Today is the first day of school. As you all know this is going to be very different year than in the past. We have crazy things going on in this world. We have lots of stresses and things hanging over our heads. Lots of questions without answers, I am not going to lie I am a little scared. BUT what some have forgotten is to have faith. Do you have faith? Are you scared? Do you think we will make it to the finish line? I know we all have fears. It is a scary time. All we can do is to have a positive attitude and faith. God is good and he is here. All you have to do is believe. I know my kids are excited and I want them to be excited. I want them to make the best of it. I want them to thrive. I want the same thing you want for your kids. I want most important to be healthy and safe. So maybe today before the kids wake up or while they are at school take a minute and say a prayer for the kids. the teachers and the parents. I know and I believe our prayers will be answered. Now onto the next life lesson.

What would you do if someone got angry at your for no reason? What would you do if they did not give you a chance to explain about a misunderstanding? How would that make you feel? I learned recently that if someone does something to you or does not like you for whatever reason they have the problem. After all if you did nothing to them and they do not like you it is their issue not yours. Should you apologize if you have done nothing wrong? Of course not. People do crazy things for the wrong reasons. People can make you feel bad because they are angry. They may even stop talking to you without any real reason. Why is that? I do not know have the answers. Some people are just unhappy and feel they need to make others unhappy to please themselves. We have all had people in our lives that have tried to take away our happiness because they are not happy. I would stay away from those people and find people that like you for you. Watch out for the users, the spoilers, and the jealous ones. Keep your guard up if you have to. Try not to trust everyone you meet. Go with your gut and watch your back. I have learned many lessons and have been burned quite a bit. That is okay we move on and we learn from past mistakes we look for signs to watch out for when meeting new people. There are always red flags. BUT there are good people you just have to find them. You are one of them. Be the best you can be do it for you. You do not need a million friends just a few really good ones. Now onto the next life lesson.
We all have people in our lives that save us from something whether we are hanging off a building or need a plunger. We are grateful we have someone that is there in our time of need. It also reciprocates. We are there for them in their time of need. No matter what no questions asked we are there to help. We are helpers and givers. We are grateful and blessed for those people. Do you have a life saver person? Is there someone you can always count on? There is a life saver for all of us . They are the ones that we can count on the most. The ones that live by a code of honor. We are here to help we do not expect anything in return. We are humans and we make mistakes. We know right from wrong. Always do the right thing. Never do anything to embarrass your family. yourself, or your community. If we do we need to learn from it. After all we have our life savers. Some would be considered our own angels. For now we are grateful and we hope to gain more life savers and angels. Now onto the next life lesson.
The mind is so powerful. Our mind controls how we think and feel. When things bother us they tend to linger. We may dwell on the things that really matter. Maybe we are going through a rough time with a job, or money. Maybe we lost a friend or relative. No one really knows how someone feels unless we have been through it. How many times have we said. “Sorry for your loss. ” Of course we are sorry or I know what you are going through. We mean well but we really do not know how it feels if we have been through it ourselves. I have lost both my parents, pets in the past and some friends. It is grief and it is not easy time when you are grieving. Our mind knows how we feel, how we think, how we process things. We have moments where we are not sure how we feel. We cannot describe it because we have not yet processed it. When we know how we feel we can help ourselves get through it. When we hear bad news or when the media gets inside our mind that is not a good thing. We have to have faith and pray. God is on our minds. We can always turn to God he most powerful. He can control things. Do not be afraid to call out to God. If you choose to. I pray everyday and I ask God to look after my family and friends. I believe in him. I have so many things on my mind but at the end of the day he hears my prayers and at night I am calm and I know my mind is clear for my dreams. Now onto the next life lesson.
“What is so funny?” Does anyone laugh anymore? Does anyone smile anymore? I want to know. We need laughter after all they say it is the best medicine. We need compassion and love. We as a nation need to get back to laughing. I know there is a lot of craziness in the world . We still need to laugh. It is so important for our minds and our souls. Even my Dad used to say “They died laughing” He was referring to his patience. He always said, “Never lose your sense of humor.” I find this to be true. I really do. I believe in my heart of hearts we need humor. Do you feel we need humor? Are you laughing? If so share your jokes , your smiles, your thoughts on life with laughter. What about with out it? I do not think I want to know . So ladies and gentleman let’s get our smiles out . I say let it out laugh out loud. smile. sing out loud! Be the best comedian you can be. Are the comedians out of business without laughter? I hope not I think we need them more than ever. Now onto the next life lesson.
