You could have the greatest plan in the World but if all you do is make plans nothing will ever get done. A plan has to not only be well thought out but unless it is followed by action it will benefit no one. A well thought out plan includes the action it will take to execute the plan. If you want your plan to work you will have to do whatever action is necessary to get the job done. Just get 'er done.

The task may be simple but it won't get done if you just simply don't know how to do it. When you ask others for help they sometimes look at you like you are from outer space. No matter how simple it is you will have to ask "how to" questions if you want to know the answer. A simple task could be the key to solving complex problems if you simply get them done. One thing leads to another but there are times when you have to build a bridge to get where you want to go.

You won't enjoy the gentle breeze from the the trees if you are always running from one place to another. You'll miss the beauty when a flowers petals are opened before they wither away if you don't look at them when they are blooming. You can't enjoy their childhood when they are grown. You would be surprised how many things you could enjoy if you just would slow down long enough to enjoy them.

Lost at a store parking lot in the middle of a drenching sideways rainstorm with your arms full of purchases that you made. As you search the parking lot for your car you find yourself enjoying playing in the rain. If you are already soaked getting mad will only make you feel uncomfortable. If you get over it you will enjoy stomping in the puddles and feel the raindrops wash away your stress like a fountain of youth. The kid in you can't come out if your angry all the time. Enjoying yourself if you get caught in the rain will keep you from going insane.

If you see a chance to make a positive difference, would you? If you could ease someones mind, would you? If you could bring a smile to someone to brighten their day, would you? If you knew what was causing someones pain and you could stop it, would you? If you knew how to fix the mess their in, would you? If you could you should and you would want help if you needed a hand, wouldn't you?

If you see something happening that you know is wrong and you do nothing at least realize that choosing to do nothing is still a choice and will make the wrong doings acceptable. If it commonly happens and it commonly gets ignored it becomes a common acceptable occurrence. It used to be common decency, common courtesy, and common sense was common to see now we commonly ignore every act of inhumanity that has led to insanity in our society.

If you can't imagine yourself succeeding then the failure you anticipate will surely come. If you see that the path you are taking will lead you nowhere yet you don't turn around then nowhere is where you will surely go. Your "point of view is your reality and if you can't see anything positive then the reality is you will fail to go anywhere if you don't know there are other places you could go.

Make it a point to say something kind or smile at one person each day. If you don't get out everyday just look in the mirror and smile because you are alive. Don't miss out on life's little joys while you wait for something big to happen to make you happy. Big things don't come often if they come at all. Big things do however come in small packages. Enjoy life's little joys each day and pass on a smile as you go through your day.

Many people are suffering mentally and physically trying to hang on to a mortgage that they can't afford to pay now. In many cases they owe more than the homes current value. Don't make yourself sick just accept the loss and live stress free in a home you can afford comfortably. It's not a bad thing to lose the stress but a victory to celebrate.

As I sat in the waiting room of the dentist I was trying to understand how what started as a mild discomfort in one tooth now three days later has caused major pain and became unbearable in every tooth on my lower jaw and swelling in my neck and cheek. How can one bad tooth take over my quality of life? The same is true if you leave one bad past person or problem in your life they will cause havoc in all areas of your life. If you leave a moldy strawberry in a container of good ones if it is not removed immediately the mold will spread quickly ruining them all.

As the thunder roared and shook the house and the lightning struck you could feel the house rumble. Errands would just have to wait the rain was coming down so hard visibility for driving is too dangerous. As I waited out the storm I sat in awe of the power in the thunder to shake the earth. In minutes it passed and the soothing relief from the heatwave replaced the annoying delay it caused. The storms in your life although scary shall too pass and can bring relief.

Foe five days in a row the forecast was cloudy with 30% chance of rain. My grandson would ask me everyday will it rain today? He waited for the rain and on the fifth day he said when will it be our turn to be the 30% who get rain? I had no real answer for him no more than I do for those who are waiting for a chance to get ahead financially in this bad economy. When your chance for rain will come isn't always clear.

If we meet in the middle then we will both be half way there. Waiting until you get exactly what you want could leave you waiting for what you need. Compromise that will get you at least what you need will be a step in the right direction that will put you closer to what you want as long as it doesn't compromise your integrity. You may not be able to run but you can walk to where you need to be one step at a time.

You may be doing something that is causing unpleasant outcomes but once your eyes are wide open to see the negative affect you clearly know it is a problem and you can not continue that behavior without knowing that it is wrong. You must learn from your mistakes if you want a better outcome. You can't shut your eyes once they are open because the crater that you discovered is still there to fall into. You should keep your eyes wide open so you can safely go around it.
