I knew it was Spring just by hearing the birds singing and chirping outside my windows. It was time to start the Spring Cleaning. I took down the curtains to wash. When the windows were cleaned I went to get the curtains out of the dryer. They were still wet. So I started the dryer and got busy putting clean sheets on the beds. I went back to the dryer and they were still wet. I realized my dryer was broke and I had to go buy a new one right in the middle of spring cleaning. As I waited outside for my husband to go to the store. I was walking around when a bird with a twig in his mouth swooped low beside me straight behind a bush. After he flew away I walked over to see his nest and there in my dryer vent he had built his nest. I quickly pulled a foot long nest. I went inside and turned on my dryer. Twenty minutes later I hung up my curtains. Later my husband went out and replaced the broken slats on the dryer vent so he could not build there again. I wander what the bird thought when the nest he had worked so hard on was now hidden behind a plastic wall.

Too much free time is not always a good thing. We all need a little free time but too much of a good thing is not good. Its sort of like we all tend to do on Thanksgiving. We all eat way more than we should knowing that it isn't healthy but we do it every year. One day a year though is not bad but it would be a problem if you did it every day. Too much free time can give you too much time to think of things excessively which isn't healthy. Especially if you are facing negative situations you need to stay busy so you can Just Flush It out of your mind by concentrating on something else. You can FLUSH out the negative thoughts by filling your mind with other thoughts.

As I watch my Son dealing with situations with his children I usually end up laughing. I begin realizing that I am watching the Circle of Life. I can laugh now but I sure wasn't laughing when my children were young and doing the same kind of things. My son was the one that wasn't laughing now. In some situations he welcomes ny words of wisdom as I pass on what I have learned. Other times if I begin to utter a word I see by the look on his face that it is wise if I just walk away and laugh silently inside.

The only difference in being happy or not is whether you choose to be happy or not. If you are waiting until everything is perfect in your Life to enjoy it then you will never enjoy it. This reminds me of a plaque I saw that said ...It can be home sweet home if you adjust as you go. Sometimes all you have to do is make the necessary adjustments. Which can be as simple as adjusting your attitude about it. How you look at it will determine the outcome so look closely and you will see a bright side to the situation you are facing.

There are some people that every time you talk to them you know they are only going to talk about negative things. It zaps the peace right out of you as you listen. It's like seeing a mud puddle and choosing whether to walk around it or stepping right in it and getting your shoes all muddy. They may choose to get stuck in the mud but you can choose not to let them drag you into the mud with them. Letting them zap your joy won't help them suddenly be joyful but in an instant they can turn your smile upside down.

Take your time and do it right because you may not have time to do it over. If you try to do it only halfway you will have simply wasted your time and energy. Going fast just to quickly get it done doesn't mean it is done right. Take pride in doing it right so you can be proud of what you do. Make sure that it is something that you really need to do so you can spend your time and energy on what really matters in Life.

Everyone has a bad day once in a while. At these times you need to remember the old saying "If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all". These are times when biting your tongue is less painful then the consequences of your words. Whoever said words can never hurt you was wrong. And once you say them out loud or in cyberspace ink they are permanent so you can't take them back. Just because it suddenly pops up in your mind doesn't mean it. Should fly out of your mouth.

How do you fix what took generations to create? Far too many parents for generations have children that they then neglect and ignore. Who then grow up shattered and broken. They show their hurt and anger I school and all throughout their lives. They make learning and feeling safe at school impossible for every student. As adults they make our neighborhoods feel unsafe. If we want the World to be a better place it starts with making sure all kids feel loved and safe as we teach them how to stand loud and proud as adults.

You would have a chance if you would quit saying over and over again that you have no chance at all. At times you can be your own worst enemy. As you list all the reasons why you have no chance you talk yourself out of even trying at all. Do you remember the story about The Little Engine who could? He told himself over and over again chanting I think I can. And before he knew it he had done it. Flush away your doubts from your mind and there will be no doubt you will Get 'r done.d

As I watch the news it's hard to believe that all the violence they are talking about is happening right in my neighborhood. All over our neighborhoods are being over taken by violence. It won't get better on it's own we all must do our part. If you see someone being mistreated stop it if you can. If you ignore it then it will become acceptable behavior that will become common. If you don't speak up now forever no one can have peace of mind. Once upon a time we all had the Freedom to Live without fear. Freedom isn't free it means we all have to fight the violence so we can all have the Freedom to Live without Fear in our neighborhoods.

As I sit in a crowded waiting room I can't help but notice the other people waiting around me. On days the doctor is behind schedule you can see it in their expressions without them uttering a word. I began to wander if they knew what their face was saying. In all encounters you have with others their faces say it all. There are always a few who you know that their anger at that moment was raising their blood pressure. Which was obvious because of the bulging tightened veins in their neck. Not to mention the redness in their face as no blood could get through the tightened veins. And an aura of rage was filling the air around them. I just want to shout at them "Whatever is bothering you JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind before it squeezes' the very Life out of you." If it isn't a Life or death situation then don't make it one.

Things happen sometimes that make you stop for a second and think how on earth could that have even happened. When it does you have to decide whether you are going to let it ruin your day. Or are you going to simply Just Flush It out of your mind by laughing in awe that it even could have happened. Its like watching someone you know stumble and fall and you automatically laugh. Your not laughing because they fell you are just laughing how they just fell out of the blue.

You have many choices to make throughout your life. There may only be a few big ones but many little decisions as you live moment to moment. Each decision is important will you make the right decision? Once made your life is altered to some degree. Which is why every decision you make is important including choosing what you ignore because even choosing to do nothing is a choice you make.
