Tell It

I'm taking a course that covers teen suicide. The Trevor Project's and It Gets Better Videos were discussed.

These people told stories.

My husband is good about telling HIS story of coming out, coming to terms with his background and fitting in.  We don't filter who hears our stories - we just tell them

When I open myself up enough to tell my story, my back ground, failures and joys I find I'm inline with others.

Whats your story? Tell me, talk to other and I know you have more in common than you may think

React & Control

You can't always control your situation. But you can always control how you react to it

Lets make wise choices today

Seek it/Speak it

I know I've said some disparaging things, thought some non affirming thoughts even though I really really try to seek out good.

Work with me and when we want goodness, look for it. When I see the 'bad things' around me I look for what's good and I speak it, share it. Seeking that goodness and not the badness works wonders

Lets stop looking at news items that don't show peoples goodness.  I know it's hard to when shootings happen all over. Racial disparity hits the air waves though less than it  hits real people
Poverty, illness exist - I won't deny it

My paid job in life is to help people. From doing things to seeing a new way of thinking. I can see strife daily

Lets work on seeing only affirming goodness in each other, our world and our selves

Moving On

I know I have a hard time 'moving on' or carrying thoughts or actions of things that happened.

As much as I'd like I can't change to past events or choices I've made - I've learned from them

Has someone said something to annoy you, challenged your ideals, mislead you or such?

I know I've done that and I hope I'm forgiven and can forgive as well as move on from such hurt

Much like my first ever post about Orange Juice, let's focus on what we can change and why along with how,

Let's move on and we all move forward

I'm sure you've heard "it takes more muscles to frown than to smile"   Why take the lazy way and smile with a HUGE grin.  It may cause a chuckle and that takes energy and moves muscles

A real smile never hurt anyone and it does put one's life in perspective.

Do you recall a song from the '80s "Don't Worry Be Happy"?

Lets share a smile don't worry it'll help you be happy

Know me

Do you really know me? Do I know myself?   What I do reflects how others see me.

When I'm outgoing that's the "me" you see thus who I am.

Being honest with myself, my words and actions build my/our character

Do you really know me? If not see where I've been and how I treat others and just ask
