There is NO HURRY so ....

     If you are TRAVELING OUT OF TOWN to ENJOY MEMORIAL DAY with OTHERS...  There is NO HURRY so SLOW DOWN and DRIVE SAFELY.

    As long as YOU ARRIVE SAFELY then it DOESN'T MATTER if you ARRIVE LATER THAN YOU HAD PLANNED.

    AS WE ARE REMEMBERING those that are no longer with us on MEMORIAL DAY we also NEED TO REMIND OURSELVES TO CHERISH our LOVED ONES that are AROUND US EVERY DAY.

    We are REMINDED that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US ONLY HAVE THE TIME WE HAVE SO DON'T WASTE A MOMENT OF THE TIME YOU HAVE.

    TODAY IS THE ONLY DAY YOU CAN ENJOY because YESTERDAY IS ALREADY GONE, TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME, but TODAY IS YOURS TO ENJOY.

   If YOU want to ENJOY LIFE YOU have to ENJOY IT WHILE YOU ARE LIVING IT, BOTH ON THE GOOD DAYS AND THE BAD DAYS. 

   LIFE IS A ROLLERCOASTER and THERE WILL BE UPS AND DOWNS, as well as TWISTS AND TURNS, THAT'S JUST LIFE.

Take care of YOURSELF..!!

    You ALONE decide WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO EAT, no matter how many times someone has told you how UNHEALTHY IT IS FOR YOU.

    You ALONE decide WHETHER YOU WILL EXERCISE TO MAINTAIN YOUR HEALTH, no matter how many times you have been told that REGULAR EXERCISE is NECESSARY to maintain your OVERALL WELL BEING.

    You ALONE decide WHETHER YOU WILL BE AN HONEST PERSON OR NOT, the CHOICE OF WHO YOU WILL BE is UP TO YOU.

    You ALONE SET THE STANDARDS you will LIVE BY NO MATTER HOW CHALLENGING LIFE CAN BE they are STANDARDS YOU WILL NOT CROSS 

    You can BLAME IT ON THE MOON OR JOE BLOW but the TRUTH is THAT YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO.

    DON'T DO ANYTHING to get through a TEMPORARY SETBACK that YOU will PERMANENTLY PAY THE CONSEQUENCES for.

    Your REPUTATION is WHAT people THINK THEY KNOW ABOUT YOU but YOUR ACTIONS DECIDE the TRUE CHARACTER THAT PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU.

What You HEARD can have MANY MEANINGS

     YOU MAY have HEARD yet you COMPLETELY MISUNDERSTOOD what you HEARD.

    It's like FIVE PEOPLE can Read the same FORTUNE COOKIE and HEAR A TOTALLY DIFFERENT MESSAGE.

   I Love getting a FORTUNE COOKIE knowing I am going to be TAKEN ON A short JOURNEY to PONDER THE MESSAGE and HOW I INTERPRET IT will determine WHERE the MESSAGE TAKES ME.

    Go on a JOURNEY the NEXT TIME you GET TOGETHER to have some CHINESE DINNER with your FRIENDS.

    WHILE you are all sitting around the table letting the FOOD DIGEST, READ YOUR fortune Cookie messages out loud.

   GO on A JOURNEY in the DIRECTION TO WHEREVER THE FORTUNE COOKIE MESSAGES LEAD each of YOU AS YOU PONDER WHAT IT WAS SAYING TO EACH OF YOU. 

   IT will do ALL OF YOU some GOOD to PUT DOWN YOUR PHONES long enough to take a JOURNEY AND USE YOUR MIND TO PONDER YOUR THOUGHTS.

IF GIVEN A CHANCE WOULD they TAKE IT?

      If no one GIVES them A CHANCE then they DON'T HAVE A CHANCE.

      Someone has to GIVE THEM A CHANCE so they can HAVE A CHANCE. 

     It is the only way YOU can SEE if GIVEN A CHANCE WOULD THEY TAKE IT.

     We all know someone who is facing tough times and they just NEED to CATCH A BREAK.

