I wish I could but there you go, I would love to have a gentle and quiet spirit all of the time, but then I get out of bed. :) Nice thoughts.

I think even if you did, said, or were nothing, someone would still find fault. So hey! Do what you feel is right and accept the criticism.

What is life if we aren't teetering on the edge of balance? I love this sentiment, which comes as no surprise given how deeply intertwined Aristotle was in my early dreams of becoming a journalist.

I'd rather do, be and say and be criticized than twittle my fingers and do nothing. Without criticism, constructive criticism that is, how would I grow as an individual?

Have a wonderful weekend Dawn... I'm off to do say and be! lol
