DEFINING WHO YOU WANT TO BE…

Choosing from opposites = Positive or negative?  Happy or sad?  Glad or mad?  Good or bad?  You’re choosing how to present yourself  from completely “different” categories…Yes or no.  PLEASE STOP!!!

Why not choose from a similar” category?  Positive or neutral?  Happy or glad.  Good or okay?  Up or climbing.  Accept or tolerate.  WOW!!!  This could be a “GAME CHANGER,” couldn’t it?  Program yourself to only allow positive or neutral thought choices.  This is difficult… TO BEGIN WITH.  It does get easier with repeated practice.  Been there.  Still practicing that!!!

Please realize that your tendencies say a whole lot about “who” you are.  Do you respect others?  Do you trust others?  I encourage you to search for those answers within yourself.  Be honest.  Totally honest…with yourself.  It is easy to choose what you know is the “right” answer, but if you chose the “right” answer… IS IT THE CORRECT ANSWER …for “YOU”?  Pretty deep, huh?  We, of course, ALL want to treat others with respect, but do we?  We ALL want to trust others, but do we?

This is kind of “silly,” but I want to say that most people will be able to answer those questions correctly regarding people they know.  “OTHER PEOPLE”.  They will not, however be able to answer correctly regarding themselves.  We, as people, do not recognize our own shortcomings.  Repeating the same negative behaviors over and over yields the same negative results.  Positive responses will yield positive results…MOST OF THE TIME!!  😉

Life is difficult.  For EVERYBODY.  EVERYWHERE!!!  “Crap” gets added to our plates DAILY.  How you deal with “IT” will leave a distinct “odor” in everyone’s mind, representing their impression of you!!!  HA!!!  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!  “THINK ABOUT IT!!!” ( a tribute to my brother, Bob)  🙂

GIVE THE BEST OF YOURSELF FOR “JUST” TODAY…”EVERY” DAY!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

 

 

BACK TO THE BASICS…

“PLEASE”…and…”THANK-YOU”!!!  🙂

They’re called the “MAGIC WORDS,” right?  Hhhmmm.  “Do you believe in magic?” (that’s a song…from awhile ago 🙂  Okay, they may not be considered “magic” words, but I truly believe that:  KINDNESS IS CONTAGEOUS!!!  It really is, folks.

I’ve used this tactic… “SUCCESSFULLY”.  This is what I have referred to as:  “KILL ‘EM WITH KINDNESS”.  It really, Really, REALLY…WORKS!!!  I get such a thrill out of cheering up “crabby patties”.  These are those individuals who are a bit “grumpy” ALL THE TIME!!!  (Ssshhh…you’re already thinking of  someone specific, aren’t you?)  HA!!!  DOUBLE HA, HA!!! 

LIFE is GOOD, folks.  And GOD is GREAT!!!  I, FINALLY, hitched a ride on the “FREEDOM TRAIN”!!!  OMG!!!  I am not kidding, folks.  I am currently in week #5 of a Bible Study course at church.  It is titled “Breaking Free” by Beth Moore.  Oh, yes!!!  I AM ON THAT FREEDOM TRAIN!!!  BREAKING FREE!!!”  AMEN, JESUS!!!  ( Yep, I am actually preaching…in my mind…with loud, passionate “thoughts” as I type this on the computer right now!!!)  HALLELUJAH!!!  Perhaps I will share more with you later about my personal experience in this Bible Study.  It’s been truly AMAZING, folks.  AMAZING GRACE!!!

I challenge each of us to go out there and try to give the best of ourselves for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day.  And try.  “JUST TRY” to “MAKE” a CRABBY PATTY smile today… EVERY day!!!

LIFE IS DIFFICULT…FOR EVERYONE.  EVERY DAY!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
