    This is so true. We need to try things to move forward and part of the learnings are the mistakes we make while doing it. 🙂

  2. Ain't that the truth! There are so many people who just cruise thru life and never make an impact on anything because they prefer not to "rock the boat" or "make waves." Well … my life has been full of waves and rocking boats but I like it that way! At least it means I'm doing something and trying to make a positive difference in the world and my environment.

    P.S. Glad the cyberbugs are gone this week and I was able to access your site again. 🙂

  3. Geek Girl says:

    I made some changes to the site that I hope may address the problems you were having. Fingers crossed…

    KUDOS to you for trying to make a difference! Think of what the world would be like if we all tried to make a difference. 🙂

    • Yay, Cheryl! The changes you made to the site must have worked … as I'm back again … no problem. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

      Yes, being bold and trying to make a difference does ruffle some feathers from time to time, but I try not to let the naysayers bother me. I know my intentions are good and that my ego is not my motivator. Cheers!

    This so true and these days I think it applies to those that tell us what to do but don't take action themselves.

  5. Geek Girl says:

    I agree. 🙂

  6. Spot on Cheryl!

    Susan I agree completely with you about people telling us what to do but don't takie action themselves.

    I am that person that holds back though. Usually I eventually try… but it is still hard to lookk at things as a learning experience sometimes. Good quote!

    • Geek Girl says:

      I guess it's like having to face the fact that not everyone is going to like you. You try to make friends and you soon learn which ones are keepers. If you don't try, then you have no friends. 🙂

  8. Geek Girl says:

    I agree with both of you!

    And yet…not doing anything is a mistake in itself. I say that because my husband doesn't do anything – yet he makes a lot of mistakes in my book, ha, ha, ha!

    LOL You are too funny. 🙂
