Oh Darling: Thoughtful Thursday

Today’s thought is that you are darling. You are fierce. You are important. Oh darling you are lovely. Just be you, because you are really good at it!

Is it just me, or does everyone just love the word darling? Hearing it makes me feel like I am in Pride and Prejudice  (my favorite chick-flick just so you know) or something. That is never a bad thing, because who is not head over heals for Mr. Darcy? Anyway, here is a little print out so you will know that you are darling even when you are by yourself. Oh darling

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!


 If you haven’t seen Pride and Prejudice, watch it! Oh darling, it is the best 😉

Fear of Failure

I was recently asked the question: “What would you do in the next five years if you knew you could not fail?” This question deals more with fear than with success. This made me think; is fear really that debilitating? Are we so afraid of failing that we don’t pursue the things that we so dream of doing? Each one of us limits ourselves with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of judgment, fear of disappointment. Without this fear we would be willing to try nearly anything. What would you do if you knew you could not fail? I hope that you would do exactly what you are doing. I hope that we can conquer this fear of failure and follow out dreams, because really what can stop us?

Fear of Failure from whirlwhim.com

Even if you were to fail, what would be the price. Does it hurt more to fail than it does to regret not taking a chance. Isn’t the journey of following a whim better than coming to the realization of the things you could have done, the experiences you could have had, and the dreams you could have made a reality. We all fail, but what is life without disappointment? What is life without heartache? It is our failures that make our successes so brilliant.

Claude Monet: Thoughtful Thursday


Claude Monet Quote @ whirlwhim.com

I am completely in love with Claude Monet. You may have heard of him, he was a artist in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. He painted in the impressionism style, which is probably why I love his art so much. Some of his more famous works are his Waterlilies and Impression Sunrise. His style was very new and different from the tradition at his time. He painted light rather than objects. I love his work and this quote by him. This quote sums up my relationship with flowers! Feel free to make a print out. Have a great Thursday!

Abigail Adams: Thoughtful Thursday


This is currently my favorite quote. Feel free to print it out.Abigail Adams QuoteThis means that difficulties and trials in our lives help build us into better people. Challenges mold our minds, and give us skills and qualities that we would not develop without going through rough times. By doing difficult things and working hard toward lofty goals, we learn and grow. Hope you are able to learn from your life’s challenges and you are able to become better, more thoughtful, kinder, stronger, and happier people.


** Abigail Adams wrote this in a letter to her son John Quincy Adams in 1780.
