There is so much anger, resentment, and grudges here and everywhere, it is absolutely demoralizing. People ... when are you going to just simply chose to be happy and let go of the petty stuff?

Right here is the theme of my morning chronicle. Go get yourself a cup of coffee, you need it as I do and let's get started

Good morning Everybody ...

There is so much anger, resentment, and grudges here and everywhere, it is absolutely demoralizing. People ... when are you going to just simply chose to be happy and let go of the petty stuff?

Right here is the theme of my morning chronicle. Go get yourself a cup of coffee, you need it as I do and let's get started ...

What is your problem ... ...

When it comes to a broken contract or the law having been broken, determining blame is important. When it comes to most other things in life, finding blame is .. well ... it's often a waste of time and precious effort.

Yea, ok, it's matters who's to blame but please ... are you trying to tell me that there isn't something out there much more important than who's to blame?

Punishing those who are to blame for petty things does not undo what has been done. The time and effort you put into building a federal case out of "who stole my Cheerios" is preventing you from moving forward and seeing the bigger picture.

What is the bigger picture?

I'm glad you asked.

In the case of You and the stolen Cheerios. How does the defendant plead? Defendant replies: Guilty. Me: Ok

Now what? You happy now? Are you satisfied? No? Why not? You found out who done it! You don't have the Cheerios? They can't be returned because they were eaten. So what now? You going to harbor resentment toward the Cheerios thief or let go, forgive and move on.

What's it going to be?

Sometimes we hold on to old resentments for so long they become familiar. So familiar in fact you cling like it was a life vest as if you were going drown.

You know what? You wouldn't need a life vest is you would just let go of everything that was weighing you down.

Be brave. Let go of the blame. Forgive, let go, and be free.

Move to unfamiliar territory.

Yes, it's unfamiliar but there you can experience new and unexpected things. You might be a little uncomfortable and a little sad leaving your old familiar ball and chain. Rest assured, you'll soon get over it and you'll even be thankful you don't have to carry it around with you anymore.

Plenty of Cheerios left back in the box. Why fret over the one that got away? Friendships and relationships should be more important than a Cheerios. Don't you agree?

Something to think about.

Here's my theory ...

It's better to make progress on new things than it is to fight old battles. If they're old battles ... right there that should give you a clue.

Something fixable doesn't become an old battle.

Instead of becoming obsessed about "who dun it" and making the perp pay, lighten up the load and move yourself to where you'll be free to live.

You best options are found looking ahead -- never looking back.

Time for the song of the day!

Before I go .... I am leaving you with a song I hope will inspire you, If nothing else, put a smile on your face and put a beat to you feet

We Are The Champions - Queen

I wish you all a good day and be good to one another. Don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given for everyone to do so.

And one more thing .... You know the drill ....

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