A letter to myself. Sound familiar?

Hey girl,

It seems like you need a few words of wisdom sent your way. You have been a bit on the sluggish side lately. What gives? You seem to be right on target with stuff. You manage to get your work done. You manage to do what you have to do for other people, and they are fine. So, what is it that makes you smile a little less these days? You are always smiling! Did you forget to change all of the negative stuff into positive energy? Did you forget to meditate and do your yoga? Have you been eating a bunch of sugar? Well, it is your birthday! Once a year should be fine, right? So, whatever is getting you to be in such a mood, take hold of it and WAKE UP! Life is for living! Life is for doing! Life is what you want it to be! So, SMILE! Laugh! You are blessed! You have your family and your friends! Like you always say, “BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!”

Make it a great day!

The right and the honor to maintain our dignity.

Work and stay focused on what is your plan.

Always remain positive with a smile close at hand!

If you have a chance to get to Dana Point, CA…you will not be unhappy about your choice. The beaches are so inviting. The food is great. The people are so friendly. Everything is clean. There are many places to just sit and relax in private. If you feel like music, there are nice bars you can visit. I actually saw Charlie Sheen and spoke to him. Pretty cool, huh? Hope you are all well and happy. See you soon. Thanks for stopping in. This weekend I may head to my mountain house or Las Vegas. Tough choice. lol

NO MORE PEP TALKS FOLKS 10/8/15

Well, I decided that I do not like doing a pep talk everyday because I think I need to do it. I just want to give a pep talk when I feel like giving a pep talk. I am not a coach, but I guess it is kind of the same thing. When I feel like I am getting a sign to post a pep talk, I will. Meanwhile, I will just keep being me and doing whatever sounds good or looks good. I hope you all have plans for a fun weekend. I need a break, so I am going with my hubby to Dana Point for the weekend. I have heard many nice things about it. I plan on just relaxing and doing what ever I feel like doing. Sounds good to me right now. So, I will be seeing you all in a few days. Stay healthy and have fun.

I do not get along with SNOW!

I have just spent a few hours outside in the cold. What was I doing? Well, how does shovelling snow sound to you all? I have a lot of respect for all of you out there who do this all the time because of where you live. I just have to deal with it whenever we decide to hit the snow1 I have to admit it is great exercise, but it is hard on the back. I will be heading home soon. Right now….gotta go. The snow is calling me.

Just stopping in…

May you all be blessed with many special moments…
May love reach deep into your heart…
May smiles be familiar to your face…
and may you be forever embraced with the affection of
your family and friends.

Laugh vith Doraz….A Womans Story*

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.

The question?….What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer..

But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first

The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur’s closest friend!

Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.

He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.

He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life and the preservation of the Round Table.

Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur’s question thus:

What a woman really wants, she answered….is to be in charge of her own life.

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and that Arthur’s life would be spared.

And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.

The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him… The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened.

The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.
Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day….or night?

Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch ? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?

What would YOU do?

What Lancelot chose is below. BUT…..make YOUR choice before you scroll down below. OKAY?

Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.

Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.

Now….what is the moral to this story?

*****

The moral is….
If you don’t let a woman have her own way….
Things are going to get ugly

Getting Old…..

I don’t know about you all, but I am getting SO TIRED of all the nasty attitudes people are showing because of this election. One of my friends shared these with me. I needed to laugh. Hope if you are in the same place..these help!

…….VOTE…….

I very quietly confided to my best friend that I was having an affair.
She turned to me and asked, ‘Are you having it catered’?
And that, my friend, is the definition of ‘OLD’!

Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very
elderly widow and asked, ‘How old was your husband?’
’98,’ she replied: ‘Two years older than me’
‘So you’re 96,’ the undertaker commented.
She responded, ‘Hardly worth going home, is it?’

Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman:
‘And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?’ the reporter
asked.
She simply replied, ‘No peer pressure.’

I’ve sure gotten old!
I’ve had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought
prostate cancer and diabetes I’m half blind, can’t hear anything quieter
than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy,
winded, and subject to blackouts.
Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and
feet anymore.
Can’t remember if I’m 85 or 92.
Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver’s
license.

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s
permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.
I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted,
gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour..
But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and told her preacher she had
two final requests.
First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes
scattered over Wal-Mart.
‘Wal-Mart?’ the preacher exclaimed. ‘Why Wal-Mart?’
‘Then I’ll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week’.

My memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.
Also, my memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.

Know how to prevent sagging?
Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

It’s scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

These days about half the stuff in my shopping cart says, ‘For fast
relief.’

THE SENILITY PRAYER :
Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good
fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Now, I think you’re supposed to share this with 5 or 6, maybe 10 others.
Oh heck, give it to a bunch of your friends if you can remember who they
are!

Always REMEMBER this:
You don’t stop laughing because you grow old; You grow old because you stop
laughing…

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
I don’t want to brag or make anyone jealous or anything, but I can still
fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
