Welcome to my world

"my goulash philosophy"©

No matter where you come from
or where you are going...
you are touched, prodded and pulled along,
by the one thing we all have in common...
human emotions.

If you are able to laugh,
others and at yourself,
life will be a whole lot easier. chh

The following words of wisdom, and the majority of my own goulash philosophy, was passed
on to me courtesy of my mother, Evelyn B. McAdoo MacKenzie    Thanks, Ma ... I love you.

Nothing is a mistake if it teaches you something.

Your only limitations are within your own mind.

It is what we give, unselfishly, of ourselves
that is the true measure of who we are.

Sometimes it is necessary to experience pain to
be able to appreciate life in the absence of pain.

Dreams can become a reality
if you believe in God and in yourself.
Never put the responsibility for your own
happiness onto someone else.
No one is born with prejudice. Always be true to yourself.
The only real treasures on earth are
the people you love who love you back
and genuine love really is unconditional.
Here is a test to find whether your
mission on earth is finished:
 If you're alive, it isn't.

Life is much too short to waste.
Strive to be happy!

Place your mouse on the X below and drag it to the O.
X Even though you can't see Him, GOD is there! O

Thanks for stopping by my homepage.
I'd love to hear what you think of my websites. 
you can e-mail me with your comments.
