And The Bell Sounds For Round 3

“When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.” - Albert Einstein

“It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.” - Robert H. Schuller

“We've had daunting problems in many critical areas, but I believe in the old Cherokee injunction to "be of a good mind." Today it's called positive thinking.” - Wilma Mankiller

And now for Part 3 of 101 Wonderful Ways To Start Making 2007 The Most Joyous Year Of Your Life

21. Relax, for heaven's sake. Hoard your emotional energy. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then give up. There's no use in being a damn fool about it," said W.C. Fields.

22. Judge everyone you meet with the scales weighted in their favour. You will not regret it.

23. Invite a houseguest for the weekend. Luxurious accomodations count for naught. What matters: a loving welcome, music, laughter, good things to eat.

24. Telephone an old beau, a former spouse, an old friend you haven't talked to in at least a year. Speak with affection and extend all good wishes for 2007.

25. Trust in your own jugement. "It is your most reliable counsellor. Our minds sometimes have a way of telling us more than seven watchmen posted high on a tower." Written more than a thousand years ago, this grows truer as "watchmen" proliferate.

26. Fast for one full day every other week, fruit juices only...and a bowl of gazpacho. Weight-controlling, internal cleansing, outwardly discipling. The food that is saved can go to the food bank.

27. Dare a totally new haircut. Splurge on the best place in town. New looks inspire new attitudes, new perspectives.

28. Flirt outrageously. If you're married, be a little less outrageous. Flirting's never serious, that's it's major charm.

29. Avoid envy. It has been said jealousy is the evil eye. Even if it's not, it gets you nowhere --- fast. It also gives you heartburn. Who needs that?

30. Examine astrology. It may give hints on how to love your mate better.


Sorry yer puter died again.... I like astrology tho - it can be pretty fun to read. I didn't think anyone else knew what gespatcho (sp) was!!

"The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and three hundred and sixty-two admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision." - Lynne Lavner*** I'm confused; curious; satisfied; realistically resigned to being a frustrated idealist; usually at peace with myself, but not always. Amazed at how little I know, and wondering how much I need to understand.
