Life sometimes sends us a wakeup call. My battle with leukemia was certainly mine. It forced me to think a lot about what is important in life and about my many blessings. Without this wakeup call, sometimes we become complacent and take our lives for granted. Don’t let this happen to you. Let my wakeup call be yours.


Decide what is important to you and put it in the right priority.

Don’t make excuses – make a plan!

Recognize both your successes and failures and the reasons behind both.

Don’t keep putting off things – if you want to do them, you will find a way.

Don’t use other people or events as an excuse – only you are in control of your life – exercise it.

Always have a goal. If you don’t, you will not move ahead.

Appreciate the people who help you, and let them know it!

These are just a few of things that I find important. By sharing them with you, I hope you can find them helpful. They have worked for me. BEST WISHES FOR A HAPPY & SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON!
