Some of my favorite things to do are reading, listening to podcasts and music, and watching TV shows and movies. Inevitably, while consuming stories and information, I come across quotes that affect me or pertain to my life or the lives of those around me. Most of these blog posts explore those quotes.
In the last two months I’ve participated in two really fun fundraising events benefiting my community. It was really wonderful to be surrounded by so many people who had either donated their time or money in support of something.
And it makes me think about all the ways that people could really be making a difference in the world. And how fortunate I am to be able to do small things to help others who are in need.
I started a new non-fiction / self- improvement book the other day… okay, last week. But I’ve been finding myself a little unenthusiastic to get into it.
Does that ever happen to you with books? Or with life? You choose a book – or you choose to do a thing – and then you let yourself get distracted, or you procrastinate seemingly for no reason.
Happy Valentine’s Day readers!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day, filled with candy hearts and sappy love songs.
I am not feeling well.
I have been in a state of not feeling well for over a month now. I’ve caught some crazy cold that seems to be a rollercoaster of worsening symptoms, then better and back again while never really going away and I tell ya, it is not pleasant.
There’s a quote I’ve been pondering lately… “Never give up on a dream because of the amount of time it will take to accomplish it”.
“I’m not sure why, but for as long as I can remember, I’ve always found myself a little sad on New Years Eve…” My thoughts on nostalgia, hope, and ideas for the future.
A short follow up to my last post, Making a Life, in which I stated that it was time to start recognizing my values and begin taking the necessary actions.
It turns out that knowing that you need to get your priorities straight is a lot easier than actually straightening them.
“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”
Only time will tell how these new challenges will play out… “It wasn’t that things were harder than you thought they were going to be, it was that things were hard in ways you didn’t expect.”
“It’s almost Halloween and I still don’t know what I want to be for the rest of my life.” My take on Halloween – costumes, movies, and of course quotes.
