It’s been awhile since I admitted it, but I’m a box freak. An addict. I drool when I see a box I like. There CANNOT be too many in my life. EVER. Any excuse will do. I can always find a ‘reason’ for another, or fun way to use one…
I HAVE made a promise to myself to simply ‘window shop’ now, rather than buying all the wonderful boxes I see, so we can still walk through the house without falling or getting buried.
“I thought boxes were the best toy. When my parents got a new car, I ran to my mother and said, ‘Did it come in a box?’ ~ Colin Angle
“Reorganization to me is shuffling boxes, moving boxes around. Transformation means that you’re really fundamentally changing the way the organization thinks, the way it responds, the way it leads. It’s a lot more than just playing with boxes.” ~ Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.
“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I’ve got a few missing.” ~ John Mayer
This was posted on LinkedIn this morning by Elena (Livia) D. I wanted to share it with you.
“It’s good for everyone to have a place to run. Because there’s a time when we really have to run somewhere.” ~ Dostoyevsky
After a pretty long, awful day yesterday, my husband and I are doing a bit of resting today.
I’ve been up in my art room playing, and am about to go back up in a minute. I hope to be able to share what I’ve been working on with you.
“For those who have experienced the joy of being alone with nature there is really little need for me to say much more; for those who have not, no words of mine can ever describe the powerful, almost mystical knowledge of beauty and eternity that come, suddenly, and all unexpected.” ~ Jane Goodall
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” ~ George Eliot
“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.” ~ William Cullen Bryant
“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower” ~ Albert Camus
“Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.” ~ Faith Baldwin
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
I look at this quote as encouragement to move outside your comfort zone. If you hope for something, you then try to do what you can to make it happen. Any time you reach out, you learn, gathering more experiences, becoming a richer person. Being rich in experiences with a lust for learning something new keeps your brain agile, looking at things in a different way. Being more and more active in mind and body allows you to appreciate all you have, the people you’re lucky enough to know, and the satisfaction in the DOING.
And it all starts with hope…
