I have always thought of dying as quite morbid but well aparently there are some ways where it nearly doesn’t sound so bad…

And some people will actually experience death more than once…. I am refering to Derek Jones who died 31 times!!


Writing is the most fun you can have by yourself!Terry Pratchett

I am not sure that I agree, but my partner is sure glad that that is what Pratchett thinks. Besides which, makes my life easier as come Christmas I always have my partner’s stocking present chosen. Pratchett’s latest book of course!


“The most wasted of all? days is one without laughter”. E E. Cummings

That is so true. Laughter is after all the best medicine. Yet if you smile at a stranger, they are most likely to scowl at you as though you are throwing daggers at them. Yet a simple smile can lift that heavy feeling and make the world feel a better place. Smiling is tantamount to the sun shining upon you.

Go on, I know it has been a while since you smiled, but stretch your mouth so it spreads across your face. That’s it… you are doing it!! 🙂 Doesn’t that feel good?

Je Ne Regrette Rien

“Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable”. Sydney J. Harris

I must say I really agree with Sydney J. Harris because regret is the worst sin of all. I learnt very quickly to try to never regret anything. And that must be one of the best decisions I have even made. It taught me to stop regretting mistakes and enjoy living for the moment. And as a result I have been able find opportunity where I have least expected.

A rather unusual positive thought for Carper Diem…. but then we all have our good days!
