    I agree but the society that we live in is all about me and the Lord tells us it is all about Him. I prefer to live for him and like it that way. Have a great day and good luck on your journey.

Another Week in the Books

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Here it is Saturday and another week has passed us by. As I look back, it was an enjoyable week, well spent. The upcoming week promises to be good too with softball games, ballet recitals and this week's chapter of the great pizza quest where the wife and I explore Atlanta, searching out the best pizza in town. It's Thursday night treat and knowing it is coming allows us to plan for it calorie wise.

  


Think Highly of Yourself!

Friday, April 30, 2010

Think Highly of Yourself because the World Takes you at your own estimate.

SparkPeople Translation
Take a minute and think about your self-esteem. Do you think highly of yourself? Are you always giving 110%? Do other people look up to your positive attitude? There are times in all of our lives when we could use a self-esteem boost. It is easy to get discouraged in our fast paced society. It is crucial for you to remember that you must always think highly of yourself because most people only see how you treat yourself. So, think about it. Are you giving a message to others that says, I am successful, I give 110%, I like challenges, etc.

    You have no idea how much I agree with this. We should be our own best friend. Thank you for the reminders!

    I once had a teacher give me A+++ on an assignment and at first I thought they were being very silly but after talking to them about it I realized it was the grade I should be giving to them! That grade has stayed with me over the years as a target to aim for on everything - now I just need to find someone as brilliant as that professor to mark me again! heheh

Let Your Torch Shine Bright!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Life is not a 'brief candle.' It is a splendid torch that must be made to burn as brightly as possible before it is handed on to the next generation.

- George Bernard Shaw, Irish critic and playwright
