1st post of 2009!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year with family and friends!
Here's the 1st inspiration of 2009!
And we are going to have a contest!
I'm crossing my fingers, and hoping I get some responses to this. Anyways, I hope everyone has been inspired at some point in their life. We are going to see who has the most inspiring story! So everyone send me your personal story, and once I get enough I'll make a poll and everyone can vote. The story can be about anything really, anything that is kinda life changing. I hope you all like this. =] and also continue to send in your inspiration. Thanks - Joy

All I want is Ultimate Bliss.

Remember when we were little and a band aid could fix anything? A little scrap, or cut, just put on a band aid it and everything was all better. We need to make life simple again like it used to. I want a band aid to fix all my problems. - Anonymous

Do Not Quit!
When things go wrong,
as they sometimes will,
When the road your trudging
Seems all uphill,
When the funds are low
And the debts are High ,
And you want to smile,
but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with it's twists an turns,
As everyone of us must sometimes learn,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it our,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you cannot quit.

If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.

The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else.

-- E. E. Cummings

There is no such thing in anyone's life as an unimportant day.

-Alexander Woollcott

Let go of the past,
Only then you more towards the future.
Let go of the regrets,
only then you move towards the happiness.
Let go of the presumptions,
one then you move towards the truth.
Let go of the problems,
Only then you move towards the solution.
Let go of yourself,
only then you move towards the divinity.

It's possible to forget how alive we really are. We can become dry and tired, just existing, instead of really living. We need to remind ourselves of the juice of life, and make that a habit. Find those places inside that jump for joy, and do things. - Unknown

Remember to send in a story and inspiration! Thanks!

Happy 2009 Joy!

What a great idea. I will try and come up with something that has inspired me. It might be something silly or little, but if it puts a smile on my face, I will share it.
