WHAT NEW STORIES ARE YOU READY TO WRITE?
WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>
Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have a unique ability to change the way we feel about life and can change our thinking.
They are so interesting, challenging, and essential on our path to joy, happiness, and finding ways to inspire ourselves and others.
Inspirational quotes and ideas give us a quick and timely burst of wisdom to get our focus back, offering the inspiration needed for the day or occasion.
I hope to inspire you with my words.
Words have power.
Are you accomplishing what you want before your eventual death?
At any age, you can (and should) make changes to make your life better.
How you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible, determines everything in your life, and it all derives from your quality of thinking.
Just as positive words can make someone smile, and a well-timed amusing quote can make someone laugh, your thoughts react to the world in real time. You have this control!
You have complete control over only one thing in the universe — Your Thinking —and that’s where motivational quotes come in!
To keep your motivation, you have to use each day as an opportunity to improve and get closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with your busy schedule—next to impossible. But you can do it!
Self-talk is so essential—THINK RIGHT!
Motivational words, yes, they are just words.
But they are positive words; they will keep you on track.
Don’t forget that you are only as young as the last time you changed your mind!
Keep your thoughts and self-talk fun and productive, and always reach for more advancement.
REMEMBER, VERY LITTLE IS NEEDED TO MAKE A GREAT LIFE.
THE POSITIVE QUOTES
Positive and inspiring quotes are like beams of sunshine on a cloudy day. They inject optimism into our thoughts, brighten our mood, and help us focus on the good in life. They remind us that even in the face of adversity, we can see the silver lining and embrace a positive attitude.
In a world filled with challenges and indecisiveness, the power of inspirational quotes cannot be exaggerated. These pearls of wisdom uniquely uplift our spirits, can spark positive change, and fuel our motivation often when we need it most.

MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
Each week goes by so quickly, don’t you think?
Time is going faster all the time, it seems.
Do you keep track of what you do each day?
Do this for a few weeks, and you will see your time differently.
10/21–As I’ve written before, we collect rainwater to drink, bathe, and clean with. One roof does not have gutters, and we can collect rainwater from this roof after I put it on a gutter system. I’ve placed a 275-gallon tote on the ground to save the water. This, surprisingly, should fill up quickly with rainwater.
I’ve already put up a 55-galloon and a 100-galloon collector for rainwater. We use this water to give water to the plants and clean things. I had bought some filters to clean the water to be able to drink it, but I never got it going right.
I need to install gutters and a downspout to collect the H2O. I’ve never installed gutters, so a learning experience is in front of me. When I first lived here with Beth, I climbed a ladder several times to put on gutter guards on all the gutters to keep the leaves and such out of the channels.
Are you collecting rainwater? If not, it’s time to start. With the world changes, we can’t depend on the government as much and must become more self-sufficient. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need help; I will gladly assist.
10/22–With all the big trees here, many leaves have landed on the grounds in this area. Sorting the leaves, I pulled out broken branches to use in the fire in the future. With a forest behind us, I deposited the leaves where they will eventually break down, and I will use the compost later in my gardens.
I have seen many people raking leaves. In houses I have lived at, I just raked the leaves onto the lawn and used a lawnmower to pick up and chop the leaves. The leaves were broken down even more by going through the mower before going into the composter.
In our house and yard, I always look for ways to improve things. Do you do the same where you live or how you live your life? You can continually improve things and yourself. Always keep looking for ways to enhance your living situation and your life.
10/23–hmm, what did I do today?
10/24–Beth and I never exchanged wedding rings in our marriage. She had picked up some cheap bands, which worked well until now. I wanted to give something special, and it finally happened.
Other words that come to mind for me >>
Words I try and emulate.
By the way, that was the first time I ever used the word–emulate. I was trying to think of what to use, and this word entered my mind. I had to use a dictionary to see that I was using the word correctly. How about you? How often do you use a new word you have not used before?
I had a tooth in the lower front of my teeth that broke; one big piece came out. I thought that a part of me (the tooth) would be worth more than any diamond–since I grew it. I will get an inserted tooth in this space and still have a great smile.
Alligators and Sharks can regrow teeth. Why can’t humans?
Frank, the husband of the name, “Lee”’s Jewelry, put the tooth on a gold ring band, and it turned out great. Lee and Beth have been friends for years.
Beth loves her new ring.
Yes, she has part of me now.
Talk about a great wedding ring!
Beth said, funny, after I gave the ring to her. >>
“Now I’m going to have to take the ring to a dentist annually for a check-up.”
10/25–There was a bee-bug that liked me. She just hovered around my head; interesting, yes.
Beth found a beautiful fungus that looked quite pretty. You will see a photo.
10/26–I took Beth’s car down to align the wheels. I was there for hours, as they discovered things wrong with the van. They made a list, and we will go to https://jiminy-fixit.com/ for repairs.
New baby bunnies–again.
At Lows today, I saw a guy trying to load 4×8 sheets of plywood. I’ve done that before and know how difficult it is. He appreciated my help.
10/27–Jimmy found that we only needed a few things; happy about that I am.
