LOVE WILL KEEP US TOGETHER - In Crazy Times
I decided on this title cause I wanted to help someone....
So, LOVE can change things this I know for sure. How many times have you felt really angry and then all of a sudden "something" reminds you of a good time or a blissful moment in your life when you felt really happy? It could have been in the past few years or a long time ago, but that slideshow in your brain makes you feel like you just ran 10 miles to a better place in one blissful moment of thought. This is what LOVE can do and how fast it can make things better in any given situation. I have seen people arguing for no reason....infact we are all guilty of causing silly little arguments to "lash out" at someone who we are close too. Just because. Even if they have nothing to do with why you are angry! I mean some people even take out their anger on complete STRANGERS! I have seen this many times where the poor "punching bag" person just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time! A store clerk or a young waitress who just happened to be having a hard day and then WHAM BAM....Mr. or Mrs. MISERY let's them have it! Out of nowhere the anger builds about the crack in the egg from a purchase a few days ago. OR maybe the coffee at the diner got cold a little too quickly. Either way, not a nice day for someone and anyone else who happened to be in their war path. I'm sure everyone has heard of ROAD RAGE?!! Just another example of someone LOSING IT and then taking it out on an innocent victim. I still love the saying TAKE A CHILL PILL or one I learned from someone in the UK a while ago. CHILLAX! HA
CHOOSE LOVE OVER HATE...No I am NOT a hippy!
If there are two choices in front of you at any given moment, choose LOVE. This is what I mean by the title above this paragraph. I have done this many times and have seen my life improve on a daily basis. I don't sweat the little things and if something truly bothers me I voice it nicely without ripping someone's head off! It is called the ART OF COMMUNICATION. I have strived since my early 20's to get better at communicating and I can honestly say things have gotten to a really good place in my 40's. Why? Well because I did the work and I learned how not to make the same mistakes again. Also now I can really understand how my words can truly hurt someone especially after being a mother. Sometimes I'm in business mind and sometimes I'm in MOMMY mind.....but there are those times when I mix the two up and chaos ensues! This is not a good thing! Like if I'm upset at some business dealing or had an intense phone call with a studio I may say something to the kids that isn't quite right. I never curse or say bad words but I have been guilty of using sayings that I would normally address adults with. I know. I'm working on this! This is my next LOVE lesson when it comes to my kids or others who are in my life in a BIG way!
This Is Why I NEVER Comment Or Talk About Politics.....
Just seeing the postings on a social sight that I spend time on let's me see that this is not a good time for the word LOVE especially when it comes to the future of our country and WHO will be running it. The hardest part for me is that I can see how angry some people are when it comes to our president and the others. I am not naming names because it just causes some to have an emotional reaction no matter what. This is why I never post anything about it. I don't think the word LOVE could even come into any discussion that has to do with the future of our country and the lives of our children. I have seen loving family get togethers turn into CHAOS as soon as someone takes another side or chooses someone over another.
Politics does not have anything to do with LOVE. Because even if you tried to be loving, the feud will continue and nothing will get better. It will be a "draw." So with that I can't tell you who I think will be a better choice at this time. The whole thing is so confusing and the world and economy is in such a bad place. I choose LOVE and whatever I can do to help a friend or someone in need is a better place to put my POSITIVE ENERGY into. I mean instead of arguing about CLOWNS, why not make the world better by helping people you know?!
THIS IS WHAT I MEAN WHEN IT COMES TO CHOOSING LOVE.
Every Day I show Love...
I have learned that if I wake up and do something "special" for someone else my day always turns out better. I don't know how to explain this but I know if I do something POSITIVE it just creates a better outcome no matter what. I mean why live in misery all of the time? Just think about it.....LOVE brings people around you and when everyone shares or passes along something POSITIVE eventually better things happen for everyone. Right? I mean why did it take so long for everyone to figure this one out?
So next time an argument ensues remember instead of spiraling into a volcano, why not listen and think before you speak?! Think to yourself that it is better to say something nice instead of hurting the ones you love. LOVE will make the world go round. Yes indeed!

Dear "women of the world." Think about it. You can not make a man love you! Nomatter what you feel or how much he does for you, or how successful he is...you can not force the heart unless it is true. It is...
