Monday Monday

Monday, December 14, 2009

Monday morning and another week lies ahead, just waiting to be conquered. A week is just a collection of seven days. A day is just a collection of tewnty-four hours. An hour is just a collection of sixty minutes. I can do anything for a minute. If I conquer each minute as it arises, soon I will have conquered an hour, then a day, then a week. Watch out week!

Maintain Your Sanity!

Sunday, December 13, 2009

The vast majority of people are suffering from a mass hysteria and insanity and they call it Christmas Spirit. Nothing could be farther from what Christmas is than what it has become. Retailer and non-believers have hijacked this great holiday for their own benefit. In the original Waltons television show, Olivia Walton got her children extremely simple presents and the children were grateful. Elizabeth got a doll and John Boy a pad of paper. Today, children expect a room full of presents and parents think they are expected to provide them.

Step back from the insanity. Ask yourself what someone might really want for Christmas and what they would really appreciate. Then, get it for them! Maybe it won't be a room full of presents but it will be a present that is appreciated for its quality and not for its quanity

  


Ah the Fruitcake!

Saturday, December 12, 2009

I read a blog today enumerating holiday foods not to eat. There on the list was fruitcake. I never knew anyone really ate fruitcake in the first place. Johnny Carson maintained for years that there are a finite number of fruitcakes in the world and that they are simply re-gifted four to six times each every Christmas and then the Claxton Fruitcake Company gathers all of the cakes in late January or early February and re-packages them so that the madness can begin again the following November.

This year, i again will not eat fruitcake in respect of my health. Additionally, I will help others preserve their health by not re-gifting the fruitcake but rather forwarding it to the fruitcake company in Claxton, GA for repackaging and resale.

  


Make Your Own Kind of Music!

If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

Take Charge!

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

At this time of year, many people relinquish control of their lives to people who have no authority to take over. People are slaves to retailers who tell us when and where to shop. To business associates who tell us which holiday parties to attend. To well meaning relatives who tell us which traditions we have to uphold even though they have become meaningless. We wander aimlessly through the mall and around the buffet table at the get together, eating stuff that is not good for us and which we don't really like.

STOP THE MADNESS! Decide what it is that you really have to do this holiday season andput them on your calendar. Next, decide what it is you would like to do. Put them on your calendar. Forget about everything else! Enjoy!
