There Comes A Time…

“A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.” – Stewart Alsop

Unfortunately we can’t postpone the inevitable, we’re not super humans for a reason.

Changing Times

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” – Andy Warhol

The actual time on a clock is constantly changing, but really it’s all the same. We, as humans, are the ones who have to make each hour, minute, and second different and distinguishable from the rest.

Deep Pool

“Once the water is deep enough that you must swim to stay afloat, does it really matter how deep the pool is?” – Seth Godin

After you commit to something, no matter how difficult it gets, you can’t pull back, otherwise you’ll find yourself sinking to the bottom of the pool… unless you’re handed a life vest.

Costless Compliment

“Some people pay a compliment as if they expected a receipt.”
– Kin Hubbard

A compliment should never be given with the anticipation that you’ll get something in return for it. You should choose to give one because you want to, and at no cost to the recipient.

Follow Your Heart

“Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart.” – Unknown

Much easier said than done.

Forever Asking Fool

“He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.” – Chinese Proverb

Knowing more, will, most likely, give you a higher level of understanding. So, always continue to ask and, hopefully, you’ll get more answers.

Clothes Off

“To say something nice about yourself, this is the hardest thing in the world for people to do. They’d rather take their clothes off.” – Nancy Friday

To an extent I agree with this quote. In my opinion, saying something nice about ourselves is one of the hardest things to do, but not the hardest thing to do. It’s usually easier to let others say something nice about ourselves, as they notice our characteristics, good or bad, from an outside perspective.

Also, the setting in which we would be required to take our clothes off would have to have significant consideration. Would it be in our own home? Perfectly manageable. At someone else’s home? I’ve learned my lesson. In public? Highly unlikely for most.

Personally, I’d rather say something nice about myself before taking my clothes off (sarcasm).
