Think Like A Champion

Thursday, October 20, 2011

* Expect to win. Whatever you're doing, believe you will succeed.

* Celebrate small victories. Build confidence by recognizing small wins. It may give you the gumption to work harder and believe that you can do greater things.

* Focus on what you get to do, not what you have to do. Think of life and work as gifts, not chores. This may help you commit to the task and appreciate the process.

    Great advice. So much of success in life is due to attitude (and gratitude). :-)

    Good thoughts!

I worked off and on today on housework. What I counted was chores done with no breaks, but a couple came by and visited for awhile and then I made supper and put clean sheets on the bed and was whipped.

I used to think of housework like Cinderella's wicked stepsisters making her work while they did what they wanted. Now I view it as blessing my family and getting it done, so I can do what I want (FlyLady teaching).

We have company coming over the weekend. I hope you have a great weekend if I don't get to answer comments.

You're Too Old To Trick Or Treat When...........

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

You may have seen these before, as I have, but they always make me laugh!!!

YOU'RE TOO OLD TO TRICK OR TREAT WHEN.........

10. You keep knocking on your own front door.

9. You remove your false teeth to change your appearance.

8. You ask for soft high fiber candy only.

7. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, and you lose your balance and fall over.

6. People say: "Great Boris Karloff Mask," and you're not wearing a mask. (My favorite)

5. When the door opens you yell, "Trick or........" and you can't remember the rest.

4. By the end of the night, you have a bag full of restraining orders.

3. You have to carefully choose a costume that doesn't dislodge your hairpiece.

2. You're the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.

And the number one reason Seniors SHOULD NOT go Trick or Treating.......

1. You keep having to go home to pee.

No matter, have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN anyway.

Health Message (Tongue In Cheek)

Monday, October 17, 2011

As I was in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized that I don't really give a rat's a _ _. It's the tortoise life for me!

1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.

3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.

4. A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.

And you tell me to exercise??? I don't think so.

I'm retired. Go around me!

It's Official!!!!! I'm Looking Older!!!!!

Sunday, October 16, 2011

I was in the driveway washing our car, when I saw large shadows reflected on the hood of the car. I looked up and there were two Buzzards circling me overhead!!!!! And they didn't go away, but started to circle even closer to me. I ran in the house and looked in the mirror to see how deathly I really looked!!!!!

Then, as if that wasn't bad enough.........my husband and I stopped at Culver's (a fast-food restaurant in our area) to get a soda and we were given the Senior Citizen discount without us asking for it!!!!!

How depressing!!!!! That's all for today.......I'm going to take a nap!!!!!!

    I went out a few weeks ago and sat on a chair in the shade. I saw one bird circling and then it was joined by another, then another. I don't know what kind they were.

I love the senior citizen's discount. Here they give it to you when you turn 55 and I am 59. That's money I can save to use for other things I would like to have.
