    oh wow this made me cry.......maybe because today is the 29th anniversary of my youngest brothers death....I saw the post here and thought 3 good things about myself.....god that's hard......yet if you asked me to do that for anyone else it would be so easy.....an important lesson we all need to learn, self love.....its what this planet needs more than anything, once we can love and embrace ourselves we will stop seeing the bad in others as this is all just a reflection of the things we hate about ourselves and I believe that is the answer to all our problems.....so I will try this .....

    I am funny
    I am quite psychic
    I am very caring and loving (to a small group of people as fear keeps my circle small)


    Quote Posted by devplan (here)
    This reminds me about a great story I read many years ago. It goes like this:
    The Good List - Author Unknown

    One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.
    Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about Each of their classmates and write it down. It took the remainder of the class period to finish the assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.
    That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.
    On Monday, she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. "Really?" she heard whispered. "I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!" and, "I didn't know others liked me so much," were most of the comments.
    No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on ...
    Several years later, one of the students was killed in Viet Nam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so mature.
    The church was packed with his friends. One by one, those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin. As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. "Were you Mark's math teacher?" he asked. She nodded: "yes." Then he said: "Mark talked about you a lot."
    After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a luncheon. Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher.
    "We want to show you something," his father said, taking a wallet out Of his pocket "They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you might recognize it."
    Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of Notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times. The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's classmates had said about him.
    “Thank you so much for doing that," Mark's mother said. "As you can see, Mark treasured it."
    All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, "I still have my list. It's in the top drawer of my desk at home."
    Chuck's wife said, "Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album."
    "I have mine too," Marilyn said. "It's in my diary"
    Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out Her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. "I carry this with me at all times," Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: "I think we all saved our lists"
    That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.
    The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life will end one day. And we don't know when that one day will be.
    So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are special and important. Tell them, before it is too late.

    Ok Valerie can I make my wife the 'object of attention' and in doing so, what it brings out of me?

    She is compassionate, which makes me more understanding

    She is delicate, which makes me protective

    She is Feminine, which makes me.....the list is too long but it always ends with a smile

    @Daozan I just reread "Managing Ignatius" which I ordered right after I made my offer to you and received yesterday. It's a great book and a very, very accurate depiction of the insanity of the Quarter back in the day. The insanity's still there, just the wild west aspect has taken a turn toward way too weird for weirdness sake instead of weird because people are being genuine kind of a thing.

    I had loaned my copy to an ex restaurant manager who never returned it. Damn, I have a thing about books. They are on loan. Please return.

    Anyway, the offer still stands. It's an outstanding read.

    1. Charismatic Looks
    2. Creative Genius
    3. Open Heart

    Sounds like an amazing combination, huh?
    Well after 60 years of being envied, hated and punished for having "everything"
    It's almost tempting to want to be ugly,stupid and weak.

    so in answer to the other thread, is humanity worth saving
    I'd say,
    some yes. some no.

    Gurdjieff got it right. those who work hard to develop a spiritual self live on,
    the others utterly die and completely dissapear.

    Antagenet, I'd say you have a fourth (way) good thing also......you live tax free. I'm down with that and for that one, I'd forsake the other three.
