When worse comes to worse, throw water bottles at the refs.

Have you ever watched a ridiculous movie, or sporting event and wish stuff actually went down like that in real life? How is it that people get away with the most ludicris of acts on the big screen or the field or the ice. I was recently at a hockey game where one of the coaches threw water bottles at the refs. I mean he aimed for their faces! It was hilarious in the moment, but it got me thinking. You know society makes us believe that it is okay to steal someones' husband, as long as we are really "in love" with them, or hit hard, as long as the ref is looking the other direction. We have been trained to ignore our conscious. So what can we do about this, besides not swinging at the dumb blonde who cut in front of us in line?(For her sake, she probably didn't see you there. She IS trying to walk, text, AND chew gum at the same time. Give her a break.)

We can learn to take the JUDGE out of judgemental. Because when you do, all thats left is mental. And mental patients love everyone. 

We can go out of our way for someone. Random acts of kindness make the world go round. Plus it helps you meet new people. 

We can NOT be quick to anger. It is proven that happy and optimistic people live on average, 9 years longer that pessimistic people. PLUS it says not to in the bible. (James 1:19)

We can try to be good examples. When you think that people are watching, you're more than likely to make the right decision. (Unless you play hockey). 

I have learned that happy people make friends, and pass tests, and generally have a higher quality of life. So let's be happy! Give a hug, walk a dog, eat some fries. Don't let life pass you up and don't spend life throwing water bottles. Unless it is recreational. 

You're Welcome.
