Always pick cocky over humble

If you have the choice between humble and cocky, There is always time to be humble later. , once you’ve been proven , horrendously , irrevocably wrong.’ Kinky Frieidman

As some of you know I will be out of a job in six months to a year. My company has two distribution centers and one is closing. Today I had a meeting with Human Resources and did something I have not done in 37 years at my job raised my hand at a meeting, gasp.

Let me explain the rumor mills were running rampart all week. A lot of facebook , and here say, and tons of gossip was floating around . I wanted the official word from the official channel. So I got cocky , first time in my career, and spoke up , I held my breathe and got. ” That was an excellent question !” from the Hr .rep. phew . Sometimes it pays not to be humble. By the way the answer was just as excellent and a couple co workers thanked me for being brave.

Later in the meeting another topic came up one I had insight to . So I texted Hr with a solution to their problem after the meeting . Yes little old timid me.

I have come to realize that quiet timid humble me may not get hired at age 55 , even with 37 years of experience. But cocky me , the one to step forward and ask questions and get answers and maybe make mistakes well that girl, there , man she is going places!!!.

So remember it’s cocky over humble, have an awesome thankful Thursday and please don’t forget to look for Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living , in your travels.

oh and if your looking for a quick pick me up for when your feeling the blues try a nice walk followed by getting chocolate wasted . On Ovaltine and Hersey syrup and lactaid milk of course.

Look on the bright side

” You got to look on the bright side , even if there ain’t one.” Dashiell Hammett

I believe there is always a bright side . There are days when you really have to search it out. Then there are days when happiness walks right in front of you but you never even notice.

Keep making dreams and goals , yeah life is hard. Sometimes you get to see rainbows and silver linings . First you must believe.

While your looking for the bright side remember to look for Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

Do a little bit of good

” Do a little bit of good where you are; it is those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world. ” Desmond Tutu

Truth be told I have been a little bit stressed lately. It’s getting slightly harder to sleep and stay asleep. My concentration is lacking , and my motivation is missing.

I have been combating this by walking as often as I can outside in nature, Listening to my ipod. Doing my arm exercises religiously, and going to physical therapy. I am even learning Italian as a way to divert my busy mind.

As most of you know stress can do some major damage. Lucky for me a former co worker . Mr. Robert Rivest can help with this . He has complied some tapes all free on tai chi, laughter yoga, and breathing exercises. They are easy enough for anyone to accomplish , and they really do get rid of stress .

So while your out there having a super Saturday why don’t you give these a try . Remember as always to look for Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

Here is what my friend posted on my page. I think you guys will like this.

give someone else some credit

” Screen credit is valuable only when it is given to you. If you’re in a position to give yourself credit , you don’t need it. ‘ Irving Thalberg

Thank you guys for being the best friends out there. Thanks for caring and going the extra mile. Thanks for brightening my day. Thanks for the ideas and encouragement, the pats on the back . Thanks for the concern of the loss of my job and my frozen shoulder, Thanks for being there for the loss of my aunt , my father in law and my dad.

So sorry I haven’t been able to visit your pages as often as I would like. who knew a little thing like a frozen shoulder could make typing that much harder. Watch out when I am a hundred percent again I will hound you to the ends of the earth .

So on this thankful Thursday I am thankful for so many things. A house a great family a job(for now, for another 6 months to a year). And some super spark friends .

Thank you for so much . just do me one tiny favor make sure to look for Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

Do it yourself

The Lynx philosophy is ” laugh in the face of danger ” Oops. Wrong one. ” Do it yourself.” That’s it, Linus Torvalds

Would be nice if we could laugh in the face of danger, Instead we can only hope that it all turns out okay. Well the only way to get there or anywhere for that matter is to do it yourself.

Yes no one can take the journey for you. No one can make sure you get there on time. No one can ever do the same job as you in the same way . It is all in your hands, Your goals , your dreams , your wishes all belong to you,

So do your best everyday ,at everything you do. Don’t take shortcuts unless you are sure you will get the same results. Work hard and harder still. Be the best you , you can be. Own up to your mistakes . Shore up your weaknesses.

Be a firecracker . What ever you do, do it yourself , because there is not anyone better at being you .

As always look for Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

Push me pull you

If you got something you don’t want other people to know , keep it in your pocket .” Muddy Waters

My daughter announced that she was going for a walk this morning, but she may walk again tonight when it was cooler. I jumped on the chance and invited myself. I knew later the heat would get to us both . She said she was planning on listening to her ipod and that meant no talking.

I was a little disappointed , but was happy to listen to my music also. Truth be said , we often treat each other as friends and equals . When we return to our mother and daughter roles well , when me and my daughter start talking , someone usually gets hurt. Not intentional by any means but it is bound to happen.

That’s where I learn I am old , and she usually says something that makes me want to send her to her room. Or I forget she is not my age and say something embarrassing about her Dad.

Today it was just our style that got in the way. As soon as we get down the street she announces she wants to walk for an hour. It was very hot and I wasn’t prepared. She also took off like a jack rabbit . I after a day in the sun at the beach yesterday , was a tortoise, I even got an eye roll when I waved to a neighbor. I knew we would never make an hour at the pace we were going and I kept trying to slow her down so I could breathe , but she was having none of it.

Between our tug of war and the oppressive heat we did make 45 minutes of walking. Farther than I thought and she didn’t seem to upset by not making the whole hour. We both had workouts after to do. I was happy we managed to keep our issues in our pocket and push and pull each other to a great workout.

As always remember to be on the lookout for Hugs , Happiness and Healthy Living
