Joke of the Day

Joe: “My uncle used to be a judge. He became an alcoholic and lives in the park.”

Pete: “That’s too bad.”

Joe: “People still respect him. When they see him, they still say, “Can I approach the bench?”

Positive Thought of the Day ~ Surprise Yourself

“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”

NOTE: Still the negative voices. Ignore them when they scream at you. Act like the salmon who swim upstream to spawn. Put your face into the wind and keep moving. Nothing can stop you from chasing your dream if you keep chasing it. Who knows, one day you may surprise yourself and all the doubters.
