Quote of the Week

Dood - Big Changes!
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.  
- Author Unknown

The only person we can truly change is ourselves, and then only when we're truly ready.  Change is seldom easy, whether it is dreaded or embraced, whether it's by choice or necessity.  However, changing ourselves is an even greater challenge.


  1. So very very true, Linda.

  2. Wow! That said a mouthful, Linda!

  3. Linda,

    This is an interesting twist of the Serenity Quote, which is one of my favorites.

    This quote and your interpretation of it led me to do some thinking about this. The bottom line is what you said, whatever the change, we have to decide to change ourselves.

    Well said and thanks:~)

  4. Linda,

    I can't believe I didn't comment on your nice award. I love seeing it here at your site. It was well deserved:~)

  5. Linda, if your name were Jack, to this post I'd resoundingly exclaim, "That's a fact, Jack!!"

    Well you're not Jack. You're Linda, and that we can change only ourselves is a FACT.

    Great inspiration -- thanks.


  6. whoops, it seems I was in Blue Bunny's account again! :)



  7. Talon- Yes, and very fitting now.

    Linda- Indeed it did. A mouthful to take to heart.

    Sara- Deciding to change ones self and the actual changing are both difficult undertakings. Oh, I was pleased to receive the award - thank you.

    Blue Bunny and Jannie- No, I'm not Jack. ;) The rest is fact! Oh, and I figured it was you, Jannie.
