STUMP Wins It ALL: 5 Life Lessons From A Sussex Spaniel (video)

The odds were against Stump, the ten-year-old Sussex Spaniel, who won the 133rd annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show. AGAINST the ODDS:For one thing STUMP is OLD, a senior in dog years – 10. He re-emerged from retirement after taking a 5 year hiatus from the show ring (Stump won the sporting group in Westminster in 2004). No purpose, no energy, no p’zazz. Poor Stump, a champion at heart, went a wastin’. He spent 19 long, sad days in a pet hospital. Once recovered, Stump hung tight with his handler, Scott Sommer, living the dog’s life! STUMP LONGS FOR THE GREEN CARPET: Five days before this show, Sommer took Stump for one last walk on the green carpet at the Garden. And WOWZER! The old Stump returned, strutting and panting with style. Ears a floppin’. Walking like a champion, happy energy soaring. And, as they say, the rest is DOGstory!Vegas odds expert John Avello, who compiled odds for this year’s Westminster show, gave Stump, the Sussex spaniel odds of 275-to-1 to win it all. Stump proved that attitude reigns supreme. Age is merely a number. And if your ears are floppy and cute enough, you’re a winner no matter.LIFE LESSONS LEARNED FROM A DOG:

  • If Stump can, YOU CAN! (Not win the Westminster; but WIN!!!)
  • Take REALITY and toss it out the window. Odds – shmodds!
  • YOU make your own rules!
  • EXPERIENCE matters; age can trump youth!
  • CLAIM WHAT’S YOURS!!!
  • Be the winner you are; follow your heart, your star, your bliss! Be inspired!Spread the word … NOT the icing!Janice———————————————————————————–Janice Taylor is a Life & Wellness Coach, specializing in weight loss, reinvention, transformation & happiness, author, seminar leader and 50-pound-BIG-Time-LOSER!

    Sweet Anticipation: EATING HONEY with Pooh Bear.

    Just now … while working on my Fill Up On Happiness e-Diet, I came across this quote from A.A. Milne that is so amazing, so useful, so brilliant, I just had to stop everything and post if for y’all right now.
    “Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called. ~A.A. Milne
    What would you call that moment? Sweet Anticipation???
    Spread the word … NOT the icing,

    Recession Proof Your Life: STRESS BUSTERS

    Are you stressed? Irritable? Having trouble sleeping?
    Do you feel like screaming? Crying? Eating??? You are NOT alone!
    In these stressful times, it’s essential to have an arsenal of coping mechanisms at hand – other than food. I mean, really, is there any point in heading to the fridge? Nothing recession proof in there!
    So hang in … Our Lady of Weight Loss has TEN CHEAP n’ EASY THNGS YOU CAN DO TO BUST YOUR RECESSION STRESS that she’d like to share with you. And they’re pretty much free, with the exception of Vitamin C, which is pretty cheap.

  • Breathe. No kidding, take in a few deep cleansing breaths and slow down.

  • Change your routine. If you’ve been sitting all day thinking, get up and get physical. Take a walk, stretch. And, if you’ve been lifting heavy boxes from sunrise to sunset, sit down and think deep thoughts.
  • Keep things in perspective. Practice the ‘this too shall pass’ mantra.
  • Smile and laugh a lot. Every chance you get.
  • Prioritize. Concentrate on one task at a time. Multi-tasking can be nerve-wracking.
  • Don’t put off what can be done today. Get those unpleasant tasks out of the way as soon as possible.
  • Call a friend. Talk it through. Vent. (I use ‘The Five People Plan.’ When stressed or upset, I tell five people about it. By the time I get to the fifth person, I’m so over it and really tired of hearing myself!)
  • Add Vitamin C to your diet. Studies show that Vitamin C knocks out the secretion of stress hormones.
  • Do something creative! Relieve some tension by using your imagination. Garden, read, sing, dance, paint, draw, play an instrument, make macaroni art – anything you can think of that takes you away from the stress and opens your mind to the possibilities.
  • Chant. “Aum Mani Padme Hum”
  • Spread the word … NOT the icing!

    Valentine’s Day JigSaw Puzzle

    Click to Mix and Solve
    There are a few theories floating out there about the origins of St. Valentine’s Day. Here follows my favorite. It comes from Belarus*.
    It is believed in Belarus*, that St. Valentine’s Day originated from the story that upon rejection by his mistress, Saint Valentine was so heartbroken that he took a knife to his chest, ripped out his heart and sent it … still-beating, naturally … as a token of his undying love to said mistress.
    Heart-shaped cards are now sent as a tribute to his overwhelming passion and, of course, suffering. Where there is love, there is suffering.
    So wonderfully dramatic!
    Note: *Belarus is a landlocked country; border by Russia to the North East, the Urkaine to the South, Poland to the West and Lithuania and Latvia to the North.
