A makeover that won't go out of style

A true makeover is more than a new hair style and clothes. It is a NEW POINT OF VIEW and a NEW ATTITUDE that will make a difference that won't go out of style. You may like the packaging but you would not be happy if the actual product was not inside. It is what is inside the packaging that matters most and will make you truly happy.

Focus on what you can do

You can't fix everything that may be a problem in your life but you can focus on what you can fix and FIX IT. You can't focus on your future if you spend all your time and energy focused on your past. With every issue that was weighing you down with stress is flushed away you will be able to focus on what you can do about the rest. "JUST FLUSH IT" one thought at a time.

Reach as far as you can

If you let others tell you that you will never reach your goals and you stop trying to reach them then without trying you will definitely not reach them. If you alone believe it is possible and don't give up, you will reach as far as you can. If you think you can then you will. If you think you can't then you will never know because you will never try.

Be someone's hero

In today's society you can not count on people to do the right thing. Now you have to watch your back your front your sides and only hope you will be all right today. You can help change that by being the one in the crowd who watches out for others. That would make you a common citizen in the good old days but in today's standards you could be someones hero. Let's make everyday heroes common again.

Figure it out, Just get it done

Don't tell yourself you can't do something if it is something that you really need to get done. If you can't physically do it or you just can't figure out just how to do it,then figure out where when and how you can find someone else to do it for you. It doesn't matter who does it what matters is that you make sure it gets done.

A cloud of anger

There are many challenges in life that we must face and you don't get to choose all of them. You do however get to choose how to react to them. If you react with anger then your actions in a cloud of anger will lead you. If you choose to react after you have had time to think things through then your actions will clearly lead you.

Stop- Look -Listen

Life is tough enough without making it harder on yourself. When a situation arises that makes you angry you need to back-off and think about it before you react. One step back will get you further in life then lunging forward out of anger.You need to .... 1)STOP-take a deep breath, 2) LOOK- at it from every "point of view", 3) LISTEN-to your first gut instinct. When you feel it in your gut it is not always GAS.

You just got to do what you got to do

You can't fix a leaky pipe with a band aid you have to at least use duct tape. You can't drive on a flat tire till payday you have to at least put on your dough nut tire to get around. If your toilet gets clogged you can't just keep flushing the handle you got to grab the plunger. There are times in life when you just got to do what you got to do.

One thought at a time

Tornadoes can destroy lives even on a sunny day. When everywhere you turn things keep getting worse and the problems you are facing keep swirling around weighing heavy on your mind. In your reality there is a tornado going on in your mind and suddenly with great force a small thought like burning dinner is as deadly as the layoff that you are worried about. One thought at a time you can calm the storm in your mind. "JUST FLUSH IT" one thought at a time.

Relax when you can

It is not wasted time when you relax when you can. Whether I have twenty minutes or four hours to just sigh in relief and relax and unwind or take a nap if I need too. I am old enough and tired enough to know that physically and mentally I did not waste my free time it was time well spent getting prepared to tackle what ever life might throw my way. Rest when, where, while you can.

Seeing is Believing

You may be saying it loud and clear but those that need to hear it may simply not see your "point of view" therefore it falls on deaf ears. Just keep saying it in different ways till they can picture it in their mind and see it for themselves. It will be a "point of view" that they had not thought of. Reality is the answer could be right in front of your face and you wont see it. Seeing is Believing.

A temporary crises

Although you might feel like you are barely hanging on by a thread, with your dignity intact you can hold your head up high. When times were tough you just dug a little deeper and found a solution that didn't compromise your standards. When our economy starts to recover there will be those who character will never recover. Don't create a permanent problem from a temporary crises.

The cold front shall pass

Just this morning you had to put on layers of clothes and gloves. Now the birds are chirping and the gentle cool breeze feels refreshing with the warmth of the sun that is now shining brightly. In our daily lives we can feel the aches and pains when we are overwhelmed with troubling issues that at the time we forget that most of the time they too shall pass just as the cold front that brought us a chill just hours earlier.
