I never thought I would be saying that a calendar was one of my best Christmas gifts... but I am! For the most part, most of you know what I am about through reading my blog. Well my mom (mother in law) deals with me up front and personal and on more or less a daily basis.
This she gave me the 2012 Calendar, Pretending to Be a Normal Person Day After Day Is Exhausting. "A Calendar That Celebrates the Wonderful Wacky Woman You Truly Are." by Suzy Toronto ©... and... I Love It!!
I love the uplifting messages it sends... I love the motivating and inspiring words... And I love the art work!!
After Reading January's quote, I decided that I must share it with you. I must share all of it with you! So, at the beginning of each month I will be sharing Suzy Toronto's thoughts with you.
January 2012's message:
~ This above all: to thine ownself be true.
William Shakespeare wrote, "This above all: to thine ownself be true." Boy, did he nail it on the head!
A lot of us go through phases where we think we have to be, act, and look like everyone else in order to fit in.
I tried it, and it didn't work.
Now I realize God doesn't want an orchestra of identical instruments all playing the same tune, so I let go of the status quo and decided to just be me.
Besides, pretending to be normal day after day is exhausting!
~ Suzy Toronto
So needless to say, I could not agree with Suzy more!
Blessings to all!!
157 days to go...
PS... Sons, I love and miss you. To the moon and stars above and back. You are my sunshines.
