Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. We start another week full of opportunity and challenges. It is up to each one of us what we make of both. Are we going to seize all of the opportunities that are before us and do with them all that we can? Are we going to take each challenge one at a time and find a way to turn it into a positive experience? I say YES to both and hope you do as well. The upcoming week will be what we make of it. Start today and each day forward with this mindset and watch what you can accomplish. I am here to help in any way I can so just ask. Now, make the most of it!  


Think About this

Should you find it hard to get to sleep tonight;
Just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.

Should you find yourself stuck in traffic; don't despair.
There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work;
Think of the man who has been out of work for the last three months.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad;
Think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend;
Think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week, for -15.00 to feed her family.

Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance;
Think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror;
Think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking "what is my purpose";
Be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities;
Remember, things could be worse. You could be them!!!
