No one can give you the "MOON"

    They may promise you the "MOON" but you know that no one can own the MOON.

    If it sounds TOO GOOD to be TRUE, it probably ISN'T TRUE 

   A "GOOD THING" isn't going to fall in your LAP, it will take WORK TO GET.

   You don't always get what you DESERVE but you should always be THANKFUL for what you do got.

    You won't APPRECIATE what you have unless you ACKNOWLEDGE what you have.

   Remember an HONEST NO hurts less than a YES that you know you WON'T DO.

   If it is something that you need done then don't blame it on someone else if it doesn't get done because it is up to you to do it.

   You can't find it unless you look for it. You seek and you shall find.

  Opportunities may knock at your door but you won't have any opportunity if you don't open the door.

If it is time for a change does it really matter what time it is?

    It's hard to want to make CHANGES but if things CHANGE you have to make the necessary CHANGES to adapt.

   You can not get too comfortable in Life because Life is always CHANGING.

   You can't refuse to CHANGE just because you don't like CHANGE, you just have to CHANGE.

   You may not like the changes but they did CHANGE so ADJUST.

   If it is time for a CHANGE does it really matter what time it is?

  You may not get to decide what CHANGES but you do get to decide to make the CHANGES to keep up.

   Just because you don't want to CHANGE doesn't mean nothing will CHANGE.

    It is what it is, so do what you got to do to make the necessary CHANGES so you keep moving forward.

    A CHANGE may be just what you need.

Giving to others is like giving to yourself

    The feeling you get when you give to OTHERS is a special gift that you give to YOURSELF. 

   It's hard to describe that feeling but all I can say is it's amazing to feel it.

   I will never forget, even though it was a decade ago, the time when I was ten cents short at a Dollar Tree store and the lady in line behind me gave me a dime.

  I literally could barely say Thank you because her kindness had me all choked up.

  I felt so moved by the fact that she wanted to help someone.

  I waited for her to come outside and I gave her the dime back from the change in my car. 

  My husband and I always look for people to give help to because it feels good to help OTHERS.

  That day by her giving me a dime let me FEEL what it was like for those who we had helped. 

  And that feeling I felt getting help made me want to give to OTHERS even more. 

  Every random act of kindness helps no matter if it is small or big makes a difference.

  When you give to OTHERS you are giving YOURSELF a good feeling inside.

  Let's all do one random act of kindness each week to better the lives of 52 people a year.

  World peace is possible by bringing PEACE OF MIND TO ONE PERSON AT A TIME!

What was one of your Thanksgiving memories?

   What was your favorite food out of your Thanksgiving Feast?

   Were you like me and ate WAY TOO MUCH regular food that you had no room for dessert?

   Since we gathered to eat at noon by the time dinner time came around I was starving and I ate another mini Thanksgiving Feast.

  Waking up this morning I wasn't hungry at all.

  But I couldn't resist eating a slice of cheesecake with my morning coffee. 

   Then I had to organize the MANY LEFTOVERS into a scheduled time to serve them so that none of the leftovers get left uneaten.

   Today I am THANKFUL that I have so many memories we shared after not being able to be together during the quarantine. 

  The China got tucked back in the cabinet to wait until it was NEEDED again when we all gather together to celebrate Christmas and then the New Year.

    Good thing I wasn't counting calories.

I finally got the last Thanksgiving decoration up, my Christmas tree.

   It's been a tradition of mine to always have my Christmas tree out and decorated so we can enjoy it while we enjoy our Thanksgiving dinner together.

   Now that my kids are all grown up and live on their own I don't buy a real tree, i put up an artificial tree.

   Although I miss the smell of a real Christmas tree, it sure is less of a mess putting up and taking down an artificial tree.

   I just started my Christmas shopping so there isn't any packages wrapped yet to put under the tree 

   The last two years of quarantine due to COVID-19 I have gotten in the habit of doing most of my shopping on Amazon.

  "Knock on wood" none of my packages have been stolen like I have seen happen to others on the news.

   My grown children don't need me to buy them gifts anymore. The older grandkids only want specific gifts that they ask their parents to buy for them. 

  So definitely not much shopping for me to do anymore. Which is a good thing but I treasure the years when I got the perfect gift for someone.

   Luckily tomorrow I will see the Joy on everyone's faces as we all still enjoy a good home cooked thanksgiving meal together.

   You might not need gifts anymore when you get older but we all still like to eat no matter how old we are.

  Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

Let the Thanksgiving preparations begin.

    It begins with the planning and writing a list of what you want to eat for your Thanksgiving Feast.

   Followed by a search and find at your local grocery store to find all the ingredients you will need.

   Luckily this year I found everything at one grocery store. 

   After seeing the increase in the prices of groceries I sure wish I would have bought some of the ingredients back when they were cheaper.

  Now the dusting begins. From the ceiling fans to the shelves all the way down to the floors.

   Don't forget to take your turkey and Ham out of the freezer so they are thawed out by Thursday.

   Tomorrow it's time to write down the times and temperatures for all the food that gets cooked in the oven and create a schedule so everything gets done on time.

  This is definitely one time of year that I wish I had TWO OVENS. 

  Although I had completed my shopping list, I will be going back out tomorrow to get the ingredients for a couple of dishes I decided to add back to the list, despite the high prices.

  Remember that on Thanksgiving and Christmas there is no counting calories.

  There is a reason for the seasons and the reason on Thanksgiving and Christmas is to ENJOY THE FOOD.

The Grocery store shelves were at least stocked this year

   The last two years the pandemic has made finding the ingredients for your Thanksgiving dinner exhausting.

   There were several things that I couldn't find the last two years that I had to substitute ingredients and honestly it didn't taste the same.

   This year the shelves were stocked and I found everything that I needed at one store.

   Unfortunately the prices of every single ingredient was extremely expensive.

  Things were so expensive that there were a couple of dishes I took off the Thanksgiving dinner list because everything was just ridiculously too expensive.

  I had seen on the news before I left for the grocery store a list of groceries and how much each category had gone up in price since last year.

   Eggs alone had gone up 43%. Every category had gone up a minimum of 17%.

  So I am sure I will not be the only one making the list of Thanksgiving dishes a little shorter this year. 

  Definitely less deserts than I normally would have.

  And definitely there will be less leftovers because the portions of each dish will be smaller.

  I am still thankful that the quarantine is over and we can get together safely again to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.

 And being able to spend time in person with those you love is something I am THANKFUL for.

SPREAD kindness so kindness will SPREAD

    It's true you reap what you sow.

    So what seeds are you planting?

   The WORLD won't get better on it's OWN we all must do our part.

   Every ACT OF KINDNESS makes a positive difference. 

   When you encounter someone spewing hate don't let them fill you with hate.

   You can't let what they did or say change who you are.

   Just remind yourself that they are hurting and they need kindness to heal.

   You can't ignore bad behavior but how you react to it determines how it affects yourself and others.

   Be kind to everyone because you have no idea what they may be facing.

   Spread HUMANITY to replace the INSANITY we see in society.

Don't blame the MESSENGER

    Although you have an opinion you have to decide if you should even give your opinion.

   If you don't give them your opinion and things turn out bad you will REGRET not giving them your opinion.

   But you have to carefully decide because sometimes the message your opinion sends may not be what they want to hear.

  At the end of the day you don't want to have any regrets for anything that you DID OR DID NOT SAY 

   I have to remind my friends sometimes that I don't want to regret NOT saying something that may help them. 

   Making sure they see all sides of a decision is the best way to help them make the best decision for themselves.

   Of course there are times when it is simply NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS and you know it is best to not say anything at all.

   Weigh the pros and the cons before you give your opinion because you want to make the best decision.

Thank You to our Veterans for making FREEDOM possible.

    We all know that FREEDOM isn't FREE 

   Our Veterans and their families make sacrifices so that we all have FREEDOM.

    TODAY is all about VETERANS. Thank You to each and every Veteran and their families. 

    There isn't anything else to say except THANK YOU, THANK YOU, AND THANK YOU.

Don't spend decades collecting DUST COLLECTORS.

    As you go on your LIFE'S JOURNEY you go through MANY DIFFERENT STAGES.

   What you like at one STAGE in your life doesn't mean that you will always like it.

   What you think is IMPORTANT at one STAGE may NOT always be IMPORTANT to you.

   What WORKED for you back then may NOT WORK for you now.

   What you thought would HAPPEN in your life may NOT HAPPEN at all.

   You can't get too COMFORTABLE in LIFE because LIFE is constantly CHANGING.

  What WORKS for someone else may NOT WORK for you. You do whatever WORKS for you.

  What you THOUGHT you always NEEDED you realize that you didn't really NEED IT at all, you just THOUGHT that you did.

    Oh yeah, don't spend every STAGE on your LIFE'S JOURNEY COLLECTING DUST COLLECTORS.

  BECAUSE when you get old you won't want to DUST all your COLLECTIONS.

Did you see that?

   What you see depends on what you are looking for.

   If you look for trouble you will find it.

   If you look for the negative in something you will find it.

   If you look for the positive in something you will find it.

   If you look for the things that you are thankful for them you will be thankful.

   If you want a positive outcome you will have to have a positive outlook.

