Random Thoughts. The Simple Things In Life


elmersglue_pasteFor some reason when I woke up this morning, one of my first thoughts was being a little girl in elementary school at Thanksgiving time. The smell of school paste felt real (I loved that smell). I could remember myself excited to cut out colorful shapes on  construction paper,  coloring in the templates provided by the teacher. It was with great joy to complete a paper turkey or making autumn leaves to take home – my creation. It really is the simple things in life that can make you smile at any given moment.

Thought of The Day. Perspective on Petty People.



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.
