" Whether you and I and a few others will renew the world some day remains to be seen. But within ourselves we must renew it each day." - Herman Hesse
I have been thinking about what I want to do with my Blog now that my trip to Alaska is over - which by the way makes me sad. I loved Alaska and talking about it. I find that life does go on, but Alaska will stay in my heart forever.
In keeping with the original theme or thought I wanted for my blog was to talk some about my own journey, but mostly it was to learn how to keep a positive spirit - no matter what - in a sometimes negative world. Which at times can be hard. I think it takes work and effort daily. We must renew our self daily. It's okay to get down, it's not okay to stay down - at least for me.
Now another thing I'm thinking about is the movie Julie and Julia. Julie was floundering around which sometimes (lol) I can relate to. I wish I had thought of that myself. To cook through Julia Child's cookbook - The Art of French Cooking - but alas, don't know if I am much of a chef. . .
So what can I do for awhile? What could I write about that would hold our interest and be positive at the same time?
I want to write about inspiring people. Famous or not so famous women and men. I've been giving it thought about how to do that. Should I do it by birthdays? Pick someone out of the blue?
I've been working on this already and it is going to take some work on my part - which is good for me - as it will keep my mind busy in this period of 'flux' I'm going through.
So I hope you'll enjoy my efforts with some positive quotes, some people who I think are hero's, some pictures, and songs. If you have any suggestions let me know and I'll look them up and blog on them. I think I started yesterday with the strong women in my life who are facing cancer. They are not famous, but they are hero's non-the-less.
Now the You Tubes below - is of Mariah Carey's song - The 'Hero' Within You - if we all can remember there's a little bit of hero in all of us - that we don't have to be big hero's or a famous hero - just a little hero - sometimes just getting though the day is hero enough.
And this video talks about "Famous Failures" - People who didn't give up even when at first they failed. We can never, ever give up. Yoda - 'Do or do not, there is no try'. I love that quote.
And who to better to continue with then Winnie The Pooh - he's my grandson's hero or was - and if you look at him and his personality qualities - they're good ones with good values.
"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think". - Christopher Robin to Pooh
So who are you? Pooh, Eeyore, Rabbit, Tigger, or Piglet? They all have distinct personalities. Maybe you're a blend. I am.
