Change is in the air...

This has been a constant theme for the past couple of months for me. First, all the layouts, altered projects etc. for the DT have to be on the theme of change. Then the mb goes high tech and less intimate, and now trying to make up our minds to open a store/not open a store, return to a work week plus/ or continue our leisurely retirement? Egads.

I've decided to post a short series of quotes this week from some I downloaded from the internet to use on a layout. I'd love to hear your reactions to these and your comments...thanks to all who play.

Monday quote: "We did not change as we grew older; we became more clearly ourselves" Lynn Hall

Good quote. I think it is very true that we grow into what we are meant to be. Also that we tend to strip away the layers that we put on ourselves when we are young, whether to "fit in" or to get ahead in some way. An interesting way to look at it anyway.

I agree. There's something about getting older that you realize that what you really want is what it's about. I don't mean that in a selfish material way, but in a I don't have to fit in to be a good person way.
We realize life is not about the competetion, keeping up with the Jones', but just being ourselves and enjoying the roses. Not getting ourselves all tied up in a knot over things out of our control. Life goes on anyway.
Great Quote.

Oh I so agree. That quote is very true. I think as we get older we not only realize who we are but what we are and what we stand for. I have learned so much about ME the past few years. We learn what is really important to us, who is really important in our lives, we learn to be more true to ourselves and not worry what others think. I love this quote! Great pick Jules!

Hi Jules!!

Sometimes change is good, sometimes not so good! I think its weird that some people actually like get defensive because some people dont like the new MB and want to leave, why would they care anyway?

I like the quote, I like who I am now better then who I was.

See ya around!! janet