   Like they say... Seek and you shall find.

   How you look at it will determine what you see.

How well do you behave when the going gets tough?

    It's easy when things are going your way for you to be BEHAVING your best.

    But how do you BEHAVE when life throws boulders at you on your LIFE'S JOURNEY?

   Your true character is how you BEHAVE when times are tough.

   Your true character is how you BEHAVE when no one else is looking.

  Be HONEST with yourself about your true BEHAVIOR on both the good days and the bad days.

  Don't do anything to get through a tough time that you will regret for the rest of your life.

  LIFE is a ROLLERCOASTER and there will be ups and downs, that's just LIFE.

   Life is full of twists and turns, that's just LIFE.

   Life isn't always fair, that's just LIFE.

   We only have the TIME we have to ENJOY LIFE so don't waste a moment of your TIME.

   DON'T EXPECT that you won't face challenges on your LIFE'S JOURNEY because there will be challenges that you will have to face, that's just LIFE.

   IF LIFE GIVES YOU NOTHING BUT LEMONS YOU JUST GOT TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE LEMONADE.

   Like the plaque on my wall says...

    I asked God for all things that I might enjoy LIFE, he gave me LIFE that I might enjoy all things.

A DREAM can't come true if you don't have a DREAM

   You can't reach your GOALS if you don't have any GOALS.

   Your DREAMS can't come true if you don't have any DREAMS.

   IF you don't TRY then you won't be SUCCESSFUL.  at it.

   If you DOUBT that you can do it then you won't do it because you won't even TRY to do it.

   You can either be your worst ENEMY or your biggest CHEERLEADER.

   Your THOUGHTS are the REALITY you live. 

   If you want a POSITIVE OUTCOME then think about how to have a POSITIVE OUTLOOK.

   If you want PEACE OF MIND then you have to take All the NEGATIVE THOUGHTS and JUST FLUSH THEM OUT OF YOUR MIND SO PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM TO GET IN.

   How you look at it determines what you see so look for the POSITIVE in everything to have a POSITIVE OUTCOME.

   As long as you know that your glass is HALF FULL you will be able to QUENCH YOUR THIRST. 

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

Happy Halloween 🎃

    It won't be long before all the trick or treating will begin.

   It was a journey yesterday running around to get my grandkids a costume when Amazon delayed the delivery Day for two of them had ordered.

  Most of the stores were not only out of the sizes and specific costume designs, they were also filling the aisles with Christmas decorations where the Halloween once was. 

  When Halloween time arrives they simultaneously start putting out the Christmas stuff.

   And before Halloween time is officially even here they push it out to put out only Christmas stuff.

  I know how excited my grandkids are to go trick or treating but being OLD I can't help but worry about how safe it is nowadays.

   The last few days I have seen many Pop up car trunk or treating.

  The creativity of how they decorate their cars is so much fun to see.

  The Joy of Halloween will definitely be seen on the faces on the kids that will arrive in a short time, which will be so good to see.

   Stay safe everyone and don't eat too much candy that you will regret it.

  Happy Halloween Everyone 🎃

If you stopped trying do you think they will try?

    I thought it was strange when someone I know said that they weren't going to call a friend of theirs for a while to see if they would call them.

   That just didn't make any sense to me at all at the time.

   About a month later I asked them if they had heard from them lately. 

   I was surprised that they said no.

   I asked them if they had tried to call them and they said no I am waiting to see if they think about me and call me to catch up.

  Again I asked them three months later and they had still not heard from them.

  This time I could hear the hurt that they felt thinking that apparently they didn't really care about them.

  Although they had not called them they lost out on the friendship that they had for decades that they had enjoyed.

  I understand that he proved that there are friends that don't and won't reach out to you.

  But the truth is that they truly enjoyed the relationship they had with them but lost it just to prove their point.

  Being right and proving it is not always the right thing to do.

   Enjoy them for the friend they had been for decades not stop enjoying your friendship with them because they are the same person that they had been for decades.

Eliminate the NOISE so you can HEAR yourself THINK

    When there are so many levels of distractions in your mind it's TOO NOISY to THINK 

   You can't make the right decision for yourself if you can't CLEARLY THINK. 

   ESPECIALLY now when the pandemic has made things difficult and we have lots of important decisions to make.

   Every time we turn around something is out of stock.

   Every day it seems like the prices have gone up on absolutely EVERYTHING.

   What used to work doesn't seem to work anymore.

    You have to quiet the NOISE of all the NEGATIVE stuff so you can figure out what DECISIONS you need to make for the best OUTCOME for you.

   If you can't do anything about it JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND and cut out some of the NOISE.

  If it MAY OR MAY NOT HAPPEN then JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND and cut out some of the NOISE.

   To ENJOY LIFE while you are living it you have to take all the NEGATIVE NOICE and JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND so PEACE OF MIND has ROOM to get in.

   If you want PEACE OF MIND you have to JUST FLUSH IT so PEACE OF MIND has ROOM to get in.

The sooner you get it done the better

    How many times have you put off doing something that you could have done in a short amount of time?

    If it is up to you to do it then what are you waiting for? 

   If you think about what you should do for just a moment each day yet decide to not do it you wasted a lot of your time.

   Don't put it off, just do it so you can quit wasting your time thinking about why it is okay to put it off until another day.

   The sooner that you get it done the sooner you can forget about it because it is done already.

   You can miss important deadlines that something has to be done by not because you didn't have time, but because you didn't take the time to do it.

   Every time you think about it and decide to not do it you wasted your time making up reasons why you shouldn't do it.

  JUST DO IT.

  JUST GET 'R DONE.

  Don't put off what you can do today, just do it so tomorrow you will be free to do whatever you want to do.

It won't go away if you IGNORE it

   If you pretend to IGNORE IT that doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

  If you choose to IGNORE IT that doesn't mean it isn't happening.

  If you turn away when you see it that doesn't change what you saw.

   If you IGNORE bad behavior it will make it ACCEPTABLE.

  And if you ACCEPT IT then you can EXPECT IT to eventually happen to you or someone you love.

  Remember CHOOSING to do NOTHING is still a CHOICE you make.

  It is what it is no matter if you IGNORE IT or PRETEND IT doesn't exist.

  If you wouldn't want it to happen to you or someone you love them don't let it happen to anyone.

When you want them to HEAR IT say the same thing in MANY different ways because you aren't sure which way they will be able to HEAR IT.

    It's not always what you say but how you say it to them that determines what they HEAR.

   If you want them to HEAR IT you can't make them CLOSE THEIR EARS.

   If you want them to HEAR IT a certain way then make certain that you SAY IT THAT WAY.

   Once you say it OUT LOUD you can't make them UN-HEAR IT.

  Remember what every parent says...if you don't have anything nice to say then DON'T SAY ANYTHING.

   If you don't mean it then why would you say it?

  Stop and THINK about it so you can say it so they will HEAR IT how you meant to SAY IT.

   If you DO SAY SOMETHING and THEN YOU REGRET IT then make sure they HEAR YOU APOLOGIZE.

   If you STOP and THINK before you SAY IT OUT LOUD you WOULD REALIZE THAT YOU are THANKFUL you didn't SAY IT OUT LOUD.

Sometimes it takes a good imagination to come up with an answer

    When you don't have all the supplies you need for a project you have to get creative to figure it out.

   When things aren't going as you had hoped you have to get creative to make things turn out okay.

   When you can't afford to buy the expensive version you have to get creative and come up with a cheaper version.

   When you find yourself with lots of odds and ends you can get creative and make good use of them.

   When you are bored you have to get creative to find a way to entertain yourself.

   Every new invention took creativity by the inventor to make it what they envisioned it could be.

   It takes creativity to imagine just how much fun you can have.

   It takes creativity to imagine just how far you can go.

   It takes creativity to imagine the good in every situation.

   If you can imagine it then it's possible to create the outcome you want.

  How you look at it will determine what you see which will determine what it is.

  Just imagine how far you can go and you will get there.

  Your thoughts are the reality that you live so think positive thoughts and get creative.

As long as you are okay with what you do then you can accept how things turn out

    At the end of the day all that matters is that you are okay with what you have done and said.

   You can't be comfortable in the skin you are in unless you are comfortable with what you do in the skin you are in.

   As long as you do what you think is the right thing for you to do then no matter what the outcome is you won't feel bad about what you did.

   That is why no one's opinion counts but yours.

   Because in the end you are the one who will have to deal with the consequences for anything and everything that you did or didn't do.

  We all have an opinion but at the end of the day your opinion should be the only one that determines what you do or choose not to do.

   If you always do what you think is best for you to do then you will always know that you made the best decision at the time.

  You will have no regrets because you did what you thought was best, it's that SIMPLE.

  It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks you do what you think is best for you to do, period.

It may not be what you want but it isn't your choice to make

    You may not have chosen to do it but it doesn't matter because it wasn't your choice to make.

    It may be the opposite of what you would do but it is not your decision to decide.

   You may not like it but they do.

   You may not agree but you don't have to agree with it.

   You may think they are making a mistake but so what, it's up to them to do whatever they want to do.

   Basically it is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. 

   You will have to deal with the consequences that their decision brings you, that's just LIFE. 

