Death...

Monday, November 05, 2012

You donít get to choose how you are going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you are going to live. Now. Joan Baez

This quote spoke to me today, as we lost a wonderful young mother this week-end... she went to sleep and didn't wake up, a mere 31 years old, graduated with my son... This reminded me that there tomorrow isn't promised... so we have to live today! As a Christian, I have the blessed assurance of where my eternity will be spent, which adds comfort to my days!
Have a blessed day.

    That is so sad that someone that young lost her life. You are right though, as Christians we know we don't have to fear death. If I were to die today, I know where I will be!!!!

Live each day as if it were your last. emoticon

  So sad to lose one so young. Yes life is precious and only given to us to use each day. Sometimes I'm challenged that I have not used my day well and what would God say to me about that. I agree that we must live life to the fullest but I think we also need to live it with full meaning each day as well. Sorry for your lose and I hope that God will send you comfort.

Anger

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Anyone can become angry-that is easy, but to be angry with right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way-this is not easy.-Aristotle

This quote speaks to me, as I have been guilty of being angry in the wrong ways, to the wrong degree, at the wrong person, on more than once occasion!

Have a great day!

    I think anger is good in the right amount at the right time as long as you know how to release it and more on in a positive way.
thanks for posting.
have a terrific Sunday.

Anthony Robbins...

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.
Anthony Robbins

Love this one!!! Have a blessed day!
