saved a life
People continually pass judgment on one another. You see it in everyday life, in movies, on the internet and in public places. I have never understood this. What is it that makes people think that it is acceptable? In the workplace, the workmates pass judgment on a variety of things. They make remarks about their co-workers clothes, shoes, hair, and overall appearance. The criticize their food choices particularly if they bring their own food. I have never been a person to eat take away at the office. I always brought my lunch. I really didn’t care what others thought. While they are so busy passing judgment, they were neglecting their work. I saw a cute story about a set of twins. One twin was quite popular and had her own group. Her sister was quiet and shy. The popular twin and her friends continually would pass judgment on the shy sister. They made fun of her clothes and one day even threw a tomato at her dress. Their mom had passed and the dad heard the two girls arguing one day as the popular twin and her friends had cut up the quiet girl’s dress that she had made for prom. He said it was about time they knew the real score. The shy twin was born healthy and vibrant. The popular twin was failing. The doctors said there was nothing they could do but a nurse had a better idea. She put the healthy twin in with her and before long she began to thrive as well. The dad said, “So you see, your sister saved your life.” After that the popular twin realized the value of her sister. The next day they went to school together and no one was allowed to pass judgment, criticize or do anything negative to her sister. A valuable lesson. Always appreciate people and never pass judgment on anyone. You could someday be in their shoes. In the Good Gus series no one was allowed to criticize anyone. It would have been negative reading and a bad example. The series is online at Kindle with a few books on Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” is full of characters who thought nothing of passing judgment on their benefactors or their shared heirs. The book is online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
Everything is possible if you put your mind to it regardless of your age. A quote from Audrey Hepburn said, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” Col. Sanders started Kentucky Fried Chicken when he was in his sixties. P. G. Wodehouse wrote this books until he passed away in his nineties. Age is insignificant. Many younger people started businesses that turned into multi-million dollar or Euro companies that have expanded the globe. In our everyday life, we all get overwhelmed. It can be new job, a new family, the lack of money and trying to further one’s education. It can make you feel that you can’t succeed. However, if you thing about it, if you put it in perspective, everything is possible. On the news today, in Southern California, there was an article about a girl who was in the process of being kidnapped. Another women saw the adult forcing the child along the sidewalk. She was driving her car at the time. She rolled down her window and pretended to be the girl’s mother. She called the police and the kidnapper was arrested. This young girl was sure her life was over and yet another Good Samaritan saved her life. It proved that the savior was a hero something she never believed or thought possible. When we try new things, we simply must remember to believe in ourselves and that anything and everything is possible. In the Good Gus series, everything was possible was an underlying theme. In book four, “Johnny the Cat and Bronco Ride that Bull,” Jimmy Ray believed that it was possible for him to ride a bucking bronco. You will have to read the story to see how it all works out. The series is available on Kindle worldwide. If you are feeling down or unhappy because everything seems to be falling apart, take a moment to rethink and recognize that you can change it because everything is possible. “Misplaced Trust” is an ideal book for a quick break. It is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
