You-Turns are allowed

When you find yourself in the middle of chaos because of the choices you made.....make a U-Turn. You chose to go there and now you can see a light at the end of the tunnel only if You-Turn around and head the right way. Knowing where you have been and how you got there will keep you on the right path. But until You-Turn around you'll stay where you are.

Learn to shut the door

Although you must peek inside to look when a new door is open. It's not only to see if there is anything for you to benefit from-But also to see if you need to shut the door to keep trouble out. Opportunity may come knocking at your door but so too does the big bad wolf dressed in grandma's clothes.

Your future depends on it

If you don't want to step on the broken glass then clean it up or walk around it. If you see trouble ahead turn around. If your hungry eat. If your past is bringing you down then "Just Flush It." If you can avoid a bad situation before it's too late then do it. Your future depends on your actions today.

Will it matter tomorrow?

Somethings are just not worth worrying about. If the laundry needs to be put off till tomorrow- who cares. If it rains on the day you were going to grill out-just cook indoors. Pick and choose what your reaction will be not based on how you feel at that moment but on asking yourself....Does it really matter? Is it worth the stress of worrying about? Take care of your health by not only what you eat but what you choose to worry about.

Focus on what's important

When too many issues are going on at the same time and your world seems upside down-Focus on what's important first. How do you decide? You can go eeny-meeny-miny-mo or you can ask Joe blow. But only you know you best and talking to yourself might sound crazy..... But it is even crazier to let someone else decide what's important to you.

Don't get struck by lightning

When a situation is out of your control you need to realize that sometimes nothing you can do will make it better but anything and everything you do can make it worse. If you can walk away-then please do. If it is something that you can't do without-then watch it from a distance and remember silence can be the key. We may need the rain but that doesn't mean you have to stand outside in a lightning storm.

We're all in the same boat

When you look around you'll know that life is tough for all of us. You can't change your past and neither can they. But going around angry at the world and scowling as you go through your day will not help anyone. Just flush your painful past and you'll have room to have a thought that will make you smile and it will spread to others as you flow through this day.

Figure out where when and how

It's not suppose to be like this. It's not what I have worked so hard for. In this economy you hear that from people who did all the right things. But it is what it is and because of your past and who you are....You will figure a way out of this mess. Flush all the whys and figure out where, when, and how your gonna do it.

Give me a break

When it seems like there is too many things going on at once and you can't seem to make sense of it all.....take a break. Walk outside, scan the tv channels, shut out the chaos long enough to take a deep breath. Give your brain fresh oxygen to tackle what you need to. You'll make better choices when you can think clearly. Cloudy judgement can lead to a thunderstorm that could have been avoided.

Circuit overload

Just as athletes are rotated in a competitive game, so that a player can relax in between plays of such a physically draining sport. Your mind needs to take a break away from mental overload. If you got to drive to work no matter what...complaining about it will only multiply your stress. Learn to enjoy the drive-relax. Somethings you have to accept like your commute to work to get a paycheck.

Watch where you are going

The only thing you can change about the past is your attitude toward it. What's done is done. Let it go. "Just Flush It." Reliving it over and over again is just wasted energy. Save your energy for reaching your goals or planning new ones. What you are facing today is hard enough. Your past is behind you-Look forward so you don't fall today.

Do the right thing

You usually can feel it in the pit of your stomach when you are about to do or just did something that will have negative consequences. If you put your life in line with your priorities, values, and importance and stick to it and react by your standards. Then you'll do the right thing 99% of the time. The other 1% will remind you why you need to stick to your core standards that you set for yourself.

The value of laughter

Did you know that laughter stimulates the body to produce endorphins that are powerful neurochemical pain killers 200 times stronger than morphine? I have always heard that laughter is the best medicine but never dreamed that we could laugh away our aches and pains and cure drug addiction. Go out tell a joke and help others ease their pain.
