NOTE: My friend Paula sent this to me, and while I do not believe in chain letters, this message is so good I want to send it to everyone who reads Menupause. If you don’t want to forward it, I’ll never tell. It is actually a good message for the New Year.

Request: Send me your favorite piece of advice from this list. Mine is #17. I’d like to take a poll to see which ones(s) are the favorites. ellensue


There’s some mighty fine advice in these words, even if you’re not superstitious. This Lotus Touts (Good Luck) has been sent to you for good luck from the Anthony Robbins organization. It has been sent around the world ten times so far.  Please do not keep this message.

The Lotus Touts must leave your hands in 6 MINUTES. Otherwise you will get a very unpleasant surprise. This is true, even if you are not superstitious, agnostic, or otherwise faith impaired.

TWENTY- ONE -  Spend some time alone.
