Positivity

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Fire your desire. Swap the words "I'll try" with "I'll do". It'll give you a more concrete positive mindset.

Try it ---- no, DO IT!!!

Black as night I’ll always be,
Until my mother smothers me. Then clear as ice I will become
In the rough.
Thank you, Mum!

What am I?

Scroll down for the answer...



It's a challenge...


I didn't get this one...


How about you?


Answer:


Coal, which starts out black and becomes a diamond “in the rough” after “Mother Earth” smothers it for a few million years.

    We're all "diamonds in the rough." Some of us are just "rougher" than others! lol

I figured it out, but it took me a couple of times reading it.

“To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it,—but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”

IN A NUTSHELL

Monday, December 05, 2011

"The Pistachio Principle"

People who were serve the nuts in the shell consumed about 40 percent fewer calories than those who snacked on the ready-to-eat version. Why?

Prying them open slows your pace so you can realize you're sated. The shells also serve as a visual cue, making your portion seem bigger and reminding you of how many you've eaten. The benefits likely apply to any nuts - walnuts, pecans, etc. So go ahead, get cracking!

    Wish I wasn't allergic to most nuts! I don't think the same rule applies to unwrapping Hershey's kisses!!! emoticon

The Power of YouTube

Saturday, December 03, 2011

“A previously unknown Canadian singer has finally found fame after writing a song about his struggle to get compensation from United Airlines. Dave Carroll claims his Taylor acoustic guitar was damaged by baggage handlers at Chicago’s O’Hare airport in 2008. After nine months of complaining by e-mail and phone proved fruitless, he made a music video about his struggle and called it ‘United Breaks Guitars.’ Several million YouTube hits later, United Airlines has offered to pay the cost of repairing the guitar and $1,200 worth of flght vouchers. Dave Carroll has asked that the money be donated to charity instead.”
