Give a man a fish and he has food for a day; teach him how to fish and you can get rid of him for the entire weekend.
Weekends don’t pay as well as weekdays but at least there’s football.
The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend.
Better days are coming. They are called Saturday and Sunday.
Inc.com had an article at the beginning of 2015 that lists 57 ways to make 2015 fabulous. I know we are all fabulous but there are times we get too busy or too tired and we forget how wonderful and extraordinary we are! Here’s a few things to help remind us of what we can do to make 2015 (and beyond) fabulous.
- Stop comparing yourself to others. You have no idea where someone else’s journey might them, so drawing comparisons is a complete waste of time.
- Take a long bath. When you’re in the tub, you can’t use your electronics so that’s a perfect haven where work pressures simply can’t reach you.
- Take joy in small victories. Don’t wait for the big wins to celebrate. Celebrate the intermediate milestones that you hit along the way.
- Take more walks outside. When things get intense at the office, a breath of fresh air and a stretch of your legs can give you valuable perspective.

The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
A bad habit never disappears miraculously. It’s an undo-it-yourself project.
Abigail Van Buren
The hard must become habit. The habit must become easy. The easy must become beautiful.
Nothing so needs reforming as other people’s habits.

The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser — in case you thought optimism was dead.
An optimist is the human personification of spring.
Susan J. Bissonette
Optimism is the foundation of courage.
Nicholas Murray Butler
If an optimist had his left arm chewed off by an alligator, he might say, in a pleasant and hopeful voice, “Well, this isn’t too bad. I don’t have my left arm anymore, but at least nobody will ever ask me whether I am right-handed or left-handed,” but most of us would say something more along the lines of “Aaaaah! My arm! My arm!”

Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons.
The handwriting on the wall means the grandchildren found the crayons.
Life lesson from the nursery: Broken crayons can still color.
Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air — explode softly — and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth — boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either — not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.

It has been left to our generation to discover that you can move heaven and earth to save five minutes and then not have the faintest idea what to do with them when you have saved them.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
And to this day I wish I had lingered a week or so…. But we stupid mortals, or most of us, are always in haste to reach somewhere else, forgetting that the zest is in the journey and not in the destination.
Ralph D. Paine
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
St Francis de Sales
