you can choose to live in the front row or the third row...

You can choose to live your life with the joy of the front row or the solemness of the third row. The choice is yours. Author Unknown Words of wisdom from Salvage Savvy

(Photo: Grace Robertson)  Months ago I found this picture online with the caption "You can live your life with the joy and excitement of the women in the first row or the attitude of the women in the 3rd row" I was immediately drawn to it. The picture itself is not only adorable  but says so much about how we choose to make the most of each moment.  Emphasis on the word "choose".   4th row, they're not even paying attention, they're missing the whole point of the ride. 3rd row, they're in the moment but not really appreciating the opportunity. 2nd row, these girls are having fun. Yes for the most part they've got it. But, 1st row.......That's the row I want to be in!  These girls know how to have fun. These girls aren't upset that their dresses are flying up revealing their stockings and slips! They understand that's part of the ride, the reckless abandon of skirts flying high and hair in the wind knowing they look ridiculiously silly and stand the chance of losing a good hat in the process, they don't care.  They are choosing to enjoy the moment, encouraging each other with their roaring laughter to let it all go and just create a wonderful memory that they will share for years to come.  They are all on the same ride, going the same speed,  seeing the same sight, but each one is making a choice as to what type of experience and memory they are going to have. Do you remember that feeling you had the last time you laughed so hard you couldn't breath? Couldn't speak? Peed your pants? No? Then you are really missing out.  Some of my best memories have included one or all three of those moments and have all been with people I love the most. Yes, I am most definitely and grateful to be a front row kind of gal.  

Rollercoaster analogies aside, choosing between the first and third row is really a choice of living life to the fullest or self-imposing limitations.

  I don't know about you but I cannot look at this picture and not smile!   I also don't know if I've ever seen a more clear illustration than what is shown here. I LOVE THIS PICTURE and the graphic attached to it. Don't you?   Look at the progression that takes place from the first row to the third row. There's even a change from the first to the second row though not as dramatic as is shown in the third row.   LIFE IS MEANT TO BE LIVED!   I love roller coasters and I love to ride on the front row! Now, understand this - I am afraid of heights and the slow trip up to the top terrifies me along with the pause at the very top before the "release" which sends the roller coaster plummet straight down.   But I LOVE the thrill that comes once that release takes place. At that point my fear of heights is gone and the thrill of the ride has taken over! (Be sure to LISTEN to the podcast so that you can hear the happiness in my voice as I talk about this).   Now, once in a while I have agreed to ride in the middle of the line of roller coaster cars because someone that was too afraid to ride in the front wanted to ride the roller coaster with me. BORING! I could have almost had a tray of food and drink set up in that car and not spilled anything.   It was safe and a person could walk away bragging that they rode that roller coaster!   Well, technically, they did but they did not experience all that the roller coaster had to offer. The experience that they had when they "rode" the roller coaster was NOTHING compared to what those on the FRONT ROW of the roller coaster experienced.   Apply that to life, friend. You may say that you are "living" life but are you experiencing all that life has to offer?   You see this even connects to what we've discussed in the previous two articles.   Are you - WILL YOU - allow yourself to truly live life and experience all the wonders that are offered by life when you do so?   It's up to you but, friend, look at that picture one more time and ask yourself, "Do I want to live and laugh like the ladies in the front row or do I want to sit and chat like the ladies in the third row?"   C'mon....let's get on the FRONT ROW and for the the ride of a lifetime!   And, as you enjoy that ride, always be sure to...   "Make it an AWESOME day!

If there are no ups and downs in your life it means you are dead. Need to remember this when going through hard times

So true. Life is constantly learning lessons and then enjoying the fruits until you get bored with them!

Life is a roller coaster, but I find that I like merry go rounds better. Psalm 91:15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

There is no Repentance, than Self-realization. There is no Hope, than to Value One's Faith. There is no Happiness, than to Wish for Dear Ones Prosperity. There is no Peace, than to Whisper a heartful Prayer for Loved Ones Safety. Hazel Shirley Inspirational quotes: 1.When people talk ill about you,feel free to express your will. If they understand, it is no more a problem. If they misunderstand,it is their problem. 2.Do not grab much knowledge to hallucinate things to analyse anyone. Instead.....improve your wisdom to stay away from things,where your sincerity is not honored. 3.Always share your secrets only with a trust worthy friend.But keep certain private facts to yourself. 4.If time has given nothing in your Life.Then you sincerely didn't allot much time to think about your Life. 5.Moments of  joy are not created.They are designed by your positive thoughts. 6.When you are unable to forgive others mistake,your over confidence might ruin your self-confidence. Love quotes : 7.If there is nothing left to give in your life but love,give it wholeheartedly. 8.Rules are made to follow ; grief to swallow....; Love to sow and happiness to borrow. 9.If love is only a game for you to play,remember your own-self will not serve you when you get hurt someday. 10.Do not maintain a relationship, which would put you in shame ; instead help yourself to walk away from every blame.    11.Never argue with someone who justify  their own thoughts ; instead give them time to realize the facts. 12.True love will never wither to any weather.It has strength to win over every storm in life,yet remain with ultimate power.                                                                    ~ Hazel Shirley  ~ LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL.....!

Story of my life

Why Yes, I do frequently burst out in song..... and yes, now my kids find themselves doing it too...... :)

My family says I can turn anything into a song, so in turn I sometimes joke with them that I'm living in my own musical.

I do. I sing my own melodies and songs, complete with partial or whole lyrics. I even wake up often with music in my head, words and all. I'm always full of melody and music and I love to sing, but I am also quite shy about it.

I do. I sing my own melodies and songs, complete with partial or whole lyrics. I even wake up often with music in my head....

I am guilty if this quite often. Whatever situation I find myself in has at least a short snippet of some song/lyric. Luckily my family tolerates me!
