When it is gone it's gone

    You won't ENJOY the gentle breeze if you don't slow down so you can feel it.

   You won't get to see the beauty of a flower when it blooms if you don't stop long enough to ENJOY it before it withers away.

   You won't notice let alone ENJOY the little things in life if you only look for the big things that may or may not come your way.

   You can't wait to ENJOY your children because before you know it they will be grown ups.

   You can't put off doing something when you are younger that you won't be able to do physically when you are old.

   If you have something to say to those around you then say it because you don't want to miss your opportunity to say it because there is no guarantee that tomorrow will come.

   Slow down so you can ENJOY the gentle breeze while it is blowing.

   Stop and smell the flowers while they are in bloom.

    You can only ENJOY the laughter of a child when they are still children.

   To ENJOY LIFE you have to slow down so you can ENJOY it while you are living it.

Pay attention to your GUT

     Your GUT INSTINCTS are trying to WARN you about something.

     Your GUT INSTINCTS are your BUILT-IN WARNING system trying to GRAB YOUR ATTENTION to WARN you.

    When you feel your GUT gargling it DOESN'T always mean you have GAS.

    When you are about to do something and your GUT starts TUMBLING you need to STOP and THINK before you do it.

    At the end of the day you don't want to say I had a FEELING that I shouldn't do it but I IGNORED the FEELING.

   MISTAKES happen but is it a MISTAKE that could have been AVOIDED?

   IF you pay attention to your GUT you will be able to AVOID the DANGER if you HEED the WARNINGS.

You get used to your surroundings so surround yourself with positivity

    If it is the ONLY way you had ever done it then it is NORMAL for you to do.

   If you live in a state that it always SNOWS then you will learn how to DRIVE in SNOWY weather.

   If you live in a state that NEVER SNOWS you might not know how to safely DRIVE in the SNOW.

   If you surround yourself with NEGATIVITY then you will have a NEGATIVE outlook.

   If you surround yourself with POSITIVITY then you will  have a POSITIVE outlook.

    If you surround yourself with people who INSPIRE you then you will feel INSPIRED.

    If you surround yourself with people who have nothing POSITIVE to say then you will only hear NEGATIVITY.

   It is BETTER to SWIM alone in the ocean then to be surrounded by SHARKS.

   CHOOSING who to surround yourself with is CHOOSING who you want to be.

Have you ever met a Bee that could outsmart you?

    About a Decade ago I couldn't get past a BEE that was guarding my front door.

   He would fly off the porch and I would think I could finally go on the porch and go inside.

   Then before I could grip the door handle, he would come out of nowhere and I would retreat as I screamed back out to the front yard.

   I didn't want to open the door and take a chance that he would fly inside and take over where I could go inside too.

   Here I find myself again a Decade later being controlled and told what to do by a BEE.

   I wandered whether it was possibly the same BEE but I Looked up the lifespan of a BEE, so I knew it definitely wasn't.

   Turns out that I am JUST LUCKY to get to have ANOTHER encounter with a BEE who was ENJOYING how easily he could stop a giant human.

   But this Time I decided to show the BEE that I had made a plan a decade ago, in case it ever happened again, that I would just walk around to the side door and go inside.

   And after I went inside I looked out the front window on the porch and let him see me LAUGHING from INSIDE my house.

Will it be TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT?

    Don't turn a TEMPORARY SETBACK into a PERMANENT SETBACK.

   When you are facing a NEGATIVE MOMENT don't turn it into a PERMANENT LIFETIME PROBLEM.

   How you REACT to the CIRCUMSTANCES that you must face will DETERMINE whether you have a POSITIVE OUTCOME or a NEGATIVE OUTCOME.

   STOP and THINK about what your REACTION will BRING because ONCE YOU REACT you CAN'T TAKE IT BACK.

   You will have to LIVE with the CONSEQUENCES that your ACTIONS will BRING.

   Don't let a TEMPORARY FIX to the TEMPORARY PROBLEM that you are facing be something that you will have a LIFETIME OF REGRET DOING.

   Your CHARACTER is not JUDGED by how you REACT when TIMES are GOOD but your CHARACTER is BASED on what you do when TIMES ARE TOUGH.

