Don’t Confuse your path…

Standard

Life is a long journey.  We have paths that we take all the time.  Some more brutal than others.  You might consider transitions to be these paths where either you know you are walking into a hell-storm or it’s the calming before the storm or even just a beautiful walk in the park…I would like to have more of these please!  🙂  These periods of storm and peacefulness in contrast, are life in its purest form.

Nothing will be perfect, ever.  You can plan all you want and those plans will always change.  Choose to be flexible.  Choose to look past your current storm or transition and see the hope of a rainbow at the end.  If we focus on the dirt or pain of the moment, we lose sight of what is most important: survival.  This too shall pass.  Keep your chin up, keep persevering…stand a little taller and trust a little deeper.  Where ever you are at in your journey, embrace it.  Make the most of it and learn all you can from it.  Don’t let your  lack of sight through the downpour stop you…just keep going!

Today, “Don’t confuse your path with your destination.  Just because it’s stormy now doesn’t mean you aren’t headed for sunshine.”  -Unknown

Consistency is Everything…

Standard

Blogger friends and fellow strangers,

Sometimes words just cannot express how we feel.  A moment of pure silence and a cup of coffee.  Amazing how they soothe the soul.  It seems not many would understand…so why speak?  Save the breath and stop complaining.  Vent slightly a little each day in positive ways in hopes that it doesn’t get to the point of stress and agony.  Parts of agony to which I cannot explain.  How is it that you do what you are supposed to in one day and still feel like you accomplished nothing but there is always more to be done!  Our work is never done.

To no surprise, earlier this week there was a full moon and tomorrow is Friday the 13th.  No, I am not superstitious.  But there really is a science to the full moon bit.  To me, that makes sense.  Have you ever realized how crazy it seems people get around a full moon?  Well mark it on your calendar and just observe.  Consistency is everything.

Manic moods of highs and lows seem as quick as the tides….hence why the whole full moon theory makes more sense.  I strive for consistently constantly through out my day.  It never seems to fail at one point I just back log everything that I had worked toward in regards to consistency.  Then, I have to start over.  I have to keep persevering because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t learn endurance which is necessary for survival in this world.  It is painful.  Frustrating.  Why is it I cannot be consistently working toward good with out the bouts of fall backs?  It seems I make great progress…then with out fail I fall back again.  Human nature I guess.

These times of inconsistency in contrast are needed to prove why we need to work harder for consistency!!  For me, it seems that such chaos is thrown into the mix to allow us to prove to ourselves that we can do it.  Different day, another scenario….we CAN do it.  We CAN make it through.  Chaos doesn’t make it easy though.  You up for the challenge?  Bring it on (knock on wood) chaos!  I can handle you in small doses.  I can work through what you have to dish out to me.  I am not going to complain.  I am not going to let you get the best of me…and I sure as darn am not going to become defeated.

Keep on going little engine that could.  I believe in you.
