I was in a nice calm “zen state” but I can hear my husband screaming at the telemarketers that always seem to call around this time each evening. We are on that do not call list but a few always seem to slip through. So, I turn up my headset (yes, Jackson Browne as usual) and my usual blogging attire: pajama pants, loose shirt, no bra, warm sweater, and fuzzy socks. Let the blogging begin…
We went down to Laguna Beach in Southern California for 5 days last week. It was really awesome. The weather was nice, the sun on my face was bliss, the sound of the surf soothed my soul and the soreness in my legs from walking was a welcome pain.
I realized that I am a “motivational” junkie as I perused around all the local shops. I found it so odd as I dumped my stash of purchases on the bed of my hotel room that a fellow blogger I follow was writing about how she loves motivational l quotes. Life is strange how there are so many people living in this world that are so different but yet so alike. Life is interesting that way. When you take the time to get to know people it’s amazing how much we all have it common. Everyone is just trying to find his or her own slice of happiness.
All right, so here are some of the “quotes” I saw and bought. Many were just magnets or stones. I think many of them would make interesting subjects to blog about, especially number one. I was just drawn to them. I also took sand, rocks, shells and small pieces of driftwood from the beach. I’ll probably put them in some interesting jar from Pier One Imports near my desk.
1) What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
2) Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.
3) Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
4) Anyplace with a beach is heaven to me
7) Laugh out Loud!
8) All Glory comes from daring to begin
9) The journey is everything
10) The best is yet to be
I noticed that I’ve been blogging for almost one year, wow that’s kind of amazing. I’ve got to get busy; I’d like to have at least fifty posts by my Anniversary Date of February 28th.
Well don’t want to make this too long. Hope everyone has a nice week and to my family and friends back East I hope that snow stops, like yesterday!!!
