Part Time Blogger and I are going to see my secret lover in concert tonight. I can’t wait. Seriously – if I knew how to make time go faster it would be six o’clock…right…NOW!
Ok, so that try didn’t work, but it doesn’t mean I can’t keep trying.
At least until there's a restraining order...Slag watched the Randy Pausch lecture from my post a few days ago (like a GOOD minion) and wondered if you can evolve from an Eeyore into a Tigger. Well, I think that some people are more naturally one than the other, but that all of us can make a choice.
People forget, I know I do, just how amazingly powerful each of us is. We can choose how to react to most situations, we can choose whether or not to give up, or get bitter, or be beaten down. We can choose, like the athletes I spoke of yesterday, to get up and try again – to rededicate ourselves each day to whatever our goals are. Randy once said in an interview, “Even Tigger cries”. So it’s not that we never get discouraged or have to take a moment, it’s that we decide, each day to try and find the joy. To try and have fun.
In the spirit of Slag’s question, Randy’s life and my never ending quest to be noticed by John Legend here are some of my favorite quotes – I hope they help you as they have me:
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
After one has discovered what he is called for, he should set out to do it
with all of the power that he has in his system.
-Dr. Marian Wright Edleman
You are in charge of your own attitude – whatever others do or circumstances
you face. The only person you can control is yourself.
whatever you can do,
or dream you can,
power and magic in it.
