“Life is not meant to be easy, my child, but take courage – it can be delightful.” — George Bernard Shaw

“Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!” — Kalidasa
“Life’s too short to just use one color of green.” — Dee Greuning
When you think of “green” does one particular color come to mind? There are many different shades and gradations of green. Why limit ourselves to just one?
This applies to more than just color. We leave most of the world unexplored because we become comfortable with the familiar. Life is too short to get stuck in comfortable ruts. Have fun and shake things up. Use a different color of green, try a new vegetable, create a new recipe, read a new book, think a new thought, go in a different direction, embrace life in all it’s fullness and lighten up.
“Experience is not what happens to a man, it is what a man does with what happens to him.” ~ Aldous Huxley
