Good Morning Monday This is how it's going to be this week!! Like it or leave it



why try to change people

I tried to control others once when I was younger in my own inimitable way  BUT now it's their choice!!

If your tendency is to try and change other people, take some time to explore why you feel the need to do so.

 We paint people with a broad brush—some are like us, sharing our opinions and our attitudes, while others are different. Our commitment to values we have chosen to embrace is often so strong that we are easily convinced that our way is the right way. We may find ourselves frustrated by those who view the world from an alternate vantage point and make use of unusual strategies when coping with life's challenges. However ardently we believe that these people would be happier and more satisfied following our lead, we should resist the temptation to try to change them. Every human being has been blessed with a unique nature that cannot be altered by outside forces. We are who we are at any one point in our lives for a reason, and no one person can say for certain what another should be like.

The reasons we try to change one another are numerous. Since we have learned over time to flourish in the richness of lives we have built, we may come to believe that we are qualified to speak on behalf of the greater source. The sum total of our knowledge will never compare to what we do not know, however, and our understanding of others’ lives will forever be limited. The potential we see in the people who are a part of our lives will never be precisely the same as our own, so we do these individuals a disservice when we make assumptions about their intentions, preferences, and goals. Our power lies in our ability to accept others for all their quirks and differences and to let go of the need to control every element of our existence. We can love people for who they are, embracing their uniqueness, or we can love them as human beings from afar.

Your ability to influence people may grow more sophisticated because others sense that you respect their right to be themselves, but you will likely spend more time gazing inward, into the one person you can change: yourself.

I mentor whO I aM AND HOPE THAT OTHERS YOUNGER, MAY FOLLOW

a fair to go to this week

                                      Assurance of life




“cheer cheer “ they banter as I open my eyes every morning
There they are dancing on the  calliandra bough outside my window
Scarlet cardinals rivaling the rufescent powder puff bush.
”cheer cheer” they say and their wondrous
message to me is that of nature and life  and I am forever grateful  skessler 1- 24-13

I am grateful for an easy agenda

Beginning of the year due to faltering health I decided to cut back even more than the paltry amount I do
