Saturday Sloppy Seconds...or something like that.

I think it was Supah that would do Sloppy seconds...or someone I don't know. If it was you let me know and I'll give the right credit.
I posted this before Britt and I got married so it had to be in the Summer of 2006. I got tons of comments on it....so many that I posted it again when 360 shut down and got a lot more comments....so it's going up it's 3rd time.


To make you think...

This is a repost......I thought I'd get some "new" thoughts on the last quote. If you have already commented on it and it means something different now, let me know.

“There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you.”

“I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

“What makes life worth living is knowing that one day you'll wake up and find the person that makes you happier than anything in the whole world. So don't ever lose hope and give up, everything turns out okay and the good guy always wins.”

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.”

“Footfalls echo in the memory, Down the passage which we did not take, Towards the door we never opened Into the rose-garden.”

What does the last quote say to you???

Oh my God! These are all very touching and insightful! I will have to steal them. They are amazing and full of powerful messages!

The last one has me a bit confused. I'm poetry and riddle stupid, though.

Lisa, I love that. I sometimes forget to love myself the way I am. I am learning slowly. I tend to love the ones around me before I do anything for myself. I have to get it right inside before I can do it right outside!

Thanks for sharing! I love your new design. Mine is changing once again...maybe this weekend.

That's quite a post there Lisa. Very thought provoking. I have not mastered loving myself unconditionally. I still feel I am just not enough as I am. Why do we feel that way, when God, in His perfection loves us as we are?

I have yet to be brave enough to walk down the unknown passageway...

It's easy to forget who we are when we're so busy doing things for others. We can forget who and what we are making it difficult to love ourselves fully.

These quotes are very inspiring and a great reminder to stop and look inside instead of always focusing on the outside.

I'm not sure of the last quote, but to me it means that you shouldn't be afraid to take the path less traveled - good things may come from it.
