People always show us by their actions, more so than their words . . .
Be in sync with the Universe . . .

What goes around comes around . . . ALWAYS . . .
We can be the teacher, and the student, at the same time . . .
Timing is everything, and we can't force something to happen before its time . . .
Listen to the Voice . . . When it tells us something isn't right, it usually isn't . . . When it tells us someone is bullshitting us, they usually are . . . The VOICE!
We are not always as important to another person as they are to us . . . It's just a fact . . .
Wearing something red is a good pick-me-up . . .
We often don't realize what the lesson is until much later . . .
When we screw up, recognize it, take responsibility, and if necessary, take the steps to make it right . . .
Too much thinking can be dangerous . . .
When I was twenty-one, I had a knee injury that necessitated a full leg cast for a few weeks . . . When the cast came off, I told my girlfriend, I don't need these crutches anymore!

Foreplay baby . . .
Never close the door to a person who has wronged us . . . They can change, we can forgive, and they may yet have a huge role to play in our lives . . .

Treat people with love and respect, and they'll usually respond in kind . . .
Everything is a teacher . . .
Smile and laugh baby!
Watching comedy videos on Youtube can be just the ticket to feeling better . . . Nothing like humor to get the endorphins pumping . . .
Besides our health, the most important thing we have is our attitude . . .
Spirituality and assertiveness are completely compatible . . .
And finally . . . People always remember how we make them feel . . . Make them feel special, and they'll love us . . . Make them feel taken for granted, and they'll eventually leave us . . .
Life is beautiful!!
Peace and love . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
