ADVICE; TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT?

ADVICE; TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT?

I have heard good things come to those who wait…What I know is, Greater things come to those who get off their assets and do something to make it happen.

I have done a lot of traveling in my day, I was always looking for the next best thing to find joy.  What I discovered was Joy cannot be traveled to, owned, earned or worn. It is the Spiritual experiences of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.  Denis Waitley

If you’re wondering how to get things done, just remember the distance between dreams and reality is called, action.  And, the only difference between a rut and the grave are the dimensions.  

Next time you get into your feelings, remember others have feelings too, and if you don’t realize that or too self-centered to care, your feeling will be hurting all the time.

Dying is something we have no control over, so why miss your life being afraid of it.  Living life to the fullest is our only priority.  But, when death does arrive it’s not our job to keep it alive, it’s our job to secure the memories?

Martin Luther King Jr. gave a sermon about death shortly before his own and he warned us in his speech that “You maybe 38 years old, as I happen to be, and one day some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. You refuse to do it because you are afraid…Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you are just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90”

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.  Vivian Greene

The older I got the more I realized I don’t hate people, I just don’t like their ways.

I thought I knew what I needed until I learned Necessity is blind until it becomes conscience. Freedom is the consciousness of necessity.

“That which you call your soul or spirit is your consciousness, and that which you call free will is your mind’s freedom to think or not, the only will you have is your only freedom, the choice that controls all the choices you make determines your life and your character.”   Rand

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.  Phillippians 4: 11-13

When it comes to resolutions: I want to be the person that looks forward to not restarting old habits, or to start bad ones like binge eating, drinking too much, etc…I only want to be content.  And I don’t want to wake up after another 365 days wondering why I didn’t become a better person.

Can I tell you a secret?  There are no secrets.  And when you put yourself above the rest, the truth comes in at a close second.

To gain control over another person is to remain calm and unruffled under all circumstances.  Thomas Jefferson

Just because you are old doesn’t mean you can lead.  Especially if you can’t embrace change.  And in case you didn’t know, Adaptability is the simple secret to Survival.

Did you know the mark of an educated mind is to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it?  And, It’s not necessary to hold all the cards in life, but it is important how well you play with the cards you do hold?

It’s too bad, an opportunity is missed by most people because it’s dressed in overalls and look like work.  And, did you know for the top to survive, the bottom has to stay low.  Get up.

Some of the best advice I have ever received came from my mother.  She told me to be authentic and transparent.  She said I was irreplaceable, and I believed her.

THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

AT THE TABLE FOR RESOLUTIONS!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each page and sharing is encouraged.

THE TABLE FOR RESOLUTIONS!

There are an array of meanings about the word resolutions such as; a promise to yourself to do or not do something; this one is closely associated with New Year’s Eve… some resolutions refer to pixels and highlighted colors for picture quality on a TV or computer screen.

The resolutions am talking about are the ones that rely on a jury of our peers, and or the voting process to resolve problems related to the masses in general, with consistency.   What’s good for the goose should be good for the gander.  That is what The Supreme Court is supposed to be all about.

The all for one, and one for all crowd like judges, state and local representatives should be free of racial practices and personal imbalances, including those seeking un-warranted gain, others wanting to defraud the public, deceitful representatives of power, thieves and things I cannot name.

Let us choose those who have tactical and forward-thinking techniques, coupled with experiences and an awareness of not only the big ticketed items but also the lesser-known issues that can impact the good of all.

These are the Technicians I want to represent me in situations where we have to acquire representation (voted in or chosen) while believing they are the best person’s to get the job done sitting at The Table For Resolutions. 

We need hands-on people with experience when it comes to situations that we need to know and fix.  We need to hear from those with the capacity to produce the best results in life or death situations.

In my opinion, the battle driven are the ones on par to produce an accurate and reliable account, coupled with the best solution because of their on-site privilege to knowledge which gives them the expertise to rule.  I haven’t forgotten about the Common Folks; everybody needs to be a part of something, even a fool will give good advice, oftentimes without their knowledge… 😦

The respected and accredited with the first-hand experience must also have Great Minds, and an ability to share while working with others, so let’s allow the Problem-Solvers to join the team in-order to sort through a vast array of worldly problems by allowing them to have a seat at The Table For Resolutions along with the Rational People and the Inventors to make a way out of noway

You don’t need me to tell you a fool always finds himself a seat at every table.  The thing is, we never see him coming. When he/she told us who they are when we met for the first time, we didn’t listen.  As far as the imposter is concerned you ignored not only his words but also his questionable actions.  

