Message to a dear friend.

"Add 1% self love to the recipe of your life. When people appear to love and understand you, save their time by not trying to convince them they are wrong. In your darkest hours you are free to choose whether you allow darkness or light to shine; it really is a free choice. On the really tough days be a performer, an actor, shine like the brightest star in the Heavens. Two Pilots in an aircraft. 1 - Pilot Flying. 2 -Pilot Monitoring (not flying). You are Pilot Flying, you are always Pilot Flying. You spend almost your entire life as Pilot NOT flying, you do not have the time to monitor. FLY! Get to where you would like to be or at the very least enjoy the ride. I love you 10,000 times more than you love you, try to keep up xxxx"

I wish dogs lived longer,
cake didn't make you fat
and people weren't such Tw@ts.


it moved me.

I keep trying... but weather conditions continue to be unfavorable.

Thanks, Philip.

Brilliant. Yes, yes, yes!!! Me thinks I need to print this out and tape it to the Purple Room of Isolation with other words of motivating wisdom.
Thanks George for the nudge to come back home...I have missed the wit, wisdom and warmth of Mr. Banks Kiss

Wonderful words... both Philip, and Todd (I recently posted that meme on FaceSmack, Todd).

What this place needs is a like or love button. I find myself trying to click to like! lol

Oh, what a fabulous reminder and I thank you. May I use this for my yoga students?
