Have you ever completed a task then completely forgot about it or lost it? It might be nearing the end of the year, but this warrants posting simply because it has been found.
The fact that the Olympics have been and gone and Great Britain (yes we include Scotland, Ireland and Wales when we do well) not only presided over one of the most successful games, won lots of medals AND London was not bombed is testament to the fact that this is a recovered article.
The good thing about finding your lost treasures – especially words that have been meticulously thrown together after a sumptuous meal followed by many medicinal brandies 😉 – is that they are a welcome gift.
Here is the article that appeared from out of nowhere. Late but not forgotten!
Positive thinking is the new must have attitude for 2012
Reasons why 2012 will be a great year.
Like you every year starts off optimistically for me. But this year is special. Why? Well here are my reasons why 2012 will be a great year.
Now that the experts have thankfully re-interpreted the Mayan prophecy it seems all is not as bad as we once were told. So instead of the end of the world most of us can look forward a New Age and to many more years. I was never actually worried because my magic folding fish fortune teller told me that ages ago anyway. However as the Bible Code have predicted the world will collide with a meteor, all my bank cards will expire in 2013 just in case they are right.
The Olympic Games will be held in London. This is definitely good news and some great performances from British athletes. Not particularly looking forward to the 3 hour dash to get on a tube event, but I have been in training and feel confident of getting on the podium. Strange how the BBC has moved to Manchester! Is this a sign?
England football (soccer to my American cousins) team will win the European championship and everyone will forget that Fabio Capelli is Italian and claim that they always had faith in him. Quietly confident that I know the final score, – I suggest you get a magnetic fortune telling fish if you want to know who makes the final ;).
Finally The Personal Development Cafe goes viral. Facebook, Google and Microsoft enter into a savage bidding war and the site is sold for a huge undisclosed sum. Thankfully we get to keep the fortune telling fish.
If you are reading this anytime after the European championships, sadly England did not win – in fact Fabio Capello is now a name consigned to English soccer history. As a result there was a ceremonial burning of the magnetic fish.
However we hope that you adopted positive thinking and that it has had a great impact on your life.
Just to reinforce the saying above, here is an excellent article that explains more about positive thinking and how positive thinking can help change your life for the better.
