Blogtober Day 15: Favorite Quote and Why!


via

I love words and even more when they are strung together to make beautiful statements. I admire numerous quotes and find tremendous inspiration from them. I ultimately believe the above quote is my favorite because it is beyond relevant to my aspirations and goals, whether achieved already or those that are in my deck of cards to play out in the future.

It can be easy to lose sight of a goal and jump to an "I Can't" attitude. But if you set your mind to it, and if you want something bad enough, the first step in getting there is to believe you can. Growing up I was told the "c" word, was not to be part of my vocabulary. A frustrating lesson at times, but one that I refer to constantly. For that, I love to remind myself often, "She believed she could so she did."

Until me meet again,

  1. I love your reason behind why you love this quote - you are so right the 'c' word should be banned. As soon as you say you can't do something you start to really believe that you can't. If we all started to say we can do something, I wonder what we would achieve? :)

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
