Realization! :)

“With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.”Β ~Dalai Lama

Having Β a realization is healthy for your mind and body! Have you had a realization lately?! Perhaps you became aware of a bad habit you started involving yourself in that you want to quit, maybe you realized that you wanted to change something in your life, in the hopes that it would make life a little more enjoyable… Realizations can occur anytime, any place, anywhere! Why? Because sometimes having a realization in Safeway, is more natural to the mind because we are doing one of life’s close to every day activities than having that same realization happen at home while sleeping. πŸ™‚ Point being, realizing you need or want something is the perfect way to making it happen! πŸ™‚

Do you have a realization you have been working on? Are you trying to find ways to make yourself happy? A lot of time a realization occurs when we want to make some sort of change or our minds and hearts want to remind us of life’s most important lessons and focuses! Perhaps today you will have some sort of realization, or in other words, something that you find you want to work on! πŸ™‚ It could be a starting a Fitness Program at your local gym, it could be starting to read a book for school that you have to finish by March, or it could be something as simple as giving your Mom and Dad a call every evening just to check in and make sure they are doing well and to tell them how much you appreciate and love them!! ❀

Remember: Life is about improving yourself each and every day! One moment and realization at a time! πŸ™‚

“Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding.”Β ~Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

Digging For Gold, Reaching The Stars! :)

“The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.” ~Orison Swett Marden

Do you ever feel as if you are reaching for stars you can’t seem to see? Remember that life is about taking a chance! πŸ™‚ Do you ever feel like you are digging for gold but all you’re finding is granite? Remember that beauty and opportunity comes in different forms!! πŸ™‚

Sometimes it is hard to keep coming up with different things to search for! At moments you can feel like your not searching for anything, but then something comes up and you find yourself busy taking on the next challenge that life has to offer you! πŸ™‚ Remember that although you may not always be able to see the stars, they are ALWAYS there! Let’s think of our dreams, hopes, goals, and aspirations as stars and gold! Let’s think of ourselves as the miners digging for our buried gold and treasures and the astronauts flying to the moon to catch our stars!! Life can be easier when we let our imagination be the guide to our reality!! πŸ™‚

This coming week, remember that you are golden!! Remember that you WILL catch and reach those stars, that you will find the pure gold that you have been mining for!!! ❀

“What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

It All Comes Naturally! :)

“Nothing leads to good that is not natural.” ~Friedrich Schiller

Let all that is within you come naturally! πŸ™‚ Remember that everything comes naturally! Do not stress over life’s small and big tasks! Life is demanding enough and we have to remember that it all comes naturally! Whatever you have to do and get done, you will do it the best possible and productive way you can!! πŸ™‚ You are more than capable of overcoming every challenge that comes your way! πŸ™‚

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by how much we do that just isn’t natural? Natural meaning, no strings attached, no frills and lace, no money, or politics involved…. just natural! Hiking, walking, loving, hugging, dancing, realizing that life is made up of the moments that stay within our hearts, not just within our minds! We are composed of natural beauty and goodness! πŸ™‚ Let’s try to remember that if it is meant to be, it WILL come naturally! πŸ™‚ Just like doing your job, it all eventually comes naturally to you! πŸ™‚ Doesn’t it feel fantastic when you know that you can do what is expected of you, and also know that all you do, you do well?

Today, remember that all of us have natural gifts within us! No one was born without purpose! You have purpose and meaning, never forget what has meaning and what it means to do your best!! ❀ Have a fabulous day!!! ❀

“It’s nice to just embrace the natural beauty within you.”Β ~Victoria Justice

“They invented hugs to let people know you love them without saying anything.” ~Bil Keane

Shedding Our Skin!:)

“I don’t have regrets, there are only lessons. You learn from them, and you become a better person.” ~Nicole PolizziΒ 

Just like a snake sheds old skin, just like a cat sheds old fur, we shed too! Not in the same way, but we do shed old personalities with new ones, we shed old looks with new looks, and we shed old times with new times! We are constantly changing and it reminds me of just how healthy it is to shed old skin! Change is so healthy and while it may feel uncomfortable at times, it really is does have the power to make our lives better!

Do not be afraid to seek out newness in your life. Sometimes all you need is a change in scenery or perspective! Keep all the good you have within you, and release any negativity that perhaps you are holding onto! By allowing ourselves to change, we are giving ourselves the room and space to grow!

