Sally was always placing a memory or two into her box of treasure.

Sally was a playful and rambunctious tomboy, and atrepparttar age of thirteen was asked to start handlingrepparttar 141213 chores. No longer could she leaverepparttar 141214 house at sunrise and return inrepparttar 141215 late afternoon after a day filed with adventure and sport.

You see Sally could run, jump, and climb withrepparttar 141216 best ofrepparttar 141217 boys. She could throw and hit a ball with a stick just as well as any ofrepparttar 141218 boys. Often Sally's play was inspired byrepparttar 141219 stories her grandfather once told.

With Sally spendingrepparttar 141220 better part of her day tending to her chores. Her only reward wasrepparttar 141221 end ofrepparttar 141222 day, andrepparttar 141223 time she was able to spend with her faithful dog, Patches, up inrepparttar 141224 old tree house.

Life seemed to stop, for Sally, while she was up inrepparttar 141225 tree house. It was inrepparttar 141226 tree house that Sally started to write of her life andrepparttar 141227 adventures she only dreamed of living.

Sally's diary and stories now where a big part of her treasure box, andrepparttar 141228 memories she once collected would now lay hidden and forgotten underrepparttar 141229 pages of her writing.

Each day was a mystery for Sally as she began to write. As her pencil touchedrepparttar 141230 paper her words would begin to flow. She would write and write until there was no more to write.

It was around Sally's 16 birthday that her dog Patches passed away. Her companion and loyal friend. Patches, was with her allrepparttar 141231 time. As Sally placed Patches' collar into her treasure box, she began to look atrepparttar 141232 treasures she hadn't viewed in many years.

A small hand mirror, one her grandma gave to her little princess. Horse hair, from her favorite horse. The skin shed fromrepparttar 141233 biggest king snake she had ever seen. The perfect stone for skipping acrossrepparttar 141234 water. The treasures were many, a child's lifetime in memories. Buried underneath it all was Sally's first treasure andrepparttar 141235 memory of her grandfather.

How life had changed.

Have something specific to work towards - some purpose in life that really fires you up. Achieving it will feel fantastic and fulfilling - and working towards it will also feel great. Have some focus, some meaning in your life.

"Every day,repparttar happy person does at least one difficult thing." ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Try something new, something that stretches and challenges you. Join an evening class, jog an extra mile, write to a long lost friend, achieve something different - surprise yourself!
