Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

1-1-11

Christmas was a time to reflect on 2010. Now that it's the new year, it's the perfect time to look forward to the year that will be.

Funny thing though, I gave up making new year's resolutions a long time ago.

I've learned that while planning is great, knowing when to just let things unfold has its own merits. And often, the universe has a way of unfolding that not only will surprise you but delight you as well. It is not about changing the world; rather, it is changing your mindset. It's not about bending the world to your will, but broadening your mind to the world--and to a world of possibilities. It is not about resignation but more of acceptance (yes Virginia, there is a world of difference between the two).

May the new year be the source of happiness and joy to us all.

Can you please explain,or maybe write a blog entry about, the difference between acceptance and resignation? Thanks.
