Party Bus

Hello all,

"Party Bus"

Thanks to everyone who came to our Cinco de Mayo party on Friday, always good to let loose a little bit... This business can take it's toll on all of us and we need to have a party every now & then. Speaking of which the golf tournament & party bus is right around the corner so we need to start getting a head count for the bus, golf & dinner.  Part Bus- For $75 you have lunch at the club, fun day on the bus, then return for dinner and raffle. Dinner- For $30 you can join us for dinner and the raffle. We do not need the money yet (will be bugging you in a couple of weeks) but we need to get a head count for both the dinner and bus. Please reply to me with how many you might have in your group. Thanks.

Enjoy the coffee,

"There is a law in psychology that if you form a picture in your mind of what you would like to be, and you keep and hold that picture there long enough, you will soon become exactly as you have been thinking." 

- William James (1842-1910)

Walk into a totally dark room. What do you see? "Absolutely nothing," you say. Now, turn on the light. Where did the darkness go? Really - where is it now? Hopefully you will agree that darkness cannot exist in the face of light.

During a lifetime, we experience many types of "darkness." It may appear in the form of discouragement, fear, hopelessness, grief, ignorance, or poverty. Yet, in every case, there is a "light" in which such darkness cannot exist.

Fear, for example, cannot exist in the face of courage. Education denies ignorance any chance of survival. Grief disappears in the presence of peace-of-mind. Discouragement ceases when hope prevails. Wealth denies poverty its chance. 

No matter what form darkness takes, it cannot exist when faced with its opposite. That also means we have the ability to send darkness on its way at any point in time. No matter how overwhelming the darkness appears, it is our thoughts and our minds that ultimately control the outcome. How powerful is that? 

In the words of several favorite authors: "Think you can, think you can't, either way you're right." "Your life is what your thoughts make of it." "We are what we think about all day long." Finally, in the words of Tom Bodett, from one of his Motel 6 commercials: "We'll leave the light on for you!"
