I stayed up past midnight last night.

Yes, yes I did.

shannonmidnightGOOD LORD CAN YOU SEE ALL THE CHAMPAGNE IN MY EYES??

And I drank.  A lot.

Yep, I sure did.

AND I AM SO STUPID.

Cause these babies get up EARLY and do not CARE that mommy is tired and hung over.  Damn it.

Today, I read on another blog, a very, very moving thought process (thanks Eric).  I too have felt, quite a lot lately, that there are not many ‘good’ people in this world….or just a ‘what’s the point’ kind of feeling.  Facebook, social media, the news, and strangers on the streets scare me.  There is so much ugly.  I know, I know, there is a whole hell of a lot of beauty too, but sometimes I get caught up in the ugly.  And this made me stop.  And prepare my heart.  For an ANYWAY kind of 2013.

…with lots of wine.  Just sayin’…..

Cheers and love and ANYWAY for 2013!

ANYWAY

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot
down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
