A Few Observations


Day after day I live life, and every time I have an internal running commentary going on. Of course, that would take far too long, far too many pages, and much better memory than what’s inside this wacky head to be able to post; and I’d worry for your sanity afterwards anyway. However, I decided this time to do something different. Today I’m going to share some of the observations I’ve made…because we all know that flooding Facebook newsfeeds is a good way to get yourself taken off of them. 😉

Pretty sure most Americans have no idea what life and love are, and without realizing it, live the last line of the picture above.

Water always tastes best after something sweet, especially if the something sweet is creamy or chocolatey.

Chocolate is like a Band-Aid, only much better and it doesn’t last as long.

When flooded with overwhelming and depressing contemplations, make sure to get a good night’s sleep-it really helps to clear the head.

All drivers on the road are out to get you, and your own vehicle doesn’t want to obey. Drive accordingly. (Make sure you always know what’s around you and what they’re going to do)

Brakes can work surprisingly well when needed in tight situations, but even a light trailer majorly increases the stopping distance.

Having a full-time job with long hours is much like school-you’re tired at the end of the day and have no time.

If a dessert tastes good, it will be loaded with fat and sugars, so don’t ask.

Never take your credit card, debit card, or cash with you if you don’t want to buy things you don’t need…especially food. They’ll be safe at home.

Over the last generation or so, America has fine-tuned the me-syndrome, along with solidifying the claim that entertainment will fix it…and we wonder why we have problems.

You can only ignore how downhill everything is always going so long…but the flipside is heaven becomes more desirable.

Music has become the channel of this generation.

Most things you do on a daily basis are useless if you really start to think about it…if you do start thinking you’d better make sure you have really good reasons.

It is automatic to defend ourselves and justify our actions, internally and externally, every moment of every day. It takes concentrated effort not to do this and the power of God.

Everybody has at least one outlet for their emotions and reactions/responses to life. Try to make sure it won’t adversely affect other people.

You think you understand those around you? Think again.

People are only in your life for a very short time. Treasure every moment, take nothing for granted, forgive easy and be slow to anger.

If it’s good, it will be hard coming and will require something you don’t naturally want to give.

A woman will always believe she is right, and there is no convincing her otherwise unless there is already planted a small seed of doubt inside. Using this knowledge to your advantage requires great skill and the ability to read a person’s true mood, along with a light understanding of their thinking processes. If they give in easy, most likely you just lost something big you don’t yet realize.

People are best manipulated when they are emotional. Be careful.

We shelter ourselves too much-open the windows.

The body is very easily damaged, but has a remarkable way of healing itself if treated right.

Home remedies really do work.

This country is big on twisting words and trying to keep the truth from people…and no one cares.

It is amazing how psychologically trained we are. We convince ourselves of things without even realizing it, even if it isn’t true.

Movies can be wrong. Rainy days aren’t for sad times, they’re for sleeping in, napping, playing in, or worshipping in.

A friend is like a complex dessert in the course of life, sweet, savored, yet over way too soon.

We take a lot of privileges as rights.

The government isn’t perfect…and neither are the people.

Bosses expect perfection from their employees, and they do have bad days too. They didn’t get their job by being perfect. Do your best anyway and learn from criticism.

Sleep is one of the best parts of the day. Beware though, not enough and too much can have catastrophic results.

People are impatient, so the market caters to that impatience, which makes the customers more impatient. It’s a never-ending downward spiral.

There used to be a time where people would think before they said something. Now they don’t for fear they won’t be heard if they don’t respond right away, so people don’t listen if they don’t hear a response immediately.

People hear things differently. Everyone has an internal filter. Never assume the hearer understood what you’re saying.

There is always something new to learn. Be open to the possibility that you’re not always right.

People have limited time and most people don’t read long things.

If there is even the slightest thought in your head that you can procrastinate something, you most likely will.

Don’t be afraid to take a break every so often from everything and just reflect.

If you stuck with me, I’m impressed and you have my thanks. Now go out and live life to the fullest…not for today, but with eternity in your eyes. The Christian life is the most freeing there is.
