Did you forget how to smile?

Don't let your anger be so strong that it is all you can feel. If you keep thinking about how angry you are then that is all you will feel. If you think it you feel it. Think about how you are going to get out of the mess you are in and you will feel encouraged. Then your gritted teeth can turn into a smile.

Go with your gut reaction

Most of the time you should go with the first feeling you have about a situation. When you start analyzing it too much you can no longer see a clear picture because you now have too much on your mind. Subconsciously you felt it and knew what to do but then you talked yourself out of it. When you feel it go with your gut reaction.

Blame it on the moon

Have you seen the movie Chicken Little? In it the sky was falling or so he thought. I hope your not sitting around waiting for something to fall from the sky to make you happy. Opportunities are never lost they are taken by someone else. If you want a life worth living it's going to take hard work. You can blame it on the moon if you want to.

Wake up America

People have gotten so use to ignoring what's going on that even if they can make a difference they don't. They have gone from becoming numb to get by to the point where even if it takes no more energy than it does to avoid it they do nothing. They walk around like zombies oblivious to all the wrong doings and suffering as if they are in la la land. Wake up America before the bad out number the good like in the Middle East.

Do what you need to

It may be raining and mess up your plans but we need the rain. It may seem like the sun is too hot at times but we need it's warmth. Those leaves are a pain to rake but we need the trees. It may have been BP who caused the oil spill but we all need to save our oceans.

Make a choice to open your eyes

You must open your eyes to see where you are going to decide which way to go if you plan on going anywhere. You must set a goal before it can be reached. If you don't do something different today to make a change then nothing will be different. You may have not done anything to create the circumstances your in but if you don't do something then there you will stay.

Keep it Simple

Cut down on your stress by putting your necessities and priorities in order of importance. When you get your basic needs figured out take a deep breath and be thankful for that. Now look at your list and cross off anything that is just unrealistic. This should ease your mind now that you are not so overwhelmed. You'll stress less when you have less to stress over.

Don't react just Distract

When you feel the anger growing and you are about to explode- Distract your thoughts to something less stressful. You will regret your actions out of anger and you can't take them back. Distract yourself long enough for your mind to make a clear decision that you won't have to regret.

Reach out but don't fall

You should reach out and help someone if you can but not if it will effect you negatively. You must always take care of yourself first so that you will be stable enough to help others. You won't be able to help if you let them pull you under. Take time for yourself and you will have the strength to get through your busy day.

Set your standards

As a newborn you must be taught what to do. You learn from the environment around you. You are not born knowing how life works you learn as you grow. If we want compassionate and caring adults then teach them the "Habit of Humanity." The standards that you teach are the standards they will live by.

Make them smile

In this economy we all know someone who certainly seems to have more than their share of problems. You might not be able to solve their problems but you can bring a smile to their face. For some a bar of chocolate will do or maybe just a hug will help. You might be able to help them flush away a bad day.

Let It Go

Let go of your painful experiences in life so the pain will go away. Reliving them over and over again will not erase them. Keep whatever lesson you need to learn from them then "Just Flush It" away. If you burnt your hand on a stove you don't need to do it again to learn the lesson that the stove is hot. Your scar will be there to remind you but the pain will go away. Stop blaming your past it's you that needs to let it go.
