NEW YEAR'S DAY

HAPPY NEW YEAR!




“I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of my human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my Fool.”
Theodore Isaac Rubin (born 1923);psychiatrist, author
(I love this).

A goofy happy song - Don't forget to look for the Beauty of the World this new year (I think I got this from Madsnapper/Sandra too).




Click on the word Elion. Then drag your mouse over the picture, but only after you have looked at it all.  
This is what we have to do to change our outlook on life!

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

“I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.” 
Arthur Rubinstein
I love y'all!

  6. What an insightful quote ... I'd never heard it before, but as someone who's so hard on herself, especially her inner fool, it speaks volumes to me.

    I love that link to Elion. Profound.

    Wishing you and yours a blessed 2013!

  63. I've been on this blog for about twenty minutes now trying to get caught up and entertain myself with clicking. I just went upstairs to wake my daughter singing "Shake your booty boys and girls... for the beauty in the world."

    If she didn't think I was a big old pain in that booty before, she does now.

    I love that quote at the beginning SO MUCH.

    Hope your 2013 will be as fabulous and chatty as you are! Who knows? Maybe this is the year that I'll travel to Atlanta for a little coffee tawk with you.
