A Sum of All the Parts. All of Them.

        There are a very few people whom I've told this, directly, but... I must admit, those people deserve the gratitude of anyone whose life as been positively affected in any way by my existence.  Because it is thanks to those people that I still remain in existence here in life, and if anyone is glad I'm around, then they need to be glad those few people have helped keep me around.

        Hmm... this hasn't been intended as a heavy post... but surprises do happen.  I could blame it on a very taxing week; I guess we'll have to see what falls out of my head, hmm?

Worthwhile, Broken, Butterfly Wings, and Other Things

        I'm not sure how to describe this week's post, actually.  It could be seen as part macabre, and part inspiration, perhaps?  Don't worry, though...I have young friends who read this blog, so I'm going to do my best to keep it in the spirit of the PB Project in general.  It's just that I found this quote and it has been nudging me for ages, begging to be used, and I've not been giving it its due, we go.
        No idea what I'll be writing after this, but hopefully it will be worth reading!

Finding Meaning and Value in a Positive Spin

        I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about some of the really horrible things that can happen in life, in general.  Between things like catastrophe, accident, illness, loss, pain...

        Stress, strain, grief, and pain, are all a part of life, but we don't need to have it rule our lives.

Choosing Your Own Challenge of Courage and Change

        I would like to start with a truth, this week.  I usually throw a truth or two into the mix, at some point, but this time, I want to start with one that will set the stage for whatever it is that will come after the page break.  An important one, and somewhat multi-faceted.

        The truth:  I am not good with change.

Smiling in the Face of Life's Experience

Ever have an experience in life when you've made choices that led to amazing things...
and then ended up with undesirable consequences?

Or perhaps an experience when you've felt absolutely wonderful...
and then suddenly something happens and you're left with undesirable
(even horrible) circumstances?

Well, I have some news for you!
