I LOVE The Amazing Race -- Great Finale!

I love The Amazing Race. If you haven't seen it, hope that they make yet another series of it and if so, watch it. Why do I love it so much? There's a lot to be learned from it. Sometimes you get a flat tire. Sometimes your taxi driver says he knows where you are going, but he doesn't. Isn't that life?

Sometimes a task appears easy for everyone around you while you struggle and get left behind. And how do people cope? Do they turn on their partner? Do they give up or keep trying? Do they keep a sense of humor? Do they tell their friend not to worry about making a mistake. Tell their friend that they love them no matter what. It's an awesome show.

Tonight again a great pair won. I won't post the names, because I understand that it's not broadcast the same time every place and I know as a fan, that I'd be incredibly irritated to see the winner preannounced.

Before I saw the show I was debating whether to check tomorrow morning and see if I had achieved my first goal stated in an earlier post, which was to put on the green and black herringbone dress slacks. be able to tuck a shirt (regardless of how thin) into those pants and wear them to work for the day. I was thinking earlier that if I tried and found I wasn't there yet, that I might be discouraged. But I won't. It will be just like an Amazing Race event, where you run up to the judge on a particular step and say "Is that it? Can I proceed yet?" If the answer is no, all it means is you have more work to be done. That is not a cause for concern. Just keep going! Don't waste time looking around to see where your competition is. Just keep going! Say to yourself, "I can get this. I can do this."

Talk to you tomorrow!
