There is a big difference between a simple answer and an easy answer. To many that is the same but it really isn't. Allow me to explain

Good Morning Everyone ...

You know, I've had a lot of decisions to make lately. Hard ones. I was wishing for easy answers and the more I was looking for easy, the more frustrated I was getting. So this morning's message was inspired by this little bout.

There is a big difference between a simple answer and an easy answer. To many that is the same but it really isn't. Allow me to explain.

Simple answers are usually authoritative and practical but may demand some work. Easy answers are usually very appealing, not very effective and can possibly be dangerous.

Here's what I mean:

You want to lose weight. The simple answer would be: get regular exercise and have a more balanced nutritional diet. That is simple right? Just a little difficult to do. It works though!

Ok, now the easy answer. You want to lose weight? No problem. Take this pill. Eat whatever you want. No need to exercise. Very appealing because there's no work required. Only thing is it probably won't work.

It's easy to spot an easy answer because it tells you what you want to hear. It might not make any sense but if you want it bad enough, you can convince yourself into believing it. We've all been there, so you know I'm right. Most times we end up kicking our own butt for being so stupid lol

So, when faced with the choice of choosing to hear the simple answer or easy answer, you can just about always bet that the best answer is the simple answer. It may not be what you want to hear but it is probably what you need to do.

Ok ... so here's what I need to do. I need to wish you all a good day and be on my way lol.

Have a beautiful day friends. Be good to one another and don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given to everybody to do so.

And 1 more thing . . .

SMILE! . . . You're on life's candid camera!
