Survival and Friction

Standard

A little friction can cause a fire.  I like this clip.  Bet you never realized an orange was so flammable!  I didn’t.  It makes sense why I get such heartburn after eating them. 🙂  Well in the same way with our relationships, we too can cause friction and set fires.  These fires can tear us down, beat us up and damage us beyond repair if we do not extinguish them.  Awareness is a necessity of survival.  If we do not recognize the friction between others and own up responsibility for it then how are we ever supposed to prevent a fire from occurring?  We can’t and that is fact.  So the trick here to survival is to be aware.

On a contrasting note, much like farmers slash-and-burn the land sometimes we need to do this with certain relationships in order for a richer more nutrient filled soil can exist.  Cultivation of GOOD and HEALTHY soil for new and wonderful seeds to be planted.  Do you have a trick to survival?  Do you have to have the friction to make it happen sometimes?

Ponder that life question.  HA.  So what fires have started or are you putting out currently??  🙂

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.
