“Jump Out the Window and Grow Wings”


“Life is short, Break the Rules.

Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.

Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably

And never regret ANYTHING

That makes you smile.”     (Mark Twain)



“I never think of what I am proud about.  I never look back, except to find out about mistakes.  Because mistakes are hard to remember and to draw conclusions from.  But I only see danger in thinking back about things you are proud of.  When people ask me if I am proud of something, I just shrug and hope to get away as soon as possible.  I should explain that my way is to look ahead, all my pleasant thoughts are about the future.  It has been that way since I was twenty years old.  I start every day fresh.”    (Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann)



“Dreams come true, that’s what they do.  The only variable is when.

For the slow approach:  Resist.  Attach.  Insist.  Deny.  Stop.  Second guess. Whine.  Argue.  Defend.  Protest. Cry.  Struggle.  And ask others, ‘when you know the answer yourself.’

For the quick approach:  Visualize.  Pretend.  Prepare.  Dodge.  Roll.  Serpentine.  Do not waiver over intentions, but over methods.  Show up, even when nothing happens.  And give thanks in advance.

You knew that,

“Our great business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.”    (Thomas Carlyle)



“Sometimes you just have to jump out the window and grow wings on the way down.”    (Ray Bradbury)
