ABC's of Achieving your Dreams

As I was on the treadmill this morning, working hard to shake off these winter doldrums, there right in front of me is a poster meant to encourage me in this journey to reclaim a healthy, fit body. The poster tells how to achieve your Dreams and I love it, but as is the way, things placed in front of you on a daily basis tend to loose any dramatic impact on us. We grow accustomed to them and ignore them or take them for granted. Much like the "stuff" in our houses that I write about. When our children were small, we would periodically pack up some of the forgotten toys and bring them out a couple months later. Once again they took on the status of new and exciting once again. I think maybe we should do that with some of our own possessions, might save on the need to shop.
Here is the poem that I look at while on the treadmill. Wise words and full of good advice for achieving those dreams we all have.

Remember Your ABCs
