Affirmative

Reactions: 
Well the good news is that we are good to go tomorrow, just a pity some riders never checked their mail or our website and pitched today. Once we get competitors to enter before an event as the rules dictate we may avoid such misunderstandings. I hope my suggestions in this regard are followed through for 2008. Organising a race and not having any indication on entries is madness.
Something to do with all the lists and rules being exchanged this week made me think of this song by Savage Garden, some of the lines are not quite what I believe but in general quite a good set of affirmations for life.

Affirmation :Savage Garden


I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your own happiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse tv evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye


Looking up
the
word on Wiki this is what you get;
An affirmation (from
Latin affirmare, to assert) is the declaration that something is true.
This being so just affirms my belief that having a positive outlook is one of the secrets of being a happy person but it is something that you have to consciously think about every day, it does get easier though and soon becomes part of life like brushing one's teeth... so be assertive and affirm that tomorrow is going to be megaliciously awesome!
"It is always easier to believe than to deny. Our minds are naturally affirmative." John Burroughs (1837 - 1921)
