Take what you got

It may not be your first choice but it may be your only choice. It may not be what you wanted it to be but it may be all you are gonna get. You can see the glass half full and enjoy what you do have or you can see it half empty and spend all your time complaining about where the other half went. Take what you got and make the best of it. If you want a positive outcome you will have to think of positive thoughts. If you look for a way to have a positive outlook you will but if you are only thinking about all the negative that it will bring then you won't see the positive bcause you are too angry to see.

Naturally happening or Man made

Some situations we must deal with leave us almost speechless short of saying "What the heck?" and "How on Earth could this even be possible?" Yet we must deal with it just to continue on with our daily lives. Somethings are just life but unfortunately there are times when it is other "Human Beings" who get away with behaving badly. The truth is whether it is naturally happening or it is man made it is part of your lifes journey. It will not matter who, what, when, where nor why. The only thing that matters is that you must do whatever is necessary to deal with it so you can "Just Flush It" and move on.

If you just get out of the way

Some of the decisions that we must face on our journey on the roller coaster of life may be hard and personally painful but they are a part of life. There will be many ups and downs that we will encounter along the way. Learning how to make the best of the good times and how to survive the bad times are a part of life. There are times when life's journey is interrupted by giant boulders that block your path and you will just have to learn how to go around them. There are many issues you will have to deal with on your journey but you will make it easier on yourself if when you see trouble coming you would just get out of the way.

All the pieces to the puzzle

Life is complicated. It is made up of many pieces that must come together like the picture of a puzzle. You need all the pieces to the puzzle before you can see the "big picture." Even if you have the big pieces in your life in place you will still have an incomplete puzzle. The less pieces you need the easier your life will be to keep track of all the pieces to the puzzle making sure they fit together to keep the big picture from being hidden not allowing you to enjoy it. Every aspect of your life that is a necessary part of your life is a piece of the puzzle that makes up the "big picture" in your life. Every piece is important.

A set of standards they will live by

Children are not born with a built in set of standards that they will live by. It is something they learn from those around them. If you want happy kids be happy when you are with them. They will do what is expected of them if you let them know what you expect. They will accept the boundaries you set if you set boundaries and let them know that you won't accept them being crossed. Kid's pick up their parents habits so teach them the habits that you want them to follow. Make time to spend with them guiding them when they are young to get them on the right path with a set of standards that they will live by.

They don't need mouth to mouth

A simple show of kindness can be a breath of fresh air to someone who is feeling smothered by all the issues at hand they may be dealing with. Be kind to everyone you encounter throughout your day for you have no idea the problems they may be facing. A smile as you walk by will naturally subconsciously cause them to smile back which may distract them long enough to let them take in a breath of fresh air. If they take in enough oxygen throughout their day they will be able to have the energy necessary to deal with the issues they are facing. They don't need Mouth to Mouth to survive they just need a chance to catch their breath.

It brings a relaxing feeling

As the wind blows you hear the sound of the dry leaves rolling across the ground which brings a relaxing feeling. The birds sing as the wind blows through their feathers and their song brings a relaxing feeling. The gentle breeze blows by the hanging wind chimes creating music that brings a relaxing feeling. With a breeze in the air it sweeps past you blowing the wind through your hair bringing you a relaxing feeling. If you take advantage of the simple things in life that can bring you a relaxing feeling it will help you to relax enough to not feel so stressed out leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated to face the challenges of the twenty first century.

Just like Humpty Dumpty did

There are many people today who thought they made all the right decisions and put in all the hard work to make sure they would always be able to take care of themselves who now need help to survive. Some people got lucky and found the support they needed through the tough times and they are doing just fine now. Others were not so fortunate and they sit silently suffering having lost hope just like Humpty Dumpty that not even all the kings men could fix the situation they are in. If they cross your path reach out and help them if you can, it just might be the super glue that keeps them from falling apart.

Deal with the fruit salad

I have heard people say that you can't compare apples to oranges. Life is not always a "bowl of cherries" and your basket of life that you must live in harmony with is full of all kinds of fruits and nuts. You must compare how important each one is and figure out how to enjoy life dealing with the fruit salad that is your life. If it must remain a part of your life then you must figure out a way to make it work together with all the other parts that must remain in your life instead of ignoring it because that would be like adding one piece of rotten fruit to the mix which will cause the rest of the fruit to go bad.

At the end of the day

At the end of the day you will have to live with the outcome that your actions will bring. It will not matter that after you have had time to see that had you done things a little differently it could have had a better outcome by then it is too late, what is done is done. It will not matter if you accept the blame in the end you will face the consequences at the end of the day no matter who you blame. Your tomorrows are determined by what you have done today. When you wake up you will start the day where you were at the end of the day today.

Keep it simple

As you face the challenges of the New Year keep in mind that your attitude about the challenge will determine the outcome and decide how challenging it will be. There may be a simple solution but if you react out of anger it will make it more challenging. This year face each challenge by taking a step back from any situation that angers you till you have had time to think about what your reaction should be to get the best outcome. Don't turn a simple challenge into a complex problem just simply walk away till your anger is gone and KEEP IT SIMPLE.

Only a certain number of years

As you grow older time seems to go faster. You realize that you will only be around for a certain number of years and you wish you could slow down time so that you can enjoy your time for as long as you can making every second count. When you are very young you can't wait to be a teenager. When you are a teen you can't wait to be an adult. As an adult you realize how much easier life was when you were young. When you get into middle age you panic and send yourself into mid life crises. When you get even older you enjoy every moment when you can while you can.
