There has been many times in my life when I have just found myself wondering what the heck just happened! Have you? It doesnt have to be anything huge, but just something that takes you totally by surprise. Twenty years ago when something just threw me for a loop I would come close to balling up in a knot and dying because I just couldnt figure it out, but with years of new experiences and lessons learned I have developed an antidote for this condition.  It is the word WHATEVER. My teenagers use to say this all the time and I use to wonder why do they say it. After finally getting on of them to have a conversation about the word with me I GOT IT! They just didnt want to let other peoples stuff bother them. They would just say WHATEVER. I adapted the word and started doing the same thing. NOT out loud so much but in my spirit. It really does keep you on track sometimes to just not let things bother you. When things that I dont understand try to bother me or when I just cant fix something I simply say WHATEVER. I do realize that you can not change people. You cant always change a situation or a circumstance but we can however choose how we are going to respond or not respond to them.  I encourage you today to just say WHATEVER when you know beyond the shadow of a dought that you cant do anything to change something. It gives you the freedom to just move on and enjoy your life.  Blessings

    • Cocco, another great post!  My son used to say “whatever” to me as well.  I’ve had people at work say that before and I always hated it, thought it was a rude remark.  But.....I know what you mean by saying it under your breath and your message.  Your right on when it comes to that.  I learned years ago you can’t change a person.  Oh well, whatever.  LOLhappy

    • Oh I’m sorry to say,  but thats one of my fave things to say. WHATEVER! ohhhh Just ask my hubby..lol, but hes gotton use to It now and sometimes I catch him saying It now and then.happy I know some people thinks It’s a rude word, so I don’t use It to everyone, just to the people who really know me and know why I say It and say It under my breath to strangers.
