What's Wrong?

Head spinning?

Do you find that you are running around in circles?

Don’t know what you want to do?

Or what to do next?

Or even what you should be doing?

Are you content?

Do you find yourself wishing for a better life?

  • Or is there an (as yet) undefined desire burning within you?

Do you trust in fate (… it must have been meant to be this way …)

– Or luck? (… If only you could win the lottery …)

— Or do you understand that only you can control the quality of your life?

The life you have today is the sum total of all the choices that you have made during your life.

The choices you make each minute of every day determine the direction of the life you lead.

These decisions also have a direct impact on the lives of those who depend upon you.
OKAY … you know the life you have today.

What will be your life be like tomorrow?

A week from now?

  • A month?

– A year?

— Where will you be five years from now?

_______ … Stand still …
____________________ … for just a moment …
______________________________________ … and think!

If you don’t know where you are now …

or what you want your life to be like in five years …

how can you possibly make good decisions today that will affect the rest of your life?
Time is so precious, and with each passing moment you have less to spare.

What have you done today to improve your life?

Or the life of a loved one?
What choices are YOU going to make – TODAY – to take your life to the level you deserve …

And put a smile on your face TOMORROW?
Whoever or wherever you are, please accept my wish for a better life …

… for yourself,

____________ … for those you love,

______________________________ … and those who love you.
May this Holiday Season find you and yours safe, well, and happy.


Of course the choices we make every day have an impact on our lives, and on the lives of those around us, but most of the time there is no way to know in advance which decision will have the best long-term consequences–even if one subscribes to your idea of carefully planning life. (I tend to think that 5-year-plans are for businesses, not people: I’d never want to make a decision today based on some idea of what I think I’ll want my life to be like in 5 years.)

You seem to be implying that all everyone needs to do is to figure out what they want from life, and everything will fall into place. Nice sentiment, but entirely simplistic and – like most similar sentiments – easier said than done. In short, I don’t feel like you’ve said much of anything.

Or have I missed something?

I think it means

Wait. Are you trying to say my life isn’t good enough?

How did you turn “Happy Holidays” into “Be careful…iIf you make a wrong move today, your life could be fucked forever?”

Anyway, I sincerely hope you have a great holiday… but jeez. That was messed up.

Merry Christmas to you too, Lucy.

I don’t know, I kind of liked it. But I am wondering, Lucy… are you by any chance a high school guidance counselor?

When in danger
Or in doubt,
Run in circles
Scream and shout.


With apologies to R.A.H.

Mostly the typography. It makes my eyes hurt and obscures whatever the sentiment of the message was.

If you send the OP to 5 or more people in the next 5 minutes, all your Christmas wishes will come true. If you don’t, you’ll die of the plague within 3 weeks.

Or so I heard.

This is definitely in the right forum :rolleyes:

a little

yes, definitely

Of course I know what I want to do, I want to make myself dizzy. That’s why I’m running around in circles. That’s why my head is spinning.

Another fast lap around the room

I could reverse directions and run widdershins, I suppose…

Yes, it seems to be working!

::slows, stops:: Is this a trick question??

:confused: just a little nausea and heartburn from the dizziness and running in circles, I think

Maybe. Now that I stopped running, I’m even dizzier than before. Was that the idea?

… Excuse me, but how much longer does this go on?

This is the weirdest poll I’ve seen all week! ::topples over with a thunk::
::rises to hands and knees, wobbly:: OK, I’ve got to see what kinds of answers you’ve been getting so far…

There was. But my doctor prescribed an ointment and it cleared right up.

Uhhh, yeah. The part about *Mudane Pointless Stuff * … :smiley:
(No need to read more into it than what is there.)

trublmakr No way! Professional Driver with way too much time to think about *Mudane Pointless Stuff *…

AHunter3 Bravo! The questions are the answers. (If you figure that one out, let me know!)

::runs and sits in corner waiting for the next round::

… Wait a minute, you did say you were buying, didn’t you?

That would be impossible. :wink:
