    Motivational Quote/Word of the Day- 20 May 2008 


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking
    new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

    — Marcel Proust: Was a French novelist and essayist

    *******You don’t necessarily have to change the scenery in order to bring about change.  Change your way of thinking and open your eyes.  Fewer things than you think are set in stone.  As the times change, so do people and situations.  Whether you are open to change and discovering new possibilities is entirely up to you.  I just don’t believe in the quote, “All things stay the same.”  Ultimately, you are responsible for the outcome of your life.  It’s your choice to create change where change is due.  The best place to start, is with you.*******

    WORD OF THE DAY

    BRIO

    (noun)
    [BREE-oe]

    1. the quality of being alive and vigorous: “He speaks with such brio and insight that I could listen to him for hours.”


    Origin:
    Approximately 1750; from Italian, ‘brio’; from Spanish, ‘brio’ or Provencal, ‘briu,’ both of Celtic origin.

    *******There’s no other way to live life.  I don’t have time to sit around being depressed about my “have-nots”.  I DO have time to be alive and vibrant and to express my vitality as vivaciously as possible.  I have been told I’m not down-to-earth because I’m a die-hard Mrs. Brightside.  Truthfully, it hurt my feelings because I’ve been through so much that it would be understandable if I conducted my life as a hermit.  It’s just my choice not to.  I want to LIVE!  Exhibiting that frame of mind with BRIO is what keeps me going.*******

    She’s Not Wearing Any Pants!!! 


    On my way home from the store this morning, I decided to walk my boys to school to get a little exercise in.  I didn’t think I had enough time to run upstairs to put on my jogging pants, so I had to walk them to school in my shorts.  I’ve lost quite a bit of weight and I noticed they kept creeping up and making it look like I wasn’t wearing anything but a long shirt.  I was embarrassed, but it was too late to turn back, so I kept pulling my shorts down along the way.  I was thankful that it was early enough that there were hardly any parents there (the moms tend to gossip a bit), so I started speed walking after I kissed the boys goodbye.  I crossed the front of the school and was just about to pull my shorts down again when I felt eyes on me from the right.  There, I saw my worst nightmare…a group of giggling and whispering 11-year-old boys.  I thought to myself, “Son of a so and so…why me?”  I immediately pulled my shorts down and walked faster.  I then heard, “Look…she IS wearing pants!”  I was mortified!!!  Red-faced, I smiled, waved and walked fast enough to win a speedwalking race while wishing I was the Invisible Woman for just 1 minute.  Please God…just give me 1 minute.  I don’t ask for much.
