My new favorite (and it may be on my sig line, I don't remember!) is from the movie "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel""

"Everything will be alright in the end; if it is not alright, it is not yet the end!"

(Yep, fancy that, it is my sig line!)

I just saw this quote on another Sparkpage. It made me think of how much our dogs contribute to making days great!

Today is Are You Somebody Day! This day celebrates all of us who are good but not yet Somebody. Celebrate you as you. Make a list of what you do, what you have done, and what you want to do. Build your self-esteem!

Today's Inspirational Quote:

"Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little course, and you may get your
coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson


This came to my INBOX today, and I had to share.

I found this on one of the general message boards......thought y'all might like it.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

In response to mom's advice........try 'umph' and youwill achieve triumph.

"Anything is possible if you try. Don't be afraid to try; go out there, fall on your face a few times and get back up."
Romeo made this statement when he was voted off Dancing with the Stars. He was afraid to dance, but conquered his fears and left the show with this fabulous advice. Adding my own thoughts........we only fail when we fail to try.
I was really impressed with his sharing that he didn't dance at his prom and turned down movie roles because they involved dancing.

“When we enter into a relationship with a dog or any other being we are seeking a connection or, perhaps more accurately, what we feel as a result of this connection: comfort, love, acceptance, peace, joy. What we are seeking and striving for is a quality of connection that is – hopefully- a mutually pleasurable state, a dance of two spirits moving in agreement.”

Suzanne Clothier, Bones Would Rain from the Sky
