Remembering our Fallen Soldiers this Memorial Day 2017

The True meaning behind Memorial Day is to remember our “Fallen Soldiers”……this brings tears to my eyes but joy to my heart as these Soldiers are here at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center having beers with their Fallen Brothers from the Iraqi War……

I did not want to bother them but felt I needed to capture the moment as this is just one small way to remember and honour their Brothers in Arms…….USMC

There are numerous tributes to our fallen Soilders of every Branch that will NEVER be enough compared to their Ultimate Sacrifice but it is OUR duty as United States Citizens to Remember Them, Honor Them & to Teach our Youth about Them and their Sacrifices……Gone But NOT Forgotten!!!

I know that as a mother of 3 ….Navy, Air Force & a Marine I get choked up during the National Anthem and anything Military related!!  I was lucky enough to have my Father return home from Vietnam but many others did not make it.  THANK YOU to all of the Men & Women whom have paid the ultimate sacrifice!! God Bless You and May You Rest In Peace…….Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……….Robin Robinson

we ALL make mistakes……

We all make mistakes…..good mistakes, bad mistakes and everything in between.  Mistakes happen everyday, trust me I’m full of them!!  These mistakes as simple or complicated as they may be do not mean you or someone else is a bad person.  It simply means that you/they are human and mistakes are bound to happen from time to time.  Just take a deep breath, exhale and then let it out…. Laugh, cry or even scream for a minute or two and then…. Deep breath, exhale and if it isn’t a good mistake start thinking of a solution and how to correct it!!

Do NOT dwell on something that cannot be undone, it is a Mistake.  There’s always a solution or a different way to look at the mistake…….it’s okay, worse case scenario you/they know exactly what NOT to do again and it’ll make for a great story and laughs at some point later down the road!!  Although, sometimes I swear it’s Dejavu and something I’ve already done once before…..lol….mistakes happen, don’t be too hard on yourself or others and look at the bright side…..it could always be worse!!  Way Worse!!  LoL  Hope you have a wonderful non-bad mistake kind of day!! Big Hugs & Much Luv from me 2 U – Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson

Rise Above the Negatives, YOU Deserve to be Happy…..

Good Morning!!  I’ve has some deep thoughts as life has so many challenges for each and every one of us.

Things happen beyond our control, some are very painful and other things are just a part of life’s lessons learned as we grow and follow our life’s path.  Things happen…. Things change…. Things are sometimes complicated.  We all have different paths in life and we all see things from different points of view.  Life affects us ALL so very differently.  But, it is how we let it affect us, how we learn and grow from these things that often matter the most.

  • It is up to each of us Individually to figure out what’s best for ourselves at any given time.
  • It is up to each of us to learn from mistakes and to move forward.  It is up to each of us to forgive, not for those that have wronged us but for ourselves and our own inner peace.
  • It is up to each of us to change our own Paths to better ourselves and our lives.  It is up to each of us to learn and grow and to strive to be a better and happier person.
  • It is up to each of us to Make the Best out of the Lives we have……

Don’t lose yourself in dwelling on the negatives….. Don’t allow the opinions or negativity of others drag you down….. Rise above with your head held high, Be proud of who YOU are, Live each day to be better than the last, Let the worries and negatives of yesterday stay behind you and in the past…… 

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in 41 years and try to live by each and every day…. “You can’t always control what happens around you, but you CAN control how you let it affect you!!”  Live and Learn from mistakes and from others and don’t lose YOURSELF in worrying and trying to please others!  YOU are a wonderful person, YOU are stronger than you realize and YOU deserve to be happy!  Much Luv, Huge Hugs plus an extra one or two for anyone needing an extra one today!!  Smile, Deep Breath and Hope you all Have a Great Day……….  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……..Robin Robinson

When Life Gets You Down, Laugh And Remember The Things You Already Have

GOOD MORNING Sunshine!! 🌞 Oh what a Great Day today shall be!!  Once again I have awoken on the right side of the bed!!😉  I just cannot help it….lol…as it is actually the side of the bed that I sleep on!! 😉 Oh boy, you must be shaking your your head by now thinking “here she goes again”…  LoL  Well, if so…hahahahahah😂…..sometimes I just cannot help myself and at least I crack myself up even if no one else laughs!!  It’s the simple things, including the stupid simple things that we can laugh at that help us (me) to get through the day sometimes.

 

Don’t take life too seriously……Life isn’t meant to be “just” about responsibilities and materialistic things….  Life is meant to be “LIVED” and “Enjoyed”.  Life Happens, Life Changes in the blink of an eye, Life goes on with or without you so you might as well enjoy as much as you can.  Appreciate and be grateful for what you have while working for what you want…..  Live Life to Fullest…  NO Regrets, just lessons learned.  Have a wonderful day everyone…. Great Big Hugs & Much Luvin’ from me 2 U …. Thanks for Reading my Thoughts………Robin Robinson

We CAN however, control how we allow things to affect us each and every day!!  Each new day is a new beginning…….  So put a Smile on Your Face, Realize your Blessings and Make the Most of Each and Every Day!!  Big Hugs and Much Luv 2 U All and I hope you have a Wonderful Day!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson

Make Every Day As Good As Possible…….

Make every day as good as possible!!  I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!  Not every day is as good of a day as we had hoped but there is good in everyday if we just look and realize our blessings instead of always just our problems!!  img_9335

Look for the good in this week and beyond, allow yourself to see the positives that surround you!!  Life slips by quicker than we’d like and quicker than we realize, things always change and things don’t stay the same.  There are always blessings and things to be grateful for if you we just take a few moments to think, reflect, look and realize how fortunate we really are despite anything going on within our lives or whatever negatives are happening around us.  Hugs & Luv 2 U All.  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts………Robin Robinson
