What are you planting?

It's true you reap what you sow. But you also reap what others sow too. Which is why we have to spread common courtesy, common decency and compassion. Taking the time and energy to help anyone and everyone you can to be able to plant them in their "Garden" in Life will help what you sow in your Life. It will take a village to plant all the positive things it will take so we can all benefits of what grows in our neighborhoods. Helping someone have"peace of mind" will bring peace to our neighborhoods one person at a time. You got to plant what you want to grow so that is what you will sow.

Don't let the milk spoil!

There are some people who are never happy. They complain about everything. Then there are other people who are always happy and optimistic even though they may have been dealt a bad hand in Life. The difference between them isn't because of the different circumstances they are facing. Its a choice whether they choose to be happy with what they do have. They both could have a half of a glass of milk. One sees it as half full and gladly drink it. The other one sees it as half empty and spends so much time complaining about where it is that they let the milk spoil. You could be surrounded by water yet die of thirst if you don't take a drink. I hope you will grab a cookie and enjoy it with your half a glass of milk!

Do you want to stop the insanity?

If you want things to be different then you have to do things differently than you are now. The definition to insanity is doing something the same way over and over again and expecting a different result. So to STOP the INSANITY it is time for a change. You can't always change the circumstances you are facing but changing how you react to it will change the outcome.

Its medicine without any bad side effects and it's free.

Its true. Laughter is the best medicine. When you laugh your body produces endorphins that help with pain and promote healing. And mentally it Flushes out the stress. You feel relaxed from your head to your toes from a good belly laugh. When is the last time you had a good belly laugh over something silly? Being around my grandchildren gives me lots of opportunities to laugh because they do and say the silliest things. Go ahead laugh even if it is at yourself to help Flush your way to a Healthier You.

Stop long enough

Remember the old saying " you get more bees with honey than you do with vinegar" when you are facing a situation that makes you angry. Take a step back and give yourself time to think about it. Once you have had a moment or two you can see that if you would have reacted quickly with your first reaction the situation would be worse. Those few moments make a positive difference in the outcome that you will live with for a Lifetime. Before you react STOP and figure out what reaction will bring you the best outcome considering the situation.

Freedom to enjoy it.

We are each unique in some way. If we were all the same it would be boring. You must respect the freedom of others to be different than you if you want to be respected. In one way we are all the same. Everyone wants to enjoy Life while they are living it just like you.

Be their Inspiration

A little bit of encouragement can go a long way. As you go throughout your Life give those you encounter some words of encouragement. They may not see you again nor remember your name but they will remember your words of encouragement. For some people it may be just the little light they need at times to keep moving in the right direction. You may perhaps forget but they keep them fresh on their mind. The same is true for all of us. There are just certain little things we choose to remember even though we forget most things the minute they happen.

Use your voice!

What are you passing on to the next generation? As we all can see by watching the news there is a lack of compassion. To pass it on simply takes treating everyone with compassion and when you are angry don't spread it. When you see someone mistreating someone do something to stop it or it will become acceptable. If you do nothing to stop it then you are taking part in spreading it. Choosing to do nothing is still a choice you make. Being silent is voicing your opinion that it is okay. Use your voice to Teach the Habit of Humanity.

Eliminate what you can

How you start off the New Year will determine how good of a year it will be. From the beginning you need to FLUSH whatever negative things that happened last year. It wouldn't be a New Year if you bring all the same old issues with you. You may face negative situations throughout the year that you can't solve. You have to remind yourself that letting things you can not change stress you out. It is unnecessary stress. And too much stress will only make it a stressful year. Eliminate your stress by learning to JUST FLUSH IT as it comes is necessary to truly have a Happy New Year.

They just do.

Its hard to watch someone you love go through such tough times. You know they don't deserve it and yet still it is happening. There is nothing you can do but be there to listen. There is no answer to why some things happen but except that they just happen. It doesn't fix their problems they are facing to say to them things just happen but it will help them to quit searching for a reason why. Which will help them clear their mind so they can focus on what to do to handle the situation they are facing.

"Use it or lose it"

Staying busy is part of maintaining your overall well being. You get your exercise physically doing it. Mentally it keeps your mind actively thinking. Keep repeating the saying "Use it or lose it". It will keep you moving and staying busy even when you are too tired to even think let alone get up and get moving.

You only get one chance

We each are given only one lifetime. What you do in it and enjoy of it is up to you. We all know someone that every time you see them they are full of anger about something. And they spew their anger on you zapping your joy. Let them be the example of what you would be like if you didn't FLUSH your anger as it comes. In order to enjoy Life you have to FLUSH because crap happens in life. That's just Life. Don't miss out on enjoying your Life complaining about the things you don't like.
