Thoughtful Thursdays and Funny Fridays

Rant alert, this post is a tad long since I missed yesterdays theme.

Yesterday, I wasn't feeling a theme but today I'm retroactively feeling that Thursdays should be thoughtful.  So below is what I would have written yesterday if I were feeling it.

Mi madre', Yvonne Ottley, sent an email to me that seemed appropriate for Thoughtful Thursdays it has positive answers to our often negative minds.  Since my mom knows that my mind tends to go to a darker more negative place, it was great of her to forward this chart to me.  She really knows me.  I love you mom and thanks for always encouraging me in your subtle and not so subtle ways.  My mom is a lovely 72 and she has recently started blogging so please click on her name to visit her blog link encourage her and be encouraged.

Don't take life so seriously!

Today is International 
Disturbed People's Day

Please send an encouraging 
message to a disturbed friend...

I don't care if you lick windows,
take the special bus
or occasionally pee on yourself...
You hang in there sunshine, 
you're special

Every sixty seconds you spend angry,
 upset or mad, 
is a full minute of happiness 
you'll never get back.

Today's Message of the Day is:

Life is short, Break the rules, 
Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, 
Laugh uncontrollably, 
And never regret anything that made you smile..


  1. Very uplifting. Breaking the rules is very freeing!! And laughter - gotta have it!

    p.s. maybe you can shrink the font a bit so the whole quote can fit in the post.

  2. I love the chart! What a great thing.