Embrace yourself with every new change! Do not be ashamed of letting yourself become a new person! Embrace every newness that you that you choose to create within your life! ❀

As you learn who you are, you can better surround yourself with friends who make you a better person, and that sometimes only happens when you disassemble old relationships.” ~Maggie Stiefvater

Own What You Say!:)

“Sticking to your values, listening to your instincts, making your own choices is so important.” ~Brittany Murphy

Have you ever met someone who seems so wonderful, they speak about life with such enthusiasm, they make you believe that treating others is important, yet they never live up to their own words? Does it disappoint you when you meet someone who doesn’t meet the standards that you thought they had for themselves?

Today is about owning what we say! Yes, we make mistakes, everyone does, but most of the time we need to just own what we say! Part of the way we relate to others is by how much trustworthiness they contain. When I hang out with people, I like to know that they practice what they preach. Or in other words that they follow their own advice, or take their own medicine!

If we don’t follow our own rules, how can we expect others to? Be the person that your mouth tells other people you are! The most common form of getting to know someone is by talking with them and sharing your beliefs, your view on how the world should be, and how you choose to act! Being a beautiful human is so easy! πŸ™‚ We insist on making life complicated but what if we didn’t? What do you think would happen if we just owned up to our mistakes? What would happen if we didn’t use action to demonstrate our anger but instead used our words? We if we all tried to be our best all of the time? Perhaps we would form a stronger and more united group of people! πŸ™‚

You know how back in school or perhaps you are still in school, where your math textbook would tell you to simplify the problem? I don’t know about you, but for the longest time, I always tried to solve the problem instead of just simplify it! It was funny because simplifying a problem is actually much easier than solving one, but my brain wanted to make it complicated, it really wasn’t necessary. Do you have that same issue, but instead of math, you apply the principle to life? So, in other words, you try to make life more complicated than it has to be? It is true if you really think about! πŸ™‚ It makes me think of this quote by M.C. Escher that I just saw that says, “We adore chaos because we love to produce order.” Perhaps that’s why we create problems, so that we have something to solve? Think about it!

Remember this: Own what you say! Listen to your instincts! Practice what you preach! Take a moment to realize that you have to respect yourself before others can respect the person you are! ❀ Simplify your life, don’t complicate it! πŸ™‚

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” ~Steve Jobs

Adventure!:)

“Anytime I feel lost, I pull out a map and stare. I stare until I have reminded myself that life is a giant adventure, so much to do, to see.” ~Angelina JolieΒ 

Every now and then I believe it is very fun and very healthy to take an adventure!! Maybe it’s a hike through the mountains, a walk along the beach, taking an unknown path through the forest, perhaps as a kid, it was doing something sneaky like taking a secretive walk to the kitchen to steal a cookie! πŸ™‚ What’s your definition of an adventure?

Life is a really incredible adventure, don’t you think? At times we find ourselves climbing a big mountain, such as working really hard to graduate from school, or at other times we might be on a curvy and long road where the signs up ahead aren’t very clear, and it’s figuring out what we are going to do next with our life, sometimes it’s nice to look at life with a different point of view! πŸ™‚

Adventure can be described inΒ so many different ways! It’s either an amazing metaphor or the real deal, or something else that you make it to be! πŸ™‚ Have you taken a fun adventure lately? Have you gone on a hike? Or taken a walk with your loved one(s)? Sometimes getting some fresh air, being out with nature, providing your beautiful brain and body with some new scenery, and having sometime to process life in a different worldΒ can be really beneficial for you! πŸ™‚

Remember this: Adventure is right outside your front door! You don’t have to hop on an airplane and go to Europe to have a fun adventure! πŸ™‚ However. if you have the money and time to hop on an airplane and go to Europe, I would never discourage you from doing so! πŸ˜‰ Adventure is healthy!!! And adventure is out there!!! You just have to seek it out!!! πŸ™‚ You don’t always need a plan or need to know what you’re going to do next. Sometimes you have to just take a fun adventure and let the answers come to you! ❀

Perhaps this evening after work and/or school, you’ll seek out an adventure! Sometimes the greatest and best ideas come to us when we are simply doing something different with our life! πŸ™‚

KEEP ON SMILING AND HAVING FUN!!!! πŸ˜€

“It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves – in finding themselves.” ~Andre Gide

Dealing With Life!:)

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” ~Joseph Campbell

Today’s blog is just a bit different! Not to worry, my goal is always to inspire you and to leave you with a positive sense of who you are. I plan to do that today butΒ the topic of life can be a bit hard to talk about.

