    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Very good. Hopefully one day I will have it!
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    Inner Peace

    If you can start the day without caffeine,

    If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

    If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

    If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,

    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,

    If you can conquer tension without medical help,

    If you can relax without liquor,

    If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,




    Then You Are Probably NOT The Family Dog!

    For example, you might decide that the story will be you winning the lottery. You imagine the call and how you will react and what you will say. You hang up after the call and call someone to tell them the great news... usually a partner or loved one. You decide to go out to dinner to celebrate....is there enough on the credit card? You dont have the money yet, the woman from the lotteries said that the cheque would be hand delivered the next day. Do you ring work and say "hey guess what...." or do you just call in sick and not tell them just yet. What about your brother, should you tell him the news now? How much will you give him or your friends?



    In the story in your head, you imagine every conversation, every thing you'll do.

    That would never work for me, I would get into it, the wheels would turn and I would go off on all sorts of tangents. I have to try and just look inside my eyelids, follow the spots and sworls...then I would go off on tangents...sigh.
    I read somewhere they are doing clinical trials on a drug that shuts down the wheel turning so the body can relax and sleep. I would sign up for that trial in a heartbeat. Many a time I am still awake at dawn then crash in exhaustion as the brain can then shut down.

    It's a bit like meditating though Di, it takes practice and you can build up your psotive feelings at the same time.

    My husband is like you guys. I am soooooo gald that I rarely have any issue with sleeping. My head hits the pillow and I am asleep usually within minutes - literally!