   It's their and THEIR decision alone to choose, period.

   It may be hard to be happy with their choices but it is their choice to make.

   You do what you want to do and they will do what they want to do. 

  That is called the FREEDOM to do what you want to do.

What changes that you made during quarantine are you sticking to?

   Quarantine is over and we can all go anywhere we want finally.

   We are getting to catch up and mingle with people who we couldn't physically gather with.

   I run into many people as I walk around stores, now that we all are finally able to freely go.

   I go just because I can.

  Many people have stopped doing some of the things they used to do even though now they could if they wanted to.

  Some things you realized during quarantine that you did out of habit and now your happily out of the habit of doing them.

   Many of them had to learn how to cook homemade meals because the restaurants were closed and realized that they like homemade meals.

  So they still cook even though the quarantine is over.

   What change did you make during quarantine that you now are in the habit of doiing?

Laughter is the best medicine

    A good belly laugh is good for your mind, body and soul.

   You can feel the release of tension from your head to your toes.

   When is the last time you had a good belly laugh?

   Sometimes I have a good belly laugh over something silly that I do that is also so dumb that I wouldn't share it with anyone.

   As I watched America's funniest videos I felt bad that I was laughing so hard at the videos of people falling but I couldn't help but laugh.

   When you get a chance to see a comedian performance, take it. 

   Anytime you laugh you feel better. When you feel better you are healthier.

   Laughter causes your body to produce certain hormones that make you mentally and physically healthier.

  Laughter also makes you a more pleasant person for others to be around too.

Time doesn't wait for anyone

    When you are a young child you look forward to the things you will be able to finally do one day when you are a teenager.

   When you finally become a teenager you realize that there are many things that you can't do until you are of an adult age.

    When you become a full fledge adult you realize that there are lessons you will need to learn to do some of the things that you want to do. 

   At THIS point you need to realize that TIMING is everything.

   But did you know that TIME FLIES BY?

   TIME also doesn't wait for anyone.

  Before you know it, in the blink of an eye your TIME and OPPORTUNITY could have passed to do the things you were looking forward to doing.

   As you make your BUCKET LIST put them into TIME SLOTS not just throw them in a BUCKET.

   Before you know it you may be too Old and your BUCKET LIST is just wasted opportunities.

   BEWARE TIME DOESN'T WAIT FOR NO ONE.

  ENJOY life while you are living it.

You can be lost until you see the right direction

    You never know how you might discover what makes you feel whole.

   You may never know that you need it until you try it to realize that it is exactly what you need.

   You could feel as if something is missing without knowing that anything is missing at all.

   I have seen people bust their butt going to college for years, then by coincidence realize that it isn't what they want to do in life at all.

   I have seen people feel like they are Lost then out of the blue they realize exactly where they were meant to be.

   Keep your mind and your options open to be ready and able to enjoy the treasures meant for you.

   Go with the flow in life and it will take you where you are meant to be.

We all have a personal gift, have you found yours?

    We all have a gift but not everyone's gift can be seen as easily as they would like.

    Some people get dealt a gift that leads them to an obvious path in their life.

   Unfortunately if you expect your gift to be gigantic and easily seen, you may not see your gift at all.

    You may be just the most kind and compassionate person that was meant to help others stand on their own.

   You may be a great listener that gives your full attention to anyone that needs to be heard.

   You may be the one who encourages others with your encouraging words.

    You may not see your personal gift if you only look for your dream gift that may not exist.

   You are who you are and you are a gift to the world and spreading kindness is a gift that keeps on giving.

It is always time to be prepared

     Whether it is a severe storm or a hurricane you have to be prepared to be safe.

     But did you know that in your personal life you have to be prepared for the turmoils and chaos that could possibly affect you?

    There is usually plenty of time because of the meteorologist to know that you need to prepare for bad weather heading your way.

   Unfortunately there may be no warning or any signs that your personal life is going to be blown apart.

   You must always be prepared to take care of at least your bare necessities on your own because you may find yourself alone to deal with whatever may come your way.

  When a hurricane hits there is no positive reason for it.

   But sometimes when there is a tornado in your personal life it could be because it was the only way to get you where you need to be.

   Life is a ROLLERCOASTER full of ups and downs as well as twists and turns.

Unity takes actions to unite with others

    If you want UNITY it takes COMPROMISE so everyone gets something they need.

   If you want UNITY you have to be willing to COMPROMISE and accept you won't have everything your way.

   If you want UNITY then find out what is most important to each of you and meet in the middle.

   You can't be a selfish person and have UNITY with others because you are not the only person involved.

    You can demand and bully people to get what you need but eventually they won't be around you for you to bully anymore.

   You won't know a good thing until it is gone and if you don't COMPROMISE it will eventually be gone.

    Just like you won't feel safe in your own community unless everyone in your community is safe.

   Together we can if UNITED we stand in UNITY.

   You don't have to have everything your way you just have to have the things you need and they have to have everything they need. 

  If you want UNITY then figure out what each of you need and COMPROMISE by meeting in the middle.

   Together we can do anything if UNITED we stand in UNITY.

As you gather the FACTS you realize that you were lying to yourself

    When you realize that you were not doing it as well as you thought you were you realize that you need to do it differently to benefit from it.

   You have to be HONEST with yourself and let the FACTS tell the TRUTH to be the BEST you that you can be.

   The older I get the more HONEST I am with myself to make the best decisions for myself.

   Like LEARNING how important WALKING is to your overall WELL BEING.

  I kept telling myself that just WALKING around the house and going to do my weekly errands was a good HEALTHY AMOUNT of WALKING.

  Then I looked up on the internet what was a good HEALTHY AMOUNT.

   To my surprise the average article estimated that 10,000 STEPS a day was a good HEALTHY AMOUNT.

   Well my UNCLE decided to buy several of us a PEDOMETER so we could gather the TRUE FACTS about just how many STEPS we really WALKED each day.

   It wasn't as if I wanted or thought I needed a PEDOMETER but I said okay THANKS, I will let you know when it arrives.

  As I waited for it to come, my UNCLE sent me photos of the amount of STEPS on his PEDOMETER after each of his ROUTINE CHORES. 

   He measured many of his DAILY ROUTINE CHORES, like WALKING to his mailbox and back .

  He measured his STEPS going down to his basement to do ONE load of laundry.

  Turns out each of these DAILY ROUTINE CHORES were less than a couple HUNDRED STEPS.

  When you realize that you only do laundry two times a week and you only check the mail a maximum of six days a week, that is a TRUE FACT that you got to take LONGER WALKS ON PURPOSE to be HEALTHY.

   SO I put on my PEDOMETER and measured each of my ROUTINE CHORES to get the FACTS and be HONEST with myself.

  And OMG, I have been telling myself that I WALKED THOUSANDS of STEPS each day, which turned out to be a BIG FAT LIE.

  Even when I add the STEPS I took at the grocery store once a week, I was no where near the DAILY HEALTHY 10,000 STEPS recommended.

   SO I know I have to be HONEST WITH MYSELF.

   First thing that I am changing is I need to QUIT looking for the closest parking spot when I go to ANY STORE because I need to WALK as many STEPS as I can, every chance I can.

   I don't know that I will be able to WALK 10,000 STEPS EVERY DAY but every STEP I add on a CONSISTENT BASIS, is a STEP in the right direction to being HEALTHIER.

  If you aren't HONEST with yourself then you are LYING TO YOURSELF, PERIOD.

It's the pollen inside the flowers that attracts them

   Have you ever heard someone say they don't know why they always attract the wrong kind of people?

   They don't realize that what is inside them attracts the same kind of people.

   If you want to attract kind people then be kind to others.

   If you want to attract positive people then be a positive person.

   If you want to attract motivated people then be a motivational person. 

   If you want people to be honest with you then be honest with others.

  It's the pollen inside the flowers that attracts the insects and hummingbirds to them.

   They don't come because they are merely colorful, it's the pollen inside them.

   What is inside you will attract the same kind of people. 

   What is inside you is what counts in determining the reality you will live in.

   You may have two faces but eventually the TRUE you will be seen.

  Be the kind of person that you want to be attracted to you.

  If you don't like the people who are attracted to you then look inside yourself to change so you can attract the kind of people you want to be with.

  Be the friend that is the friend you are hoping to have.

  You reap what you sow.

Your future is determined by your thoughts of what your future will be.

    If you see yourself succeeding is your only chance of being successful.

   If you know that you will reach your goals then you will do whatever you need to do to reach your goals.

  Your thoughts are the reality you will live in.

  When you see that you are capable of the hard work it will take you to achieve your dreams, it will keep you motivated and focused through the tough times to achieve your dreams.

   Don't set yourself up for failure by assuming you don't have to work hard to get what you want because you will have to work hard, that's just LIFE.

   Surround yourself with people who will encourage you to be the best you can be by doing the best that you can.

   Your thoughts are what determines whether you will be all you want to be and do anything you want to do.

    How you see things determines how things will be for you in the future.

   Think positive and your future will be POSITIVELY awesome.

Trust yourself

    You may have doubts but you have to trust yourself to make the best decision for you.

