Monday's Mixed Ink

Flickr link

If at first you don't succeed....

You can cry
Throw a fit
Call people names
Tear something up
Eat chocolate
Pout








But afterwards, make sure you try, try again.

Because real failure is falling and never getting up again.

Have a PROSPEROUS week, beautiful guys and dolls.

March 1, I'm having an INK PARTY. Want to join? Good things are happening this weekend:)

    1. Right. Failure is the the omission of expected or required action. Falling happens. It's not getting back up and trying again that is regarded as failure:)

  2. I've yet to read a success story that doesn't start out with failure, usually multiple failures.

    A party? You are the most energetic person!

  3. Ooo! A party :)
    Lol! Today's one of those days I've thought about smashing my tea cup against the floor or diving into a huge chocolate buffet. But I think we all have those - and still don't give up ;)

    1. You are o a roll! Sometimes, though, I think editing is harder to do than the actual writing. Sometimes...

    2. Hey! I like dinosaurs! Is it too late to change my avatar? ;)

    3. Avatar? You mean I'm not actually a weird orange line with a gray arrow around it?

      Ok seriously guys, how do I update my avatar so I'm no longer the twisty arrow? :). I show up some places right, and then others like I do here...
