Do something

 If you choose not to do anything then you will be choosing to do nothing. But remember that choosing to do nothing is still a choice you make.

 If you want to make a positive difference you have to do something that would make a positive difference.

  If you want things to be different in your life than you will have to do things differently.

  You can't keep doing things the same way over and over again and expect a different result.

 You also can't get too comfortable in life because life is always changing. You will just have to ADJUST as you go to keep moving forward.

  The outcome is not determined by the circumstances that you face but by how you REACT to the circumstances that you must face.

 Only if you look for a way to have a positive outcome will you know what you have to do to have a positive outcome.

Will it make a difference?

   Even though you can not take care of everything they need, they will still appreciate your help.

  Every random act of kindness no matter how small it is, makes a positive difference to them.

  You may not have the answers they need but taking the time to listen to them, allows them to be able to figure out the answers on their own.

  You may not be able to do anything to help them but you certainly can make sure you don't do anything that would make things harder for them. 

  You can make a positive difference but only if you do something that will make a positive difference to someone.

  You may have a lot of love in your heart but can anyone see it so they can feel it?

As long as it helps

   What good is your wisdom to anyone if you don't share your wisdom with anyone?

  Have you ever tried to share your wisdom with someone who really would benefit from it yet they won't listen to what you have to say?

  I saw a sign that said....If your own family won't listen then spread your wisdom to another family.

  Just because everyone won't benefit from your experiences doesn't mean someone won't benefit from them.

  If you want to make a positive impact on someone you have to do something that will have a positive impact on them.

  Share your wisdom and they can either listen or not. You don't want to regret not trying to share it with them.

TRUST ME, karma is real

   It's hard to see their HUMAN side when they have to keep it hidden.

  It's hard to know who to trust when there are so many people who you can't TRUST everywhere.

  Luckily if you know someone you TRUST who knows someone they TRUST, then you will know someone who can be TRUSTED.

  It may be hard to find but once you do then you will be able to PASS IT ON to others. 

  Earning someone's TRUST is the only way for them to TRUST you enough before they will decide to share WHO THEY TRUST with you.

  It's like a special club for other HUMANS like yourself that are TRUSTWORTHY. 

 If they don't TRUST you then they will protect those special people they can TRUST from you.

  Society had seemed to be full of people who you just couldn't TRUST anything they said. 

  Turns out there are many people who you CAN TRUST but you will never know who they are until someone who TRUST YOU tells you who they know that are.

  They won't TRUST you unless you prove you can be TRUSTED. 

  If you want to be TRUSTED then if you give someone your word, make sure you keep your word.

  I shared my HONEST AC GUY with them years ago who their friends and family use. To repay me they shared their HONEST MECHANIC with me when I needed one.

  TRUST ME, you reap what you sow in life. KARMA IS REAL.

What to EXPECT when there is no way to know what to EXPECT

   What you thought you could EXPECT isn't what you can EXPECT at all.

  What used to be NORMAL isn't what is NORMAL anymore.

  What used to WORK doesn't WORK anymore.

  What you used to be able to DO is not possible to DO anymore.

  You can't plan for the UNEXPECTED because you have no idea what to EXPECT.

  It's hard to say what you NEED to do when the PANDEMIC changes what you will NEED.

  Life is full of CHALLENGES and you have to ADJUST to get through the CHALLENGES.

  LIFE'S JOURNEY is full of ups and downs as well as twists and turns without living during a pandemic. 

  Pandemic or not we only have one life to live and the only way to ENJOY life is to ENJOY it while you are LIVING IT. 

  Don't sit around and wait for things to go back to NORMAL to be HAPPY because nothing will be the OLD NORMAL ANYMORE.

  BE HAPPY wherever you are. 

  When LIFE gives you LEMONS learn how to make LEMONADE.

If it makes you happy then who cares what anyone else thinks!

   It's not being SELFISH to make sure you have self compassion. Which means doing things that make you feel HOPEFUL and INSPIRED.

  OF COURSE you can't do anything and everything that you want to do. There are many things that you should never do because it will have only negative affects. 

  But taking care of yourself is not being SELFISH, It is being SMART. It is a NECESSITY so you can ENJOY LIFE WHILE YOU ARE LIVING IT.

  It might be just who you are, always jumping in to help everyone with everything. But if you don't take care of yourself you won't be able to HELP anyone when they really need your help.

  REMEMBER if someone asks you if you can help, and you CAN'T, it is okay to say NO. 

  REMEMBER if it isn't HURTING ANYONE and it is something that makes you FEEL HAPPY, then do it. IT doesn't MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS. 

  REMEMBER at the end of the day as long as you are PROUD OF YOURSELF that is all that matters. 

   Do you remember the song DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY? 

  The next time someone doesn't like what you are doing that makes you happy just tell yourself DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY.

Don't lose CONTROL focusing on things you CAN NOT CONTROL

   Don't focus on things that are OUT OF YOUR CONTROL.

  ACCEPT that you are not in CONTROL of what other people do or say.

