Tuesday Tidbits


Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!


The quickest way to fail at something is to think you can’t. I keep an open mind and assume there is nothing I can’t do. I would like to think I have been more often right than not.

Truth is like truffles. Delicious but hard to find.

It is truly better to give than receive. But for some, pride makes it just as hard to receive as it makes it hard for others to give.

Sanity is always gauged through a one-way mirror.

A woman sells her body just to have enough money to feed her children. A professional athlete makes millions of dollars for playing a game. One we idolize and one we denigrate.

There is always a better way to do something. But don’t worry, if you cannot be bothered to look for it, I assure you your competition will.

Our eyes are set far enough apart that the two different viewing angles grant us our depth perception. So too, we must teach our mind to look at things from multiple angles. This is the only way to gauge the depth of a thought or idea.


Now get out there and write something!

  1. I really need to process the fact that it is “pride” that makes it hard to receive! Intellectually, that makes sense, However, knowing that doesn’t help getting past the pride.

    interesting comprison between a prostitute and a professional athlete;

    and yes, riches often accrue to those who find a better way to do something…

    I have a hard time receiving, but it’s something I’ve been trying to overcome. I love doing things for others and helping out when I can to relieve their stress, so why is it so hard for me to grasp that others enjoy doing those same things for me? I’m always afraid I’m a burden or making someone go out of their way.

    And that last one! That tidbit needs to be shouted from rooftops!!

      Thanks Kristian! My sister is the one the taught me that to deny a gift or assistance is to not allow the other person to feel the joy we do when we give.

        My aunt taught me that same thing, yet, she struggles with it too. I allowed myself to be spoiled by friends and family on my birthday. It was nice! I’m working on not only being more accepting, but reaching out when I need to. I rarely ask for help. I could be drowning and still think “It’s okay, I got this.”

      • Brad Osborne says:

        Independence is a hard habit to break.

    I love the mindset of the first tidbit. Having a belief in one’s self goes a long way.

    These are all great Brad but being a woman and a mother this one really made me think of mothers that do just that and are ridiculed by so many who are lucky enough not to have ever had to go there. I am grateful I never did.

    “A woman sells her body just to have enough money to feed her children. A professional athlete makes millions of dollars for playing a game. One we idolize and one we denigrate.”

    Great quotes dear Brad, sending you big bags of dream dust with my fairies. They will not startle you but instead they will get you right before bed. Love you Jonikins xoxoxxo
