"Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving; make every day a holiday and celebrate just living." -- Amanda Bradley
"Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so." -- Robert Green Ingersoll
" We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have." -- Fredrick Koeing
My kids have stated that I am the world's "nuttiest, silliest, whackiest, and most funnest" mom! (BTW, that is me doing the "Running-Man" You know that move, c'mon!) What can I say I am a big kid rolled into adult clothing with adult responsibilities! I admit there are days I don't know how to have some fun.. you know, you'd rather drown yourself in the endless laundry (that will be filled again tomorrow), the dishes (that only fill up at the end of the night), and the constant picking up after the children! But every now and then I am reminded to "Just Let it Go" (which is the title of a scrapbook page BTW!). Let go of the daily needs of the house and have some fun! And that is exactly what I did today! My day was filled with kids, along with the 5 I had today, the ladies came over with their bunch so we had a total of 10 kids running around! And to any one in the right frame of mind would have thought "How insane is that household?!" But not me! I loved it, with the "The more the merrier attitude!"
Todays Power Points Are:
- You will only succeed wth something that consumes you.
- You will only be remebered only for your obsession in life.
- You will almost always succeed with anytiing that has the ability to demand your total focus and attention.
Whenever I read these power points I always repeat them. And I try to think how it pertains to me. I guess you could say I meditate upon the thought. I think of my photography, and boy does that hobby/passion/future career consume me! Whenever I take photos, I run to upload them, and I DO NOT LIKE PEOPLE hovering over me to see them as they upload! (I don't know why!) I like to see it with my fresh eyes, myself, and not with anyone's 2 cent.. LOL! It's true, ask my DH! He does not hover me as they upload. It's like, watching the photographs appear in a darkroom, you like to see ho they look on the screen! And then I just get in this mode. Girl, you cannot bother me in this mode. I cannot hear you or see you. The EDIT MODE.. the one where I comb through 300 photos, deleting some, highlighting the ones I love and so forth. Then I take em to photoshop. And I just need a big DO NOT DISTURB sign. Because I am on it. I literally take each photo, critique them, edit each one (for each one is unique!) and just love on em. (Now if I had the same care for flowers I bet they'd stay alive!) So yes photography consumes me, sometimes to the point of complete obsession! And that is what I thought when I read those points today! Now you are dismissed! Take care!
