I was out garage saleing the other morning and saw this sign taped to a street sign at the top of our street.
And I kind of had to laugh.
And here it is several weeks later and the sign is still there. I wonder what DVD it is...and more importantly, where it's at!

"Strength isn't something that you have, it's something that you find"
- Emma Smith (at least it is in the Emma Smith movie)
Now these are quotable quotes. I can see people putting these quotes on vinyl and slapping them on their wall. I can imagine them cross stitched and lovingly framed in the entryway to a home, put on a plaque, embossed on a pillow...whatever. They inspire, they are memorable, and so on.
I hope to say something quotable one day. Something that people will remember and recite and feel inspired by.
Bob Harper (the trainer on my weight loss video) had a similar dream to me. The only difference though is that he has the authority and popularity to make his dream a reality. And the quote that he has printed and framed in size ten billion font? The quote that he shows at the beginning of his video to inspire and motivate?Are you ready? You bet you are!" - Bob . Really? Really? I mean it's not even really a statement, more of a question really.
I've felt inspired though and have, since seeing Bob's quote, made some plaques of my own around the house.
In the bathroom : "Are you ready to remember to flush the toilet? You bet you are!" -Mom
And the kitchen : "Are you ready to eat all your broccoli? You bet you are!" -Mother
The Family Room: "Are you ready to put away all your stinking tiny sharp toys so I don't step on them anymore? You bet you are!" -Mom
Thanks for the inspiration Bob!
