I came across this site with Quotes for Kids by Kids.

Some of the quotes are really cute and tells a lot of how and what kids are thinking. I like these few Quotes for Kids about Moms. :)

"If mom's not  happy, nobody's happy"

"If mom's asleep, don't wake her up!"

"If mom says no, she means it. If dad says no, he means maybe"

"No matter what I do, my mom can always tell when I'm lying"

"When mom is mad at dad, don't let her brush your hair"

Funny, cute and smart kids. I think they got it all right. For more funny Quotes for Kids like this, visit

Are you a procrastinator? Do you keep on procrastinating? Do you keep on putting off the things you need to do? Procrastination is a bad habit and it has a snowball effect. Very soon, you will start feeling overwhelmed especially if the thing you are procrastinating happens to be in your to do list.

I guess it all boils down to how much you want to do that something. I would never procrastinate when it comes to blogging. I walk around with ideas for blog posts in my head. As soon as I am able to get to a computer, my blog posts would all pour out from my head onto the keyboard and transferred on the computer screen.

However, when it comes to exercise, which is so much more important and should therefore be the top of my priorities, I keep on procrastinating. I guess to stop procrastinating, one has to prioritize, create schedules and follow it strictly. Self discipline is very important in order to carry this out.

Here are some procrastination quotes I want to remember to help me get out of this bad habit.
"If you want to make an easy job seem mighty hard, just keep putting off doing it."
~Olin Miller”
"Procrastination is something best put off until tomorrow."
~Gerald Vaughan
"Whilst we deliberate how to begin a thing, it grows too late to begin it."

Be Happy and Make Others Happy

Today I added a Quotes Widget on this blog.

Bloggers who love quotes will love this one. It is a quotes widget for your blog or website. The above quote and image is an example of what you get in the quotes widget. There are plenty of sites offering free blogger or wordpress widgets with quotes for your blog but I like this one because it is colorful. Some of the sites offer text quote widgets. This one includes colorful images.

You can customize the widget by changing the size to fit your blog. Mine is 210 by 210. I guess I will keep this Quotes Widget for a while until I find something better.

Bloggers who love quotes may also like these Quotes for Bloggers about Blogging.

Happy Blogging!

Do you like my motivational poster? I created it from this website called Clip Your Photos. There are many Make Your Own Poster sites. I like this one because it is simple to use and does not require me to register. I am quite often lazy to register even for free because it will leave a trail of my email information all over the web for services which I may only use occasionally.

You can customize your Motivational Poster by putting in your own words as I did. You can choose the color and font type. Some Make your own motivational poster sites allow you to print your own customized motivational poster after you're done.

I just like to paste mine on my own blog because my digital camera isn't all that great and my image is a bit blur as you can see. It wouldn't make a nice motivational poster for hanging on the wall in my home though it looks lovely here on my blog and I do feel quite proud about it. Proud about selecting the right photo and proud about adding in the right words even if the words may sound a little bit cliched. I think the saying and the image is perfect. It looks great. Accept for the slightly blurry image. I have got a sharper image result in some other Create your own Motivational Poster sites but perhaps my picture is not clear enough to begin with.

There may be other Create Your Own Motivational Poster websites which offer much more customization and better photo results, but for me, this basic and simple one will do because I don't want to print it. I just want something quick and easy that will generate a code for me to copy and paste on my blog.

Now about my quote:

There is beauty all around, all you need to do is look.

Although my picture is that of a scenery, in this case, man-made and not nature. I usually like to associate quotes and sayings with peaceful pictures of nature scenes. This picture is the one I took when I visited i-City, Shah Alam, Malaysia. There can be beauty in things that are man-made too.

Similarly, I think this quote applies to people too. There are all sorts of people in this world. Some are quiet. Some are loud and aggressive but if you look harder and closer, you may sometimes find a warm core or center in these personalities. 

The saying "Never Judge a Book by Its Cover" comes to mind. Sometimes people behave in certain ways to mask or hide their own insecurities and fears but if you look harder and get to know the person more, you may just find that there is beauty in the person. All you need to do is look.
