Megan always enlightens her readers with posts representing the most unusual to the most inspiring! She features a blog about art and design, tutorials and creativity.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Life is filled with messages
Cued with the rising of the sun
Veiled in the shadows of twilight
Waiting for just the right moment
To be captured and remembered
Rather than lost within the blink of an eye

Dare to Dream!

Dare to Dream! | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

"Dare to dream the impossible for it too may one day be possible! Life is no life at all without dreams... Dream a little, live a little - Live a little, dream a lot - dream a lot, live a lot - your choice!"

Sharla Shults's insight:

Life is a trail of tears, the will to cope
A mountain of discomfort based on hope
It is a highway of dreams, a road very demanding
Out of balance at times, but not without understanding

Touch of Catnip

Touch of Catnip | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

"Meet Shiva. His unusual name was bestowed upon him by our daughter, Nicole, when she was studying marketing and design at the University of Florida (GO GATORS!). It was during the summer in which she was completing an internship with the St. Petersburg Times in St. Petersburg, FL. We helped Niki move into her new apartment: One bedroom with a sectioned off kitchen area and a tiny, tiny bathroom. Jim and I were visiting over the 4th of July helping her with the move. It was hot, ohso HOT! Anyway, back to Shiva…."

Sharla Shults's insight:

While on vacation, we believe Shiva was stolen from us at an RV park. Events that led up to his missing definitely pointed in that direction. We just hope he has a good home and is being treated well. He was captivating in handsomeness and demeanor. A wonderful companion!

Unspoken Rules Everyone Should Know

Unspoken Rules Everyone Should Know | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

"There are those moments when we simply shake our heads, roll our eyes or sometimes even scream! What is it these days with common sense or should I say without common sense? Has it been thrown out with the baby’s bath water, flushed down the toilet or scattered in the wind? Just simple courtesies that everyone should know seem unheard of, unspoken, out of sight, out of mind!

See if you have encountered any of the ‘unspoken rules everyone should know‘ presented in the slideshow or perhaps leave a comment of one of your own."

If we're truthful and kind, maybe peace will prevail.
