Friday’s Five

20110415-094213.jpg

Sometimes in life we get caught up in ourselves, our success and failures, our dreams and nightmares, our carefree and stressful moments. These are the times, yes good times too, that we might need motivation to keep going. Here are five motivational quotes that I love:

1. “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein
How many times have you been scared to try something new? I know I have but in the end it generally turns out great! That being said you don’t have to jump in feet first but at least stick your toe in the water and give it a try!

2. “Kites rise highest against the wind – not with it.” – Sir Winston Churchill
How many of us have quite because something got hard? Pushing through tough times is what makes you stronger. Then when imes get tough again, and they will, you’ll be even better at pushing through it.

3. “Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.” – Ralph Marston
Plain and simple- positive attitudes equal positive moments that lead to excellence.

4. “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” – Leo Tolstoy
No one is perfect. Self reflection and improvement is a necessary part of daily life.

5. “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao-Tsu
Last but not least my most favorite quote of all time. You will get NO WHERE standing still. If you want to succeed and change then you must move forward!

What are some of your favorite quotes?

Friday’s Five

Whooo hoo it’s FRIDAY! This week has been a stressful one but now it’s time to start the weekend festivities. Today I have a few errands to run and then rest up for my 5k tomorrow morning. Then we have an Open House on Sunday. I sure hope both go well. Anyways, since this week has been crazy I’ve had to find funny stuff to laugh at as a stress buster. Here are five that had me rolling on the floor, ENJOY!

Five Pet Peeves

Everyone has “Pet Peeves.” You know, little things that people do that just grate on your nerves. Well, here are five pet peeves of mine.

1.  I hate it when my hubby leaves the shower thingy on the faucet in the tub. He does this pretty much Photobucketevery day. It’s annoying because I get sprayed in the back of my head with cold water. Most of the time I look before I get in the shower but every once in a while  I’m not quite awake or in too much of a hurry to look and BAM cold water right to the noggin.

2. PhotobucketPeople who block the grocery aisle with their carts. Move your cart to the side so that other people can get through. I find it rude that people are so oblivious to others around them. Especially when you are standing there waiting to get by, they see you, and still make no effort to make room for others or you to get by. I also hate it when people block what I am trying to get to on the aisle. Pick out the one you want and move on. Others would like to shop as well. Thank you.

3. It is beyond gross when people blow their nose at the dinner table or in close proximity of me when I am eating. IPhotobucket do not want a side of boogers with my beef. Thank you, but I will pass. GAG GAG GAG!

4.  It grates my nerves when people click or tap their pens incessantly. All I want to do is grab the pen and Photobucketchunk it across the room. Who wants to listen to “click click click click click” over and over again while trying to either work or listen to something important. If you know you are what I refer to as a “Pen Clicker” then don’t hold the pen in your hand unless you are using it for it’s intended purpose.

5. Last, but not least, I hate when I receive drunk emails from certain people. Okay, really it’s just one certain person and I’m not sure she knows who she is because she’s generally to drunk to even know what day it is. Also, her drunk emails make absolutely NO SENSE! They are either one or two not related words or ramblings of crap that pretty much only she cares about because she is the only one that can decipher what they say.Photobucket
