One of my favorite of all Dorothy Parker quotes:
I've never been a multi-millionaire, but I just know I'd be darling at it.
— Dorothy Parker
Me too, Dottie!
Daniel Goleman’s book ‘‘Emotional Intelligence’’ describes seven key abilities human beings need to effectively manage life: the ability (1) to motivate ourselves; (2) to persist against frustration; (3) to delay gratification; (4) to regulate moods; (5) to hope; (6) to empathize; and (7) to control impulse — which sounds like a sub-set of #3.
Personally, I find #3 the hardest. Therefore, when I want to lose a few pounds, I promise myself that if I still want that second helping after 30 more minutes, I can have it, no recriminations. Of course, in that half hour my brain and stomach have gotten in sync, and I can boogie on without those double calories.
What's your toughest of the seven? And what's your secret for prevailing with emotional intelligence?

I've watched this three times now (more to come, I expect), and holler with laughter every time. Chasing the light? Honey, I have a puppy who is literally addicted to chasing them, actually goes into withdrawal when we stop. Lapping up the drink before saving the world? But of course. Enjoy!

I just learned about this installation of 430 fabulous underwater sculptures in Cancun, life casts of local Mexican people. The statues are made from special materials which actively encourage coral to grow. They're designed to become artificial reefs which promote marine life and create areas for corals to flourish and sea creatures to breed and take refuge.

ROZ’S TIP OF THE WEEK: THE SIMPLE REQUEST
Your beloved can’t read your mind. Share what’s bothering you, how you feel about it, what resolution you want. Without the request for solution, you’re just bitching. “Honey, let me tell you what’s going on with me. I’m feeling X about Y, and what I’d like is Z.” Does not invite defensiveness and escalation. If tempers arise, call a short Time Out. Not abandoning each other, just taking a break to GET CONTROL OF REACTIONS AND TURN THEM INTO RESPONSES!
ROZ'S RELATIONSHIP TIP OF THE WEEK: THE PAUSE BUTTON. There's a difference between REACTING (automatic knee-jerk, same ol’ same ol’) and RESPONDING (thoughtful consideration). TIP: install an imaginary Pause Button in your left palm. When you’re about to react thoughtlessly or defensively, you can press it, pause, and CHOOSE to respond mindfully. Duh-simple? Yep, but it works, guaranteed. Turns arguments into discussions. Shows respect for the other person and inspires it for yourself. Cheers!
