You can "expect it" if you "accept it"

If you "see it" the natural human instinct is an overwhelming feeling to do something to help. For some it seems that if they pretend they didn't see it as they quickly turn away their human instinct doesn't exist. As we can see in society ignoring it merely makes it acceptable therefore it becomes a common occurrence. The more common it becomes the more likely it is to happen to you. So remember that if you "accept it" happening to someone else then you can "expect it" and "accept" that it will eventually happen to you. You can choose to "prevent it" from being accepted by not accepting it if you see it just like you would like to be able to "expect" someone to help if it was happening to you.

Only eat till you are full

On a Holiday gathering we tend to "fill our plate too full." Then when we eat it all even though it is more than we can handle and it leaves us too full to even move. In Life we also tend to take on more than we can handle and "fill our plate too full." which then makes us feel too tired. Although we want to help out whenever, wherever, and whomever is in need we need not be a gluten by taking on more than we have time to do or being a gluten by eating more than we should. Take on only what you can and only eat till you are full.

Grab the one you want

Our memories can fade over time but they can pop up vividly when triggered by sights, smells and sounds. Sometimes it is a happy memory that brings a smile to your face. At other times it is a painful nightmare that you don't need to relive again. Our mind has an endless stream of thoughts that pop up trying to "grab your attention." Unfortunately you got to deal with the good ones as well as the bad ones. How you deal with them will determine whether your "attention" is focused in a positive mode or a negative mode. At a quick glance you can choose to "grab on" to the good ones and quickly "flush away" the negative ones.

How you "react" will decide the outcome

If you let someone provoke you to "react" in a negative way then the outcome for you will be negative. If you let them behave in a negative way without "reacting" then your positive "reaction" to "not react" will bring you a positive outcome. You will reap what you sow and a negative "reaction" can bring you nothing but negativity. How they "react" will bring them what they have sown. The circumstances that they put you in you can't choose but you can choose how you "react" and choosing to do nothing is still a choice you can make that will determine the outcome for you.

Your opinion will guide you

Your opinion is the only one that matters. You will ultimately do whatever you do based on your opinion. Your opinion will be based on what you believe and you can only believe it if you see it. It is important to get all the facts before you form an opinion and to realize that without facts it is merely an uneducated guess. You will make many decisions throughout Life based on your opinion and the fact is if you want to make the right decision you will need all the facts. If you blindly guess then where you will end up in Life would be anyone's guess. Your Life's Journey will be guided by your opinions and it would be wise to get all the facts so you know how to get where you want to be.

You have no one to blame but yourself

If you want to do it then you will do it. If you keep placing blame on others you are merely making excuses so you won't have to do it. Which is exactly why you have no one but yourself to blame for not doing it. You have a choice whether to do it or not and if you choose not to then it is clearly your choice alone whether you do it or not. It is hard to imagine how those that make excuses think that others believe they had no other choice. We all have no one but ourselves to blame for the things we do or don't do. You can blame it on the moon if you want to but if you don't do what needs to be done you will have no one to blame but yourself.

Don'y keep it fresh on your mind

You could "get over it" if you would "Just Flush It" out of your mind. If you keep it fresh on your mind then it will be impossible to "get over it." It may be something that happened in your past but if you don't "Just Flush It" out of your mind then it will always be a problem today and everyday. Take the hard painful experiences from your past and "Just Flush It" out of your mind so it doesn't stink up your future. Don't keep it fresh on your mind "Just Flush It" so you can "get over it." It may keep popping into your mind again and again but if you get in the habit of flushing it at a quick glance, it won't be able to do damage again and again.

You could die of thirst surrounded by water

If you can not see it then to you it is not there. If you can see it then it doesn't matter if anyone else can see it. Trying to convince someone what you see by telling them won't make them see it. You will have to open up their mind first by showing them from a different "point of view." Once they see it then it will be possible to open their mind to view it differently. It's like the old saying "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink it". Now on the other hand if he sees other horses drinking it then he will want to drink it and after that whether other horses are there or not when you lead him to the water he will drink it because from his "point of view" it quenches his thirst.

A guarantee to have a negative outcome

How you "react" to the situation you are in will create the situation that you will have to live with. If you "react" without thinking about what your actions will bring you will have to live with the consequences of your actions. Acting on impulse to a negative situation will only guarantee that the outcome will be negative because our first reaction to a negative situation is definitely very negative. If you stop before "reacting" to think about it you will see that your first reaction would have made it worse. If you can't think of any way to "react" that won't make things worse then just "walk away." Sometimes your only choice is to do nothing at all which is still a choice you will have to make.

You can't drive looking in the rearview mirror

Always thinking about your past is like driving only looking in the rearview mirror. Without a doubt you can see how dangerous that would be not only for yourself but dangerous for everyone else on that road. In Life you got to pay attention where you are going or it too can be dangerous. If you don't watch where you are going you will eventually hit something head on and get knocked down. You can't be on the right path in Life if you don't stay focused so you see the bends and twists to stay on track. Your in the drivers seat on your Life's Journey which is why you have to look forward as you go not letting your past distract you no more than you can look in your rearview mirror when you drive your car.

Do It smarter not harder

Just because others are doing it does not make it right. I know it may seem to be an easier way but in the end it is better to do it the right way even if at the time it is hard. The wrong way will only make it harder as you are Left to struggle trying to get back on track. Now your Journey will be tougher with all the damage that leaves you with an extra load of baggage you will be carrying as a result of going off track. The hard work from the beginning to stay on track will keep your load lighter because you will have less baggage to carry on your Life's Journey. Every time you veer off track you load yourself with more baggage. Doing things right the first time is doing things smarter not harder.

While you are living it

There are always things that there is just no answer for, not even on Google. Especially if it has hurt you. There is no answer that can erase the pain yet you can make your pain worse as you try to search for an answer. In order to "forget about it" you have to forget about looking for a reason why. There are many times in Life when the only thing you can do is "shake it off" or it can bury your chances of enjoying Life. It's like the old saying "Anyone can make a mountain out of a mole hill if they keep adding dirt." The only thing you can do at these times in Life is "Just Flush It" out of your mind so you can enjoy Life while you are living it.

You need a back up plan

If you don't explore all your options then your options will be limited. If you are not open to any options then you will have no option. Keep your options open so if it becomes necessary you will have other options. Nothing is guaranteed not even the job you have now. One pink slip could leave you with no option but to quickly find another option to find a job. Keeping any and all options open is your best option. Many things can happen in Life that are not always your choice leaving you to either be thankful you have other options or with no option at all. You should always have a back up plan because things don't always go as we have planned.
