Just a little goes a long way

   Every random act of KINDNESS makes a POSITIVE difference.

   But that is only possible if you do a random act of KINDNESS.

   A KIND word can make a POSITIVE difference.

   But that is ONLY possible if you say a KIND word to someone.

   Your words of ENCOURAGEMENT can give them the COURAGE they need 

   But that is ONLY possible if you say words of ENCOURAGEMENT for them to HEAR.

   You can SMILE and it will automatically bring a SMILE to their face.

   But that is ONLY possible if you SMILE at them first.

   If you want to make a POSITIVE difference in the World it is ONLY possible if you do or say something POSITIVE.

  The World won't get better on its OWN we all must do OUR PART.

Don't let them think for a moment that it is okay

    You definitely don't have control of what OTHERS do but you can make it clear how you feel about what they do.

   Don't IGNORE bad behavior or it will make it ACCEPTABLE.

   If you want to be treated HUMANELY then stand up for yourself and others to make sure everyone is treated HUMANELY.

  If you don't tell them what they are doing is UNACCEPTABLE they will assume that you are okay and ACCEPT what they are doing.

  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 still a choice you make.

  If you let someone treat you badly then they are going to CONTINUE treating you badly. 

  You can't control what OTHERS do but you sure don't have to give them a CHANCE to keep treating you badly.

You don't want to be guessing, you need to know

   If it is important to you then don't make an UNEDUCATED GUESS, get the facts.

   You may think that it would be nice if it were true but you won't know for sure unless you get the facts that will help you know for sure.

  Just because OTHERS are doing it doesn't mean that it is the right thing to do.

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

   If you want to make a wise decision then get the facts so that you can make a wise decision.

  If you narrow your point of view you limit what you see that you base your decisions on.

  If it is IMPORTANT to you then it is IMPORTANT to take the time to get ALL THE FACTS.

   Because it is a FACT that you will have to live with the consequences for every decision that you make.

   Before you decide how to REACT think about what your REACTION will bring because once you REACT you can't take it back.

Will it matter in the "Big picture" in your future?

   What is important to you right now may not matter at all in your future.

   It may be easier for now but will it make things harder for you in the future?

   You might be okay walking upstairs now but when you are older will you want to have stairs that you have to walk up?

   You may think that you will always have options but if you paint yourself in a corner you won't have options in your future.

  You may think they are always going to be there to help but you may find yourself alone so make sure you make things as simple as possible so you can take care of yourself.

   You need to make the necessary changes along your Life's Journey so you will have what you need to take care of yourself in the future.

  You definitely need to enjoy your TODAYS but you also have to plan on what you will need to enjoy your future TODAYS .

They know that you don't have the answer they just need you to listen

    You don't have to solve their problem to help them.

   They don't expect you to know the answer they just hope that you will take the time to listen to the problem they are having to help them.

   You don't have to say anything, you just need to give them a moment of your time to listen to them which will help them.

   As they tell you what they are going through it helps them see and understand what they are going through.

   As they see it they may just see what they need to see to know how they can solve it.

   You can help them by letting them see it so they can help themselves.

   You don't have to have a lot of money to help them.

   You don't have to spend a dime you just have to freely let them talk while you listen.

   They just need you to stop and give them a moment of your time and listen.

There may be questions you have that there just isn't an answer for

    Sometimes we waste our time and energy looking for answers to questions that there just isn't an answer for, not even on Google.

   You may wander why things could have even happened and you may never know yet you know that you are glad that they happened.

   Every thing happens for a reason.

   Even though you may never know what the reason was you can see that if it hadn't happened you wouldn't be where you are today.

  Sometimes things just happened because it had to happen to get you where you were supposed to be and it was the only way to get you there.

   We only have the TIME we have so don't waste it trying to figure out the answers to questions that there simply is no answer to, not even on Google.

   You can't drive a car safely while only looking in the rearview mirror no more than you can ENJOY today if you spend it only looking at what happened yesterday.

   Yesterday is already GONE and tomorrow may never come but TODAY is yours to ENJOY.

  ENJOY life while you are living it.

You can't take it with you

    We spend our lifetimes gathering THINGS that interest us.

   We display the THINGS to enjoy them again and again.

   Unfortunately you can't take it with you and your family doesn't want it when you are gone.

  So what will happen to all the THINGS you have collected?

   If your family doesn't want it while you are alive they also won't want it when you are gone.

  So as you are dusting all you have collected perhaps you need to get creative to pass it on to OTHERS so your family has less to deal with down the road.

