If you don't believe it is possible then for you, it will not be possible

If you don't believe you can do it then you will not try to do it, therefore you won't be able to do it. You would be surprised yourself at what you can do if you just gave it a try. FLUSH AWAY your doubts then there is no doubt you can do it. Sometimes the only thing holding you back is you yourself. You can be your worst enemy or your biggest cheerleader. If you try it but can't do it, at least you can take pride in knowing you tried. There's no shame in trying but if you don't try that would be a shame. Knowing if you can do it or not is determined by trying to do it to see if you can. If you tried but just can't then find someone to help you get'r done. It may not be easy to do, but that doesn't mean you can't do it. Just means you have to put in the work to get'r done. Don't give up without trying, just keep telling yourself that you can do it. Anything is possible if you believe it is possible.

What are you looking for?

What you see depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for trouble, you will find it. If you are looking for the negatives in your situation, you will find it. If you are looking for something positive about the situation you are in, you will find it. You can't have a positive outcome if you don't have a positive outlook. Your thoughts make up your reality. You are what you think you are. Your point of view determines how you see things, as well as what you are looking for. How you look at it determines what you see. You could see things differently if you looked at it differently. If you have a positive outlook, you can have a positive outcome. It's all in how you look at it. For instance, you may have to fix a leaky roof but still be thankful you have a house because some people don't. You can be your biggest cheerleader or your worst enemy.

You can still enjoy it, you will just have to enjoy it a little differently

There will be times throughout your lifetime when things don't work out like you had planned them to. Although you will have to come up with a new plan, you may realize that things worked out for the best in the end. The direction that you are going now will get you right where you need to be. And had you not have had to change your plans, there is no telling how you would have ended up where you are. Sometimes it takes a tornado in your life to get you where you need to be. You face hard times throughout your life, that's just life. If you don't take each painful experience from your past and JUST FLUSH IT as it comes, you will carry them with you like sandbags on your life's journey. Life's journey is hard enough without carrying sandbags making it harder to enjoy life while you are living it. JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so you can ease your load.

Mourning the living

We have all experienced the mourning of a loved one when they pass away. You miss them so much. But have you ever had to mourn over someone when they are alive still? Well unfortunately there are sometimes when you realize that you have to let go of them, because it's what is best for you. You will miss them. But you will remember why you have to mourn them even though they are alive. You had to, so you could enjoy life while you are living it. There are a lot of decisions you will have to make throughout your lifetime, and some of them are painful decisions. Knowing why you had to do it will help you get through it. So if you know it is in your best interest to let them go, then you know it is the best thing to do. Swimming alone is better than swimming with sharks.

Please and thank you

When someone says please, you are happy to do it. When someone says thank you, you are glad you could do it. But when someone is demanding you do it, it is hard to want to do it. When someone doesn't even acknowledge that you did it, it makes you wander why you even bothered to do it for them. Being thankful and grateful for something that someone does for you makes them feel appreciated. If you want help doing it , then say please. If you are thankful for what they did, then say thank you. They say words can't hurt you, but they can. And just in case you didn't know it, a kind word means a lot.

You forgive them for your sake not theirs

Holding a grudge against them allows them to hurt you over and over again. Forgiving them you do for yourself not for them. You have to forgive them, so it doesn't eat away inside you. You can't have peace of mind if you keep it fresh on your mind. Forgiving them doesn't mean what they did was okay. It means you are not going to let them hurt you anymore. It means you love yourself more than you hate them for what they did. There are so many times when they don't even remember or care what they even did. You can not get over it if you keep reliving it over and over and over again. JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so it can't hurt you anymore. Once was bad enough. You forgive them so you can JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind, so it can't hurt you anymore. Peace of mind is just a FLUSH away, so JUST FLUSH IT!

Your life is literally in their hands

If you have to seek medical attention you know you are literally putting your life in their hands. And if you or someone you love has to face a medical emergency you can only hope the medical professionals you see will do everything to treat them. Unfortunately it is easy to be seen merely as patient number 99 and slip through the cracks. You have to be your own advocate and fight for the right treatment. Your test results may make it to your file but that doesn't mean that the doctor will ever see those results to know what you medically need to stay alive let alone healthy. You have to get the results and bring it to your doctor's attention. Your doctor can be a great doctor but they are too busy to keep up with every patient. I love my doctors but there is a particular nurse at the office that just at the sight of them raises my blood pressure to a dangerous level. They might have passed all the written test to get their degree but no one bothered to test them on compassion for other human beings before they gave them that degree. There honestly should be a necessity to have compassion or you can't be in the medical field because patients litteraly put their lives in their hands. How you are treated personally is just as important to your health as having a good doctor. Be kind to everyone you meet for you have no idea what they may be facing.

