From this day forward

When things are not working out for you in your personal life you need to step back so you can regroup and get back to the necessary things in your life that matter most and start there. Now set your personal standards that will determine every choice you make from this day forward. It's a New Day and the start of a New Life so don't bring any of the "crap" you don't need that has been weighing you down.

Moments that you can't relive

Don't be in such a hurry for the next phase of your life that you miss out on everything that happens in your life while you are living it because those are moments that you can not relive. Planning for the future is necessary for future enjoyment but it is also important to plan on enjoying every moment that you can while you can. If it makes you happy then soak it up and enjoy it while the feeling is there to enjoy. Don't miss out on all the little things in life while you are working on that big thing in your future that you will enjoy one day.

Immediately Change Directions

Imagine you are the owner of the Company and you had invested all your money and time to secure your future and it begins to fail. You would have two choices. one close the doors or two figure out what you are doing wrong that lead you down and change it immediately. In your personal life you are the owner and in order to secure your future you will have to keep on track by immediately changing directions if you see anything that will lead you off track while on life's journey.

A grudge will only raise your blood pressure

Forgivness is not something that you do to make someone else "feel at ease." Letting go of the issue by forgiving someone who has done you wrong will be something you do for yourself. You will feel a weight lifted off of you and you will feel refreshed and at ease. Holding a grudge raises your blood pressure and simply allows you to be hurt over and over again. Some things may be hard to forgive but untill you do it will keep doing damage while it weighs heavy on your mind. Minimize the damage by forgiving those who have done you wrong so you will be strong enough to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Five, three, two, it's done

Let's say there are five issues that you are dealing with that are weighing heavy on your mind but only two you can solve at the moment. Take care of the two that you can so that you can clear your mind of them and now you are only facing three issues. Now lets say one of those can't be dealt with so you can take that off your list leaving only two issues to deal with. Now that you are not so overwhelmed you can focus on "thing 1" and "thing 2." You will then be able to clearly see how to get them done and you will be left with room for "peace of mind."

Make two list

Don't overwhelm yourself by making your "to do" list so long. Make two list, one for the important things that really need done and one for if you have time you would like to get done. Keep things as simple as you can so that you do not make things harder than they have to be. If you simply need to get the garbage out of your car then don't write clean and vacuum the car on your list, just simply bag up the garbage and mark it off your list. When you simply don't have time to get everything done that you want to do you will simply have to be happy with getting done what's most important to you.

The key to unlock the secret

I don't quite understand how some people see the glass half full while others see it as half empty. Without a doubt I believe that if I could figure out the answer it is the key to unlock th secret to happiness. How you see things will determine whether you have inner peace by focusing on what you do have or you have inner turmoil being stressed out over what you don't have. Figuring out the key to changing someones "point of view" sounds easy but it is almost impossible. Until they open their eyes to see things from another "point of view" they won't see clearly and they will only see the glass half full.

An hour can make a difference

Most peoples lives are so busy that it is just too hard to make solid plans to devote any regularly scheduled moments for themselves. You will have to take advantage of those few and far between times where you can squeeze in whatever time you have, whenever you can. You would be surprised how much an hour here or there can help. For those who at times don't get even a chance to breathe, an hour can make all the difference in the world. When time for yourself is so precious make every moment you get be devoted to personally finding a way for you to relax even if it is to get a job done that you had no time to get done.

Look with your eyes wide open

If you can't imagine it then you won't see what it would be like. Seeing is believing. Your "point of view" is all you can see therefore it will be your reality. If you don't have a dream then your dream will never come true. If you don't believe you can do something then you won't try to do it. If you don't look with your eyes wide open as you go through lifes journey then you will not see the curves and boulders that will naturally be in your path. You will hit trouble head on. With your eyes wide open you would see trouble coming and you could go around it.

There's a big difference

There is a big difference between talking about the "problems you had" and talking about the "problems you have." It may seem like only a few letters difference in each phrase but there is a big difference. If you spend all your time and energy complaining about the "problems you have" then you are wasting your energy that you should be using to fix each problem as it comes so that you can relax while you talk about how you fixed the "problems that you had." Don't fill your mind with an overwhelming amount of stuff that needs done, just get up and get 'r done so that you can "Just Flush It" off your list and relax now that you fixed the "problems that you had."

Throw them in a box

When you are older you realize not only how precious memories are but how few you really remember. Pictures truly help you recall and enjoy those memories that are locked deep inside your mind. It is funny how at one glance at an old picture you can suddenly pull up the memory so vividly that you can feel the emotions as if you were transported back to that time. Without a picture or someone who was there with you bringing it up you may never recall that moment at all. Take pictures now that even if you just throw them in a box for 20 years or so there will come a time when you will treasure the precious memories that could otherwise be a forgotten memory.

Have your Family Reunion at the store

A trip to an Antique Store is similar to a Family Reunion. As you spot the lamp that your Aunt and Uncle had you begin to reminisce about memories of times you had spent there much like you would if you would see them evoking all those same kind of memories. As you stroll through the store there will be other relatives that items bring up buried memories of, usually crystal clear despite how forgetful you are in real time. Try it sometime. When you find yourself with a few moments to spare stop by an Antique Store or second hand shop and see how many relatives you can have a Family Reunion with.
