Sometimes it is best to say nothing

When you are angry you need to make sure you don't spew it onto others. Sometimes telling someone about what has angered you can help you to JUST FLUSH IT out so you can forget about it.  But sometimes you are so angry that it is best if you don't say anything at all. Lashing out at others won't make you feel any better all that will do is spew it onto others. When angry thoughts instantly pop up into your mind it doesn't mean it should fly out of your mouth just as fast. You might get over your anger but the angry words you said to others they won't get over.

Allowing it is saying it's ok to be done

The wrongdoings you see happening that you ignore and allow it to continue is saying go ahead keep doing that it's OK with me. Really? Well keep in mind that if you accept that as acceptable behavior then you better expect it to one day happen to you or someone you love. Because when it becomes acceptable it becomes more common of an occurrence. The saying is...Do unto others as you would want done for you. Add to that what you let happen to others will happen to you. If you want to prevent it from happening to you or someone you love then you have to prevent it from happening to others. Doing the right thing means everything will be alright for you too.

You have to acknowledge it so you know what you need to let go of.

There are some questions that there are simply no answers to, not even on Google. Things happen in life that's just life. Wasting your time looking for an answer to why something may have happened or how on earth it could have even happened at all when there isn't an answer is a waste of time. The sooner you can accept it for what it is the sooner you can forget about it. Keeping it fresh on your mind will just keep wasting your time today. Acknowledge it for what it is then JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so you can enjoy every moment that you have.

Your thoughts are your reality

If you believe it is true then no matter what anyone else says it is a true fact. And your reality is based on what you believe to be true. That is why when you hear something you have to get as many facts as you can about it before you believe what you heard. Your thoughts are your reality do trying to find the positive in every situation so your reality can be a positive one. If all you look for is the negative effects then it will effect your reality negatively. It sounds simple to just think happy thoughts like Peter Pan and fly but the reality is we will definitely never fly. Our minds are bombarded with an endless stream of thoughts both positive and negative. Choosing which thought you let grab your attention is your choice. So to always choose a positive one is a no brainer.

You can go so fast you miss it

There is always something that you need to do. Sometimes you start rushing to get it all done. But in your rush you don't have time to enjoy the little things along the way. A trip downtown usually meant lunch on the water while you were there. But if you have to rush to get to your next errand all you get for lunch is a drive thru burger. It will fill you up but it sure ain't worth the drive. When you rush through the grocery store the thing you needed most didn't come to your mind as you sprinted in and out. The faster you go means the less you will see as you go. Stop and smell the roses.

It takes years of experience

Knowing who has your back in case you fall takes years to know. You meet people throughout your life who you instantly have a connection with. But a connection and a bond are two different things. It takes years of experiences and many compromises along the way to build a bond. You are lucky if you have a handful of people over your lifetime that you truly have a bond with. You have to make the time to stay connected with each and everyone of them to stay bonded. Although text and Facebook keep you both up to date on each other making the time to call and hear their voice keeps you connected on a human level. If you can meet up with them to get a hug that feels way better than a facebook poke. To have that human bond you have to have human contact.

Weigh it out

We need the rain although getting wet isn't fun. We need the sun but we need to wear sunscreen to protect us from it's harmful rays. To get what you need you have to take what you get and adjust to make it work for you. In every situation or circumstances in life you have to as they say, take the good with the bad. When it comes to nature you do not have a choice you just have to take it as it comes and make the best of the situation. But in most aspects of your life you do have some choices to make. And whenever you weigh things out if the good doesn't outweigh the bad you got to JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind and forget about it.

One person at a time

You may think that the problems will take more than you can do to resolve and you are right. But there are things you can do to help. You would be surprised how one random act of kindness can spread. World peace is even possible by bringing peace of mind to one person at a time. Something as simple as your mood can make those around you either happy or frazzled. Your words, your actions and your mood are what you choose but your choices affect those around you.

The truth may hurt but a lie could be devastating

Sometimes the truth can hurt but you truly know where you stand and you know what you have to work with. When someone lies to you it gives you false hopes that keep you waiting causing you to not look for another way to get done what you need. Sad part is most of the time they know they have no intentions of following through. Why can't they just give you an honest no so you know you need to keep looking for other alternatives? What is even scarier is that people can lie to your face and you can't even tell that they are lying. There are some people who even lie to themselves about what they have said or done so many times that they seem to believe it. If I lied my hands would become sweaty and my conscious would be telling me that wasn't right. You have to wander if there are people among us that have no conscious at all inside them.

Complaining can zap your joy

As you experience things throughout your life there will be bumps along the way. Suddenly you may be faced with a situation that complicates everything. You find yourself complaining about it and you get in a rant and before you know it you are consumed by it. It is what it is unless you can't get over it and you become immobilized by it. Acknowledge it for what it is and then learn how you are going to deal with it to move forward. Complaining about it Just zaps your energy.

What's eating you is just as important as what you are eating

Every minute that you are stressed out is dangerous to your health. Stress causes your blood pressure to rise which causes physical damage to your body that can not be undone. If what you are stressing over is not a life or death situation then don't make it one. So many times you may be stressing for days over something only to find out that in the end everything turned out alright and you were stressed unnecessarily. But regardless of the positive outcome the physical damage from the stress is already done. You can eat right and get plenty of exercise but you also have to maintain good mental health for your overall well being.

We are running out of options

As I watch yet another mom and pop store closing there doors I am saddened.  It also means less choices we have of where we can go. If what you need is only available at one place then they have less concern about customer satisfaction. In the old days they knew if they didn't treat you right you would go somewhere else. This kept people more honest and customer satisfaction was a must to remain in business. Now when there is no where else to go they know you will put up with anything. This only promotes and opens the door to poor customer service. Competition is necessary to keep prices down and polite attitudes in customer service. Support the small businesses in your area so they can be there in the future. We all want to be able to have a choice so we just have to make sure we have choices available to make.
