Inspirational Dog

Posted on November 19th, 2009 by Clinically Clueless

funny pictures of dogs with captions
see more dog and puppy pictures

I know that this is a funny picture.  I personally love it.  I also love Snoopy and labradors.  The only thing that could have made it better is if it were a black lab.  :-)  I like the caption.  For me almost anything or anyone can be an inspiration to you.  Even Snoopy is an inspiration to me as his character does whatever he wants without thinking “should I?, won’t others think? I’ll look bad, etc…  

Snoopy does what he wants without thinking about what others may say or think.  Granted, he is in his own make believe world.  (Oh, Peanuts isn’t real…well, never mind…)  We also should be mindful of others in a balance, but not to aware of others that it prevents us from being ourselves.  My husband and friend do this very well and they are my inspirations, but so is Snoopy because he also reminds me to dream.

Share an unusual thing, character or someone who is an inspriration to you.

GO! Have a Friendship Garden of Safe People!

Posted on April 28th, 2009 by Clinically Clueless

Continuing on the theme of friendships here in Southern California. I find myself asking, so what is a healthy friendship? The two I ended after more than 30 years certainly were not, in fact, they were toxic. So what does a healthy friendship look like?

A book that I find helpful in describing what is a healthy relationship is Safe People: How to find Relationships That Are Good For You and Avoid Those That Aren’t by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend who are both Christian psychologists. Safe people are those that you want in your life.

Those are the people that make you feel good, allow you to be yourself, encourage you in your strengths and accept you for who you are, despite your weaknesses……

Calling all writers – The washington awards await YOU.

Posted on April 26th, 2009 by Jim

Time for some fun with words here at flowers.

Thanks to Ken in Scotland for emailing us the winners of this year’s Washington Post’s Mensa Invitational which once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition:

1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.

2. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

3. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

4. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

5. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high

Improve yourself – GO! Mind Map with Tony Buzan

Posted on April 16th, 2009 by Jim

Hi from Dubai folks where I’m merrily mind-mapping away!*

*This post could change you life – no money back, no promises, no nothing BUT….

I recently had the pleasure of being a guest of the xerox corporation who hosted an evening with British author Tony Buzan – the inventor of modern mind mapping. His idea was inspired by Alfred Korzybski‘s general semantics as popularized in science fiction novels, such as those of Robert A. Heinlein and A. E. van Vogt.


Buzan argues that while ‘traditional’ outlines force readers to scan left to right and top to bottom, readers actually tend to scan the entire page in a non-linear fashion.

He uses popular assumptions about the cerebral hemispheres in order to promote the exclusive use of mind mapping over other forms of note making. Left brain & right brain working together!

A mind map is often created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added.

Great for summarising key points and improving our memory……
