When you look in the mirror, what do you see?

   It's easy to see it in others but unless you look in the mirror, you can't see it in yourself. 

  If you find yourself going through a tough situation you need to look in the mirror to see that you are tough enough to get through it. 

  If you find yourself angry just look in the mirror and you will see just what other people see when you are angry. 

  The look on your face that other people see, will be what they will base their opinion of you to be. 

  When you walk in a room make sure your face says you are happy to be there. Because the look on your face says a lot.

  If you are angry just remember exactly what your angry face looked like in the mirror.  

  If you want to make someone smile all you have to do is smile. And if you look in the mirror when you are smiling you will look ten years younger. Because a smile is a FACE LIFT.

  When you want to encourage yourself just look in the mirror and say some encouraging words to yourself.

  It may sound crazy to talk to yourself but you have to be able to figure things out for yourself in life. And you know you best so it would be crazy not to talk to yourself and figure things out.

  But you have to be honest with yourself about everything and everyone. But most importantly you have to be honest with yourself about yourself, both the good and the bad that no one else sees. 

  You may be able to hide your true self from others. But you can't deny the truth when you honestly look at yourself in the mirror. 

 The Truth can set you free but sometimes the Truth can hurt.

You can see what is coming

   If you see trouble coming then get out of its way. Don't wait and let it hit you head on. 

  If you feel it in your gut that something about it just isn't right, listen to your gut. It is not always gas, it's your built-in warning system. 

  If you want to avoid trouble you have to avoid it. Which means you have to keep your eyes wide open on your life's journey so you see it and be able to avoid it.

  You may even realize that there are things you thought were good for you that you will just have to change. They may have been good for you before, but just not anymore.

  On your life's journey you will go through many seasons of change. Each stage of life brings different changes and adventures as well as challenges you must face. 

  LIFE is like a rollercoaster and there will be ups and downs as well as twists and turns, that is just LIFE. Just keep your eyes wide open so you can avoid any trouble that may come your way.

  Remember that if you see TROUBLE coming then GET OUT OF THE WAY.

Don't let it fall on deaf ears

 If you want them to hear you then say it in a way they can hear it. 

  If you start off with an angry tone they will not hear you. Because they will choose to not hear you. 

  Your words of wisdom won't help anyone if you say them with an angry tone. The minute they feel your anger they will tune you out in DEFENSE MODE.

  If you want them to listen to what you have to say then make sure you say it in a way that they want to listen. 

  It's not that they don't need to hear it. It's just in DEFENSE MODE they can't hear it. Your words might be exactly what they need to hear so say it in a tone that doesn't sound like an attack which sends them into DEFENSE MODE.

  Remember it's not only what you say but it is also how you say it. 

  Imagine a dog running up to you and barking aggressively at you. Would you want to pet him? 

  If you want them to hear you then make sure your tone doesn't make your words fall on deaf ears. They can't hear you if they are in DEFENSE MODE.

What are you looking for?

   What you see will depend on what you are looking for. 

  What you seek is what you shall find.

  If you look for trouble you will find trouble. If you look for the negative things in everything you will find them.

  If you look for the positive in every situation you will find one. 

  What are you looking for?

  It's all in how you look at it that determines what you see. 

  Just keep in mind that your thoughts make up the reality that you will live in. Whether they are really the reality or not.

  You may have to face negative situations on your life's journey but how you look at it and how you react to it, will determine whether you have a positive outcome.

  If you look for a way to have a positive outcome you will find a way to have a positive outcome. That doesn't mean it will be easy. It means you have to do whatever you have to do to have a positive outcome.

  What you see will depend on what you are looking for. What are you looking for?

Don't waste it

   All we have is the TIME we have so don't waste it. 

  Don't spend the TIME you have RELIVING the past. Spend your TIME enjoying your TODAYS. 

  Don't spend the TIME you have worried about things that may or may not happen. Even if the thing you worried about doesn't happen the damage from worrying is already done.

  Don't spend the TIME you have getting stressed over things that you can not change. You have to accept that it is what it is and adjust.

  Don't spend the TIME you have trying to figure out how or why because some things there are just no answers for, not even on Google. 

  Spend the TIME you have enjoying every moment you can. Don't put everything you want to do on your bucket list. Because some things you have to do when you are young. 

  Spend the TIME you have wisely because you only have the TIME you have, so don't waste it. 

  Spend every moment as if it were your last because it could be. 

  Yesterday is already gone and tomorrow may never come, but TODAY is yours to ENJOY.

Everything has gone haywire today

   I don't understand how so many things can break in one day. I started out the day with one problem that I had been working on for days. 

  I thought I had a solution for it, although costly and time consuming. But after days of trying to fix it I had to accept that it was just going to be expensive but it needed fixed. 

  By the time I got back from fixing the one problem I realized it caused a more serious problem that I thought would be fixed once I took care of the first problem. Unfortunately not.

  Computers are not necessarily expensive to replace but all the information on it was impossible to recover. Especially the information on my customers for billing purposes. Definitely should have had a backup plan before it crashed and the information was hidden from me.

  As I struggled to try and research if there was anything I could do to recover it, the electricity went out. For hours. When it finally came back on the fish tank pump wouldn't work.

  Now besides my computer crashing my fish would die if I don't get a new pump right away. That became the priority even though my computer problem was seriously a big problem. 

  After driving 30 minutes to the closest fish store they don't have any pumps the size I needed. So off 30 minutes in the opposite direction to another fish store I go.

  So now the fish are okay and my first problem was solved but there just isn't any way I can fix the computer problem. Sure I can buy a computer but getting all the customers addresses was going to be a big challenge. 

   There are many challenges in life and some are simple but expensive and some are harder than others. But when you are too stressed over them it is best to JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND and get some rest and deal with it another day. 

  Like they say sometimes in life when it rains it pours and today it has rained so hard that it has caused a flood. But I know that soon the sun will be shining.

Talk is cheap

   Talking about it doesn't matter if you don't put action behind it. Talking about it is just chatter unless you walk the talk.

  You may have a great plan but if you don't follow through with what you have planned you just waste your time. It is bad enough if you waste your time but if you don't follow through with your plan you have with others, you waste their time too. 

  When someone ask you for help don't tell them yes you will help if you have no intentions of helping them. An honest NO does far less damage. 

  If you tell them yes then they won't look for anyone else to help them. If the answer is NO then say NO. 

  If you want to achieve what you have planned it is only possible if you execute your plan by actions. If you don't get up and get going you won't get anywhere.

  To GET 'R DONE you got to get up and do whatever it takes to GET 'R DONE.
