Laughter burns calories

We control how we respond to life. You choose to appreciate what you have and sail forward or you focus on what is behind and drown. I am a realist who has decided that for the rest of my journey, I am going to enjoy all the humor life has to offer. Because the world has gone nuts. I believe positive people bring a little sanity into this CRAZY world. And the only antidote for the madness, is to have some good laughs along the way.

"You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything - even poverty - you can survive it." ~~Bill Cosby

"Happiness is not a brilliant climax to years of grim struggle and anxiety. It is a long succession of little decisions simply to be happy in the moment. "

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.� ~~Maya Angelou

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections

"Treat a person as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat him as he could be, and he will become what he should be."
— Jimmy Johnson

It is important to periodically reassess the intensity of your workouts and routine of your workout...because once a routine is familiar, your sympathetic nervous system grows blasé, holds back adrenaline, and you plateau.

Some words of wisdom from Barbara Tuchman, regarding history (or, in our case, news):

"A greater hazard, built into the very nature of recorded history, is overload of the negative: the disproportionate survival of the bad side — of evil, misery, contention, and harm. In history this is exactly the same as in the daily newspaper. The normal does not make news.

"History is made by the documents that survive, and these lean heavily on crisis and calamity, crime and misbehavior, because such things are the subject matter of the documentary process — of lawsuits, treaties, moralists’ denunciations, literary satire, papal Bulls. No Pope ever issued a Bull to approve of something.

"Negative overload can be seen at work in the religious reformer Nicholas de Clamanges, who, in denouncing unfit and worldly prelates in 1401, said that in his anxiety for reform he would not discuss the good clerics because “they do not count beside the perverse men.”

"Disaster is rarely as pervasive as it seems from recorded accounts. The fact of being on the record makes it appear continuous and ubiquitous whereas it is more likely to have been sporadic both in time and place. Besides, persistence of the normal is usually greater than the effect of disobedience, as we know from our own times.

"After absorbing the news of today, one expects to find a world consisting entirely of strikes, crimes, power failures, broken water mains, stalled trains, school shutdowns, muggers, drug addicts, neo-Nazis, and rapists. The fact is that one can come home in the evening — on a lucky day — without having encountered more than one or two of these phenomena.

"This has led me to formulate Tuchman’s Law, as follows: “The fact of being reported multiplies the apparent extent of any deplorable development by five- to tenfold” (or any figure the reader would care to supply)."
