PROJECT: Show Your Beauty Feature 1SO here we go...a bit later than I said I know but I was hoping to give everyone that might want to participate a chance to submit. Pretty much run things the same way on this journal as the last. I will do another feature in like a month featuring any works you put a link to in a comment on this article. We had some tremendous things shared for this first feature and I hope you all can maybe find some inspiration to look for the beauty in your every day lives.PROJECT: Show Your Beauty Feature 1 by dsnider

It's been a month or more since I last did a journal--figured you all might like to have yet *another* journal crowding your inboxes and since I just roll that way, here it is!
I don't know how everybody else's autumn went but here it was really quite good until the last week. Last Saturday it was 70 F and a real pleasant day. Sunday a front came through and we've had nothing but clouds and cold and snow and below zero temps. I guess we had to pay for all the nice weather we've had here sometime
I've finally got a little time to unwind and try to get caught up on DA...an impossible task, really. No amount of free time will gain me an 'in control' inbox, I think. I've actually got some irons in the fire other than here and they have been taking up the majority of any time not working.
I hope you all have been enjoying life and living your dreams--again, an impossible goal for most, but always have hope and never let anyone steal your dreams for that is a crime against yourself; you're all better than that, I know. Maybe there's one of you who needs that spark of hope--that dream--just to survive from day to day. If that's you, then protect that dream, feed it, nurture it and help it grow no matter what it is and don't let anyone and I mean ANYONE steal it away from you.
And they will try. Ohhhh yeah, there are those out there who would like nothing better than to crush not only your dreams but your spirit. They might be complete strangers, friends or family. I say fight them! Tooth and nail and knuckle and skull; root hog or die! If you have a dream then it's worth standing up for yourself and denying the naysayers of the world. I don't mean literally carrying a big stick around and whacking folks--just defending yourself; believing in yourself. You're worth it. Life is worth it and your life is surprisingly long and short at the same time.
I'll get off the soapbox for now. I've said my piece. I'm a naturally negatively charged person so to preach something positive, especially this time of year, is tantamount to finding a parking spot at a Wal*Mart on Black Friday. It just doesn't happen very often.
I've got lots of new stuff to feature--too much for one journal, really--so here's a large helping of what I've been faving. Enjoy!
