hi there! nice profile huh?



u can call me ryt there! :)


great post. sometimes we lose ourselves in the heat of the battle and need to remember our purpose: to love.


corey....although, i can agree with the semblance of the other statements that i've already heard are close to manzanar along highway 395 -- it's not big hole battlefield or wounded knee, yet, it's another psychological reference that is separate from wayne dyer....when you speak of this special human word and creation known as love -- take a ride to the base of mount whitney and the alabama hills, as you'll also skirt close to joshua tree and palm springs in a way.....manzanar and a similar schism remain -- people call this entertainment.....not so interested in party promotions that have no meaning -- but this is a wonderful post.



We convince ourselves that life will always be better.

Life will get better after we find a man to date, find a man to love, find a better man to love. Then we get frustrated because he isn't young enough and we'll be more content when we find someone who is. After that, we're frustrated because he's too old and we want someone younger. Then we're frustrated because we have interests and hobbies and he has none. Our life will be complete when our lover gets his act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to take a vacation, when we sell that novel or write that song.

Life IS the challenges that make it up. It's better to admit this and just decide to be happy. Alfred D'Souza wrote, "For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin -- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

Stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back to school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you find Mr. Right, until Mr. Wrong is gone, until you start work, until you retire, until you get yourself straightened out, until you lose your uptightness, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car, until you get a new home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter, until you are off welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, until you've had a drink, until you've sobered up, until you die to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Work like you don't need money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like no one is watching.

Uncle Zoloft

... and time to laugh.

Laughter brightens the eyes, heart, soul.

As George Carlin sez: "Nowadays I feel like I got a front row seat at the freak show." I do too and am loving every minute of it!
