Every day you wake up to enjoy each day is a blessing. Some days you have to face challenges. The other day I noticed that I was facing one challenge after another. As each challenge came my way throughout the day, I would face it head on then JFI out of my mind. Then one after another they came that day. As they came I would deal with it then JFI to keep moving. By the time bed time came I was physically and mentally exhausted. It was a day I was thankful it was over and thankful I knew how to JFI as the challenges were coming one after another all day. I hope you too are able to FLUSH as many times a you need to whenever you need to.

When you say to yourself "I am tired of always thinking about this", it's time to Just Flush It. When something weighs heavy on your mind it can be a heavy burden to carry throughout your day. It would be the same as if you tried to carry actual heavy sandbags everywhere you went. That certainly would make no sense. You know you should get rid of the sandbags because they serve no benefits. They simply just make getting around much harder than it needs to be. Don't carry negative thoughts that are weighing heavy on your mind either. That will only make it harder. Just Flush It and lighten your load.

After you get a good haircut you actually feel like you lost five pounds even though the amount of hair that was cut off didn't even weigh an ounce. With the weight of the hair off you look like you got an instant facelift for free. You even feel more energetic and motivated to get up and get things done. Which makes it best to get a haircut first thing in the morning. Funny how a simple haircut leads to getting things done just like simply FLUSHING away every little negative thought at a quick glance before it weighs heavy on your mind and prevents you from getting anything done at all.

Its amazing how much lighter you feel when you get your hair cut. When you find a barber or stylist that cuts it just the way you like it you won't let anyone else cut your hair but them. And when you go and you find out they don't work there anymore it sends chills through your body as you will have a stranger cut your hair. They cut it differently and didn't quite understand how you always get it cut. Even the best haircut looks not so great the first couple of days so afterward you are horrified when you look in the mirror at home. Sometimes after a few days you look in the mirror and realize her mistake looked so good that you knew you now had a favorite hairstylist again and a new hairstyle. In life there are many times when you are hit with things that make you uncomfortable but after you accept it you will be curious to see just what benefits the change will bring you. Some to n we change can do you good.

We all could place blame on someone or something but the truth is you have no one but yourself to blame for your actions today. For example many people start listing what their parents did or didn't do as an excuse for their bad behavior. Even though they are grown adults that no longer live with their parents. Some blame the government and some even blame it on the moon. I wander if they really believe what they are saying. Because those that they say it to don't blame anyone but them. You can't learn from your mistakes unless you admit that you made one. You have to learn from your past negative experiences then JFI. We all will have negative experiences in our lifetime. Like the church sign said "It's OK to sit on your pity potty every now and again just be sure to FLUSH when you are done."

You could if you would stop telling yourself that you can't. Simply because if you keep saying it then you won't because you will never try. When you were very young, you knew learning to ride a bike would be hard. But you couldn't wait to try it. You knew you would fall and possibly get hurt. But you also knew that if you just kept trying you would be able to ride the bike. Therefore you knew it was the only way so you just did it. So remember before you say you can't do it STOP yourself. Because the only way you will know if you can do it or not is if you try to do it. Don't be your worst enemy instead FLUSH away your doubts so you can be your biggest cheerleader throughout your lifetime.

Life is full of curves and mountains to climb. There may even be boulders dropped in your path. You will have to go around them to stay on track. Don't forget to keep in mind where you plan to go and find a new way to get there. Sometimes the boulder was there to get you going in the right direction.

The old philosophies You can't have a feeling without first having a thought and You are what you think you are, came to my mind as I was writing my Just Flush It books. I was also inspired by the popular sayings when I was young like Stop the Insanity and Yes you can slogans. Those slogans are meant to help you understand how you should look at negative thoughts when they pop up in your mind. Then one day I saw the church sign that said "It's OK to sit on your pity potty every now and again just be sure and FLUSH when you are done." I realized that there is an endless stream of thoughts in our minds and if a negative thought pops up you got to Just Flush It out of your mind. Peace of mind really is just a FLUSH away. It has been said many ways but in the end you have to find what works for you so you can JUST FLUSH IT.

The Scientology Aftermath as told by Leah Remini is a perfect example that keeping something fresh on your mind will prevent you from seeing what is right in front of you. I am hoping that Leah Remini and the group of former Scientologists will form their own group than can make the World a better place like they thought they were doing. They can call it Humanology. If they each tackled a project in our society that they had a passion for or skills to do it with the commitment they have shown then one project at a time they will make the World a better place. Whether it's to improve our schools, building a park, help the homeless, help pass legislation, or finding a cure for diseases it will make a World of difference to many. The World has already benefited from her show by putting the importance of family bonds on everyone's minds.

The longer you put off something that you are dreading the longer you are stressed over having to do it. The sooner you get up and just do it the sooner you can JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind. When you keep putting it off the constant nagging stress builds up. It literally squeezes the Life out of you as your blood pressure rises causing pressure on your organs. The things you dress the most won't even matter if your dead. Those are the ones you want to quickly get done so you can Just Flush them out of your mind before they have any chance of doing any physical damage.

There are many mornings when you have trouble getting started. But when a winter freeze storm blows in there are entire days that it is hard to get started until the storm blows by. It's a good time to spend time with your family as you all stay indoors to keep warm. Cooking helps keep the house warmer besides warming everyone from the inside. Bedtime gets earlier as you can't wait to crawl under the warm blankets. This storm will be around for a few days which means at some point we all will have to go out in the freezing weather. Bundle up to stay warm. The thinner each layer you put on is the better chance you will have to be warm yet still be able to freely move your arms while you are out. Some people walk around all stiff looking like the girl on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory after she had a blueberry treat.

Today I took down the Christmas tree and packed it back in the closet. I didn't buy any new decorations so it fit nicely back in there. Last year time flew between one Christmas and the next. But the older I get I want time to slow down. As you age you realize that everyday that passes is precious and the slower it goes the more time to enjoy every precious moment while you can. Just when you get old and figure things out your body starts to give out. I still get mad that so many people said fifty is the new thirty because honestly I am fifty and all I can say is you wish you were still thirty.

You know 2017 is going to be your year. If you find your mind bringing up hassles from 2016 Just Flush It out of your mind and keep it in your past. Happy New Year.
