I have just finished my Philosophy class for this term, so I am feeling all energised and will be interesting to see what I post next week!!

Here is a little ditti for all to ponder upon:

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win but you think you can't,
You can almost be certain you won't.
If you think that you'll lose, you are lost,
For out in the world you will find
Success begins with a person's will;
It's all in the state of the mind.
If you think you're outclassed you are;
You've got to think high to rise.
You've just got to be sure of yourself
Before you can win the prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To a stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the person who wins
Is the person that THINKS they can.
- Anon.

I am visiting your site from Octamom. I love it! I recently began blogging and I am finding it is so helpful to read other posts about life etc. I loved your thinker post and the Flickr mosaic. I will return to read more of your posts. I am 47, kids have flown the nest. I look forward to reading your posts again!

Yes, it is important to take action instead of sit back and wait to happen. This is my way of thinking these days. I know it is only going to take me forward.

Hooray for you for finishing your class! I am in dire need of beginning a master's degree program, but time is not something I have much of these days. I'm sure I would manage... but how?

I like the poem you posted. It would be something good to share with my students.

Have a great week. I guess you get to relax before your next class begins?
