Friday Dare…..try to be less negative and more positive….I Dare You!!

Trying to help you start your day off with a Smile and some positive thoughts, plus it being Friday might help too!!  There’s so much negativity and drama constantly surrounding us….but, with the desire for better WE can choose, WE can decide and WE can change some of it little by little within our own lives and the lives of others around us by simply choosing to be happier!!  Ya ya, you may be thinking this sounds impossible, what can you, just one person do? But….ALL things are possible especially as more people join in!!

Would you prefer to contribute and spread negativity, drama, hatred & bitterness or would you prefer to contribute and spread love, smiles, laughter, positivity, encouragement & happiness?!?!  The decision is yours.  Sometimes, despite our right to Freedom of Speech it is better to bite our tongue and take the higher road if we cannot say anything nice, positive and to simply avoid contributing to the negative fuel of others especially those whom will never listen to different points of views objectively.  Sometimes, we should choose to save and share some of our words and thoughts with those we can have a constructive conversation with rather than a destructive one.

I write these words with a heavy heart for the people of our Great Country, the United States of America……

My Thoughts ~ I write these words with a heavy heart for the people of our Great Country, the United States of America.  Maybe you agree, maybe you disagree, maybe my words will make you think a little differently ~ these are my thoughts:

So much negativity and drama going on around us in this World and within our own Country.  It deeply saddens me, upsets me and disappoints me in many ways but yet I cannot live my Life with negativity and hatred, I cannot live in fear and I just cannot let it consume me.  Yet, it saddens me greatly at how it is affecting so many who don’t realize it and who thrive on the negativity and continue to push segregation from within……we are ALL Human Beings none of us is better than the other!!

I wish more people could learn to agree to disagree and yet still get along.  What has happened in the PAST is in the Past and there’s nothing anyone can do to change it, it’s our History.  You have to learn from it and move forward and attempt to make things better for yourself and those around you!!  Dwelling on the negatives of yesterday eats at your soul and draws more negative energy rather than producing positives.  Destroying parts of History and Separating ourselves from within is such a sad negative.

I completely agree that we ALL have the right to Freedom of Speech but yet when it comes to Patriotism and Respect I feel it trumps it.  There’s a time and a place for it, a positive and constructive way to do it……I would never sit down in a Court of Law when asked to rise as the judge enters, I would never stay sitting down while others stand for the Canadian Anthem or any other Country out of respect let alone my OWN County!!! Out of knowing and understanding a small fraction of our History, the Sacrifices and the Meanings behind why these have been traditions for so long, for knowing that many have made and still DO make sacrifices and that so many have and still are giving the ultimate sacrifice every day.  These Sacrifices allow us to continue to have our Freedoms, the Freedoms in which we still have today that many others around the World do not.

We ALL have a Heart, we ALL Bleed Red.  Our ethnicity, our skin color, our religious beliefs, what our ancestors did, what our parents did, what we ourselves have done in the past and who we voted for or support shouldn’t matter.  We are ALL the same on the inside.  We need to learn to get along just as we teach our kids to do with their siblings and others at school, as we even teach our dogs to get along with other dogs and cats…..why should we accept anything less from ourselves?!?!  SHAME on us all for allowing this to happen!!

In the end, in the final end we ALL die the same….our Hearts stop beating and we go cold….we go cold as our souls leave our bodies…..how does this NOT prove that we are all the same, that we are indeed equals?!?!  Stop punishing each other because of our differences and because of what happened years ago….

We should be Uniting and becoming stronger as a Nation instead of this pissing match of who’s better than whom or who’s ancestors had it worse so therefore deserve more and so on……  We are ALL human beings, we are all equals and if we started acting like equals instead of dividing ourselves like grade schoolers afraid of getting “Cooties” from the other girls or boys we would become a much stronger and happier America once again. UNITED States of America needs to stay “United”.

If you were in a car crash right in front of me and you needed help I would NOT sit idle by and just watch because YOU were of a different color or because you supported a different candidate or because you had different religious beliefs or because you were a person who Serves & Protects or even because you were a prison inmate on a transport bus who may have murdered someone!!  I would rush to your side and still help you as best I could no matter what because I have a heart, just like you do!!!  I believe we are ALL equals and deserve to be treated with Kindness, Compassion & Love no matter what the circumstances just as so many Men & Women of our Great Country do every single day in many varying capacities!!!  We don’t have to be born here, we don’t have to have the same religious or political beliefs, we don’t have to have the same skin color or same ancestry DNA to be an American, that’s what makes this Country so Great!

