On your mark, get set...

March 26, 2014 - 1:27pm
"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can," tennis legend Arthur Ashe once said. What a great thing to remember every day. Who hasn't fallen into the trap of "I wish" or "if only?" I wish I had more time so I could do this. I wish I had more money so I could do that. If only I was younger I would make that happen. If I were smarter I would change things. Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. You might be a young person, just starting out. You might be a working mom without any free time. You might be low on finances or without a job. You might be in a place far from home. You might be someplace you wish you weren't and you might not have all the things you wish had. Do what you can. You might be a young person just starting out. You might be a working mom without any free time. You might be low on finances or without a job. You might be in a place far from home. You might be someplace you wish you weren't and you might not have all the things you wish had.
