Today as I was dealing with people and getting annoyed yet again ….I started to think is it them or is it me?? Sometimes people seem to get under your skin and you think that it is them but sometimes it is you that might need the attitude adjustment. We deal with so many personalities in our lives and we try to make it work though once in a while it does not work and you might want to shake the person as they might want to do to you !! So here I am at the crossroad where I think it might be time to ask the question is it you or is it me???? “As you go about your daily life, you will encounter many lemons. Sour expressions, sour attitudes, sour auras! The good thing is that if you don’t want to be a lemon, you don’t have to be! Just don’t let those lemons rub themselves all over you! And you don’t even have to save them! Let lemons be lemons! One of the most important things that I have ever learned, is that I don’t have to save people.” ― C. JoyBell C.
Your mind is a very strong tool. I have been talking to some professionals who work with hospice and they have told me someone can actually will themselves to stay alive! I had thought that sounds crazy but I think back to my cousin who passed away over 20 years ago and she I believe stayed alive to see her son. The doctors gave her a few hours at the end and she waited for her son to come and see her so she could tell him to watch his brother and then she died. I know someone who the doctors keep saying he should be dead but he hangs on because he does not want to die. I also think your mind can take you places in life and show you what you want to see in people and places which is only what you want to see. Some people who have been in terrifying conditions have blocked themselves in their minds so that no longer were at the site but somewhere else if only in their minds! So in thinking about this phenomenon this can be life saving or something that makes you see false realities. I think just like anything else as long as you know the truth it can be a good thing!!! The mind is everything. What you think you become. Buddha
Sometimes it just does stink. I was talking to a friend of mine who is in a situation that does not seem like it will have a happy ending. We both were trying to say maybe it will get better, hopefully time will heal and then all of sudden she said “honestly it just stinks!” I thought to myself in some situations you try to make the best of it you try to think it will get better and you do not want to be negative but sometimes in some situations you need just sit back and say ….. It just stinks Every bad situation is a blues song waiting to happen. Amy Winehouse
The elusive road to happiness…. I sometimes wonder about happiness. I had a friend recently who said she was not sure if she ever truly was happy. I was speaking to someone today about happiness and I started to wonder what exactly is “happiness” and how do you achieve it. You think that is an easy question to answer but you need to think what is happiness to you and how much happiness do we need??? I think happiness is in the eye of the beholder. Each person has their own kind of happy. You can make any day happy with the smallest details. Sometimes when you look over the rainbow you will look back and see it is not that bad on this side! Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be. Abraham Lincoln
