Funny how you know you are on time when you head out in the morning the school bus is just rounding the bend heading for the stop sign. Followed by when you reach the end of the driveway the same black car passes by. You get behind the same school bus that stops to pick up kids three times along the way. I often wandered if those that I see when I am on time see me and that helps to know they are on time. I had been on this schedule for years but had only months ago realized that the bus, myself and the lady in the black car had the same schedule. I wander had they noticed me on that schedule for years? I bet if you pay attention you will see that your schedule is the same as others in your neighborhood.

Now to some people a fortune cookie is merely something to eat. To others they look forward to reading them hoping to hear some words of wisdom that gets them thinking. And for a few they play the lotto numbers hoping they were given the winning numbers. Every day in Life is like a fortune cookie. You can choose to look forward to any moment of it to get out of it what you want to get out of it. You have a chance each moment to enjoy it or not and if you decide to look for what's wrong each moment then you will find it. What does a fortune cookie bring to you? What will you look for as you go through your day?

Have you ever had a Bee run you off your porch and stand guard so you can't get back to your front door to get away from it? Every time it flies away and you make a move it appears out of nowhere making you retreat to the yard. After I waited for what seemed like an hour my son came out to see what was taking me so long. As the front door closed behind him and he was standing at the edge of the porch and he started to ask what was taking me so long, there just inches from his nose the large bumble bee hovered stopping his words in mid sentence and sent him running in the yard now trapped there with me. I can only imagine the huge laugh the Bee was having that at only one inch big he could scare off two five foot humans.

The weather sure is unpredictable. Especially when you are working on an outdoor project around your house. It sounded like a quick weekend project to tear down the porch rail paint it then put up a new one. But every time my husband got the saw out to make the rail it would rain. Every time he had the time to paint the porch it rained. And here we are again with half of the rail up and here comes the rain. Life is just as unpredictable as the rain. Things happen in Life to alter what you had planned. Like the saying says when one negative thing seems to happen after another in someone's Life, "When it rains it pours!" But you just got to keep getting up and shaking it off and move on.

People run around at such a fast pace thinking they have plenty of time to relax and enjoy life later when they are old. They see the life expectancy is 72 and assume they have time. Well I Know first hand that you never know what age you or someone you love will die unexpectedly. My brother was 19 my Mom was 25 my sister 43 and my dad 57. In the last month I have had to endure the pain of three deaths and none of them expected to die in their early to mid fifties. So that is why you need to slow down rest your mind and body as well as take the time to sit and enjoy those around you that you love. Life expectancy may be 72 but anyone at any age could die unexpectedly.

Don't make a "To Do List" that is so long it stresses you out to the point where you get immobilized and get nothing done. If it is something you can quickly do then "Just Do It" to keep your list doable. If it doesn't really matter then put it on your maybe list not your"To Do List." If it is something you can't do then don't put it on any List, "Just Flush It" so you can focus on what you need to do. Stress is harmful to your mental and physical health. So don't make a "To Do List" so long that all you do is stress yourself out making it impossible to do anything.

If only you knew how much time you were wasting thinking about how or why negative things had to even happen. There are times when those that have hurt you don't even realize they had hurt you. Other times they don't care that they hurt you. And sometimes it had to happen to get you where you needed to be and it was the only way you could get there. No matter how or why or by whom you were hurt you hurt yourself over and over again by keeping it fresh on your mind. You got to be like Elsa and "Let it go!" Just Flush It out of your mind.

The most precious memories we have with those we love can come from unexpected moments that happen while we deal with unexpected circumstances. During even negative circumstances you can experience a moment that you both look back on one day and share a laugh over. Getting full of anger over the negative circumstance will only prevent either of you from enjoying any moment of it. Things happen in Life that are unexpected negative circumstances and how you react to them determines the outcome. It is what it is but what you do will determine the outcome for you. As you live it make the most of it because Your Life is what you make of it as you live every moment of it as you live every good moment as well as the bad moments. It's your Lifes Journey and your choice whether you enjoy it or not.

In the big picture in your Life very few things are really important. The basics are all you need and all you really have to make sure you have. When you try to make every detail important you will lose focus on what is most important. If you stress over all the unnecessary small stuff then you get so clogged with unnecessary stress. And just like a backup in your sink it will cause a big mess. Life is hard enough without making it harder on yourself by worrying about things that don't even matter in the "big picture" so if it doesn't matter then forget about it so you can concentrate on what's most important to you.

People have gotten use to staying so busy in the twentyfirst century that they don't even look forward to nor plan a few moments to relax. Your mind and body need regular time to regroup and relax to be able to keep going. If you don't plan to take a break when you have run your body ragged then you will cause your mind and body to break down. So either take a break or break down. If your car was low on gas you know you need to fuel up to keep your car running. It is the same for your mind and body. When your body is tired you need to take a few moments to give it the rest it needs or it will break down. Your mind and body screams give me a break or I will break down.

Don't waste your time complaining about what just happened or you will waste the time you have to enjoy.

Enough is enough don't put your self through it again and again. Acknowledge it then "Just Flush It" out of your mind so you can enjoy today instead wasting it. You only have so much time on this earth so don't waste it.
