Brand New Day

You never know when you will have a great day. Just when you feel like you are in a rut, WAMMO...something great happens and everything just goes right. That is why you have to just get out of bed everyday and keep trying.

Never give up on your goals....as even when things seem to be slipping out of sight, if you have to have faith in yourself, you can climb to the top.

My four-year-old daughter, Kate, is a major fan of Cinderella. Because of this, we watch the DVD regularly. More often, in fact, than any forty-year-old man would care to admit (but if Cinderella is important to Kate, Cindy is important to me!!!). Our heroine wants to go the party at the prince's palace, but the pesky step mother and sisters keep foiling her dreams. Even after she makes her own gown, they tear it to shred's and laugh at her as they head to the ball.

But the future princess has a turn of fate, and the rest is history. Her dreams come true and those nay-sayers are left behind while she dances with young Mr. Charming.

Your own career has more fairy godmothers and glass slippers than you can imagine. You just have to know where to look for them and never give up. I do believe that all your dreams can come true. It is the Cinderella Theory of the world: Be good to those around you, keep smiling when others treat you poorly, and know that the future holds great possibilities.

***Authors Note: Last week my family visited Disneyland, and Kate got to meet the real Cinderella. This was proof positive that all ones dreams can come true. At four years old she has now met her idol.

Have A Great Day.

Nine years ago I watched Lion King over and over and over and... with my three-year old son. Back then it was on VHS so we couldn't just restart it, we had to rewind. I think I could have written the Great American Novel in the time it took to rewind that movie so many times.

But I now smile at the memory.-)
