My daughter Traci had been trying unsuccessfully for months to break my granddaughter, Jadyn, of her addiction to a pacifier. Traci used the pacifier to help Jadyn sleep.

Have you ever laid in bed at night when there is no one to impress or no reason to hide your feelings? Have you ever asked yourself, “Am just going through the motions or am I really living fully alive?”
It’s an important question because it is directly tied to the fulfillment and joy we get from life. This post might help you pinch yourself to see the true condition of you life. It’s a pinch I need every day.
In the last two posts I talked about fatigue and procrastination, two enemy’s that keep us from living fully alive. The final enemy of living fully alive: Poor Management of a Little Time!

Tuesday’s post identified fatigue as one of the enemies that keep us from living “Fully Alive.”

Do you want to be all that you were created to be?
Do you want to enjoy life to the fullest?
If so, you must identify and do battle with the enemies that can keep you from achieving those goals. Here comes the first one now!!
