Words of Wisdom (wish I had said that)

(this pic is a mandala called Wisdom Pearl by Richard A. Waters )

"Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell'em, 'certainly I can!' - and get busy and find out how to do it."
Theodore Roosevelt, 1858-1919, Twenty-Sixth U.S. President

"Obstacles can't stop you. Problems can't stop you. Most of all, other people can't stop you. Only you can stop you."
Jeffrey Gitomer, Author and Sales Trainer

"I live by this credo: Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations. Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something to laugh about if you try hard enough."
Red Skelton, 1913-1997, Comedian

Today I Will Make A Difference

Today I will make a difference. I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of their thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have thoughts that are happy and hopeful. I refuse to be victimized by my circumstances. I will not let petty inconveniences such as stoplights, long lines, and traffic jams be my masters. I will avoid negativism and gossip. Optimism will be my companion, and victory will be my hallmark. Today I will make a difference.

I will be grateful for the twenty-four hours that are before me. Time is a precious commodity. I refuse to allow what little time I have to be contaminated by self-pity, anxiety, or boredom. I will face this day with the joy of a child and the courage of a giant. I will drink each minute as though it is my last. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. While it is here, I will use it for loving and giving. Today I will make a difference.

I will not let past failures haunt me. Even though my life is scarred with mistakes, I refuse to rummage through my trash heap of failures. I will admit them. I will correct them. I will press on. Victoriously. No failure is fatal. It's OK to stumble - I will get up. It's OK to fail - I will rise again. Today I will make a difference.

I will spend time with those I love. My spouse, my children, my family. A man can own the world but be poor for the lack of love. A man can own nothing and yet be wealthy in relationships. Today I will spend at least five minutes with the significant people in my world. Five quality minutes of talking or hugging or thanking or listening. Five undiluted minutes with my mate, children, and friends.

Today I will make a difference.

Max Lucado
From On The Anvil

Sidney Poitier, Actor and Author of The Measure of a Man

Benjamin Disraeli

"Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment."

The Last Lecture..."Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"

Many of you may have seen this lecture long before I did.
But for those who haven't or if it has been awhile please watch it again.
It is obviously very popular judging by the 4,221,441 hits it has had on Youtube.
I loved what Randy Pausch had to say.
It may not be new (yes, others have said the same or something similar) but it never hurts to hear these things again.

Randy Pausch died yesterday, July 25, 2008, and he has obviously left a wonderful legacy.
Here are some of the things that he said that hit me when I watched this vid.

"Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want."

"The Brick Walls are not there to keep us out. The Brick Walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something."

"Get a feedback loop and listen to it."

"Show gratitude."

"Be good at something. It makes you valuable."

"Find the best in everybody; no matter how long you have to wait for them to show it."

"Be prepared: "Luck" is where preparation meets opportunity."

"What am I doing to Enable the childhood dreams of others?"

Please enjoy this vid!

We all have to BE something....some of us just can't decide what that something is.

Personally, I think I have tried most of these.

Be KooKoo - Myspace Quote Graphics

(yes, I have noted that the maker of this graphic can't spell...I apologize for the typos but it's still a good poem or whatever)

IN the end all you can do is be yourself......well, that's a lie.

You could do something else.
You could keep trying to be something you're not.
Or you could continue to be what others want you to be or what others think you should be.

Personally, I find that to be really tiresome.

Easier to BE YOURSELF...once you figure out who that is.

Peace, Love, Laughter and Blessings y'all!

Sexy Mature Movie Men! my sis and I were talking about sexy older men in the movies (no...we weren't at or in the movies).
I will qualify it by saying men WE think are sexy. You may not agree and that's cool.
This all started cause we were just yapping away and I mentioned my fave guy and we were off!
The thing about all of these guys is that they have aged or are aging pretty damn well. Some of them look a lot better now than they did when they started acting.

Most lists do the top 10 but we decided on a Baker's Dozen. That's 12 plus an extra for good luck.

The first one we agreed on still my heart...Sam Elliot! (fans herself vigorously)
Hell I could just listen to the man talk and get a fit of the vapors!
And I watch Roadhouse just so I can see Sam...I cry everytime he I don't know it's coming. Yes, I know it's sad but what can I say.
Yeah, yeah..this isn't his most recent pic but I like this one.

Then of course we thought of ....sigh....Sean Connery. Lawdy, lawdy Miss Claudie! He starts talking and the room gets warmer. I love is James Bond days ( think I watch those movies over and over again for the superb if!) but I have to say the man is still waaaay sexy!

Speaking of hot...can we say Antonio Banderas? Yes we can! Mama can I have one'na dem?

Adrian Paul was next on the list. Some of y'all may not know Adrian. I really don't watch many movies so I first saw him in the Highlander tv series. Yummy!

Will Smith just made the cut because he will be 40 in September and my sister was having a hissy fit cause I said he was too young. Not that I don't like Will cause I do but we have to have some rules here.

Next up is Richard Gere. What can you say? Pretty Woman, Officer and A Gentleman...ummmm...Chicago, Runaway Bride (i liked it) and lots of other stuff the man is just sexy.

I admit that Patrick Swayze hit this list mainly because of Roadhouse. I love that movie. My roomie totally disagrees but it's my damn there! Ooooo...I just remembered Ghost and how could I forget...Dirty Dancing! "Nobody puts Baby in the corner!"

Ooooo....George Clooney! Oh Brother Where Art Thou! (loved it)....all those Oceans movies and who can forget E.R. The man is total eye candy (as are they all).

Die Hard...1, 2....12.whatever.....Bruce Willis is flippin' sexy. Yeah, he's done other stuff but I told ya I don't get out much.

Harrison Ford.....two words Indiana Jones. Yep, love those movies.Although I must confess that when I heard he was filming a new one I was shocked. And then there is ....shoot..what's that president movie...Air Force One. I also liked him in Witness and....ooops almost forgot the Clear and Present Danger movies (actually I completely forgot it, my sis remembered).

Mmmm...Martin Sheen!Sexy, sexy, sexy! Let's see there's that tv show West Wing but before that....well...all kinds of movies Apocalypse Now, Gettysburg, The American President (OMG! Love that movie...and Michael Douglas should be on here just for his part in that movie!) Oh yes! And Martin gets big bonus points for having those sexy, sexy sons...whew!

Now some folks will not be into Morgan Freeman being on the sexy list. But really the man is FAB!!! And he is over 70, the man is looking dang good!Check him out in Lean On Me, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Outbreak (LOVE that movie), Along Came A Spider...the list goes on.

Cary my sis said "No dead guys!" but I insisted cause I love Cary Grant movies. So we agreed to include Cary as an honorable. LOVED him in so many movies...The Philidelphia Story, His Girl Friday, The Bishop's Wife, To Catch a Thief and of course the big one An Affair to Remember! (HUGE dramatic sigh!)

Now of course there can be more men on here. I mean I left out Kevin Costner, Micheal Douglas, Keanu Reeves(oooo matrix), Charlie Sheen, Sylvester Stallone(my sister made me add him although now that she has mentioned him I loved him with Swayze in Tango and Cash)...the list goes on.

Feel free to let me know who you would add to the list.

Love, Laughter, Peace and Blessings y'all!
