Life is what you make of it (?)

Here is another example of stupid sayings that prove how enlightened we are. lol

“Your life is what you make of it”. ( I agree)

but than of course there has to be another commonly use phrase that ruins it

“You have to deal with what life has given you”

well?!?!?  Do you make the choices or do you just deal with what “hand you’ve been dealt” ?

lol again complete confusion people have.

Opinions ?

If someone is consciously aware of having Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), could their conscious personality act as a therapist between the other personalities?

Opportunity Self Life (Quote)

” Opportunities are perishable items that must be used before they expire. It is best to take them while they are ripe before they begin to deteriorate. They will be constantly replaced with fresh ones, but why let all the others go to waste?”

Stephen James

Opportunities Obviously Overlooked (quote)

” The problem never is a shortage of opportunities , rather it’s overabundance that causes skepticism. What a shame it is that people can not accept greatness that is easily available without assuming it’s too good to be true”

Understand why it’s hard to understand

I’ve decided that I should include some informative content without my attempted comedic alterations or disguise. This category will be for that purpose only.

The first thing I could think to talk about something relevant to understanding my blog.  So I’m going to briefly explain the psychology that makes it difficult to entertain or accept new ideas.

Don’t panic! I’m not going to make this complicated with scientific or medical research studies, or use medical speech like influence and function by the amygdalae medially within the temporal lobes primary role in the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional reactions….. lol

Only reference I’ll make is this one
Leon Festinger (1957) proposed cognitive dissonance theory, which states that a powerful motive to maintain cognitive consistency can give rise to irrational and sometimes maladaptive behavior.

I’m just trying to show that there is more to the way we think than we are consciously aware of.

The whole 9 yards (fact)

I’m sure many people are familiar with that phrase. “The whole 9 yards”. But I wonder how many people actually know where that saying comes from. I thought it had something to do with football lol

actually it is referring to the us navy hellcat fighter airplane that had 6 .50cal guns which the ammunition belt loaded onto it contained 400 rounds and the belt was 9 yards in length.

So if I pilot unloaded all he had into a target or enemy plane he was giving them the “whole 9 yards”

Verrazano Bridge AND TOLLS

ME BEING CURIOUS!

It is estimated that 200,000 cars use the Verrazano every day!

So at $15 per car, leaving out trucks (axel charge)—- that is about $3 million per day!!!!!!!!

Verrazano aside, let take a look at the revenue generated from our (NYC) tolls

DON’T FORGET TO INCLUDE THE (000s) lol

So as you can see the revenue estimates from 2013 is in excess of $1.6 Billion!

JUST IN CASE ANYONE WAS INTERESTED IN THE OPERATING EXPENSES —- IN  2011, THE TOTAL operating expenses decreased for the third year in a row. Expenses in 2011 decreased 6.4 percent from 2010 to $358.8 million!

That leaves a pretty large revenue stream, probably one of the city most profitable. Wonder where that money goes lol

Too much time

It’s not that I have too much time on my hands. I just use more of it than most, trying to avoid becoming a victim of wondering where the time went.

MUSIC IS THE ANSWER

MUSIC IS THE ANSWER

**** TRANSLATION: IF THINGS BECOME TO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND, THAN YOU  HAVE BECOME TO OVERWHELMED AND FOCUSED ON THE PROBLEM. MUSIC IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEMS AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT HAVE A DISTRACTION FROM A THOUGHT PROCESS THAT IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.

THIS SONG EXPLAINS TWO VERY IMPORTANT ELEMENTS OF PROBLEM SOLVING….

FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT IS THIS SONG TALKS ABOUT THE SIGNIFICANCE OF BOTH FOCUSING ON THE IMPORTANT THINGS WHILE IGNORING THE IRRELEVANT IN ORDER TO SUCCEED IN YOUR SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH. AS A REMINDER, IT SAYS THAT WHEN THINGS SEEM LIKE YOU CAN’T TAKE NO MORE AND YOU ARE READY TO CALL IT QUITS, THAN YOU SHOULD KEEP ON DANCING (MOVING FORWARD)!!!!!  MAKE SURE YOU ARE CHOOSING WHAT IS WORTH THE ATTENTION!

SECOND POINT IS JUST A REINFORCEMENT OF THE FIRST! KEEP ON MOVING FORWARD WHILE YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR THE ANSWER. YOU CAN KEEP SEARCHING FOR THE ANSWER AS LONG AS YOU DO IT CORRECTLY.

AS LONG AS YOU DON’T FORGET WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO—- I’LL (WE’LL) BE WAITING FOR YOU!

Danny Tenaglia + Celeda – Music Is The Answer (Dancin’ And Prancin’) lyrics

Music is the answer to your problems—
Keep on moving then you can solve them—
If you feel that you can’t take no more and your feet are heading for the door, then keep on dancing and prancing.
Grooving—
Keep on moving
Flying—
Stop you’re crying—!
Choosing while you’re cruising—

Music is the answer to your problems—
Keep on moving then you can solve them—

At 12 midnight I’ll be waiting for you, so don’t forget what you have to do—!
Got to keep on dancing and prancing
Grooving
Keep on moving
Flying
Stop you’re crying
Choosing while you’re cruising.
