Life's lessons: Quotes and Sayings

"advertising disclaimer"

I 'm writing this post because it is conceived out of the notion that we should laugh - and also that we should take time each day to smile, think, feel, and perhaps even cry. It's therapeutic and even important to our mental health. We need to take the time to be stimulated and motivated to smell the roses! And this stimulus doesn't have to come in an elaborate wordy way. I think too much time is wasted on long explanations when we can be short and to the point. As a matter of fact, each of us will be much better off if we always cut through the babbling rhetoric and stick to simple straightforward statements and principles of practical use.

Remember, we act like we think and talk.

Since my back surgery, I have had lots of time to think about many things in life. I have witnessed first hand about the way this world has people in it that I don't seem to relate to or if I try, it is me who is considered, the crazy one!

I'm sure you'll agree as you analyze individuals around you; there sure are a lot of mighty interesting, complicated, spacey folks out there!

I'm scared! I don't know whether the world is full of smart men bluffing or imbeciles who mean it! Am I being critical? Yes, because some people are not being authentically themselves. And perhaps I have no room to talk; I do like most had challenges growing up. In fact, sometimes I think, "if I could get myself in position, I'd give myself a kick in the rear!" A lot of us cover up who we really are and try to be too complicated and too cool; we try to be too open-minded.

“An open mind is all very well in its way, but it ought not to be so open that there is no keeping anything in or out of it. It should be capable of shutting its doors sometimes, or may it be found a little drafty.”
— ~Samuel Bulter said~

I know a few of you can relate to this. Think about it! When you see someone walking by you, you can hear the ocean in their ears. I have known great friends but let's face it sometimes the are wrapped too tight. And some just can't think beyond insights to widen their thinking. This is why I stress this point. We should shed our facades and strive to be intelligent, practical, and basic by looking for the simple truths in life.

Common sense is instinct - enough of it genius
— ~Said- Bernard Shaw

Let us, therefore, experience the wisdom in learning simple short mental meals. They prove to be true if you read the following statement: 

“The power of words - of great thoughts to quicken and motivate one’s life, is immeasurable.” 
— Robert Assigiolic:

After years of going to see a therapist, to understand how people show you a facade of them where it was only a ploy to hide the true person they truly are where I couldn't see it until I was seeing a new therapist that made me see beyond the way people tend to mislead you who or what kind of person they really are. I'm not implying that everyone isn't truly representing themselves as someone they're not but there is a percentage of people that do. As I look back on my life and how the person I was trying to be without even realizing it until now. There are many situations I could list them but it would be endless.

In the end, we all try to or unknowingly want others to see us as someone that fits into other people's ideal person to fit in or be liked. When we really should re-evaluate ourselves every so often to reassure we haven't forgotten that.
