Write it down so you can see what to do

    Keeping track of things helps you know if you are on the WRONG track.

   Keeping track of things helps you know if you are on the RIGHT track.

   If you don't keep track of things you won't know what you need to do to stay on track.

   Learning from your mistakes is the only way not to keep making the same mistakes.

  That is why you have to be accountable for your mistakes because you can't learn from your mistakes unless you admit that you made a mistake.

  At the end of the day write down the pros and cons of your day.

  You can at times have a long list of cons but realize that the one pro outweighs the cons.

   For instance if your vehicle gets hit by another car it's hard to imagine any PRO from that situation.

  Sure you will experience a lot of CONS but the fact that you are alive to deal with them is something to be THANKFUL for.

  When you are having a bad day start writing a list of PROS AND CONS to see what you should be THANKFUL for.

  The difference between a GOOD DAY and a BAD DAY is simply being THANKFUL because it could have been worse.

There may not be a simple answer

   What would you do if you could do anything you wanted but you could only choose one thing.

   There is no wrong answer but it may not be a simple answer either.

   There are many things that you may want to change but which thing is most important to you?

  Each answer changes something but does it change the most important thing to you?

  It may take several things to change to make the positive difference in your life that you would like to see.

  Are you going to choose to change something to make your finances better or something to make your health better?

  Are you going to choose to make yourself happy or would you rather make a change that your family as a group will benefit from?

  You definitely need to think about it before you make that choice.

  One thing is for sure you can't get too comfortable in life because things are always changing.

  And whether you like the changes or not you have to keep up with all the changes and ADJUST to the changes.

   But if you are lucky enough to get a chance to choose anything you want to change, STOP and really think about what you would like to change?

  Think about what your CHOICE will bring in the BIG PICTURE of your life. 

   Choose wisely because you have to live with the consequences of every choice you make in your life.

There is no such thing as the PERFECT ANYTHING

    IF you are waiting for the PERFECT TIME in your Life to do it then you will never get to do it.

   If you are waiting for the PERFECT PERSON to come along you will be alone.

   If you are waiting for the PERFECT OPPORTUNITY to come along you will miss all the opportunities that come your way.

   There is no such thing as the PERFECT ANYTHING so quit waiting for the PERFECT ANYTHING.

   If you tell yourself that you have to do it PERFECTLY you will set yourself up for FAILURE.

   You don't have to do it PERFECTLY you just got to do it the BEST that you can.

   It is PERFECTLY NORMAL to want to be the BEST that you can be but be PERFECTLY HONEST with yourself that NO ONE IS PERFECT.

   BE  PROUD that you are the BEST YOU THAT YOU CAN BE.

You can't have a feeling without first having a thought

    What you don't know can't HURT you.

   The moment you get out of bed the thoughts in your head will determine what kind of day you will have.

   You have to choose wisely which thoughts you want to fill your MIND with.

    If you think it is going to be a bad day then it will be a bad day.

    If you wake up and think that today is going to be a great day for you then it will be.

   If you want to feel happy inside you have to think happy thoughts in your mind so you will be happy.

   You can't have a feeling about it without having a thought about it first.

   Remember Peter Pan could only fly if he thought happy THOUGHTS.

   When you wake up in the morning tell yourself I am going to be like Peter Pan.

   Your thoughts are the reality that you will live in so think positively and you will have a positively great day.

ENJOY Life while you are living it

   You will face challenges on your life's Journey, that is just Life.

   You won't always get what you want but you should always be THANKFUL that you have what you need.

   You will experience painful situations throughout your Life's Journey but those times were necessary for you to grow.

  Sometimes it takes a TORNADO in your personal life but it was the ONLY WAY to get you where you are supposed to be.

  You will look back one day and see that you are who you are because of everything that happened in your past, both the GOOD and the BAD.

  Some of my most PRECIOUS memories are from the hardest times in my life.

  Some of my most PROUDEST moments were achieved during the hardest times of my life.

  In order to ENJOY LIFE you have to ENJOY LIFE while you are LIVING IT, both the GOOD TIMES and the BAD TIMES.

  Remember that you only have the TIME you have so ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF IT!

  YESTERDAY is already GONE and TOMORROW may never come but TODAY is yours to ENJOY.

How you look at it determines what you see

   If you only look at it from one side, you will have no idea what is on the other side.

   If you only see it from one point of view, you will have no idea what you won't see.

   If you want to make the best decision you will have to first get all the facts so you can truly make the best decision.

  You know what you know but you only know what you know.

  How you LOOK at it will determine what you SEE and what you SEE will determine how you will REACT based on what you know.

  The circumstances you face doesn't determine the outcome.

  How you REACT to the circumstances determines the outcome.

  Stop before you react so you can REACT in the best way to get the best outcome possible.

  Your REACTION makes all the difference in the world so STOP and THINK about what your ACTIONS will bring. 

  Your first REACTION to a negative situation will bring a negative outcome so STOP and decide how you should REACT to have a positive outcome.

