This is both a follow-up blog, and a blog to record the beginnings of what will be an upcoming blogging project @ My Daily Mooosings in the Netherlands, which will start in March.

If you have missed it, here is the first entry to the What Works Wonders blog series:

What Works Wonders: Wake UP January!

After you've read the previous blog, you will have a clearer idea what this series is about. :)

In brief, it is about how I keep a positive attitude in spite of challenging and difficutl circumstances.

I'm taking a week off from the internet, and before I do, I wanted to leave you a new installment to this series.

For February, my top 5 quotes, which represent  how I conquer different kinds of fear:

  1. A quote, which starts & structure each of my day courageously:

    “Do one thing every day that scares you.”
    Eleanor Roosevelt
  2.  A quote, which empowers me to say, share, and  write about how I think and feel about different things in life.

    “Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” ― Virginia Woolf
  3. A quote, which reminds me of the power behind a smile.

    “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
    Thích Nhất Hạnh
  4. A quote, which strengthens my sense of individuality.

    “I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
    Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
  5. A quote, which always shakes me out of complacency.

    If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.”
    Frank Zappa

When I come back online in March, I will be attempting another shot at the 365 blogging project before I take a year off the internet. I've been blogging since 2006, and so far, I've only successfully done a 365 project once.

More details about this adventure, when I come back in March!
