I’m in a hurry and don’t know why

I heard this song on the radio the other day and knew it had to be a blog topic. Alabama: “I’m in a hurry to get things done.” How many of us are “in a hurry to get things done” or “rush and rush until life’s no fun” and even are “in a hurry and…

YouTube music videos can make you smile

Music soothes the savage beast. Have you ever just had a song pop into your head?  I’m sure many of you have.  Does it come out of nowhere, or is it the result of something someone said or something you saw? For me, it’s both.  Usually, it comes from something I’ve read on Facebook.  It…

Today I am sharing something from a FaceBook Friend… By Christina Dawson A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy…

Emotion begets Emotion

I was wondering why some people laugh when others laugh, or cry when others cry.  I actually did a quick internet search and the topic wasn’t on the first page (or the 2nd page) of returned suggestion.  Interesting. So, last night we were watching Survivor, my husband likes it and I get drawn in, grin. …

Over thinking it

Someone recently presented the question:  Who is someone you admire and have always wanted to meet?
