Comparing yourself to others.

Being overly connected to technology

Taking things personally

Participating in drama

Living someone other's dream

Striving for perfection

Reliving the past

Worrying about the future

Not making self-care a priority

Taking life too seriously

Think On It Awhile If You Need To Understand What It's Saying to You

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil; God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

Heads Up - Postage Increase Coming

This may or may not have any bearing for you.  What with the growth of cell phone use and the Internet, more new technology coming on the market daily, there is much less use of United States mail service.  So as I said, it may mean nothing to you.  But the fact is that first class postage stamps will increase to $.55 for an ounce come January 27, 2019, a nickel increase.  I can't recall such an increase ever in the past as I've been using the "forever" stamps since they came about.  I have doubt many people know about this change in cost.

I still write a letter once in awhile and send out greeting cards on occasion, so I often run out of postage stamps. I buy a booklet of 20 each time, which means a dollar more leaving my pocket after the increase date.  So I will certainly take advantage and get more before the deadline and save myself a whole dollar.  If you are, by any chance reading this, please pass the word around to all those you know.

My thought is that the large increase is caused by the fact of so much internet and cell phone use, which is causing the postal service to lose much.  United States Postal Service is not subsidized by the government either. We know what happened to our newspapers!

Buy your stamps and mail off your packages quickly before January 27th!

You can bet your britches that S&H costs will rise up too with your next order of whatever from whomever, wherever. I can see an increase coming with so many things this year.  I no longer buy books from Amazon.  The company's worth has ridiculously become almost the
richest one on the planet, I do believe.

Thank heavens our gas prices in the US has decreased somewhat though; for how long is anyone's guess.

Government's Interference in Too Many Issues!

This is an important issue and should be addressed to change here in our country also.

Daily wasting tons of food  is a crime and a grave sin. This waste is far worse than ridiculous.

The Truth

There's more unhappiness caused in the world by people trying to change other people than anything else.
