Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Wisdom of Larry, the Cable Guy

1. A day without sunshine is like night.
2. On the other hand, you have different fingers.
3. 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.
4. 99 percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name.
5. Remember, half the people you know are below average.
6. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.
7. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
8. The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese in the trap.
9. Support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.
10. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
11. Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.
12. If you think nobody cares, try missing a couple of payments.
13. How many of you believe in psycho-kinesis? Raise my hand.
14. OK, so what's the speed of dark?
15. When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
16. Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.
17. How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?
18. Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines
19. What happens if you get scared half to death, twice?
20. Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?
21. Inside every older person is a younger person wondering, "What the hell happened?"
22. Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would all fall off.
23. Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
24. Life isn't like a box of chocolates. It's more like a jar of jalapenos. What you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

Unexpected Surprises

I will be reprinting stories that show how we can take control over the unexpected occurrences in our lives by continuously having the "right" attitude. Following is such a story: (Please feel free to submit such examples to me for reprinting. If you have a URL I will link your story back to your site as long as it does not have any inappropriate material or is overly commercial in scope.)

Positive out look in life is essential for greater joy in life. It's like taking our blinder off. We have choices in every situation in our lives. We can let these choices destroy or strengthen us.

Just four days ago I had a very unexpected surprise in my life. My husband and I were at the Emergency room with our very sick seven year old at 3:30 AM. We really didn't know what she had. To our surprise we were told she has Type 1 diabetes. Diabetes had never crossed our mind.

We were so thrown off guard! I knew almost nothing about diabetes other than that diabetics have to inject themselves with insulin and they can't have sugar or very little of it.

I have a passion for learning but to learn about diabetes was not one of those things I had planned to learn so soon. But these past four days I have learned what diabetes is, the two types of diabetes, how to take care of someone with diabetes, how to take glucose count, the symptoms of diabetes, how to administer insulin, learn the ratio of insulin to carbs intake.... etc. Does the knowledge of our seven year old having Type 1 effected us? Absolutely! It will effect us financially, the way we eat , the we cook, our schedules... and in everything!

I figured we have two choices. We could look at it as the most unfortunate thing that could happen to us or be grateful that we live in a time where technology is so incredibly advance and we are not alone. I take the latter! Like the saying goes, "When we are given lemons, make lemonade." Yes we were shocked but it has been an incredible four days for us to learn how we can best help our daughter to live a life of health and vigor with her condition.

It is a choice we make to let those "Unexpected Surprises" either to let them destroy us or let it become a strength to us. Life is too short , so why not make the very best of it no matter what unexpected surprises comes your way!
