Dr. Seuss knew what he was talking about

The message fro Dr. Seuss is brilliant. It's tough to UN-slump yourself. And this is what he means:
From Dr Seuss’ Oh! The Places You’ll Go!
Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes, you won’t.
I’m sorry to say so
but, sadly, it’s true
that bang-ups
and hang-ups
can happen to you.
You can get all hung up
in a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on.
You’ll be left in a Lurch.
You’ll come down from the Lurch
with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are, then,
that you’ll be in a Slump.
And when you’re in a Slump,
you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself
is not easily done.
 Change is hard. Getting out of your comfort zone is hard. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. Like with a diet, if diets worked, we'd all be fit. Being lazy is like a drug. Baby steps can make anything possible. And in moderation. I like to have a nice harmonious balance of all things. This is a great kid's book. But my all time favorite is 'The cat in the hat'. Now that's a cat I could live in harmony with!
This blog post was inspired by an article from my favorite blog called It inspires me every day.

What I've been up to and favorite current quote of the week

In case anybody's been wondering what I've been up to it's this. My camera's been on the fritz and I've been renting (I know??!!) a camera for the weekends because Canon wants to hog my camera for a month. :-(No fair) and forces me to focus on other projects such as selling collectibles on eBay. Which isn't very creative but it's at least an adrenaline rush. What most people don't know is that it's quite time consuming and requires a lot of heavy research. And if you don't cover all your bases you can get seriously burned. I've reached 'top rated seller/power seller' status which is based on ratings, shipping and EXCELLENT customer service(and a lot of hard work). It keeps me busy, brings in some extra cash and the thrill at the end of any auction is a blast. I spend a lot of my time with ebay and I love it. In case you are curious to see what I have listed currently, check it out here also love the time spent with family and friends lately. I keep myself busy and everything I do is valuable to me which leads me to my quote of the week by Michael LeBouf:
'Waste your money, and you're only out of money, but waste you're time and you've lost a part of you're life.'
Every moment is a precious moment to me, but hey, if I want to kick my shoes off and chill with a glass of wine while staring at my dogs chasing their tail, that is not time wasted. That is enriching your life. And bringing your stress levels down a notch. Who doesn't want that?