   Anyone can turn a MOLE HILL into a MOUNTAIN if they keep ADDING DIRT. 

  It's EASIER to STEP OVER a MOLE HILL than it is to CLIMB A MOUNTAIN.

   Life is HARD ENOUGH without you making it HARDER ON YOURSELF.

You may not be able to FIX it but you definitely can make sure you don't make it WORSE

    You may not have the SOLUTION to their problem but you can make sure you don't cause them anymore PROBLEMS.

    You may not know the ANSWERS to their QUESTIONS but you can make them feel HEARD.

    You may not UNDERSTAND what they are going through but you can ACKNOWLEDGE what they are going through.

    You may not know what to SAY to HELP but you can take the time to LISTEN to them and that will HELP.

   They are not EXPECTING you to FIX their PROBLEMS but they are HOPING that you CARE enough to LISTEN to them.

   If you LISTEN to them it will give them a chance to JUST FLUSH IT out of their minds so PEACE OF MIND will have ROOM to get in.

   If you take the time to LISTEN, it will give them a chance to FIGURE out what they need to do for themselves as they SAY it OUT LOUD.

    All they may need is someone to take the time to LISTEN so they can CLEAR their mind so they can think MORE CLEARLY to FIGURE out what THEY NEED to do to FIX IT.

   Will you give them a MOMENT of your time?

Since prices on groceries are rising you got to UP YOUR GAME

    Grocery prices started rising during the pandemic but now the pandemic is over but PRICE GOUGING is apparently here to stay.

   At first they said it was because of the pandemic but now they won't say that it is because they can GET AWAY WITH IT. 

   Unfortunately we all have to ACCEPT that the prices are not going down so we have to get CREATIVE to be able to AFFORD to eat.

   Luckily being CREATIVITY is fun especially if you make it an EASTER EGG HUNT to find a bargain price.

   I get excited to find items on sale especially when I get something BOGO.

   But PLEASE CHECK THE EXPIRATION DATES.

   It isn't a BARGAIN PRICE if it EXPIRES before you can eat it. 

   There are many things in Life that you have NO CONTROL OVER like the HIGH PRICES of groceries but you are IN CONTROL of how CREATIVE you are to find a BARGAIN PRICE.

  With a little bit of a IMAGINATION and some CREATIVITY and PLANNING you can keep your COST for FOOD down to earth.

STRESSING ABOUT IT WON'T PREVENT IT but you can PREVENT yourself from STRESSING ABOUT IT

    STRESSING about it WON'T PREVENT IT from HAPPENING so DON'T STRESS about it.

    STRESSING about it JUST IN CASE it HAPPENS is UNNECESSARY STRESS that DOES REAL DAMAGE, that is just UNNECESSARY.

   Your THOUGHTS are the REALITY YOU LIVE whether it is TRUE REALITY OR NOT.

    HOW YOU LOOK at IT determines what YOU SEE and what YOU SEE determines what you THINK about IT.

    DON'T LOSE FOCUS STRESSING over things UNNECESSARILY,  just FOCUS on WHAT IS HAPPENING so you can ENJOY IT.

  You CAN'T LIVE the PRESENT MOMENT you are in UNLESS YOU FOCUS ON the PRESENT MOMENT not WASTE IT STRESSING about a MOMENT that MAY OR MAY NOT HAPPEN TOMORROW.

  You CAN'T LIVE the PRESENT MOMENT you are in UNLESS YOU FOCUS ON the PRESENT MOMENT not WASTE IT STRESSING about a MOMENT FROM YOUR PAST.

   YESTERDAY is already GONE and TOMORROW may NEVER COME, but TODAY is YOURS TO ENJOY.

   If you want to ENJOY LIFE you have to ENJOY THE MOMENTS while you are LIVING THEM.

If you KNOW there COULD be a TRAFFIC JAM then make sure you LEAVE A LITTLE EARLIER then.

    Have you ever heard someone say I KNEW that I would get STUCK in a TRAFFIC JAM and BE LATE.

   You LOOK at them and say then WHY didn't you LEAVE Earlier then so you WOULDN'T BE LATE?

   How MANY TIMES have you YOURSELF said....I KNEW THAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AFTER IT HAPPENS?

