You learn as you go

Some things you won't understand until you experience it. Some things you learn through watching those you know experience it. You can't just assume you know. You can guess but without real knowledge it is a guess that won't necessarily be anywhere near the actual facts. And without the facts then I guess you may make the wrong decision. If you are in doubt then I doubt that getting the facts is no doubt the only decision you should make. If you don't learn before you get the facts then you will learn the hard way that your guess was wrong.

The price you pay

There are times throughout your Life when you are your own worst enemy. Of course there are many things you go through that are due to no fault of your y. But how you react to even those will determine just how badly you are affected by them. If it is something that has hurt you or angered you then take a moment or two or three, to think about it before you react. Because your first reaction will be an angry defense reaction that can and will only make things worse for you. The damage you will have to endure won't be just from what happened to you it will be the price you because of how you chose to react to it.

Spend your time wisely

Time flies by and every moment you have you have to use wisely. To enjoy every moment you have to not waste your time thinking about what has happened in your past. Those moments are gone you can't change them no matter how often you think about them. You miss out on the chance to enjoy the moment you are living in now. Today is yours to enjoy so flush your painful past. Remember tomorrow may never come so enjoy Life while you are living it.

What do you see?

When you are waiting to see only the brightest star you over look the other well placed stars like the little dipper. When you search for only the faults of others you won't see the good things about them. When you look for trouble you will find it. You can only see what you look for. If you only think about the negative moments from your past you won't get a chance to remember any of the good memories. Things in life happen but how you look at them will determine what see. Look for the good things in a situation and that is what you will find.

You can't stop the rain

Instead of getting angry when it seems to rain every afternoon for months you need to learn when not to go out. You can plan your daily outside duties to make sure you don't make plans between 3-5. Getting angry that it rains everyday is stress that you could have avoided. Which less stress is a physically healthy choice since stress makes you physically sick. And when you see the devastating fires in California you should be thankful that it is raining every afternoon where you live. Accept the things you can not change because getting angry is not going to stop the rain it will only make you unhealthy.

What are you passing on?

As the Circle of Life rolls on you learn all you need to in the first half. The second half is when you have a chance to make Life easier for the next generation. Don't pass on your anger. Don't pass on your debt. Don't pass on your bad habits. Don't pass on nor excuse bad behavior. Pass on Love, compassion for others, Hope and make this World a better place. One random act of kindness can spread but only if we each choose to pass it on to others will it spread. The World won't get better on it's own we all must do our part.

Cross it off your"to do list"

There are times when your"to do list" is stressful just to even think about. You can feel physically tired by just thinking. To keep from being overwhelmed,separate your list into smaller list. What has to get done from what would be nice to get done and cross off anything that really doesn't matter if it gets done at this moment. You will be surprised how much you actually get done when you have less stress by simply concentrating on only one short list at a time. In Life some things are just mind over matter and it helps when you take what really doesn't matter and"JFI" out of your mind.

You can't take it back

Once it flies out of your mouth, you can't take it back. Thoughts that anger you should be flushed out of your mind before they spew out of your mouth onto others. They should be flushed before they fester inside you raising your blood pressure. Remember if you write it in cyberspace permanent ink it is still flying out of your mouth. You can hit delete all you want but it is permanent ink so remember that before you hit send.

What you spread we all sow.

The World won't get better on its own as we can all see as we watch the news. We all must do our part. There is no magic wand that can be waved to fix it either. It has to start with you and I. Every seed of kindness we plant as we go through our day will one day be a harvest that every person in the World can benefit from. Its true you reap what you sow. Remember that when you are angry and JUST FLUSH IT so it doesn't spread to others which will help to stop the insanity we see in society.

Get in the habit

There are some things that happen so fast there is nothing you can do about it. But the lack of empathy and compassion for other Human Beings is not one of them. For decades from one generation to another we have created it by passing on our anger, frustration and self centeredness. We are all born with compassion but are taught from those around us. Get in the Habit of passing along the compassion for others to replace the insanity we see in society. Teach the Habit of Humanity.

Everything leads to something

Every thing good and bad that happens leads you to where you will go in Life. And sometimes you have a tornado rip through it and it is hard to understand that even being uprooted and battered was necessary. It may just be the only way you could get where you were meant to be. Your actions during and after the storm will determine whether you grow where you have been planted. If you choose to stand there stomping your feet in anger because it happened you can't grow roots anywhere.

Your actions and your words are your choice

Your true character is judged on what you do and say. Your bad behavior is judged by what you have done and said. Your kindness can only benefit someone if you do or say something kind. No matter what has been done or said to you in your past you still have a choice about everything you do or say today. We all have had things that have been done or said to us that we could place blame. But you can only blame yourself for what you do and for the words that come out of your mouth that you say. What do your actions and words say about you?

No guarantee of tomorrow

Those that say 50 is the new 30 are lying. Your body feels like it is 50. One thing though when you are 50 you realize you are running out of time and having the physical ability to be able to do the things that you have put off since you were 30. So if there is anything you plan on doing hurry up and Just Do It! Without a doubt by age 50 you have seen enough to know that you can't keep putting it off till tomorrow because for some of those you have loved have died before tomorrow came. Yesterday has already gone and tomorrow may never come but today is yours to enjoy.
