Thought of the day, courtesy of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland:
Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Space travel, air travel, the Internet –even you running that 5-kilometre course without stopping once.
Some of the biggest breakthroughs in our modern age were once thought impossible.
Believe in the impossible. Give those “crazy” ideas wings to fly.

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! 🙂

A great quote from Vickie M. Worsham:
Remember what is most important:
It’s not having everything go right;
it’s facing whatever goes wrong.
It’s not being without fear;
it’s having the determination to go on in spite of it.
It’s not where you stand,
but the direction you’re going in.
Remember to live this one day and not add tomorrow’s troubles to today’s load.
Remember that every day ends and brings a new tomorrow full of exciting new things.
Love what you do,
do the best you can,
and always remember how much you are loved.

Thought of the moment, courtesy of American daredevil Evel Knievel:
I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could.
I good motto for any life, I’d say.

I found this fabulous and uplifting “manifesto for life” on the back cover of this month’s alive magazine:
Celebrate life. Learn lots.
Love what you do.
And always be curious for more.
Be the adventurer of your own dreams.
Aim high. Higher.
Choose to be healthy and happy inside and out.
Be your best. Inspire others. It’s contagious.
Discover your purpose then make it happen.
Go beyond your wildest dreams.
Do stuff that matters. Do it right.
Stop at nothing to create, evolve. Be smarter. Nourish and heal.
Have an open mind. Listen. Really listen.
Defeat the naysayers. Dare yourself daily.
Defy the ordinary.
Respect everyone and everything.
Take care. Of yourself, each other, the planet.
Laugh with abandon.
Love whole-heartedly and spread joy.
And above all
Live your life in BOLD.

I can either spend my time worrying about what might happen in the future, or I can choose to enjoy the gifts that are in my life right now, in this very moment.
The choice is mine — and yours. Every day.

An encouraging quote from Canadian journalist Jan Wong:
In Chinese, the word for crisis is wei ji, composed of the character wei, which means danger, and ji, which means opportunity.
Danger and opportunity: joined hand-in-hand, one beside the other, in every crisis you face.
The next time you find yourself in a tough spot, remember that the potential for growth lies somewhere within the mess before you. Big or small, the opening is there. Look for it. Then grasp it tight and follow it home.
