wow so unexpected......

Wow, today is September 23, and sadly I found the news on facebook; that one of my favorite guys in the whole world; who I went to school with from grade school to high school passed away this morning. His name was Steven Wallace, an amazing friend, father, husband to an amazing lady, as well as five precious children. In saying all of this, we should savor every moment with the ones that mean the most to us.

Apease vs Please?!

Wow, it has been three years since I've written, so I thought I would write a little on something that I got a ahhhahhh moment yesterday...!!

Appeasing vs Pleasing-----

Appeasing- is pleasing someone when ones angry just to make peace at the present time.

Pleasing:Is to act to the pleasure of---give pleasure or satisfaction-to please someone for the mere fact to make him/her happy---Nothing due to/for maniplation purposes, a simple just because.

Never really knew the difference until a wise lady told me yesterday....that when one appeases for peace, it seems like the right thing to do at the time, but all it does is it keeps making the circle of non-peaceful situations to be consistent in one's life. Whereas Pleasing is a life long line that stretches constantly to friends, and aquaitances and ones we love, cause we want to give the love cause we know they would like it as well, and it can also be tough love to the people in our lives that we use to appease.

What a simple concept, but so vital to ones life if they just take it and run!!
