Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
I did it, I went back to the gym yesterday to restart my exercise routine. It didn’t last long for I found that while my mind was willing my body was not. I guess my back needs a little more healing time. But all is not lost I am still recovering, my life is good and I am sure it will continue to do so.
I like many others face challenges in my life and find that the secret is not to let reversals set you back. It is important to remember that the world can only change you if you let it do so.
Things to remember
By Bill Greer
Your presence is a present to the world.
You are unique and one of a kind.
Your life can be what you want it to be.
Take the days just one at a time.
Count your blessings, not your troubles.
You will make it through whatever comes along.
Within you are so many answers.
Understand, have courage, be strong.
Do not put limits on yourself.
So many dreams are waiting to be realized.
Decisions are too important to leave to chance.
Reach for your peak, your goal and you prize.
Nothing wastes more energy than worrying.
The longer one carries a problem the heavier it gets.
Do not take things too seriously.
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.
Remember that a little love goes a long way.
Remember that a lot … goes forever.
Remember that friendship is a wise investment.
Life’s treasure are people together.
Realize that it is never too late.
Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
Have hearth and hope and happiness.
Take the time to wish upon a start.
AND DO NOT EVER FORGET ….
FOR EVEN A DAY
HOW VERY SPECIAL YOU ARE !
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
My last years in grammar school were spent on a farm school for boys outside a small town in Illinois, we could walk to town on Wednesday and Saturdays during the summer, and if the weather permitted, we could go on Saturday in the winter. The town was so small that…
in order to paint traffic lines, the road had to be widened
the clinic was called Joe’s Hospital and Grill
instead of hoses, the Fire Department used water pistols
you had to make a reservation to use the parking place
during snowstorms, salt was spread using a pea shooter
the Mayor was also the Sheriff, Town Council & street sweeper
before you visited, you could look out a window & see who was home
But all kidding aside, the Saturday night movie shown outside on the school house wall and the volunteer fire departments barrel fights on the Fourth of July were really special. Don’t know about barrel fights? Two different fire companies would shoot water from their hoses on a beer keg from opposite sides; the goal was to get the barrel to the other side and win. As you can see life was simpler then, even our twenty-five cent weekly allowance went a long way.
What a pity human beings can’t exchange problems. Everyone knows exactly how to solve the other fellow’s.
“It’s just to hot to wear clothes today,” said Jack as he stepped out of the shower. “Honey, what do you think the neighbors would think if I mowed the lawn like this?”
“Probably that I married you for your money.”
“There are two different kinds of people in this world: those who finish what they start, and”
The minister’s little six-year-old girl had been so naughty during the week, that her mother decided to give her the worst kind of punishment. She told her she couldn’t go to the Sunday School Picnic on Saturday. When the day came, her mother felt she had been too harsh and changed her mind. When she told the little girl she could go to the picnic, the child’s reaction was one of gloom and unhappiness. “What’s the matter? I thought you’d be glad to go to the picnic.” her mother said. “It’s too late!” the little girl said. “I’ve already prayed for rain!”
Originality is the art of concealing your sources.
John was called into his bank to discuss his accounts.
“Your finances are in terrible shape,” the banker stated. “Your checking account is overdrawn, your loan is overdue.”
“Yes, I know.” said the man. “It’s my wife Jill, she is out of control.”
“Why do you allow your wife to spend more money than you have?” asked the banker.
“Frankly,” replied the man with a deep sigh, “because I’d rather argue with you than with her.”
Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more, and don’t get so worked up about things.
