Somebody Has to Say It!

In this world! I do find from time to time a nugget of something that either we may take for granted! Or there are times when a thought goes/runs through our minds about something that we somehow believe is true but! Just not that sure about it!

In comes me! Now! I am in no way! Boating/bragging about me at all. It’s just that I would have to say that because of the Internet! I can go places see and do things as well as look up stuff! But as I said. I know from talking to people most of my life. Where we both were not all that sure about it.

I thin that the comments, views, opinions I make! Do give people something to think about and be informed as well. And! Is not it what we all looking for? Information and in a way! An entertaining thought along the way? Another way of looking and seeing things from another fellow space traveler?

Like! When the Government shutdown! Whoever the congressman was that had the idea (As you can see! I am not all that into politics!) My first thought was: “Whoever it is thought that this might be a great way to get a foot in the door of the political system!”. As far as that goes! Small minds! You know the rest!

I do think that since one is fair in their thoughts, comments, views, opinions! And yes! Have done their research into whatever! We can take “Political Correctness” Out of commission aka deep six it!

Because all it is really truly doing to us! Is making us petrified of saying what we think feel, believe in anything. And this should not be. This is not how our parents were raised and their parents and so on. And beside! The last time it reared it’s ugly head (The phrase!)! Was in a comic strip!

The phrase itself! Has the wrong definition! The modern day definition of political correctness is: “Conform and comply with what “I” want you to say and do!” But! To these same people who want others to do and be and say what they want us to! If!!! And if! Someone pulled the same “Trick” on them! The response would be: “HOW DARE YOU!” You see what I mean?

And because it! It restricts us from asking, let along knowing what it is that we need to know. Many times! I have taken the first step in asking questions. Only to be laughed at or embarrassed because! “They” themselves would not dare to ask. Do you want that causes? Mistakes mess ups, screw ups, and the hits just keep on coming!!! We learned that! In grade school and our classmates and even our friends! When they tell us stuff like that! Are they really our friends?

Though! I do not put any stock into the Internet and any websites there are! I have always been one to read one or even more websites and books about something or someone.

For example! I am in the process of reading about FDR and Abe Lincoln. Over the years there have been many books about them. And what I do find interesting is. What one does not talk about! Some other Author will.

Another! The original Tylenol scare! At that time I did subscribe to both time and Newsweek. And I found that what time did not cover! Newsweek did and to the same in reverse as well.

The best quote I ever heard was from Tony Brown of PBS’S Tony Brown’s Journal. And at the end of his program. He would give “Words of thought”. My personal favorite briefly: “It’s always best to get more than one side of a story!”

Enough said!


How to Be a Good Friend |

How to Be a Good Friend |

This is something that I can relate to. Both directly! And indirectly.


Because some these things did happen to me. And others I know of people who had it happen to them as well.


First off! Not all conversations are two-way! Sometimes between friends they can be one-way as well. What I mean is. If a friend has a problem with something. For all we know they just want someone to just listen to them. I know what you think: “What’s the catch?” Perhaps! They needed someone to bounce off the problem to. Sometimes be a sounding board for them.This is just a little bit of what being a friend is about.


Be happy for your friends success! This can be a tough one for some people. Because of the kind/type of friend s/he is.


An example. I had a so-called friend that over the years. He a nothing good to say about me not in any way! But as time went on. I was always happy for him. Then I learned something! I do not need people such as him who are only concerned about them and not others.,


I am happier now! Than I was when we were together.


But that! Is just an isolated incident!

I am doing No. One Now!


And for people who do not like their job! It’s more than likely. They just do not want to go looking for another job. Or pursue something they would like to start a business. But! What they have to do to make a buck is what stops them dead in their tracks. For example! Sales! There is money to be made from it. But they do not want to hear ever that dreaded word “NO!” People have made their money in sales because they had a plan or a goal for themselves. And they did not let that word gets in their way!


Side note: When it comes to sales. Have a goal in mind. There is a reason for it! With a goal you have a direction of what it is that made you choose sales. Sales! Is taking what you already have! And make a buck out of it! AS for the word “NO”! Keep in mind! You may encounter people who may have had a bad day, time, doing whatever. Do not take it as the last word. Just come back a few days later and try again.


No. 6. Open your mind, heart, arms to new things and people. Not everyone is bad! As for our minds? We have to get past what is there before us to see what else is there.,


Let me take No. Seven a little farther! When you meet someone. Always! Like them first. And let them decide if they want to get to know you farther. If not. Move on there are others in the world.


25 Ways to Be a Better Person Today

25 Ways to Be a Better Person Today.


I would like to talk about some of these.


1. Say thank you and mean it! When people do or say something . Say “You’re welcome” It’s a compliment being given and acknowledged.


7. Set goals wisely. And reward yourself for making progress. When making goals! Setup mini goals for yourself that will lead to your main goal. Because as you accomplish each mini goal. The main goal will seen not as hard to achieve.


12. Be honest for 100& for the entire day. It’s easier than you think. For me its like this! With my luck! Why bother?,


24.,Create your own definition of financial freedom,and inject a dose of passion into your budget. Yes! Saving can be fun.


How to Be a Better Person Day by Day

How to Be a Better Person Day by Day.

I was searching for something the other day!


And I came across this! At first I was surprised to see it. But when I looked up these things I found there was more than I even dared to think about . What is even more interesting! Is that the fact that these are some the one’s that Even I use.,


The one on responsibility can be a big one to some people. But it’s about personal responsibility for growing and becoming who you want to be in your life not anyone else’s.


Down the list!


“Don’t expect instant results!” Change does come slowly. We all know! Nothing comes easy. But this is about us! And how we want to change and perhaps take on something better.


I think that there are people who are not  sure! If they can make any changes in their life because of how they were brought up. I now! I keep gong back to the days of “When they were growing up!” But it is true! There is either something their parents said/did! Or someone said/did or during that time. There is always residue/excess baggage in all our lives. We just were not taught how to get rid of it.


With me! I have met and encountered kids and adults (If they can be called that!) that have said/did stuff but those people are up and over!


I have said it before but it still true! The past is in the past! Why even bother talking about it? Or if you ever  meet them again. What good will it do? Nothing will ever change about it!


All you can do is learn from it, leave it where it is in the past and move on!
