Practicing What I Preach

I finally finished my wall of motivation:

It's a combination of quotes, images and goals.

Now I have everyone from Louisa May Alcott to Henry David Thoreau to Janet Evanovich and the US Marine Corps cheering me on.

I printed everything on my color printer using either quality bond paper or glossy postcard paper that comes pre-perforated so you can rip a normal-size sheet into 4.

No excuses for tattered post-its - I'm looking your way, D.

The only one I forgot was an old fortune: "A handful of patience is worth a bushel of brains."

Brains by the bushel. Very true.


From the only 3 choices that are left, it looks like we will have a president that either:

1) gets angry, loses his temper and, at 72 or whatever, will have a heart attack at the most inopportune moment,
2) have someone who'se main political strategy is to talk about "hope", much like a religion speaks about "faith", and has difficulty articulating precise details on how to achieve that hope (or why to sustain that hope), or
3) gets all weepy and asks for empathy to her personal situation when things go against her.

How did we get to this point? With 330 million Americans, these three are the best of the best? How did that happen? We can't be scraping the bottom of the barrel already, are we?


So, as it is clear that there are only two choices left for the Democrats, here's a tidbit for everyone who is either cheering Hillary or Obama. A sensitive piece of harmony and love (from MAD TV last November or so).
