“When the Japanese mend broken objects they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold, because they believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.”
Wisdom is to have dreams big enough not to lose sight while we pursue them.

“As I hurried past a homeless man this morning, he started saying what we have all heard before, “excuse me, can I get a…”
Before he finished, I said “Sorry, I’m late,” and kept walking without a turn in his direction, only to hear him say behind me “… little smile.”
As I finished my walk to work feeling very small, I realized I could only apply this moving forward: Slow down, people may not be asking for quite as much of you as you assume.”
Never Look Back
Can’t wait for Paris next spring!! Even though I’ve had to hold off actually making the plans a while longer, it is still on 🙂
This makes me happy.
Advice From a Cat #4
“Love your body the way it is. Eat the kibble of your choice. Embrace your plentiful chubs. If you don’t love you, no one else will. This is why everyone loves me. This is my secret to cool.”
Disclaimer: “A happy body is also a healthy body. Be sure to consult with your veterinarian before overindulging in your favorite kibble. But, be sure to still indulge anyway… just once in a while.”

“Dreams are like laser pointers. You should still chase them, even though if you never catch them. Dare to dream… and catch that laser!”
