CARDS WE HOLD, CARDS WE PLAY


IMG_1307

The truth of this message is one that is fully realized by the tortoise that could. It's the tortoise's ability to not give up and play well the hand he has been dealt to ultimately be successful, that inspires me to no end. Throughout history, we've seen those who are given a good hand but don't appreciate it and don't use it well. And we've seen those who have not such a good hand but never give up and figure out how to beat the odds. The pen is mightier than the sword, the strongest weapon is patience, you gotta have faith, and you must never give up. No matter what.

Wise words to live by...

Tenacity! Very true - so important to remember...

That's really cool.

I'm having a giveaway on both my art and sewing blogs. And my 9 year old daughter is having one on her sewing blog, www.sewingsister.blogspot.com . Hope you'll stop by.

I love your poker analogy! True, indeed. By the way, I'll be playing this weekend in Atlantic City - I'll let you know how I do!

I do believe in tenacity. But I also believe in the ability to give up (or give in) gracefully. Maybe it's knowing when to quit, more than giving up. There is a time for all of it.

Oh wow. That is so, so true.
Great saying, after all it is all in the way we play

Yes, making the most of what you have especially if it's a meager hand inspires me to no end as well. And if you succeed in making it, it's important to remember to share your good fortune with others.
