  • Here here! Youssef! But on that journey ALWAYS think positive!!! You'll achieve more and cope with the inevitable little mishaps and hiccups in life so much better. The roller-coaster journey of life with the ups and downs moulds your character and allows you to become that person you always wanted to be but only if you always look on the bright side of life! There's a song by that name, isn't there? Eric Idle and the Monty Python team! Oh no! I'll be singing that in my head now as I turn in for the .....early morning. It's 1:30am here. I should have been a positive bunny and gone to bed a long time ago!! Oh well, I feel happy! Achieved a lot today. Maybe I should have a well earned long nap tomorrow afternoon?
    Night all you positive peeps!!
  • Ahhh, what IS it that I really want out of life? A very deep question Penny. I have spent the better part of my life trying to answer that question. Really, deciding what we want out of life is coming to terms with who we really are, and that answer is something that may surprise many of us. To make matters even more difficult, we often change as we get older so our desires change as well. Perhaps it is less complicated if we follow the age-old rule: "Life is not a destination, but a journey."

    Peace, friends
  • Food 4 Thought

    "The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what it is you want." Ben Stein

    That sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? Just decide what you want.

    In my life, however, I have found it quite difficult at times to focus in my real desires.

    For instance:

    Do I want success – or do I really want the money I’ll receive as a result of my success?

    Do I want happiness – or do I want the happiness of others at my expense?

    Do I want a healthy body – or do I just want the attention I’ll get as a result of losing weight?

    Do I want to help others – or am I really looking for acceptance from others whom I help?

    All of those are valid and are just part of being human. There is no right or wrong. Where the lesson comes in is actually looking at the REAL desire behind the words. If you can do this, then you can be far more motivated in your actions.

    If success means money to you, you don’t have to deny it. It’s a valid motivation. It certainly doesn’t make you a “bad” person because you’d like a healthy bank account.

    If happiness means being a “doormat” or giving up what makes you happy so that others can be happy – you may want examine why that is important to you and how you might change that pattern.

    If having a healthy body is only motivated by the attention you’ll receive, the real desire is attention. Then you need to ask yourself why that is important to you.

    If your only motivation for helping others is so they will like you - then it's acceptance you crave. But if you do it because it gives you joy, their acceptance isn’t all that critical.

    It’s just something to think about folks. What are your thoughts?

  • Wow! He is fantastic!!!
    I love Eddie Izzard. Saw him live in Houston last year. He is very funny and my my good friend here in Houston, who is also English, studied and hung out with him at Manchester university when they were young students. Small world. Now she's a Brit in Houston like me and we met by sheer chance and she is now one of my best friends.
    I feel totally totally inspired to succeed. Just reading about him running a marathon everyday with blisters makes my job of building my voiceover business seem easier and much less painful.

    Oh, by the way. I GOT SIGNED UP WITH A DALLAS AGENT YESTERDAY!!! The Elite Agency! Whoo hoo!! Go me!!!!
  • I used to enjoy Eddie Izzard as a simple aid for insanity. Maybe it was his impersonation of the giraffe's vacuuming the ark (I'm sure I've got something wrong there). Now I also admire this guy.

    Take a look here at a phenomenal example... if Eddie Izzard can run 43 marathons in 51 days, what can I achieve? "Run, Izzard, run and run again"

    It's the last leg of Eddie Izzard's 43 marathons in 51 days. How did the less than athletic comic pull off such a feat of endurance?
  • Deby, what a great list! I think I will post my own daily 10 list for inspiration. Thanks for sharing.
  • This is just wonderful, Deby! If all of us take a minute each day to be grateful for the little things in life, we'll find there are far more than we ever imagined! Give it a try.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Deby!

    Hugs,

    Penny
