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

How to stay positive….

Standard

This morning, I had a great outlook on things and I have made some real progress.  I really came in with the idea in my head….”What am I going to do to promote sales?”  Successful in my attempt…things are really going swell.  I could use some sunshine right about now to stay positive though….what do you all think?

I found this article that I wanted to share with you all.  I think it is so important not to get yourself down when things are down or you are seemingly twiddling your thumbs.  http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/nolen1.html.

Now, because it is raining cats and dogs our there (by the way, anyone want to adopt any of them???  Take them off our hands PLEASE!) I made the choice to sleep an extra 15 minutes and not do my hair.  It was going to get destroyed anyways so why worry about it?

Lastly, music is always a good pump up.  So in hopes to make you have a more POSITIVE day listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELNh23yRiJc.

🙂  Have a “Super” Day!

Get to know yourself

As I sit at work and listen to my Pandora “Duffy” station, I realized we haven’t heard about or heard any music from Amy Winehouse in a while!  She is one that is so talented but, has let her addiction and lifestyle take over her.  How sad is that?  Such and amazing beautiful God-given talent she has!   Ironically I have found an article on her…or about her, rather?  http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2010-11-16/features/sc-fash-style-news-hells-angles-amy-w20101116_1_alexander-mcqueen-hells-angels-motorcycle-club-zappos

 

Yes...they tried to make her go to rehab...and she said no, no, no....

Travesty.  My little brother Mix and I were talking about some things that might pertain to this entry.  He is a very observant 11-year-old and asked “What the heck is this world coming to?”  He was amazed at the amount of “crazies” as he called them.  Reckless fame doesn’t teach these talented little ones to love and respect themselves for they are a special.  They fail to see they are a beautiful little gift of life that is capable of doing so much with a little love and respect!  🙂

Just interesting is all…hope and wish Ms. Winehouse the best!

Now today!  This morning…. I had a brilliant idea!  “I actually might think I am on to something my dear chap!”  (HORAY!)  I found new appreciation for my marketing passions.  I think I hypothetically figured it out….but not there quite yet!  🙂  Funny how idea flow in and out daily, hourly, minute by minute (as Michael McDonald might say…)…it is nice to know ONE might pan out!  Hope is a good thing.  Hope gets you through the darkest times…AND it is also hope that makes the darkness bright.

This period in my life is challenging to me.  I feel like I am just caught in the middle of ten crossfire’s and nothing is really of any productive manner either way I turn.  I am combating a million forces, blocking the negative and embracing the positive, karate chopping the ties of attachment to which I don’t need to have.  Life is confusing now, but good.

The other thing that I noticed this morning was the perspiration and moisture on my car this morning.

beautiful...

I try to notice at least one thing everyday that gives me wonder.  There is so much on this earth that is beauty right in front of our face!  We just choose not to pay attention to it with our hustle and bustle of life.  It stinks.  Just look around you…anywhere, where ever you are and look at what beauty surrounds you!!!  From little sprouts to dew drops, sunshine to shooting starts, a smile, a world of just simply beautiful moments!

Get to know yourself.  Respect yourself.  Then let yourself notice the beauty around you.  Once you are able to find love and respect for yourself, it will be so easy to find and locate the beauty around you!
