If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all; So…

It’s getting harder and harder to bite my tongue these days. But I like to start the week off in a positive frame of mind and so I am just going to meditate and think happy thoughts!

The world seems like such a mean place these days, and I don’t want to contribute to the devolution of civility.

But there are times when enough is enough. And sometimes the bad guys have to be called out for a day of reckoning.

Words, when used responsibly, can become a great equalizer for those that have a legitimate wrong to expose.

Always keep in mind that what separates a rant from constructive criticism is whether or not a solution or resolution is proffered.

It is possible to evoke something positive from the negative with the correct frame of mind in place.

Although some days, it’s a lot harder to so!

It ishard to look past some of the stuff, and sometimes...you have to speak up.  ut, we need to know when to talk and when to keep quiet

Sounds like Monday might have started off on the wrong foot.

Richard- have to say I love what Ginny (#3) said.. say what you have to say as if it was being told to you.

Maybe biting ones tongue is a sign of maturity but there are times when you just want to (as we say in Texas) tell them how the cow ate the cabbage.  I have no idea what that means but that's what we say.

Some Monday's are like that for sure. I hold onto the belief that what comes around goes around and those bad guys will get there's... Yet, it does seem (through the media anyway) that some get away with it very nicely. I try not to get pulled into that internal argument because it'll take me to thoughts like, life ain't fair.

Now, when that happens, I conjur up that scene in the movie Independence Day, when Randy Quaid is flying  his fighter jet to crash it into the alien spacecraft, "In the words of our generation, Up Yours!"

I have to say your right on that...once the words come out you can't take it back.  People will forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel!
