On The Bricks

March 27, 2017

March is almost over and I’m so confused. I have to turn the air conditioner on when I go home because the house is so hot. Then in the morning it is so cold, I need to turn the heater on. How inconsistent. How wasteful. How irritating. Same thing in the car. Heater in the morning when driving to work. Air conditioner when driving home after work. No wonder we’re all confused.
Saw a red tulip of the neighbors had bloomed. Spring really is here. I guess it is. Can’t promise about tomorrow. Wasn’t it about 90 degrees plus the day after the official last day of winter? Made me laugh.

Read these words recently that are great to live by:

Live beneath your means.
Return everything you borrow.
Stop blaming other people (be a doer, not a blamer, and find out what is happening at the state capitol at the Chamber’s Eggs and Issues at 7 am on April 7 at the Ambassador. Free breakfast.)
Admit it when you make a mistake.
Give clothes you don’t wear to charity (drop them off at the Methodist Clothing Ministry).
Do something nice and try not to get caught.
Listen more – talk less (and dance on … at the Senior Citizen’s Dance on April 15 from 7 – 10 pm, 515 NE 15th).
Every day take a 30 minute walk (maybe you should sign up to walk in the April 1 Guymon High School Color Run … call Jennifer Reynolds for more information).
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
Be on time.
Don’t make excuses (get out and help with the community clean – up on April 22. Call 338-6246 for more information).
Don’t argue.
Get organized.
Be kind to people.
Let someone cut in ahead of you in line (at the Lifeway Indian Taco Dinner in the Methodist Enrichment Center on April 7 in the evening).
Take time to be alone.
Be humble.
Realize and accept that life isn’t fair.
Know when to keep your mouth shut.
Go an entire day without criticizing anyone.
Learn from the past (take part in the Dinosaur Skeletons and Fossils program at the First Christian Church on April 6, 7, and 8).
Plan for the future (attend the Chamber General Membership lunch meeting on April 3 at the Ambassador).
Live in the present.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
It’s all small stuff.

I love these words of wisdom. Let’s all try to get better at doing them!

See you on the bricks!
