Don't Take Guilt Trips

Source

If you must take a trip, take one to the shops...

Or to an old world rose garden...

Or a trip to the seashore... 




But don't even bother taking any guilt trips.
The memories will be awful,
never mind the collection of  'negatives'
from the photography sessions!


Here's wishing you some nice trips this year!

Hugs,
Brenda

  2. Oh yes!

    In the year 2000, I finally gave myself permission to use my mind and think for myself and ponder things. A lot of time later, I came to my present life view.

    And believe me, it is one which is GUILT FREE!

    Mmmmmm, I have a *Grumpy* post today. Hope you have time to pop over and read it. :-)

    "I'm tired, tired, tired,
    of *new,* *new,* *new*..."

  3. Guilt Trips are emotionally expesive and hard to recover from.

    I like the idea of coffee shop for a latte. Want to meet me?

  8. Good advice. Guilt is so destructive, and counterproductive. I'd love the latte though!

  9. Sometimes it is hard not to take a guilt trip but thanks for the reminder that I don't have to go. I can stay home and enjoy my books.

  10. I am afraid we have all taken those trips before. They're never fun don't make good memories. Here's to more fun and less guilt.

  12. Oh, I love that country garden. I would love to just mosey on inside and rest a spell. It would be so wonderful if I could just not take any more guilt trips. The Lord says that all things are possible to him who believes. I'm just not going to take those trips anymore. Thanks for a wonderful post.

  13. Hi Brenda, yes you are so right! Guilt trips are no fun and just make everyone miserable. When there is guilt,
    it is like looking at a beautiful garden through a dirty window! Nothing ever looks at its best. Have a lovely friday afternoon and thank you Brenda for this important reminder! Delisa :)
