Are you Genius, or just Crazy?

Blog quote #788...

"There is a fine line between genius and crazy...and I like to use that line as a jump rope. -Seen on a poster-
Keep in mind that many a genius were once called 'crazy' before the world saw that their outside the box thought or idea, really kicked in. 
Our advice: Keep being 'crazy.'  Do things different. Don't always follow the cattle. Create your own paths.  March to your own melody.
Sometimes, when everyone else thinks you've gone plum mad--you know you are going in the right direction. Follow the heart and gut. It's usually correct.

Definition of a "small town..."

Blog quote #787...

"A small town is a place where there's no place to go where you shouldn't." -Burt Bacharach-
Breeds the question: 
Should we all act as though wherever we live or where we are at the time- is a small town? Hmm...

The best Prize in life...?

Blog quote #785...

"Far and away the best prize that life has to offer, is the chance to work hard at work worth doing." -Theodore Roosevelt-
Whether or not you agree it's the best award life has to give us... it's likely undisputable, that doing work that matters, work that has meaning and impacts others- is a wonderful and noble thing to strive for.
Do we all agree on that?

The Dog and the Doorbell...

Blog quote #782...

"Why do dogs always run to the doorbell when it rings? It's hardly ever for them." -Harry Hill-
Good humor from Mr. Hill here. Especially the word 'hardly.'
Got to love the passion for life a dog exhibits 100% of the time. Something to learn there. Hmm...

Recipe for dealing with Anger...

Blog quote #781...

"My recipe for dealing with anger and frustration: set the kitchen timer for 20 minutes. Cry, rant,and rave, and at the sound of the bell, simmer down and  go about business as usual." -Phyllis Diller-
Seems kind of funny, but it's actually a good strategy. Its OK to get  something off your chest  and have a 'moment', or in this case 20 minutes. As long as you get it out, then move on.
It really doesn't do  any  good for you to hold it all in. And others will pay for that somewhere down the line as well. Let it go, and then, start fresh.

GO For It!

Blog quote #780...

"You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try." -Beverly Sills-
Get in the game. Make that call. Step up to the plate. Try for that  prize. Enter the contest. Make that presentation.
You gotta try. If for nothing else, the regret factor. Plus, we're only here on the planet for a blink, might as well squeeze as much out of the orange as you can.

What IS the most attractive piece, anyone can WEAR?

Blog quote #779...

"The most attractive accessory, is a smile." -Victoria Corning-
Can you think of a more beautiful accessory any human could add to their make up, decor, or outfit...than a beautiful, warm, wide grinning SMILE?  An even better question--is there a more important accessory- than the positive energy  a smile radiates to the world.
So, when going out, as Momma used to say--clean briefs, a coat if it's cold, galoshes if raining, and most important, don't ever forget to put on that SMILE.

What's in a Personality?

Blog quote #778...

"Personality begins where comparison ends." -Karl Lagerfeld-
The door is wide open  here for interpretation and comments. Sometimes it's best to open the floor and let you, the reader tell us what went on in your noggin... 
And you say...?

Important addendum, to being persistent

Blog quote #777...

"As important as it is to keep picking yourself up and brushing yourself off, it's also important to stop tripping over your own two feet." -Robert Brault-
Keep going. Stay determined.  Be persistent. Push through. Persevere.Keep tenacious.
But also, we'd be remiss to not remind you to learn from your mistakes along the way. There's really no excuse not to.
That's my view...what say you?
