3 Days/ 3 Quotes/ Day #2

One of the blogs that I follow, SonofABeach69, has been participating in a 3 Days/ 3 Quote Challenge and has left an open invitation for others to play along.  I love quotes.  Any kind will do.  Funny, inspirational, dry or sarcastic humour, whenever works for your soul or mood on any given day.

The rules of this challenge are simple:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days
  • Nominate 3 bloggers each day.

I’m not going to follow these rules.  I will post for 3 days, but like SonOfABeach, I will leave it open to anyone who wants to play along.

Here goes Day 2

Today I choose a quote from Michael J Fox.  If you have ever read any of his books, or even just some quotes from him, he is very inspirational.  I highly recommend Lucky Man.  It still remains one of my favourite books and made me love him even more.

My first quote will come from my favourite all time song Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. The first time I heard this song was in the movie Cruel Intentions.  I have loved the song and the movie ever since.

I think this song and its lyrics speak so accurately about life and honestly, if I could have, I would have quoted the entire song.  But here is what I have chosen.

the-verve-a-million-different-people-from-one-day-to-the-next

I think that is quote describes a lot of people, especially parents.  We are so many different people through a day.  We wear many different hats and take on many different roles.  A million people from one day to the next.

If you decide to play along, tag me, I would love to read what you have chosen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s Never Find A Cure

It is amazing what laughter can do for a person.  How it can infect one’s soul with energy and awaken us.  How is can change a bad day. Or bad news.  How it can offer relief, even if only temporary.

What makes you laugh?  Is it a funny joke or a comedian?   A witty one liner?  Maybe something silly or goofy you spouse or kids did.  Perhaps a pet that has done something ridiculous? Sometimes it’s someone else’s laugh.   You know the one.  It gets you laughing so hard you can’t even remember what you where laughing about in the first place.  Where your belly aches and your eyes become a stream.

Have you laughed today? What was it that made you laugh? Was it just a chuckle or may a full out roar of laughter? How did it make you feel?  Did it change your day in anyway, even if momentarily?

Infect your soul today with laughter and then spread it on!  Change a moment of your time and feed your soul some happiness.  Let’s never find a cure!

Human is the only label we need.

8f05e091b6df57d13b25666a380ee72fWhy do we have to define everything?  Why must the world put so many labels on people, relationships,  wealth, personalities, religion, groups etc.  Why can’t it just be?

People seem to be so quick to pass judgement or designate what they don’t know, or how something seems to be.

Take moms for example.  If we don’t raise our child a certain way, or discipline them a certain way, or pack the right food in their lunch bags, we are labelled a bad mom.

Or sexuality.  Why does any label need to be put on sexuality. We are just people that are attracted to and love other people regardless of what is between our legs.  It shouldn’t be defined.  What turns one person on, may not do the same for another, but it isn’t wrong and shouldn’t have to be defined.  It just is.

At the end of the day we are all just people, trying to do the best we can to get through a 24 hour period.

We all struggle with one thing or another and we all excel at one thing or another.  We need to stop living in a protective sleeve, afraid of what we don’t know or understand.  We need to stop trying to categorize everything and if you really need to place a label on anything label it Human because at the end of the day that is what we are.  We are all just human.

No Need to Disturb, I’m An Introvert

I love being alone.   There is something so peaceful and calming about being alone in a quiet space.  I thrive on “me” time.   That’s not to say that I don’t like the company of others, I do, I just like to chose the time, date, people etc.

I hate that awkward moment when you know that you are going to have to make small talk with someone that you really don’t know or someone that you haven’t seen in a long time.   Maybe someone you went to school with or used to work with.   That’s what Facebook is for people!!!  This way I can be noisy about your life without actually having to make the dreaded small talk!

Or when you have to go to a social gathering with a ton of new people.   Just the thought makes my stomach churn.129829212-27h_EndofYourComfortZone_large  I like to be that girl sitting alone at the table, minding my own.  No need to disturb me!  If I could sneak in my e-reader I would.

But as  I get older, I am trying to push myself outside of my comfort zone.  One of my favorite quotes is about being outside of that zone.

So that is what I try to do.   Life is short and we only get to live it once.
