Roads to no where

There is that aggravating road work going on all around me to add another lane of traffic. Both the little roads around me and a highway road going over through what was woods. Property owners along the road are loosing at least 15 feet of their yards with now a busy road with roaring cars right outside there windows. And what was once barely a yard for both the dog and kids to each enjoy is turned in to a lot of poop on their shoes if you don't poop scoop fast enough. I don't even live in a big city just a little country town with just enough stores to accommodate us and five stores in our two little strip malls are empty. So why are they spending all the budget making more lanes?

It starts with you

Teachers play an important role in children's lives. They have them 9 months out of a year for 13 years. Each teacher has them for 9 months just like they stay in a mothers womb. Unfortunately schools have become full of bullies that no one seems to notice or they choose to pretend they don't see it. Our children should be safe while they are there. In society we have ignored so many wrong doings that bad behavior has become accepted therefore bad behavior is something we all have to expect. It starts with each one of us and if you want a safer and caring society then don't ignore the bad behavior and be a savior to the victim and Stop it.

Did you remember?

Hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day as you remembered all your loved ones who have passed away before you. I live too far away from the graveyard where my family is buried so taking flowers are not an option. I think about them just the same. I assigned certain insects that I see in nature so I can think of them spontaneously throughout the year. Although I miss them it brings me a smile when I see the particularly bug from time to time that I smile as I see it in natures beautiful setting. When I die I have decided a red head woody wood pecker.

Anger can literally squeeze the Life out of you

It's OK to be disappointed and even angered by situations you are forced to face especially when they are through no fault of your own. But if you let anger build inside of you then you will only disappoint yourself and it will simply make you angrier. And as that anger squeezes tight on your organs you cause physical damage. What happened to anger you is still there and you have to deal with it yet you have made yourself too sick to deal with it. Remember"It's OK to sit on your pity potty every now and again just be sure to FLUSH when you are done". FLUSH away your anger before it literally sqeezes the LIFE out of you.

Halfway up Mt. Everest

When the going gets tough don't give up. You will only waste all the hard work that you put into it already. That work was what it took to get you to this tough stage which is just a part of what it takes to get you where you have been working so hard to get. It's like those who's goal it is to climb Mt. Everest. It takes a lot of hard work to get to the middle of the mountain and they know the last half Will be their hardest. Whatever goal you are working toward will take hard work to achieve but if it is what you want then you will have to work as hard as it takes to achieve it. If you keep stopping halfway and give up then you won't get anywhere.

Should have bit your tongue

I wish you had a built in system that could keep your mouth shut not allowing you to "react" to a negative situation until you have had time to think about it. Because your first reaction to something negative is full of anger as you go in defense mode and once you say it out loud or in permanent cyberspace ink you can't take it back. Then you have the consequences of your actions on top of the original dilemma you were having to face. What you were going to have to deal with would have been hard enough if it angered you. But when you go off spewing your anger out then you can obviously see that the problems you created for yourself are far worse then it would have been if you would have just had taken the time to think about what your negative"reaction" would cause.

The five year limit

I saw a show on hoarders the other day and they suggested if you haven't used it in five years then without thinking throw it out. I started laughing because in the last couple of weeks I have found many baskets and cabinets filled with things that I said I had not seen in over five years. I bet if you looked around your house you would also find those collections of items that bring back memories from five years ago or more. So I have made a plan to bring out when the kids are out for summer break and use whatever we can and before the end of summer drop. It all off at goodwill. We all have things that we have Hoarded

Stop or keep moving?

Those who always thought the grass was always greener on the other side and one day they cross the line to see don't get to come back across when they see that it was an illusion. Too many people are quick to throw away their jobs, homes and even their family these days. Instant gratification and believing in something that they know is not right is crippling family unity and stability everywhere. They need to consider that they will lose everything they have worked hard to build that takes years to build. If they don't stop somewhere and work on keeping their own grass green then they will have to keep moving from grass to grass each time they just let the grass die wherever they are.

Instead of a present give them a break

I hope all you Mothers enjoyed your special day yesterday. Being a Mother is a very important job. Now that my children are grown and they want to buy me something special it stresses me out knowing they can't afford it and there is nothing I need. Finally my grown son heard me. This year he brought his son over and cleaned and vacuumed my car out. Now that I needed. The best gift you can give anyone especially your Mom is to just spend time together and help them out with a task to give them less to do. Now that is a present that gives them the break they need.

Keep it innocent for as long as you can

When you are young your vision is narrowed to only the things that look fun or interesting to you. Oh the innocence of that way of thinking makes for a less stressful day. Unfortunately as you grow so too does your vision of the things you are able to see and they are no longer innocent fun. The World seems more like a big open space where you are surrounded by some scary facts. So let children enjoy their childhood by keeping their narrowed view of their homes, schools and neighborhoods an innocent happy view not throw the cold hard facts for them to be frightened by what they live in. Keep it innocent for as long as you can and let the kid inside of you see it too.

The season of change

When it was time to trim the trees in the yard I sat on my porch that early morning to admire how luscious and big they had grown that year. I was thinking about all the cool breezes that they brought as the leaves swayed about in the wind. Then it began, the sawing and cutting as big limbs were falling to the ground with a thud. It was an awful sight as they were all laying all around. We drug them to the back to burn another day. And luckily just as we had done every year the day before the cutting began, we had picked out all the plants for each space. They were always beautiful with their bright vivid colors and the smell that fragranced the air. Seasons are going to change,that's just Life si adjust. In your personal Life there are also seasons of change and you just have to adjust if you want to enjoy Life.

Choosing to do nothing is still a choice

When you doubt yourself then the truth is there is no doubt you won't succeed at whatever it is because without a doubt you won't even try. Problem is most people blame it on someone or something else instead of accepting full responsibility for not even trying. There is a big difference between being unable to do something and being able to do it but just not trying. No matter who or what you blame you are where you are and that is where you will stay. Its your Life to live but admit it is a choice you made that lead you there because choosing to do nothing is still a choice.

We all have a role in it

If everyone would do what is right, which what each of us do is part of the overall make up of our society, then no one will be left behind to face this cruel world alone. Even though you may not be the one being cruel to them if you simply ignore it while someone else is doing it to them or anyone else then you are a part of making it an acceptable behavior that makes our society a cruel world that we are all forced to live in. No matter what generation you are from it will take people from every generation to clean up the overall mess society is in because it took many generations to get to the state it is in. The World won't get better on its own we all must do our part.