  Accept that you are not in CONTROL of every situation you will have to face in your life.

  Don't focus on everything that is out of your CONTROL.... FOCUS ON THINGS THAT YOU CAN CONTROL.

  You may have been treated unfairly or disrespected but you can still treat others with kindness and respect.

  You must FOCUS your energy on your deeply held values and being a positive influence on others.

  If you let the turmoil of worrying about things YOU HAVE NO CONTROL over consume you then you will lose CONTROL over all the positive things that you DO HAVE CONTROL OVER.

  LIFE'S JOURNEY is full of ups and downs as well as twists and turns. 



  DON'T waste a single moment of it FOCUSING on things that you have NO CONTROL OVER.

A thought that distracts

   When your thoughts DISTRACT you it can make staying on track harder.

  When your thoughts DISTRACT you it can keep you from doing what you need to do.

  When your thoughts DISTRACT you it can make reaching your goals impossible.

  So when you need a change then change your thoughts by DISTRACTING your way of thinking.

 When you need to stay focused then don't let thoughts DISTRACT you.

  When a thought pops up that evokes negative feelings JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so it can't DISTRACT you.

   Your thoughts are your reality. 

  Our minds have an endless stream of thoughts that try to grab our attention and it is up to us to choose wisely.

Does it affect the "big picture" in your future?

   Sometimes we can think something is important yet it won't have any affect us in the future.

  Don't let things weigh heavy on your mind that will weigh you down on your life's journey.

  If it doesn't matter then JUST FLUSH IT out of your MIND to lighten your load.

   Sometimes you think it was important to them yet they don't even remember it at all.

  What is important to you when you are young won't be important to you when you are old.

  What is important to you may not be important to them.

   At the end of the day it's important that you are proud of yourself.

Be thankful for it

   Being thankful for what you got takes you appreciating what you got. Not thinking about what you don't have.

  Being thankful for what you got takes you seeing the glass half full. Not seeing it as half empty and waste your time and energy complaining  about how much you didn't get.

  Being thankful for what you got is all in how you look at it.

  You could be surrounded by water yet still die of thirst if you don't take a drink.

 You may not have everything that you could ever want but as long as you have everything that you really need you should be thankful.

 Being thankful for what you got is the only way that you will be grateful for what you got. 

 Don't waste a perfectly good day because everything aint perfect.

You figured it out but you can' no longer....

   When I look back now, I can understand but I didn't understand in time. 

  The older I get and the more things I experience, the more I understand what exactly they went through that I didn't understand back then. 

  Unfortunately you may not understand in time to talk to them about it. 

  I experience things now that I remember older relatives going through when I was younger but they are no longer around to talk to them about it.

  I used to think old people were kinda grouchy and set in their ways. And now that I am one of the old people, I understand why  and I too am kinda grouchy and set in my ways.

  Change is exciting when you are younger but when you are older it is hard to change. 

  I can see the puzzled look on my grown children's faces when they don't understand me at all.

  After a while I give up trying to make them understand and I tell them nevermind, one day you will understand.

  That is exactly what my older relatives would tell me when I didn't understand them. 

  We all have been there and say if only I Knew then what I know now....

Ask yourself to help yourself

   From time to time you need to take the time to talk to yourself.

  I know it sounds crazy to talk to yourself but you know you best so you would be crazy if you didn't.

  When you need to decide what is best for you to do, be honest with yourself so you will know what is best for you.

  Who you surround yourself with has a big impact on your way of thinking. So ask yourself if it is best for you to be around them or not.

  When you find yourself in a negative situation ask yourself what you need to do to have the best positive outcome for yourself.

  As long as you are honest with yourself you honestly will make the right decision for yourself. 

  What works for someone else may not work for you. 

  What makes someone else happy doesn't mean it is what would make you happy.

  What is important to someone else may not be important to you. What is important to you may not be important to them.

    Your thoughts are the reality that you live so think HAPPY THOUGHTS to be happy.

   At the end of the day as long as you are proud of yourself that is all that matters.

Life survival skills

   A person is not born knowing anything. You learn as you go.

  You learn from your experiences. 

  You learn from the people around you. Even a brief encounter with someone can teach you something that was an important part of what made you who you are today.

  Remember your WORDS of encouragement can encourage them. 

  They may not remember your brief encounter but your encouraging WORDS you plant will not be forgotten. 

  Unfortunately your negative WORDS will not be forgotten either. So remember IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY THEN DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL.

  We need to go back to making mandatory in our schools classes that teach life survival skills to both boys and girls.

  Knowing a range of things like checking the oil in your car and changing a tire to how to prepare meals for yourself. As well as banking, budgeting and saving, just to mention a few.

  Life survival skills are needed to survive. 

  Cooking, gardening, budgeting, being creative and entertaining ourselves at home had become a LOST ART in the fast paced World we live in. 

  But because of the pandemic, now we have all learned many things that we can pass on to other generations.

  What good is your wisdom if you don't share it with others?

  You may have a lot of love in your heart but can anyone feel it?

  Pass it on.
