Don’t Quit



When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.


Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.


Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.


Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

A Week To Be Thankful

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, it definitely sets the mind to think about and reflect on the things that I am grateful for in my life. Consider today as the beginning of a week to be thankful for yourself too.



“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”


Melody Beattie



To show people that you are grateful, you have to make it a habit to tell people thank you. It is so meaningful to express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. When you truly appreciate those around you, they will feel it and see it through your actions and energy. You will soon find many others around you, because the energy of gratitude that you express will draw more people to you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it to share with others. When you practice gratitude, you are practicing a sense of respect towards others. I think in this day and age, that dynamic needs much focus and attention.




“We need to regularly stop and take stock; to sit down and determine within ourselves which things are worth valuing and which things are not; which risks are worth the cost and which are not. Even the most confusing or hurtful aspects of life can be made more tolerable by clear seeing and by choice.”


~ Epictetus

Kids Corner Quote

Today’s Kids Corner Quote is another inspirational quote that is to help you see beyond all imperfections, and keep a great and positive attitude on life. Not all kids have that guidance and can look ahead. Learning now, can only make our futures even better!



“Being happy doesn’t mean every things perfect. It means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections” – Anonymous


This quote is very inspiring because it teaches not only yourself, but everyone around you to see or take imperfect things, and make them perfect by being happy and seeing the positive side of those imperfections. This quote makes me think differently about the world because it actually teaches me to be positive and to see the positive things in the world. Life isn’t always going to be good, or easy, but you can see the lesson or pull something good from every situation. So when a situation gets you down, or doesn’t go your way, step back and take a look at what is happening. See what is to be learned, feel what is being sent to you in that moment. It may not always be what you want it to be, like rainbows and puppy dogs, but life is about learning, and being able to find the positive side of things is a great life trait. I hope this makes you see the bright side of life and gives you a positive look on the world like I do. Be a role model and encourage others to try and see it too. Happiness and being positive is contagious! 🙂

Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday my friends! Today was a day of relaxing and giving my soul time to catch up with my body. I shared the day with family, smiling, cooking and laughing. Now I can plan to get this new week going. Hopefully you have taken some time for yourself as well. Make this week happen with purpose. Push yourself in a way you have not done before. Go for something that you have longed to achieve. Be daring. Be brave. Be proud. Do it for you, what ever “it” is. Happiness comes from within, and once you achieve it, it will be seen by all, on the outside. Smile everyone!


“Be Daring, Be Different

Be Impractical, Be

Anything That Will

Assert Integrity Of

Purpose and Imaginitive

Vision Against The 

Play-it-Safers, The

Creatures Of The

Commonplace, The

Slaves Of The Ordinary.

It’s Friday afternoon, and it’s been a busy week! Looking back on the things that kept the week moving and interesting, and it was a good time. We all need the strength to make it through anything, strength to face another day, strength to admit life is good no matter the challenges. You have to look close at the things that truly make you smile and be happy. Blessed to have family and friends to share the days, the weeks, the years with. Hope everyone can reflect on things with a smile. Look for what you are grateful for and recognize the strength it took to make it past the things that were not so pleasant. Enjoy your days, and here are a couple quotes to give you motivation to conquer the weekend!!


You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it.



Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.

~Rikki Rodgers


Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

 ~Bruce Lee


Believe you can and you’re half way there!


In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

~Theodore Roosevelt
