Quote of the Day – ?

“Is it wrong to follow your own blog?”

Mike Hartley

Just for historical sake I didn’t for the first year but one day I wanted to see what my post looked like in the Reader. I felt kind of vain looking at the first few that appeared in the reader and then I realized I need to start coming up with a few good beginning sentences if I wanted to hook people interest and lead with the best image. Now if I could just come up with good images and words this blogging would be a snap. So it has been a learning experience as all of life is.


Quote of the Day – for granted

“Taking any Day or Moment for granted, is a regretful practice.”

I am so guilty of taking time for granted. Maybe that is why I feel so rushed now. I’m trying to make up for lost time. It’s hard not to be disappointed at what might have been possible if I only applied myself better. But I think someone once said that if you don’t learn from history your doomed to repeat it. So I’m doing my best to work hard towards a productive and creative future and the ability to do something that makes a difference and hopefully can result in a new career direction that might help get us through our senior years. Don’t worry though, as my wife says, I’m a teenager who refuses to grow up. So hopefully my youthful enthusiasm will come through despite the years on the calendar.

Quote of the Day – responding

“It’s never to late to learn to temper your responses and resist those triggers that make you respond to petty people or situations, because life is too short as it is. So think about all that extra time and energy you will have for something more positive and fun.” 

Mike Hartley

Wish I could remember this more often.
