When I was 5 years old my mother told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.
Today’s assignment is to sit on the beach and think about what makes me happy and how to get to a place that I can be useful and still be me. I’ll let you know if I figure anything out. Happy Friday!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the only one who’ll decide where you’ll go.
Love both these quotes. Both inspirational. And what a better wy of finding your way than on beach. Enjoy 🙂
Thank you and have a sunny Friday!
What a great picture and post – thank you for sharing them. Makes me want to be at a beach!
Next time I’ll bring an extra chair. Wouldn’t that be fun?
That would be awesome to meet you in person!
Right back at ya!
I think that is the perfect assignment for you today. Enjoy! I look forward to reading about what you discover, even if it’s as simple as “sand is a great exfoliator.” 😉
I hadn’t even thought of that! Love the water. It always makes me calm. I’m getting a little closer each day to finding out who I am. Thanks for the good wishes.
Water is a great healer. You and I are on very similar journeys…it’s nice to hear your experiences as I travel the path of self-discovery.
That quote is terrific! I may use it for my next business newsletter.
And hooray for beach days — and beach evenings! 🙂
Well coming from a soon to be ex-teacher it’s a bit of comment on the enforced conformity that irritates me to no end in our school systems. It is the most important thing though…Happy!
I loved the John Lennon quote! It was such a good reminder of what we really are striving to achieve in life.
Thanks for sharing it!
You’re welcome. Thanks for reading.