   There will be times when your decision is a mistake but mistakes are part of the process in your life.

   What you learn from your mistakes is necessary to lead you to the outcome that is best for you.

   Through trials and errors you figure out what doesn't work which leads you to discover what works.

   Every new invention took effort to figure out how to make it successful.

   Trust yourself and accept that you don't know what you don't know and you won't know until you work out all the kinks.

  Remember it's not as easy as A.B.C.. but you got a whole alphabet to figure it out.

Once you FLUSH IT you can't believe why you didn't JUST FLUSH IT sooner

   Sometimes we can let someone or something frustrate us for years or even decades.

  Why?

  When we finally have had enough and JUST FLUSH IT OR THEM out of our life, we instantly feel relieved.

  We need to not let it take years of weighing us down before we JUST FLUSH IT out of our lives.

  It doesn't matter if it is a person, a job or a friend that is causing you turmoil and frustration we only have the TIME we have so don't let them WASTE it.

  The sad part is when you FLUSH them they are not affected at all.

  They just go on to take advantage of someone else.

  The job will just hire someone else.

  And worst of all they never noticed how they treated you. It's just routine for them.

  Bullies don't remember the words they said to you that you carried around weighing heavy on your mind.

  Take the painful experiences and leave them in the past and quickly JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND SO PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM TO GET IN.

The cards you are dealt in Life is the cards you play with

   Some people get dealt a winning hand yet still struggle to be happy.

   Some people get dealt a difficult hand but they know how to turn it into a winning hand.

   Just because you have to go through difficult challenges only means you have to work harder than others.

  But that is a good thing because you will be stronger due to the challenges that you had to face.

  When life gives you nothing but lemons you just have to learn how to make lemonade.

  The people we admire most are the people who have had to face MANY challenges in life and did it with a smile on their face.

  The situations you face don't determine whether you have a positive outcome, it is how you react to the situation that determines the outcome.

  Being Rich doesn't mean you are going to be happy NOR does being poor mean you can't be happy.

  Your thoughts determine the reality that you live in.

   So how you look at things determines your thoughts which determines how you react which determines the reality you live in.

  It all depends on how you look at things.

We can disagree about WHO, WHAT, WHEN AND HOW it happened but....

    If there is a hole in the concrete it doesn't matter HOW it happened, WE JUST NEED TO FIX IT.

    If something that is a necessity gets broken it doesn't matter HOW it happened, WE JUST NEED TO FIX IT.

   If we see that someone is hurt it doesn't matter if we disagree about HOW they got hurt, WE JUST NEED TO HELP THEM HEAL.

  If we realize that what we did hurts anyone we don't have to beat ourselves up, WE JUST NEED TO MAKE SURE WE NEVER DO IT AGAIN.

  If you make a mistake JUST ADMIT it so you can LEARN not to do it again. 

  No matter WHO, OR WHAT happened to cause the problem, WE JUST NEED TO WORK TOGETHER TO FIX IT. 

  If all we do is go back and forth blaming each other, NOTHING WILL GET BETTER.

  WE CAN AGREE TO DISAGREE on things Yet still be UNITED TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL OF US.

  As we can all see the WORLD WON'T GET BETTER ON IT'S OWN WE ALL MUST DO OUR PART.

  Which means accepting that we are all unique but we are ALL KIND LOVING HUMAN BEINGS.

  Be KIND to OTHERS, it's that SIMPLE.

Your mood and Way of thinking is influenced by.....

    If you watch a SAD movie it makes you feel SAD.

    If you watch a SCARY movie you feel the FEAR while you are watching it.

   If you do something that you ENJOY you will feel JOYFUL.

    If you surround yourself with POSITIVE THINKING PEOPLE you will HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE.

   If you surround yourself with NEGATIVE THINKING PEOPLE you will have a NEGATIVE ATTITUDE.

   If you walk in a room where the tension is NEGATIVE you will feel NEGATIVE.

   If you walk in a room where the feeling of HOLLY JOLLY fills the air you will feel JOLLY.

   Have you ever excitedly walked up to tell someone your GOOD NEWS yet their negative attitude just ZAPS the happy right out of you.

   Your attitude towards Life is affected by the Attitude of those you surround yourself with.

  No matter WHO OR WHAT is sucking the JOY out of you, Get AWAY so you can ENJOY LIFE WHILE YOU ARE LIVING IT.

Looks can be deceiving

    I am sure you have heard the phrase .... You can't judge a book by it's cover.

   It's also true about how organizations and families may look like they run smoothly but that is merely a cover that they create to fool you.

  Unfortunately with so many Mom and Pop stores closing the TRUE way customers are treated is becoming more apparent.

  And I recently saw what I thought was a close loving family show their TRUE selfishness when a family member really needed them.

   Although it isn't any of my business and it doesn't affect me at all, it still was sad to see.

  But it made me appreciate my family and friends a whole lot more because although they are not PERFECT they are loving and caring, just like I knew they were.

   Although we each may be a little dysfunctional at  times but you can count on them when you need them.

  So don't think the grass is greener on the other side makes it better it simply means they put chemicals on it to make it look greener.

  Your family and friends may not look perfect but they are awesome to have in your corner.

  Don't judge a book by it's cover because what is inside is the only thing that matters.

It's FRUSTRATING but nothing can be done about it, it just is what it is.

    The way things happen today compared to how they had happened for decades before are TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

  Unfortunately no matter how FRUSTRATING it is there isn't anything that can be done to make them work like they used to.

  Those that have grown up with all the new technologies and the new way of how things get done they see it as normal.

  When I try to explain my FRUSTRATIONS to them they simply tell me to accept how things are done nowadays.

  I wish they could at least understand that the old ways worked more fairly and easier for everyone.

  But nope they just roll their eyes and close their ears to even considering that the old ways were easier and more sufficient.

  Obviously if they won't even listen then there is ZERO chance they would help to explain it to others to ever get anything back to what works better for everyone.

   So like it or not even things that are best for everyone will never be available to help anyone.

  Technology has it's good points and it's bad points but TECHNOLOGY rules over LOGIC in every aspect of LIFE AS WE KNOW IT.

  DARN IT sure wish we could talk about it and meet in THE MIDDLE.

You need a list of TOOLS to pull out when need them

   Different situations call for different TOOLS that you need to have at your disposal.

   There isn't one TOOL that can take care of everything.

  A hammer does what you need a hammer for.

  But if you need a saw a hammer won't help you at all.

   When you need a TOOL to help you with ANXIETY you need a variety of TOOLS because one TOOL works at one circumstance yet other circumstances need a different TOOL.

  The More TOOLS you have in your TOOLBOX the more you will have to help calm down your ANXIETY.

  When you need a TOOL check what you have in your TOOL BOX.

  FILL your TOOL BOX with anything and everything that will be a TOOL for you when you need it.

You have to be ready to be flexible

   You may know how you want things to go but unfortunately things don't always go as you had planned them to.

   You may have an opinion on something yet when you get all the facts you realize it isn't what you thought at all.

   You may have hoped that things would go smoothly but the truth is things never go as smoothly as you want them to.

  You may think that you will one day get what you have earned but the truth is reality is reality no matter what you thought that you would have earned.

   You have to be flexible throughout your life's Journey because it's a journey full of adventures.

  It is what it is, not what you thought it would be.

  Your LIFE'S JOURNEY is a ROLLERCOASTER full of ups and downs as well as twists and Turns.

  ENJOY life while you are living it not waste a moment of it because it wasn't what you thought it would be.

  We only have the TIME WE Have So don't waste the TIME you have, be flexible to ENJOY LIFE.

Friday, August 26, 2022

It doesn't matter what anyone else tells you

    Others can tell you what to do but that won't make you do it nor does it mean it is what you should do.

   They may have an opinion and even experience but that is still just their opinion.

    Just because something works for someone else doesn't mean it will work for you.

   If you doubt that it is possible than it's not possible because you will never try to do it.

    You know you best so only you know what will work for you.

  You can be your biggest cheerleader or your worst enemy.

  Be the best you can be and no matter how things turn out you will be proud of yourself.

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

Don't cut your nose off being spiteful

   Things happen in life that are unpleasant and unexpected, that's just LIFE.

   Don't let an angry moment destroy you for a lifetime.

   Don't react in such an angry way that you can't see that ANGER can destroy you. 

  Don't let an angry person or an angry situation have permanent negative consequences.

   The ROLLERCOASTER of LIFE is full of ups and downs as well as twists and Turns,  that's just LIFE.

  Don't do anything on a downward move that prevents you from enjoying the upwards moves.

  It's not what circumstances that you face but how you react to them that determines whether you have a positive outcome.

Kindness makes the world a better place

   People are quick to let their anger fly out in an instant.

  But they are very slow if they even do react to a positive vibe.

   Don't react to a negative situation so quickly because your first reaction to a negative situation is the most negative.

  If we reacted quickly to a positive situation we spread positivity.

  It is normal to get angry over a negative situation, we are human.

  But we need to stop before we spew it onto OTHERS. 

 Just because it naturally pops into your mind doesn't mean it should pop out of your mouth just as fast.

  Spread kindness to make the world a better place.

  It is human to get angry but connect to your human slide so you can be KIND.

