Eli from the blog, Coach Daddy nominated me for a quote challenge and the rules are:

  1.  Three One days
  2.  Three quotes
  3.  Three nominees each day

Humans often think that cats spent 95 percent of their time sleeping and relaxing and the other 5 percent eating and stretching/scratching. But that is far from the truth. Cats have ups and downs in life too.  And for the longest time, the following quote would best describe my life.

Quote # 1

“It’s all messy.  The hair.  The bed.  The words.  The heart. Life …” –William Leal

Quote # 2

“In the books of life, the answers aren’t in the back.” – Charles Schulz

My life’s perspective has since changed and I now live by the following quote.

Quote # 3

“Fear less, hope more; eat less; chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.”Swedish Proverb
