Be The Best.

Dog Daze of Summer

Summer should be a time to relax, enjoy and take in the sun with family and friends.

Agreed…even though I’m not that great at it!  As many of you have experienced, probably the most relaxing time is when you get away from the house and normal duties and go up to the lake, cabin, spa, etc.

One thing I love about those times in the summer is the extra time to think and to plan!

Yah, yah, I know, broken record, planning and goal setting.  Ask poor Ingrid, she’s been hearing this for 24 years.

So…not to disturb the summertime vibe, but I know for myself I like to look ahead a little at the fall and ask what I want to accomplish.  I’ve noticed something very interesting happening on Chris’ memorial Facebook site.

It is still a great place people can send messages to Chris and when you put things in writing you are of course sharing them with a broader community and allowing others to help support your goals and dreams as well.

I’ve seen comments about achieving physical fitness goals and pushing forward to new ones.  I’ve seen comments about achieving lacrosse goals.  I’ve seen comments about setting educational goals both for high school and college.


I can’t think of a better way to honour Chris and his memory then by rocking out a few goals!

Enjoy the summer.  Relax (yes, I’m preaching to myself here)….but take a little time to think ahead and put a few things down on that goal list for the fall.

PS  Using Chris’ memorial Facebook page won’t be for everyone but I do encourage all of us to share our goals with someone.  It helps those around you help you to achieve dreams!
