Be Good to Each Other

I know lately many probably think I have lost my mind, posting things like, "Have a great day everyone!!" and all that ~ on my Facebook page;

But..... If I may take a second of your time.

Life is short, so very short and so very precious. I think sometimes we forget that in our, get where we need to be ~ make things happen, kind of lives.

Be good to each other; I forget this. I get so caught up in things ~ I forget that life isn't about the battles I wage ~ it's about those things you do that make another person’s life better. No one, at the end of life ever says, "I wish I had cussed out so and so. We are more likely to say, "I wish I had NOT cussed out so and so." Who wants to leave this life angry? Certainly not me.

Be good to each other; seems like such a simple concept but in practice can be very difficult. Trust me I know. I have had more than my share of untruths being said about me. In fact one person has been telling some whoppers about me now for at least 5 years.... One would think this person would eventually give up. Do I fire back? No. Why not? Because I feel sorry for this person. No really I do. I feel bad for anyone who can only be hateful. How unhappy must that life be? It's not a life I would want to live.

I can read the angry comments about me, and simply move on, because I know the truth - I lived it.

Be good to each other; Live your life like it's your last day on earth. Do all the things you want to do, and be happier, than even you think, you're allowed. We only have one life (unless the Dalai Lama is right).

If you are on my Facebook page, or reading this article; know that every single second of every day I am wishing every one of you the best day you can possibly have. Filled with love, happiness and laughter. If you are having difficulties in your life, please know I am thinking of you.

I am sure many of you are scratching your heads right now and wondering, "What happened to Melissa?"


This is who I am. The side of Melissa you probably didn't even know existed. Yes, I disagree with people in this community ~ but my disagreements do not equal hate. To show you are a caring person in this community seems to be a crime or shows weakness. I disagree with that.

So, have a GREAT DAY everyone. And know there is at least one person in the world that is rooting for you!!!

    Well said Melissa! You speak truth, and the reality of how we all should treat each other. No one really knows if we will see a loved one again when they leave home. Never say "goodbye" without saying that I Love You every day..

    Thank you. I have had such positive feedback on this article it simply warms my heart. There is good in this community (be it as it may) and I choose to focus on those people.

    Besides if I left the community there would be at least one guy who would be very bored. He would have no one to complain about. Funny part is, it would be refreshing if he stopped the hate for just a minute to evaluate his own actions, and things he has done to people in this community, that have forced people to break contact with him. But, I know that day will never come. Why? He is not happy unless he is angry.

    I have come to realize, it doesn't matter what you put out or how many times you explain something. Haters are gonna hate and that is their karma. But, I do feel sorry for people like this person ~ what a miserable life he must lead to be so angry all the time and spread gossip and lies as if it is the truth, about people, he doesn't even know.

    So, I will go about my business and do what I do. Besides life is to short and I intend to be happy as much as possible. I don't sweat the small stuff and no one should!! :)

    anonymous @11:37 ~ I think I know who you are speaking of and if it's the same person ~ man, is that a long story. Suffice it to say I parted ways with this person for very good reason. I don't know if he had a crush on me and I rejected him in some way. Never thought about it like that, but you're not the first person to bring this up as a reason for why he won't stop talking about me.

    Who knows.. I don't. I really don't care. I simply wish him all the best and hope he finds some happiness in his life. That's all I can do.

    But, there is ALWAYS two sides to every story and when people only listen to one side - they never get the full picture. But, that's fine with me. It tells me who wants the truth and who doesn't.

    Take care Anonymous!!!

    I have a question about your blog design... how do you get the words in your blog posts to line up to the right side of the post like in a newspaper? Is it template code or is it done in the post editor?

    What I do is this. I write my full article, highlight it, then go to the top of the page (you should see a full line across the top of different options like adding photos etc.). Place your cursor over them all until you see one called, "Alignment". Click the drop down box next to it and select "Justify".

    Then - click anywhere to make the highlighting go away.

    That should do it. :) Hope that was helpful!!!
