BG’s Positively Speaking

Making The Count Down Count

Doesn’t it feel that we live our lives in a perpetual countdown? There’s always something we are counting down to. We count the months to our next vacation, weeks to our birthday, days to the next game, hours to date with the one we love and the minutes to the end of our workday. But the grand-daddy of them all is the New Year’s Eve countdown. Millions of people worldwide participate in this annual ritual, spending hours, often outside in freezing weather, to welcome the hope, promise and potential of a new year. Most of those millions return to the same old grind a few days into the new year. The coming year’s hope, promise and potential are left behind with the balloons, streamers and noisemakers. A few days later, most of those who made resolutions will have forgotten them or postponed them to next year.

Imagine what could be possible if we harnessed all that enthusiasm and excitement of New Year’s Eve and applied it to our lives….. TODAY. Do you think it would make a difference in your life? Of course, it would! Applying that energy, excitement and enthusiasm to MAKING the coming year better would have an extraordinary effect. When you apply that amount of power, consistently and persistently, to anything you do, it will yield results you have only dreamed of. As the end of the first quarter of 2024 comes to a close, ask yourself, “Where do I want to be and what do I want to achieve by the end of this year?”

Then wrap that goal in the same enthusiasm you had on New Year’s Eve and see the potential of the year ahead fulfilled ……………….

Make Your Countdown Count!

Another Wife?

At the pre-birth class for couples who’d already had at least one child, the instructor raised the question of how to break the news to an older child. “Some parents tell the older child, ‘We love you so much that we decided to bring another child into our family.’ “But think about that for a second. Ladies, what if your husband came home one day and said, ‘Honey, I love you so much I decided to bring home another wife.’?” One of the women immediately asked, “Does she cook?”

Short & Quick

  •  I asked my friend when his birthday was, and he said, “March 1st”.
    So I walked around the room like a soldier and asked him again.
  • I left my job today. I couldn’t work for that man after what he said to me.
    He said: “you’re fired.”
  • Daughter: “How do I look, Dad?”
    Me: “With your eyes, sweetie.”

She finally realized that she had dominated the entire conversation on her grandchildren. “Oh, I’ve done all the talking, and I’m so sorry. I know you certainly have something to say. Please, tell me… what do you think of my grandchildren?”
