IT AIN'T WHAT YOU EAT,IT'S THE WAY HOW YOU CHEW IT
Do you think life is fair? Well, I don't! Maybe fair is only in the eye of the beholder but Ive seen time and time again things that just don't sit too well with my sense of fairness. Why do good people get taken advantage of by those who just dont give a damn about anyone else but themselves? Why do people who treat others in a fair and unbiased way get trampled on by egotistical people who think they are always right? Why do people who place their complete trust in others to do the right thing get knocked down to the ground repeatedly? Why do law abiding peaceful folks fall prey to the thugs who rob cheat and steal? Why do so called businessmen that cheat their customers get away with it while the customer is the one who suffers? Why do the thieves and cheats live a life filled with riches while the honest man barely gets by? I sure don't have the answers to these questions and doubt if you do either. But one thing I do know is no matter what others throw into our lives it is entirely up to us as to how we "chew and digest" those things. Shall we allow them to turn us into a bitter person who just withdraws from society and become a crusty old fart or do we continue to treat others as we want to be treated and even when we get shafted have enough courage and love inside our hearts to forgive and continue to try and be the very best human being we can? That choice is the one that will either help us to grow in Spirit or to become just one more "victim" of life's circumstances. My hope and wish for each of you wonderful people is that you will always be able to call upon that inner strength when "bad" things happen and that you will continue to be a kind caring and loving person who brings sunshine into this often times darkened world. Keep the faith no matter how many times you see injustices and remember It ain't what you eat, its the way how you chew it. "HUGS" to all!
