Another great one from Dream Big, Dream Often. Are you guilty of this?
I am a reactor. I receive input and I immediately react. When I was working retail, corporate would send down directives that would interfere with my daily routine or plan and I would get upset. I would stomp to my manager’s office and complain about the interruption and pout. Then once my venting session was over I would get the job done and move on.
My personality is like that. I react immediately then get over it and move on. I guess I need to purge all of that frustration out of my mind and body so it doesn’t eat me alive throughout the day. I have moments when I turn a mole hill into a mountain.
This got my little peanut brain churning and contemplating why I do some of the things I do. Why do I make small situations out to be more serious than they…

Such an important message from Me-Who Am I?
There will come a day when there will be no more clouds to see, no more leaves to touch and no more flowers to smell.
There will come a day when the last hug will be felt, the last smile will be seen and the last “I love you” will be heard.
There will come a day when there will be no more days to come.
Be present. Live in the now. Appreciate the moment.
Great post from https://mewhoami.wordpress.com/.very thought provoking read. Do you agree or disagree and what is the solution?
No situation we went through as children ever gave us the right to behave badly. No matter what was going on, we had basic expectations to uphold and never were we granted free rein to behave uncontrollably. At all times we had to be respectful and courteous to others. If we were not, then we would be disciplined.
It was our responsibility to learn how to control our emotions and not allow them to cause us to make foolish decisions. We had to control our anger and our desires to lash out. Was it always easy? No! It was difficult and I failed a lot. I had quite the temper and it took years for me to learn how to control it. But I knew that if I lost it, then there would be consequences to pay.
Because of our parents’ rules, we were very careful to behave the best…

This is a beautiful post! I am so grateful I took the time to read it today.
Sit with me a while.
I’ve caught your attention, fleetingly, in between the everything-else of your world. What were you just doing? What’s next? What’s been hooked in the nets of your memory today? Which moments stand out?
I want you to remember them, one at a time. Hold them gently in the cupped palms of recollection, then give them wings and let them go. Not because they don’t matter, but because I want you here. With me.

Another great post from Dream Big Dream Often. Will you venture out and try something new?
Several years ago I remember having a conversation with a friend about food. What types of exotic foods we had eaten, which were our favorites and what we disliked. I recall my part of the conversation being short as it has only been in recent years that I have moved off of the southern delights of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, fried okra and corn; on the cob or off!
But what is so vivid in my memory for some reason is my friends challenge to me to step out and try new things. And it was out of that conversation that I realized that I loved broccoli. I had spent the majority of my adult life explaining to people when presented with the veggie that I didn’t like it. I can’t recall why I didn’t like broccoli nor why I had never tried it since I was a kid.

Human Interest posted this a little while ago and we have debated whether we believe it’s true. What do you think and why?