Life expectancy V.S. LIFE

   We all have heard that life expectancy is In your late seventies.

  Unfortunately not everyone lives until they are in there late seventies, that's just LIFE.

   When my friends relative died at Seventy five she seemed upset that I said how lucky her and her family was to have so much time with them here on earth.

  Later my husband said that I shouldn't have said that.

  But you see my brother was 19 when he died.

  My mother was 25 years old when she died.

  My sister was 43 when she died.

 My Dad died when he was 58 years old.

  So Life Expectancy is NOT GUARANTEED.

  IF you are lucky to have a family member or many family members to live until Life Expectancy, you are very LUCKY.

  ENJOY every moment you have with those that you love because TOMORROW is not guaranteed for anyone.

Look for the positive in every situation

   What you look for is what you will find.

  And sometimes you go through tough times and finding the positive could be like finding a needle in a haystack but if you look for it you will find it.

  It's true seek and you shall find.

  A positive outlook will have a positive impact on your life.

  A positive outlook is necessary to have a positive outcome.

  It doesn't mean that you won't have to face tough situations it means despite the tough situations you can have a positive outcome.

Monday, August 15, 2022

What was the last thing you did for yourself?

   It's easier to see what you can do for someone else than it is to see what you can do for yourself.

  It's easier to make sacrifices to help others than it is to help yourself.

  It's easier to put off what you need done to do what others need done.

  But just like they say on a airplane you have to put oxygen on yourself first so you can be conscious to help others, it's true in everyday life.

  In order to help others you have to take care of yourself first so that you can take care of others.

  Today do something special for others by taking care of yourself.

The Memories came as I was walking

   Do to the pandemic I had not been to a yard sale in nearly two years.

  It is hard to believe that it has been over two years since we all went into quarantine.

  Things are slowly opening up and we are able to get back out and mingle with other humans.

  I got to go to two yard sales TODAY and saw signs for several more this Saturday.

  Now before the pandemic this wouldn't have been a big deal but after two years of avoiding human contact, it was amazing to see Yard sales in my neighborhood.

  As I got out of my car just walking up to the yard sale brought up MANY happy memories of times gone by.

  And just like the good old days as I looked at the items for sale it would trigger memories of people I knew that used to own one of those.

  You don't have to buy the item to enjoy the treasured memories that the item brought up, it's free to enjoy.

  I took my time looking at what was for sale perhaps longer than I should have but I did because it had been years since I had a Yard sale to enjoy.

  I didn't buy anything but I sure had a good time just because someone finally was having a Yard sale.

  Just a Mile down the road I saw another yard sale sign, of course I was going to stop by that one too.

  Suddenly it felt like we were finally getting back a little bit like normalcy. 

  I saw a few more signs for Yard sales on Saturday as I drove around doing my errands.

  It's been a tough time while we all have been living through a pandemic. 

  Things won't ever be quote normal again but our new normal is full of good times to be had.

  I can't wait to go to the flea market next and enjoy the treasured memories that will Pop up for me to enjoy as I walk down to see all the items for sale. 

  Of course there is also the dream of finding that million dollar painting as I am looking through the items for sale.

  We survived the quarantine, but now it's time to enjoy human contact again.

TODAY is twenty four hours to ENJOY

   Each day you have twenty four hours to ENJOY. 

  ALL we have is the TIME we have so don't WASTE your TIME TODAY.

  YESTERDAY is already gone so don't spend a moment of TODAY thinking about what happened YESTERDAY.

  Tomorrow is not guaranteed so don't waste your TIME TODAY worrying about tomorrow, JUST ENJOY TODAY.

  Don't waste a PERFECTLY GOOD DAY waiting until the PERFECT TIME or the PERFECT SITUATION because nothing is PERFECT.

  Remember that YESTERDAY is already gone and TOMORROW may never come but TODAY is yours to ENJOY. 

  You can only ENJOY the moment you are in. 

  ENJOY LIFE WHILE YOU ARE LIVING IT 😊

   

Monday, August 8, 2022

Accept that everyone makes HONEST MISTAKES.

   Just because you know that you shouldn't doesn't mean that there wont still be times when you do it HONESTLY thinking it will be okay. 

  Accepting that you are HUMAN and there will be times when you make an HONEST MISTAKE is necessary for you to have SELF LOVE.

  Don't JUDGE yourself or anyone so harshly for being HUMAN. 

  ACCEPT that everyone including you can make an HONEST MISTAKE while you HONESTLY thought it was the RIGHT THING to do.

  The sooner you ACCEPT it the sooner you can JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND.

  ACCEPT IT and learn from it what you need to then JUST FLUSH IT.

  PEACE OF MIND is just a FLUSH away.

  But you have to JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM to get in.

Did you WORRYING about it have any benefits?

   WORRYING yourself sick about things that MAY OR MAY NOT happen does DAMAGE to you whether it HAPPENS OR NOT.

  Don't WORRY about things that are OUT OF YOUR CONTROL because they are OUT OF YOUR CONTROL.

  WORRYING about TOMORROW waste your TODAYS!

  WE ONLY have the TIME WE Have, So DON'T WASTE it WORRYING.

  Like the plaque on my wall says.....

  I asked God for all things that I might ENJOY LIFE, he gave me LIFE that I might ENJOY all things.

  The DAMAGE from WORRYING is done even if you figure out that you had NOTHING to WORRY about.

  WORRYING is DANGEROUS to your HEALTH.

  To distract yourself from WORRISOME THOUGHTS, just sing the song DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY.

  If you want PEACE OF MIND when a Worrisome THOUGHT pops up. JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND SO PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM TO GET IN!!

What are we passing on to OTHERS?

   If you want to see more KINDNESS in the World then you have to be KIND to OTHERS.

   If you want to have the FREEDOM to be who you want to be and do what you want to do you then you have to allow OTHERS to have the FREEDOM to be who they want to be and do what they want to do.

  If you want to be RESPECTED you have to RESPECT OTHERS.

  If you want to feel SAFE in your neighborhood you have to make sure EVERYONE in your neighborhood is SAFE.

  If you wouldn't want it to happen to you or someone you love them DON'T let it happen to ANYONE.

  If you want to make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE in the LIVES of OTHERS you have to do something that will make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE.

  If you want to give someone the ENCOURAGEMENT they need it is ONLY possible if you say something ENCOURAGING to them.

  It's TRUE you REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

  If you want to HELP someone you got to do something or say something that will HELP them.

  We can all see that the WORLD won't get better on it's OWN we all must do OUR PART. 

  Be KIND to OTHERS so KINDNESS will SPREAD because it's true WE ALL REAP WHAT WE SOW.

  WORLD PEACE is possible by bringing PEACE OF MIND to One Person at a time.

  You may have a lot of LOVE in your heart but can anyone FEEL it?

You need to THINK about it but don't OVERTHINK about it

   Of course you need to STOP and THINK before you REACT to it. 

   Because once you REACT you can't TAKE IT BACK, what is done is done.

  But if you OVERTHINK about it you will lose FOCUS and not know how you should REACT. 

  It is okay to gather the FACTS and even to seek OPINIONS but too much INFORMATION and too many OPINIONS, can fill your MIND and you won't be able to THINK CLEARLY. 

  If you THINK that you have learned what you need to KNOW what you need to do, STOP gathering information and JUST DO IT. 

  Not EVERY DECISION you make will be the RIGHT DECISION but EVERY DECISION you make will be the RIGHT DECISION for you to have made.

  You LEARN as you go and although it may be PAINFUL what you will LEARN from it is JUST GROWING PAINS.

  As long as you STOP and THINK before you REACT at the end of the day no matter how things turn out you can be PROUD of the DECISIONS you made.

Before you know it they will be all grown up.

   Before you have kids you can easily say I won't let my kids do that. And you honestly believe it.

   When you do have kids you understand what being a parent is like. You realize that it is harder than you thought.

  Before you judge another parent remember you don't know what you would do if you were in their shoes.

   You learn that they won't behave all the time so you know you have to pick and choose the boundaries you set accordingly.

   When you are a Grandparent you already know that they are only young for a short time and you enjoy every moment while they are young.

  And as a Grandparent it is their parents job to be the disciplinarian and you get to be the chilled fun one.

  Grandchildren are the reward for being a parent.

Be grateful that it wasn't WORSE because it could have been.

   On your life's Journey you will go through GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES. that is just LIFE.

  As you are experiencing TOUGH TIMES to HELP you get through them just remember that things could be WORSE, because they COULD.

   When you realize that although whatever you are going through is UNPLEASANT. As long as it is DOABLE, you have to be THANKFUL.

   Have you ever complained to someone about a MINOR setback in your life then found out they were facing a MAJOR tragedy in their life?

  Recently I ran into someone I hadn't seen in YEARS.

   As we began to catch up on what we had been up to, I started talking FIRST.

  After I complained about a few UNPLEASANT INCIDENTS, it was her turn to catch me up. 

  Suddenly I realized that there I was talking as if I had faced tough moments, while the TRUTH is it was nothing compared to the TRAGEDIES that she had FACED.

  I became more aware that day then ever that if all you have is HURDLES to overcome on your LIFE'S JOURNEY, you should be THANKFUL.

