Welcome the rain

You don't have to see eye to eye with someone to know that they would be there if you needed them. We all have our own opinions and do things a little differently. It is not our differences but what we have in common that bonds us. Blood is definitely thicker than water but don't forget how important water is to stay alive. Plants need sun, water, and air to thrive and so do humans. If you want to grow where you are planted you will need to soak up some rain to keep healthy while you catch the rays of the sun and enjoy the breeze.

Barter for what you need

To get by a little easier in this tough economy get creative and use the barter system to get what you need. For example perhaps you know someone who is a mechanic and he could do a minor adjustment on your car and you could watch his kids so he and his wife could have a break one evening for dinner and a movie. You could fix a broken fence for someone in exchange for an old wheel barrel they have no need for anymore. Trade services with more than one person and you could all end up with something you need.

Simply show, give, teach compassion

Talk is cheap because it does no good. Talking about problems will keep it fresh on your mind but the havoc it will reek on your life is outrageous. If you see, feel, or hear a problem that you can help fix then learn to jump in and do what you can do to help. This will give you something positive to talk about and will make a positive difference to whomever you helped. There will always be problems in life but there are usually simple solutions to fix what is most important. Start simple, simply show, give, teach compassion.

Good days Bad days

Everything happens for a reason. Some of the most valuable lessons in life are the most painful. Life is tough and there will be good days and bad days. There are times when you got to "flush away a bad day" if you want to have a good day. Unless you want to keep reliving a bad situation you must learn what you need to from it then "Just Flush It" away if you want to have a good day. You wouldn't stay in high school after you learned what you needed to graduate, you learn and move on.

You reap what you sow

You can't get bruised, battered and shattered from the inside out and thrown out into a cruel world and expect to land on your feet knowing what compassion is about. If you let go of the anger and hurt and treat others how you wish you would have been treated you will feel the warmth that compassion can bring. You don't have to wait for it you can plant it in others and enjoy the harvest that your kindness will sow. You reap what you sow in life not only in your garden.

Closer to where you need to be

You got to start somewhere if you are going to get anything done. If you find yourself overwhelmed with things that there is nothing you can do about then "Just Flush It" off your list of things that need to be done and you will have a start. Now if you can take care of all the ten minutes or less items off your list by taking the time to get them done your list will seem more manageable as you scratch them off one by one. You might not be able to do everything but whether you get 10%, 50%, or 95% done you will be that much closer to where you need to be.

They failed to help themselves

There are times when you do all you can to help someone but they still fail because they fail to help themselves. There are just some people who choose to be where they are and no matter what anyone does that is where they will stay. If you want to make a difference by helping someone make sure they want things to be different. If they think that they are owed something there is little doubt that they can't be helped. Those that ask for nothing will gain the most from your help.

Soak in the quiet

Sit back relax and soak in the quiet peaceful moments in life to rest up in between all the not so peaceful moments. If you don't give your mind a fresh break of oxygen when you can you will not have the strength to cope during the stressful times. Life is full of ups and downs which can take its toll on our mind leading to physical damage. Your lungs breathe in the oxygen but unless it reaches the brain it won't know where, when, nor how much to go where it is needed to be healthy.

Shed more than pounds

Carrying around dead weight from your past will only make your journey through life harder. There is no need to let them drag you down and keep you down. You need to learn what you can from them and "JUST FLUSH IT" out of your mind and you will feel the dead weight flow away as you shed more than pounds. The climb up life's mountain will be filled with good times and some bad but it will be easier now that your past isn't weighing you down.

Make things happen

You may be wasting your time waiting for someone to call if they are waiting for you to call. There may be endless of possibilities for you but unless you believe it is possible and try then it will be impossible for you to ever know what might have been possible. Don't just sit there and complain about why or how a bad situation occurred just make every attempt to fix what is possible and stop wasting your time waiting for something good to happen and make things happen.

"Just Flush It" out of your mind

Choosing to do nothing is still a choice. Ignoring it wont make things better. Complaining about it will only keep it on your mind yet still nothing will get any better. Crying about it will only wear you out. Figure out what you can do and just do it. Then you will have a start on solid ground and you will see more clearly what you can or can not do. With each decision you make followed by action you will relieve some of your stress and make your quality of life better. Things that are weighing you down that you can let go of well......"Just Flush It" out of your mind and let it go.

Be thankful that it was only one

Anyone can make a mountain out of a molehill if they keep adding dirt.Don't let a minor setback in one area of your life determine what happens in all the other areas in your life. One door may have closed and slammed you on the nose but if you react in a way that closes other doors you will get a concussion instead of a simple nose bleed. Get over what one thing you lost before you lose it all. "Just Flush It" and be thankful it was only one door that closed.
