Fibro fog, pain, writing sandwiched in between. Quotes. Sermon notes. Encouragement.
|Nope. No trash here. Just needed a blog entry title that was new and different.
So, let's see...How about a few quotes. From my notes. From today? No way. Yesterday. Hey, hey. Okay...
I'll stop. With the rhymes anyway. Oops.
"Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time." - Edward L. Bernays
Hmmm. Perhaps that's why people start writing, at least writing with the intention to share and sell it. We humans want to have meaningful work that we enjoy.

“Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.” -- Gail Sheehy from Passages
Oh, think about that one. "Growth demands a temporary surrender of security." Wow. No wonder people just moan about life rather than doing something about it. Growing and changing means that we have to step out of that comfort zone that every motivational speaker mentions when they try to get us, well...motivated. While we ponder that one, maybe we need Gloria Estefan's song, "Get On Your Feet" playing in the background. Don't know that one? "Get on your feet. Get up and make it happen. Get on your feet.
Stand up and take some action."
“Creativity, when not used, turns to depression.” -- Joey Reiman -- from Thinking For A Living

Here's something different. This link will take you to a YouTube video about health care problems.
