How important is it to communicate? It is very important. How else would you be informed? It is so important to get things out in the open and communicate with anything that you do in life. No matter what the circumstances are it is very important to communicate. If you do not than information gets lost and forgotten about. Imagine how you would feel if you never knew an important piece of information. What would you do? You would be very angry wouldn’t you? How would you manage? How would you make sure it would not happen again? Imagine waiting for an important document or something that your life depended on and you never knew the information. People that are lazy and do not communicate should be held accountable for their actions. Why is it they get away with it? I wish I knew. Either way communicate and let others know the information they need. Thank you for reading my blog. Now onto the next life lesson.

How many times do you ask yourself why? Why did this happen? Why is he or she treating me like this? Why ? It is a very powerful word. We do not always know the answers but yet we keep asking the question. We always want to know why. It will always be a part of our lives. Maybe if we had more answers than questions we would have less whys. There are a million reasons why things happen. We just have to accept just one. That is it. Sometimes things cannot be explained and other times other people are in control of the whys. Why can’t we get along? Why can’t we be friends? All questions that get asked a million times a day. Can you imagine if there was no WHY? There has to be a Why, Who, What, a Where, and a When. We need these words to answer the most important questions of our lives. Sometimes things hang over our heads and that is never a good thing. People get wrapped up in things and let that take over their daily thoughts. Things race through your mind and you just cannot stop it. It is easy to say you cannot get angry at things you cannot control. It is not easy I know because I worry all the time and I cannot stop worrying. I need to feel at peace and I do not know if I can. I feel like I am always climbing the steepest mountain, with no breaths ore breaks. I feel pressure and you want to know WHY. It is due to many different things Waiting to hear about news is the worst WHY because you want answers you want to know what is next. I believe in God and God knows why and sometimes he can only explain the unexplained. He will always give you strength when you least expect it. Talk to God and pray. Or just talk and let him know what is going on. Thank you for reading my blog. Now onto the next life lesson.
I believe in God. I believe in the power of prayer like never before. God is so good. He is listening. I think at t his moment we as a nation need God more than anything in the world. The more we pray the more things will get better. I believe that with all my heart and soul. Do you pray? Do you believe in God? Even if you have a moment of silence each day just to clear your mind really helps stress. There is one prayer I have out there that has yet to be answered. Please pray with me. Take a deep breath and pray. Sometimes I feel afraid and then after I pray I feel better. They say the lord works in mysterious ways. If you pray than that is wonderful. If not that is okay too. I am not here to preach just to give my thoughts. If you haven’t prayed maybe you should try it. God is always listening. No call waiting or busy signals. Let me know how it goes. Thank you God for my blessings. Now onto the next life lesson.
Are you obsessed with perfection? Do you want everything to be perfect all the time? Are you a routine oriented person? I am very routine oriented. I like to know what my schedule is each day. I like to cross things off my list. I like to know that I have been productive. However, at times that is a problem because I do not know how to unplug or relax without thinking if something goes wrong. I am a fixer and I like to things to be right. I do not like bad news or change. I just want to live life in peace. A very simple word just something very hard to come by. Why do you suppose that is? I wish I knew. I know that all I can do is my best. I do the best I can every day. I take care of my family. I try and be a good friend and neighbor. I just wish I could relax more. My mind is always going a million miles a minute. I have been praying for this one thing for a long time and I just need God to answer my prayers. I hope he does. I do not like anything hanging over my head. I get uptight and nervous. How do you feel each day? How do you cope and get through your days? I would love to know. Maybe you can help others. People say you cannot dwell over things you cannot control easier said than done. Anxiety is very real and it is hurts. Trust in God and keep praying. God is so good. Now onto the next life lesson.
These two little girls officially met in junior high. They were inseparable. They did everything together. Sure they had an occasional tiff but they always worked it out. You would think that over the years time or life would have separated them but that was never the case. These two stood by each other through everything. They were in each others weddings they were around for the births of their children. (even if they were far away they were connected by their strong friendship) They belly laughed and had private jokes and even the occasional venting sessions which called for some tissues and ice cream. These two were like sisters. Looking back to everything you would never think a bond this strong could be broken. Well guess what after thirty seven years of friendship it was over just like that. A flick of a light switch or kick in the gut. All because of back and forth texting and trying to give advice. Does it even matter what is was about? I guess I answered my own question. It does not matter to them. The silence says it all. Rule number one in life Talk about things in person. Forgive each other, life is short. In this crazy world when you can be anything just be kind. If I could go back in time and fix it I would . We always thought it would be impossible to not to be in each others lives I guess nothing is impossible. I will say this If I no longer have this person by my side than it is their choice. They made that decision. They should know I wish them nothing but the best. I wish all good things for them.
