Quote of the Day

I received this quote from one of the contestants at Miss Oklahoma.  Everything we had worked for during the past year was about to be showcased.  “Remember to look through the windshield–and not the rear view mirror…Why?  Because you’ve already been there!  The future is in front of you.”  –Leah Shaver former Miss Texas

There is always more that can be done and accomplished; however, there comes a point when we have to embrace the gains we have made.

Quote of the Day

This is a great message!  “I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need.  To me those are traditional values.  That is what I stand for.”  –Ellen Degeneres

As stated by Ellen at the end of every show, “Be kind to one another.”

We’re in London Love!

Hi All,

After docking in Southampton my friends and I took an hour and a half train ride to London.  We immediately hopped on the London Eye for an overview of the city.  The London Eye is 443 feet tall–so high that the people below us looked like specks.  Many of the pictures below are taken from the London Eye.

One of my favorite days was a bike tour of the city.  We were able to see the city full-fledged in a way we couldn’t if we had taken the London Underground or a taxi.  London itself holds a fast paced environment.  Its people are well dress and the architecture is grandeur.

Enjoy,

Quote of the Day

I love this quote from Randy Pausch’s book, The Last Lecture:  “The brick walls [in life] are not there to keep us out.  The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how  badly we want something.”

If you haven’t heard of Randy Pausch check out his lecture on YouTube.  He has a really inspiring story and presents gratitude for life in a different light.
