MERRY Monday/ Live and Let Live
The phrase live and let live means to mind your business, and I'll mind mine—and vice versa. It's the modern concept that one should let others live their lives as they see fit. I see it as a
I have discovered that the application of this principle makes my life a lot simpler. It isn't easy, but it's often better for sure.
.Don’t you just love it when someone who more often than not has a hard time running his or her own life, butts in and tries to run yours? Sometimes we get into things that are really none of our business, and those things can make us miserable. I believe we should not become entangled with the lives of others. We can be a good friend, but should beware of entanglements.
It is possible to lose yourself in someone else's life. Some folks love to fight. They can smell a brawl for miles. If people would stay out of it and mind their own business, there would be fewer troubles in the world.
When you stick your nose into another's business, you may fail to mind your own business, namely the business of taking care of yourself. Most of us have enough business of our own, without getting involved in the business of others. So I try to make it my ambition to mind my own business and endeavor to live quietly and peacefully. It's a great way to live.
Just as we can’t live another’s life for them. They have to learn for themselves. Think of your children. How you want to make life easy for them so they don’t make the same mistakes you made. But you can’t do that. If they need to learn they will have to live through the experience for themselves.
I'm merrily celebrating another Monday here at my house.
Walking along, minding my business...
I hope it's a MERRY Monday for you too.
