Be true to yourself

    You know that you can not please everyone no matter what you do.

    You alone will have to live with the consequences for everything that you do so only do what you think is best for you to do.

   People tell you what they think that you should do but you have to be true to yourself and do what is best for you.

   You won't feel comfortable in the skin you are in unless you are comfortable with what you do in the skin you are in.

   Just because other people are doing it doesn't mean that it is the right thing for you to do.

   What works for someone else may not work for you.

   You can blame it on the moon but you are the only one to blame for everything that you personally do.

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

  You know what you should do and that is what you should do no matter what anyone else does or tells you to do. 

  Stay true to yourself and do you and let them do them because at the end of the day you want to be the BEST YOU that you can be.

Be open to learning

    You have to be willing to LISTEN if you want to HEAR what they have to say.

    You have to keep an OPEN MIND if you want to SEE something from a different point of view.

    You have to ACCEPT feed back and NOT get angry when they point out what you should have done differently, that is how they TEACH you.

    If you keep telling yourself you know everything you DON'T need to LISTEN to anyone, then you can't LEARN because you will CLOSE your ears and you won't be LISTENING.

    Be HONEST with yourself. 

   You DON'T know everything and you KNOW that you DON'T know everything so why are you walking around like a KNOW IT ALL refusing to LEARN?

    You can't LEARN what you need to unless you are OPEN to LEARNING.

    When you NEED to KNOW, admit that you DON'T KNOW so you can LEARN what you NEED to KNOW.

    KEEP an OPEN MIND on your Life's Journey and LEARN as you go.

Nothing will be different unless...

   If you don't like what you are doing then stop doing it.

   If you don't like where you are then figure out where you want to be and what you will have to do to get there.

   If you want things to be different than do things differently.

  Because we all know that if you keep doing things the same way than nothing will be different. 

  If you know it's time for a change then it doesn't matter what time it is.

  Remember the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

   If you want a fresh start in your life then don't bring the crap that was stinking up your past, JUST FLUSH IT.

  Yesterday is already gone and tomorrow may never come but today is yours to ENJOY.

  If you want things to be different than do things differently.

  If you want PEACE OF MIND you have to take the painful experiences from your past and JUST FLUSH IT so PEACE OF MIND will have ROOM to get in.

  It's up to you to do something differently if you want things to be different.

Not until the storm passes will you know

   When a major storm is approaching you make the necessary preparations to be prepared to whether out the Storm.

   During the Hurricane season you have a list of things that you need to purchase to make sure you have the supplies you will need.

  But sometimes Storms come rolling in without warning and you just have to wait out the Storm.

  In our personal life we also go through Seasons and sometimes there are Storms that come rolling in that we aren't prepared for. 

  But remember that Just like the Stormy Weather shall pass so too will the Storms in your personal Life will pass.

   We may not like getting wet when it rains but we know that we need the rain. 

  We may not like change in our personal life but you may see that a change may do you good.

Mistakes are stepping stones

   Don't judge yourself or anyone else too harshly when they make a mistake.

  No one is perfect, we all make mistakes from time to time, we are all human.

   Mistakes are simply stepping stones to get you where you want to be.

   You can blame it on the moon if you want to, but you can't learn from your mistakes unless you admit that you made a mistake.

   But a mistake only happens once because if you repeat it then it is a habit that you need to break.

   You learn as you go through life and the lessons that you learn from mistakes are just growing pains.

  Every Life lesson you learn is just part of your Life's Journey.

  Mistakes are just stepping stones that are necessary to stay on track and keep you moving forward. 

  To ENJOY your Life's Journey you have to ENJOY LIFE while you are living it.

  Life is like a rollercoaster and there will be good days and bad days, that's just Life.

  ENJOY the ride!

Make up your mind and Just Do It

    Some DECISIONS you can easily make in JUST a split SECOND because there is nothing to THINK about.

    Some DECISIONS you have to THINK about what your actions would bring, to make sure you know what is best for you to do.

   And then there are some DECISIONS you will have to make that you have to JUST STOP and THINK about it Long and Hard before you decide.

   On your Life's Journey you will have to make many DECISIONS and there are consequences for every DECISION that you make.

   Your first DECISION has to be how much time you will need to make the best DECISION for yourself.

   If you like to wear only black clothes then you don't have to THINK about what color shirt you are going to choose.

   If you are choosing what to have for dinner you just need a minute to DECIDE what type of food you are in the mood for.

   But if you are DECIDING what is the best house for you, you need to STOP and THINK about it because you got to live there for quite a while.

  Now more than ever you really need to DECIDE what is best for you not let what anyone else THINKS you should do, DECIDE for you. 

   You know you BEST so obviously you KNOW what is BEST for you.

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

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

It's easy to be on your Best behavior when....

    It's easy to be positive when things are going in a positive direction.

   But how will you react to a negative situation?

   Remember when you are in a negative situation it is easy to be negative.

   But keep in mind that it is how you react to the negative situation that will determine if you will have a positive outcome or a negative outcome.

   It is not the negative situation that determines the outcome but how you react to it that determines the outcome.

  There will be obstacles that you will face on your Life's Journey, that's just Life.

