LET’S JUST SEE WHAT HAPPENS by Valerie Cheers Brown
You don’t have to follow rules all of the time. Not every single rule is worth following. Sometimes people who make the rules forget and break them and a kid is so quick to observe and let them know, “You did it so why can’t I?” . So why do we have to follow them? If one person gets away with rules, then why do they have to be followed? Why do people say it is okay to make mistakes, just don’t keep making them? Rules are not universal, so why do they have to be followed? Why can’t we agree to disagree? There is no such thing as one right way to do anything, do you think? There is no such thing as the wrong way, do you think? Then there should be so such thing as the right way!
Sometimes you just don’t agree with the rules in the first place! Rules can keep you from doing the right thing. We all have been in predicaments where we want to do the right thing, but the rules simply don’t allow it, then what? Rules are for breaking and when rules are unjust, you are unjust if you simply go by the rules. What if you want to make a difference for the world and you know who they are directed to may get pissed at you. When you tell the truth about things which you know for a fact is about helping all living creations, sometimes the rules must be broken in order to do the right thing.
Sometimes rules can end up hurting you and others especially when it comes to your livelihood. What is more important, you living a long and prosperous life or going by the rules because they say you must take what they give you.
Think about it: Guidelines or rules are frequently planned as speculations, and are infrequently relevant in each circumstance. Once in a while, they may even wind up harming you and even worsening the circumstance or even situation.
If following the rules does nothing but bring harm to people, perhaps it is time to start breaking them.
The only thing you will be cheating when going by the rules is living a long life not being able to tell or talk about it to your grandchildren’s children.
“If you don’t break the rules, the rules will break you.”
“I am free no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them. If I find them obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” – Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988)

LIFE’S LESS IS BEST by Valerie Cheers Brown

LIFE’S LESS IS BEST by Valerie Cheers Brown
One day a little girl was born with a crippling blessing in her back which so small that she had to get out through her very own strength. And even though she had this immense pain in her back she never gave up and got so much better that the Olympics people approached she and her parents.
God decided to help the little girl perform and she performed and never gave up and the more she practiced the better she got.
The little girl had a sister who also wanted to do what she saw her big sister doing and God one day began a way for the little girl to begin making that small gap bigger so she could fly away one day.
The little girl’s sister stopped and watched her sister who day by day was trying her best of becoming a butterfly and it was because of this gap God had given to her which allowed her to turn into this beautiful butterfly to eventually fly away.
Even though the little girl’s parents would not let her go away to train for the Olympics, the little girl was trying her best to get out of that gap which God had blessed her with. It took a lot of time and the little girl was trying very hard to escape the gap and even though the gap was still pretty small, she never once stopped trying to push her way through even after her parents stopped her from wishes of being in the Olympics one day!
God continued to be by the little girl’s side and she was so sad that her parents would not let her train for the Olympics. It sort of discouraged the little girl to push harder to get out of the opened gap. The little girl’s sister knew that the power and determination would leave her sister soon. So, she helped her sister and cut the slit a little bigger with a butter knife.
Something spectacular all at once happened!
The little girl had turned into a butterfly and immediately got out, but its little body was very weak and fragile and her wings were barely moving.
The little girl’s sister continued to watch and all the time just knowing that she would now be able to fly. However, this did not happen!
The rest of the little girl’s life she would have to manage her crippling blessing, yet endured the pain. She was unable to fly because her sister helped her and in a way she crippled her even more, but this time it was not a blessing from God, but a well-learned lesson for them both to hold onto for the duration of their lives.
You see, by the little girl’s sister helping her out of the opened gap, she did not realize that God had on purpose made the way out very small so that she could get stronger and get out by herself. The little girl was very weak and could barely open her wings, but she never once gave up even though she had not much strength left.
Life forced the little girl to leave its opened gap hardly so that it would become stronger and would be able to grow and develop on her own.
Moral: If we were permitted to live without meeting troubles, we would not be suitable. Life gives us difficulties to make us more grounded all alone.
