The problem with Stretching the Truth...

Blog quote #1175... 
"When you stretch the truth, watch out for the snap back." -Ms Terry Quotist-   
Like a rubber band, be careful of the unpleasant rebound that comes with untruths, lies and misleading statements. Always best to be honest, and that way you don't need to have a superb memory of what you told this person, and that fellow, and this one. 
People like dealing with straight shooters. Tell it like it is!

That's my view.. what say you?

Sailing through life's storms...

Blog quote #1174... 
"We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails." -Unknown-  
More statements discussing the power of attitude. While we cannot control the hands that life deals us, we can however, determine just how we will react to what comes our way. And that attitude about how to deal-- makes all the difference in the world. 
It's called a choice, and each of us get them and face them; in fact hundreds per day. As the old saying goes- just CHOOSE to make lemonade with the lemons that life drops off in your grocery basket. Funny thing is, that lemonade often tastes extremely sweet, because of our choice of attitude!

Great point on CARING...

Blog quote #1173... 
"In the end, there doesn't have to be anyone who understands you. There just has to be someone who wants to." -Robert Brault-  
Not sure who Mr Brault is, but this is the fourth or fifth quote we've LOVED from him. 
This message is simple; it's all about CARING. It's about TRYING. It's about giving a hoot. Which will always stand out from the crowd, since it's so few and far between.  
For those who care, please keep doing so. It truly makes a GIGANTIC difference!

Getting INVOLVED in Life...

Blog quote #1172... 
"Maybe life isn't about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it."  - J.Simpson-  
Enough with going through the motions. Lets all get out of the 'stands' and get into the game. Start showing up. Participating with others. Getting involved. Passions ablaze. 
When we start living life like that, everyone will know. Including ourselves!

What do we Really KNOW?...

Blog quote #1171... 
"You know what you know. You know what you don't know. What's scary is...you don't know what you don't know."  - Donald Rumsfeld-  
Let that one gurgle around in your brain for a bit. Fascinating and alarming at the same time. Hmm...

On Friends/ Friendships...

Blog quote #1170... 
"Sometimes friendship is about appreciating each other's differences. It's about who walked into your life said, "I'm here for you, and proved it."- J.Boutagy-  
As we've talked about before at the Think Tank, the word friend can be very loosely interpreted. Many acquaintances, few real true, solid friends. Those that are, are worth their weight in gold. 
Here's to the top shelf friends that are there for you, and  do have a proven track record.

Another Powerful Lesson from our Canine friends

Blog quote #1169... 
"A dog owns nothing, yet seldom is dissatisfied."- Irish Proverb-  
Another one of those deceivingly short quotes, whose importance and relevancy could slip by easily if not given the respect and time to truly ponder. Take a moment to absorb what this message is trying to convey. 
Quite powerful.
