my priorities.

    Have a great weekend, Jenjen

    ((hugs and kisses))

  4. I think losing my dad at the age of 17 really made me realize that I had to accomplish those important goals in life...BUT,
    Most important that experience taught me that family and friends mean everything and never take that for granted!!! :)
    So I try to pass that on to my children as well... :)
    Great post...Have a fantastic weekend!

  5. I missed You JenJen!

    My boys changed my life completely..before children it was always about me. Now I love watching them becoming men..growing and even struggling. (that hurts me the most) the struggles they face..but without them they'd never learn..

  6. I've missed you Jen! You are so right, life doesn't always go as planned, but we can't stop looking ahead.

  7. Visiting and following from MBC

  8. Dear friends – thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts!

    @Chocolate Covered Dreams – I’m totally with you – bumps are just there to just challenge us and push us to continue on…

    @Buckeroomama – That’s interesting! You’re such a mom that I thought you’ve always had children in your goals. But yes, once we heart that first cry of our child – we knew that it’s the best thing in our lives~

    @Veronica – Yup! Children do change our priorities. They do make us harder but there’s a lot of joy in seeing their smiles!

    @BrnEyedGal – I’m sorry that you lost your Dad at a young age. Your experiences do mould who you are…

    @Tami – I missed you, too! Glad to see you here. As long as we have our eyes on that goal, no matter what detours we face, we just have to move on..

    @Anne – thanks for stopping by…and welcome to GottaLoveMom!

    Have a great week everyone..and see you next week!

  9. @Pam, I missed you, too! We do inspire one another! Keep pursuing that dream no matter what!

    See you next Saturday!

  10. Yes, it's right that bumps lead us to go further. It brings good luck in the long run. So if you have patience, you've got love too.

  11. Ah, what a beautiful post, Jen! This week hasn't been too bad. I've been back on plan as far as my body and my health are concerned, and I have taken more time out to spend with my husband and son. I've noticed that all of our lives and relationships are better when I'm not glued to this computer! :-) LOL!

  12. I miss you!
    I hope you are chasing your dream and have it by the tail, if not fully within your grasp!
    Be safe


  13. Great post - I'm going to have to keep in mind that I was a child once too the next time my daughters are driving me a little crazy!

    Following you from MBC...

  14. @Jennifer - your health is important...and yeah - just live life !As William Wallace said, "Every man dies but not every man really lives!"

    @Lori, I'm taking it one step at a time - turtle steps actually!