  Because there are some people that have MOUNTAINS that they are FORCED to climb on THEIR LIFE'S JOURNEY.

Some things you shouldn't say out loud.

   When you are comfortable in conversation with others you forget to keep your guard up.

  When you are comfortable in conversation with others you forget that it can be used against you later in life.

  You don't expect that they are gathering FACTS to use as ammo against you later in life.

  It is nice to sit and have "small talk" with others, so nice that you forget that that person could be a TWO FACE SNAKE.

   One of their faces smiles and makes you feel comfortable but their other face is smirking knowing that is ammo that will destroy you later in life.

  It doesn't mean you can't have some great times sharing "small talk" it just means that you need to limit what "small talk" you share with others.

  Some things you just don't share with anyone but your partner and your family.

  And you sure don't write about it in cyberspace permanent ink so that any two faced snake can collect it for ammo to use against you.

  You have to keep your guard up in life , that's just LIFE. 

  Don't give anyone the ammo or opportunity to hurt you later in Life.

  Something's are better left unsaid to keep the two faced snakes from hearing them. 

  Unfortunately two face snakes are good at hiding their second face so if it isn't a spouse or family member consider everyone else a two face snake to protect yourself.

Don't judge yourself or anyone so harshly

   No one is perfect so quit complaining when they aren't perfect.

  Things don't always go as you had planned because that is just LIFE. You have to be willing to ADJUST as you go.

   You may have the best plans and done everything to accomplish what you had planned but plans change because circumstances change, that's just LIFE.

  You can disagree with someone on certain issues but totally agree with them on the most IMPORTANT things in Life.

  If you do what you thought was Best then no matter how things turn out give yourself credit for doing what you thought was Best.

  Before you judge someone remember that you never know what you would have done if you were in the situation they were in. 

  As long as you accept that no one is perfect then you can ENJOY the Good in everyone

 If it makes you HAPPY then who cares what anyone else thinks.

  If it makes them happy then why do you care if they do it.

  You do you and let them do them. 

  If you are waiting for the perfect anything or anyone them you are wasting your time because nothing and no one is perfect.

Would you want help if you needed it?

   I know you have heard the saying...Do unto others as you want others to do unto you. 

  If you ignore bad behavior when someone else is being mistreated it will become ACCEPTABLE. 

   Which means you will have to EXPECT and ACCEPT it when it happens to you or someone you love. 

  You reap what you sow.

  If you wouldn't want it to happen to you or someone you love them DON'T let it happen to ANYONE.

  CHOOSING to do nothing is a CHOICE you make AND YOU REAP WHAT YOU SO.

  The WORLD won't get better on it's own we all must do our part. 

   If you want things to be different then do something to make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE.

  Be kind to everyone you meet because you have no idea what they may be facing.

  PEACE ON EARTH IS POSSIBLE BY BRINGING PEACE OF MIND to one person at a time. We can do IT 😊

Being DIRECT with someone doesn't mean that they are cold hearted.

   When it comes to Doctors you definitely want someone who has a NICE PERSONALITY. 

  You know you want someone that you don't have to dread seeing. 

  But they can't just be nice, they have to also be knowledgeable to keep you healthy.

  Unfortunately the health care system has so many regulations and that leads to delays in receiving the medical care you need.

  Insurance has so many steps and red tape issues that test get delayed being performed.

   It can easily be done by a simple phone call between medical staff and insurance staff. Unfortunately no one just calls each other. 

  In stead they send an email and then they usually have up to a week or so to respond to any requests. 

   Not because they are overloaded with other requests and can't get it done, just because they let you know on a recorded message that it will take a week to do it so they ignore it for now.

   So you have to make sure that any doctor that you choose is willing to call them and NICELY DEMAND your test aren't held back because of some red tape.

 After decades of accepting that it takes weeks when a doctor orders test for you to get scheduled, I watched the new doctor have his secretary get someone on the phone and the test is scheduled for tomorrow. 

  Really? One phone call and it's scheduled the next day. That I thought was impossible. They always act as if it impossible for decades, and it isn't. OMG.

  Well DOCTOR B, I want to thank You for picking up the phone and I sure wish you would teach other doctors how to pick up a phone to prevent the RED TAPE from getting in the way of your patient's health.

  It is easy to ignore an email but a lot harder to ignore an actual human being. 

  Technology has a lot of benefits but it also has its disadvantages. And not having HUMAN CONTACT makes it easy to ignore the email. 

  Whether it is an email about medical, business or personal it's easy to ignore. You know you too see emails and say I don't want to deal with that I Will ignore it. 

  But if you connect in a HUMAN WAY you can't ignore it because you are HUMAN.

There are No regrets for things you tried but failed at

   You may not have been successful at everything that you tried to do but as long as you tried you didn't fail, you just weren't successful.

  You don't REGRET the things you tried. You will however REGRET the things you did not try.

  You won't know if you will be able to do it unless you give it a try.

  You will never have to say ...if only I would've... if you did try to do it. Even if you failed when you tried.

  Throughout your life's Journey when you are making a decision whether to do something or not just ask yourself...Will I regret it if I don't?

  When you ask an elderly person if they have any regrets they don't usually list things they did. They usually list the things that they didn't do.

  At the end of the day you want no regrets.

  At the end of the day you don't want no would'ves, could'ves, or should'ves so JUST DO IT.

It's temporary unless you do something that is permanent

   Don't do something to fix a temporary problem that will have permanent consequences.

  Once you do it, you can't undo it... what's done is done. So before you react STOP and think about what your actions will bring. 

  Things will happen on your life's Journey that will temporarily be painful, that is just LIFE.

  But if you aren't careful with how you react, it wont be a temporary problem anymore, it will be a problem that will permanently affect you in a negative way.

  When problems happen on your life's Journey just remember that if you whether the STORM it will eventually stop raining.

  If you react in a negative way you will turn a temporary problem into a problem that will permanently affect you in a negative way throughout your life's Journey.

   Will you choose A few moments of unpleasantness or a lifetime of regret?

Honesty is the best policy

   If there was someone who lied to you over and over again, would you honestly believe anything that they say?

   In the "good old days" they use to say a person was only as GOOD as their word.

  But "Nowadays" they say you can't believe a word you hear.

  If you give your word to someone, keep it.

  If you don't know, instead of making something up, just say I don't know. 

  An honest NO does far less damage then a YES when you have NO intentions of doing it.

   If you want to be known as an HONEST PERSON then be an HONEST PERSON.

  If you want people to trust you when you say something then don't say It unless you mean it.

  Just in case your Mom forgot to tell you, IF you don't have anything NICE to say then don't say anything at all.

  Be kind to everyone you meet because you have no idea what they may be facing. 

  Being HONEST is HONESTLY the best policy to live by.

You set STANDARDS for yourself

   When you were a child your family set the RULES you had to live by.

  When you are an adult you make the RULES that you choose to live by.

  You set the STANDARDS that you will have AND live by on your LIFE'S JOURNEY.

  Remember that you won't be COMFORTABLE in the skin you are in unless you are COMFORTABLE with what you do in the skin you are in.

  At the end of the day all that matters is that you are proud of everything you did that day. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

  You choose whether you are an HONEST person or not just like you choose what you eat each day.

  Your CHOICES, your RULES, your STANDARDS your BOUNDARIES are THINGS you do for YOURSELF.

  At the end of the day all that matters is that you are PROUD OF YOURSELF.

Follow the FIVE MINUTE RULE

 When I was younger I truly believed in the FIVE SECOND RULE when it came to sweet foods.

 But if it was a vegetable that fell to the ground it was INEDIBLE the very second it fell.

  As I got OLDER I realized that any food on the ground was INEDIBLE.

  All throughout my twenties and thirties, I thought nothing of pushing THINGS that needed done until another day.

  Then I realized that it wasn't postponed for one day, it turned into a week or two.

  For instance, I saw a stack of items that needed to be put out of the way in the hall closet.

 I convinced myself that it was a lazy SUNDAY I didn't want to put things up. I will just do it tomorrow. So I left them on the chair until tomorrow.

  Unfortunately I got busy the next day. So when I saw the things still sitting there I told myself it was okay to wait until tomorrow to put them up. 

  Unfortunately I was so preoccupied the next day that I didn't even notice them still sitting on the chair.

  Before I knew it, it was SUNDAY.

  I realized that I had put it off for an entire week.

  Now if I would have just taken the FIVE MINUTES it would have taken to put it up, I wouldn't have spent TEN MINUTES each day for SEVEN DAYS making excuses why I couldn't put them in the hall closet.

  You waste OVER an HOUR a week on making up excuses why you don't have FIVE MINUTES to do it that moment.

  For now on I will follow the FIVE MINUTE RULE. Anything that takes FIVE MINUTES OR LESS to do I will JUST DO IT.

  Don't turn a FIVE MINUTE JOB into a job that takes a week or two.



  Save time by taking the time to JUST DO IT so you can stop wasting your time trying to convince yourself why it is okay to NOT DO IT and waste your time.

  JUST DO IT so you can JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND when it's done so you don't waste your time.

You never know what you will experience on your life's journey.

