OPTIMISM

Β 

If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be.
John Heywood

I’m trying my best to keep up with everyone’s posts, please be patient with me …

    1. theonlycin says:

      Just a little unsettled by being back in the business world, this too will pass πŸ™‚ Thanks for your care, Doc.

  2. being busy plays havoc with blogging, doesn’t it?

  3. deepercolors says:

    I sure hope that’s true. :-\

  4. gospelwriter says:

    Love the Heywood quote – I’m beginning to think there’s a lot of truth to what he says, I’ve been experimenting with it for a while. Hope your day goes smoothly…

  7. slpmartin says:

    I’ve never known how you’ve managed so many things at one time…I’m off to bed to read a book a friend has sent me…Cheers my friend!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I hope the book rocks your boat πŸ™‚

  8. colonialist says:

    Methinks this is a case where a little less experience is a good thing! πŸ™‚

    1. theonlycin says:

      Think you’ve hit the nail on the head πŸ™‚

  9. I’m all for developing latent forces within. Sounds jolly useful.
    Hope work is good. Forming, storming, norming, as Bruce Truckman would say.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I do like Mr Truckman πŸ˜€

  10. Tandy says:

    always better to be the optimist πŸ™‚

  11. souldipper says:

    May it pass kindly!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thank you, Amy πŸ™‚

  12. nursemyra says:

    Blogging is a full time job and something’s gotta give. Usually it’s my social life

    1. theonlycin says:

      Social life? What’s that? πŸ˜‰

  13. Gotta love your optimistic attitude, nothing like a lovely cold drink of wine too. Cheers my friend, sounds like things are stretching you at the moment. Love the quote too πŸ™‚

    1. theonlycin says:

      Cheers, Cheffie πŸ™‚

  14. Don’t beat yourself up about it. πŸ™‚
    And now for some useless information:
    There is a bar on the beach here in Mauritius called The Beach House and it is owned by ex South African rugby player Kabous van der Westhuizen. He too sells the wine.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Ah, good old Kabous, not the prettiest fella, now is he? *grin*

  15. Lovely photo and quotation. I believe I must be pretty vigorous and happy! Hope you are ok, Cindy?
    Sunshine xx

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’m all good, thanks Sunshine πŸ™‚

  16. You know what- you are awfully good at photographing wine!!!
    Very difficult to be addicted to wordpress and still have to work hey.
    xx

    1. theonlycin says:

      Why thank you, bokkie, I am working on getting to know my subject matter πŸ˜‰

  17. Tilly Bud says:

    I love this quote. And the wine must help πŸ™‚

    1. theonlycin says:

      As it does, indeed, Tilly πŸ™‚

  18. klrs09 says:

    Good morning. I so appreciate your visits — wish I was able to get around to your blog more than I do — it’s always such a lovely visit. The picture of that wine on the table. . . makes me long for summer. Enjoy your day, Cindy.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Kathy, keep warm, my friend πŸ™‚

  19. Madmom says:

    Hope you feel settled soon, Cindy.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Madmom, probably just be settled in when the contract ends 😦

  20. Artswebshow says:

    That’s a great statement.
    Kind of like ‘strength through adversity’
    Optimism sure does have its uses πŸ˜€

    1. theonlycin says:

      Damn right you are, Sir πŸ™‚

  21. nrhatch says:

    I like the photo as much (if not more) than the quote.
    Wine + the beach house = perfect for pausing and reflecting.

    Cheers, Cin ~ now when you say TGIF, you will really mean it!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yep, and on the other days I just dream about the beach house πŸ˜‰

  22. Blessings to you, Cindy. I can see where having a popular blog could become impossible to keep up with the way we would like. Don’t become a slave to it. Other bloggers understand. We don’t all have the same amount of time to devote to blogging. πŸ™‚ Balance…

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Carol, you’re very kind πŸ™‚ xxx

  23. I optimistically await any comment or reply I am ever privileged to receive from you. Please feel no pressure to do this – only that inward pressure self-generated that compels you to respond to my brilliant blog posts and witty comments and replies. πŸ˜€

    Relax, Cin! Meditate and quit worrying about all this stuff. What should get done, will get done – the rest is just so much stuff and extraneous matter! XOXO Paula

    1. theonlycin says:

      Your comments, too, are rather brillaint πŸ˜€ xxx

  24. grandawn says:

    It’s too bad that we are required to focus on other things besides writing/blogging, isn’t it?!?!? I know the feeling, my dear. 😦

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s darn frustrating πŸ˜‰

  25. buttercup600 says:

    I share your sentiment here my friend, I find it hard these days to do it all…hopefully it will all balance out. Mwah oxo

  26. Cindy, enjoyed my visit here much. Don’t you dare try to respond to all my little chit-chat. Have a geat day … Thanks for all the chuckles. Hugs! πŸ™‚
