Keep your own grass green!

I don't understand why relationships and marriages are taken so lightly. Over and over again probably every second people are walking away. Being older I know how important it is to have those relationships that it takes time to build over the years. Knowing people that have your best interest at heart is huge. More on that subject in my next book. Meanwhile it seems like starting over and over again looking for that greener grass will only lead many people traveling from grass to grass only to one day find themselves alone in an abandoned field with overgrown dead grass. Maintain the lawn you got which takes regular watering and cutting to stay green.

Flush to prevent a clog

Sometimes in Life you have to deal with one thing after another. All you can do is deal with those things that you can one by one. Those things that you can't fix or make better you just have to deal with the complications they bring you and move on. By the time you deal with them all there may be more to deal with but everything you dealt with already won't be weighing heavy on your mind. Don't let things build up as you have a pity party over all that you have to deal with. "Just Do It" so you can move on to the next thing because otherwise all the "crap you got to deal with" will keep you clogged."Just Do It" so you can "Just Flush It" after you "Get 'R Done."

You may not be able to avoid it

The cold is bearing down on everyone this week. If you have to go out in it to the store you might as well stock up with everything you need to warm your belly to help you stay warm and cozy for the long week of the winter storm. Don't go out in it if you can avoid it because every time you go out you will not be able to avoid being freezing cold. In your personal life there are stormy situations that you must weather. They can come during spring summer and fall too and all you can do is try to avoid it if you can but if you can't then get prepared to weather out the storm.

Hurry before they grow up!

I laugh at the things my Grandkids do but as a parent when my kids were little I was too frustrated to laugh when they were doing the same kind of things. It is funny just how different you see things when you are the parent then you do when you are the Grandparent. Sure wish I would have relaxed and enjoyed their childhood more but you can't go back. That is why Grandparents laugh more, play more and enjoy every moment when they are with their Grandkids while they are young enough to want to play and laugh more and spend more time relaxed enjoying them, We realize when children are little you got to enjoy them before they grow up and don't spend time with you anymore.

Sad but you got to "Just Flush It" and move on

As a parent you want to protect your children from everything. Yet when they are older you just can't fix everything. It is so hard to watch them go through incredibly tough times. And although I love the words and meaning behind "Just Flush It" it doesn't ease their pain to say "Honey you got to Just flush It and move on." But all you can do is tell them the only thing you can do is "Just Flush It" out of your mind and move on. Later in Life they will be thankful that they were able to "Just Flush It."

The same applies no matter where you live

People are always saying if only this or that would happen I could be happy. But the truth is the only way to be truly Happy is to learn to be Happy with what you do have. You could be rich and buy everything you want or get that promotion and you can still be Unhappy. Happiness is a "state of mind" and it doesn't matter what you have or don't have nor does it matter what country or state you live in. The only thing that matters is whether you choose to be Happy with who you are and what you do have.

What are you waiting for?

You only get one chance at Life so make sure you enjoy Life while you are living it! You don't get do overs so whatever you do enjoy it because when your Journey is over it is over. Life is a roller coaster that is full of ups and downs and dangerous curves but it is your Life's Journey and whether you enjoy it or not is up to you. It's like my plaque says..."I asked God for all things that I enjoy Life He gave me Life to enjoy all things." There is no guarantee that tomorrow will come but it is guaranteed that every moment you are alive is another moment that you have a chance to enjoy Life while you are living it.

What will you look for Today?

Just because the weather looks gloomy outside doesn't mean you will feel all gloom and doom today. It isn't raining and the temperature is calm and cool which makes it a good day to be out and about to get things done. It really is just all "In How you look" at it. Because as you know your "point of view" is the only one you can see. The difference between a "good day" and a "bad day" sometimes is only how you view them and if all you choose to see is a "bad day" it is the only reason all you can see why it is bad about Today. If you looked for the good things about Today then you will see reasons to have a "good day."

We all expect it but...

When you are in your forties and fifties you don't expect to be facing the Health problems of someone who is old. But it turns out your body is old and if you are lucky enough to live to the "Life expectancy" age you will have to live with all the health problems along your Life's Journey. But it is something you will gladly do to live to the "Life expectancy" age because it is better then dying twenty years earlier than you expected to. Watching the news and those around you it is clear that there are many people that die before they expected despite what the "Life expectancy" age is.

It is Human Nature

I have noticed that those individuals that had a not so loving childhoods grow up to be extremely caring compassionate adults. They know what it feels like so they make sure all their interactions with others, especially children, leaves them feeling cared about. You don't have to have lived that kind of childhood to know that every person wants and deserves to be treated with compassion. We are all born with the natural instinct to be compassionate it is Human Nature. Somewhere along the way there are far too many people who are so clogged up with negativity that it is buried beneath years of crap. "Just Flush It" so we can all be treated Humanely.

A "Headline" can say a lot

Why is it that negative behavior goes viral yet positive behavior is known only to those around it? Even our "Headlines" and News is about negative situations that can remain front and center day after day sometimes even month after month yet positive behavior is barely mentioned and hardly ever repeated. Perhaps if we start talking about positive actions then we can spread a more positive behavior instead of spreading negativity. If we want a more caring positive society then we all need to do things that create "Headlines" that are about positive situations to pass on things that are positive.

Keep hold of your Life Lines

Choosing who to surround yourself with has never been more important then it is today. Do yourself a favor and be more choosy as you go through Life because in the end you will only have those around you that you surround yourself with. If you abandon the Loyal Relationships with family and those you know in your community for those "fly by night" friendships of those that come and go in Life or a cyberspace friend then it will only be a matter of time before you find yourself alone. For some people that comes at an age when all you need is a small helping hand that isn't there. Enjoy those you meet in Life but hold on to your Life Lines while you are doing it.

Built in suit of Armor

Having someone around that you know has your back if you need it is like having a built in suit of Armor to protect your mind as well. The "peace of mind" that it brings stays with you every step of the way on your Life's Journey. I am not talking about someone that is always around at your beck and call to take care of your every need. That is unrealistic. They are someone that you know if there was ever anything you really truly needed they wouldn't hesitate for a second without a doubt they would be there to help. Protecting yourself is your First Line of Defense to protect you but if you are lucky you will have someone else you can count on that gives you that extra built in suit of honor to give you "peace of mind."
