Monday Morning Inspiration

Image by .A.N.A.

Hi everyone! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was really nice. I actually got ambitious enough and in the mood to make an early Thanksgiving dinner (call me crazy) yesterday evening. Something about the Autumn weather makes me want to light Cinnamon candles, drink hot beverages, and......well, cook a turkey! lol. I hope your weekend was just what you needed it to be. I'd love to hear about it in the comment section below. :)

Here's some inspiration from Lance Armstrong (the famous cyclist diagnosed with Cancer) to carry you through your Monday:

"I take nothing for granted. I now have only GOOD days, or GREAT days."

This quote means alot to me after suffering with some health issues myself over the last several years. Each day becomes so much more precious, more value is placed on relationships, and the difficult things tend not to hold as much significance.

I appreciate all of you and hope your week is a good one! xo


  1. Hey, it's my first comment here. i found your blog about 3 days ago and I love it to the fullest! :)
    I found so many good inspiration and good energy. ;)
    I'm waiting for your next note.
    xo from Poland. :)

  2. I love that Quote too, Vicki!
    What you say is so true. I too have health problems that just make you realize how short life is and how much you really just have to treasure it as it is.
    I think that will be my new favorite quote from now on. I love it! Thanks for sharing it and thanks for your inpiring words.

    I love fall as well... I love the feeling it brings. =)

  3. From Poland, huh? That's great ! Thanks for your comment and kind words. :)

    Also, thanks for letting me use your photo and for sharing your thoughts, Ana. I thought I read in your Flickr. profile that you have some health issues, too. I'm glad this quote inspired you!

  4. Yea, from this Poland in Europe! ;)
    You welcome. And you can be sure, that I'll visit you more. :)

  5. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! There are certainly lots of things to be thankful for, including that little puppy face :)

  6. What a cute picture! I miss my puppy!

  7. What a great quote to live by. I've recently come through some hard times myself and have adopted the same philosophy. Photography definitely helps me capture some of those great moments and keeps my spirit fufilled. Thanks for all of your beautiful images. They definitely inspire me.


  8. Hi Beryl, I'm sorry you've gone through some hard times. I hope you're on the other side of them now. :) Do you have a flickr. account? Your photography name sounds so familiar. Thanks for your kind comments. Hang in there!

  9. what a precious photo and i love the bands of color at the top and bottom! so clever.
