Word of the Day: Obstreperous

I’ve been reading a lot lately. I love reading and I love the library. So many books. So little time. I’m trying to be a little more careful when reading in that I am actually taking the time to learn new vocabulary and look up words. Why not? So, here’s my word of the day:

A crowd leaves the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU station ...

A crowd leaves the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU station on the Washington Metro on July 4, 2006. The crowd behaves like a granular fluid, and people, having the same aim, are more confined than they would normally choose to be. This induces frustration and loss of manners, possibly up to putting individuals into jeopardy. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)



It means noisy and difficult to control (according to a Google search of the word)

So great! One new word for my vocabulary and for yours!!!

I think I also heard this on the trailer for Iron Lady (the movie comes out in April on DVD)…. Margaret Thatcher may have also said this!

The Muppets Never Cease To Inspire Me

I saw this on a billboard tonight and looked it up as soon as I got home (I’m a sucker for Kermit). Anything Muppet related grabs my attention (I was so excited to see the Muppet Movie this year with my best friend and we had such a great time watching it)! The “live your dreams” mantra always inspires me to do just that. I could always use a reminder.

Turns out it’s advertising an inspirational website called Here’s an advertisement dedicated to a place to find inspiration and also a place to record personal stories of inspiration and read ones of other people. What a great concept and what an awesome ad. It’s not an ad for what we don’t have or what we should want but for discovering who we are, what makes us tick, and how we can achieve it.  I LOVE it. Check it out!

Here’s a link to Muppet inspired nails (for the movie of course). I’m also a big fan of these:

So excited for The Hunger Games movie to come out. I haven’t read the book yet but I plan on reading it after the movie so that I’ll enjoy the movie more. Hopefully the movie will be good! Hopefully I’ll know by Friday (comes out on Thursday). Woot woot! Anyways, even though I haven’t read the book, I know a lot about it (thanks to friends…although not enough to spoil anything). In the meantime, while waiting for the movie to come out already (it’s all I hear about in the press moviewise lately), I really enjoyed this article and wanted to share.

Quote of the Day: On Reality

Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Don Miguel Ruiz

This is SO true!!! It’s very hard to do because  we often are re-active to society and forget ourselves and the big picture of life. Often the way people treat you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. To not take anything personally is extremely difficult but to remember to do it is also very important.

Sometimes the biggest fight we can win in our lives is the battle with ourselves. If we work on ourselves and reflect inwardly and ask ourselves what is really going on in any situation I think that we will be more successful in life.
