Never worry alone.  When anxiety grabs my mind, it is self-perpetuating.  Worrisome thoughts travel faster than rabbits, so one of the most powerful ways to stop the spiral of worry is simply to disclose my worry to a friend... The simple act of reassurance from another human being [becomes] a tool of the Spirit to cast out fear - because peace and fear are both contagious.

I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.
~ Charlotte Bronte 

Something I have to keep reminding myself.

Not Forgotten

Hello dear reader.  You thought I forgot about you?  Oh posh!  Never :)  Life has taken a (good great) turn and I've been a little self-absorbed.  Forgive me.  If you bear with me, though, I hope soon enough I'll be able to let you in on what's going on.

Until then, I shall fancy you with the odd quote.  I hope you enjoy them and that they give you something to ponder about, if only for a few minutes.

Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall.  Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day.  Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down.  And this is all life really means.

Now that it's all over, what did you really do yesterday that's worth mentioning?

It's been a long time since I posted a quote.  I came across this today and it made me smile.  Also, I read about the author who seemed a bit interesting (he had a quiet life, mostly, but very pious in his views. I've linked his name to Wiki; see under 'Religion'.  Good to stash away in the head for random Catholic trivia?).

"Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
there's always laughter and good red wine.
At least I've always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!"

Ugh.. Kill Me Now..

Sick with a cold, in the middle of summer?  Seriously?  Seriously???  I don't think I've gotten a cold in the middle of summer in my life.  Thankfully I've been off the past 3 days to be sick/recover.  Sitting up, typing this to you now, is a bit exhausting.  I really don't know how I'm going to find the energy to go to work tomorrow.  If I had a proper working laptop, I could be typing this in bed.  *sigh*

What was I going to ramble about today?  Oh right.  My dear friend CZ is getting married in a week (plus 2 days).  A WEEK!  OMG!  IT'S SO EXCITING! :D  And... IS IT REALLY THAT TIME ALREADY??  I'm really getting stoked... partly because I've got this fabulous dress that is me but isn't me (in a good way)  (and when was the last time I dressed up??) but I'm totally going to rock it.  Or at least... try.  TMI.. but I just realized today I'll be PMS'ing and bloated while in this fabulous dress.  Man.  Not cool.  I'm trying to look great and all I'll feel like is a beached whale :P  Well, try to complement me anyways, I might need it! lol  Anyways, what's cool is I got *everything* for this outfit on sale.  And I'm totally girling it up next weekend.  I've scheduled a mani-pedi for the Friday (though I think I'll cancel the manicure; I can't wear nail polish at work and I'll have to literally take it off a day later. A bit of a waste if you ask me) and get an extended special pedicure.  And I'm getting my hair done up at the salon the morning of.  Woot.  Look at me go.  Take some pictures; this one's gotta last :)

I just found out on Facebook tonight one of the girls I went to high school/public school with's sister passed away today.  That was sad :(

Um.. I could whine about how all I've been doing is resting, trying to keep up with cleaning of house, more resting, how I have no energy to do *anything*.. but that's no fun for you to hear.  I've had the a/c on cause it's best curled up under the covers when you're sick, than sprawled out because if you move you sweat.  /whine

There was some other stuff I was going to ramble about.. but.. I don't even remember.  Which means it's probably time for bed.  I'm out..

For Big Bang Theory Fans

So I randomly discovered today, in case you weren't aware, of something in the BBT episodes.  At the end of each episode after the credits, there's a white screen with black lettering, "CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS".. and the thing is, he writes something new on each one.  Sometimes they're funny, sometimes they're thought-provoking and mostly.. completely random.  And here, I've even found a link stating all of them....
