In that space is our power to choose our response.

In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

  1. I have so many of those quotes written down. THIS one I’ve never heard: Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce. But I gotta tell you it describes me perfectly in gym class in junior high school! 😀 And in that damn gym suit — the kind that snapped up the front — I LOOKED like a ball!

    The quote by Eleanor Roosevelt has always been one that’s p*ssed me off. And no, I don’t have it in my quote book. In fact, maybe I’ll do a post about it tomorrow!

    Yup! Sometimes my red rubber ball deflates, so I keep a pump handy at all times. It’s not as efficient as I’d like, but it does the job 🙂
