As I was driving down the road this morning, I saw a mother duck with eight little ducklings following her.  They crossed the road as quick as their little feet would carry them.  As they ran, they were all in a group trying to keep up with one another.  When they got to the curb, one by one they jumped up a distance that was twice as big as they were.  The last one took one jump, two jumps, and finally a third before getting on top of the curb.  Then, off they went again.  It made me stop and think,” Who am I following? “ It reminded me of the old song, “Got it get going, where am I going, what am I going to do.”  In today’s world we are all busy, rushing here and there.  Is what you are doing really important you?  Are you blindly following someone or something? Where are you going?  What are you going to do once you get there?  I would suggest that you develop a mission statement for your life. And, do activities that bring you closer to that statement.  If you need help, that is part of what we do in Life Coaching.  Give me a call.

Really good to remember. Later in life it becomes even more important to make a plan as we can build on our experiences to accomplish what we want in the future. Thanks Valerie!