Ever thought about if you didn’t listen then, he assumes you aren’t listing now?

I suggest we be mindful of our mindset, the results may not be all that matters; some gains are ill-gotten, and just so you know, they are rarely reliable.  Some say it’s back to square one or the drawing board.

By the way, has anyone asked about your qualifications to lead since you have had a lot on your plate, and did they ask you if you learned anything worthwhile if so?   Am just saying everyone isn’t mentally or physically up for the leadership role, although we may think we are; some still believe they are creditable even after being proven to be part of the problem.

Let’s not forget the ones who have an attitude concerning any responsibilities, coupled with the ones who are without a clue. You know, the wannabees; the people who know more about anything and everything than the actual survivor’s, victims, recipients, whatever whoever.

Those know it alls are handing out second-hand information as if it was gospel and not allowing the ones affected to get a word in.

In other words, as a Cancer Survivor, I was ignored constantly by the ones who know me when I tried to address some inaccuracies; no one was listening, they only wanted to talk about what they heard, but not from the horse’s mouth.  ???

I want positive, living survivors and real victims representing me at The Table For Resolutions, especially when it comes to health and welfare, I want doctors, not politicians.  I want a team, elected or not, that has been there and done that with Eyes Wide Open, including the ones in the know just because they know.  Let’s get fresh ideas while we’re at it.

Let the military men make the decisions about War, not the owner of a weapons depot, who may or may not have dodged the draft…  Let those represent me that stay in their lane with unclogged ears ready to transmit the correct information for the brain to process and resolve.

These are the people a Society need to be sitting at their Table For Resolutions or anywhere decisions have to be made; especially when in the home, hospitals, and places that are near, dear or far, for whatever reasons.

FYI: Let our best warriors plan the tactical strikes, let women sit at the table when it comes to their issues.  All I am saying is the best thing we can do is put our best foot forward by putting our best options out there and have representatives sitting at the table and the seats are occupied by the best minds in all decision making; that is as long as they stay in their respected fields.

Intelligence, compassion, and trustability are just a few of the qualifications needed when searching for the right Mind to Lead.  These capabilities are a must when searching for any candidate to qualify; ( World leaders, husbands, Pastors, family, boy or girlfriends, etc.)  In other words, a reliable and trustworthy representative of and for you.

The key is the candidate has to have a sense of purpose and a clear knowledge of how to handle right versus wrong.  Still, trial and error most likely will occur with or without permission, so keep it fair, balanced and honest without prejudices.

Most of all, we need average people to Champion the underprivileged sitting at The Table For Resolutions with the same power as the privileged.  We AreThe People;

On the need to know basis, we need representatives that are capable of getting the job done Without your two cents.

FOR A LACK OF COMMON SENSE?

CONTACTS CAN BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF EACH PAGE AND SHARING IS ENCOURAGED.

FOR A LACK OF COMMON SENSE?

Common sense is in spite of, not the result of education. Victor Hugo.

It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.  Robert G. Ingersoll

Normally, common sense tells the majority of us not touch fire simply because it’s hot.  A lack of common sense tells us to set ourselves on fire.  Good sense is to use common sense in a manner that is effective for all.

We need more than just common sense to navigate a vast array of stupidity when it comes to being reasonable.  Common sense should attack unreasonable displays of nonsense knowledge when given to us by other means, like stupidity.

We are living in a complicated era that requires more than just common sense, especially when giving our opinions without forethought.  If we decide to dominate the world with our wise and opinionated selves, we need an uncanny ability loaded with uncommon sense to get our point across.

George Washington Carver tells us; When we can do the common things in life in an uncommon way, we will command the attention of the world.  

Heroism is an act of bravery that I believe is suffering from a lack of common sense, although I welcome it; the brave are left with deadly consequences due to their actions.  An example is when an ordinary person steps in front of a bullet so that a stranger may live.