Life is a topic that so many of us ponder and it’s what we live every day. We wake up every day, we go about our routines, we smile, we cry, we receive great news, we receive tragic news, we love each other, we fight, we argue, etc., etc. Life is full of happiness and sadness. It’s a bittersweet world. It’s not full of all things that are good, but it’s also not full of all things that are bad. At times life can seem so challenging and so difficult, but at other times it feels as though the sun has be shining forever. It’s amazing howΒ things change so drastically from one day to the next.

Do you ever wish we were given an instruction manual on how deal with hardship? Perhaps we would find comfort in having another instruction manual on how to love someone?… Why? Because while love is often the positive force that drives us all to keep going, it can leave someone feeling almost as empty as any hardship would…. Right?…. Maybe not? Because even an instruction manual could never quite prepare us for the tragedies that strike our lives so deeply.

I feel that it is in times of hardship that we tend to remember why love is so crucial in our lives. It’s the force or power responsible for bringing human beings together since the beginning of time. It’s what has mended families of desperation, heart ache, and tragedy. It’s what has brought us together at big gatherings such as graduations, birthday celebrations, and weddings. It’s the thread with which we mend a broken heart, it’s the sunshine which dries our tears, and creates happiness for most people!

It’s important that we recognize how important WE are! While we do have feelings of hopelessness, despair, and loss, we must remember that those feelings DO pass. It may take time, we may have to cry and get very upset, but they do pass. And when those feelings of sadness leave we are slowly but surely brought back to this sense of hopefulness, clarity, and goodness. Do not harm yourself because of something else that has caused you despair. That’s why we have friends, family, and each other. Remember that although we are capable of letting each other down, we are also even more capable of helping each other up! Life is a rocky and bumpy road. Hold onto the ones you love and to the moments that captivate you! Let us enjoy each others company! Let us show compassion and strength in the midst of sadness and heart ache. Let us be thankful for the beauty that life gives to us each and every day! ❀

“Kindness, I’ve discovered, is everything in life.” ~Isaac Bashevis SingerΒ 

Doing The Job You Love! :)

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” ~Confucius

Do you love the work you do? Do you love the feeling you get after working a long day, knowing you did your job right? πŸ™‚ Well, my friend, keep doing the work you love because the work you do today, benefits the person you are tomorrow! πŸ™‚ You have EVERYTHING it takes to be a successful and hard working individual!! All it takes is persistence, passion, and patience! Remember that being successful can take some time! Be patient with your job and with yourself! No one starts off being an expert, we must all start from the beginning and work our way up in the world! πŸ™‚

I find that attitude is really what working is all about! It determines the amount of work you get done, how good you feel about the work you do, and the pace at which you work! πŸ™‚ Keeping a positive mental attitude will keep your brain juices flowing and more importantly keep your brain a positive place!! πŸ™‚

Choose to work at a place in which you feel comfortable! πŸ™‚ We all need to feel good about the kind of work we are doing and we also need to keep improving our life! As we work, we acquire more and more job skill, all which has the potential to lead us to bigger, better, and more terrific job opportunities! Keep your head up! πŸ™‚

Don’t lose hope!! πŸ™‚ Sometimes we have little epiphanies in life where we ask ourselves, “Is this (meaning your work) all there is to life?” Work! Work! Work! The answer is, “Of course not!” Work is only the base foundation that helps make the rest of your life possible! Because without financial support it becomes almost impossible to support not only yourself but also your loved ones! Remember to take moments out of your day where you can relax and make some time for yourself! We all deserve a break now and then! We all need to enjoy what we are doing! ❀

Maintain a positive and professional co-worker and boss relationship! πŸ™‚ When we can all get along, it makes for lots of happiness, and then work merely feels like fun! πŸ™‚ And life is all about having FUN!!! πŸ™‚

Be proud of what you do!!! πŸ™‚ We all have special qualities to being to the table! πŸ™‚ Let us not forget how special each of us individuals are! πŸ™‚

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” ~Vince LombardiΒ
