Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart.

We're all different.  Our back grounds ideas opinions, likes joys etc.
I choose to accept all that makes you NOT like me. That diversity is awesome.

Let's all look beyond what we're not and what we are together- knowing there's more to you and me than appearance.

There There

Giving a pat on the back can be healing and  affirming. I know when I do some thing good hearing "Well done" means the world. Do we say or show appreciation enough? I know I'll try to more often

Thank you for reading this blog "Way to go!"

No Pressure

I'm starting with a graphic; one that maybe familiar to you or those with OCD. The "Over or Under DEBATE"
Sure we had this in our house.   I would place the roll one way, he the other. It all depended on who changed the paper.

In some households this would be that "Great Debate" and almost did in  ours.
Then it hit me: this is a small thing. While I know small things can build into larger ones there are some that are left well enough alone.

No pressure that way.  After all it's just TP not cooking spaghetti sauce!

I really really try to release pressure in day to day situations that can be looked at from two sides.
Can you join me in this?

The only difference between a piece of black coal and a priceless diamond is the amount of pressure that it’s endured. You are in the refining process

And yes it is a process!!!

Simply Beautiful

I'm channeling Willy Wonka again "If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it"
Those who know me,  met me personally know I do live by what I write here: Look for the good, Be the good, Share the good.

I'll admit that there's times I don't FEEL the good though. Maybe it's the new meds that caused me to notice my appearance.

Then all at once it hit me reading a friend Kylon's Facebook post (btw the content of his post is not about this message it's that he often brings out the beauty in all he sees/does) that I am ME!  Bold, learning, capable and making changes for me.

That's the kind of beauty I seek in others. Do you?

"Sign sign everywhere a sign, smokin' on the scenery breakin my mind. Do this don't do that can't you read the sign?"  That popular song from the 70's by Five Man Electrical Band pops into my mind far more often than one would think.   It's anti this and that message holds true to much of my life.

There's signs all around us/ME telling or suggesting what to do or not do. Some are worth heading others not so. The signs I pay attention to are the ones my body produces.

Others I ignore and won't even note here. I find keeping signs of goodness and affirmation to help me in daily life more than demands. DREAM MORE, PROMOTE HAPPINESS are signs I like to post through quality living and example.

What are the signs you follow or create?
