Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Theme for today: Change
NOT THIS KIND though!!

Maya Angelou

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.

Stephen Covey

There are three constants in life... change, choice and principles.

Wayne Dyer

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Wayne Dyer

What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.

Albert Einsten
If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.

Ronald Regan

All great change in America begins at the dinner table.

**************************

I struggle with change. I don't like it. At all. Too bad for me though, because change happens whether we like it or not, lol! I almost always love the change after it's happened and I'm "comfortable" again, but it's the process of getting there I find so hard to deal with.

***************************

Last night I had a HORRIBLE dream!!! Did you ever have a bad dream and while you were waking up, you weren't exactly sure what was real and what wasn't??? UGH! I hate that!!! And to make matters worse, Thomas either slept-walked into the sitting room or tried to get away from my snoring and wasn't there with me!!! I ran as fast as I could to go get him though. He asked me "why" when I told him to come back to bed. BECAUSE I SAID SO!!!! Which sounds a lot better than I'm scared to death to sleep by myself, in the dark, because the ghosties are gonna get me!!!! I didn't care that he was laughing at me because he was snuggly warm and strong and I knew no ghostie would DARE to mess with my soldier.

Stampin Up is totally redoing ALL their colors. That means inks, paper, accessories, EVERYTHING!!! (groan!) Here is the new color chart for the upcoming catalog in June/July.

These are the colors that will be gone for good. That means ink pads, refills, markers, paper, ribbon - everything. So my advice to you is that if you have a favorite, get it NOW while you can!! I'm so sad to see some of my all-time favorites leaving with no close replacement coming.
If you have a demonstrator, place your order as soon as possible to ensure you get everything you want, and if you don't have one, I'd be happy to be yours!

Change is sometimes good. I could sure use some right now when it comes to politics. Ugh.

Thank you for that beautiful card, hun. It put a huge smile on my face. You are such a sweetheart.

Change is hard for me, too, even if it is good change. I like having a plan and sticking to it! No dramas allowed!

Happy Wednesday!

Well italy is a change you are doing well with that! LOL Kidding but yes I am not happy with the SU change but only because I really love summer sun.

I had a dream that made me literally fall off the sofa a couple nights ago - I dreamt I was somehow back in College during the last day of math class in my senior year and the Professor hollars out when the end of class bell rings, "Remember your 15 page paper on 'Why Math Has Been Good To You' is do in my office no later than noon tomorrow!"

...and I hadn't even started it...

The top picture is soooo funny!

I hate it when I find something I love and then it becomes discontinued! Grrr. This especially seems to happen with make-up! I would totally stock up if I were you!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

I too struggle with change. I am really not happy when someone moves my cheese....I do adapt...it just takes me a bit. I also have those dreams...and one night had a really bad one....when I woke I slugged my husband in the right arm....which of course woke him up. LOL

I don't mind some change. But a lot of it makes me cranky.

AliceKay said...

I hate change and fight it every step of the way. In the end, it's usually inevitable.

I've had a couple of strange dreams lately, but I'm not sure why or what they mean.

Mira said...

I love this one: If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts. :)

Mimi said...

I've been having lots of terrible nightmares lately. I don't remember them, but Chris has had to wake me up several times because I'm screaming or yelling!
