LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE ONE HAPPY...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLY7yI1xV-M

"You have to ask yourself, 'does this item or thought or response move me closer to my vision for my best life?'  If it does,  great.  If it doesn't,  what is it doing in your life?"
                                                           -----Peter Walsh-----


"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.  that myth is more potent than history.  That dreams are more powerful than facts.  That hope always triumphs over experience.  That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death."
                                                    -----Robert Fulghum-----


SAFETY IN NUMBERS

"Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it.  That Factor is Attitude."
                                                    -----William James-----

When we talk about living our life....it is all in how we view what is happening.  We can make mountains our of molehills or we can accept what is happening and deal with it.  It is easier to go with the flow than fight the inevitable.

A NEW BEGINNING -- -- AGAIN

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkb6IftyNRc

"Out with everything you don't need --  the junk, clutter, hang-ups and hurts -- and in with the fresh, fantastic, unencumbered life you've always wanted."
                                                                     -----OPRAH-----


How many times, in a lifetime, do we need to start over?  That, is a question, I ask myself, everyday.
We need to start over, as often as necessary to achieve the life that we want to live.


"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.  When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need."
                                                                  -----TAO TE CHING-----


Life changes on a daily basis....what we have, is not always what we want.  As we change and mature, our wants and needs change with us.  We are, who we are meant to be, not what others see within us.



This little story, is for all my readers that enjoy stories, we all get, what we need.

This next song is a reminder to myself, that all things that start out good but  end up as we don't want them to be, are not bad.  They are life's lessons learned and to be cherished for that very reason.

ST PATRICKS DAY

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqN7kCfOOpw 



"MAY YOU HAVE THE HINDSIGHT TO KNOW WHERE YOU'VE BEEN, THE FORESIGHT TO KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING, AND THE INSIGHT TO KNOW WHEN YOU'RE GOING TO FAR."


                                                            -----IRISH BLESSING-----




I have never been to Ireland, but I can claim a little of the green.  My grandparents on my fathers side were from Ireland.  I do identify with my Irish Heritage, but I am a Canadian through and through.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2012

Thursday March 8th is INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!


"Women are leaders everywhere you look--from the CEO of a Fortune 500 company to the housewife who raises her children and heads her household.  Our Country was built by strong women and we will continue to break down walls and defy stereotypes."
                                                          -----Nancy Pelosi-----
My love of quotes and of music is always evident on my blog.  I can think of no better way to celebrate INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY, than by using quotes and music!

LOOKING FORWARD

"IT IS BETTER TO LOOK AHEAD AND PREPARE THAN TO LOOK BACK AND REGRET."
                                                     -----Jackie Joyner-Kersee-----


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfDq8eCLoGE&feature=related

There is always promise in each new day.  If we wake, to face it, the day will bring us what we are seeking.  We  need to be prepared for what each day brings to us.  When we  look at each and every moment, we can stand back, and say we have done our best with this new day.

"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.  The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come."
                                                     -----Joseph Campbell-----

TRIBUTE TO DAVEY JONES

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okQe_lmM8OI&feature=related

Saying goodbye to Davey Jones is saying a final farewell to the sixties.  The lead singer of the singing group, the Monkees, a group created for a television show!


It is surprising, just how many of the entertainers of the sixies have now passed on...It is an era unto itself.   The sixties definitely had a sound of its own.  It is always interesting when music from the past makes its way into the music of the present.


RIP Davey Jones!

MARCH: A NEW MONTH

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUzafEhjMYs

"The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings.
-----Joyce Kilmer, Spring-----


I always like to think of a new month, as a new beginning.  We can begin any time that we want, but starting a new month, seems to put a fresh face on things.  Either way, it is something to look forward to.  The future is always beckoning.
