Ripe, juicy peaches

As I received a very rude email from someone all upset with me this morning because my posts were showing up on her Facebook wall and wondering how I could basically be so evil and do such a thing because I am not her friend (duh), let me remind you that y’all are following a page.

And if you don’t like my brilliant, hilarious, positive, and awesome posts (clearly), you can just unlike the page. You don’t have to send me hate mail. O_o

And if you want to be friends on Facebook (crazy, I know!), just send me a friend request.

Live long and may the force be with you, you’re a wizard, Harry.

The title refers to this.

Just because I can do it myself…

Hobbles up to front door of gym on crutches. Carrying gym bag.

Takes me a minute to wrestle the door open and get inside.

Walk up to receptionist 10 feet away, who greets me with, “I was going to open the door for you, but I didn’t want to offend you.”

I had no problem with that, but it does concern me when people are afraid to attempt an act of kindness out of fear of offense.

“Do not be afraid of doing good deeds. It is another name for happiness. I know well that good deeds lead to a ripening, a blossoming, which is pleasing, joyous and happy for a long time.” — Buddha


When obstacles arise, you change your direction…

Zig Ziglar said, “When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal, you do not change your decision to get there.”

And my rental car dashboard says, “Tank full. Eco mode on. Infinite improbability drive engaged. And, ‘Hi, I’m Eddie, your shipboard computer!'”

This can only mean…

Well, an infinite number of things…

But to narrow it down, I believe I’ll take a nice little drive north today. Maybe catch a nice sunset over the ocean. Maybe dine with a fine and intellectually stimulating young lady who finds me fascinating. Maybe…

Ok, let’s not get ahead of ourselves…

But right now I gotta get my sweat ON at the gym and this new car smell OFF my body.

'It's amazing what one can accomplish'

James Cook said, “Do just once what others say you can’t do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again.”

But Garfield the Cat said, “It’s amazing what one can accomplish when one doesn’t know what one can’t do.” (memorized from a poster I had on my wall growing up.)

What’s better than both?

People who inspire you and believe in your ability to achieve.

Killing dreams is all too easy. If someone truly has a passion for something, even if you think it’s silly or unattainable, don’t be THAT person who talks others out of their dreams because you gave up on yours.

It costs nothing to encourage people.

Because you never know.

The world was flat before it was round.
