  2. I can’t even imagine how rude it would be not to thank someone for a good word or deed they have done for you or someone you care for! I am grateful for that!

    • Sometimes people tend to critique instead of being grateful for the deed…

    • That is so true. I read a post on another site about how the writer was never much of a grateful person in his life. I immediately thought of how opposite that was of you and people like you!

      I can’t deal with people who are always so negative. I mean I have my “down times” but usually I’m pretty even tempered to content much of the time…

    • And you have the choice, so why not be positive? Isn’t your life better when you are happy rather than grumpy? πŸ™‚

    • Oh no doubt you are right, Deb. As I’ve said before, I’m kind of even-tempered most of the time, but I do spend too much time in the doldrums.

      I had to retire from working so early in my life, (the legs). I really loved to work. I never planned to retire…always thought I’d just die while still employed.

      You are right again. It is a better choice to be happier than “grumpy.” I can’t speak for everyone, but I need a sense of purpose or work beyond what I have in order to find my lasting happiness.

    • This is so interesting as I cannot wait to be able to retire…my job has been beyond challenging this past year and I have so much anxiety each day as I leave to go to work…now that the holidays are almost over I am going to dedicate my time to finding another job. I want to write a book of poems and sell it which I am working on, I’d love it if My Daily Grateful Post became syndicated, there is nothing more that I would love than to work from home! We’ll have to figure something out for you…could you do sales calls or survey calls from your home?

    • Well, it surprises me that a person so positive as you has a job they don’t like. I mean you actually hate going to it each day…

      Lots of people don’t like their jobs, but they let that effect some of their other life too. You don’t seem to let that happen. Good for you!

      I wish you the very best in trying to get your book published. It’s a tough road to tread, but stay with it and try not to get too discouraged if it doesn’t happen right away.

      As for me, if I make any money on a job, the gov’t takes away from my social security. I’m only allowed to work some after age 65, but that’s a little ways off.

      I have decided to leave things up to the Lord in full on this matter. If I’m to do something else, let Him guide or show me what. I’ve talked with an Elder of my church about an idea or two and we’ll see if anything comes from that…

      OH…Happy New Year’s Eve, Deb! Man, this year just shot by…in some ways. πŸ™‚

    • Once I leave work I try very hard to leave it behind and enjoy the other aspects of my life. I used to let it consume “my” time but not anymore and I work hard on that, hence the Daily Grateful Post…check out http://www.tut.com, Mike Dooley is one of the people who I have been following, as a matter of fact there is a link on my blog page to him, anyways “like” his Facebook page, he’s starting a 30 day “project” if you will, called Infinite Possibilities, which is the same title as one of his books. Anyways it starts tomorrow, you might enjoy it! He’s one of my favorites. Happy New Year’s Eve to you too! πŸ™‚

      Well, I like the fact that you are able to leave the “work at work” and not let it consume your “my” time! It’s bad enough that you have to give work 8-10 hours or more of your life each day, it shouldn’t rob you of time off the clock!

      As for “TUT,” the positive messages they portray on their shirts are just fine. We do need to have positive and healthy emotions at the head of our lives. And it can be arrived at in many ways including T-shirts, cards, and any number of other ways.

      It’s harder for some than others to incorporate these good feelings into their everyday lives. But if one works at it hard each day, some improvement may take place.

      If I remember his name, I’ll go looking for Dooley on FB. You just stay as positive as you can be, even “on the clock” if you can!

      Yes, it is a great way to start a day, especially if you aren’t too enthusiastic about going off to work or school. I’ve had “services” like that who offer a daily thought to reflect upon before you start your day…

      Hey, how do you feel about the Pats going into the play-offs? I mean I know you think they will win and all, but the problems they have right now are a bit serious.

      I now I feel shaky about Denver’s chances. I’m not sure how Manning will do against a better team than the Chargers…

    • Well it seems that Tom always sprains his ankle right before playoffs…if Edelman plays then we have a great chance, he’s an animal and Tom’s go to guy…we’ve really missed him!! I like our chances…it’ll be interesting to see how Peyton does…wonder if it will be a showdown once again!!! πŸ™‚

      I think there are too many “unknowns” to say quite yet. But Tom and Peyton have enough talent to make any game exciting…with a little help from the other big name players.

      You guys need to block for Brady, and he does need Edelman and Gronk for the passing game to work. The rushing game has got to be addressed by N.E. next year. They are 30th in the league in yards per game.

