What the....?!?!?!?

Do you ever wonder why people have aneurysms? Well, Kim Possible, a good friend of mine once suggested that people have aneurysms because they see something that catches their attention and they wonder did anyone else see the same thing. This catchy site is so mind boggling that they find themselves wondering for years and years if anyone else was able to witness this incidence. You know, things that make you saw, "What the...?!?!?!".
For fashionistas, it may be someone wearing white boots in the dead of winter in a non-fashionable way, because it can be done when done correctly. WHAT THE....?!?!?
It could be a crazy man walking down the street BUTT NAKED in the middle of the day. WHAT THE...?!?!?!
Or it could be the plumber or roofer, in my case, not just revealing his crack but his whole behind hanging out of his pants while he is working. I mean really, do you not feel your entire behind being exposed to 37 degree weather? WHAT THE...?!?!?!
Some of these aneurysm causing moments can be avoided with the advancement of technology and the invention of camera phones. I, myself, have been able to avoid several aneurysms by taking pictures and emailing them to my friends so that I can be assured that someone else has witnessed the same foolishness that I have. However, aneurysm causing moments cannot be totally avoided with the help of technology but you can rest assured that someone else saw the exact same thing that you saw and uttered the exact same words...."WHAT THE.....?!?!?!"

Letting Go

It's important to realize that no matter how much you care about a person, when you feel like you are the only one who cares, let it go. It may hurt but open your eye to see the people around you that love you and concentrate on enjoying them and giving them the love they deserve instead of wondering what you did to make that one jerk treat you so badly.
Even though you may feel like you are losing someone, God has sent someone to replace the void you think will be there when you let go of the hurtful relationship. Enjoy what you have instead of trying to force something that isn't going to work out. You'll feel better about it in the end.
After all, God doesn't make mistakes and it is not our place to question. We must have faith and accept things as they are because honestly we may never know why and we are probably better off not knowing.

Growing closer to God should change you. Period. The process should make you think differently, which in turn changes the way you talk and act. It changes the decisions you make and how you respond to people.
In general, you become more understanding and are more likely to put yourself in the other person's shoes before you react. It's hard, at first. Not just because it's a process of change but also because the people who knew you way back when are going to throw the old you in your face. Most of the time it won't be on purpose. But don't get offended or take it personal. Put yourself in their shoes. Just take it as a compliment, remind yourself how far you've come, and smile. Remember, the changes have not gone unnoticed. If no one else notices, God does.
It's funny because people don't remember exactly what you said or did to them but they do remember how you made them feel. So pause for a second before you react, think about where the other person is coming from. Try to be more understanding because, believe it or not, everyone has a story.

Sometimes we are put in a situation that we really aren't too fond of thinking that it's temporary. Only to find that we have to deal with for a little longer than we planned. That's when we think up little scams to try to get out of it but they never work. God never puts us in a situation we can't handle. Remember what your mother told you when you were failing algebra in high school, "What doesn't kill you will make you stronger" and "You'll be thankful that you did it later". It sounds good but while you're in the midst of a hard time, that's not exactly what you want to hear. No one likes a complainer. I am the first person to tell someone to change what they don't like or shutup and deal with it if they aren't going to do anything about it.
Even when you have your strongest game face on, it's okay to let your guard down and CRY. In private, or course. Or maybe even on the shoulders of your confidant. If you don't vent, you WILL explode. And that is never good. Crying doesn't fix the problem but you will feel better that you let your frustrations out. Then wipe your tears, brush your shoulders off, and keep it moving. Now you can think clearly about how you are going to make the changes that you need to.
