MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Part of being a champ is acting like a champ.  You have to learn how to win and not run away when you lose.  Everyone has bad stretches and real successes.  Either way, you have to be careful not to lose your confidence or get too confident.”  -Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic Figure Skater

MICHAEL JORDAN “FAILURE” NIKE COMMERCIAL *******PERFECT!!!  I couldn’t have done this particular blog on a day when I need it more than I do today.  It is 3:25 p.m. and I have been working on this blog since 9 a.m.  I think my computer has a virus because the pages either wouldn’t load, or took what seemed like light years to load.  Then, I couldn’t find a good video for the song of the day.  I’m only writing this because six and a half hours later, I am victorious!  It was strange–all of a sudden, when I was about to go to the store (ha ha…it’s raining now…go figure!), everything started working and it all flowed together within 20 minutes!  See?  “Goonies never say die!” LOL  So many times, I wanted to just throw in the towel and chalk it up as a loss, but I just couldn’t quit.  That’s what made Michael Jordan a champ.  Watching this video made me want to scream, “YES!!!” at the top of my lungs, but we have thin walls in my building and I don’t want to be known as the crazy lady across the hall. 😉  Michael Jordan is a true champ.  He’s had bad stretches and true successes, yet he always remained the same–driven and humble.  Take note.*******  

GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE (THE GOONIES DANCE MIX)  *******Goonies is one of my favorite movies of all time and this dance mix is great!  This just made my day!*******

WORD OF THE DAY

SCHISMATIC

(adjective, noun)
[siz-MA-tik]

1. of, relating to, or engaging in schism (discord, separation or division, especially into factions or within a church): “This one research finding will have a schismatic effect on our entire field of study.”
noun

2. someone who promotes or engages in schism.


Origin:
About 1456; from ‘schism’; originally from Greek, ‘schizein’: to split.

In action:
“Pope Benedict XVI had a ‘friendly’ meeting with one of his fiercest critics – dissident Swiss theologian Hans Kueng, the Vatican and Kueng has said.
Benedict granted a Vatican audience to Kueng, the latest indication that the Pope seems keen to reach out to prominent Catholics who fell from Rome’s grace during the last pontificate.

Last month, Benedict met with the head of the Society of St. Pius X, the schismatic traditionalist movement whose leaders were excommunicated under Pope John Paul II.”

“Pope and dissident theologian meet,” The UK Scotsman (September 26, 2005).
