Leave Your Regrets Behind
August 9, 2019 2:51pm CST
I love, love, love this little saying. It is so true. You need to end your day by letting go of all the tensions and regrets of the day behind you. I try to keep a positive attitude all through my day but...if I can I let it go at the end of the day. I helps you relax and sleep. By the way, Smokey the Bear is 75 years old. I can remember the lessons we had in elementary school with Smokey standing up and saying "Only you can prevent forest fires. Do you remember Smokey?

@HazySue I was a kid living in the Midwest. I am the youngest in a good sized family. One day my oldest sister sent us word that she had mailed me a gift. She said it was a plastic blow up Smoky the Bear. Mom said that we had never gotten it. Maybe my brothers told our neighbors- they played army men with those kids. Anyway, next day Smokey showed up in our mail box. He had been played with and had a hole in him. Those rotten neighbor kids had raided our mail box but how to prove it? Then they returned what was mine after they had ruined my Bear.

I can say it as a nice reminder to always be on the positive side. But how can we maintain it? Day's work, toxic people around ruining what supposed to be is a smooth sailing. There are people with so much personal interest that really get on our nerves.

We named one of our city parks after Smokey! It's called Smokey Bear Park, and the reason we named it that was because the land used to be the headquarters of the Forest Service. They donated the land to the city when they moved to a bigger location outside of city limits. It's a beautiful park, and everything is themed around Smokey, including the playground!