   IF you KNOW that TROUBLE is COMING then GET OUT OF THE WAY, IT'S SIMPLE JUST GET OUT OF IT'S WAY.

   You have to HOPE FOR THE BEST but JUST IN CASE you have to PREPARE yourself if you KNOW it's POSSIBLE that things won't go exactly as you had PLANNED.

   And if you want to MAKE SURE you are going to arrive ON TIME you have to leave EARLY in case there is a TRAFFIC JAM, that's JUST LIFE.

   You won't be ANGRY if you ARRIVE five minutes EARLY but you will be ANGRY if you ARRIVE five minutes LATE.

WHAT If you COULD, WOULD YOU?

     What if.... you COULD make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE in the WORLD, WOULD YOU?

    What if.... you COULD HELP someone in a POSITIVE WAY, WOULD YOU?

    What if.... you COULD EASE the STRESS for someone so they COULD make room for PEACE OF MIND, WOULD YOU?

    What if.... you COULD SAY something that COULD ENCOURAGE someone, WOULD YOU?

    What if.... you COULD, WOULD YOU? YOU SHOULD.

    What you DO is up to you but remember that YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

    SO plant SEEDS of KINDNESS so KINDNESS will GROW.

It wasn't FORGOTTEN it was just BURIED TREASURE waiting for you to REMEMBER

    You can't REMEMBER everything so some of our MEMORIES get SHRUNKEN  and BURIED to MAKE ROOM for MORE MEMORIES.

    But when a BURIED MEMORY gets TRIGGERED it SWELLS to LIFE SIZE to REVEAL ITSELF for you to RELIVE.

   A BURIED MEMORY can be TRIGGERED by a SIGHT, a SMELL, a SOUND, a CONVERSATION you just never know what memories will POP UP.

   When I HEAR a SONG from my TEENAGE YEARS I can suddenly vividly RELIVE ONE OF THE MEMORIES you LIVED ENJOYING that SONG when you were a TEENAGER.

   When I look at OLD PICTURES I suddenly get TRANSPORTED BACK IN TIME and I get to ENJOY that MOMENT AGAIN in MY MIND.

   But there is ALWAYS A YING AND A YANG to EVERYTHING.

    Some THINGS can TRIGGER NEGATIVE MEMORIES that you DON'T WANT TO RELIVE.

   SO GET AWAY and  STAY AWAY from NEGATIVE TRIGGERS so they CAN'T TRIGGER YOU.

  ALWAYS SURROUND YOURSELF with ONLY THINGS AND PEOPLE THAT TRIGGERS POSITIVE MEMORIES and POSITIVE THOUGHTS and POSITIVE VIBES. 

      LEARN what TRIGGERS you and CHOOSE.

Before it was actually successful it was just someone's dream

   Every IDEA is at first just a THOUGHT.

   What if the IDEA was not followed by any ACTIONS?

   Well obviously if the ACTIONS that are needed to make it SUCCESSFUL isn't done then it can't possibly be SUCCESSFUL.

   If you WANT it then you have to be WILLING to put in the EFFORT it will take to be SUCCESSFUL.

   Those who GIVE UP and say it CAN'T BE DONE definitely WILL NOT be the ONE WHO DOES it because they WON'T DO what it takes to GET 'R DONE.

   Every SUCCESSFUL PRODUCT starts out as just a THOUGHT that is then followed by ACTIONS.

You don't have to have EVERYTHING to APPRECIATE what YOU DO have

    You can't APPRECIATE what YOU GOT unless YOU ACKNOWLEDGE what YOU DO have. 

    Do you see the glass as HALF FULL or HALF EMPTY?

    Are you THANKFUL for what YOU GOT or are you angry because you don't have EVERYTHING that you ever wanted?

    You may have to FIX the roof on your house but you SHOULD be THANKFUL that you have a HOUSE to FIX because some people don't.

    You may have to buy NEW TIRES for your CAR but you have to be THANKFUL that you have a CAR because some people don't.

   You may have CHALLENGES to face on your  LIFE'S JOURNEY but you have to be THANKFUL that you are ALIVE to be able to face them.

    LIFE is a ROLLERCOASTER and ROLLERCOASTERS are full of UPS AND DOWNS as well as TWISTS AND TURNS, that's JUST LIFE.

