The venomous bite of a two faced snake

Two heads are better than one but two faces on the same head means you better watch your back. Far too many people literally have two faces and neither of them speak the truth. One face smiles as it lures you in to talk so what you say can and will be used against you by their other face later. They will find out what you need most so they can later make sure that it is the one thing for sure that you wont get. So look closer at the face that is smiling at you to see if it is actually a smirk. Keep in mind that once you have seen the other face they have that even if over time they grow hair to hide it that it will always be there. If they fool you once then shame on them. If they fool you twice then shame on you for not remembering that a two faced snake is dangerous.

Be thankful so you can grin and bear it

As I found myself complaining about all the rain today I quickly stopped myself and started saying thank goodness all I have to deal with is a little rain. Throughout your life you realize the situations you face may be trying at times but there are many others that are facing much worse situations. You may not have everything you want but if you have everything you need you are lucky. As hurricane Harvey rages on shore in Texas it is a reminder that mother nature has a lot of power. Although the meteorologist predicted accurately right where it would make landfall no one knew just how much devastation the storm would bring. Several years ago when hurricane Katrina rolled into Louisiana we weren't prepared for the widespread flooding. We learned a lot from that disaster and thank goodness the military was called in to help and arrived before the storm had even made landfall. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those living in It's path.

Shame on you for seeing it and doing nothing about it!

A recent video I saw on the news has me wandering how on earth this could happen in school. There were a room full of students watching as a group of boys were torchering a girl. How could they hear her screams yet do nothing to help her? What the heck is wrong with people? Why didn't anyone help her? When a video of the attack surfaced her parents took it to the pricipal yet nothing was being done about it. She then took it to the local news station. It's time we start focusing on what's going on in our schools these days. Kids are being physically and mentally tortured and no one stops the violence. Yet we wander why society is in the mess it is in. Those students involved need to be expelled and any teacher that heard her screams and did nothing to help her should not only be fired but be banned from ever teaching again. The violence would stop and our children would be safe if there was a punishment for those who do it and for those who ignore it. Without accountability you can't count on being safe.

It was gone in a flash

When I open my front door my dogs always Sprint outside as fast as they can. Our little dog runs straight to the bushes to chase the family of lizards that lives there. The bigger dogs run straight to the tree out front trying to catch a squirrel before they all make it safely up the tree out of their reach. Everyday four or five times a day it is the same thing. Luckily none of them had ever managed to catch anything. But today I couldn't believe my eyes. The two big dogs were standing under the tree as they watched the squirrels scramble to the top of the tree. As usual the squirrels then jump from one tree to the other tree to get away from them. Then with a loud thump I saw one of them miss the tree limb and fall flat to the driveway right between my dogs. In the blink of an eye my lab puts the squirrel into her mouth before the other dog had a chance to react. I tried to block my son from seeing it as he walked out the front door but he saw the squirrels tail was dangling out of his mouth before it disappeared. I was in shock and panicked waiting for my lab to literally choke to death. I called the vet who assured me that the squirrel would easily be digested and cause no harm to my dog. I wandered had they caught something before this and that is why they always sprinted out?

To disagree with someone's opinion is not an attack against anything

We all see things differently. Obviously that means we all have a different point of view. Our opinions can only be formed on what we personally see. Just because someone disagrees with your opinion doesn't mean they don't respect your opinion. It simply means that in their opinion they respectively disagree with your opinion. Don't turn it into a battle over who's opinion is correct. Just agree to disagree on some things. One thing we can all agree on is we are all entitled to have our own opinion. If we respect each other's right to have their own opinion then we can move past our differences so we can work together. If we don't start working together then in my opinion things are going to get worse and worse until we do. The World won't get better on its own. We all need to do our part by teaming up to do whatever we can to make the World a better place. If you want a life worth living it's going to take working together to have it.

Doctors agree that laughter is the best medicine

The sound of laughter is all it takes to make a smile jump on the faces of anyone who hears it. It is an automatic response to laughter. They say laughter is the best medicine and there are no negative side affects like there are with most medicines. Best of all it is medicine that is given away for free. You can feel a good belly laugh ease your tension from your head to your toes. When is the last time you had a good belly laugh?

Knowing what to do is only half of the battle

It's good when you know what to do but actually doing it is a whole other thing. Like you know you should eat right but will you? You know yet you have to make sure you actually eat healthy. It takes constant commitment to stay away from bad foods no matter how many times a craving for it pops in your mind. If you know you need to budget then no matter what you think about buying you have to stick to your budget. If you know their is a crater in the road ahead then go around it instead of falling in it. If you know that trouble is coming then you know what to do then you know you should just get out of it's way.

You can try not to but your still going to

We all say "I am not going to be like my parents when I grow up". Then you slowly but surely over the years begin to start becoming like them in a lot of ways. I have seen people that looked nothing like their parent when they were young yet when they got old they even looked like them. As a parent you pass on everything you do so do Your kids a favor later in their lives by choosing carefully what you pass on.

One is bad enough so SQUISH it like a bug

People like to place blame on everyone but themselves when clearly they have no one to blame but themselves. Even if the excuse they give didn't happen to them at all over time after they say it enough they begin to believe it. Your thoughts determine your reality. If all you think about and talk about is the negative things in your life then in reality you will never have a positive outlook. If you focus on the positive things then you will have a positive outlook that will guide you throughout your life. I can't imagine choosing to feel gloom and doom instead of when a negative thought pops up in your mind Just Flushing It quickly before it has a chance to cause an avalanche of negative thoughts to flood in if you allow it to grab your attention. It's like seeing one roach and knowing if you don't squish him immediately he will lay a hundred eggs and then you will have a roach infestation. Think of a negative thought that pops up as a roach that if you let it in it will mean you are inviting in an infestaion that is harder to get rid of so JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind while it is only one roach.

There is no truth when the channel you choose determines the facts you hear.

I don't care where you live nor do I care about the political party you belong to. I don't care whether you are young or old. I do not care whether you are rich or poor. We all need to know the facts to make an informed decision. There are so many important things going on but depending on what channel I watch on TV determines the facts I have to base my opinion on. That explains clearly why the WORLD is in the mess it is in.

Did you feel that Thank You?

When you do something kind for someone you feel good inside knowing it will help them. But when someone says thank you to you for doing it that makes you feel good deep inside you. My teenage son always says thank you and he always makes my grandkids say thank you and that feels double good deep inside. I have noticed my husband telling me thank you lately for things I have always done and it sure means a lot to hear it. If someone does something no matter what it is be sure and say thank you to make them smile.

Does it really matter?

If it doesn't matter in the long run then don't waste your energy even thinking about it. Just FLUSH It out of your mind so you can focus on what matters most. It is easy to lose focus if you try to focus on everything. When you become overwhelmed you need to simplify things. If it doesn't matter at all in the "big picture" in your life then you should JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind right away. If there is anything that you can't do anything about then accept it. Then start with the most important thing and get 'r done. If you want a more simple life then simplify it.
