Albert Einstein’s Thoughts about Beauty

 Albert Einstein Beauty Quote

“The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. . . . The ordinary objects of human endeavor – property, outward success, luxury – have always seemed to me contemptible.” -Albert Einstein

Beginner’s Guide to Blogging

Dare to fail


“Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy


There seems to be an increasing number of people that are interested in running their own blog.  Interested in becoming an entrepreneur! Strong indicators of this interest are the numerous ebooks, forums, and well, blog posts written about this vein of entrepreneurship. Just last month alone, I received a couple dozen emails from women seeking knowledge and opportunities.


To help meet the need that is out there I have began writing a Beginner’s Guide to Blogging series.  I know that there are several people who have already written about this topic, many who are much more qualified than I am, but since people are asking for my help I want to do what I can to share all the information I know.


While I have several topics completed already {though none are published yet} today I thought, “What else should I include?”  Here’s where you come in.  I would love for you to share your questions.  If you’re a seasoned blogger feel free to share what you would have liked to have known in the beginning instead of having to learn the hard way.


I look forward to your thoughts to make this a thorough series!!


Before I close this, I just have to say that I am not at a place where I consider myself an incredibly successful blogger so please know that this isn’t coming from an “I have arrived” perspective but more like a friend trying to help you do what she’s able to do.  I hope that makes sense.  I will continue to hold on to this the Dare To Fail strategy.  It’s working so far.


Anybody else with me … ??

Live Your Life So That…

Live Your Life


“Live your life so that when something bad is said of you no one will ever believe it.”  This has always been a favorite saying of mine and I was reminded of it recently when a friend’s Facebook account was hacked.  Someone was under my friend’s name and they were posting things that weren’t in line with his character.  I immediately reported the images to Facebook and signed under my husband’s account to do the same.


Today my friend had posted an an apology and all the comments following said that they knew it wasn’t him and several had reported the images to Facebook as well.  Here was his apology which I think was well written, “Several of you received a very inappropriate photo in which I was supposedly tagged. My apologies; it was a hack. I am sad that juvenile minds think they are adult when they post such rubbish. Get a life, whoever you are! Better yet, get the Savior and live a life that amounts to something!”  Well said from a man who knows about living a life that amounts to something!  This godly man recently retired from being an associate professor and librarian at the Bible college I went to.  He loves God and that is exemplified through his life of service!  Live your life so that when something bad is said of you no one will ever believe it!


Beauty and Happiness Quote


“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” – Anne Frank


I think that this is a great quote on it’s own but it’s so much more powerful knowing it came from Anne Frank, a girl who knew adversity.  Beauty and happiness, I think they go well together too.
