Quote of the Day…5/7*

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear. And the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.”

H.P Lovecraft

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt:

After 20 years…….gosh…it’s gonna get ugly!

A good friend just called. She was crying and very upset. She could not believe what just happened to her. She could not understand why  .It was her significant other. She always did everything for him. She always supported him. She gave up several key positions in her career just to help advance his. She was always faithful. She was always there. What does he do? He walks up to her one day and says he does not love her anymore. Just like that. No warning. No signs. He claims to be in love with a woman who has 2 children and is currently in the middle of her own divorce. She is 20 years younger. She is involved with a married man. Does she not understand this? Does she not care? Of course my friend is expecting to divorce. She has no choice. She tryed with all her strength to make it work. She was even willing to forgive and forget his affair! They even went to marriage counseling. The counselor said he was too far gone to work out their marriage. So, she is on her own again, after a 20 year committment. She is determined to live on. She is determined to be strong. She is determined to live her life. She knows she has a long journey in front of her, but she also knows she has support. I admire her courage. I admire her spirit. I admire her!

“War,Inc.,” Movie Review

Wow, this was an interesting movie. I really enjoyed it. Hats off to John Cusack and the cast. They pulled it off. John Cusack is undercover. He is a hitman assigned in a country gone wild. He has to deal with his inner struggles and the weird personalities of the locals. He is portrayed as someone which he is not. He has a sense of humor he uses to try to get on with his assignment to kill. He has heart and compassion in human beings. He wants to do good, yet his ” real” job wants him to kill! His boss is wacko! His assistant is hilarious ( Joan). She keeps the movie moving along. The pop singer in this movie is someone you hate and then someone you feel sorry for. Hilary Duff is great! I don’t know, I feel this is worth renting. It was a movie worth seeing!

A day in the life of…….

A very special friend, who is like a sister to me, has recently been told she has multiple sclerosis. She has been to so many doctors and has had so many tests, I admire her courage and strength. For a long time, she admits she was in denial. The sensation that her body is experiencing is only known to her. The pain and anguish she feels, she must endure. She has had to start giving herself injections everyday. She can no longer hide and pretend all is fine with her system. She has taken the responsibility of caring for herself, and she must deal both mentally and physically each day with whatever this disease may bring. She has educated herself to MS and has made the decision to fight and hope one day for a cure. Research in the area of MS has grown, so she feels one day soon she will have great news!

She has also come to understand that her friends and family are with her on this journey in life that she must now go through. She understands that she does not need to do it alone…others love her and are with her! I admire her strength. I admire her courage. I admire her sense of humor! I love my friend! I am not going anywhere. I will always be there for her! Friends to the end!

Footnote taken from Wikepedia……

There is no known cure for MS. Treatments attempt to return function after an attack, prevent new attacks, and prevent disability.[1] MS medications can have adverse effects or be poorly tolerated, and many patients pursue alternative treatments, despite the lack of supporting scientific study. The prognosis is difficult to predict, it depends on the subtype of the disease, the individual patient’s disease characteristics, the initial symptoms and the degree of disability the person experiences as time advances.[7] Life expectancy of patients is nearly the same as that of the unaffected population.[7]

BE A FRIEND TO SOMEONE YOU LOVE….FRIENDSHIP HOLDS AMAZING POWER…….

Believe in Yourself!

I am getting so tired of seeing the majority of society walking around all over the place like they are in auto-pilot. Do they realize that they are not even noticed? Do they realize that most people do not even care about what is going on with them? Do they understand that one day, maybe sooner than they suspect, their gig is up? Well, I do not believe so.
I believe a lot of people are just doing what they think they are expected to be doing. You’re a baby doing all the cool baby stuff, you become a toddler and start noticing that everyone is not going goo -goo all over you anymore, then you become a TEENAGER…lookout, and finally an adult. During all those phases in your life, you start to realize that the whole world does not focus solely on you. You begin to develop survival mechanisms that help you stay sane….if you are lucky! I believe, somewhere along the way, we lose our SENSE OF HUMOR and our INDIVIDUALITY.
So, I guess what I am getting at is….DO NOT LOSE YOURSELF.
Don’t be afraid to sing in public or start dancing, when you hear a song you love. Do not be afraid to state your opinion , it counts. Do not be afraid to speak up when you notice something that is not right. Do not be afraid to EXPRESS YOURSELF. I love to express myself through dance. I am not a great dancer, but I ain’t too bad!!! I just love being “different.”
I like to write down, every so often, what I like about myself and what I think I should try to improve on. ( Of course, I never have any in that column.) It helps me stay focused on handling everyday stuff in my life. It is just one of the things that works for me. Try it , if you want.

Oh, I get it now!

I figure that if you’re intimidated, you did something wrong. I figure that if you were ok with yourself, you would not feel like you had to defend yourself! Maybe what the other person said or did is in fact well deserved. Then you should feel intimidated and only then. If you did nothing wrong and just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and got in the cross fire of an angry person….DO NOT LET THEM INTIMIDATE YOU! Stand strong in your convictions. Stand strong in your beliefs. That other person is going through something in their day that is bothering them and they do not know how to communicate that to someone. You can try to be a good listener and help the other person out. If they do not let up….give them time on their own to calm down. They are in a different place and just need to get ground again. Give them time. Meanwhile, go out and treat yourself to something special. You deserve it!

Believe in Yourself!

Mental Health and Laughter….

I would have been committed several times already to a psych ward if it weren’t for my sense of humor! I encounter stupidity all day long and have to really resist the urge in just ” letting it go!” All of us have hopefully set up some coping skills to help us get past the ” craziness” of this planet! Good mental health involves courage, determination, and will power! It involves saying to yourself, ” I believe in myself and what I can do. I will survive! I will succeed!” It is also my strong opinion that you need to see the humor in the situation you’re in. That is why I just take a step back before I respond. I stop and think about something funny, smile, and then ATTACK nicely! It can be done! You can make a point just as strongly being nice about it! Try it out and let me know if it works for you!