  I decided to pick a few THINGS that I really had hoped certain family members would keep.

  Then I wrapped them up and decided to give it to them as their gift for Christmas.

  Now at least they have one of my "DUST COLLECTORS" to DUST on their shelves that they will hopefully ENJOY THE MEMORY of a special gift I gave them.

  I also picked a special "DUST COLLECTOR" that I wanted to give to friends I had known and wrapped it up and mailed it to them.

   It was fun to get a call when they received it and together we were reminiscing about why I chose it to pass on to them.

   Now I have less to DUST.

Your environment has a lot to do with it

   You are not born with KNOWLEDGE about anything, YOU LEARN as you grow.

   You are not born with an OPINION, YOU FORM YOUR OPINION from what YOU LEARN as you grow.

   Every HOME is a CLASSROOM and every PARENT is a TEACHER.

   IT  takes a VILLAGE to RAISE A CHILD to be a good person.

   Our SCHOOLS should be a place where CHILDREN are safe and are TAUGHT HUMANITY as well as math and science.


  Let's STAND UNITED to make sure everyone both Young and Old are treated HUMANELY.

What seeds are you sowing?

   WHAT messages are you passing on to others?

   Don't just COMPLAIN about the things that you feel are holding you back, STOP letting it hold you back.

  If you want things to be DIFFERENT than you have to do something DIFFERENTLY.

   You may not be able to CHANGE what anyone else does but what YOU DO IS UP TO YOU.

   People who hurt OTHERS are people who are HURTING.

   You won't get anywhere ARGUING with them about what they SHOULD do it will only keep the ANGRY tension going.

  If you RESPOND to them with KINDNESS you have a chance to end the NEGATIVITY that CONSUMES THEM.

  You can't put out  a FIRE by throwing FIRE on it.

   If you plant tomato seeds you will only harvest tomatoes.

  If you want strawberries then you have to plant strawberry seeds.

   It's TRUE you REAP what you sow.

   What seeds are you planting?

  SPREAD seeds of HUMANITY to replace the INSANITY we see in society.

Distracting yourself from thinking about something else is a way to change your negative thoughts.

    Keeping things FRESH on your mind DOESN'T allow you to think of anything else.

   Keeping NEGATIVE thoughts FRESH on your mind DOESN'T allow you to have any POSITIVE thoughts.

  Take the NEGATIVE experiences from your PAST and JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind.

  If you keep PAINFUL THOUGHTS FRESH on your mind it will allow it to keep HURTING you OVER AND OVER AGAIN, JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind.

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

  You DIDN'T have a CHOICE when it happened the first time and HURT you but you can CHOOSE to JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND so it can't HURT you OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

  When a NEGATIVE thought POPS UP quickly JUST FLUSH IT!!

Shit happens and you have to JUST FLUSH IT AS IT COMES!

    SHIT HAPPENS, that's just Life.

    You will have good days and bad days, that's just Life.

   You won't get everything that you want, that's just Life.

   You won't always get what you deserve, that's just Life.

   You won't always get what you have earned, that's just Life.

  You won't always get the credit you deserve but you know what you did and no one can take that away from you.

   If you want PEACE OF MIND you have to take all the negativity and JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so PEACE OF MIND has ROOM to get in!

  As long as you do what you believe is the right thing to do, you won't have any regrets because you did what you thought was the right thing to do.

  Remember that shit happens, that's just Life.

  And no one is perfect so DON'T judge yourself so harshly when you make a mistake, you are human.

  You can either be your worst enemy or your biggest cheerleader. 

  How you look at what happens on your Life's Journey will determine what you feel about what has happened.

  Take the painful experiences and JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so PEACE OF MIND has ROOM to get in.

   Shit happens, JUST FLUSH IT AS IT COMES so it doesn't stink up your TODAY'S.

A picture says a lot

    If you want to explain it to them in a way they will understand just help them picture it in a way they can see it.

   If they can't see a possible way they can do it then they won't bother wasting their time or energy trying to do it.

  Their point of view is the only view they can see unless you show them a different point of view to look at.

   If they only see it from one point of view they will only have that view to base their opinion of it on.

  It reminds of the time my creative writing teacher gave us the assignment of describing a painting to a blind man.

   You can't describe it as a color because they have never seen color.

  You can't describe the scene because they have never seen anything to compare it to.

  Then I said do you know what it feels like when you feel comfortable and relaxed? 

  Well that is what it looks like.

 If you want anyone to see the picture then show them in a way that they can see it.