I am NOT writing this to start a debate or go back and forth with anyone…..this is NOT intended to start ANY arguments about different beliefs and ways of thinking.  This is MY Freedom of Speech and my thought as of late.  So Please, out of respect if you wish to leave a negative comment, wish to debate or if I simply pissed you off and you want to let me know it…..Please DON’T do it on here.  Yes, you too have Freedom of Speech rights, I’m simply requesting you address your grievances with me directly and elsewhere. Thank You….     Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson ~ a Proud American Military Mom 8-23-17

It is just another day, good or bad……

Good Morning!!  No matter what today may bring you, it is simply just another day.  So when you are struggling or when someone else is being grumpy and rude towards you remember that it is just another day and you may NOT know what their struggles are just as they likely do NOT know yours so try to be compassionate and considerate to others as there is always someone with far worse troubles than you at any given time……

  • For some, today is just another day.
  • For some today may be a little tough, tears may run and memories may overflow as they say Goodbye.
  • For some it is just another day.
  • For some it may be full of joy, laughter and good times as they say Hello.
  • For some it is just another day.

It Is Just Another Day, good or bad.  I simply want to say “Hello and Good Morning” to you ALL and I hope you have as good of a day as possible.  Big Hugs & Lots of Luv 2 U All  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson

Life…Precious Life is taken for Granted by us all! Hug your loved ones, say “I Love You” and Live with NO Regrets…. (Words today from a heavy heart.)

~Time goes by…words go unsaid…arguments go unsettled…forgiveness and agreeing to disagree doesn’t always happen despite the love that is still between you…hugs and I Love You’s fade away because you think they’ll always be there or because you’re too stubborn and think it shows weakness…many words go unspoken that would heal your heart and possibly there’s as well…things go unsaid because you just assume they already know how special they are and that you assume they know you love them because you do……

~Life…Life is all too often taken for granted by us ALL!!!  Hug your babies tight and often…tell your parents or those that raised you that they are special and that you appreciate all the sacrifices they have endured…tell your friends and family how much they mean to you as it is often them whom you lean on and look to for guidance off and on throughout the years and vice versa…tell your spouse or significant other I Love You everyday followed by a kiss or two whenever possible…..

~NO REGRETS…. Live with NO REGRETS towards your Loved Ones!  I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it…”regrets just eat away at your heart and soul”.  Fix the Wrongs…..Mend the Hearts…..Say I’m Sorry…..Forgive for yourself.  DON’T Leave the words or actions for tomorrow, next week or for another time because NOW may be the Last chance you have!!  I myself am guilty of all of the above, just as we all are whether we realize it or not.  Forgiving and trying to mend a relationship isn’t weakness, it isn’t giving in to them, it isn’t saying you were wrong or right it is simply just attempting to fix a piece of your heart.  It actually takes great courage and we are often actually afraid of rejection, of what someone may say or how they will react but as long as you try…as long as you truly did your best then at least you tried.  As long as you know in your heart you did your best there’s NO Regrets on your end regardless of the outcome!!  You can have piece of mind instead of regrets and I wish I had’s……..

~LIFE can be gone in the blink of an eye, you or you’re loved one may be gone and you didn’t get to tell them that you truly care, that you love them despite any issues of the past, you didn’t get to say I Love You or give them a hug from the hears…….NO REGRETS!! Love to me is unconditional because none of us is perfect, we all have issues from time to time and often we take some of our own issues out on the ones we love and push them away without meaning to…LIVE WITH NO REGRETS TOWARDS YOUR LOVED ONES!!!  I LUV U…Each and Every One of You even if we have never met!!!  Sending Big Hugs & Much Luv 2 You ALL, especially those whom have recently lost a loved one…. Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson

Happy Father’s Day to the Wonderful Men whom…..

Happy Father’s Day to ALL of the wonderful Men whom are playing the important role of “Father” regardless if biological or not.  Being a Father or Father Figure is equally important and it takes a good man to fill the shoes of Fatherhood.

You are looked up to, you are asked for advice, you are caregiver, you are a role model, you are more than you’ll ever know!!  Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad’s, Grandpas, Uncles, Brothers and anyone whom plays the Father Role…you are all important!! Happy Father’s Day!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson

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

THANK YOU, to the countless men and women of our Armed Forces

I stand behind our Men & Women, Past & Present and am Grateful for them and their Sacrifices…..  They sign on the dotted line knowing that they may be called upon at any time to put their lives on the line.

The least we can do is Stand Behind Them, Stand Up for them and Honor Them!!!  Regardless of political views or beliefs part of “our” duty as Americans is to Honor Them!!  Thank You for your service!!  I am Proud to be an American and Proud of ALL the men and women whom have or are serving our great Country!!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson
