#AceMediaNews -Aug.28: Nostalgia is a tricky feeling. Sometimes, it brings us exciting new Star Wars movies. Other times it brings us yet another damn Transformers film. For your own life, nostalgia for the old days can feel nice, but it can also hold you back from improving your future.
As business blog Inc. explains, getting too nostalgic for the “good old days” can make us neglect our own futures. After all, if you’re convinced your best days are behind you, you’re less likely to invest in what comes next. As long as you’re alive and physically able, you can always look forward to a new job, relationship, or stage in your life. You just have to look for it:
It’s a terrible, self-defeating temptation, Siebold says, to believe that your best days are behind you. Instead: “Self-made millionaires get rich because they’re willing to bet on themselves and project their dreams, goals, and ideas into an unknown future.” The past, he says, is only there for them to learn from.
Of course, nostalgia isn’t inherently evil. Remembering your college days fondly, or reminiscing about an old exciting job is fine. The problem arises when the longing for your past convinces you that your future won’t measure up to those old times.
Your attitude can affect your reality. If you want to invest in your future, don’t idolize your past.

#AceSocialReport – Aug.28: Hurrah, a new depressing study to make women even more concerned with the number they see as they step on the scales.
Data collected from scientists at the University of Aberdeen showed there is a link between a female’s thinness and how attractive she is perceived. Great.
More than 1,300 participants, both male and female from the UK and nine other countries, were shown 21 images showing females of varying weight and asked to rearrange them in order of attractiveness.
The male and female participants rated the images with very similar results – as body mass increased, attractiveness decreased.
Urgh, whatever. Who needs a thigh gap when you can just have flapjack.

#AceMediaNews – Aug.28: Alex and Stephen Kendrick’s faith-based film argues that domestic abuse can be cured by retiring to a bunker and praying. It’s an odd plan of attack
Is your husband a self-centered jerk? Does he ignore your needs, pay no attention to your adorable daughter, scold you for giving financial help to your troubled sister? Does he have a wandering eye and come dangerously close to committing adultery? Is he embezzling from his job? Well, you should know that it’s all your fault. When you find his behavior upsetting and take him to task you are only protracting the struggle. What you need to do is surrender, go in the closet and pray.
These tactics, say Alex and Stephen Kendrick in their latest “faith-based” film War Room, will bring your husband back to you, and cast Satan from your home. If you follow a precise prayer regimen (which remains vague in the film but all spelled out in supplemental materials available for purchase on the Kendricks’ website) there is no reason to believe that your husband won’t transform back into the man you fell for. He’ll even join your daughter for the big rope-skipping competition perfectly timed for the end of the movie.
