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.


  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.


  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.

They are not expecting you to have the answer they need they just hope you will take the time to listen to them

   Of course you don't expect everyone or anyone to have all the answers to your questions. 

  Heck some questions there just are no answers for, not even on Google.

  You taking the time to listen to them is helping them.

  Just by listening to what they say to you allows them to see things a little more clearly so they can figure out the best answer for themselves.

  In this fast paced world we live in we don't stop long enough to SMELL THE ROSES and listen to each other.

  When someone falls we tend to say we had no idea that there was anything they were struggling with. 

  Did you take the time to sit and listen to them so they could tell you about it?

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

We need the rain so we have to be happy even when we get wet

  It's going to rain which means there is a chance you could get wet.

   Good thing you don't melt when you get wet like the Wicked Witch in the movie Wizard of Oz.

  You know we need the rain so we need to be grateful when it rains. 

  The change in the Seasons is a necessary part of a healthy Eco system. Whether it is Land, Sea or Air there is a reason why we need the different Seasons. 

  On your own Life's Journey there are different Seasons that are a necessary part of Life.

  Life is full of changes and seasons and you will have to ADJUST AS YOU GO.

  You may not like change but things are always changing so you have to ADJUST AS YOU GO.

  You can't get too comfortable in life because life is always changing.

  Just like the weather outside changes you have to ADJUST and dress accordingly for the season. 

  When you are on the ROLLERCOASTER of LIFE you have to ENJOY THE RIDE. 

  There will be ups and downs as well as Twists and Turns.

  There will be times when you will have to twist like a pretzel but just ADJUST so you can ENJOY life while you are living it, PERIOD.

Do you realize how people can feel your anger without you saying a single word?

   Have you ever walked into a room and felt tension in the air?

  Have you ever knew by the look on someone's face that they were full of anger inside?

  Have you ever felt like someone was about to spew anger all over you just by the aura that surrounded them?

  Have you ever decided to leave without doing what you came for just because you felt uncomfortable there?

  When you are full of anger inside it seeps out of you and onto others without you saying or doing anything. 

  Next time you are angry go look in the mirror to see what other people see. 

  When you are angry and someone walks up to you notice how their demeanor changes as your anger is all around in the air. 

   When someone is filled with Joy don't let your anger ZAP the JOY out of them. 

  At the doctor's office today the ANGER of the receptionist was making patients sicker when they were coming to see the doctor to get better. 

   You shouldn't SPREAD the flu because it would make others sick and you shouldn't SPREAD your ANGER because it too makes people sick. 

  Take what has angered you and JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND before it makes you or anyone else sick.

Keep your options open

   You need OPTIONS if you want to have a CHOICE. 

   You may not see the importance now but if you keep the OPTION open then it will still be an OPTION if you change your opinion about it later. 

   When you have such a narrow view you won't see it even though it is right in front of you. 

   When you are closed minded then you close the door to any chance of you seeing what lies behind the closed doors. 

   If you want to be free to have your own OPINION then you have to let others have the right to have their own OPINION. 

   Keep your mind WIDE OPEN to allow your CHOICES to be a WIDE VARIETY of OPTIONS TO CHOOSE from. 

  If opportunity comes knocking you have to OPEN THE DOOR to see if it is a good opportunity or if you should close it. 

  If you want to have OPTIONS then keep all your OPTIONS open so you will have OPTIONS.