      Of course, nobody knows about Manning and the Broncos. We have to get a good passing games from Thomas and Sanders. But we also need some consistent 4-6 yard rushes from Hillman and Anderson too. And either one needs to break off a couple of 15 yard plus runs to keep pressure off Manning in the passing game.

      They both will play good games against other opponents I think. And if and when they play each other, it should be a very good game!

    • You sound like a scout! πŸ˜‰ You’re so right though with all that you wrote above. Our running game suffered when Lewis went on IR and then Blount..it was all downhill after that, I mean Steven Jackson…he was great in his day but I don’t know about now! And then some of the game calls have been questionable, they throw it when they should have run it or vice versa…scratch my head! And then of course all the refs have a vendetta against us this year πŸ˜‰ Lol. It should be very interesting…so do you think Carolina is going to win it all?

      Thanks for such a compliment. A few years ago I used to write for a couple of sports websites…nothing big time, but I got kind of involved. I always loved the fact-finding stats and then form some predictions before the weekly games.

      I’m not sure about Carolina. They have some talent of course, and Rivera is a solid Head Coach in general. But they haven’t won me over totally, despite scoring 500 points this season and having given up an avg. of something like 18 ppg in their last 3 games of 2015. They have descent stats, (11th overall in the NFL).

      But I think it could go the way of someone like K.C. They’ve won 10 in a row with a very experienced coach and some very confident players. And few people are talking about them…

      I’ve seen Seattle stumble a bit, along with the Broncos, Pats, and a number of wild cards. Arizona is another “underrated” team in the mix. Now, watch somebody like the Steelers or the Redskins pull off a miracle! Lol…

    • Ha! Interesting, I had not been paying attention to KC, did not realize they have won 10 in a row…hmmm. I really like Cam, there was a story about how after every touchdown he gives the football to a child in the stands, he even gets the balls from his teammates and gives them. Well one week he gave a ball to alittle boy and it was reported that the boy and his father were supposed to attend this game but his father was killed in an auto accident 6 weeks earlier. Well the family thought it would be good for the boy to still attend the game, cheer him up, Cam had no idea of this story he just happened to pick this boy out and hand him the ball…it made the boy’s day as I imagine it would!! Is that a wonderful and sad story all at the same time.

      That’s a great story! I knew that he always gave the TD ball to a youngster in the stands, but this is a great little story the way it all worked out.

      I like Carolina, but if the Broncos were eliminated, I kinda like Arizona on the NFC side for the Super Bowl…can’t get into another year of the Seahawks!

      How about you?

    • Definitely want Seattle out…so either Arizona or Carolina…I like both Cam and Carson, would be a great kind of comeback story for Palmer it they were to win, can’t believe how Walsh missed a 27 yard field goal..that’s your job…that’s all you do…and 27 yards??? I’m sure people are tired of the Pats always being in the Super Bowl too..oh well ho hum, we can’t help it that we’re that good… hee hee…;-)

      I agree with you about Walsh! Yes it was zero degrees and the ball is like kicking a big rock. But a 27 yard FG even in high school football is 90 plus % makeable! And they aren’t paid the $$$ Walsh gets for being a “pro” at kicking! “Come on man…”

      And no offense, but I’m one of those who is tired of the Pats in the Super Bowl. Sorry to say it to your eyes like that, but let’s get someone else in there for a change.

      I wonder if baseball fans were tired of always seeing the Yankees in the World Series years ago?!

    • It’s ok that you’re tired of the Pats being in the SB, I’d feel the same if it was always Denver! And yes especially as a Red Sox fan we were very tired of the Yankees always being in the World Series…but you know if you stop and think about it, really a big KUDOs should go out to all of them for being able to maintain such a high level of excellence year in and year out! πŸ™‚

      Oh I’ll bet going back to work after 5 days was quite a shock to your mind and body! You probably got used to being relaxed and then had to deal with the stress of that job of yours…

      I wonder if some of the work stress is because you are spread too thin? From the sound of it, you DO wear a lot of hats as you say, maybe too many! Can you off-load some of your stuff to others and maybe just check it when they finish? Do you think that may help things a bit for you?

      Hey, there are more and more people working their jobs from home now that ever before! Wouldn’t that be great if you could work that out on your job…

      Or maybe some other way may come up and allow you an opportunity to have that income while working from your home. Hope springs eternal as they say. And it may lead to something…ya just never know!

