Curiosity, A Wonderful Gift…

 Quotes and Notes #223, June 22, 2015

“I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.”—Eleanor Roosevelt—

I took great delight watching the child who had recently learned to walk as she moved rapidly through the strange house examining every nook, cranny, silver coaster, and other great phenomena. I could read in her eyes the unvoiced questions, “What is this? What is pretty? Shiny? Red?” And many others.

Curiosity is our teacher. Curiosity is the greatest weapon that we have against fear. We continually ask, “I wonder…” and, “what would happen if?”

So keep smiling and sharing and questioning
Everything is going to be all right

Check the Timing Belt

Quotes and Notes, January 16, 2015

“Happiness is not a goal—it’s a by-product of a life well lived.”–Eleanor Roosevelt

If I am not happy about something today, I am going to take the time to figure out what is broken and then take steps to fix it. I am going to raise the hood of my life and check out the timing belt which keeps things running in the proper sequence. I will adjust the tension of the belt slowly and carefully until everything is just right. This will make me happy and I can then go feed the birds and share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right.
