Castles...in the Air!

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."

Henry David Thoreau

I liked this one today.  I sort of feel like I have been crafting castles in the air...and somehow forgot to put a foundation there....I can see the image of this giant, pretty, heavy castle standing on match-stick stilts.  (Then I found one on the internet!)

What are some of the true solid pieces of a good foundation?
1. Good Health, physical, mental---taking care of yourself
2. A Routine...for all you want to accomplish
3. Organization
4. Goals, big and small, and a time frame for accomplishment
5. Spirituality, a realization of our connection to the WHOLE (this goes to a higher sense of purpose and being in this world, and a more enlightened and accepting perspective of all around us.
6. A source of income

Well, that's what I could come up with this morning.  What can you add to this foundation, or conversation?  Don't be shy, comment away, your thoughts and feelings are always important:)  Have a wonderful and prosperous day.

P.S. Over 80,000-100,000 people attended is what I meant to say!
