Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier.  The way it actually works is the reverse.  You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.  ~Margaret Young

On Tuesdays, I attend a BNI – (Business Networking International) meeting early in the morning. Part of my role in this group is to read a quote that closes the meeting each week. And so, even earlier, every Tuesday morning, I comb through books and quote websites to find little pearls of wisdom that I would like to share. Today, I found the above quotation and decided that this felt like the right one for the day. Each week, I am often inspired by these quotations to spin-off into a blog, though most times, I find that my time runs out, and I leave half-written entries in my documents folder in hopes of getting back to them later in the day. It looks like that’s going to happen again today – but since my day often does not afford me the time to swing back around and finish the posting, I thought that this time I will just post it and leave things at that.

So, though my inclination and desire is to expound on this little item, I really must move along or risk being late for the day’s events. And so on that note, I leave you with this above sentiment; to consider, to ponder and to reflect about, on your own. It had a certain ring of truth to it, that resonated with my core and I just wanted to share it. Wishing you an “authentic” day. Peace out – LB
