"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."
~ Winston Churchill ~
British politician (1874 - 1965)

This pretty much summarizes my greatest lesson of the past several months. Well, ok, two of the greatest anyway... :-P

And now, I will present to you TWO, that's right! TWO of my mega show stopping fears...

drumroll please...

Speaking up when it's necessary!

drumroll again(?)... please(!)...

Shutting UP when it's time to listen!

So, in the spirit of speaking up and shutting up listening ;-) LET'S MAKE THIS INTERACTIVE!!!

Do you relate to this "quote" somehow? Do you have a different perspective regarding this "quote"? Do you just want to make me smile by leaving a little something in the comments section???

I'm going out on a limb here folks! Addressing more great fears of rejection and failure here... So, help a girl out and tell me something!

With much gratitude,

Your Favorite Oxymoron <3


  1. you're pretty awesome ms. leslie. thought i'd leave a comment to make you smile. <3Jen

    1. back atcha Jen! <3 i bet this smile will even last till today at 4! :-P

  2. I think this relates, I wonder if you will too - a short and sweet quote - "Hold the vision and trust the process." It has the same kind of feel to it, like sometimes we don't know what's coming so we just have to sit back and find out what it is.

    1. I LOVE this quote! It says a whole lot doesn't it? I kinda feel like Vision and Process ganged up on us a little here... But, isn't it (almost always) worth it when we do sit back and let it be what it was going to be anyway?

      Thank you much!!!
