“There are dreamers, and there are realists in this world. You’d think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists but more often than not, the opposite is true.
You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun.
And the realists?
Well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.”
– Ben Karlin, Modern Family, 2011

Well, since it looks like this may be a record week, I think I’ll keep up with my dream.
Freaky Friday is pretty simple. It’s about the CRAZY! 🙂 Crazy things people do, crazy things people say, crazy things I do or say, crazy images, crazy news… you get it, right?
This week, I’ll start off with a quote that gave me quite a laugh:
“I HAD A BOYFRIEND WHO TOLD ME I’D NEVER SUCCEED, NEVER BE NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY, NEVER HAVE A HIT SONG, AND THAT HE HOPED I’D FAIL. I SAID TO HIM, ‘SOMEDAY, WHEN WE’RE NOT TOGETHER, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO ORDER A CUP OF COFFEE AT THE &@#%*€£ DELI WITHOUT HEARING OR SEEING ME.” – LADY GAGA
Yes, you read right, Lady GAGA! Love her or hate her, that is one messed up ex… 😀
Next up is one of my favorites by Angelina Jolie:
“IF BEING SANE IS THINKING THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH BEING DIFFERENT, I’D RATHER BE COMPLETELY &@#%*€£ MENTAL.”
I don’t think I need to say anything about that. Actually, that isn’t a quote that belongs in Freaky Friday. It belongs in Thoughtful Thursday. But, I like being different, so, it stays…
I’m in trouble, that didn’t belong in Freaky Friday either… I think that should be part of some sort of DAY OF NOTHING BUT THE COMPLETE TRUTH. I mean, yeah. I’m not crazy.
Oh, come on! I’ve been staying away from Twilight references for a LONG time… Cut me some slack!
And of course, my post wouldn’t be complete without…
Thank you, thank you… 🙂
Now everyone, go off and have a beautiful weekend.
And THANK you for reading and humoring me. I love you.

So, In keeping with my dream sequence, Thursday is Thoughtful Thursday.
Now, Thoughtful Thursday can be many things:
- Sharing my pointless thoughts about anything and everything
- Getting serious about issues
- Ranting and Venting about important or unimportant things
- Sharing others thoughts
For this, my first Thoughtful Thursday, I’m going to stick with sharing others thoughts. What this means for this week, is sharing some quotes that have made a difference in my life this week. Now, some of these quotes, I’ve already inundated you with on countless other social networks. So, Please forgive me if you’re just too tired of them. 😀 I mean well, I do. And more importantly, they help me.
”Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Until today, you may not have been aware of how unkind, impatient, unsupportive, critical, angry, frustrated and tough you can be with yourself. Just for today, be aware of how you treat yourself. Remember, awareness is the first step toward change.
Today I am devoted to becoming more aware of how I am with myself!” – Iyanla Vanzant
“Simple faith, grounded in Simple trust, grounded by Simple prayer, will yield Simply fantastic results!” – Iyanla Vanzant
“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” – Albert Schweitzer
“Telling the truth to people who misunderstand you is generally promoting a falsehood, isn’t it?” -Anonymous
“Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.” – Unknown
“Sarcasm: A literary device for identifying the stupid.” – Unknown
That’s it… Some of these quotes have helped me through the days these week. They’ve helped me grow and learn. Some of these quotes have helped me laugh and not take myself (or others) so seriously. So, I’m keeping them here, close by, where I can come back and use them for my own benefit.
I hope you all have a wonderful, thoughtful Thursday. 🙂

It’s been a couple of weeks filled with a roller coaster of emotions. I think that’s why I haven’t been keeping up with the updates. (I thank my robot for keeping it up!)
So today, I will still not really write… Just share a few quotes. Maybe soon…
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
“Its not always rainbows and butterflies, its compromise that moves us along…”
~From the Maroon 5 song “she will be loved”
“Understanding is God’s Responsiblity. Trusting is Ours.” (I don’t know the author…)
“…There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough:
The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough. ”

Success in the affairs of life often serves to hide one’s abilities, whereas adversity frequently gives one an opportunity to discover them.
I think we all need to repeat that to ourselves from time to time…

“I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.”
