You can't stop the endless stream of thoughts that run through your mind. Some things you can easily FLUSH. But something's you need to write down to help you. When something is weighing heavy on your mind you should write out the different scenarios and what you will do each way then you will be able to FLUSH IT till you know which scenario you are facing. Just knowing you have a plan no matter what happens then you can forget about it and JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind.

It sure would be nice if you could prevent them from having to go through it. The truth is your words of wisdom may fall on deaf ears. All you can do is try to prevent it then be there if they do it anyways and get hurt. It would be hard to handle if you knew yet you didn't warn them when you could have and should have. Some situations you may face you could not prevent no matter what you know or do. Sometimes all you can do is to prepare for it the best you can so you can prevent as much as you can. The more you know about what is coming the more prepared you will be to deal with it. The truth may hurt but the truth is necessary to prevent you from getting hurt if you can prevent it.

As we watched old movies this weekend we noticed many things from back then were popular again. I actually had old clothes in my closet that were fashionable again. Look in your closet instead of spending money on new clothes. I wandered if the old hair styles will come back in style. I have had the same hair style for nearly forty years. I sure hope family values, thriftiness, and community unity become popular again too. One thing that will probably not come back is the old car styles. Elvis never went out of style along with many other artist and songs that will always be popular to many generations.

As you talk about it you know that something needs to be done about it. You may have ideas that might help improve it but will you do it? If it's important to you will you make it important enough to do something about it? Don't find yourself having to say I knew that would happen and I did nothing to prevent it. You should spend the same amount of time you spend talking about it doing something to make things better. Do more than talk about it.

As we watched a movie from 1968 you could see that some things in it was in style today. Which gives me hope that common courtesy, common decency and common sense could also be common again.

As I look around at all the nick nacks I have collections I have collected over the past 40 years, it makes dusting scary. It makes me wish I would have spent all those years collecting old money instead. Then instead of collecting dust they would have been collecting value over the years. And dusting would be a lot easier too. I wander what my kids will do with all the little trinkets I will leave behind one day. I have offered them to take any collectibles they wanted now instead of waiting but they didn't want any of them. Trouble is I don't want any of them either yet they will remain where they are collecting dust.

When you put yourself first it allows you to be the first one there to help when you are needed. Making sure you come first isn't selfish it's a necessity. In order to be there for others you have to have what you need including the proper rest. If you let yourself get overwhelmed without a break, you will breakdown. Then you will be unable to help anyone. It's nice to help others but you can't help till it hurts you. It's OK to say no. They would rather you say no when you just can't because they don't want to see you breakdown.

I am very disappointed in you Mr. Snoop Dogg. I chose you for a trio with myself and Mr. O'Reilly in my song I wrote to make our neighborhoods safe again. I wrote a song letter titled "Calling Mr. Snoop Dogg, P.S. to Mr. O'Reilly" to spread a positive message. I really thought now that you are older you wanted to make our neighborhoods safe for your own children and future grandchildren. You certainly could reach millions of people that Mr. Bill O'Reilly or myself could not. Now you go and make a video that will promote violence and hate. Why on earth would you do that? You will destroy my songs chance to make a positive difference for my own children and grandchildren. Mr. Snoop Dogg I am asking you to remove those harmful images from your video. For the sake of everyone in the World use your talents and influence to promote peace.

When you walk in a room you immediately feel the supra in the air. Sometimes it feels light and airy but other times it feels dark and stuffy. Your mood is affected by the auora around you. It is also true that the supra you send off affects those around you. Keep that in mind as you go throughout your day. Share your joy with others but keep your anger and negative vibes from spewing on to others. We all have known someone who seems to always have a negative attitude about everything. Don't let them zap your joy. It may require you to avoid them so they don't infect you with their dreary auora.

A mis-understanding can create problems that never existed. Life is hard enough without making things harder on yourself. Make sure you understand things by getting all the facts you need. If you can't find facts to back it up then you have to assume that you misunderstood. You may have heard only part of it but to understand it you need to hear it all. It is better to ask and get all the information needed before you react. Its like hearing only half of a recipes ingredients and cooking it. That's not going to taste any good. It's best to get the entire recipe so you can enjoy it.

As I pulled into the store parking lot I could see a car with the trunk wide open with bags of items filling the parking space behind them. As I got out to go in I saw a spare tire and the tool to change it in the parking space beside it. But no one was around it. As I headed into the store I saw a lady sitting on the curb looking distraught. I knew I physically couldn't help her change it but I did stop to ask her had she called anyone to come help her. Thank goodness she had someone on the way. She had mentioned that they were supposed to move to Michigan that morning to start a new life. I couldn't get the look of sadness on her face and in her voice out of my mind while I shopped. At the checkout counter there was a rainbow of colored lollipops on a display. I felt the urge deep inside to buy her two of them for her long two day journey to hopefully make her smile. I handed her a twenty dollar bill and the two lollipops and told her everything would be OK. As I started to walk away with tears streaming down her face she reached out and hugged me. She told me thank you for the hope. I only wish I had more to give her because to hear her say I gave her hope was a huge gift she gave me.

There is no one you can complain to when something goes wrong. In the old days companies didn't want their reputation ruined because it could ruin their business. All the little mom and pop stores and even large store chains have been forced to close their doors. Which leaves less competition so they don't care about customer satisfaction because they are the only choice to shop at. If you do want a choice to shop where customers matter then support the small businesses so they can keep their doors open so there is competition to keep customers satisfied.

Old habits are hard to break. To change an old habit you have to get in the habit of doing things differently. At first it will take a conscious effort but after a while it becomes a habit that you just subconsciously do. Athletes don't start out at the top of their game. They must practice and practice. A marathon runner has to build up their endurance before they can run 26 miles. Whatever you want in life you will have to work to get it. Doing something once isn't a habit it only becomes a habit of you get in the habit of doing it.

To maintain your over all well being you have to have a little free time to relax and regroup. But too much free time can allow too much time for idle thinking that can let too many negative thoughts to pop up that can weigh you down. You need to find ways to occupy your free time. Finding hobbies that interest you will help keep you healthy. You probably already know that eating right and exercising is important to your health but don't forget that maintaining your thoughts is just as important for your overall well-being.
