Vacation -Day Twelve
Today was clean-up day! I cleaned many bedrooms and two bathrooms! YUCK!
It was a great vacation. I had lot of time to think; ok, too much time to think. I had time to read some books that friends gave me, and now it is their fault that I will be a Dr. Phil to them and to myself. I am more worried about what i will do to myself for all this "open thinking" time.
Let me just share with you some of the great things I feel I have learned over this vacation. Of course, this has come after many thoughts on different subjects.
I may have to blog about some of these, but here goes:
Thoughts I Had Over My Vacation:
-Low Points in ANY relationship can be "Hope Points."
-Every Path you take has a cost.
-We All Choose Fences.
-Quit anything where you can own the choice and its consequences.
-Stay with something if you can own the choice and its consequences.
-Consider the wrongs or broken dreams that lie buried within your heart as splinters.
-Splinters MUST be removed.
-"Status Quo" is not what you think it is; or is it?
-The difference between "Victim" and "Victor" is 2 little letters.
-Cruel Words do to the spirit what a vacuum cleaner does to dirt; sucks you in and entraps you.
-Pledge the "New Beginning" to yourself each day.
-Work "with" your emotions as opposed to working "for" your emotions.
-It is not wrong to have negative emotions; it's wrong to wallow and stay stuck there. (Splinters hurt going in and out, don't they?)
-Real Relationships are far more interesting than dreams.
-Turn anger into your Ally. Use anger to bring people together to generate success.
-What you avoid controls you.
-Touch someone with words.
-Begin with the end in mind.
-Your Faith answers the "why."
-Treasure Your Own Value!
-Pledge to yourself that you will always learn from ALL of your life; the good and the bad.
-FLY BECAUSE NOTHING HOLDS YOU DOWN.
-I am blessed to have the parents I have; the family I have; the friends I have.
-I am lucky.
-I have so much else to do that I am not doing.
-My future needs to change to benefit ME; no one else is going to care for my future as much as me.
-I make a difference.
