Follow the Rules

Sometimes Follow the Rules

You might not agree with them, but sometimes, when all is said and done, it really is best to follow the rules.

Maybe that rule is to not mow, maybe you are supposed to wear a mask, what about your seatbelt?

Yes, there are rules, and sometimes, for the benefit of all, and the benefit of you, you should follow them.

Take it Slow

Go ahead, take it slow.

On land turtles seem to go at, well, a turtle’s pace. We all know about the story of the tortoise and the hare, how slow and steady let the turtle win the race against the spastic rabbit.

Yes, there are times when immediacy is necessary, but most of the times you can take your time. Being frantic doesn’t make you fast.

Sometimes you have to looker a little closer to see the scary things out there. Other times the scary things are staring you right in the face.

The key is to take a minute to really look. Don’t be surprised by the dangers, be ready, and do something to make a change in your path if you need to.

Don’t Be Afraid

Don't be afraid to come out of your comfort zone.

Many times we get stuck. We feel like life is passing us by.

It’s okay to switch things up every now and then. Ask for a discount at the coffee shop, smile more, say hello to a stranger. If it feels uncomfortable maybe give it a try, you might be surprised a the result.

Take a Minute

Take a Minute

Times are stressful these days. We might be cooped up at home or even social distancing at the beach, but it’s okay to take a few minutes from your day for yourself.

Go ahead, enjoy a sunset, a sunrise, and remember life is there for us to live!

Use Your Creativity

There Are Creative Solutions for Everything

I do wish this picture were clearer, it is one that I love, but we have to take the memories how we can get them at times.

Yes, there are times that Milo likes to pretend he is a hairdresser, and it’s funny. These days I could use a haircut, and at times I’m thinking I could give Milo some shears to just take care of that.
