Be Honest

Have you ever given someone your number, or met someone that you liked, but
then you realized that you only have "friend feelings" for them? Sometimes it's
hard to tell that person how you really feel, but you have to, or you'll both be

One day, a guy came to my house and he wanted to kiss me. I told him that I
only kissed at night, and he believed me. He came back that night, so I had to
be honest. I told him I only had friend feelings for him, and he didn't bother me

I know a girl who gave her number to a guy, and he called her for 15 years. She
was tired of him calling her, but she wouldn't say a word. The only reason he
stopped calling, was because she moved to another location.

You deserve to not be bothered by someone that you don't want, and the other
person deserves to know how you really feel.

Be Honest

Afraid to Dance?

I've watched Dirty Dancing twice this week, plus on other numerous occasions.
To me, dancing is a lot like life.

Do you stand against the wall afraid to dance? Are you terrified that you might
get up and make a fool of yourself? Or, do you dance and not worry about how
you appear to other people?

When it comes to life, you don't want to be so afraid to move that you don't
move at all. You don't want to be someone who never does what your heart tells
you to do, because you're scared.

You can't live your life being afraid, or you'll never accomplish anything that you 
want to accomplish. Get out on life's dance floor and move!

Love Your Color

When I hear someone say that they need to go to the tanning bed
(burning bed), I always say "You should be happy with your color;
that's the way you were born."

There was a time I wasn't happy with my color either. I used to want
to be lighter, because I have a sister who is a lot lighter than me. I'm
happy with my color now.

There are light people who want to be darker.
There are dark people who want to be lighter.
No matter your shade you should ...

Speak Up for Yourself

Yesterday, I spoke to my insurance agent, and he tried to talk me into adding more
costly items to my policy. I repeatedly told him no, and he had "reasons" why I should
say yes. The old me would have fallen for it, because the old me didn't have much
backbone. There have been times when not speaking up for myself was the wrong

Years ago, I had my tub replaced, and in the process the worker ripped part of the
wallpaper off of the wall. He also got blue paint on the ceiling. I didn't say word, but
I should have.

#1  Don't let someone talk you into something that you don't want to do.

#2  If you paid for a service and it wasn't good service... speak up.

Accepting Compliments

The other day I was talking to one of my pretty co-workers, and I couldn't
believe what she told me. She said that she felt ugly. She thought people were
lying to her if they gave her a compliment, and she said that compliments make
her uncomfortable. I found it so odd that she felt this way, but I figured she
probably wasn't the only one.

Here's a little poem for anyone who feels the way she does.

What makes someone ugly is an ugly attitude.
Bad words from their mouth and acting rude.
Compliments should make you feel good inside.
They aren't supposed to make you want to go hide.
A compliment is a positive expression.
I hope that you learned something good 
from this lesson.
