May your Memorial Day weekend be the best ever!
May your Memorial Day weekend be the best ever!
Each day you live knowing that there is something that will come along making all past mistakes make perfect sense. Each day you live wondering when your good karma will be returned. That is the problem, do not live in waiting and wonder, live each day to the fullest knowing full well that each decision you make will come back ten fold later on, at some point – when the timing is right.
Meeting that perfect for you person is something that many long for and few find that perfect for them mate, Mister or Mrs Right so to speak. I am blessed because I have met many a men in my life and many a men have been wonderful, others have been jerks and while all of my relationship decisions seemed right at that moment; there is something different about that moment when you realize that you truly have found Mister or Mrs Right. It will be as if a light bulb has gone off in your brain.
One moment you are happy that you found a great person then the next it seems you are missing their smile, their eyes, they hugs and their feedback to conversations. One moment you are happily in like and the next completely in love, wondering how you could live without them. Of course people can live without that Mister or Mrs Right but when you find it, it’s as if the world has changed to you. Everything looks brighter, more simple and it seems just as long as you have that love together that everything will be all right. It’s an amazing feeling that makes you realize just how many elders have lasted so many years married together.
When you finally find that Mister or Mrs Right for you, you will know and when you know, do not let it go. Do not let your own imperfections or theirs keep you both from living a long lived love life ….
I have been working from my laptop for a while now, I am really missing my work PC. At first it was no big deal because I have this laptop to get work done from, then when I realized that my laptop had no DVD burner, therefore I couldn’t install my Windows Office software, I started to get frustrated. Next, I found out my laptop didn’t play nice with my server which is where all of my pictures as well as business files are stored so I was unable to access any of my work files. That was a huge bummer and made my work days less efficient.
Today, I followed up with my ex husband when I dropped our little guy off to him and found out that my work PC is completely messed up. He has spent hours upon hours trying to diagnose but still is trying to pinpoint the problem. The power supply and other simply items have been removed from the list of possibilities of what’s wrong with the PC, now it’s time for him to dig a bit deeper. At this point I just wish I had the funds to pay for all the “guts” of my work PC for an upgrade because I just want it back in working order.
So here I am today having a pretty awesome Monday, the server is now accessible by my laptop, my older two are at school and my youngest is with his Dad for the day. I plan to be productive and stop at some point to shower as well as go register my car. Today is going to be a wonderful day…. and it could only get better if I find out my PC decided to come back to life on it’s own.
I am looking forward to my kid weekend….. there will be five kids in the house this weekend and I bet we will all have a blast.
Cheers to your weekend, may it be filled with memory making moments!
We start life off as innocent, sweet little children so ready and willing to accept everyone, to trust without fear and to simply take life for what it is. No questions. No worries. It’s all about loving life and loving people. Then something happens, our environment we grow up in and our friends and our outsiders at school, eventually that sweet, innocent child turns angry. The anger builds when not given an outlet to talk to or such as what I do, write. That is one thing my Mom always told me I should do, write a book. My Mom knew that whenever I was upset with her she would be able to expect a long letter citing my issues or what not, even apologizes, came in the form of a letter. Writing has simply been a lot easier for me than talking when it comes to confrontational situations. I have worked hard to change that, getting better at verbally confronting situations but writing is still my number one outlet.
With that being said, since I went from a very angry person inside to this happy, positive minded person today, I have this firm belief that any angry, mean person can change. Heck, I believe any person can change if they want to, whether for the better or the worse. My Dad did make a good point to me recently though, once people hit a certain age that is who they are. There is no changing them. I do believe that to be true as well. Let’s say by the time you are into your 30′s and you still are that angry, bitter and mean person well then I do not believe you will come out of that, I think that person will go to their grave angry, mean and bitter.
I do have hope. Hope keeps me going. As it should most people.
I have seen first hand what a smile, a hug and a kind gesture can do for a person. When you see a person down and out, be nice to them. When you are being waited on by a grumpy cashier, be extra nice to them with a genuine smile. Tell them to have a nice day. Make it something automatic that each time someone waits on you that you are genuinely nice, no matter their mood. You will see that their mood will lift during that process. I have seen it and it warms my heart.
I believe if you have a friend or family member that is having a hard time finding their happy that you can show them the way back to a happy place. Back to trusting people again. Some may need therapy in addition to your positive friendship while others may simply take to your kindness, bubbly and happy attitude. Even though many take to who I am today, others still do not take to it 100% and I can tell they need deeper help than what I can offer as a simple happy person to be near, look up to and be friends with.
Mean people can change. Mean kids can change. Remember to be kind, but to not allow disrespect either and in turn you will see that even the meanest of the mean … can change for the better if they have someone to help open up their hearts and see the world close to what they saw when they were that sweet, young, innocent child.