     Sometimes it may be because they BLEW A CHANCE they HAD in the PAST BUT.... today if they were GIVEN A CHANCE THEY WOULD DEFINITELY TAKE IT.

    If YOU have A CHANCE to GIVE SOMEONE A CHANCE WOULD YOU?

   They may not take ADVANTAGE OF THE CHANCE but YOU will FEEL GOOD that YOU at least GAVE THEM A CHANCE.

     IF GIVEN A CHANCE TO HELP SOMEONE I HOPE YOU WILL TAKE THAT CHANCE.

Choose wisely

     ALL THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE you must PICK and CHOOSE what BATTLES are WORTH FIGHTING FOR.

    A war is comprised of MANY MANY small BATTLES that makes CHOOSING which BATTLES are WORTH FIGHTING FOR very important.

     Whether it is a WAR at WORK, A WAR IN your RELATIONSHIPS, there is a WAR to be WON in MANY AREAS on YOUR LIFE'S JOURNEY.

     AND you won't WIN EVERY BATTLE so SAVE YOUR TIME AND ENERGY for the MOST IMPORTANT BATTLES.

    If it doesn't really matter then OBVIOUSLY it IS NOT a BATTLE THAT YOU NEED TO WASTE your TIME and ENERGY ON.

    WHAT is MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU is the MOST IMPORTANT BATTLE TO WIN.

     OUR new puppy has made us CHOOSE to let him GET AWAY with a LOT BUT....some THINGS he could be DESTRUCTIVE WITH we are WINNING THE BATTLE WITH. 

    SINCE NAPKINS AND SOCKS are CHEAP to REPLACE.....THOSE BATTLES WE LET HIM WIN.

    YOU DON'T have to WIN EVERY BATTLE to WIN THE WAR you just have to WIN THE MOST IMPORTANT ONES. 

     When you COMPRISE with OTHERS then EVERYONE CAN BE A WINNER.

You KNOW YOU BEST so what do YOU THINK YOU should do?

    At times it's HELPFUL to ASK SOMEONE THEIR OPINION, Because getting SUGGESTIONS on what YOU should do will give YOU A DIFFERENT VIEW to CONSIDER.

    EVERYONE has their OWN OPINIONS but at the end of the day the ONLY OPINION THAT MATTERS MOST IS YOURS.

    THE FACT IS that YOU KNOW YOU BEST so YOUR DECISIONS should be made BASED ON WHAT YOU KNOW is BEST FOR YOU.

    Sometimes on YOUR LIFE'S JOURNEY YOU might make a WRONG DECISION but OUR MISTAKES in LIFE are sometimes A NECESSARY PART of OUR JOURNEY. 

     As long as YOU Did what you thought was BEST FOR YOU at the end of the day YOU WILL BE PROUD OF YOURSELF.

    EVERY DECISION YOU make MATTERS so CHOOSE WISELY because YOU WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH the CONSEQUENCES for EVERY DECISION that YOU MAKE.

     KEEP IN MIND that Just because other people are doing it doesn't mean that it is the RIGHT THING for YOU TO DO.

WITHOUT EVEN SAYING a WORD

    Have you ever heard the phrase...A PICTURE is worth a THOUSAND WORDS?

    Have you ever heard the phrase.... ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER than WORDS?

    YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY A WORD for people to HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEARLY.

    When you walk in a room THE LOOK ON YOUR FACE let's everyone KNOW WHAT kind of MOOD YOU ARE IN. 

   When you LOOK IN THE MIRROR you can SEE WHAT OTHERS SEE.

   And TRUST ME WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY YOU DON'T LOOK GOOD.

   NO ONE WILL BELIEVE what YOU SAY AS YOU ARE DOING THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU SAY THEY SHOULD DO.

   AND REMEMBER the phrase in the song...THAT IF YOU ARE HAPPY YOUR FACE WILL TRULY SHOW IT.

   WITHOUT SAYING A WORD THE LOOK ON YOUR FACE and YOUR ACTIONS SPEAKS VOLUMES.
