Hi Journal & Friends,
How's about some Favorite Trivia??
Did you know there are only four words in the English language which end in "DOUS"?
Charlie "Tremendous" Jones, a motivational speaker, was determined to start off each day with a good attitude. He gave each day of the week a nickname:
Now, which makes you feel better? Blue Monday... or Marvelous Monday? Nuff said.
Some of the stuff I catch myself saying. Like... oh no, it's going to be one of THOSE days. Um... with that attitude, it sure will!!
The best thing that helps me in watching my words is to pretend that they are literal. That's a real eye-opener when you hear yourself say stuff like "oh, this is just killing me!" Words have power... and we need to speak LIFE, not death.
... the level of friendship, support, understanding and camaraderie that I discovered in the blogging community! I really am thankful for you all.
Those days when you don't feel like you have much to say. You might FEEL it... but sometimes you can't quite translate it into words. Like, it's still bubbling in the pot, and not quite done yet. Anyone know what I mean???
Today's Peek at the Past (How embarrassing... didn't I just post yesterday something about needing to learn flexibility?? It's been a year since I wrote this!)
From Day 11, August 20, 2009:
I think I need to work on FLEXIBILITY....I can't always control things around me, or things like toothaches...but I certainly can choose my response to those things. No more crying...no more whining...no more self-pity. It is what it is...now deal with it. What's that old cliche?? This too shall pass.
So there you go... flexibility... I need to learn to be less like the stiff droid C3PO and more like Gumby.

My quote for today: "To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day to make you everybody else--means to fight the hardest battle which any human being could fight, and keep fighting." --E.E. Cummings
