It’s been a while since I’ve shared some wordy wisdom but I ran across this last week and couldn’t resist. Normally I know exactly where each quote came from, who said it, its context and some of its backstory. This quote however, is a complete mystery. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to it. It could have come from a celebrity or from an unemployed middle-aged man from the 195o’s. Who knows. I relate to it either way. I’ve come face to face with both ends of this spectrum. Do I currently have everything? Hell no but I do feel very rich, very full and extremely fortunate. It is so easy to give up before you reach that peak and it is so easy to take that peak for granted once it’s been achieved. I vow to do my best to embrace the world around me, do my best to help others, actively listen and always remain thankful. Grace, humanity, humility and humbleness. If those are gone, you’ve then lost your everything.

The word-wise web is a new addition to the {jcp} blog and a way for me to share my daily inspirations with you.  I put great value on vocabulary and find that the web is an incredibly rich resource for discovering those wordy bits of wisdoms. In fact, I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to finding these.  So stay tuned for more and if you have any words of wisdom that you love, pray do tell!

When’s the last time you tried a completely new experience?

How many times have you said to yourself “I want to try that…?” And then put it off, for a better day, better weather, better timing, better mood, better excuse. Guilty. As. Charged. I love routine, cherish it but sometimes I recognize that I’m playing it a little too safe. I then search for ways to kick my adrenaline in the A*! Registering for the LA Marathon was one of those ways (which is still completely scary to me).  So I dare you, try something new today, test your boundaries and find out what you’re capable of. It doesn’t have to be huge, just new. Make the jump! Since today is Friday, it’s a good time to start. You have the entire weekend… jump!  And enjoy the view.

And then tell me about it! I’d love to hear.

It sure seems like a mighty long time.

That’s the trouble with never.

When was the last time

you did something for the first time?” -Van Halen

This one is just for fun, ripe with sarcastic wit and needs no explanation. When I first saw it, I burst out in laughter. It is definitely one of my pet peeves, to see how so many still can’t seem to wrap their tongues around the subtle differences in the spelling of your. Those who do, god bless you….
