Just Drink The Water And Enjoy Life


After many years of worring about one thing or another I have found that I am begining to live in the moment and not stress over things I can't change or worry about what might happen. I would rather be happy with my life and barsk in the love of my family and friends. This post has  come about when I saw this little saying of Facebook and thought that is what I would do drink the water.......................lol

I think many people spend to much time worry about things or planning thier life and what happens life happens and they may miss out on stuff and don't enjoy thier life. Another blogger Timothy who can be found here: http://timothology.blogspot.com.au/ said in his post today "other peoples opinion of me is none of my business" and this is so bloody true you need to stop worrying about what other people think of you and start enjoying your life all we can do is live our life the best we can, try and be kind and understanding and not judgemental.


I believe in Karma and I am not talking about the cat Karma who can be found over here: http://soulcomfort.blogspot.com.au/ but karma as in what goes around comes around or if you are a bitch it will come back and bite you in the arse..........lol


So all my friends stop worrying if the glass is half full or half empty just drink the water and move on with life and be the best person you know how to be and remember as you age you learn and when you know better you will do better........................or as I like to say

Oh Joanne, this is such a great post, and something we should all take on board. Really good words of advice. For years, I was a real worry guts, and it really is such an awful waste of time, and changes nothing. Anyway, half the time the thing you were worrying about didn't come to pass anyway. LOL!! I also used to worry about what people thought of me, as I am a real people pleaser. But we really shouldn't do that. As long as we behave decently, and treat people with kindness and respect, and always try to help others, we can do no more really. Good post my friend!

Dearest Jo-Anne,
I totally agree with what you said "Remember Life's Too Short To Be Miserable"!!! I always wish to be a person who can cope with worries with the concept "Tomorrow is another day"; haha, or rather from the movie I loved and moved when young. It is hard for me; but yes, we should go on and enjoy life, shouldn't we(^_^)彡☆

Love you always from sis-city in Japan, xoxo Miyako

The cat would just take the glass and knock it over, making a mess. Then trot off like nothing happened without a care in the world. Slowly learning to live in the moment, as that is the way to be, all this planning and such is just a pain.

Shelly said...

Absolutely. And I think the older I get, the more this becomes real to me. Great post~

Elsie said...

So typical of the wretched cat!

Elsie said...

I loved that saying so much - it was funny. I shared it with Devin and he was like, yeah, good point. I'm still an optimist though.

timothy said...

i NEVER worry bout that half full nonsense, i just pull a 2liter out from under the counter and top it off! lolol seriously what happens happens as long as you have enough it does NOT matter!

Ruth said...

Worry will get you nowhere. Most of the time you worry about what COULD happen and it never does. You make yourself feel bad, maybe even sick. All for nothing.

becca said...

i love that picture you posted so true instead of arguing over half empty or half full just enjoy the moment. I know it's an american holiday that you don't celebrate but wanted to wish you and your family a Happy fourth of July have a wonderful day XOXO

Rita said...

How true! How true! From one who has a 20-pound hunk of Karma following her about every day--LOL! ;)

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes I have never been a big worrier, I did go through a phase when I worried a bit but it passed and I am back to just enjoying life and not worring about whay might happen......

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Glad you liked it I am glad my worring days didn't last long and I am now back to not worring and enjoying life one day at a time. I agree if we are generally good hearted decent people they we are doing the best we can do. Why worry about something that might never happen

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

That saying has been my saying for life for many years now I add it to all my letters to pen friends it is my signature saying.........

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Oh yeah cats live without worry and I am sure Karma does and yes a cat would just knock the glass over and make a mess for it's human to clean up.......lol

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes I agree it is something that hits home more as we age, I am lucky that I have never been a worrier.....
take after my mother in that regard

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Better to an optimist then a pessimist I guess.......

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

So true my friend life is to be enjoyed and you can't enjoy life worring about every little thing

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes so true most of the what might happen or what could happen never does so why worry about it......just live your life and be happy

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Thank you hope you had a great 4th July mine was cold and the night was spent with a sick child........

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Your Karma is just so adorable though........

whiteangel said...

That's a great saying..
What happens today happens, and tomorrow will take of itself...that is about how I feel.

orchid said...

Oh, we share the same feeling, my friend(*^_^*)

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I am glad you liked the saying...........and no point in worrying about tomorrow when we can only live one day at a time

Susan Cooper said...

I LOVE that quote. I do so agree with you. We spend so much time worrying we forget about living. Life is short, drink the water. :)

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes I like the quote when I saw it life is for living and not for stress over how much water is in a glass.......lol
