“The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.”
~ Mark Twain
Sterling A. Brown
I have gone back in boyish wonderment
To things that I had foolishly put by. . . .
Have found an alien and unknown content
In seeing how some bits of cloud-filled sky
Are framed in bracken pools; through chuckling hours
Have watched the antic frogs, or curiously
Have numbered all the unnamed, vagrant flowers,
That fleck the unkempt meadows, lavishly.
Or where a headlong toppling stream has stayed
Its racing, lulled to quiet by the song
Bursting from out the thickleaved oaken shade,
There I have lain while hours sauntered past—
I have found peacefulness somewhere at last,
Have found a quiet needed for so long.
“No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.” Og Mandino
Refuse to quit. Choose to learn from losses and failures, before you know it, they’ll be calling you the comeback kid.
Slow down. Enjoy those you love. Enjoy life.
Don’t Miss the Important things of life.

Joe: “It ended up being more of a wrap.”
