Quote: Soaring High

Soaring High

“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”

~ William Blake

I took these pictures while on vacationing in Oregon this past January. We took a day trip to drive up the Pacific Coast Highway, visit the Tillamook Dairy factory, and stop by Cannon Beach and the famous “Goonies rock”. This day was special because it was one of the few days we got to explore Oregon — we spent the next two days of our trip snowed in!

Better than Unicorns

Excellence is a habit – 5 tips to be a better you.

I have this quote from Aristotle on my desktop at work to remind me that it takes practice and consistency to get better and achieve excellence. Getting better to me is making incremental improvements, either in health, talents, or habits. Small acts done consistently over time become big habits.

Do you wait for opportunities to come your way, or do you make the most of every situation? I prefer to make the most out of everything, which is why my blog is subtitled “Finding Inspiration in Every Day Life”.

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

Chaos: What a Tangled Web We Weave…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos

The other day while I was walking to the mailbox, I saw a large spider bobbing and weaving up and down from our tree making it’s web for the night. I made a rather large detour around the tree to the mailbox and then went and grabbed my camera to take a few shots.

I love the chaos of the silk seen here as the spider makes its web!

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!