   When you were younger you thought everything and anything you wanted was possible and so you were positive that one day it will happen.

   As you get older, you realize that it takes a lot of planning, time and effort to get anywhere.

  You may start off down the path you choose but it can end up leading you to a destination that you had no idea even existed, let alone one you would have chosen.

  On your LIFE'S JOURNEY you will get to explore many types of places, things and people that you never thought you would want to experience at all.

  If you keep an OPEN MIND as you go through your LIFE'S JOURNEY you will have many amazing Experiences of your LIFETIME.

  So what if you don't achieve exactly what you wanted. If you ENJOYED the JOURNEY that is what matters.

  So what if other people don't like it. As long as it makes you HAPPY then who cares.

  You never know if you would ENJOY doing it unless you do it to see if you ENJOY doing it.

  If you had a scripted path that you must follow on life's journey, where would the adventure be?

  ENJOY LIFE on your life's Journey no matter where your journey leads you. ENJOY THE RIDE.

  Coincidence and detours are meant to be.

To make a Buck at someone elses expense is NOT OKAY!!

   I hate to admit that I had heard MANY people talk about how people just didn't care about them because it was all about the mighty dollar.

  I had heard even many friends and family throughout my life say the same thing, 

  JUST to make a BUCK they would do anything AND they don't care who gets hurt.

  I didn't fully understand it since I had not experienced it to know what it actually meant.

  If I would have known I certainly would have started figuring out how to make sure that LEGALLY we have to put HUMANITY above the the MIGHTY DOLLAR.

  An example is a test can be $1600 if you have INSURANCE but if you are self pay that same test is only $250.

  Now it's great that I learned this and shared it with everyone I knew that didn't have INSURANCE. And especially now there are millions of people with NO INSURANCE. 

 But I realized that actually that kind of thing happens everywhere. 

  That is part of the reason why INSURANCE cost so much that people can't afford to have INSURANCE.

 If a test cost only $250 then it should be illegal to charge INSURANCE $1600. 

  Not to mention if people knew that everyone could get the test for only $250 they would get the test and that would lead to people being healthier.

 So essentially someone can make more MONEY  legally by allowing people to suffer. 

  What the heck. How can we IGNORE what is happening boldly right in front of our faces?

  If we IGNORE bad behavior it will become ACCEPTABLE behavior.

  If you wouldn't want it to happen to you or someone that you love them DON'T let it happen to anyone. 

  Like they say... you got to nip it in the Bud.

How you look at it determines how it affects you.

   When someone or something hurts you remember how you look at it determines whether it can continue hurting you or not.

   You see if you let it stay fresh on your mind then it can destroy your peace of mind.

  If you JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind then it can't hurt you.

  You have to acknowledge it because it happened but don't let it weigh heavy on your mind.

  Like the church sign that inspired me said.... It's okay to sit on your pitty-potty every now and again just be sure and FLUSH when you are done.

  If you want PEACE OF MIND you have to JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND SO PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM TO GET IN.

 Your thoughts are the reality you live whether it is actually reality or not.

  A bully says and does things to hurt others because they are hurting. 

  They don't even remember what they said or did so why would you let it stay fresh on your mind.

  It is what it is but sometimes it is just SHIT that needs to be FLUSHED. SO JUST FLUSH IT so PEACE OF MIND has ROOM to get in.

The best part of waking up is.....

   Do you remember the Folgers coffee slogan on the commercials?

  It was.... The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup.

  Not everyone drinks coffee.

  But everyone wants to LIVE so OUR LIFE SLOGAN is.... the best part of waking up is that you WOKE UP.

  Just waking up is a reason to smile.

  You may have some difficult things to face when you wake up but you have to be thankful that you woke up to face them.

  LIFE is a ROLLERCOASTER and there will be ups and downs as well as twists and Turns, that is just LIFE.

  We only have one LIFE to LIVE.

  We only have the time we have so don't waste it complaining or getting angry and wasting the time you have.

  If you want to ENJOY LIFE you have to ENJOY IT while you are LIVING IT.

  Don't waste your time complaining that your GLASS IS ONLY HALF FULL. 

  Just drink it and be THANKFUL that at least your glass is HALF FULL.

  You could die of thirst surrounded by water just take a drink and quench your thirst.

Just because they SHOULD doesn't mean that they WILL

   If you have been driving long enough you know that just because they SHOULD yield to traffic, doesn't mean that they WILL.

  You know that unless you want to wreck your car you will have to STOP AND YIELD to them to prevent an accident.

  If you are old enough you already know that just because they say they WILL do it doesn't mean that they WILL actually do it.

  If it is important that something get done you can't count on anyone but yourself to make sure that you get it done. 

  If they ask for your help remember that an honest no is better than telling them that you WILL help them when you know that you have no intentions of helping them.

  Keep in mind that just because others are okay doing something that you know is wrong doesn't mean that it is the right thing for you to do. 

  Wrong is wrong, period.

   If you wouldn't want it to happen to you or someone you love them don't let it happen to anyone.

  You can't blame them if you do it either because you chose to do it, so you WILL have no one but yourself to blame for doing it.

  People SHOULD be honest but we all choose whether we are going to be an honest person or not, just as easily as we choose whether to eat a hamburger or a pizza for dinner.

  You have a choice and you will pay the consequences for every CHOICE that you make.

  And remember choosing to do nothing is still a choice you make.

  Knowing that just because they SHOULD doesn't mean that they WILL is what it takes to know that you can only count on yourself to get 'R done.

Do you want it or do you need it?

 Before you get angry ask yourself do I want it or do I need it?

 Needing it, is totally different than wanting it. 

 Some things may be nice if you get it but that doesn't mean you need it.

  If you have everything you need, you should be thankful.

  But when you don't get everything you want that is no reason to get angry.

  I watched someone complain about not being able to go on an amazing vacation to someone I knew was struggling just to pay their monthly bills.

  The saddest part is that they too knew that the other person was struggling to get the basic necessities that they needed.

  I saw the deep saddness in their eyes as they listened to your anger and frustration that you were missing a grand vacation.

  But I didn't see any feeling of Compassion in your eyes knowing that they were stressed out trying to figure out how to even feed their family. 

  You have no idea that if you would help someone have the necessities that they need it is way more GRATIFYING then wasting a ton of of money on that dream vacation could ever bring you.

  Instead of wasting your money, time and effort on things you don't need, ENJOY what it FEELS like to help someone have the necessities that they desperately need.

  You may have a lot of LOVE in your heart but can anyone FEEL it?

To be the BEST YOU that YOU can be you have to be the BEST that you can be.

   You can't BLAME something that happened when you were ten on your bad behavior today.

  You can't BLAME something someone said to you years ago on your bad decisions.

  You can't BLAME it on your parents when you are Old enough to know better.

  You can't BLAME it on the circumstances you have faced when it is how you reacted to the circumstances that determines the outcome.

  You can't LEARN from your MISTAKES if you don't ADMIT that you made a MISTAKE.

  You can't expect anyone to BELIEVE IN you if you don't tell the TRUTH.

   You are who you are because you are who you are. If you want to be the BEST YOU that you can be, you have to do your BEST.

You are wasting your time and you don't even know it.

   When you get OLDER you realize that you spent so much time on things that won't matter at all when you are OLDER

  You thought if I can just be consistent and work hard everything will work out fine but you don't always get  what you expected for your hard work.

  I am thankful that I was told you don't want a house with stairs because when you are OLDER it is hard to constantly go up and down stairs.

  I had always known that time flys by, but who could have known that in the blink of the eye, another year has gone by. 

  What you spend time doing today will determine how things will be later for you in the future.

  What you want for yourself can only be possible by doing what you have to do to have it.

Remember that it is only possible to have what you need when you are OLDER by knowing and doing what you have to before you get Old.

Shout it out LOUDER so it can be Heard

   The television and the internet reports mostly on the negative things. About ninety percent of it is negative stories.

   What if we turn those numbers around? 

   Instead of ninety percent negative, it was ninety percent positive.

   The "LOUDEST VOICE" is the message that gets heard. 

   If you plant only tomato seeds then you know that you can only reap tomatoes.

  You reap what you sow. 

  If we want to see POSITIVITY in the World we need to plant seeds of POSITIVE MESSAGES.

  Because we know that we reap what we sow.

  Let's be the "LOUDEST VOICE" so our POSITIVE WORDS are what is heard loud and clear. 

  If you want to make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE then do something or say something that will make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE to someone.

  You may have a lot of LOVE in your heart but can anyone FEEL it?

You can't learn from them if you don't listen to them!

   When you are old you realize that it is hard to SHARE your WISDOM with others when they don't stop long enough to talk.

  During the quarantine families got to spend a lot of time with each other with plenty of time to sit down and talk.

  I know many people have told me they had to learn how to do some homemade cooking because restaurants were closed. 

  Several people say they still gather together once a month to cook a homemade meal and just enjoy spending time with each other.

  It's hard to find any positives that came from the quarantine but the fact that families now have the desire to sit down and just enjoy each other's company is definitely a positive difference.

  I was thinking about all the times I tried to share my wisdom to prevent someone from learning it the hard way, but they didn't LISTEN. 

