Today I am looking at work. In my job, I see so many people struggling with things many of us take for granted.

When you hate the thought of getting out of bed and going to work, remember there are those that would give anything just to be able to get out of bed, let alone have the strength to work.

Episode 502: 3 Day Quote Challenge, Day 3. — September 17, 2015

Episode 502: 3 Day Quote Challenge, Day 3.

This is the last day of the 3 Day Quote Challenge that my blogging friend Erika  nominated me for. Please visit her blog for enlightenment, humour and wisdom, along with lots more.

I have really enjoyed this challenge; I have been looking for quotes on humour as that is what my blog strives to achieve.

I have found this one which sums up humour as a whole:

I like people who make me laugh. I honestly think that laughing is the thing I like most. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.

-Audrey Hepburn

Here are the rules of the challenge:

  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you.
  • Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days in your blog. It can be your own, or from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavour.

My nominees (should they wish to accept) are:

Wendy of the Rock

Breathing Life

Purple Slob in Recovery

Episode 499: 3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1

I have been nominated by Erika to take part in the 3 Day Quote Challenge. Both of us have taken part in this before, but it is such fun, and I was thrilled when she nominated me this time. If you have not visited Erika’s blog before, you are missing out on words of wisdom, inspirational quotes, plus so much more.

So here are the rules of the challenge:

  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you.
  • Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days in your blog. It can be your own, or from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavour.

My quote then is one from Charles Dickens; I have decided that my quotes will all be on the same theme which is ‘humour.’

There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.

I also get to show off the blockquote thing I learned from Writing 101 this morning!

The rules of the challenge:

Being a person that loves their food, I thought this quote was particularly apt for me:

Episode 358: #BeWow Post: My Favourite Positive Quote. — June 3, 2015

Episode 358: #BeWow Post: My Favourite Positive Quote.

For our BeWow posts this week, Rovonan has suggested we might like to share our favourite quotes on positivity. I love this one:

‘Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.’ Albert Einstein.

To me, this quote speaks volumes. When I was growing up I was not only extremely shy, but also painfully clumsy and awkward. This made for a terribly unfortunate combination, and I know many thought I was stupid. Being shy meant that I did not want to engage much in conversation (even now I am rubbish at small talk), so that gave the impression that I had nothing worth contributing. Added to that, when I did try to join in, I would either stumble over my words or say the wrong thing as I rarely think before I speak (I still do that, and only today had to amend a comment that I realised straight away I had got completely wrong)!

Throw the clumsiness into the mix, and you really have a walking disaster! I have been on the receiving end of many a strange look as I have plucked up the courage, launched myself into a room, only to go flying over something. As a teenager I took part in a German student exchange trip with my school. On my first morning in Germany as I went to go outside onto the balcony for breakfast, I walked smack bang into the glass doors and nearly knocked myself out!

However, this fish can swim, and I found that as I got older and became less shy, I also became more determined to prove that I am not completely stupid (ok so I am no way a genius either), and can do things with competently. (However I know that if I had to take blood from any of my family, they would run a mile at the sight of me coming at them with a needle, my patients though, do not have that luxury)!

The point is, we are all good at something. Just because we might not be dexterous or academic, does not mean that we are idiots, or stupid, and that is why I love this quote, as it highlights the fact that not only should we not judge others on things we consider they should be good at, but also the fact that if we do, it can have a devastating effect on them that can last a lifetime.
