Why? Why not? Why not me? Why not now?."

puddle jumping
Yup, Pop was watching me play in the puddle.
I know what he was thinking, but I did not expect this article.
But, he's right, again.
Puddles work like life itself
Maybe that is why kids like puddles.
Watch the rock's ripple effect in the puddle and see what life is like all at the same time. I'll be sure he does the right things.

What is it about puddles, rocks, and little boys?

Little boys love puddles. Where there is a puddle, there always seem to be rocks nearby. The little boys know just what to do. Throw the rocks in the water and watch the splash.

They also know bigger rocks make more of a splash. Big rocks and big splashes are the objective. Oh, and getting into the water and getting their shoes and clothes wet also.

What is it about the splash and the movement of the water?

The puddle and the rock thrown in to watch the action is just like life. What we do and the effect. What we do reverberates out from us to encompass a circle of unknown size. Often, we can’t see how far our actions travel. But, travel they do.

Little boys enjoy seeing the results of rocks thrown in the water. The bigger the results, the more they enjoy it.

What rocks are you throwing in your puddle? You do realize, just like the rock thrown in the water, whatever you do or do not do has a reaction. The more or the bigger the thing you do, the bigger the reaction and the more far reaching it is.

We can see the results of the rock thrown in the puddle by watching the water. We can see the results of our actions if we pay attention. We should pay attention and see the results of our actions. Then we’d realize that what happens to us, good or bad, is a result of what we have or have not done.

We start the chain reaction by our actions. Then, once the action is taken, the results take over. We can’t change what we have done. When we throw the next rock, we can change what and how we do it in order to change the reaction. But, once we act, once we throw, the results are out of our control.

What we do in life is like throwing a rock in the puddle. There will be a reaction. There will be motion, and the results can be seen and felt. We should pay attention to the results. Often, we know in advance what the reaction will be to something we are going to do.

Knowing there is an action and a reaction and often knowing in advance what that will be, does it change your action? It is always a good idea to take a moment before you act to see what the results will be. If the results are satisfactory or favorable then do it. If not, then you might want to rethink your action.

The action taken should be the one that gets you the results you are looking for.