  Then I thought about how in this fast paced world we live in people don't stop long enough to LISTEN.

  Let's get in the HABIT of spending time together and just enjoy each other's company. 

  A wise man knows that if you don't LISTEN to the wisdom of others you can't learn what you need to know that could save you from learning it the hard way.

Can we just compromise?

   We all know that there are certain subjects that we will never agree on. Therefore we should just agree to disagree.

   We all know that we are each unique in many ways. It would be very boring if we were all the same. 

   We will have to compromise and meet in the middle as we navigate on our Life's Journey.

   We are free to do what makes ourselves happy as long as it doesn't affect anyone else's happiness.

   If we want our opinion to be respected we have to respect their opinion. 

   If we want community unity we have to do what is best for everyone in your community.

   If you want to be whoever you want to be then you have to let them be whoever they want to be. 

   If you want it then compromise so that everyone gets what they need.

Peace of mind is just a FLUSH away

     JUST FLUSH IT......Flush it as it comes

     JUST FLUSH IT....... Flush away your doubts

     JUST FLUSH IT....... it's the only way

     Because to have PEACE OF MIND you have to take your negative thoughts and JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND SO PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM TO GET IN. 

     Our minds have an endless stream of THOUGHTS running through our mind trying to grab our attention. 

     If it evokes a negative feeling then at a quick glance JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind don't keep it fresh on your mind. 

     Remember that if you want PEACE OF MIND you have to take the NEGATIVITE THOUGHTS and JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND SO PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM TO GET IN. 

Friday, June 3, 2022

As long as you know that is all that matters

   As long as you like it then do it because it doesn't matter if anyone else likes it.

  As long as you know that it is the best thing for you to do, then do it. It doesn't matter whether anyone else thinks that it's not what you should do.

  If it makes you HAPPY then do it. 

  You know you best and you know what is best for YOU. 

  Just because it works for someone else doesn't mean that it will work for you. 

  Just because they don't think it will work doesn't mean that it won't work for you.

  Since you alone pay the consequences for every choice you make, then you alone should make every decision.

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

  We all have our OWN OPINIONS but the only OPINION that counts is YOURS!

  To be the BEST YOU that YOU can be takes being YOU.

Putting it off VS It can wait

   You can't put everything off until TOMORROW because TOMORROW you may have other things you want to do.

  So if you can do it TODAY then JUST DO IT and TOMORROW you will be free to do something else.

  Even though you shouldn't put it off until TOMORROW, if you just can't do it TODAY it is OKAY to put it off until TOMORROW.

  There are just some days when there are not enough hours in a day to get everything done.

  Whether it is because you have too many things planned or if it is because it will take longer than you expected, that's okay. 

  If it's because you just absolutely don't feel like doing it, that too is okay.

  Not everything goes exactly how you planned them to go, that's just LIFE.

  But regardless how things go or at what speeds things go, you have to ENJOY LIFE while you are living it.

  Don't schedule yourself more than you can do nor judge yourself so harshly when things don't work out exactly how they are scheduled to be done.

  Do what you can do and accept that no one can do everything everytime, that's just LIFE.

  As long as you have done the best that you can do be proud that you did the best that you could do.

  Because at the end of the day all that matters is that you are proud of what you have done.

Happy Memorial Day Everyone

  Memorial Day is a time to remember those that are no longer with us.

  To our Veterans who sacrificed everything so that All of us are free, I Thank You.

  To my family and friends who have passed away, I miss you dearly.

  As we gather to celebrate Memorial Day let us enjoy spending time together as we remember all those who have passed away. 

  ALL we have is the time we have which is why we need to make the most of the time we have with those we Love. 

  Happy Memorial Day Everyone.

You have to pick and choose your battles.

   Everywhere you look these days there are hurdles in every direction.

   You will have to pick and choose which hurdles that are worth your effort to cross them.

   Once it may have been a battle worth fighting for but things change so quickly that you have to keep re-evaluating whether it is still necessary.

   There will be some battles that you just can't win so don't waste your time and energy fighting them.

  You don't have to win every battle to win the war.

   If it doesn't make a difference in the overall "big picture" of your Life then save your time and energy to make all the small positive differences that you can.

   At times it may seem like you are moving two steps forward and then you fall one step backwards.

  But even if that is true you are still one step closer to where you want to go.

    If it's worth fighting for, then fight for it.

School should be a safe place for our children!

   It's time we start focusing on our children and do everything and anything we have to do to keep them safe.

   We need to promote community unity and work together so our community is safe.

   We need to use our money on things that make our children safe not waste millions on things like how fast ketchup comes out of the bottle

  We need to spread HUMANITY to replace the INSANITY we see in SOCIETY.

  We need to make school a place where children feel safe.

  We need to make school a place where kids are not bullied.

  We need to be kind to one another. 

  We need to reach out when someone needs help and give them a helping hand.

  We need to get together and figure out how to prevent these tragedies from ever happening.

  Together we can if united we stand together to make our schools safe.

Do you appreciate what you do have?

   It may not be everything that you wanted but you should APPRECIATE that you have everything that you need. 

  It may be aggravating that you have to repair your roof but be THANKFUL that you have a house to fix because some people don't have a home. 

  With the high price of food these days you may have to substitute an ingredient to be able to afford it. But you still are LUCKY because there are some people who can't afford to eat.

  You may face some challenges today but you should be THANKFUL that you woke up this morning to face them. 

  You may have to ADJUST as you go through it but you got to be THANKFUL that you were able to ADJUST so you could keep moving forward and work through it.

  Not everyone has your best interest at heart so even though it may hurt to Walk away from them you have to be THANKFUL that you can get away from them so they can't hurt you anymore.

  Sometimes even though it may be painful it may take a TORNADO in your personal life to get you where you are meant to be. 

  When you APPRECIATE what you do have you won't miss what you thought you needed.

  As long as you and those you love are healthy, that is a reason to be THANKFUL.

To know you got to think about it

   There is nothing wrong with being spontaneous but you have to take the time to THINK about it to make sure that it is not dangerous.

   You don't need to overthink about it but you have to stop and THINK about it to make sure you should do it.

   You have to THINK about it before you REACT to it. 

   You have to THINK about what your reaction will bring. 

   Remember that it is not the circumstances that you face that determines the outcome but how you REACT to it.

   If you see trouble coming THEN get out of the way.

   No matter how bad you want something, it doesn't mean that you will get it or that it is good for you.

   If you know that you should walk away then no need to THINK about it anymore just start walking. 

  It is what it is and ignoring it doesn't change it.

  If it is something important to you then THINK about it so you know exactly what you need to do whether it is something you want to do or not. JUST DO IT.

Just Do It so there is no would've, could've or should've later

   You will have no regrets if you know that you did everything that you could do.

   You won't have to say would've, could've or should've if you did everything that you could.

   You will not be successful at everything that you try to do. But at least you will be proud that you tried to do it. 

   You won't know what is actually possible unless you try everything that you could possibly do to find out.

   You can only do what you can do.

    So as long as you did the best that you could do then you can be proud of yourself no matter what the outcome is. 

   You don't regret the things that you tried but failed at it. But you will regret the things that you failed because you never even tried to do.

You made it through it !

 When you doubt that you can do it, remember what you have already done. 

  When you doubt that you can do it, just remember how far you have already came. 

  When you doubt that you can do it, remember the ANT AND THE RUBBER TREE PLANT.

 When you doubt that you can do it, be like the little engine who could. 

  When you doubt that you can do it, JUST FLUSH AWAY YOUR DOUBTS, it's the only way to get 'r done.

  JUST FLUSH IT......FLUSH AWAY YOUR DOUBTS.

  You can do it, Yes you can!

What are you waiting for?

   You can't wait to enjoy only the "BIG THINGS" in life, because they are few and far between.

   If you want to ENJOY LIFE you have to ENJOY IT while you are living it.

   The "LITTLE THINGS" in life are the MOST IMPORTANT PART OF LIFE.

  If you want to be happy you have to ENJOY the "LITTLE THINGS" that makes you happy.

  It may be that you ENJOY taking a walk around your neighborhood.  

   Well take more walks to ENJOY yourself more and you will be HAPPIER. 

  If painting makes you HAPPY then you should paint more. 

  Anything that makes you FEEL HAPPY is exactly what you need to do more often to be HAPPIER. 

  Also remember that if it makes you HAPPY then it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about what you are doing.

  Like the plaque on my wall says;

I asked God for all things that I might ENJOY LIFE. He gave me LIFE that I might ENJOY ALL THINGS.

You Saw it but did you see it really?

   We form an opinion based on what we see. But we can only see what we see.

   When you can only see what someone wants you to see then you only see what you see.

   What you look for determines what you will find. It could be right in front of you but you weren't looking for it so you couldn't see it.

   If you only focus on fifty percent of something then there is fifty percent that you won't see.

  Ten people could all see the same thing yet they all could see ten different things. 

   If you are only looking for things that are green then if it isn't Green then you won't see it.

   If you have a narrow point of view then you need to be open minded so you can see what is in front of you.

   If you want to know all that you can then you have to learn everything that you can. 

   Keep your eyes wide open so you see everything that you can possibly see. 

  Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
