Those Two Little Words

Hey, Wake up! It’s Lighten Up Monday! Sometimes the behaviors that limit us are complex and require time and counseling to resolve. Other times we are just avoiding the obvious and prolonging the agony.

In those moments we need to follow the advice of Bob Newhart. This makes me laugh every time I watch it. It also makes me pull up my big boy pants and get on with life!

Pace Yourself

kd6.28.17In a long-distance race, it is important to pace yourself. I joined the track team in high school and trained to run 800 meters—about half a mile. On the day of an important track meet, I was ready to go.

This was a special day because my girlfriend was in the stands. I confess, I had never spoken to her, but I wished she was my girlfriend. And winning this race might have attracted her attention and her affection.

Car Fights

Signs of the Times

An Optimistic Look into the Future

shutterstock_43427020Signs are designed to catch our attention. They alert us to danger or promote some product. Some signs, however, defy understanding. The following are signs found in real life:

  • On a bag of Fritos: “You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.”
  • On packaging for a Rowenta Iron: “Do not iron clothes on body.”
  • On a Korean kitchen knife: “Warning. Keep out of children.”
  • On an American Airlines packet of nuts: “Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts.”
  • On a Swedish chain saw: “Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.”

Wait there’s more! Thanks to Bob Gallagher for reminding me of this post.
