With vision there is no room to be frightened. No reason for intimidation. It's time to march forward! Let's be confident and positive! Charles R. Swindoll

It's amazing how easy it is to go forth with confidence once you get a clear vision of where you want to go. Consider your dreams and goals today and create a detailed image of what you really want -- then get busy taking the steps required to reach your goal.

Remember the words of W. Clement Stone, "If you can conceive it... you can achieve it." Often times we fail to reach our goals because we have not taken the time to visualize what we really want to achieve. We want more. We want to be better. We want to be happy. But to achieve those things we must be more specific. 

Get specific with your goals and dreams today. Add the details and create a vision that is worth striving for.

Today, I am grateful for snow tires, snow plows and the knowledge that we will not need them much longer. I am grateful for blue skies and puffy white clouds that bring rest to the soul. 

I am grateful for the mighty moose that roams the forest, for the whitetail deer that seeks out food and for the cotton tail rabbit that nibbles bark from the trees. 

I am grateful for birds who fill the air with song, add bright color to the world and flit happily from branch to branch. I am grateful for trees that provide shelter and stand strong against the wind. 

I am grateful for family, for friends and for neighbors.

And, I am grateful for you, dear reader, as you stop to share my day. May your vision be clear as you go forward in the direction of your dreams.