   And if you want to ENJOY LIFE  you have to ENJOY IT WHILE you are LIVING IT.

   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.

Do you know what is in your drawers?

   Oh my, what a surprise it was when we went through some of the drawers in our house.

   Some things that we found we suddenly vividly remembered the day we bought it.

   Yet there were some things that we could not remember getting at all.

   We started out just curious what was in the drawers of a cabinet we had.

   It became instantly clear that we probably had many things in our closets, cabinets and drawers that we had forgotten about.

   Only about Ten percent of it could we just toss away and about thirty percent of it we wanted to keep.

   Now we have to figure out what to do with the other sixty percent of THINGS that we don't need or want at all.

  Do you have drawers that you have no idea what you have in them?

   When you get bored one day pick a room and look inside one of your drawers and see what is inside.

   We had a lot of trips down memory lane as we went through the drawers.

  And we also had many good BELLY LAUGHS as we saw what we had tucked away inside the drawers. 

   We all do spring cleaning in our homes on a regular basis, but what we have stuffed out of sight in the drawers can stay hidden for decades.

  Unless you look in your drawers you don't know whether there is junk in the drawer or buried treasure.

Do you want PEACE OF MIND?

    If you want PEACE OF MIND you have to MAKE ROOM for it to get in.

   So take the time to ACKNOWLEDGE your thoughts and learn what you NEED TO from them then.... JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND to make ROOM for PEACE OF MIND.

   Take the THOUGHTS of WORRYING about ANYTHING that you have NO CONTROL OVER and JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND to make ROOM for PEACE OF MIND.

   Take ANY STRESSFUL THOUGHTS about things that MAY OR MAY NOT HAPPEN and JUST FLUSH IT OUT OF YOUR MIND to make ROOM for PEACE OF MIND to get in.

   Our MINDS have an ENDLESS STREAM of THOUGHTS but as long as you DON'T let it GRAB YOUR ATTENTION it doesn't take up ANY ROOM so PEACE OF MIND has ROOM to get in.

   You can't STOP the STREAM OF THOUGHTS from coming up but YOU CAN CHOOSE which THOUGHTS you let GRAB YOUR ATTENTION.

   You CHOOSE WHICH THOUGHTS you will CHOOSE to THINK ABOUT. 

   AND you also CHOOSE WHICH THOUGHTS you will FLUSH OUT OF YOUR MIND.

   PEACE OF MIND IS JUST A FLUSH AWAY, SO JUST FLUSH IT SO PEACE OF MIND HAS ROOM TO GET IN.

If it is TOO MUCH then DIVIDE it into SMALLER SIZES

    When you become OVERWHELMED you become IMMOBILIZED.

    When you are OVERWHELMED you can't SEE HOW TO get it done.

   SO if 100% is MORE than you can do then DO 50% So you will have HALF AS MUCH to do because HALF OF IT is already DONE.

   If you have MORE than you can do AT ONE TIME then PLAN on doing PART OF IT AT A TIME so you won't become OVERWHELMED and GET NOTHING DONE.

   DON'T set yourself up for FAILURE by being UNREALISTIC about what you can REALISTICALLY DO.

   When something that you want to BUY is more than you can AFFORD on your BUDGET, then make a BUDGET that includes SAVING up to BUY IT.

   You may NOT be able to do it ALL AT ONCE but YOU CAN DO IT, you just have to do it ONE STEP AT A TIME.

   YOU CAN ONLY DO WHAT YOU CAN DO.

   BUT YOU CAN DO ANYTHING you want to do, ALTHOUGH it may take DOING IT LITTLE BY LITTLE so it is DOABLE FOR YOU TO DO.

   EVERY STEP YOU DO is ONE STEP closer to GETTING IT DONE.

It may come your way but you still have to GRAB IT

    OPPORTUNITIES are FEW and FAR BETWEEN in Life so make the most of the OPPORTUNITIES when they do come your way.

   Keep in mind that OPPORTUNITIES are NEVER LOST they are just TAKEN BY SOMEONE ELSE.

   You also have to remember that you CAN'T WAIT for the PERFECT OPPORTUNITY because NOTHING IS PERFECT.

   When OPPORTUNITY knocks at your door you have to OPEN THE DOOR to see what OPPORTUNITY YOU HAVE an OPPORTUNITY AT.

