Things That Matter

Things That Matter

Let's play a rating game today....and let's rate ourselves on what kind of person we think we are.  This will be fun  :-)
I'd say I'm a pretty good person down deep inside...I'm very unorganized,  rattle brained, the geezer calls it...I'm so sorry to say...But I manage to keep the house looking pretty good most of the time and I love to cook and see to my geezer and anybody else in the family that could use a hand and I'm pretty good about helping folks that I feel are sincerely trying but could really use a good food basket or whatever...and I don't believe anyone is perfect...so I guess on a scale of 1 to 10...I'd rate me a 7...and I think that's pretty doggone good...So now you rate YOUR self....and just hold that thought for a bit while you read on...

Cause now listen....Everything....EVERYTHING...we do...MATTERS!!!  Did you know that?  Absolutely EVERYTHING... "From that pizza we ate last night, to that look we gave our spouse or one of the kids..or that rude comment we made to one of them...to the church we attend...or the fact that we don't attend one...to the books we read or the television shows we watch...to the kind of clothes we even wear...ALL of that stuff...from the very small to the big things...they all matter....and do you know why? 

Well for one thing...the kind of diet we eat most often...determines how healthy or unhealthy we'll be or how we'll feel on any given day...What we eat for lunch and supper today...will determine how we're going to feel when we get up in the morning...ABSOLUTELY!!!  If you don't believe me...just do your own experiment and eat junk today and see how you feel in the morning...then all day tomorrow, eat very healthy and light and see how you feel the day after tomorrow...
And those stern looks and rude comments....they come out of our mouths so easily sometimes when we're so aggravated...but they do NOT go out of the hearts and minds of the person we've just embedded them into very easily...they usually stay there forever...sometimes blocked after a few days...but often times...they're there from that moment on...constantly gnawing away at the very core of that loved ones being....And those books you read or those television shows you watch when you think no one is looking.....well those things make up the deep core of who you really are.....

So do you understand?  WHO WE REALLY ARE....down deep inside....IS....determined by "What we will say and do and watch and read and where we will go....when we think no one will ever find out" What we will do or watch or where we will go when we think no one will ever know...is who we REALLY ARE.  Soooooo now rate yourself again...and how do you rate?  I'm still about a 7...how about you?   I could do BETTER...but I could never do worse....it just isn't in the make up of who I am down deep inside.  You couldn't hog tie a rope on a bad word and drag it out of my mouth...it just isn't going to happen...In my 66 years...I can very proudly say...I have never ever said one bad word...not even the crude words people use for their setter down places....Now I don't say that just to brag...I'm just telling you it IS POSSIBLE to never use bad language because "I"...President of the Dingbats Society of America...have never used bad language in my life....

I'm going no where with this blog today...that happens every once in a while....we were watching tv last night and someone on the show we were watching just said "WHAT matters?"  And my brain just started spinning...I wanted to yell to that goofy guy that EVERYTHING 'matters'.....and I don't think people stop to think about that very often....they just run around in limbo saying this and doing that and never stopping to think of the consequences of anything....even just a quarrel with your spouse...or something really cruel we may say to our kids when they're doing wrong and we're upset...

But since it's now 8:20am and my brain isn't clicking...I'm just going to wrap it up for today...hahaha And we'll meet back her tomorrow.....But now listen...since you DO KNOW now...that everything you do matters.....make use of that knowledge today and do something good....for yourself...your spouse...your kids....maybe a shut in......

I LOVE this quote:  "No one can go back and make a brand new start...but anyone can start today to make a brand new ending!" 

Peace and love from the canyon....this has been a bird's eye view of the world of the katydid and until next time...you are loved....
