Sunday Tippets, Damsel Style

Go to fullsize imageA new weekly post to give a little lift for the upcoming week...Maybe a little fishy at times...but for the most part, just a few words of wisdom to tip off your week and getting it kick-started!

" What others think of you does not matter, what you think of yourself does. Think positive. Positive thinking will equal in positive results."  Written in 2011 by Joan Shaw --- Canada

RD:  I believe in P.M.A. (Positive Mental Attitude)  If I go out saying that I'm going to catch a fish, I usually do...On the other had, if I look at it with a negative spin and stay in that funk...well...I just end up getting frustrated more.

"Stop looking at what's wrong, and instead start looking at what's right about yourself, others, or any situation in general. Nothing or nobody will ever be perfect, so why not just enjoy it to the fullest? Life is too short and time flies. Make an effort to see the beauty in everything before it's too late."  Written in 2011 by Nubia J. --- Submitted by N. Jara ---

RD: It's important for us to give ourselves a break once in awhile...I know that I'm far from perfect in my fly fishing's a day to day learning experience.  Even on a skunk of a day...I can enjoy the beauty of the river and reflect on my week ahead.

RD:  Success is really not about your worldly wealth...It's really about how many people you affected for the good...and how you treat others like you would want to be treated.  Hey, I think that I've been in this fishing "honey- hole" long enough, why not move on down and let someone else have a turn... 

                   HAVE A GREAT WEEK ! ... <"(((((><<                     


  1. I did't sleep well, so I got up early to check out my favorite blogs. For the sake of Owl and I who have sleep disorders (among other disorders) please install a dimmer switch. Seriously, I like the new look and the content as usual is top notch.

  2. Inspiration on a chilly Sunday. THANKS!!

  3. Great Advice anyday of the week--it's like when you are fishing with a fly you know is going to get a hit, why because you beleive in yourself to make the fly act natural, believe in the fly to produce, and most of all know you are going to catch a fish, no matter what--hope all this makes sense. Really like your blog not to complicated, and very informative, thanks for sharing

  4. Thanks everyone! Hope you have a great week...

  5. What a positive post. I love it! Especially the second tidbit. True happiness starts with loving yourself! Once you do that, beauty appears all around you.
