Today Is Your Day!

I spotted this saying painted in an elementary school library and thought, What a great way to encourage our children. It’s amazing how many nuggets of wisdom can be found in those Dr. Seuss books we all loved as kids.

This quote is from Oh, The Places You’ll Go.

I hope you all have an amazing, inspiring day! What mountains are you going to climb today?

Cheers!

Not Afraid to Fail

For some people the phrase “failure is not an option” are words to live by. I tend to look at things a little differently. I had a boss a long time ago who used to tell me, “No guts, no glory” when I was a little hesitant to push a button on an upgrade. Those words helped me gain confidence and get over my fear of failing, because even if I failed, I learned something from the experience.

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

No guts-no glorySo don’t be afraid to make a mistake. Be afraid of never trying!

Cheers!

Daily Prompt: Lofty

Via Daily Prompt and  Becca’s Sunday Trees Challenge

Forest Park, Portland, OR (February, 2016)
Like these lofty trees, we sometimes set high goals for ourselves. Awesome goals that inspire us to push ourselves, and maybe try something new. Stretch goals that allow us to demonstrate to others what we are truly capable of achieving. Personally, if I don’t keep moving forward and inching the bar a little higher I really won’t know what I can achieve, will I? Setting lofty goals is good for one’s psyche and personal growth.

“Dreams are Goals with Deadlines.” So continue to Dream a little Bigger. Aim a little Higher. And pursue those lofty goals that may seem out of reach.

“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”

~ Pamela Vaull Starr

It’s World Kindness Day

Today is my one year Blogiversary! It’s also World Kindness Day. So in the spirit of Kindness Day, I wanted to share a story I read from On the Road with Steve Hartman about Chris Rosati who was suffering from ALS. Have you heard of the butterfly effect? It’s this idea that “a single butterfly flapping its wings on one side of the globe can, in theory, start a hurricane on the other.” So Chris applied this theory to kindness and children, thinking it only takes a single act of kindness to start a chain reaction. So if you want a little more inspiration to start your own chain reaction or spread a little kindness in the world, go read the story of Chris Rosati and his butterfly effect. It will make your day.

Go, spread kindness. Smile. Be kind.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Gandhi

Get outside today and blaze a new trail, discover a new path, or set a new course. The world is yours to discover!

Sunday Inspiration: Nature

Version 2
Bleeding Heart flowers, Juneau, Alaska

The world would be a much better place if we all got outside and enjoyed nature a little more, smelled the flowers, breathed in the air, and just treated each other like kin or family, don’t you think? Enjoy your Sunday!

Cheers!
