Freedom is to be free to be who you are

Everyone has their own opinion. Our differences in opinion are part of what makes each of us different. You don't have to agree with anyone's opinion but you need to respect their right to have their own opinion. Just like what music they listen to, what foods they eat or how they dress it is their choice. The freedom to be who we want to be is what freedom is all about. If we don't stand up to let freedom ring then eventually none of us will have freedom. If you don't like it then it is something that you don't like but others are free to like it. Your opinion matters to you and their opinion matters to them just as much.

As long as there is hope

Without hopes and dreams you are left with dread and hopelessness. You have to dream and hope for the best. Or you will feel fear and misery. You can dream about winning the lottery even though you know you have to keep working to pay the bills. You can hope that everything is going to be alright but you still have to be prepared for whatever comes your way. Your dreams can't come true if you don't have any dreams. Hoping for the best allows you to see a chance for the best. As long as you have a chance you will have something to hope for.

Your thoughts are your reality!

Choose your thoughts wisely because your thoughts are your reality. How you look at things is the only thing you see. Even if others around you see things differently it won't make any difference. Your reality is purely based on what you think it is. Your point of view is determined on how you look at things. If all you see is doom and gloom then you need to look for any bright and cheery that is hidden. Before you know it you just might find that if you seek you shall find. If you don't look for it then you will never find it.

What happened to common courtesy, common sense, and common decency?

Choosing to do nothing is still a choice you make. People complain about the wrong doings but they choose to do nothing to stop it or prevent it. Even when it doesn't take much effort to do so. We can all see the World isn't, can't, and won't get better on it's own. We all must do our part. Wrong doings have been ignored and they have now become common. It took generations to get society in the mess it is in. And it will take all the generations to unite together to clean up the mess that it has created. Let's join together to make common courtesy, common sense and common decency common again.

Neighbors watching out for each other makes a great neighborhood

In the old times you knew your neighbors would tell your parents if you did something wrong. And you knew your parents would punish you for it. Nowadays your neighbors don't bother to tell parents because they don't care or bother to correct their kids. After generations of this it has led to neighbors being afraid to say anything to parents or police. If you try to stand up for what is right you will be knocked down. If you want to feel safe in your neighborhood you have to make sure all your neighbors feel safe.

What did you leave behind?

What will they remember about you? What influence did you make in their lives? You would like to think that you made a positive influence. But what did they take from you? We all want to leave this World a better place because of us. Your material possessions probably won't help anyone. I have watched someone's lifettime of possessions be thrown in the trash. You hope that you contributed to enriching many people's life while you were alive. I hope that learning how to Just Flush It will make a positive difference to others.

Hide and seek is about to begin!

The eggs are dyed a rainbow of colors. And there are a few grey ones that were soaked in all the colors mixed together. The grandkids fingers were a rainbow of colors too. When Sunday comes they will finally get to dress in  their new outfits. Then with a grin from ear to ear they will eagerly await to play hide and seek. They can hardly wait inside with their baskets in their hand ready to bolt outside when the hunt begins. By the end of the day we always seem to have a few eggs that never get found. Even though there is a chance the dogs may have ate them it is hard for them to stop hunting for them. Then When you do you are hoping the dog ate them so you don't have to smell rotten egg in a week or so. Happy Easter Everyone.

Have you ever wandered what is the purpose of it?

As you live throughout your lifetime there are many things you go through that you say, what was the purpose of that anyways? You know that everything happens for a reason but that reason is not always known in every step you had to take. You just have to take things as they come and think about what steps you will take as you go.  You may hate bridges but if you have to you will cross that bridge if and when it  comes.

Why was he doing it?

The thought of a painful bee sting can discourage humans from getting too close. But apparently butterflies don't fear them at all. I watched a butterfly attack a bee like he was Ali. Ali's catch phrase I float like a butterfly but I sting like a bee kept running through my mind as I watched him. I couldn't figure out why the butterfly was bugging him anyways. There were plenty of other flowers around that he could have went to for pollen. Was he trying to save some for other butterflies? Or was he just bored. Perhaps he knew that I would enjoy watching him.

It is what it is

Sometimes the best outcome you can hope for is getting barely what you need. It may not be what you earned or deserve but it is what it is. The truth is it could have been worse so be thankful it is what it is. Remember there are some who are dealt a far worse outcome. To enjoy what you have you have to see your glass as half full. Or you will be miserable while you try to figure out why the glass is half empty. Either way you look at it you only have a half of a glass which is enough to keep you from dying of thirst.

You simply have to simplify it!

There are times in Life when you may be facing more than you can handle. As thoughts fill your mind it makes it hard to have any room to think about how to solve anything. It makes even routine task you do daily seem impossible. You will have to clear your mind to be able to figure out what to do and how to do it. Find a quiet time, turn off your phone, grab a bite to eat and prioritize the issues you are facing. As you make your list eliminate anything that is not really important so you can JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind to make your "to do" list smaller. Tackle the most important one first. The more simplified your list is the simpler it will be to take care of what you need.
