You Got To Make It!

I liked this sticky note over this nice ladies desk:

You do not find the happy life.

You make it!

Too many people seem to wait for miracles, like manna from Heaven to give them what they need or want. 

They don’t realize that G-d has gifts us what we need (including strength and determination) to work towards these things ourselves. 

We are not the Israelites stuck in the barren desert for 40 years that we need it to rain manna. 

Of course, it’s nice every once in a while when a miracle shows up and we are given an extra hand (or maybe even a full arm). 

But day-to-day, we have to at least try to be self-reliant–as well as work with others–to work towards our goals and fulfill our missions in life. 

You got to make it happen if you want it bad enough.  πŸ˜‰

Social Media and Life Guidance

Thought this sign could really apply to lot’s of people’s bad behavior, but also to their posts on social media:

Today is the Yesterday you will be embarrassed about Tomorrow. 

It’s good to always consider tomorrow (or the future) when you do or say something. 

What may seem like a good idea today may put you in very bad stead another day and under closer, clearer inspection. 

Think about the consequences for tomorrow and stop the stupid stuff today, online and in real life.  

That is if you care about your long term image and reputation. πŸ˜‰

Flags and Rugs, Odd Combo Platter

What an odd combo.

We sell Flags and Rugs

Maybe like Michelle Obama said: 

When they go low [with rugs], we go high [with flags].

Oh, that’s what she meant!Β Β 

If the store ever expands, they can add:

And we sell everything in between (like furniture).

Low, high, it’s all making me a little dizzy today. πŸ˜‰

Don’t Follow Haters and Liars

I liked this sign:

Truth does not mind being questioned. 

A lie does not like being challenged. 

This seems like truth to me!

People who push an agenda and their propaganda never like to discuss it or answer questions about it. It’s usually prejudice in some way and they just want to ram it down people’s throats. 

Questioning and shedding light on things that don’t seem right is part of our moral and civic duty.  

Of course, the haters and liars would rather that we just accept the falsehoods they are peddling like stupid sheep who blindly follow them down the road to perdition. πŸ˜‰

Remember To Always Be Kind

Nice sign on the electrical pole, reminding us to always:

Be πŸ’— Kind

What kind?

The kind that has compassion on others, cares and love them, and does what’s right. 

That’s really the only kind worth being! πŸ˜‰

A Sign To Tell Us This

Wow, these days we need a sign to tell us this:

I am a man.

And I would imagine there is a corollary one to announce if you’re a woman.

If people can’t tell the difference anymore is that a good or bad thing?

Maybe it’s good from an equality and respect standpoint, but also bad in terms some people being confused by it.

Reminds me ofΒ Crocodile DundeeΒ when he had to do a hand check to figure things out.

Umm, that’s not gonna work in real life!  πŸ˜‰

Motif For The U.S. Economy

This seems like it could be a major theme of the U.S. economy.Β 

“Buy Now, Pay Later!”

And then…

“Foreclosure”

You can’t borrow infinitely.

It eventually has to be repaid. 

Where will the money come from?  

Print more.

Worth less!  πŸ˜‰

Climbing Up, Falling Down

Thought this was insightful.


All paths up are different.


All paths down are the same. 

Climbing up is challenges and we all have to find our determination, strength, and skill to make it up rung after rung on the ladder of life.


Falling down is when the sh*t hits the fan and the walls come crumbling down and we freefall into the abyss.


The key as we usually learn early in life when we take our first falls is to quickly get back up (on the horse). 


Life is never just smooth sailing.


It’s not meant to be. 


You wouldn’t learn or grow if it was. 


Be prepared for the occasional fall from grace, and get your tushy back in the saddle and ride again.  πŸ˜‰
