Thursday, Thursday, Thursday

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Every day seems to have a nick-name except Thursday! OK, maybe not Tuesday either. It is discrimination against the "T-days". Perhaps we should organize a mar ch in Washington DC. That seems to be the popular way to address any grievance these days. Far be it from any of these activists to actually get out and do something other than organize marches. Now, with the Tea Party marching, we have bothy sides of the issue marching. Pretty soon, you will have to make a reservation to hold a march because there just isn't room for everyone!

Although the speaker belies the content, "There comes a time when you have to stand up and take responsibility for your actions." It would be so much better if someone besides O.J. SImson had said that but the idea is good. Maybe we should make Thursday "Responsibility Day". This is the day each week when we consciously stop blaming circumstances and other people for our ills and admit that we are the ones responsible for our situation and our future. "The you you see is the you you'll be" and "If it's to be, it's up to thee"

  


Wonderful Wednesday!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Another dawn and another great day! Sure, things could be better (maybe) but they sure could be worse. It's the story of the man who felt sorry for himself because he had no shoes and then met a man with no feet. In "Candide", Dr. Pangloss continuously says "Everything happens for the best in this best of all possible worlds" Adapt this philosophy and things will get better and better and soon approach best.

Tuesday is Terrific!

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Tuesday is Terrific! But then, so are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

Every morning, at the start of our day, we make a conscious decision that today is going to be a terrific day or today is going to be a terrible day. Two choices, eight letters each, the first five are identical. You only have to choose between "fic" and "ble". Simple choice.

The choice you make at the beginning of the day is a self-fulfilling prophesy. Abraham Lincoln said it had been his experience that people were just about as happy as they made up their minds to be. Henry Ford said that whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are usually right!

Make the choice, choose "fic" and have a terrific day!

  


Monday, Monday!

Monday, May 17, 2010

The Carpenters had it all wrong "Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down" Monday is a great day! Monday is to the week just as Spring is to the year. It is the great awakening and the beginning of a new cycle. Do not dread Monday, rejoice in it, after all, it is a day the Lord has made.
