a humdinger tossup

Monday, December 10, 2012

Bet you don't know what a humdinger tossup is. 

You are soooo yesterday.

Okay, there is a reason you don't know what it is. I just made it up five minutes ago. 

A humdinger tossup is when you take all of the negative things that are trying to enter into your life, toss them into the air, swirl them around and let them land as positive things. As you toss one up, just say to yourself, "Wow, that was a real humdinger". If it doesn't turn into a positive thought, then it is not allowed to land.

And while I was tossing things around, I thought I would play with the camera on my new phone. (No, I did not toss it up in the air. It is a good thing) I took these in very dim light. I'm pretty impressed.

It's easy to play Humdinger Tossup. You don't need an app, free or otherwise, which is a good thing, because we all know that I'm So Vintage is not the greatest techie in the universe. 

So, go ahead and try it. Whenever, you think some negative thought, thing, or person is about to take hold, just toss it up and replace it with a positive. 

This may be the next greatest thing. (If my two daughters are reading this, you can stop rolling your eyes now)
