Tomorrow in Australia

8 Nov

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” –Charles Schulz

Let’s talk about what REALLY matters.  From Charles Schulz via this site to you:

(I’m just a(n editing) middleman.  Without the mark-up! :P)

The following questions are derived from the philosophy of Charles Schulz– you know the “Peanuts” guy!  Now, you don’t have to actually answer the  questions. (Although maybe try?!!)  Just read.  You’ll get the point…

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.  

Or, Bill Gates.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.  

Ha!  Who are you kidding?!!

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America. 

Ditto.  And, thank goodness :P.

 4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.  

Obama.  Bono.  Einstein.  Mandela.  Fermi.   Not Gandhi.  Sartre declined.  And, someday Bill Gates…

5. Name the last six Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.  

Um.  Someone hot?  My TV has posters in it! True story.

6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

I quit baseball with my ex.  Wait.  Did I do baseball?  Hehehe…

 How did you do?

Yeah.  Me too.

We seldom remember the headliners of yesterday. And, these are our “celebrities”– the best in their fields. TRUTH:  Applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten.  And, this is NATURAL.

Trust me.  It has happened to me.

   Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school life.

Work.  Love.  Friends.  Those crazy Russians.  Myself…

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time life.  

I’m not going to name names.  Your footprints are already in my heart.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile. 

Again with the counting!!!  I get it.  People matter.  SO MUCH.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.  

I love you all.  You know who you are…

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Just 5?!!!  A day life is better when shared.

 Easier right?

Except for the quantification of it all!! Hehehe :P.

Simply:  The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the people who care.  About you.  They are YOUR people. 


Be there for YOUR people.