You will miss out if you quit when the going gets tough.

   If you keep turning around after you have climbed half of the way up, you will never reach the top of the stairs.

  If you keep giving up then you will never be successful at it.

  Don't give up when times are tough because anything worth having is worth the hard work.

  If it is important to you then it is important to make sure that you do whatever it takes for you to get'R done. 

  Make this YOUR BEST YEAR ever by doing the BEST you can do and be the BEST YOU that you can be.

  Be realistic and remind yourself that you DON'T have to do it perfectly.

  You just need to do it so that it is successfully done.

Do you think that Friday the 13th is a unlucky day?

   To some people Friday the 13th is a day they don't want to do anything for fear that it is an unlucky day.

   Some people think no matter what day it falls on the 13th is unlucky.

  But if you ask them why they feel that way they can't give you an answer.

  They have to admit they don't have a reason it is just what they have always heard.

  Although I consider 13 to be my lucky number, I still stay home on the 13th just because I don't want to take any chances.

  I also don't walk under a ladder not only because it is supposed to be unlucky but because why would I when it's easier to walk around it.

  Is there something that you are superstitious of?

  It may be Friday the 13th but that doesn't mean that YOU DON'T have a chance to win the 1.3 BILLION DOLLAR MEGA MILLIONS GAME.

  As long as you buy a ticket you have a chance to win, even on Friday the 13th.

Are you being HONEST with yourself?


  If you don't ADMIT it when you make a mistake then you won't LEARN from it.

  If you LEARN as you go through your Life's Journey you will LEARN what you need to so you are able to ENJOY your journey.

   Being HONEST with yourself doesn't mean that you have to JUDGE yourself harshly because that would HURT YOU.

   You just need to ACKNOWLEDGE your mistakes and DON'T REPEAT THEM.

  A mistake only happens once because if you repeat it then it is a HABIT THAT YOU NEED TO BREAK.

  Remember we all make mistakes, no one is perfect.

  Be HONEST with yourself and ADMIT when you make a mistake so you can LEARN what NOT TO DO.

  HONESTY is the only way to set yourself FREE so you can ENJOY LIFE while you are LIVING IT.

Before you know it you will be the OLDER generation

   When you are young you look at people who are thirty as old 

   But before you know it you are thirty years old and you realize that you are still young at heart and full of energy.

  At this age you think you have plenty of time before you will be part of the OLDER GENERATION.

  BUT after a decade you realize that you are in the mid life stage and time seems to be flying faster.

 Now each year you feel like the next decade is just around the corner.

 You realize it's time to accomplish your long term goals because it won't be long before you will want to relax and enjoy them.

  Before you know it you will realize that you are OLD and you are the OLDER GENERATION.

  The CIRCLE OF LIFE seems to go FASTER the OLDER you get.

 And that means you are going to get OLD faster than you think so do everything you can while you are YOUNG enough to do it.

  You may still feel YOUNG AT HEART when you are OLD but your OLD BODY can only do what your OLD BODY can do.

It's a NEW YEAR, so it's out with the old and in with the new

   It's a NEW YEAR which means you have a CHANCE to have a NEW START.

   Keep in mind that if it didn't work for you last year, it won't work this year so do things differently.

  If you want things to be DIFFERENT this year you will have to do things DIFFERENTLY.

  If you want a FRESH START you can't bring any CRAP from last year with you.

  That's like choosing to carry SAND BAGS that you know will only weigh you down making your life's Journey harder than it should be.

  If you want a FRESH START you got to JUST FLUSH IT so you can START OFF FRESH.

  Otherwise if you don't do anything DIFFERENTLY then it will be the SAME OLD CRAP just a DIFFERENT YEAR.

  I don't know about you, but I am THANKFUL the NEW YEAR IS FINALLY HERE!

If it isn't that important then it is important to not let It affect you

    There is always decisions you will have to make as you are on your life's Journey.

    There are always challenges that you will have to face on your life's Journey.

   There are always choices you will have to make on your life's Journey.

  If it is important to you, then it's important to make sure that you do everything you need to do to be successful at it.

  If it doesn't matter then it shouldn't affect you negatively.

  Pick and choose your battles because not everything is worth fighting for.

  If it isn't a life or death situation then don't make it one by worrying yourself to death about it.

Don't keep making changes to fit in with OTHERS

   If you keep changing to please OTHERS, before you know it you won't know who you are.

  If it against your beliefs then it isn't for you because it is not who you are.

  If it is against you sticking to the boundaries that you set for yourself then don't follow them past your boundaries.

  Remember just because someone else does it doesn't mean it's the right thing to do.

  If you know it is the wrong thing for you to do then don't do it.

  There may be things that you want to change to make this year your best year ever.

   But that DOESN'T mean to change WHO YOU ARE it just means to be the BEST YOU THAT YOU CAN BE.

  Stay true to yourself so you can be your true self.

  Happy New Year EVERYONE.
