From My Journal

My daughter found an old journal of mine from college and I'm going to throw it away. I'm not a great journaler to begin with and it's only half full and that covers 4 years! There is a lot of depressing stuff in there and who needs to be reminded of the bad stuff. But before I do trash it, I wanted to share some of the quotes and positive things I collected, so these will be posted here sporadically over time. I love this first one, although I didn't write down where I got it.

Who's Job Is It?
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

I can totally relate to old journals like these! And to think at one point I thought I'd show them to my children! :)