    • My current job doesn’t have the possibility to work from home, I wish it did. I would love to stay home and write stories and poems all day…I’m carving my path in that direction but it’s so hard to give it the amount of time I want to with working full-time and then on the weekends sometimes too, but I’ll get there!! I want to check into getting some of my poems published as a start, like maybe in Reader’s Digest or something, keep your fingers crossed or better yet light a candle for me! πŸ™‚

      I will give you all of my best wishes and thoughts…and I know you must know this, but it is nearly impossible to get started with publications like Reader’s Digest and such.

      Now, I’m not going to project my “realist” negativity upon you nor your dreams. All I will say is that my mom used to publish poems for years with Highlights and a few other publishers. Her poems would bring her either a rejection letter or a check…for like $25-35 bucks.

      I sold an article once from a “content house”, (I won’t explain what that is now), but it brought me $20 bucks or so. That was from many stories I wrote on many subjects.

      Deb, I simply want you to realize how hard it is to make a living as a writer, no matter how good your material is. But you do need to give it a try in order to see what I mean. I just don’t want you to become disappointed…

    • Thanks Steve I appreciate your honesty and caring. I actually was doing some bookkeeping work recently for a poet and saw the royalty checks and you are right that it’s small but that’s only one facet of what I’d like to do…since I never became a teacher when I was younger I was thinking that I would like to teach people how to be happier…kind of like the Life Coach’s that seem to be real popular now and perhaps along with my Book of Poems, I may write a How To book along with my Daily Grateful Post book along with maybe a novel – Ghost Story – book. I love all things ghosts…and who knows what else…I haven’t quit my day job yet!!! But God wants us to DREAM BIG and EXPECT BIG so I am! But please continue to offer me your honest, “realistic” views I expect nothing less from you as I consider you a dear friend!! πŸ™‚

      I would never give you any advice you didn’t ask for. On the other hand, I’ll always be willing to offer a viewpoint from my perspective, and do so in a very kind way.

      Boy, you do dream big! That’s great!! I like a positive outlook kind of person, and you are just that type! As long as you are committed to your goals, and not afraid to keep trying if at first you don’t succeed…then go for it!

      You do have a pretty big plate there, Deb, and you are filling it up! Again, good for you! Now you keep sharing how things are going and writing your Daily Grateful posts!

      And you are a dear friend to me here as well…

      I have no idea…I don’t really play. Listen, I want to tell you that I’ve decided to make a change and stop posting to this website. I’ve grown kind of tired of writing articles, and am ready to explore something else. I’m not sure what yet.

      You have been a super person to talk with here! You are obviously smart and ambitious and I’m sure you will go on to some bigger things and greater satisfactions in life.

      Thank you for your support these past several weeks and the best of everything to you…

    • When you say that you are going to stop posting to this website do you mean making comments here, or your own blog? If you mean your own blog are you going to take the site down? Whatever it is you are looking for I know you will find it. Trust yourself, your instincts. I heard something yesterday that might give you food for thought, if you could do anything that you wouldn’t mind failing at again and again but keep on doing it because you love it that much, what would it be? And that would be what you should do. It also occurred to me as I read this that we always talked here which I enjoyed tremendously, but I didn’t stop over at your site to read your blogs, other than to thank you for reblogging my post and I apologize for that, I feel badly. I’m going to visit while I can if it is the site you plan on stopping. I wish you every happiness and joy life has to offer, It was such a gift to get to talk with you daily. You know where I am, you’re always welcomed!! And for you…Go Denver!! πŸ™‚

    • Deb, not to worry. Yes I wanted readers on the site, but if they just choose to make comments built on comments, that’s okay too!

      I’m going to leave the site up until probably the end of the month and then I think I’ll delete it. Not sure what all I want to do yet. It’s an interesting thought about what would one do if they didn’t mind failing at it each time. My question would be why would they want to keep trying if they keep failing? Oh, I suppose they just want to see if they can ever make that something work…

      You are so very kind in all you’ve said to me and I appreciate that! Thank you for your suggestions and support. I want you to be successful in any and all of your dreams and in whatever you try to do!

      Go Pats…(this week,) as you say!

    • I think the point was if you truly love doing something and are passionate about it and want to be successful at it you are ok with failing at it initially and maybe many times, because you feel so strongly about it that you will continue to persevere, that’s what you want to be doing…
      Thank you for all of your support too..it means the world to me. Find what you love and do it. Ask God to show you your passion.
