TAKE THE TIME TO LAUGH.....AN UNCERTAIN MOMENT......DON'T LET ONE NEGATIVE EVENT DEFINE YOUR RELATIONSHP....GO HAVE FUN....

AN UNCERTAIN MOMENT…
We all have those moments in life where we simply don’t know what the future holds in some area or areas of our lives….Those moments of watiting to see how it all turns out. Those moments can be some of the hardest….those waiting moments…
When we go thorugh a time of waiting it can often be some of the most difficult times we go thorugh….but it is also some of the biggest growth periods of time we can go through as well….Waiting pushes us to reflect upon who we are….Uncertainty pushes us to reflect upon who we are…..Simply put, when we have to wait on something that usually has a negative component to it we simply can feel like it takes all the happiness out of those moments…
When one is going through times of uncertainty the best way to handle those raw emotions is to simply put it all in the hands of God The Creator of all that is good….Simply let go and let God and wait it out however long it takes….
When we give most situations the time it needs to work out we can rest assured that God Almighty has the situation in His hands and we will survive and then thrive again in life.
DON’T LET ONE NEGATIVE EVENT DEFINE YOUR RELATIONSHIP….
I see people ruin a relationship over one event….Yes, it may have been a major event….a negative one….and yet often people forget about all the positive events or positive major events that has taken place in the relationship? Don’t those count too?
One negative event should not define a relationship…..A relationship is about more than one event if it has been built over time……Forgiveness is an important aspect of any relationship and determining if the relationship is worth saving in spite of the error that was made. Some relationships of course should be let go….depending on what happened..
Simply looking at the relationship and deciding if it is worth saving even with the error made is key to all healthy long lasting relationships……Holding on to what is wonderful is sometimes one of the best things we can do even when that wonderful has imperfections….
GO OUT AND HAVE FUN….
There are times that we simply have to stop what we are doing and get up, go out, and have fun…..Fun is an important part of life…..Fun does not necessarily have a starting point or a finish line….Sometimes fun is simply what it is…..FUN…
Taking time away from what we are doing can be a good thing when done in the right ways and the right times….Giving ourselves the room to go out and enjoy our lives without a defined goal for the moment can be one of the best ways to create the life of one’s dreams…
WHY ARE YOU DOING A WHOLE LOT OF WHAT YOU DON’T WANT TO DO?
I think some people simply do not know why they do what they do but they do it anyways….They sort of walk around like a zombie doing the same things over and over without much thought attached to why they are doing it…..Yes, we are all creatures of habit and that can be a good thing….Not all things do we need to think too hard on….and yet there are times that we need to look a little closer at our lives and ask “Why are we doing what we do….?”
When we ask that question we often come up with a blank stare from ourselves because we simply don’t have the answer….When we do have the answer we often find out that what we are doing is not as fullfilling as we had hoped it to be….and other times we simply are glad that we are doing what we are doing….Life is about asking questions and sometimes the question should be “Why are we doing what we are doing?”
Some people simply love to spoil a good time….Some people like to be the first to stop the laughter in the room. Some people simply love to predict the worst…..Some people simply want to ruin the fun…..I call these people “Bubble Bursters….”
Bubble busters love to throw a wrench into any good situation…..When they see happy people….they find their way to them and do their best to bring them down….Down to their level where everything is doom and gloom and often they do a great job of doing so….
When I detect a bubble burster I simply run the other way…..They have nothing good to contribute to my life….and I don’t want them spoiling my party…..
WHEN GRUFF IS NICE…
There was this old gruff man who used to live in my neighborhood. One could never tell what he was thinking because he looked so …..gruff……He rarely smiled and when he did we would almost fall down because it stunned us so much to see him pleasant….
What I found out later was that this man simply felt people did not like him so he built up an exterior that kept people away….People were sort of afraid of him because of how he came across…..Later I also found out he was one of the nicest and softest people around…..Gruff people sometimes are really not so gruff….They simply don’t know how to let down their guard……When we understand this sometimes we may want to be a little kinder to a person who may not have experienced kindness in a long time….
USE TECHNOLOGY TO YOUR ADVANTAGE….
Technology can be a great thing….when it is being used for great purposes and in the right ways…..Technology can be used for wrong things as well…..When technology is being used for what is positive and life enhancing it can be one of the best things around us….
I simply love to update my computers, cell phones, and almost any of my appliances in my home to the latest models….It is fun seeing the changes that can take place in a short amount of time due to advances in technology…..Technology can help simplfy our lives in ways that save us time, keep us organized, and connect us to those who live far away….Yes, I love technology for all the wonderful that it has given to my life….
SIMPLY CHANGE IT….
I like the idea of CHANGE IT if we don’t like it……Why stay in a situation that is not making us happy? Sure I understand some situations we simply cannot get out of or should not get out of at the moment….but more often than not the only reason we are in those situations is because we have chosen to be…
SIMPLY CHANGE IT is an attitude of identifying what we don’t like in our lives and deciding in what ways we want to change it and then make the changes…Changes come with effort and often a great deal of thought before hand....but the alternative is to remain stuck in a situation that is less than our best.....Consider Simply Changing what you don't like into something you do like......
I simply avoid complainers…..I am not talking about someone who has had a bad day and simply wants someone to talk to. We can all have one of those days and there truly is nothing better than someone who will listen to us simply unload the frustrations we have experienced….What I am talking about are those people who make complaining a way of day to day life….Those people who simply have little positive to say about anything or anyone….Those people I simply avoid…
Complainers can be found anywhere and everywhere and simply find anyone who will listen to their endless list of woes.......Identifying complainers and avoiding them can be one of the very best things we can do......
Some places lead nowhere…..They are simply dead ends. I wonder why people give time to many dead end situations…..Relationships that have nowhere to go but down, jobs that simply cannot go anywhere but stagnate at best, environments that simply do not offer anything at all beyond what they are getting….These are all dead ends....
Determining if something is a dead end is important….Once detected and determined as a deadend it is up to the individual as to whether they want to proceed to invest time and energy into something that is unlikely to ever give them anything they really want…..Often going the other way in life can be one of the best things we can do….Life is a highway not a dead end road unless one chooses it to be....
GIVE IT A LAUGH….
There are times in life we simply need to chill out and GIVE IT A LAUGH…..Life is not always serious even though at times it can seem like it is…..When we laugh we release into the air a good feeling about our lives….A good laugh is a good way to simply relieve the stress in our lives….Take the time to laugh….It will do you good….
