What I truly believe.

Everyday I encounter great people in this huge but very small world. It amazes me the talents that each individual person has to offer this world. I believe we are all special in our own unique way. I also believe we were created by God. Now, some of you may be saying God doesn’t exist. That is ok. If that is what you believe then I respect that. We are all a part of this life but we are on our own journey. Each journey is unique just like you are. We all need to learn lessons in life and I believe there are people around us that are able to help us in their own way. Each experience we have, gives us a new perspective. I have always said that we should always be seeking truth and answers. We are not going to find those answers if we do not look. The human mind is created to think and reason. I believe we crave knowledge. Life is a quest for knowledge. I also believe we crave human interaction on many levels. Someone who challenges you mentally and gets you to think, is an important person to keep in your life. This world is an amazing world if you take the time to slow your thinking down and enjoy it. What is important to you? Is it money? Freedom to do as you please? Relationships? Whatever it may be, if you don’t keep your priorities straight, you may just miss everything. I firmly believe writing things down helps to solidify the concept or task in your brain. You are making a move to commit to something. Action is important because if you don’t act, then your idea is just a dream. I heard many times that if you don’t act on the idea, it will be gone within 5 seconds. I can see that. I consider writing it down the first action. We all learn in different ways and we all have different capacities for taking in information. That is ok. One of the most appealing attributes of this world to me is that we are all different. Embrace that difference. Learn from one another. Don’t prejudge based on looks. If we can keep an open mind, see through clear(er) eyes, and be kind to one another, this world will be that much more amazing. If you believe in God or don’t believe in God, at least try to live a good and healthy life. Be kind to one another. Have the courage to be kind and lead by a good example. I know we make mistakes and things happen, but try to correct those mistakes, forgive yourself, and move on. In the end, when we pass, it is not up to me what happens to you. Therefore, it is up to each individual to seek knowledge and to take responsibility for their own actions.

What wakes you up?

As I began cleaning the kitchen this morning and starting a delicious breakfast for the family to enjoy this morning, I felt very happy inside. Taking care of the ones I love is my number one priority. I feel like I am fully awake in the sense that I know where my priorities here on Earth are. The relationships you have with others depends on the effort you exert and the effort they exert. You cannot have a relationship with someone who doesn’t want it. With that in mind, you cannot please everyone. No matter who you are, there will be people in your life that are just not meant to be. Learn your lessons and move on. Don’t feel bad if someone doesn’t like you or you didn’t connect. I feel it is an impossible goal of trying to get every single person to like you in this world. I have known so many people who get extreme anxiety or are very hurt to their core if they feel they are not accepted by everyone. My answer to this is, focus on what you can control. Filter out negative people and focus on how you want your life to be. You are in control( to a point) on how your life turns out. Yes, we have all been hurt by someone. Maybe that hurt stems from a parent or from a significant other that betrayed you in someway.  Try to let go of that hurt and realize that you don’t know the full story. You don’t know all the factors that played a part in that scenario. You may never know the details. This is exactly why you need to heal and move on. Not everyone you meet is there to hurt you or use you. Keep that in mind. Live and love to the fullest extent. If you hold back, you just never will ever know what you could have had. You are beautiful and you deserve happiness. You will never have to apologize for loving someone and treating them right.

….it’s the little things….

When I look at the grand scheme of life and try to break it down into something smaller, I realized the little things in life are the big things. So many people live with an end goal in mind and they are always trying to achieve it. I, on the other hand, have taken a different approach to life. I will live in the moment and try to notice details surrounding me, such as, the way the breeze feels as it glides past my face, or the way a bird is chirping, the flowers that are around me, and so on. The day I began making an effort to slow my thinking down and become cognizant of life that was presently going on around me, was the day I began to feel peaceful inside. The end of this life on Earth is death. I want to be alive while I am here. We do not know the moment we will no longer be here. I want to make every moment I have worthwhile. The journey IS the journey. Enjoy it!