   You may NOT get an OPPORTUNITY but you CAN MAKE an OPPORTUNITY for yourself if you TRY.

   DON'T miss ANY OPPORTUNITY TO BE THE BEST YOU THAT YOU CAN BE so you will have the OPPORTUNITY to be the BEST YOU THAT YOU CAN BE. 

   GET UP and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN because it isn't going to FALL INTO YOUR LAP.

    LIFE is WHAT YOU MAKE IT.

How you CHOOSE to LOOK AT IT determines what you SEE

    If you only buy yourself BLUE colored CLOTHING then your WARDROBE will be full of BLUE CLOTHES.

   If you want to wear OTHER COLORS of CLOTHING then you will HAVE TO look at OTHER COLORS of CLOTHING.

   If you ONLY SEE the NEGATIVE PARTS of your day then you WON'T SEE the POSITIVE MOMENTS you had TODAY.

   IF you are always LOOKING for TROUBLE then you will ALWAYS FIND YOURSELF IN TROUBLE.

   Because LIFE IS all in HOW YOU LOOK AT IT and your POINT OF VIEW is the only VIEW that you CAN SEE.

   If you DON'T like the DIRECTION that your LIFE IS GOING then STOP AND CHANGE the DIRECTION that you ARE GOING.

   You have to be HONEST WITH YOURSELF even though the TRUTH MAY HURT, it's just GROWING PAINS.

   You CAN'T LEARN from your MISTAKES unless you first ADMIT that you MADE A MISTAKE.

   LIFE is what you MAKE OF IT, so MAKE 2024 YOUR BEST YEAR EVER!

You can MANIFEST IT so be careful what you are MANIFESTING

     If you are always EXPECTING the worst that CAN HAPPEN in every situation then every ACTION you make WON'T ALLOW anything GOOD TO HAPPEN.

   If you don't SEE a way to have a POSITIVE OUTCOME then you WON'T SEE what ACTIONS to take so that you can have a POSITIVE OUTCOME.

   Your THOUGHTS are the REALITY that you will LIVE IN whether it is the TRUE REALITY you WOULD have HAD to LIVE IN OR NOT.

   If you DON'T THINK YOU CAN DO IT then you WON'T DO IT because you will NEVER TRY TO DO IT.

   You can EITHER be your WORST ENEMY or your BIGGEST CHEERLEADER, IT'S UP TO YOU.

   BE LIKE the LITTLE ENGINE WHO COULD that CHANTED I THINK I CAN all the way to the TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN.

   YOU CAN AS LONG AS YOU THINK YOU CAN!

   YOU CAN DO IT, YES YOU CAN!

It looks like MY MONDAYS seem to always have....

    There is always MORE THINGS then I could possibly even have time to do every MONDAY.

   I have been doing things one by one that were on MY MONDAY TO DO LIST of THINGS that I NEEDED to get done by TODAY.

   But I don't think there was even the SLIGHTEST CHANCE that I could do everything on MY MONDAY TO DO LIST.

   So I am sitting here trying to figure out WHY I would make MY MONDAY TO DO LIST so long that it isn't even HUMANLY POSSIBLE to do in ONE DAY.

   When I look at what is STILL left on MY MONDAY TO DO LIST, I realized that it will take me ALL DAY TOMORROW to complete everything on the list.

   So I OBVIOUSLY need to be REALISTIC when I make any TO DO LIST for myself so I don't set myself up for failure.

   And I need to STOP putting off UNTIL TOMORROW on what I SHOULD do EACH DAY because eventually TOMORROW becomes MONDAY.

What can you do in just FIVE MINUTES?

    Have you ever said you couldn't do it because you don't have time?

   Even though it would only take you THIRTY MINUTES to do you convince yourself that you don't have THIRTY MINUTES to spare.

  So Why don't you divide that job into SIX JOBS you could do in FIVE MINUTES time.

   We all know that no matter how BUSY we are we can easily find FIVE MINUTES to spare, right?

   COULD YOU, or should I say WOULD YOU COMMIT to do SOME PART of it FIVE MINUTES at a time?

   You would be surprised just how much you can do in FIVE MINUTES.

