over the course of the end of last week, and the beginning of this week...(hello monday)...a common theme of "people" keeps popping up. we are all so very different- good, bad, or otherwise. the end of last week was again more winter weather, and that comments made to people about this weather and what they/ we should be doing about it. i can't think that if everyone would take a moment before complaining people would be much better off. i heard a commercial that said, i start off each day in a great mood, it just depending on people how long that lasts....action, reaction, give, take...

people make our world go round- it is good that we are not all the same- how boring would that be; uninteresting, unimaginative, and probably unforgiving. i try to make it a better place- if i can help, i try; if i am able- do; speak if needed and hold my tongue when it is not really going to make any difference...why truly change someone else's day with bad comments about something that cannot be helped. be kind, be good, be honest, be missed when not there. set a good example.


  1. I couldn't agree more. Is this why my core group of friends has dwindled to pretty much nothing? I can't take complaining anymore, life's too fun to be bombarded with everyone's negativity. I have to say that the weather comments is one of my biggest pet peeves! I really do like every season (ok I don't LOVE late summer but I do try to keep it to myself) ! :)

  2. hmmmm, i love this post!
    my favorite of my many mantras is,
    "always be kinder than necessary because everyone is fighting some kind of battle"
    i live that every day and i always try to not complain because it could always be worse.

    there. that's how i live my life.
    oh there's more, but this is just the comment box, not a post. lol


thanks for your comments- i love hearing from you!!
