“Experience is not what happens to a person; it is what the person does with what happens to them.”

Hubby took this picture on our drive to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida! I added a quote to it. Enjoy!


James Joyce

“A man’s errors are his portals of discovery.” -James Joyce

Happiness is a Habit- Cultivate it.

Happiness is a habit- cultivate it.- Elbert Hubbard

When a Man is No Longer Anxious to Do Better Than Well, He is Done For.

When a man is no longer anxious to do better than well, he is done for. – B.R Haydon

“…He Who Hath So Little Knowledge of Human Nature As to Seek Happiness By Changing Anything But His Own Disposition…”

The fountain of content must spring up in the mind, and he who hath so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition, will waste his life in fruitless efforts and multiply the grief he proposes to remove.
-Samuel Johnson

This quote resonated with me so much that I had to frame it and put it on my desk.  This way I can see it every single day and be reminded how powerful it is.  We are all responsible for our own happiness- no one else can make you happy.

I remember how I would wait for someone else to do something differently so I can be happier- this only made me more miserable because I felt like I had no choice.

Happy Friday!

“Your life is an expression of your mind.” -unknown

So VERY true! Do you like what you created?

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forward.

Just like we went to a bar for the Superbowl and stayed from the beginning to the end of the game I am also seriously contemplating doing the same for the Oscars tomorrow! I really like Anne Hathaway so crossing my fingers she does an awesome job hosting!

I just don’t like that all the good awards are toward the very very end and the show usually runs very late. I have an eye on a bar a few doors (yes, you heard that right DOORS) down from our apartment so we can easily stay out late and come home quickly to snooze.

I also read somewhere that there might be a live streaming of the Oscars online which would be superb since we don’t have a TV at home- once I confirm this there will be an another option open on how to watch it.

I have only seen two of the movies nominated for the Oscars- True Grit and Inception. I am hoping to watch King’s Speech and Black Swan soon. Also want to watch Blue Valentine which stars Ryan Gosling (huge crush) and Michelle Williams (love her and she is nominated for an Oscar).
