Observed on the street: A little G.O.O.D. advice

I came across this wonderful quote outside the Alternative Grounds Coffee and Tea House in Burns Lake, British Columbia:



Never give up, because F.A.I.L. means “First Attempt in Learning.”
END is not the end; in fact, E.N.D. means “Effort Never Dies.”
If you get NO as an answer, just remember, N.O. means “Next Opportunity.”
Be positive! 🙂

The heart of being a parent

A good quote about parenthood from Hank Lentfer in his memoir Faith of Cranes:

Parenthood is like having your heart race around outside your body . . . . Parenting, from the get-go, is one long lesson in letting go of what was never yours.

A twisting take on one of life’s gifts

Thought of the moment, courtesy of American author and radio personality Garrison Keillor and his take on life:

Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted, but getting what you have, which, once you have it, you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known.

In other words, sometimes life’s twists and turns mysteriously take you to the exact place you’ve always wanted to be — a place you never could have described until you got there. 😉
