I turn the world around…

I know it’s been a while since I have posted anything here on the site, but, here I am. Alive and well. Well, as well as I am going to be for the moment. No, things are good (all things considered), but getting reintroduced to my form of civilization has been a little bit of a process. Alot has gone on, and will continue to do so, but, things are looking up.

The old self would have probably exploded, or have just given up by now, but I said old self. Gone are those days. Sure, I’m still working on things, but everyone should strive to be better, EVERYDAY, not just when it’s convenient, or when “things go wrong”. Do I still get stressed? Sure. I won’t lie. But the key is in how you handle the stress and how you look at all things looking for the positives, and for the lesson to be learned by your experiences.

So, mending a broken relationship, dealing with the joblessness and other related issues back here in the good ‘ol US of A, I still believe that in the end, it will all be better than it was before. And that’s what you, and everyone else should feel. Use the events in your life as stepping stones. Experience, learn, grow. What other alternatives are there? Be human. Be well…

But I’m hangin’ tough…Day, by, day, by, day, by, day.

You’ve heard, as well as I have, people say “one day at a time”. Great saying. It’s easier to deal with things that are troubling us, or in our way, if we just chip away at it, taking it one step at a time. It’s better to take things slow, and deal with things one piece at a time, finding the solution to the puzzle.

But most of us allow ourselves to get overwhelmed with eveything at once, and then we just look at it and say that we can’t handle it. We use it as an excuse, and take the cowards way out. Is that really what you want to be known for, being a coward, a quitter?

Practice makes perfect, so right now is the moment to do what you need to in order to overcome anything thrown your way, and for you to have what you want out of life. Let’s not be cowards. Let’s hang in there and take it one step, piece, and day at a time.

Don’t need no one, that’s no good for me…

When things in our life are on the negative side, we surround ourselves with just that, negativity. We never think that by our actions, we attract that which we don’t want in the first place. We attract negativity into our lives in many shapes and forms. It may be people, places, or things.

Surrounding yourself with the right things, positive things is really the way to go. It may not seem like things are getting better right away, but the right attitude will get you there. You also need patience. Keeping positive and good people in your life will also help you greatly.

So if there’s anything that is negative, and that can hold you down, don’t subject yourself to it. If so called “friends” or even family members aren’t there to lift you up, or help make things better, make the change. Now, you don’t necessarily have to alienate them, but try surrounding yourself with the right things and the right people, because let’s face it, we don’t need anyone, or anything, that’s no good for us.

Everybody’s looking for something…

Everyone has ideas and dreams in their mind. We all have wants and sometimes even daydream about doing things we want to do, or love doing. But what happens? Life. Life gets in the way. Or does it? Can it be that we are the ones that just give up, and let life get in the way?

What does that even mean? Think about it. Life gets in the way. Does it really make any sense? The more I think about it, the more I believe that statement is just false. A lie we all use. An excuse. Life isnt supposed to “get in the way”. It’s supposed to flow, and move. And if it does stop moving, ask yourself what’s the cause.

So, dont let anyhting in life get in the way of dreams and things you want out of life. Make it flow. Don’t be the blockage that slows, or stops you. Dont’t be the one that takes part in destroying your dreams and not getting what you want out of life. Yes, I was, and am guilty of this too, but we need to hold our heads up high, and keep moving on…

You know enough to know the way…

A lot of us go through he same things in life. We are all in this together. We also need to realize that a lot of the solution is within ourselves. We have the power to overcome and make changes. We do. But, there’s always an excuse, always someone else to blame.

Why continue playing the blame game and making excuses? That gets really old, really fast, doesn’t it? I know in my experiences, I would make excuses, blame other things or people, or even go so far as make someone else the scapegoat. All because I couldn’t deal with the tormented existance that I was suffering through.

Others are in the same boat. You know you’re out there. We all should know better. Enough of the nonsense and begin taking what you want out of life. Time to say enough and be the person you want to be. We need to continue tapping into that inner strength and find our tomorrow today.

For the sins of our hands…

 A lot of people adapt the “gloom and doom” attitude when it comes to certain things. Many also look at life through cynical eyes. Does it really make sense to look at things that way? I used to be that way, and thinking back, it just did more harm than good.

They say you attract what you release. I find that there is truth to that. If you look at things negatively, and always though a cynics eyes, what do you think that will get you? We need to look at things in a positive light, even though, yes, it could be hard at times.

But it’s up to us, isn’t it? Up to us to be the ones, a catalyst if you will, to be willing to let go of our egos, our pride, our lack of understanding, and willingness to look for the silver lining in all situations. Let’s not let negativity get the best of us. Stand up, let go, and be the catalyst to attract the positive things you want out of life.

By subtleties that we are not aware of…

We all have troubles. We all have faults. Most of us have so many things in common. EVERYONE has obstacles to overcome. It’s either a situation currently in your life, a past occurrence, or maybe it’s a few personality flaws. I myself have, and do go through all of the above, and I’m sure most of you do as well.

Life’s not perfect, we are not perfect. There’s flaws all around. It’s how we deal with the flaws and imperfection in life. It’s all about how we can control what we can control, and let go of all the rest.

So, we are all damaged to one degree or another. A lot of people go through the same kinds of hardships and personal issues. We are not alone. None of us. We just need to remember that we should live our lives to the fullest, realize that things can’t always be perfect.
