SoCS 1-21-23- Count on it- Use it!

Your prompt for #JusJoJan the 21st and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “count on it.” Use the phrase “count on it” somewhere in your post. Enjoy!

[One of my all-time favorite songs came to my mind yesterday and I was determined, no matter the prompt, to USE IT. :-D]

So, the prompt “count on it” made me first think about numbers. I dislike them. I don’t care about the old saying, “Numbers never lie”. They’re dishonest because they can be manipulated as much as any other human method of understanding. As Mark Twain said, “Facts are stubborn but statistics are quite pliable.”

Does anybody still think a statistic from any government resource is something you can count on? If your answer is, “Yeah”, remind me not to seek your advice on anything.

But everyone needs something to count on. If you’re a Christian it’s, of course, Jesus. But there must be SOMETHING worldly that makes us think “I can count on it.”. I suggest you consider yourself as a candidate.

Are you going to make mistakes? Duh. You can count on it. But who knows when you’re lying every single time? Who knows what you like, and what you’re good at, better than yourself?

Even when we don’t listen to that little voice known as a conscience, we hear it.

So, here’s my advice, trust and believe in yourself. Embrace your strengths and try to improve your weaknesses. And most importantly, forgive yourself often. You’re a ‘work in progress’.

Many of my posts come right out and say that I believe every one of us is unique. Claiming that I’m an individualist is an understatement. Knowing that, below is my choice of a theme song for this post.

Remember:
Every decision you make, everything you tell yourself, and how you nurture and apply your talents is up to YOU.
You have great power…
Use it wisely and your happiness is almost guaranteed.

Hit it, Eric!

Dear Blogging friends,

I am so satisfied to announce that I have FINALLY found a theme that I feel wonderful with!

Since my granddaughter was much of my inspiration for blogging I have placed her in my HEADER.

My restless attempts to settle upon a theme may have been confusing.

This one is a keeper!

Thank-you for your comments and patience 🙂

Love,

Susan