All of this said I think they were a pretty good friend and I was a pretty good friend. We both invested time and memories. Now that is all we have is the memories. We no longer speak or hear about our daily lives or laugh or cry. There is just darkness and silence. I wonder how they are doing.? Maybe they wonder or maybe they don’t. I said my peace and now life goes on. Do you have a best friend? If you have a best friend hold onto them and tell them that you love them and you appreciate them. Always have faith and work things out. If you are really the BEST OF FRIENDS than you will and who knows maybe the same goes for those two little girls from Junior High. Now onto the next life lesson.
How many friends do you have? How many people do you trust? How many people are in your circle? Is it a big circle? A small circle? Do you trust easily? Do you have a lot of friends? Do friends come and go? Do you have the same friends that you have had for years? Some of us are fortunate enough to have those friends. Others are not as lucky. I believe we have the people in our lives for a reason. They are here to guide us and to help us through our every day adventures. Good friends are very hard to come by. Hold onto those good ones. When you least expect it the friendship is gone. If that is the case than maybe it was just not meant to be. It is sad and unfortunate but life goes on. I believe in strong friendships , talking things out and working together to make friendships better. Not everyone agrees. We do not have to agree we can still be friends. If not that is okay life goes on and if it is meant to be than you will work it out. Maybe some prayer and with God’s help you can mend things. I pray you do if that is what you want. Hang in there life is good. Now onto the next life lesson.
Have you ever wanted to say or write something but you held back? Why did you hold back? Was it something that wasn’t appropriate or were you just scared? Did you feel like no one was listening so why bother? Did you feel like you could not tell anyone? Do you feel alone and afraid? Do you feel like you have no one? Everyone needs someone to talk to. Whether it is a family member, a priest, a rabbi or a best friend. Who do you talk to? Who do you confide in? Who do you trust? Has something changed in your life to think differently? I want to hear from you. Sometimes life throws us curveballs and no matter how hard we try to figure it out we can’t. We one day wake up and suddenly life is different something is missing. You can feel it in your heart. A few memories come up on your phone that you glance at and you remember a time in your life when life was different. Today I wanted to do a long post on social media but I decided not to. No one has time and neither do I . I chose to make time on here instead. This is my blog and my world. I decide what to say and do. Do you want to say something to someone? Do you want to tell someone how you feel? I shared my opinion and it got lost in translation and all of the sudden the world went black for just a second. I felt empty and I just stood there and that was it. They were gone and I tried to reach out and I got no where. My kids have said it is okay you have other people in your life that care about you do not waste your energy on people that do not want you in their life. You know what they are right. Why should I? Give me one reason why I should care? I thought so. People have come in and out of my life for most of it. The ones that stick around are the ones that are real and care about me. I will not waste space in my head thinking about someone that does not care about me. It is their loss. If you are fortunate enough to find a friend that will stick by you no matter what than you are very lucky. I pray everyday for everyone. God listens to me he listens to everyone. Now onto the next life lesson.
Do you give up to easily? Do you not have confidence? Why do you give up so easily? I think that it’s hard for some people to stick to something. Maybe they haven’t found their nitch. Maybe they need someone to help boost their confidence. We can all feel like we have failed it’s normal. We have all felt like giving up. But promise me that you won’t. Make an effort and work hard and I promise you will shine like a star. Go ahead go for it. You have nothing to lose. Hold you head up high and do it. Go for your dreams and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t. Now into the next life lesson.
No, I never won the lottery or climbed Mt Everest and that is okay. I am just a person who it trying to live my life the best way I know how. I take care of my family.

I honor my commitments and I have taught my kids right from wrong. I do not want a medal or a statue built in my honor I just want peace and a happy life. I want to know that I made a difference . I love my family and even though I never won the lottery, climbed Mt Everest I still made a difference. I am not just a daughter, or a mom or even an author I am a woman living her life the best way I know how. How do you live your life? Are you happy? Do you have a family? Are you a person who cares for others? No matter how you live your life I hope you live it honestly and to the fullest. Why is peace so hard to come by for some people. I will continue to live my life and raise my kids to be good citizens and to work hard in life. What are you going to do? Now onto the next life lesson.
