A New Year

If there is one thing I would hang on my wall in the new year, it would be that calendar that said I spent a Sunday in the church pew.

If I could change one thing and do it all over again, I would make sure money wasn't the only thing on my mind.

Too much time is spent on worrying over the obstacles that stand in the way to challenge the improvement you might make through better intentions.

A pilgrim's progress is a sure thing, but the steps we take and the decisions we make define whose outcome is a certain success.

The broad way is plain to see. When in the straights of uncertainty, there are those who have come along    before to show the simple how they may engage the most difficult terrain.

When choosing to decide your fate, remember those who chose the right course to get you there.

You're still on target if you have anyone with whom you can call on for a casual acquaintance and have a positive impact.

Did you ever think the new beginnings you might have made were the opportunities you passed on that made a negative impact?

One good thing I have found in being held responsible for our choices is that we may find in the alternative to our error the right way to succeed.

If I have anything provincially to retire with, it's on my mind to make it to the footfall of the next day

There's always that goodness in somebody who remembers the better qualities you possess in a friendship.

Have you thought about the possibilities if it's in your forte to put it into words what it is you wanted to say?

Somebody let me know today what it is that causes them the most painstaking in examination of conscience.

If it was pathological what put you there don't fall into the same temptations over and over.

Try to overeat when you're doing yourself a favor, and it's the same futility as before.

Half the battle puts you there. Be more careful of your objectives if your goal is to be certain.

I thought when I was young as an idealist would, but now I've retired my ambitions. The losses I've taken have every momentum in the grace that comes with age.

You need a fresh perspective to clear the cobwebs out and tune in to the quality of life. The attitude you possess can reflect on your betterment. Any chance in the time you spend while you're "in" to adjust your mentality will provide improvement.

Whatever did it, what put you there is an idealism you can't bargain with for the good things in life. So give yourself a break and try a fresh perspective.

When you're ready, the support you needed will be there, and that is something you can rely on if this is your time.

Some of those thoughts that put you out, that come with the despairing notion that you can't connect the dots are notes of despair only a survivor can overcome.

There's always a wisdom and it comes with age that the people around you facing the same trials and hardship are lost in the hatred and without a voice when the losers gain in the greater toll upon society.

You find yourself making the adaptation to a new environment, and applying skills that help you keep making positive choices, and you will likely keep your reputation.

Remember at the end of the day if someone did something nice for you that could happen to anyone at any place or anytime, that's an occasion you just can't take for granted.

When it's time to socialize, the kindness and honesty you share will come back in reciprocal for the tact you show.

Take a breather from the monotony in your environment to get a general sense of your surroundings and the few freedoms you still possess.

For the discipline you show in the sharing of time to consider that fault you might have, howsoever you may be able to place a finger on it, you're not alone and without empathy.

Any inadmissibles left behind you untended to are for your gain. In those spare moments of "me" time, try to find yourself alone in reconsideration of where the losses place you, knowing you are the one most responsible for the benefit you receive.

Too often I find myself taking responsibility for the unresolved issues that arrive on a daily basis. As time goes by, these things take care of themselves with or without my attention. The question I'm holding out for others begs for attention, "Did I do the right thing?"

The system works! Someone is picking up the slack to help you in a greater effort, and they are thankful for the smallest iota in the gift you have to share.

Only so much is asked of an act of charity in that the thanks given in return is appropriated in kind. What I mean by that is the rapport you receive in kindness spreads the love.

In the conditions and surrounding of a supportive environment you don't have to rely on a sympathetic voice to assuage the angst you may possess if you've done your homework and taken care of a few things yourself. You know what I'm talking about if you carry a sense of the simple values that walk the walk and talk the talk.

You think you left a catastrophe behind when you regain your ethics. It's disclosure that can put you in the pink, but are you second guessing to know the cost of incarceration?

What can it do to face the consequences when the sense of values you levy unalterably stand to provide your integrity.

Some people say the best way to choose true friendships from aquaintenances among yourselves  is to ask if they will be there when all the world offers is the suffering task that is like the straw breaks the camel's back.

Bad news first: You might have offended the justice.
And the good news: you all have a chance to make amend and recover good graces.

The thing about what you've left behind before doing time, you had that tight in your fist, and you let it go. Show some grief for the repercussions and losses you've had.

Jaime Saus

Maybe you want to know where all the magic went. Back in the day all the good things kept the score and you knew what time it was. But weren't those good things just the same ugly that put you down when you got caught?
