Never give up

As I sit out here at a 7-9 baseball game I’m almost in tears watching this kid with cerebral palsy play his heart out. He has the biggest grin and is a great player. He’s the pitcher and other than a crooked step you wouldn’t guess he has a battle. He got a great hit and ran his best to first base only to see him have a smile on his face. 

No matter your challenges in life you still can over come and enjoy what’s in front of you. Challenging yes but some times that climb is worth fighting. Enjoy what’s in front of you. Fight for what you want. Some one out there is fighting a harder battle than you. 

Mind Monsters

Mind Monsters I think gets the best of us most days. We quickly analyze, break down, pick apart and insecurely create things in our mind.
At least I do.

Jumping out of my comfort zone pushes me in to a Mind Monster. My insecurities are so crazy that it makes me a different person. We all do this. It’s the fact that we are all trying to figure out life that makes us so lost in what we are doing that forget to just live. Live for the moment. Take it in for what it is. Sitting out of my comfort zone I quickly realize that I made it this far why not enjoy where I am and go that much farther. REALLY! What is the worse that will happen? Right now. This very moment?  Most people will forget what you said. I am always scared that I miss understand something when really will they remember 20 mins from know? If they do I am either really funny or they are so worried about the same thing so they hold on to what I said. Those mind Monsters is what makes you twist and turn that.  We are not much different but are together by being human. When did so much pressure of being some one come upon us? Why can’t we be the person to think out side of the box? Those are the people that normally make the biggest impacts.

Be the person out side the comfort box. Be bigger than your Mind Monster

BE THE IMPACT. Whats the worse that will happen be simply being beautiful you? Don’t let those mind monsters get you down.

 

Some days 

Okay legit finding positives can be easier said than done.. 

Its striving to change the mind set every day. To fight for the positive instead of feel down by the every day grind sounds easy. Some days it’s simply just hard to keep that going.

 It’s so amazing how your world changes by just finding a simple positive. When you are grateful for a strangers smile or even just being able to sit with people you adore. Taking those moments in and allowing it to be positive is what changes the game. 

Life happens. It’s not easy and it’s not all sunshine and awesomeness. It’s an adventure. One with highs and lows. During ours highs we spread our love but we need to remember that during our lows it’s okay to seek those positives.  To sit back and fight for a grateful thought of what is present in today. To help us conquer tomorrow. 

5am bliss

There times in my every day when I get to sit in silence. No tv, no really anything. It’s my bliss my mental start if up for the day. I drink my coffee and totally prepare for what’s a head. I find beauty in this every day. 

I  shake off the sleepys which surprise is a pretty negative grumpy person. Coffee helps me find my way to how I want to impact today. Every day it’s a choice if two paths. One negative and nasty and the other positive and impactful. 

Make today impactful and positive. You never know what will unfold before you. Go in to it ready to let your shine. Not even clouds can stop the sun from shining. 

It could always be worse 

It could be worse. I’m writing this post as a speed walk to my mom’s office so I can get my car keys out of her car.. I get mad at the inconvenience but then quickly laugh

It could be worse. Often times I think we take for granted the little luxuries we use daily or if things don’t go our way. We are getting so consume in the inconvenience of it all that we forget that honestly it could be worse. I could be struggling with something much bigger. 

Life is to short to be upset at the inconveniences instead it’s maybe the world telling you something. Slow down, look at the flowers, notice some one, count the stars. Don’t be so busy or upset but to take notice of the smaller blessings that are happening around you. Truth is it truly could always be worse. 

A talented little weed 

“Some my see a weed others may see a wish”

A few years ago my mom made we watch Susan Boyles audition tape. Watching her walk out on stage and after she was done talking to the judges mom stop the video and asked me “what do you think the judges first impression is?” I pondered I said “probably unsure and that it might be a joke.”  She smile politely at me and continued the video. Susan Boyle sang and amazed every one. She was making people cry and had a standing ovation after she finished. My mom stopped the video again and said “Now what do you think the judges think and feel?” 

My mom showed me that you can never judge a book by its cover. You never know the gift that some one might give you by simply allowing them to be themselves. The person that is softly spoken often times can blow you away with how powerful their mind is. It also shows never to underestimate some ones talent by looks or appearance. Every one has something beautiful to offer. Instead of shutting them down we just need to find a way to encourage them to grow.  


Friends 

I have some of the most beautiful people in my life. 

Seriously the ones that can uplift you and make you laugh all in one moment are the best people. They aren’t closed minded and can help you see in such a different light when everything is dark. 

Every body you want in your life has a spot. It’s either for you to help them or for them to help you. Sometimes they fit to an every day  life and others come and go. I think because friends come in all different shapes and sizes that it’s sometimes hard to know where you stand or even where you want to stand with them. People change. Some good some for worse. Every person that crosses your path teaches you something along the way. 

It’s a beautiful interaction that I often feel is over looked. As I went on a coffee run with a friend today,I truly sat back and and enjoyed my time with this person who was able to understand, support, and encourage me on my level. I often take the beautiful souls in my life for granted.  

So today tell a friend how much they mean to you, because honestly when was the last time you told them how much they meant to you? 

Captain ignorant 

I was once asked if I had a super hero power what would it be?.. I laughed and said ignorance. The person looked dumbfounded. I went on to explain… 

You have heard that ignorance is bliss. If you where ignorant to what was happening in the world wouldn’t it take your stress level down? Anxiety? Would you look and view all people as well people? You literally wouldn’t know better. 

I know this sounds funny but I believe we all need to be a little more  ignorant. We all need to take the chance to learn on a nonbias terms. I have said this before but to sit back and listen..

 Push your own curiosity… listen to a side you may be ignorant to its really amazing what you learn.. 

Sorry I’ve been busy 

Sorry I’ve been busy.. I had to be an adult.

Have pretty flower to make you think happy thoughts 

Bigger person 

Do you ever feel like it sucks being the bigger person..I giggle as I write that cause it sounds horrible. 

Honestly swallowing my pride and being the bigger person is some times hard for me. I have to completely change my mind set of F*@$ you, to being how can I change this to where I’m helping vs causing more of an issue.  Some times this bites because you want nothing more than to just let the person stumble and fall for there own idiotic ways. 

I have a little voice pop in my head or my heart that always says

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid

I have to take a step back and reset how can I be a better teacher. What are they missing to where they are not succeeding?  

The last thing I ever want is to have some think they are stupid. I’ve felt that before as a child. How cruel it is to make an adult feel that. Yet we seem to love bring people down. To fail. 

When you view it that way doesn’t it seem kind of messed up? 

You get a longer return from helping some one succeed than you do if you are helping them fail. 

Be that positive uplifting person. Stand back and take a breath. Figure out how we can hand and hand accomplish something vs setting it all up to be doomed.  We are all fighting for a spot in this world. To be seen to be heard. You could be the one person that has help some one achieve their world. How amazing is that impact?