    You will have to learn to go around them to keep moving.

   You may take a wrong turn and end up at a Dead end but you can turn around and go back and take a different direction.

  Things happen in Life both good and bad, that's just Life.

  Remember Anyone can make a mountain out of a mole Hill if they keep adding dirt.

  It's much easier to go around a mole Hill then it is to climb a mountain.

Once you know you want to let OTHERS know too

    Wisdom comes from experience not decades of LIVING.

   Wisdom comes from the experience of doing it not decades of excuses of why you shouldn't experience it.

   Wisdom to know that it is against the standards you have set for yourself is the only reason you need to not do it.

   Once you know something is negative you want to share your wisdom with OTHERS so they don't have to experience it.

    Unfortunately they don't always heed your warmings and they do it anyway and learn it the hard way from experience.

   Although your first reaction is to tell them I TOLD YOU SO, I hope you have the wisdom to be wise and don't say it.

   The Wise person knows that it is not important to let them know you were right.

   The right thing to do is to have the wisdom to know sometimes you shouldn't say anything at all.

  Like they say... You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink it.

  But when they get thirsty they will be thankful you shared your wisdom and showed them where they could get a drink.

The Bumpy road was the only way to get there

   Life is like a rollercoaster. It is full of ups and downs as well as twists and turns.

   Your Life's Journey is not a smooth road it is a bumpy road that is just part of your journey.

  Your darkest times brings you to the brightest places.

   What seems like the end of the road is just the discovery that you were meant to take a different path.

  Painful struggles grant us the most necessary growth

  Toxic people can teach us important lessons.

   Most heartbreaking losses of friendships can make ROOM for the most wonderful people.

   What seems like a curse can actually be a blessing.

  Sometimes in our personal life it takes a tornado to get us where we need to be and it was the only way to get us there.

  No matter how difficult things may seem at the moment, remember that this moment too shall pass it's just a bump in the road.

Don't let it clog you up

    If you don't want it then don't keep it. 

   Every now and again you have to go through your belongings and keep what you want and get rid of what you don't want. 

  Because If you don't do this every now and again you, will eventually have stuff crammed everywhere to the point you don't even know what you have.

  Just like you need to have spring cleaning in your house you also need to have spring cleaning in your mind.

   Take the negative experiences from your past and  JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so it can't keep hurting you over and over again.

  When a negative thought pops up trying to grab your attention you have to JUST FLUSH IT as it comes so it can't hurt you over and over again.

  JUST FLUSH IT.... it's the ONLY way...If you want PEACE OF MIND you gotta JUST FLUSH IT out of your mind so PEACE OF MIND has ROOM to get in.

Sometimes you shouldn't say anything at all

   Obviously HONESTY is the best policy but sometimes you HONESTLY need to not share your HONEST opinion.

   Being RIGHT is important but it is not always important to be RIGHT but it is always important to do the RIGHT thing.

   There is a time to SPEAK UP but there are also times when it is best to SHUT UP and not say anything at all.

   You may KNOW what you would do but you DON'T KNOW what is best for someone else to do.

  You may have EXPERIENCED it but someone else may EXPERIENCE something totally different. 

  What WORKS for you may NOT WORK for anyone else, just like what WORKS for someone else may NOT WORK for you.

  Your OPINION counts but sometimes you need to keep your OPINIONS to yourself because their OPINION is the only one that matters. 

  There are times when they just need you to LISTEN so they can figure it out on their own as they TALK about it.

  Like the song says...You have to know when to HOLD them, know when to FOLD them and know when to WALK away.

  Remember you have to know when you should SAY something and know when it is best to SHUT UP and not say anything at all.

Start a group so you can be surrounded by like-minded people

    If you like talking about motorcycles then you should join a group of people that likes motorcycles.

   If motorcycles are not your thing then you know you shouldn't join a motorcycle group.

   If you have a passion for cooking you might want to join a cooking club.

   But obviously if you don't like cooking you definitely probably won't enjoy going to a cooking club.

   If you can't find a group in your area that you would like to join perhaps you could start a group in your area.

   More than likely there are many people who like it as much as you do and they are looking for a group that does it so they can join.

  Whether your group decides to meet up once a week or once a month, it is nice to meet up and spend time doing what you like to do.

   Joining a group helps break up the monotony of your everyday routines.

  It adds a little Cheer to bring a smile to your face as it distracts you for a brief time.

  Starting a group or a hobby will make you a more relaxed pleasant person to be around.

Things can go wrong even when you do the right thing

    Just because you did everything that you thought was the right thing to do doesn't mean that everything is going to turn out right.

   You can do all the research to come up with a plan but that doesn't mean that everything will turn out as you had planned.

   Even though you thought it was the right thing to do doesn't mean that in the end you may realize that you should have done things differently.

  As long as you did what you thought you should do you will have no guilt or doubt that you did your best no matter how things turn out.

  And at the end of the day all that matters is that you know that you did what you thought was the best thing for you to do.

  No matter what happens you can be proud of yourself for doing what you thought was the best thing to do.

  If you don't want any regrets make sure you don't do anything before you stop and think about it to make sure you won't regret it if things don't turn out right.
