Stage Fright October 17, 2006

When I first created my blog, I was so hyped. I had all these really cool ideas about stuff that I have an opinion on, or need to rant about. However, I’m now finding it a challenge to come up with half an idea every third day, then forget to make a note of it (cuz I’m at work, and I should be working!), and it’s gone forever. Kinda like when you were a kid, looking up at the helium balloon that you just begged mommy to buy you…you  know..one of those foil ones that you see in hostipals and nursing homes…floating up up up into the sky. And you know it’s never coming back. Bye Bye great idea!!!! 

So, here I sit, wondering what to write. I have never really been one to just let thoughts or words or feelings flow. If you know me, you’re probably surprised….I never seem to be out of opinons, or rants, or just general funny stuff. It’s like I’m back in grad 1…up on a stage in a school play. The lights are really bright, and make it hot. I know my lines. They are right there in my head! But, it’s like someone has sewn my lips together, and my tongue is stuck to the roof of my mouth.

Here’s a quote I just found. It was actually on a  site I totally came across by accident..it was on a “404 not found page”. When would I EVER come across that page again?

“Sometimes, in order to really learn something in life, you have to screw it up the first time around.”

~ Kimberly D. WellsCreative Opportunist

This makes me think that there are always second chances. I think that I’ve made enough screw ups by now, the 2nd time for everything must be coming around by now!

It’s Between You and God August 19, 2006

 Although I am not a religious person, I found this quote by Mother Theresa beautiful. I found it on a friend’s blog, and thought I’d borrow it. Thanks Katt!

If you find serenity and happiness others may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today people will often forget tomorrow
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
And on those days when it all seems to be too much,
just do what you can to get through the day.
For spirit is working through you anyway.
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centred; forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, others may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank People may cheat and betray you.
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
You see in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It never was between you and anyone else anyway.
by Mother Teresa
