2nd day of habit and jokes

Sunday, March 03, 2013

So the requirement of my current challenge is to blog about habits each day okay my two habits switching a little exe rise for sleep and staying posday itive. Okay today I am supposed to ask you for help . Okay how much exercise on a average to you get and how much sleep to you get? But here the big one I know I am not the only one with a stressful life how do you guys stay positive . can you give this pessimist any advice I could sure use. It The sleep part I am setting my alarm a little later. The positive part of the challenge I am trying to find three positive for each day. My positive for yesterday were 1. I got to talk to my Colorado spark friend yeah. What Led me to my second positive she talk to me while I walk my first two mile of my 5 k on the treadmill so I got my second 5k done on the treadmill yeah. This I also found a encouraging she because it meant she enjoy her movie so much I was able to get away to walk. Third positive mom and me have a pretty god day together.
A man placed some flowers on the grave of his dearly departed mother and started back toward his car when his attention was diverted to another man kneeling at a grave. The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity and kept repeating, "Why did you have to die? Why did you have to die?"The first man approached him and said, "Sir, I don't wish to interfere with your private grief, but this demonstration of pain is more than I've ever seen before. For whom do you mourn so deeply? A child? A parent?"The mourner took a moment to collect himself, then replied, "My wife's first husband."

A man is stumbling through the woods totally drunk when he comes upon a
preacher baptizing people in the river. He proceeds to walk into the waterand subsequently bumps into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol,
whereupon he asks the drunk, "Are you ready to find Jesus?"The drunk answers, "Yes, I am."So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him up and asks the drunk, "Brother, have you found Jesus?"The drunk replies "No, I haven't found Jesus, “The preacher shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again for aittle longer this time. He again pulls him out of the water and asks
again, "Have you found Jesus, my brother?"The drunk again answers, "No, I haven't found Jesus."By this time the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk in the water again - but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds and when he begins kicking his arms and legs he pulls him up. The preacher again asks the drunk, "For the love of God, have you found Jesus?"The drunk wipes his eyes and catches his breath and says to the preacher, "Are you sure this is where he fell in?"

Dear John, I'm sorry I broke off our engagement. I miss you terribly and regret my decision. Please take me back. Love,Mary PS. Congratulations on winning the World Series of Poker Main Event.

    Wow! Great job on your 5k! That equals at least 4 positives, right? Blow it up in your mind so it looks big, since it is big. Way to go!

    I usually get 7-8 hours of sleep per night and exercise for at least an hour each day. I stay positive by trying not to sweat the small stuff.

    I have to have 7-8 hours of sleep each night. I am very blessed that I fall asleep within 2 minutes of hitting the pillow - No joke! As far as being positive, I count my blessings. When I consider all the things I have in my life, it is hard to be brought down my little things. I think you are on a good start with writing down your 3 positive each day. It just takes refocusing to become more positive. emoticon

    Thanks for the funnies!
    I am a positive person. How do I do it you ask? The way I see it, you always have choices, life is nothing but choices and consequences. When you wake up in the morning, you have a choice, am I going to complain about life, or I am going to be happy I woke up and enjoy my day? I choose to enjoy myself, it is much more fun and I like the feeling of fun.
    Every day you wake up is a great day full of possibilities!!
    When my husaband was diagnosed with lung cancer, we discussed this same philosophy. We could either be in the pitty pot and be sad and whine all the time, or we could live our last days together to the fullest. We decided to get the most fun life we could packed into his final year. And we did.
    SO, getting in the best shape I can be in is not drudgery, it will allow me to enjoy this glorious life, living to the fullest for the rest of my years, enjoying activities with my wonderful children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and so on!!!!!

    As someone who can easily find the negative in the things if I let myself, it really takes practice and making it a habit to be positive about every thing.

    That's where "let's take a look on the bright side" comes in...

    That's why I recognize positives in each of my blogs (or try to) and end on the thankful note.

    I think it comes with practice.

    hi candy!
    exercise and sleep are different for everybody, it always depends on your work schedule. my rule-of-thumb is 8 hrs work, 8 hrs sleep, 8 hrs for private life (getting dressed and all, getting around, hobby, cleaning house etc). a lot of my work time IS exercise, so my private time goes to exercising only on weekends. then I do different things, like walking and swimming.

    love your jokes, and you above all.

    as for your being a pessimist, aren't you seeing things a little black? that's not the real you!
