#680 Set a goal and go for it - Поставить цель и пойти на это

Dreams can inspire you, but goals can change your life. 

Are you waiting for your dreams to come true and change your life? 

I am sorry to tell you that dreams don’t come true.  Rather, it is your goals that can forever change your life. If your dreams do come true, you are one in a million, but what did you do to make your dreams come true? Was it that you set yourself a goal and went for it? 

I used to confuse dreams and goals. Dreams are easy. They are free, too. 

However, dreams by themselves are just that… dreams. They are imaginary. And they don’t produce tangible results. You need to turn your dreams into action. You need goals to make the visions of your dreams real. 

Goals are all about action. Goals turn dreams into reality. Goals Do Come True, and goals can change your life.  Sometimes it only takes one step to change a dream into a goal. Yet, it can take years to take that goal to the finish line. 

Remember, Always dream big, but make sure your goals are just as big. Because dreams don’t come true… but goals do. So what are you waiting for.. Go for it!!

I have come to associate the arrival of spring with the fragrance of Lilac and Lavender and I fall under its spell. I love this time of year when the lilacs bloom. The lilac bush in my front garden is in its prime, and every time that I walk by on the way to or from my front door, the air is filled with its intoxicating scent, and keep it around my house, in my lounge room and bedroom.  Did you know that environmental scents are used to promote physical and psychological health. Potential sources of restorative odours in the urban environment are sometimes grouped into four categories; Fresh air (Wind and Airflow), trees and plantings, water and waterways, and pleasing aromas from non natural sources. 

The aromas such as basil, thyme, mint, lilac and lavender are intoxicating to me and I have heard that it is shown to be helpful in reducing headaches and inflammation and in improving sleep, digestion and blood circulation. 

The olfactory gland is to blame for our love of scents, it pulls at the heartstrings of our memories and emotions and in the olden days our taste buds.

#678 I can't talk to you anymore....

When we think of abusive relationships, we often picture black eyes and broken bones. But while abuse often escalates to physical violence, it does not start out that way. In fact, abusers are often charming, attentive, and sweet in the beginning of a relationship. An abuser will work to make you feel so appreciated and loved, you won’t even notice he is controlling you — sometimes, until it’s too late. But, there are warning signs we can look out for, to help us spot an abusive relationship, before it goes too far. 

1. He will romance you. He will buy you flowers and gifts. He will likely be the most romantic man you have ever met. He will pay attention to you and make you feel special and wanted. You may find yourself thinking that he is too good to be true — because he is. He needs you to trust him and develop feelings for him, because it is much easier to control someone who loves you.  

2. He will want you all to himself. He will glare at other men for looking at you and question you about your male friends. You may think this jealousy is cute, or even loving — at first. But soon, he’ll make you feel guilty for spending time with friends or family. He will call or text you several times a day, and may accuse you of flirting or cheating. He will say he loves you so much, he can’t stand the thought of anyone else being near you. And soon, no one else will be. This is the beginning of isolation. 

3. He will play the victim. If he gets in trouble at work, it’s someone else’s fault. If he has a bad day, someone is out to get him. And if he is upset, he will blame you for his feelings and actions. He will expect you to make him happy and fulfilled — and when he’s not, he will blame you. He may apologize for yelling, putting you down, or hurting you, but will always find a way to make it your fault. He will say things like, “It’s just that I love you so much,” or “I wish you didn’t make me so crazy.” Eventually, he will blame you for making him hit you. 

Don't ever think it is right to stay, there is help in many ways. Time to get out before no 3 takes hold.
