Charles Shultz was one smart guy

If you read my post from Monday then you know I have been a bit frustrated with my job.  So when my aunt sent me this email, it was absolutely perfect timing. Thanks Aunt Steph!!!  

I figured it was something we all needed to hear now and again so I hope it brings you encouragement as we all make our way through this thing called LIFE.

The Charlie Schulz Philosophy
   (This is  marvelous!! Scroll thru slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full effect)

The  following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz , the  creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them. Read straight through , and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the  world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4  Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is , none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These are no second-rate achievers.
They are the best in their fields.
But the applause dies..
Awards tarnish..
Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with..
The lesson:
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 simply are the ones who care the most.

Pass this on to those people who have either made a difference in your life, or whom you keep close in your heart , like I did.
Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in New Zealand !'
