Welcome to Thoughty Thursday! This is the day of the week when y’all get to be privy to whatever thoughts are kicking around in my brain. Today I’m thinking about friendship, only I don’t really have a ton of time to ponder it.
What the hell am I doing that I don’t have time to ponder?
Well, I’m learning Scrivener, working on a content plan for my memoir, taking an advanced Excel course for my accountants and a whole lot more. Oy!
Those are all hugely important things but they take time. Which means I’m turning things around a bit today and letting y’all run the place. (Who am I kidding, y’all run More Cowbell every day. LOL.)
First we have some quotes on friendship because I love you guys so much:
“Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”
~ Maya Angelou (1928 – )
[You know you’re a daily rainbow in my life, right?]
“ Friendship is the only cement that will hold the world together. ”
— Woodrow Wilson
[Absolutely true. I believe it’s our connections with each other that propel us to discover the best in ourselves. p.s. Your thoughts on this subject are WELCOME.]
Then we have some quotes that make me laugh, starting with Ben Franklin:
“In wine there is wisdom,
In beer there is freedom,
In water there is bacteria.”
~ Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
“If you can’t make it better, you can laugh at it.”
~ Erma Bombeck (1927-1996)
And finally, we have some life philosophy I can believe in:
“It is of practical value to learn to like yourself.
Since you must spend so much time with yourself
you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.”
~ Norman Vincent Peale
OK, it’s your turn to dispense some wisdom, and share something you think we’d just love.
For those who are new at this…Pimp and Promote means you:
1. Promote: share one thing that you’re proud of, whether it’s a new book, an idea or a blog.
2. Pimp: Do the same for someone else whose work has lit you on fire this week.
While y’all do that, I’ll be popping in and out to Oooo and Ahhhh at your awesomeness, plus I’ll be gaining some new mastery over how to use Excel 2010 in accounting. (You know you’re insanely jealous of my day. LOL.)
You. Comments. Go…Pimp and Promote!!
