"Take up one idea. Make that idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.

This is the way to success, that is the way great spiritual giants are produced." - Swami Vivekananda

I used up all my Pandora hours for the month! Which means, if I wasn't such a cheapskate and would pay 99 cents I could still listen. But instead I'm having to find a new radio website to listen to. Any advice? I'm using Jango right now.. but not thrilled with it! I need to find something because I listen to Pandora ALL day at work!

Quote(s) of the Day.

"If we are strong, our strength will speak for themselves. If we are weak, words will be of no help." - John F. Kennedy

"We need less posturing and more genuine charisma. Charisma was originally a religious term, meaning "of the spirit" or "inspired". It's about letting God's light shine through us. It's about a sparkle in people that money can't buy. It's an invisible energy with visible effects. To let go, to just love, is to not fade into the wallpaper. Quite the contrary, it's when we truly become bright. We're letting our own light shine." - Marianne Williamson

"The size of you success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way." - Robert Kiyosaki

"Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe." - Gail Devers

Quote(s) of the Day.

"Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, the I can acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning." - Mahatma Gandhi

"If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be." - John Heywood

"Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some." - Robert Fulghum

"There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, I think the way I think, I feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me.. or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision. When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you." - Stacey Charter

Quote(s) of the Day.

"The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on." - Chuck Palahniuk

"Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you." - Oscar Wilde

"Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it." - Bill Cosby

Lately when I think about all the responsibility you have and how you have stepped up (and believe me, I know it's not easy!) I feel blessed to have a daughter like you."

Quote(s) of the Day.

Kenlyee's first day of daycare is today. On the drive there, I was feeling a little emotional and praying that someone from her family would call and say, "Hey, plans have changed and I can keep her!", but as soon as I got her in there I instantly felt relieved. Stephanie, the daycare provider, is exceptionally nice and she has been texting me ever since I dropped her off to tell me what she is doing. I feel really good about this place and it's not very far from where I work. So prayers for me are needed, but Kenlyee is doing just fine! I love that little angel.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste your time living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs

"Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever." - Isak Dinesen

"Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quote(s) of the Day.

"The soul can split the sky in two and let the face of God shine through." -- Edna St. Vincent Millay

All books are alike in that they are truer than if they had happened, and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer." -- Ernest Hemingway

Twenty years from now you will look back more regretfully upon the things you didn't do than those you did. So set free the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor. Dream. Explore. Discover." -- Mark Twain

"I do not know the secret of success. However, I do know the secret of failure, and that is to please everybody." -- Bill Cosby

Quote(s) of the Day.

Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
-- Denis Waitley

Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.
-- Oscar Wilde

Being vulnerable doesn't have to be threatening. Just have the courage to be sincere, open and honest. This opens the door to deeper communication all around. It creates self-empowerment and the kind of connections with others we all want in life. Speaking from the heart frees us from the secrets that burden us. These secrets are what make us sick or fearful. Speaking truth helps you get clarity on your real heart directives.
-- Sara Paddiso

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.
-- Lewis B. Smedes

"When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of amate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, fromsomewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature." -- Sigmund Freud

"They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure." -- Ernest Hemingway

"All the miseries of mankind come from one thing, not knowing how to remain alone." -- Blaise Pascal

Quote(s) of the Day.

"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence." -- Daniel Hudson Burnham

"Life is not a having and a getting, but a being and a becoming." -- Matthew Arnold

"It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize." -- Stephen Covey

"Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person having neither to weigh thoughts or measure words, but pouring all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful friendly hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and, with a breath of comfort, blow the rest away." -- Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
