:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss
of enthusiasm.

Winston Churchill

:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

I really like this quote, it is what I do most of the time. Now and then I get a little depressed of all the failures but then another idea hits me and I get enthusiastic again... I could compare it to "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expect a different result" cause it seems I never learn some things either...

Went to my friends house and washed her dishes yesterday evening, it took a while before I understood that she was really embarrassed over me helping her, funny, I hardly gave it a thought. I comined goodness with pleasure because we also walked the dogs together and Merlin got to play with cheeta. He could stay there while I got to the theatre - we are planning our summer show and I find the creative meetings really frustrating. I am going to be some sort of speaker, I am thinking about adaptin a character like dameEdna, I think I could do that .

Food was chaotic, fail to plan is really planning to fail...

    You are always willing to take on new challenges; even when they are not comfortable. I consider you a success! emoticon

    Hang in there... That's funny that your friend was embarrassed... was it a BIG pile of dishes? Did they grow feet? (We have this saying that if you leave the dirty dishes alone for long enough they will grow feet and go away by themselves...). :)

    Success is a funny thing. It rarely comes to me on the first try. I have to learn creeds for my martial arts classes. We learn a new one for each rank. Here's one of my favorites:

"I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed; and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail, and keep on trying." -Tom Hopkins-

One of the managers where I work tells us that if we aren't making mistakes, we aren't working. I make a lot of mistakes, so I guess that means I "work" a lot! LOL!

P.S.... I would wash my friend's dishes too.
