June 25, is National Strawberry Parfait Day & Global Beatles Day

Quote of the Day
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
John Lennon

Closing Quote
“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”
George Harrison

WOW! What do you think of that closing quote? Powerful, speechless or what?

Anyways; “Live every day as happy as you can and enjoy every moment and every day to the fullest of what tomorrow may bring.”
