things that make you go hmmm...

is this where we're headed? creepy...

it's amazing how much we try to control the things we can't change, but completely ignore those that we can..

Watch your thoughts; they become your words.
Watch your words; they become your
actions.
Watch your actions; they become your
habits.
Watch your habits; they become your
character.
Watch your character for it will become your
destiny.

I saw the pizza link it is funny. Great quote I love it, can't be more true. I do have to pay attention to the things I can control more than the things I can't. Very astute quote that needs more attention.

And sometimes just let yourself go with the flow... too much watching out for waht you are capable of and you curb yourself to the point of frustration!

genendy:
not funny? :)

frumgirl:
unless going with flow has gotten you in trouble once too many..

smb:
i agree

david:
im not sure what that means, but if i understand correctly, i'd say.. actions may be what count, but those only come as a result of the rest..

lakewood venter:
yup, it is

frumgirl:
its much easier to manage our fears by controlling others.. sad.. and scary

The link was funny, was it supposed to be serious? The quote wasn't funny that was just a smart saying that we need to pay more attention to.

about your little poem of events, yes! everthing leads to something else. so crazy! Thats the whole concept of mukzah. You dont do one so it does not lead to the next.
