Succeed in Spite of Your Circumstances

ďItís not where you start; itís how you finish.Ē

When looking at the big picture, we all know that how we finish is more important than where we start. Many successful people started out in life with the odds against them, & came through winners. They didnít let their starting situation determine their final outcome. Think about itÖthis same philosophy can apply to everything we do.

MOSQUITOES - That time of year!

A GREAT repellent is BOUNCE (in the orange box). It contains white oleander and mosquitoes HATE the smell. Tie one on you & you wonít be bothered by them. Wipe outside walls & surfaces like decks & cushion covers & youíll never see them. Donít use heavily perfumed shampoos, lotions, hairsprays or deodorants.They also LOVE dark colored clothes, so don't wear.

Hurt feelings

Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside me can hurt me. Thatís not a possibility. Itís only when I believe a stressful thought that I get hurt. And Iím the one whoís hurting me by believing what I think. This is very good news, because it means that I donít have to get someone else to stop hurting me. Iím the one who can stop hurting me. Itís within my power. - Byron Katie

A toddler's WHY?

emoticon emoticon emoticon
Next time a toddler asks you WHY? about the same thing over and over again, ask them to tell you why. This can lead to a wonderful interactive dialog with them, which helps develop language skills. Be careful not to criticize the remarks, though. Doing so will discourage them from using their own thought processes to problem solve.

Old boxes of baking soda

Use the 'old' boxes of baking soda from your fridge and freezer for cleaning your pots and pans, washing up after greasy or yard work, final rinse on your dogs bath, cleaning jewelry stones.
Put it in a Big empty spice shaker and it is handy in the garage, shed and under the sinks. Leaves skin SILKY smooth too!
