Sleepless in Seattle

11 Mar

I can see why there are many sleepless nights. This rain is for the birds…or shall I say semi-lonely and depressed. My hair can’t take anymore!!! You’re considered a tourist if you have an umbrella…wet with messy hair if you don’t. On the flipside there is some great fashion, cool people, and lots of great food and things to see. Below are just a few things I prepped myself for while taking advantage of the no sales tax the day before.


While You Were Sleeping

9 Mar

While you were sleeping…I couldn’t sleep, so I found myself reading every article I could find on my iphone. I stumbled on a poem in a Dear Abby column. It was a great poem about forgiveness by the late Robert Muller. Robert Muller is a former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations.

The poem is called “Decide to Forgive,” and it goes like this…

Decide to forgive

For resentment is negative

Resentment is poisonous

Resentment diminishes and devours the self.

Be the first to forgive,

To smile and to take the first step

And you will see happiness bloom

On the face of your human brother or sister.

Be always the first

Do not wait for others to forgive

For by forgiving

You become the master of fate

The fashioner of life

A doer of miracles.

To forgive is the highest,

Most beautiful form of love.

In return you will receive

Untold peace and happiness.

She then follows with a daily forgiveness schedule…well worth checking out.
