News Flash: It Ain’t About Them

I hope you enjoy this reblog from Mariane@the side of the road.

along the side of the road

I would like to pass along a riveting piece of advice an dear elder of mine in AA shared with me some years ago.  She didn’t share it nicely but she did share it with love and good intention.  The love was to propel me to be honest with myself and the intention was to shatter a false reality I had lived with most of my life.  Her missions were accomplished and then some.  I have never looked at the type of thoughts and behaviours in question the same since then, and have been able to change many of my actions around them because of her.  For that, I remain forever grateful.

Oops something has gone right- An amazing 1st year with WordPress

It has truly been an amazing year of writing, blogging, having fun, sharing, entertaining and making new friends.  I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot as well.  Just before I retired I had an episode of ill health, the only way forward was to get strengthened in Christ, get good nutrition and exercise going for total recovery and make each day special.  I wasn’t doing much in way of writing and from feedback of what i wrote was I needed to improve.  Then I found WordPress, a platform that gave me a boost of energy to further develop myself and the things I want to do.  I owe a lot to sharing with you and learning from you, I have written more, got involved in more activities and initiated my personal projects to fruition than I ever did.  I am glad I am able to write this without my laptop going, “Oops, something has gone wrong.” because of storage problems   I have been trying to catch up with liking and commenting on your blog posts, on writing the Daily Prompt and by God’s Grace one day hope to bring back ‘Top of the Elevenses/Brunch’.

Thanks to you all, from my first Follower to the most recent one, to all at Admin and Blogging Fundamentals, to Mr Ngobesing Romanus and all at Success Inspirers’ World, Viewers and Readers.  There are so many names to mention and I don’t want to miss any, so just believe I send you my love and thanks too.

Blessings of Palm Sunday to you all, His love is for everyone of us because we are all SPECIAL.

“Aim as high as the sky” now share your ‘Sky’ quotes.

Sky

This is going to be short and sweet.  Folks I’m going to ask you to share some of the encouraging quotes involving the word ‘sky’, ones that you’ve been given as gifts or heard or read.  I call them gifts because they encourage and inspire us.  So please feel free to put a smile on someone else’s face, at the same time you will be humouring me.  These quotes have encouraged millions of people and will continue to do so for ages to come.

Starting with mine, which has definitely helped me through life’s journey and it’s from a family friend who said it and wrote it on a strip of card so that I could use it as a bookmark,  here it is “Aim As High As The Sky.”

What’s your quote, I’d love you share, like or comment.
