Thought of The Day. Perspective on Petty People.

 

fe9fff484992bccc40ff3d9d4bcc74d8

Some people are always trying to reel others into nonsense because they may be bored, miserable, broke, lonely, insecure, threatened by another’s success or another person simply choosing to boldly live life on their own terms and on and on. Regardless of other’s expectations or desires we must all push forward and drown out the noise. That type of pettiness is a reflection of their own reality. With that in mind – here’s a  reminder for you and me!

Thought of The Day. Be Your Own Story.

This excerpt from Toni Morrison really resonated with me, it’s great food for thought. Live your life – set the tone and theme – change it when you feel like it. Don’t worry about other people’s expectations or opinions – we all have our own lives to live and shouldn’t waste time trying to conform what others think our journey should be about – because it may make them feel more comfortable.

Thought of The Day. The Road Not Taken.

One of my favorite books is “The Road Less Traveled” by M. Scott Peck.  I read it for the first time in 1983 when I really decided to take control of my life especially professionally and the second time in 1989. This is one of my favorite poems, so I’m sharing it with you. Live your life – make your own choices no matter how much flack you might receive, it’s best to be authentic than to live someone else’s vision of your life.

 

The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Thought Of The Day. Gratitude and Love

There’s always something to complain about – or be grateful about, to love or not tp love  –  it’s your choice every single day and moment of your life.

Thought of The Day. Life.

So true!

Quote of The Day. Opinions.

Opinion_Quote

This is true. People have been talking about me most of my life some good and some bad – but one is true ‘they’ keep talking and I keep doing. If we all did things worried about opinions of others – where would we be?  Where would I be? Those opinions are irrelevant at the end of the day – never one to follow the crowd or popular opinion I say – you have a brain,  instincts,  savvy, smarts – use them! Who cares what someone else thinks, often the negative chatter is rife with fear, jealousy, envy and resentment anyway. If you believe in something or have a dream or goal for the right reasons – go after it.

My father would always tell me as a little girl “It’s not what others think about you – it’s what you think and believe about yourself.” A great lesson for life and self-esteem. Do You!
