My 365...

Why is it so hard to be honest and tell someone when their behavior or actions are causing your world to be off center? 

We always worry about rocking the boat, hurting someone's feelings, saying the wrong thing.  But the truth of the matter is if we do not say what is on our mind, the results are far worse than if we had rocked the boat a little when it needed rocking. 

Animosity starts to build and can eventually boil over with catastrophic endings.  Or...misunderstandings occur that could have been prevented in the first place by just being honest.

Seems so easy doesn't it?

We all assume that every other person on this planet has a basic understanding of right and wrong, good and bad, acceptable and unacceptable behavior.  I am finding that is not at all the case.  Not everyone had the opportunity or advantage of "Life's Basics 101."  I guess maybe they slept in and missed school that day?

Take these two for example.  RayRay and Miss Lilly are not exactly the best of friends.  Ray Ray is new to our household, and has not figured out all the rules yet.

Does that bother Miss Lilly?  Sure it does, but she is not going to keep the frustration to herself because she is worried about hurting Ray Ray's feelings.

If Ray Ray gets out of line, or too close to Miss Lilly's space, she will let him know with a growl and a snap that his behavior is unacceptable in her kingdom.  That easy.

He may need to be reminded from time to time...but he knows the rules.

"Hey Miss Lilly, what's happening hot stuff?"
 "Oh dear gawd it is Bob Marley!  What do YOU want?"
 "Aww Miss Lilly, why do you have to be so cold?  I have tried to stick to the rules."
 "So you have.  However...have you looked in a mirror lately?  Do you even know what a mirror is?  Or a brush for that matter!"
 "Oh come on now Miss Lilly, you KNOW you LOVE me!"  *snort*

Keep it simple, keep it honest...keep it real!

Now if only I could be as blunt as the diva.

Dozer is one canine who never rocks the boat.  Well unless he was actually sitting in a boat...then it would definitely be rocking!  :)

Music I am listening to today...Bob Marley

Until Next time..."It's okay to rock the boat...just don't tip it over."
