Proverbs often contradict one another, as any reader soon discovers. The sagacity that advises us to look before we leap promptly warns us that if we hesitate we are lost; that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but out of sight, out of mind.

for you

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Regardless of how high we fly, all of us must sooner or later handle the tough times that life inevitably tosses our way. But that's not all bad. Contrary to popular belief, character is not built when tough times occur; it is revealed.

So even at those times when your most precious of dreams have been blown apart or smashed to smithereens, you can immediately pick up your spirits by picking up the pieces right then and there. Not whenever you feel like it or get around to it, but right that very moment. By picking up the pieces and moving forward, learning from your past experiences and mistakes, you can quickly build on these life lessons and forge the life you have longed to live.

Best of all, you will put the all the pieces together and ultimately uncover your unique place in the sun.

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

well, we made it back from the big V. had a fantabulous time. really, we did. and we actually did pretty well. had a few big wins. and relaxed. heading back in Nov for a girls' only trip and i cannot wait.

trying to get back in the swing of things. have a ton of laundry to catch up on. and need to clean out my fridge. it'll have to wait. le sigh.

not a whole lot going on, tbh. heading to the Blanco Lavender Festival on Friday. should be fun; hot but fun. we'll see.

gearing up for my little brother's annual summer visit. haha. i can't wait.

so, yea. we're buying a house. i'm a nervous wreck over it. it's coming along. the brick is up. so that's cool. still fucking scared shitless. but a las, this is the next move in life, no? at least that's what i keep telling myself.

hope all you silent peeps are doing well. i know you're there. you just don't comment. but i can see you....hehe...little stars from around the globe (map). lol! sorry i don't give you much to read these days. my life seems to have slowed to musings and reflections instead of the more personal shit that TTC brought on. so, sorry if you're bored or if i disappoint.


wanna laugh?

we take off for Vegas tomorrow but i wanted to leave you with this:

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
