So…what is it that allows us to go ahead and do something that we think “might” be “wrong”?  Or what about doing something when we “KNOW” that it is “wrong”?  Tough question, huh?  The truth is,  we all do things that we think might be wrong.  Many of us do things that we know are wrong…

Well…just how bad are the wrongs that we do?  Some things, certainly, don’t “matter” as much as other things, right?  And what do we say to ourselves, EXACTLY, that makes it seem “okay” for us to go ahead and do something that we “think” or “KNOW” is wrong?

Wow…not real sure how we got here…but “let’s roll”( another 9/11 tribute )…

HERE I GO…AGAIN…with this notion that…”LIFE IS NOT FAIR”…for ANYONE!!!  Is it, perhaps, the unfairness of life that allows us to cross over that line and actually do something “wrong”?  “This” or “that” is NOT FAIR, so I am allowed…entitled…to do wrong.  Somebody owes you something for whatever reason…

This is so bothersome to me, folks.  I, truly, believe this is much of the problem our country faces today.  People feeling that they are owed something from others, instead of desiring to “give” TO others.

First of all, I will try to say this as nicely as possible, but…aside from money or moral obligations…NOBODY OWES ANYBODY… ANYTHING- especially as a “pay-back ” for wrong-doing by others.!!!  I feel for the pain of ALL individuals who have suffered, needlessly.  As people, we are still “LEARNING”.  LIVING…AND…LEARNING according to whatever “rules” we abide by, individually.  And remember…shhhh…”some people are slow learners”.  😉

Those of us living today had nothing to do with the “wrongs” committed many, many years ago.  Please allow the “healing” to occur by moving forward and taking advantage of today’s opportunities to be the best that you can be.  Set your goals HIGH, but try to reach  even HIGHER.  We can all move forward, together.  As equals.  The opportunities are endless.  Do not allow anger or hatred to deny you those opportunities.  Where there is a will…THERE IS A WAY.  It’s up to all of us to find those ways.  Individually…and as a team…TOGETHER!!!

“Giving” can include so many different things, such as time, things,  or money(EVERYTHING, somehow, involves the giving of money).  Time is money, right?  Things cost money, right?  And well, MONEY IS MONEY, right?  Money/WEALTH…a requirement for many things “good,” but the source of evil, as well.

We are now getting back to the reality that everything in life has both good and bad consequences depending on intentions and/or outcomes.  EVERYTHING must be weighed very carefully by each individual.  This is America.  You are still able to make many”choices” regarding your life.  Choose wisely.  EVERYTHING AFFECTS EVERYTHING.



Sunday, 12/22/13……….9:10 pm……….

The excitement is growing.  Christmas is coming.  Our special day to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior.  December 25th.  Two days of work, filled with excitement and anticipation between “now” and “then”.  My poor husband is so, so “CRAZY” busy during the holidays as a wine sales rep.  Both kids are enjoying Christmas break from High School.  And then there’s me…working right up to the “wire,” totally enjoying this frenzied, hurry-up, chaotic rush to the “finish line” for “Christ”mas.

So, so much to do.  The excitement is palpable.  Somehow, the mood “feels” different at work leading up to “the day”.  Perhaps I am the only one feeling this “excitement” in my heart, but it always seems to capture everyone at about this time of year…EVERY YEAR.  That is how I perceive it.  The happiness, or “JOY” ( “to the world” ) is palpable…TO ME.

There are always those “Scrooges,” of course.  And I am sure that you “Scrooges” out there KNOW exactly who you are.  What are your “issues”?  Why begrudge someone else’s excitement?  Scrooge or not, if Christmas is not a day that you choose to celebrate, then you have that “right,” here in America, NOT to celebrate.  Perhaps you can simply enjoy a day off work.   Why not try to enjoy the “calmness” of this day when most days are full of frenzied chaos?  Please try to find the “positive,” which surely exists, surrounding this holiday.  “LOOK”…and you shall “FIND”.

I hope you all enjoy what’s left of our “prep time” for Christmas. Enjoy.  Enjoy.  Enjoy.  This is going to be a truly special Christmas for our family…”GIVING” to those in need.  I am not real sure as to how much I will disclose, but “numberoneteam.net” is truly my mission.  People Helping People.  Choosing to give the best of yourself daily to contribute to your teams’ success.  Living life, folks.  Surviving life.  ENJOYING LIFE by helping others to survive it.

“GIVING” is truly better than receiving.

God Bless America.  Amen.
