Without the setback you could still be lost

Not every step you take in the right direction is monumental but every step you take is just as important as the "big ones" to keep you on course. There are times when you feel as if you take one step forward only to fall two steps back. The setbacks are a necessary part to get you where you need to be which you would not have realized had you not fallen two steps back. It forces you to look with your eyes wide open so you could see which way to go to stay heading in the right direction which will make it monumentally important because otherwise you could still be lost.

"I" can only and always be "you"

Whenever you say "I give", "I can't" or "I won't" then you can't place blame on anyone but "you." Whenever you say "I did" you are taking ownership for it. When you say "I will" you know that you are the one who will have to do it. When you say "No I won't" then you are letting everyone know you personally will not be doing it. Whenever you use the word "I" you have to take ownership for it because "I" can only and always be "You." You will be the only one responsible whenever you say the word "I."

It's not a "staircase" till you build steps

The phrase "slow and steady wins the race" is about a Life Philosophy. The race between the tortoise and the rabbit is an example to remind you that taking your time and staying focused will get you the positive outcome you want. Anything worth having is worth your full attention to make sure you stay focused. Don't waste your time or energy on finding a short cut that like the rabbit it will lead you just short of where you planned to be. Each step in Life that you take is just as important as each step in a staircase is to get you where you want to be. It's not a "staircase" till you build the steps.

Only a small fraction are worth grabbing

It is easy to get distracted by all the thoughts that stream through endlessly in your mind trying to "grab your attention." If you lose focus and choose to give any of them a second thought then be prepared because once it has "grabbed your attention" it will bombard you with thoughts that will consume your entire thinking process. If it is a positive thought then it will have a positive outcome. Problem is if it is a negative thought it can only lead you to a negative outcome. Although the number of positive thoughts are only a small fraction in the endless thought stream they are the only ones you should grab on to which means you will spend most of your time flushing all the negative ones.

Start every day with a chance to have a good day

As you wake up in the morning remember it is a New Day so don't jump out of bed thinking about all the negative things that happened yesterday. Why? Well if you want to have a clear fresh mind to start your day off right you'll have to not fill it with things that were clogging it up last night. Every day is a chance to have a "good day" but you will have to "Flush Away A Bad Day" if you are going to have any chances at all. Yesterday you can not change and tomorrow may never come. You see today is the only one you can enjoy so don't spend it thinking about yesterday.

Choose NOT to say it out loud

Screaming and yelling at each other is not Healthy nor is it considered communicating with someone. The energy that is used to be the one who's doing the yelling or to be the one being yelled at is mind boggling. As your blood pressure rises and your muscles tighten your organs get squeezed turning the Mental Anguish into Physical Distress. The old saying "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all" seems to be something we need to say more often because people have been letting whatever pops in their mind fly out their mouth. Don't let your anger spew on to others by simply choosing to NOT say it out loud.

Would've, Could've, and Should've never helps anyone

Don't be the one that says..... I wish I WOULD'VE .....helped. I COULD'VE least... I SHOULD'VE .....done something. Would've, Could've, and Should've never helps anyone. A spontaneous reaction to help needs to happen when you feel it. Your first thought of a random act of kindness that you spontaneously think of must be acted on so you can say... I did what I COULD. That SHOULD help them a little. I simply did what I WOULD hope someone WOULD do for me if I needed it.

It spreads to people who you will never know

They may not remember your name nor even what you look like but they will never forget your kindness. A random act of kindness will not only be remembered, it is a seed that you planted which will grow and help them to pass it on. One thing leads to another so as long as you get it started with the first random act of kindness your seed will grow spreading kindness to people you will never know. As time goes on the list will grow of those who's lives were touched by your simple act of kindness. They don't have to know where it started all they know is they are simply glad it did.

A Happy Feeling that is un-describable

I wish I could find the right words to describe what it feels like to do a random act of kindness. The best ones are the ones you do for a total stranger. There are times when in passing through our busy day we cross paths with someone and you can just feel their pain. Your random act of kindness no matter how small can be just the thing they need to help them Flush away a bad day. What it feels like to be the one to be doing the act of kindness is what I wish I could describe to you. It will fill you from head to toe with a Happy Feeling that is un-describable. What you do to make others happy will make you Happy.

A Healthy Lifestyle includes maintaining Mental Stress

After you have a stressful argument with someone your body and mind feel like you just ran a marathon. Chances are if you were arguing then you really didn't come up with a workable agreement. In the end you made matters worse not only the relationship with the person you were arguing with but your Overall Health as well. Relationships usually recover in time but the Physical damage is done and that you can never fully recover from. You must realize that Mental Stress leads to Physical Distress. Maintaining Good Physical Health is more than watching what you eat and getting plenty of exercise you must also avoid Mental Stress as well for your overall Physical Well Being.

Don't let it literally Bug you to death

There is One reason alone that should be enough to not let any person or any thought affect you in a negative way.... Physically it will kill you! If you let it bug you to death then it will be the death of you. NO ONE nor anything is worth dying for. Stressing your Heart out by squeezing tightly in reaction to the negativity is literally squeezing the life out of you. Your organs can not function properly as your muscles tighten around them as you grit your teeth tightly in anger. Next time you feel your jaw tightening out of anger ask yourself "Is this worth dying for?" Don't let it literally Bug you to death.

Subconsciously you hid it from yourself

Sometimes what you thought you saw that was stressing you out turned out to be a "horse of a different color." Take for instance when viewing a home to rent you thought the countertops were yellow and thought it was a horrible kitchen you would have to live with. Truth is when you moved in the countertops were mostly black in it's marbled look. Now how is that even possible? Perhaps your mind subconsciously knew that it would be a pleasant surprise that you would need the first day you moved in to help you love it even more.

You could regret putting it off

We can all debate on what happens to those that are dead after they leave this Earth. One thing is for sure that we all can agree on is the fact that the ones that are left to grieve must live with the would've, could've and should've list we regret. The fact is that once they are gone so are your chances to have no regrets of what you wish you would have said or done. If there is something that you know you would regret if you did not do then Just Do It! Putting off what you can do today might be what you regret you didn't do tomorrow.
