Maybe maybe not

Sometimes you overwhelm yourself with things that don't really matter in the big picture in your life. Don't make things that you really don't have to do weigh heavy on your mind. It's ok to make a Maybe or Maybe not list. And its ok to not put things on your list that you don't want to do.

It's your choice, its your Life.

You hear people say all the time the reasons why they are who they are. They give credit to those who inspired them. Then there are those who are placing blame on others for their actions. Everything you do is up to you. You choose whether to be honest or not the same as whether you eat pizza or a hamburger for dinner. It's your Life and what happens to you throughout Life simply helps you choose wisely. Being happy in the skin your in requires being happy with what you are doing in the skin your in. You have no one to blame but yourself. You won't learn from your mistakes if you don't admit you made one.

Even if the sun isn't shining

A good day is not based on the weather outside. Nor is it based on the storms you may be facing in your personal life. Just waking up in the morning makes it a good day. Being able to spend time with those you care about makes it a good day. Everyday can be a good day if you focus on what's really important instead of complaining about a cloudy day.

Three strikes

It's a good time to think about where you are, what you are dealing with and where you plan to be in your future. It's time to make the necessary changes to ensure you enjoy who you are,where you are every moment you can. It's not about what you have nor what you don't have its simply making the most of what you have. To be happy in the skin your in you have to be happy with what you do in the skin you are in.

Circles squares and diamonds

We are all unique. Our differences are as different as a circle and a square. There are many differences but some similarities that keep us connected. If we were all the same there wouldn't be anything to talk about. It takes many shapes and sizes to build a better World.

A day a father deserves

Sunday is Fathers Day and a chance to let him know how much you appreciate all he does for the whole family. When my son picked a card I was unsure if he would take as a compliment. But it certainly was a message to all parents. It showed a father driving a car then inside it simply said in case you are wondering your kids are listening.

How will you know?

One thing is for sure you will never know unless you try. You learn as you go but what you learn depends on what you do or learn through others what not to do. If you don't know you can find out only by trying it. Just remind yourself that your worst regrets in life are for the things you did not do. So if you want to know if you can just do it.

Storage Unit V.S. A Home

When you are young you dream of moving out of your parents house and getting your own place. Then you spend a Lifetime of working yourself to death to continually have whatever you desire. Problem is you work so hard to pay for it that you don't really have any time to enjoy it. In simpler times houses were smaller, TV's were smaller and if it wasn't broke you didn't run out and buy a New one. Instead today we fill our homes with things we don't need that we then have to make payments on. Instead of relaxing in our homes spending time together as a Family it becomes a storage unit filled with stuff that you have to work overtime to pay for. Leaving no time or energy to enjoy it. The simple solution is to KEEP IT SIMPLE.

It changes over time

When you are young your point of view is cloudy so you can focus on what's fun. As you reach middle aged your point of view changes as you go. When you become a half century old your point of view has widened so you can see clearly and choose which direction you should go. When you reach your seventies your point of view becomes cloudy again so you can focus on what's important to you.

Some parts you forget

I decided to make an old family recipe that I hadn't had since I was a kid. I called two family members and they both had the same recipe. Which means it should have tasted like I remembered. But it was awful. I doubled checked the recipe and without a doubt I had made it correctly. A few days later I was talking to my brother who reminded me we didn't like it as kids either. I guess the pleasant memory of eating dinner with my family was the memory I remembered so strongly that I had forgotten how bad the food actually tasted.

Electronic free moments

When I was young I remember spending a lot of time going to company picnics and church Weiner roasts. Back then people gathered regularly to just sit and talk while they ate. Nowadays it's fast food and alone time lost in electronic gadgets. Which makes no time for "small talk" and having human contact that is necessary to connect to your human side.make times where everyone turns off their phones and gadgets and talk to each other as we share our dinner even if it is take out food.

Today is the day.

Yesterday has already gone. Tomorrow may never come. But today is yours to enjoy. You can't change what you did yesterday and you can hope you have tomorrow but today you get to do whatever you choose to do.

They learn by example

As you can see when you watch the news there seems to be an epidemic of people with no compassion. From a young age you should be taught to have a compassionate heart. If all you are surrounded by is examples of adults who's actions and words show no compassion for others then you will have no compassion. Every home is a classroom and those adults around you are the teachers. It's that simple. So what are they being taught? Teach the Habit of Humanity to stop the insanity we see in society.
