[tweetmeme] I have friends that send me all kinds of messages like this.  This one has many good lessons to remember.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
Mental Feng Shui

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, ‘I love you,’ mean it.

FIVE. When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don’t judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN! . . . When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. . When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY ONE. Spend some time alone.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart

My good friend Cute~Ella wrote a blog today about not being so good about being present.

Like her I am guilty of multi-tasking in my mind.  I think most people tend to let their mind go in different directions while engaging in conversations with others.  I don’t do it to be rude, it’s just hard to turn the other tracks of my mind off.  I find it helps to keep a notepad around to jot down ideas because I’m better at letting the thoughts go if I know I have them documented somewhere and I can refer to them later.

Cute~Ella asked the question can she learn to be just in the moment?

Years ago a friend stated the words:

Live in the moment and don’t keep score.

I have always done my best to remember those words.  He meant it more in the “don’t think of the consequences or guilt of your actions” kind of sense, but I think it also applies to the “being present” concept.

So for today
Don’t think about the extra calories
Don’t worry about being 5 minutes late
Don’t worry about getting wet in the rain
Don’t worry about tomorrow’s blog topic
Don’t think about what other people will think

Tell those that you care about that you love them
you never know if you possibly won’t get another chance….

What have you done lately while living in the moment?

Loaded Questions

Last night Michael and I attended the Times Union’s Baseball & Bloggers event at the Dale Miller Restaurant.   It was a fun evening with a great turn out.  It was out first visit to the Dale Miller Restaurant.  The event was held on the 13th Floor (A.K.A. – P1) and the views were beautiful!!  Mike Huber – the Times Union’s Interactive Audience Manager organized the event.  Job well done Mike 🙂

Baseball & Bloggers - Boston Red Sox vs. NY Yankees

We arrived earlier than most of the crowd along with Amanda Talar and Kari Vanalstine.  Soon after; we were approached by a Times Union photographer who wanted to take pictures of us.  After she took the picture she asked us “Where are you from?”  (Insert awkward silence here)

WHAT A LOADED QUESTION!!

After she left Kari and I got talking about the possible answers.

Where it all stated:  I came from my Mother’s womb.
Where I grew up:  I grew up in Red Hook, NY (Dutchess County)
Since it was a blogging event I could have said my blog: Dozenroses13’s Blog
Where I currently live: Albany County

Kari’s response to the woman was “when?”  (She’s moved around through the years….)

What other loaded questions have you been asked??
