“Inactivity is death.”
Benito Mussolini

Actually, the guy has a point. I would have to agree with it! I am sure he is thinking along the lines of war games, where I am referring to everyday life! He was figuring if his guys just stood around and did not plan their next attack, they would be dead! I am thinking more along the lines of not being motivated to do much in life, so in part…I believe, you are kind of dead. I also am thinking along health issues. If you need to exercise and stay fit to live, or else you may have more health risks, I agree…inactivity could lead to death. Another way I look at this quote is in the area of our brain. If we do not keep it stimulated and fed, it will eventually begin to die off. So, I guess in a weird way…Mussolini makes sense! You are kind of dead to things physically, mentally, and spiritually if you do not make the effort in life. So, OK Mussolini…in a weird way, I agree with you!

Have a Wonderful Weekend!……….*

I am still on the opportunity kick. I agree 100% with the above statement. I feel that it is fine to have your dreams and aspirations, but at the same time you need to have both of your feet placed solidly on the ground. You need to be tuned in to reality. You need to be aware of your surroundings and those people who are included in them. You may need someone to give you a reality check! Do not ever lose sight of your dreams, but place your decisions and choices on the priorities that are facing you at that particular point in your life. Dream….Be Real….Be True To Yourself!

When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us. -Alexander Graham Bell

The Strength To Go On………*

I just would like to touch on this subject about surviving! We all have got to realize we need to do this, or we would not be where we are today. Right? I mean ,if one morning we got up and noticed the world looked a little better than usual, doesn’t that give us the motivation to get up and make the very best of our day? It does for me. I sometimes do not even know where I get my strength, but I manage to amaze myself on a daily basis! Sometimes I get up sooo dizzy and tired, I just want to go back to sleep….but, I can’t…I have responsibilities. If I do not start the “tour” of my stuff…the rest of the “tour” members will be lost! So, I guess knowing that someone else is depending on me to do my end of the bargain, so they can do theirs, is my motivation and strength. My beliefs help enormously, also! Thanks for listening to my thoughts! You have any you want to share?

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN’T LOOKING…….

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN’T LOOKING

A message every adult should read because children
are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you hang my
first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately
wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you feed a
stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind
to animals.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you make my
favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little
things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I heard you say a
prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always
talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you make a
meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
learned that we all have to help take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you take care
of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw how you
handled your responsibilities, even when you didn’t
feel good, and I learned that I would have to be
responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw tears come
from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things
hurt, but it’s all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw that you
cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I learned most of
life’s lessons that I need to know to be a good and
productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I looked at you and
wanted to say,’Thanks for all the things I saw when
you thought I wasn’t looking.’

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend)
influences the life of a child.

How will you touch the life of someone today? Just by
sending this to someone else, you will probably make
them at least think about their influence on others.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.

Speak kindly.
Leave the rest to God.

Thanks to Pam. This was nice to think about.
