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! 🙂

It’s never too late to find love

An excerpt from an advice column in my local newspaper:

Dear XX: I, too, am 82 years old and have been single for 23 years. A little over a year ago, I became reacquainted with a wonderful gentleman I’d met at a church 40 years ago. We will be getting married this fall. Do not despair. There is always hope. — In Love in SoCal

When it comes to love, there is always hope. Stay open, always, and never give up the search.

Step beyond the threshold into something more

Thought for the day, courtesy of Franz Kafka:

From a certain point onward, there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached.

In life, in love, in learning, seek this point. Reach it. Then exceed it.

Put some spark in your parenting!

Excellent parenting advice from children’s author Roald Dahl, as printed at the end of his book Danny the Champion of the World:

to children who have read this book

When you grow up
and have children of your own,
do please remember something important.

A stodgy parent is no fun at all!

What a child wants
is a parent who is

Live your dream and share your passion

I ran across this bit of inspiration today.  It’s called the “Holstee Manifesto,” and it was created by Holstee, an American company-with-a-conscience that manufactures clothing, wallets, greeting cards and wall art from recycled materials.  🙂

This is your life.  Do what you want and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it.  If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of you life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over-analyzing; life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Open your heart, mind and arms to new things and people; we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once; seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating.
Life is short.  Live your dream and share your passion.
