This thread reminds me of one of my favorite quotes --

"Begin at the beginning...and go on till you come to the end: then stop..." -- the King of Hearts in Alice In Wonderland

We could use an Emoticon to signify that we were being sarcastic, even though the post isn't really something we would respond to in that manner.

How about this one emoticon ?

Or this emoticon ?

Beginning today...

I will try very hard to refrain from making that stick my finger down my throat motion after I read cheesy feel-good schmaltzy crap like this --

Well, let me tell you what came to mibd when I read this:

Beginning today

I will open my mind and my heart.


I immediately thought of that old quote about not being too open minded so your brains don't fall out....

I expect to get different remarks but deep down someone is touched by the words... They may not always what I expect (because of the team) but the words will hit home in some way!... Fire away... Comments never offend me!

I just want to be sure that if I DID say something sarcastic in reply, it was not because I thought your post stunk or anything -- I would never in a million years want to offend you -- but since this is the Sarcastics Unlimited group...well, you know....

I know, I know -- maybe if I do say something snarky here in reply to one of these posts, I will also say something positive thanking you in another team, so you know that I really do appreciate the sentiment....

How's that sound?

You know, Ray, you and I are on several of the same teams, and it has happened more than once that you post these helpful, uplifting, positive, wonderful messages to more than one team, so I see them several times.

Don't get me wrong, I always really enjoy these posts -- they are all really excellent. And if I were to comment on one of them in any of the other teams, I'd say so, sincerely.

But when you post them here in the Sarcasm team, I really have to bite my tongue and hold back to not say something snide and snarky in response....

This one in particular is just begging for a response....

Beginning today

I will no longer worry about yesterday.
It is in the past and the past will never change.
Only I can change by choosing to do so.

Beginning today

I will no longer worry about tomorrow.
Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to
make the most of it. But I cannot make the
most of tomorrow without first
making the most of today.

Beginning today

I will look in the mirror and I will see a
person worthy of my respect and admiration.
This capable person looking back at me is
someone I enjoy spending time with and someone
I would like to get to know better.

Beginning today

I will cherish each moment of my life.
I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world
and I will unselfishly share this gift
with others. I will use this gift to enhance
the lives of others.

Beginning today

I will take a moment to step off the beaten path
and to revel in the mysteries I encounter.
I will face challenges with courage and
determination. I will overcome what barriers
there may be which hinder my quest for
growth and self-improvement.

Beginning today

I will take life one day at a time, one
step at a time. Discouragement will not be
allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to
succeed or my capacity to love.

Beginning today

I walk with renewed faith in human kindness.
Regardless of what has gone before, I believe
there is hope for a brighter and better future.

Beginning today

I will open my mind and my heart.
I will welcome new experiences.
I will meet new people.
I will not expect perfection from myself
nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in
an imperfect world. But I will applaud
the attempt to overcome human foibles.

Beginning today

I am responsible for my own happiness and
I will do things that make me happy
admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen
to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a
puppy, soak in a bubble bath pleasure
can be found in the most simple of gestures.

Beginning today

I will learn something new; I will try something
different; I will savor all the various
flavors life has to offer.
I will change what I can and the rest I will let go.
I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.

Beginning today.

And every day.
