“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life. I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou
Number of Posts:
Mom, Wife, Teacher, Friend and a bit of a know-it-all at times. I mean well so that's got to count for something, right? I'm generally a latecomer to most fads (LJ included), but once I start I become obsessed rather quickly. My LJ posts often contain rants...I vent...a lot!
Weaknesses: Gossip (particularly celebrity gossip), motivation when it comes to dieting, easily distracted, generally always tired, a perfectionist when it comes to me but forgiving of others' imperfections.
Special Skills: Welcoming and making just about anyone feel at ease, a damn fine teacher, having marvellous conversations with myself as I'm trying to work through "stuff".
Weapons: Sarcasm aplenty
Pet Peeves: People who are inconsiderate, selfishness and bad plastic surgery.
