    Sometimes it's your attitude, not your aptitude, that determines your altitude!

    Love this! @jaarch

    Have you ever heard this one...it may seem cliche lol, but it is so true!

    "We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

    It's still one of my FAVES!

    I think Christopher Reeve had a lot of wise words, including: "So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable."

    My middle school rotunda had famous quotes painted around it...quotes from Abraham Lincoln and others...and the Christopher Reeve one I just mentioned. I always did love that.

    IMPOSSIBLE IS JUST A BIG WORD THROWN AROUND BY SMALL MEN WHO FIND IT EASIER TO LIVE IN THE WORLD THEY’VE BEEN GIVEN THAN TO EXPLORE THE POWER THEY HAVE TO CHANGE IT. IMPOSSIBLE IS NOT A FACT. IT’S AN OPINION. IMPOSSIBLE IS NOT A DECLARATION. IT’S A DARE. IMPOSSIBLE IS POTENTIAL. IMPOSSIBLE IS TEMPORARY.

    IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING.

    Okay- you guys are crushing this post....keep them coming,..especially if something new pops into your head. I have always wished to have a notebook full of those "uhuh" quotes. Today I wrote a personal post around a quote that hit my soul... 

    "WISDOM is nothing more than healed pain". 

    I would change the wording slightly from "nothing more" to "holy crap, YOU did the hard work to heal that pain". That in itself is a HUGE celebration. Be aware, be proud.
