To Do List

  ”Today’s accomplishments were yesterday’s impossibilities“.
                                                                   ~Robert H. Schuller
The possibility of transformation is as intriguing as the intricate patterns of a snowflake. In some things we should never reinvent the wheel. But your life isn’t a burger stand it’s an orchestra’s finale of grandest proportions. It’s the first winter snow come early. It’s going to be whatever you want it to be. But you have to think BIG. You have to dream the impossible and far-fetched. You have to know that if you shoot for the moon, you will at least land in the stars.
Life is long, so we have to fill it.  We are never to old to start over.  I first learned about the life list on Oprah.  There was a guest who was 86 and had just graduated from college.  He had decided to make a list of all the things he wanted to accomplish and he set out making the items on his list come to life. His age had nothing to do with what he wanted to do. His heart did.
Not long after that Rob Reiner...