Most know uncommon acts of heroism isn’t for everybody, most are reluctant to get in harm’s way.  At best, most will run and hide, but just far enough to watch the drama unfold while pulling out their cell phone to start filming.

In these types of situations, common sense should tell us to call the police instead of the News.  Anything less than that is uncommon and unacceptable.

I believe common sense is widely accepted for all the wrong reasons, and the biggest misconception is too many claims have been made about having more of it than all the others.  I think self-imposed common sense is unrealistic gibberish that lacks substance just so we can have it our way.  The New Norm?

I know some transitions can be strenuous, but we can’t allow ourselves to abort common sense because of that.

AM OUT?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

If you find yourself in the wrong story leave.

Down through the ages, most workout junkies love a strick and robust exercise routine in order to get their adrenaline pumping like a raging river to encourage their hearts to beat at a much faster pace.

The thing is, some Doctors think the heart only has so many beats.  So while we are banging away trying to get that perfect body, some hearts are not as young as others, so use caution, your heart may be struggling to keep up with your desires while slowly running out of beats; That’s my opinion too.

So, Am Out…

I wanted to read Men Are From Mars And Women Are From Venus, but common sense tells me Men Are From Earth And So Are Women, so I couldn’t get into it.  Maybe next time, that’s if they come back to Earth?

Enough Said, Am Out…

There have been times when searching for a particular solution I have heard the answer is As plain as the nose on your face; referring to my nose.  Well, that didn’t help either, nor did I believe it; I can’t see my nose.

That’s Why Am Out.

It’s okay to change your mind when it comes to what life has in store for us; murder, charity, fun, evil doings, even walking out of someone else life because of the changing times and or necessity.  Maybe it’s a difference in beliefs, opinions, it could be violent or you simply drifted apart, etc… Sounds like a Good Time To Get Out.

That’s Why Am Out…

FYI: We all grow at a different rate of speed coupled with different levels of understanding, so in that event, we all handle what life is dishing out differently, you know, the things that cause us to make must do, life-changing decisions.  If you don’t, Woe is unto you.

So with that, Am Out…

FYI: It is impossible to live a happy life if trapped in a position that is unhealthy or unnatural for you; we are not talking about things you can do nothing about, so choose wisely from the I can-do list.

I know from experience that The price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change.

That’s Why Am Out…

From previous experiences, I know for a fact that in most cases If you choose bad companions, no one will believe you are anything but bad yourself.  Get Behind Me, Satan!

 With that Am Definitely Out…

Did you know at the very beginning of most relationships, personal or otherwise, the people involved know when a situation is uncomfortable for them, its at this point we get that gut feeling, intuition, bad character notifications, but far more important, we know what fits and what does not, so if The shoe doesn’t fit…

Am Out…

I am just keeping it real by admitting to the fact that a few people I didn’t like at first sight, for some reason has ended up on my friends’ list, so sometimes things work out, but just like so many things can go right, there are far more that can go wrong, especially when starting something new…

So, these days when I get that something is wrong, feeling, and or a person tells me from jump street who they are and that analysis does not fit well with me, I take heed.

I believe what people say out of their mouths about themselves, the first time, and if I don’t like what they said, I Run to the Hills.  

 Am Out…and am in a hurry

Experiences have taught me some hard lessons, so I agree with Paul Harvey,; I made tomorrow my favorite day, I’ve been uncomfortable looking back.  That statement made me say, Me Too!

That’s Why Am Out…

Let’s make things a little clearer if you are manipulative or your presents make me feel fidgety or anxious just because we’re in the same room, Am Out!

If you never see the good in others, a constant bearer of bad news or you are the type who builds others up only to let them down and never support anything or anybody, especially when needed, Am Out.

If you are always trying to take advantage of others while disrespecting and laughing at their mistakes, or get loud on me, in or out of the public, Am Out.

If you are unapologetic or make fun of another’s talents if you are about belittling any and all because it makes you feel better to hurt others, paired with being two-faced and dripping with untrustworthiness and void of compassion.  Its time to part ways.

After all that Am Totally Out!
