i am enjoying...
looking for old hardbacks of classics at half-price books
reading the names of paint colors in design magazines
cold weather, warm drinks and soft blankets
seeing something i like, a gift idea for someone or a recipe and actually remembering to write it down
the abundance of restaurants in dallas making refined southern food
friends collaborating to cook over the past week: taco salads and football, dinner party with homemade ribs, bacon-wrapped meatloaf on a monday
the young victoria
my new boots
discussing and planning what our front room will ultimately look like
a quick weekend trip i have coming up soon
the cowboys in the nfl play-offs
my quarter-century mark which is rapidly approaching
I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.
