THE PSYCHIATRIST'S ADVISE

Saturday, August 11, 2012

A husband is advised by a psychiatrist to assert himself. "You don't have to let your wife henpeck you! Go home and show her you are the boss!" Of course, the husband takes the doctor's advice. He rushes home, slams the door, shakes his fist in his wife's face, and growls, "From now on, you're taking orders from me! I want my supper right now and when you get it on the table, go upstairs and lay out my best clothes. Tonight, I'm going out with the boys and you are going to stay at home where you belong! And another thing...guess who's going to comb my hair, give me a shave, and tie my necktie?" His redheaded wife says calmly, "The undertaker."

THURSDAY THOUGHTS

Thursday, August 02, 2012

The first step to living the life you want, is leaving the life you don't want. Taking that first step forward is always the hardest , but then each step forward gets easier & easier, and each step forward gets you closer & closer to where you want to be.

Why is it that people that have it all can't be thankful for what they have; they always want more & people who have nothing count their blessings every day.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

“The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.”

    My life took a dramatic change two years ago, and now I am still in flux. Not sure what I want to be or have or where. Since its my decision, though, I am working on it.

    This is beautiful but can you leave anything you don't want?
there are many unwanted but you don't like to leave them, I don't want to give examples.
please answer me
because I want to leave things that live with me for 48 years now like my profession.

THE FUNERAL (Joke)

Tuesday, July 31, 2012


A man was leaving a convenience store with his morning coffee when he noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking single file. The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the man walking the dog and said:"I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?"
"My wife's."
''What happened to her?"
"She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her."
He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"
The man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her. She didn’t survive either."
A very poignant and touching moment of brotherhood and silence passed between the two men. "Can I borrow the dog?"
The man replied, "Get in line."

The Sportsman

Thursday, July 26, 2012

A sportsman just off the lake went into a fishmonger's shop and told the owner, "I'd like some fish to take home with me. Can you make them look like they were caught today?"
"How many?" the owner asked.
"Three or four--perch, let's say. You know, a decent amount, without seeming to exaggerate.'
'You should take trout instead."
"Why is that?"
"No reason, really, except that your wife was here this morning and said that if you came by, I should recommend trout. It's her favorite>"

OVERCOMING PERFECTIONISM

Monday, July 23, 2012

Overcoming Perfectionism
By John H. Sklare, Ed.D, Lifescript Personal Coach
There are a lot of people out there who fail at lifestyle change and weight loss because they are perfectionists. A perfectionist is someone who allows no room for error in their program. Being a perfectionist makes it near impossible to succeed at lifestyle change.

If you are a perfectionist, try living by what I call the 95% rule. Allowing yourself a 5% leeway, for those inevitable occasions when everyone misses a beat or two, will provide you with the breathing space you need. One method, which can be used to provide you with a controlled breathing space, is called the "Freedom Hour." Set one hour aside every couple of weeks or once a month when it is legal to eat anything you want - in moderation, that is.

You don't have to use this freedom hour if you choose not to. As a matter of fact, there is an incredible feeling of power that accompanies skipping this hour. The purpose of this hour, however, is to take the pressure off and defuse the feeling that you can NEVER eat anything that you truly like again. This "free eating" notion comes from the eating disorders clinic at Harvard's McLean Hospital. They report that using an "anti-diet" plan like this with patients led to an 80% decrease in binge eating. The theory is that, if you give yourself permission to eat on occasion, you won't want that "forbidden" food as much. If overcoming perfectionism is an issue for you, I suggest you give this a try!

    I AM A SERIOUS PERFECTIONIST. WHEN I WAS SINGLE, IT WORKED WELL FOR ME AND I NEVER HAD A WEIGHT PROBLEM. IT WASN'T UNTIL I MARRIED AND FOUND THAT I COULDN'T CONTROL WHAT THE OTHERS AROUND ME DID, THAT I STARTED HAVING ISSUES. IT PROGRESSED TO FULL BLOWN OCD FOR WHICH I HAD TO GET HELP. I AM STILL STRUGGLING BUT NOT NEARLY AS MUCH AS I USED TO. MY BODY SAW TO THAT. I AM NOW LIMITED ON WHAT I CAN DO AND AM PLEASED WHEN I CAN GET MINOR THINGS DONE THAT I USED TO DO ALL THE TIME. QUESTION - CAN I MOVE INTO THIS THOMAS KINCADE BACKGORUND ON YOUR PAGE?
