Just a few musings from this time last year>
Focusing on not giving opinions but giving a gift to everyone, be that a smile, a gesture of some sort or a compliment really affects the people around me. I’ve always been sincerely appreciative of anything anyone has done for me but just holding their eye a second or two longer and really delivering my gratitude with even more heartfelt emotion becomes tangible and not just a platitude. And it’s so easy to do.
Keeping up with my reading and all the others bits and pieces which are becoming more of a way of life rather than things on a list to do each day. I still do my readings first thing in the morning but everything else fits in and around my work. Funny: I was sitting in a car park waiting to go into a class and I had brought my Greatest Salesman book but forgot my DMP or movie trailer. Surprised myself that I could reiterate practically word for word my DMP from memory. I know it’s best to see it written down but good to know it’s within me wherever I go.
A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husband.
The women were asked, “How many of you love your husband?”
All the women raised their hands.
Then they were asked, “When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?”
Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn’t remember.
The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband: “I love you, sweetheart.”
Then, the women were then told to exchange phones with another person, and to read aloud the text message they received, in response.
Here are some of the replies:
I think some are hilarious…if you have been married for quite a while, a sign of true love…
Like who else would you reply to in such a succinct and honest way.
1. Who the hell is this?
2. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick or what?
3. Yeh, and I love you too. What’s up with you??
4. What now? Did you crash the car again?
5. I don’t understand what you mean?
6. What the f*ck did you do now?
8. Don’t beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?
9. Am I dreaming?
10. If you don’t tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die.
11. I thought we agreed you wouldn’t drink during the day.
12. Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn’t she??
Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
If you are having a bad day, remember it could be worse…..
