What I'm Learning


After reading some of the reviews, I see that the author helps one discover how to set realistic goals, how to cope with our mindset to overcome doubt and negativity and stage fright and replace those with self-accountability, self-discipline, and self-leadership. I like stories that reveal comebacks, second chances, motivation, perseverance and inspirational victories!

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what? get started now!" 
          -- Anna Stevens

I'm really looking forward to reading more since it goes beyond a children's picture book (which I'm always reading) and has 124 pages! The book has received lots of praise.

"Anna provides practical information in a format that is easy to follow." -- Bambi S. Bellflowers

"I would recommend the book to anyone needing direction, or someone that just wants to find out more about how they really think or what they believe." -- Jen K

Mostly we have warm daily temperatures here in SoCal, but there are some days where these 'smart layers' of clouds threaten us with a few showers and then they head out towards the mountains. I love this valley view. As you can see, the hills are not very green as we continue to experience drought conditions. The contrast is so huge between us and other parts of the U.S. having a hard winter this year. This week the kids will be on their Spring Break as we head towards Easter.
