We are what we think

Brewton, Cathy 12-13.jpg

“What you think matters.” I read this on social media during the holidays. It made me stop and think about how this is really true.
All of our actions begin with our thoughts which make our actions happen.
Our belief system begins in our thinking. Our self talk happens in our thinking.
How we respond to others happens first in our thinking. Whether or not we believe we can accomplish a goal or a task begins in our thinking.
Our desire to do good or not begins in our thinking. Our brain is truly our power center for the rest of our being in body, mind and spirit.

2017: A look at the good, the bad, the ugly

in
sports 1.jpg

Telling the old man, 2017 goodbye while welcoming the little cherubic 2018 guy taking his place provides the right time to look back over the past 12 months to mull over those things that went well; those that weren’t worth bragging on and those that were just flat out bummers.
I’ve had some of all three and I’m betting you did, too. Let’s get the bad out of the way first so we can gargle and spit the nasty taste out of our mouths.
You ever had a gall bladder attack? Back in late January, abdominal pains sent me to the doctor who ran tests and said, yep, that sucker needs to come out.

Saints, Panthers saga becomes trilogy

in

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton takes a small measure of comfort in New Orleans’ regular-season sweep of Carolina.
It means the Saints (11-5) play the Panthers (11-5) in the Superdome, where New Orleans hasn’t lost a playoff game since 1992 and is 4-0 in the postseason under Payton.
Beyond that, however, the Saints coach asserts that teams evolve over the course of a season as they develop chemistry and adjust to roster or positional changes brought on by injuries.

McCallum takes judgeship unopposed

in

Third Judicial District Judge Jay McCallum is going to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
McCallum drew no opposition in candidate qualifying that ended Friday for the seat left opened when Appeals Court Judge Harmon Drew of Minden announced his retirement. In Louisiana, running unopposed is tantamount to election.
“I’m just really gratified and overwhelmed by the show of support and encouragement we had,” McCallum, of Farmerville, said Friday night.
McCallum said he would continue his district duties until he’s notified when his appellate judgeship begins.
