My sleep disorder was back, I have drugs that help me stay asleep but they make me stay out 'till 9-10AM so sometimes I skip a dose... and pay the price.  :-\

You couldn't sleep or were just watching movies?

All-nighters are just so lovely and this is the first one that I've to endure lately, so I guess there's no call for complaining overly much.  laughing7

Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake.

You do, you just haven't bothered to search for it. ;)

God gave us all special talents for us to be creative. Our job is to find it or them. You'll know when you find something that when you learn something about it, it makes you happy. Explore it, learn it, be happy and make others happy doing it. ;)

And always remember...it's never too late. Colonel Sanders (Kentucky Fried Chicken) started in his 20's and didn't make it until his 70's! Yeah, he was a bigot, etc. but he never gave up and it ended out working for him. Even if someone is an enemy doesn't mean you can't learn from them. ;)

No, it could be anything that you feel inspired to do that makes you happy. :) Trust me, your life will change for the better. Me...I'm a "jack of all trades and a master of none". LMAO I just like learning new things to do.

I'll bet you've had a lot of laughs about that. LOL

15 Quotes to Help You Relax and Slow Down

Life is all about balance — work hard, play hard, that sort of thing. But where can we fit relaxation into that busy go-go-go equation?

The dictionary definition of “relax” is aspirational and healing: “to make or become less tense or anxious.” For some folks, relaxation takes the form of zoning out in front of a TV. For others, gardening or tending to the house offers calming effects. Whatever your chosen method of relaxation — whether it be time spent horizontal in a hammock or pressing pause on work to stroll through the neighborhood — rest should be a built-in part of everyone’s daily routine.

So when deadlines and to-do’s start to feel overwhelming, take these 15 quotes about the importance of relaxation to heart. Remember: This life is beautiful but brief, and it’s crucial to pause and destress every once in a while, so as not to miss the smaller moments that make all the work worthwhile.

    There is more to life than increasing its speed.
    — Mahatma Gandhi

    Taking time to do nothing often brings everything into perspective.
    — Doe Zantamata, author

    The time to relax is when you don't have time for it.
    — Sydney J. Harris, journalist

    It’s not the daily increase but the daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.
    — Bruce Lee

    Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
    — Chinese proverb

    We're so busy watching out for what's just ahead of us that we don't take time to enjoy where we are.
    — Bill Watterson, creator of "Calvin & Hobbes"

    Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that's very important for good health.
    — Dalai Lama

    Every now and then, go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer.
    — Leonardo da Vinci

    Sometimes, the most productive thing that you can do is to step outside and do nothing… relax and enjoy nature.
    — Melanie Charlene, author

    It's a good idea always to do something relaxing prior to making an important decision in your life.
    — Paulo Coelho, author

    I promise you nothing is as chaotic as it seems. Nothing is worth diminishing your health. Nothing is worth poisoning yourself into stress, anxiety, and fear.
    — Steve Maraboli, author

    Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream.
    — John Lennon

    Rule number one is, don’t sweat the small stuff. Rule number two is, it’s all small stuff.
    — Robert Eliot, author

    Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
    — Lao Tzu

    Take rest; a field that has rested, gives bountiful crop.
    — Ovid, Roman poet

Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like 'struggle.'

I enjoy a lot of his commentary on issues of our human interaction with each other, but some of his thinking is on the conservative side and sometimes I totally disagree with him. He is a rather interesting and outspoken guy and he gets himself in hot water sometimes with posts like this one:
Jordan Peterson says he would ‘rather die’ than delete his 'hateful' tweet about Elliot Page