   Seriously you need to set a timer on your phone for FIVE MINUTES and get up and see what you can actually do in FIVE MINUTES.

   In FIVE MINUTES you can STRAIGHTEN UP any ROOM of your house and SEE the difference that it makes in that ROOM, even though you still have a lot more that NEEDS done in that ROOM.

   It not only LOOKS BETTER it also makes you FEEL BETTER MENTALLY.

   It SETS a RELAXING PEACEFUL MOOD for how you FEEL when you are in that ROOM.

   It won't cost you ANYTHING, YOU just have to COMMIT to spending FIVE MINUTES of your time.

   Could you imagine what you could do after you spend a FEW FIVE Minute Intervals of your time?

   What if you spent FIVE MINUTES A DAY for the next WEEK, could you imagine what you could get done?

   And What if you spent FIVE MINUTES A MONTH all year, could you imagine what you could get done in 2024? 

   TRY IT, Set your timer and you will be SURPRISED when you SEE what you ACTUALLY can do in just FIVE MINUTES of your time.

What feeling does the word ZEN evoke for you?

    I can still FEEL the emotions that the old commercials for CALGON brought on.

   I can still ENVISION their MEANING of an average person having  CALGON MOMENTS in their EVERYDAY LIVES.

   It doesn't necessarily mean BIG STRESSFUL moments happening ALL AT ONCE either.

    It just takes multiple MINI STRESSFUL moments SIMULTANEOUSLY happening to make it FEEL like a CALGON MOMENT.

   Unfortunately you don't always have TIME to take a CALGON BATH.

   But when you are having a "CALGON MOMENT" in your Life just grab your "TOOLBOX" of TOOLS to use to DISTRACT yourself so you can RELAX.

   That is why I BLOG to help you whenever you NEED  CALGON RELIEF anytime  or anyplace you NEED ONE.

  YOU can STOP by and have a MOMENT TO RELAX while you PONDER my MINI BLOG for some CALGON RELIEF.

   I DISCOVERED a GAME on my phone yesterday that I am adding to my "TOOLBOX" of TOOLS to PLAY to help me if I need it to have some CALGON RELIEF. 

  In case you want to add it to your "TOOLBOX" It's called ZEN WORD.

  At the beginning when you turn on the GAME it gives you an ENCOURAGING MESSAGE of PEACE OF MIND.

  I found myself turning it on and off over and over again to ENJOY their PEACEFUL MESSAGE each time.

   The more TOOLS IN YOUR TOOLBOX the more PEACEFUL MOMENTS YOU can have on your LIFE JOURNEY.

   LIFE IS LIFE, BUT YOUR LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT with the TOOLS YOU USE TO LIVE IT.

  ENJOY LIFE WHILE YOU ARE LIVING IT.

   WE ARE ALL CARPENTERS.

Today is the FIRST DAY OF THE NEW YEAR that we start making EVERYDAY the BEST DAY EVER

    Happy New Year everyone.

   Remember, Yesterday is already gone and tomorrow may never come but TODAY IS YOURS TO ENJOY.

   You only have the TIME you have so ENJOY EVERY SECOND OF IT.

   It's a NEW YEAR and you have a FRESH START to make EVERYDAY your BEST DAY EVER.

   What did you do TODAY that you did for yourself or for someone else that you ENJOYED doing?

   My NEW YEARS RESOLUTION is as I am preparing to fall asleep, to take a MOMENT at the END OF EACH DAY to REFLECT on EVERYTHING that happened THAT DAY 

   I will have to ACKNOWLEDGE both the GOOD and the BAD MOMENTS, as well as be HONEST WITH MYSELF about the things I could have done better.

   Luckily I will be TALKING TO ONLY MYSELF so I can be TOTALLY HONEST WITH MYSELF.

   I will START by listing all the things that I am THANKFUL for.

   And even on a Day when I have to face many CHALLENGES I will remind myself how LUCKY  i am that I was ALIVE to face them.

   Perhaps you too could make one of your NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS to REFLECT AT THE END OF THE DAY to HELP YOU ADJUST whatever you NEED TO do so you can make 2024 your BEST YEAR EVER. 

   You have to ACKNOWLEDGE TRUTHFULLY WHAT IT IS to know THE TRUTH about what NEEDS ADJUSTING
