Just show up!

My youngest was trying out for the professional nutcracker production. This is her second year of ballet and she really wants to do ballet because she says it is her life. So, we both had no idea what auditions would be like. We showed up, gave the application, and waited. There were so many people there and parents that had no clue what to expect either. She tried out, and then we waited for almost a week. Guess what? She got the part! If she decided not to go because she was nervous, then she would never have been able to experience an audition or have a chance to be in the production. Showing up to things when we are nervous is difficult, but just do it. You never know what awaits you!

Amazing Angels on Earth.

There are so many people on this Earth that are amazing. I believe God sends help in the form of human help. If you try to live a decent life, things will be ok. There is always someone worse off than you are. Remember to always forgive and have some empathy towards others. I also know that there are truly selfish people in this world. Try to be as good as you can and as honest as you can. Lies cover lies cover lies and pretty soon, the person has no clue what is truth or what they said in the lie. Sooner or later the person catches themselves in their web of lies and they realize( hopefully) they are caught. Lately I have experienced many people who are just there when I needed them. I needed a laugh yesterday and this guy in a store just said to me with a straight face, ” Did you know there was a fire at the cheese factory?” I said really? His response was there was nothing left but debris. I looked at this old man and laughed. Maybe he saw the look of frustration on my face and just decided out of the goodness of his heart to make me, a total stranger, laugh because I needed it. I’m telling you, there are thousands of these little miracles and helping hands of God everywhere! You just have to look. Thank you Jesus!

Are you someone’s angel today?

Keep moving forward…

It always amazes me what others can do to each other to prevent them from moving forward. Sometimes, we all just need to say fuck it and continue on. Don’t waste anymore energy on people who clearly don’t give a fuck about you. Care about yourself enough to put your own priorities and happiness on the front burner instead of the back burner. Things become clear and you realize the path you were on is not the right path.

Binge watching Christmas movies………..

AS I watch these movies, I wonder do these love tales exist??? I really don’t think that they do. Real life isn’t the movies and that is the problem with watching these. I feel like my expectations are set so high, that it can’t possibly exist. I am not asking for magic, I am just asking for mutual actual love and respect. I have been doing some PT work as a merchandiser, merchandising books. As I read these titles and the premises of e books, I think who writes these things? Then a customer was walking by and started talking to me and saying he wants to write books. He commented on the romance books and I said but they set an unrealistic expectation of what a romantic relationship is. His reply was but women can at least read about it and have it in an intellectual form. So, my question is, does this kind of love actually exist? Actual love. I have been thinking that the only actual love that exists is the that between us and God and the love we have for our children. other than that, I don’t feel like there is no strings attached love.

If you could, would you?

Let’s pretend money doesn’t exist and you don’t need it to survive. What would you choose to do with your time, talents, or job? Yes, some people out there would say that if they didn’t need money, they would not work. Let’s pretend you don’t need money and you do have to work. What would you choose to do with your time? I would get out there and help others see their potential. I would try to build them up so they could see and recognize their talents. I truly believe that we all have something inside us that will help the world. Many negative things people say about others come from lack of self-worth. We do not benefit by trashing others or spreading lies. It is important to remember that we are in this world going through it at our own pace. It is not a race and we all have something to overcome and recognize. With maturity, comes wisdom. Wisdom comes from experiences that are both good and bad and from listening to others. I love speaking to older folks because they have been through tons and they have some good advice.

What would you do for a career or job if money didn’t matter and why?
