    1. Isn't it true? I'd rather have a friend be real with me than to stab me in the back any day.

  2. Lovely reminders of living in the moment and how to make sure your glass is half full, not empty :) I love the last quote by Thomas Edison because I believe that failure is key to success... The only things I've been successful at are those that I failed at first time around (and maybe second too!) hehe.. that's where 3rd time lucky comes into play :) xx Love and hugs to you Cathy! xx

    1. Same here Angie! It takes a couple times to fail to get it just right - - and that's okay! Hope you're staying warm out there in the UK and many hugs from the US! :)

  3. Hello Cathy!
    Your makeover monday posts make for the perfect start of my weeks. And this post is truly amazing in so many ways as it ventures to define some of the deepest emotions, feelings and virtues experienced by human mind. Thanks for sharing these beautiful quotes.

    And thank you so very super much for making me the winner of your fantastic giveaway which I had been lusting after from the moment I participated for it. Ana's blog theme designs are definitely the most beautiful creations. And I have plans to rejuvenate my blog and make it more regular. So I would like to have your advice and suggestions since you're my inspiration when it comes to blogging.

    Also I extend a heartful invitation to you to make a guest post on my blog once the new theme gets into place. If you accept the invitation, we can discuss the details soon!

    Love you lots lots lots!

    1. Savvy! I can't fully express to you how appreciative and grateful I am of your kind words. I'm still taken back even after replying to this a few days after..I can't wait to see the new layout of your blog and have been anxious to read more! Although I consider myself the opposite of a blogging expert, I may write a little bit about my tips as a new blogger :)

      I would love to guest post on Life Palettes. Just let me know when!

      Much love to you Savvy and will hear from you soon!

    2. I'll get to rejuvenating my blog in the beginning of December. Let's hope the new layout is installed by then. And thanks for accepting my invitation. Am sure the readers would benefit immensely from your post and it will be a complete honor for me to have you guest post on my blog.
