No Easy 8…

Ever had one of those days that just as soon as you open your eyes from a good night’s sleep, you instantly foresaw that the day was going to be a challenge?  They say problems, like many other issues in this world, come in sets of three.  Only this morning you sensed those sets of three would be continuous bursts of B/S, intermixed with subtle changes of reality and disenchantment.
First, I need to say that all the motivational stuff I spout really does work, if you let it.  But there are some days when the “connection to all things” falls into the category of “Not now.”  They say that life is a journey, and that not all journeys are easy, but today I say “bite me.”

Lester Levenson once said,
“If we do not like what’s happening to us in the world,
all we have to do is change our consciousness—and the
world out there changes for us!”

But today I said B/S.  I am riding this one out and when it is timed out, it will be a good day.  Like they say, “There is no easy 8.”  So when life is kicking your butt, remember that it’s leg will tire and things will normalize.

Wake up call…

I thought I would pass this on. It is an email I received recently and understanding that the economy is still in the toilet due to corporate greed and government incompetency, there are many people who are just scraping by financially and others that are having a difficult time keeping their heads above water.  Some have given up, yet others have not… 

“I am writing to let you know that some of the stuff you have wrote has helped me make it throgh some bad days. I have been unemployed for about 8 months now and my savings are almost gone. I do what I can to live cheaper and not spend money, but some days it is really hard. I don’t want to sound like I am whining. I just want to thank you for giving me some hope. Your stuff has helped. Thanks”

I thank you for your kind words and the realization that I need to be thankful for all those gifts I do own. I am humbled by your words and they validate my goal of giving motivation and showing others that they need to give thanks also. Remember that there is always a new day and new opportunities if you can hold your courage and continue moving forward. I wish you all the good things in life and know by your words that you are one of those life warriors I write about. Keep up the good fight and know that what you are going through is temporary. It will get better.

For those of you who have a good life, take a moment and give thanks and appreciate the fact that your life could be much worse.

Accept it or Change it…

Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” –Life’s Little Instruction Book

I realize that I am sounding like one of those old timey preachers or a broken record, whichever the case may be, but the topic is important to those who need or want to enjoy life to it’s fullest.  This sermon/recording is about change. No matter if we want change or try to avoid change, change will happen. Nothing stays the same. Spiritually, emotionally or physically. Change is happening right now, as you sit, reading this. Some change we have little or no control over. The process of growing old can not be stopped, but the physical change and the emotional change of growing old can be tweaked. We can face our progression through time with a positive attitude and a healthy lifestyle. We cannot turn back the hands of time.

The problem lays with the fear we have for change. Something new and different. Right now, many people are living their lives, regretting about past choices and looking into the future, wishing for better outcomes. But in reality, they are living in this moment. They have become so accustomed to this looking back and wishing forward that it has become second nature and to change their lives is scary and many people will choose to live their lives this way because they carry fear inside of them.  Instead, some will simply exist, pretending they are “content” with life, while others will abuse drugs and alcohol, thinking they are living life to the fullest by numbing their bodies and minds.  And some will take the chance to improve the life they are living now.  Which one will you be? 

For those who want to live better, to wake each morning, refreshed and connected with themselves in body, mind and spirit, then begin now.

  1. Get enough restful sleep.

  2. Eat a nutritional breakfast

  3. Get some exercise, whether it is going to a gym or just talking a brisk walk.

  4. Find time to be alone and reflect. Meditation, yoga or just sit and watch the sunset.

  5. Dare to dream.

We have heard this many times from many people and still, many do not get it. Some are not ready and others are too lost. You have but one life to live and you need to live it to its full potential. Go far, take chances and live passionately.

Begin now to live your life or accept what you have now and deal with it. It is your choice.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend

Friends and acquaintances.  We all have both.  For the most part, our acquaintances probably outnumber our friends 10 to 1.  Problem here is that they all influence our lives, both for the good and the bad. But knowing human nature, the scale here tips for the negative.  If someone in your life is just not getting the message you are trying to send them, it is time for you to give up — at least for a while. They might be ready to listen soon, but you shouldn’t hold your breath. You don’t really need them, and it is a waste of your time to keep knocking on their emotional doors if they won’t let you in. What you wanted might still happen, but not with their assistance. That’s okay — you are ready for a new cast of characters in your life anyway.  Dump the losers, keep the winners and build from there.

What do you choose?

You can choose to live in a life filled with stress, anger, hopelessness, or negativity, you can choose to substitute living with drugs and alcohol that numb you to reality or you can choose to not utilize the gifts you own.  Why would you live this way when you have choices?  For some, there is no direction, no road map to a better existence or no idea on how to even begin such a journey.  For others, they lack the strength, motivation, determination or wisdom to make the changes needed to brightened one’s future.  It is matter of settling, of accepting the prosaic and feeling that nothing in their lives will ever change.

There are those who live feeling they have been cheated by life somehow, that the “Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.”  Sitting and wishing does not work.  Neither does feeling angry that they have not realized their dreams or completed those goals that they had set for themselves.

But one does NOT have to feel or live this way.  Again, this is a choice that one needs to commit to, rather than sitting and resigning to what is and not what can be.

First step:  Stop feeling sorry for yourself.  Plain and simple.  Sometimes people tell me that I am too blunt.  That I need to sugar coat my words.  Sugar coating can work in some situations, but to really smack someone beside the head and make them think, sugar coating does not work….Smack!!!!

Feeling like you can not accomplish any of your goals is a cop out.  If you want something, then DO IT!.  No excuses, no waiting for the “right” time, no dwelling in the negativity that you have created for yourself and yes, you created it.  Now, uncreate it.

Take what you want

I recently had a reality slap from life and the bitch connected real good.  I will tell you why and what I am going to do about. I have always put others in front of me when it came to most aspects of life.  I gave respect to all no matter if they didn’t return it.  I gave money and time to those in need and never asked for anything in return.  No more.  I am number one now and my way of thinking is to take what I need.  The damned government does it everyday.  Corporations stick it up your ass everyday.  They take ang give little in return.  So, it’s my turn.  Fuck you government and Fuck you greedy coporations.  It’s my turn.

Coming soon….The first step in taking what you want.

By the way…I am not meaning stealing from your neighbors, family or other individuals because you are too lazy or stupid to earn these things with honor like a real man or woman.  Stealing from other people puts you in the same catagory as the government and coporations and you will be nothing but a bottom feeding low-life….And I really hate bottom feeding low-lifes.