Someone once told me if someone does not accept you it is not your problem it is theirs. For life is not fair and that is okay. If you do not find your place keep looking do not give up. You are bound to find nice people in you journey through life. There is always someone for everyone. A purse to a shoe, a sock to a foot, a bra to a pair of underwear. I could go on and on. A friend for a friend, and even a soulmate. Do not give up. People come and go but real friends stick by you. Please do not look back. look ahead and hold your head up high. People who do not include you or like you for whatever reason that is their problem. Go out there and make some new friends form your own group of friends. Do not let others dictate your life. After all it is your life NOT theirs. There will always be someone that acts so cool and thinks they world revolves around them. I have news for them it does NOT. It is not about you! Life is what you make of it and if you let what others think of you get to you than you are ruining your life. Time to move on and live your life. Remember smile God loves you. Now onto the next life lesson.
Do you remember that first step you took toward something important? Maybe it was a job interview or maybe you were asking a girl out? Whatever it was do you remember how you felt? Were you nervous? Were you excited? Did you get the job? Did the girl go out with you? Every once in a while we need encouragement and strength. We need both of these to get through hard times. After you went through your first hurdle how did it go after that? Did you accomplish your goals? Did you make the right decision? We do not always get what we want. If we work hard then usually we do. Of course there are some road blocks along the way. It is all part of life. We get through it and we move on. Healthy competition is good. We need to feel like we have earned something. How about you? What did you compete for? Did you win? How did it make you feel? Or maybe you came in second. This will only make you work harder. In life there will always be someone smarter, healthier. or have more money. It does not change the fact that you have the same opportunity as anyone else who works hard. You may not have gotten it this time but something better could be around the corner. Do not give up on yourself. Do not live in fear. Remember you have your strength, your faith and God. I want to hear from you my readers. What is your story about strength? How did you over come an obstacle? I have had many obstacles and challenges . I continue to be focused and ready for the next one. How about you? Now onto the next life lesson.
What is your plan? Do you have one? Are you ready? Are you starting a new chapter of your life? I know those are heavy questions. I just was thinking about a plan. What should we do? What do you think is going to happen? Okay that is a lot now just take a breath. Think about what is important to you and make that your top priority. If you think about to many things it will stress you out. Try and remember that Rome was not built in a day. I know I cannot handle to many things at once. I do not expect anyone else to. We need to have control over our own lives. We need to remember that we are only human. We need to remember that no matter what we always have God. You will not fail you not lose faith because you have GOD. The ones that can multi task just let them. They are doing what they can do. You can only do what you can do. Be the best you can be, thank God, and know that you are doing the right thing. Do not lose sight of that. Say please and thank you more, hold the door open for someone. smile at someone. include them in your gatherings. smile at someone, make a difference.
I want to shout to someone today. A very kind person where I live in is making mask holders and today I picked some up. She isn’t asking for money just a donation. She is a plus and helper. She is giving back and she is making a difference in the community. So we will call her K. K is making a difference so thank you K. God bless you.
Are you making a difference? Are you thinking of ways to make life better for you and your loved ones? If we all pitched in and made a difference people would smile more and be happy. So how about it. Let’s do this. Let me know what you are going to do. I want to hear from you.

Do you make wishes? Do they come true? Do you wish upon a star? I love to make wishes. I hope they come true. Usually people make wishes if they blow out a birthday candle or if they see a shooting star. Have you made a lot of wishes on your birthday? Have you ever seen a shooting star? I have a few times I can tell you where I was and who I was with. I wonder how many wishes really come true? What about you do you wonder about that? You should just close your eyes and try really hard and hopefully your wish will come true. I believe in wishes. I think some do come true. When is the last time you made a wish? When is the last time you saw a shooting star? Remember that if you make a wish you can never tell what you wished for otherwise it will not come true. I hope all of your wishes come true.
