Two reasons to celebrate today!
Hi fellow WA community members! Well I have two reasons to celebrate today - August 2nd, 2016!
One, it is my birthday! I turn 59 years young today! I remember back when I turned 30 in August of 1987 it really was a big and very anxious moment in my life then. I could not believe WAY BACK WHEN that I was turning 30. Where had all the time gone? Now I realize that it was almost half a lifetime ago. Turning 40 and 50 was no big deal. I'll get back to you next year when I turn 60 however!
There has been a new commercial shown on television recently here in the U.S. It is an advertisement for all of the scenic beauty here in the U.S. In the background can be heard the late John Denver's song that at the time he dedicated to his wife, Annie. It goes that at the time they were having issues in their marriage when he wrote this song "Annie's song" which became a big hit in the U.S. peaking at #1 in July of 1974.
The first time I heard this song during that commercial it was as if time stood still. I remember that it was very popular song heard on AM radio when I was still in (egads) high school! Reminiscing I can now easily picture that summer, just about to turn 17 and in the fall to start my senior year in high school! it was my next to last summer working at a day camp, as both my sister and I had been attending since 1969. The summer of 1974 was very interesting for those of us living in the U.S. at the time. Among other things one Richard M. Nixon ended up resigning in disgrace as the country's President in August of that year. 42 years ago!
My point in all of this is that life is short folks! Enjoy every moment that you have on this Earth because, as my late mom often said as part of her many philosophical sayings:
"Life is not promised to you tomorrow".
#2 - Yesterday I received my first commissions earned from Wealthy Affiliate through my promoting this wonderful business opportunity. Yes, it was only $30.50! But that's also $30.50 now in my Pay Pal account that was not there the day before! It's the first small step that I hope to take as I continue to grow one of my businesses here at WA.
Thank you for reading this article. May everyone have a great day as well!
