Discussing and dissecting an issue ad nauseam is pointless action.

Attempting to force reality in line with your fairy tale is pointless action.

Taking your baggage to a different doorstep is pointless action.

Pointless action simply prolongs the inevitable FAILURE.

And while some are happy over there in descent to failure limbo,

The best of us take a hard look in the mirror and make the necessary changes to create the life we desire.

Who are you?

Best decide.

You don’t have forever.

When a person finds themselves predisposed to complaining about how little they are regarded by others, let them reflect how little they have contributed to the happiness of others. – Samuel Johnson

When Did You Last

Realize that if you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it. – Anthony J. D’Angelo

Focus on You

When you consistently maintain a positive frame of mind, you’ll become known as a problem-solver rather than a complainer. People avoid complainers. They seek out problem-solvers. – Joseph Sommerville

Be the Change

The greatest wealth is health. – Virgil

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.  – World Health Organization, 1948

If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if you have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need, even if it is not all you want.  – Elbert Hubbard

Meet Misty Copeland

In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments – there are consequences. – Robert G. Ingersoll

Baggage is ineffective at home.

Ignorance, infallibility, insecurity and their ilk are known losers.

Baggage does not travel well.

Taken into the realm of the unfamiliar, to the world stage . . . EPIC FAILURE.

Natural consequence.

To be expected.

Reality.

There are but two choices:

  1. Keep the baggage –> remain loyal to the familiar or take it on the road and become a spectacle for all the world to see.
  2. Lose the baggage –> exercise the freedom to venture out, experience the world and enjoy all of its bounty.

Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters. – Albert Einstein

Harmony makes small things grow, lack of it makes great things decay. – Sallust

Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things . . . I am tempted to think . . . there are no little things . . . – Bruce Barton

Grace has been defined as the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul.  – William Hazlitt

Be grateful for and celebrate the beauty in all things because beauty is everywhere; and ignore all limitations and boundaries wherever they are found, because they are illusion. – David F. Sanders

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. – Gandhi

In our interactions with others, gentleness, kindness, and respect are the source of harmony. – Buddha

“So, we have acknowledged that the key to successful relationships may lie partly in embracing our femininity;

but how do we go about using our feminine powers to make it all happen?” continue reading

 

This world is a big and beautiful place.

If you are going to paint yourself into a corner, make sure that it is to your benefit.

Otherwise, you are setting yourself up as a victim and limiting your access to the bounty.

I argue that white Americans should be called European-Americans if I have to subject myself to being called African-American. I prefer just American, but Black will do in the interim. I find African-American to be offensive because I have no ties to Africa. I live and breathe America. African-American implies that I immigrated from Africa to America.

I’ve investigated and most white people that I know have much closer relations to Europe than I do to Africa (which makes me more American, no?). A grandfather from Italy, a great-uncle from Germany. For my family ties to be traced back to Africa, you would literally have to go back more than 10 generations. I actually have closer ties to Ireland than Africa. – Christiana B

Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering. – Miguel Angel Ruiz

If it’s never our fault, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim. – Richard Bach

Accept reality. It is no one else’s responsibility to rescue you. And no one is going to do it.

Take responsibility for yourself and your children. Pointing, blaming, and hating others does not change your situation. Besides, what you think upon grows.

Don’t discriminate. People are people. Seek a like-mind, knowledge, and truth in whomever you find them.

Do for self and

Do it now.

Your life is what you make it.