The more you try the easier it gets

You may realize that it is going to be harder than you thought. But the more you do it the easier it gets. Sometimes it seems like you take two steps forward and then you fall one step back. But you are still one step closer to getting it done. You may find along the way that there are more steps that are necessary to be able to do it. But you have to be thankful that you know what you need to do. It may be harder than you thought and take longer than you thought but you can do it. That is unless you give up and quit. Quitting is easy. But if you quit it will never get done. A life worth living takes hard work, but it is worth the work it will take to get'r done. As long as you keep working at it you will get it done. You reap what you sow. Don't give up when the going gets tough because you are tough enough to do whatever is necessary to get it done. You can if you think you can. Stay focused on what you want to do and before you know it you will be done.

Don't count on it

You will have questions throughout your life that there simply is no answer to, not even on Google. Everything happens for a reason even if you may not ever know why it happened. So don't waste your time and energy on looking for the answer. Sometimes you just have to accept that it is what it is. You have to make the most out of the situation you are in regardless of how you got in the situation you are in. You have to "bloom" wherever you are planted. It's your life and you have to enjoy life while you are living it. Being happy in the skin you are in is only possible if you are happy about what you do in the skin your in. You may not have had a choice about the situation you are in but you do have a choice whether you make the best of the situation you are in. It's all in how you look at it. Your glass may be only half full but it will still quench your thirst.

Think about the good things because your thoughts are your reality

Stress can do physical damage even if in the end you had nothing to stress about. Worrying about something that might happen puts unnecessary stress on your mind and body. When you start to stress over something that may or may not happen, quickly JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind before it can do any damage. You may not have had anything to worry about but you can worry yourself to death over nothing. Too much stress on your mind can do as much damage as too many fries. Even if it turns out that there is nothing to worry about the damage is already done. Your thoughts are the reality you live so think of positive thoughts so you can have a positive outcome. Don't worry unless you actually have something to worry about or you will have to worry about the damage your unnecessary worrying has caused. Like the song says Don't worry be happy.

You got to start somewhere

Making the plans for a project requires a lot of thinking. But it is a task that can be creative and fun. Going shopping for the supplies is like playing a hide and seek game. But then you know how much work it is going to take to do it and you dread getting started. As you were making your plans you knew that there would be many things that you would have to do. But now as you look at all there is to do it seems overwhelming. Making the plans and getting the supplies took work but they were the easy parts. Now you have to get up and no matter how hard it is you have to get started. Getting started is the hardest part of the job ahead. But once you get started you will be motivated and get'r done. If you don't start then you will never get it done. The more you think about how hard it is the harder it is to get started. If you got to do it then just do it. The sooner you get started the sooner it will get done and you can enjoy it. So stop dwelling on the work ahead, JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind and get started. Thinking about it so much can litteraly wear you out leaving you with no energy to get started.

Celebrate your way

Tomorrow is a day to celebrate our Independence. The freedom to do it your way. Not everybody likes fireworks but those that do will light up the sky and if you want to see them you are free to watch them, or not. Having the freedom to do it your way is a reason to celebrate. Having a right to choose how you celebrate every day is a choice we are all thankful for. We must remember that in order to have the freedom to do it your way, means you have to respect how everyone else chooses to enjoy it their way. The moment you start telling others what to do or how to do it, is the moment that we all lose our Independence. Unfortunately the weather may make the decision on what time you  can grill out or if you have to eat indoors.  Everyday we celebrate our Independence and are thankful for it. But on the fourth of July we gather together to remind ourselves just how lucky we are to have our Independence. Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz says, there is no place like home. Celebrate your way but celebrate responsibly, don't drink and drive.

Short version

Today I am passing a kidney stone and will be resting. Overworking myself the last week on vacation has took it's toll on me. As soon as it passes I will get back on track. They say stress doesn't cause kidney stones but I disagree. And a vacation they say is relaxing but I disagree. I will be able to JUST FLUSH IT out of my mind as soon as I can JUST FLUSH the kidney stone out of my body. Have a happy and safe fourth of July.
