230

Take a minute just to think about your thoughts!

Hello!

It’s been a while. Life has a funny way of taking over sometimes and before you know it the time just goes by.

One may say what is 230? Today is day 230 out of 365.

It’s hard to believe sometimes how fast this year is going. It truly feels like just yesterday the year started.

Sometimes time moves so fast that we really need to stop ourselves just to reflect.

I’ve been doing that a lot lately. Thinking about what I’ve been, still going, and have yet to go through and even though at times when I felt I wouldn’t make it I kept going.

There is a lesson in everything and everyday.  Sometimes we may not see it right there and then and sometimes we do. We meet new people. Reach new milestones. Experience new things. Make new memories, etc. The key to those things is within us to want to choose those things.

So with only 135 days or chapters left in this book, the question for us all is, what will we make of it? Will we keep making memories? Reach new milestones? Keep striving to become a better person every day? The answers only lie within you!

“I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams.”-Oprah Winfrey

May we all continue to gain the courage needed so that we may follow our own dreams.

Hello!

Hope all my readers are doing well.

May 18th, some may wonder?

I will not get into specifics but I wanted to say this, that each day or time, may be significant to one or another, for varies reasons.

For some it may be a beginning. Others, an end. For me, it’s neither a beginning or an end but a memory. Sometimes, with memories, we may not know how to feel or deal with the memory. Maybe, we wanted things to turn out different. Maybe, we don’t know how to move on from the memory. In either case, the picture that is posted is very significant.

It was sent to me by someone who will always be in my life no matter what or how the road turns or how bad the darkness may get. It was sent as a reminder that though there may have been a storm, what comes after may be just as beautiful. That picture shows light. Sometimes, things may seem dark but as I wrote before, at some point if you allow, there will be beauty beyond the storm and darkness.

In harmony with talking about darkness and seeing beauty, I will leave you all with this excerpt from what I think is my favorite book now

“i kept running away from my darkness until i understood that in it i would find my freedom” by Yung Pueblo-inward

So if the road turned without you seeing it, or maybe you did see the turn but didn’t imagine it to take you in a certain direction, and things seem blurry or dark, wait for it.

The beauty will come!

Hope you all enjoyed.

FOREIGN

What comes to mind when you think of the word foreign?

Hello everyone!

Hope everyone is doing well.

You may be wondering why the title “foreign”? Perhaps what comes to mind is being from another country and if so you are partially right. Dictionary.Com gives as one of its definitions as strange or unfamiliar.

I say all that to say this that we are all foreign to each other even if we come from the same place. That’s the beauty of it. The beauty is that while some me see foreign as a negative thing it really doesn’t have to be.

It’s sad that we live in a time where people look at others in a horrible way simply because of how they look from the outside. People judge others based off of what they may have heard or what in their mind they perceive someone to be, why, well perhaps because it is foreign.

When we start something new, perhaps a new job, in some way it is foreign. We may know a little but as time goes by and we learn, what may have seemed foreign, may no longer seem that way. What’s the key, well it’s that we learn.

Take time to get to learn about others. Maybe something about them can’t be changed but maybe we can change the way we see. By doing so perhaps, what may have seemed foreign, may turn out to be beautiful.

Hope you guys enjoyed.

Day 28

Day 28 into this new book we are all writing

Hello again!

Hope all is well with you all. So we are 28 days into this new book that we have. I hope that for you all it is going well thus far.

I picked day 28 to write because when you add the numbers up it brings you to ONE! ONE is you/me. One is who we are before anything.

Recently a friend of mine wrote about self-love. Sometimes in life we may forget about what’s important first-you. It does not have to be a selfish thing. Self-love is important because without it how can we really love others?

We build relationships with others, among others and it’s easy to just forget about being one. We almost forget who we were when we were one. (Now Please I am by no means saying that this happens to everyone or that we should start being selfish)

Take some time for yourself. Take some time to learn about yourself. Take time for anything that will make you a better-one!

This is short and sweet only because I jut wanted to focus on one thing and one thing only-you/me becoming a better one so that essentially together we will all become one!

So continue in the journey of writing your book and may each day/chapter become a better ONE.

Xoxo

2017

A year coming to an end

Hello again!

Today is the last day of this year! As it winds down I think of the next coming year.

I would say 2017 was a lot for me. Physically and emotionally.

I went through some changes in my personal life. Reconnected with old friends. Some helped me to see things differently. Some helped me to see that if I can’t be loved for who I am now than you shouldn’t love me when in your eyes I’ve become better.

I still have a lot of growing to do but I think that growth is a never-ending process. Personally, I’ve learned a lot about myself and the direction I want to go in. Some may agree some may not but for once I need to think about MeMe!

The one thing I’m excited about is that I started this blog. It has been an outlet for me. Going into 2018, I have some visions on where I want to take it and things I’d like to work on to make it and me grow. We never really know where things may lead us but one thing that I know is I can no longer live by FEAR.

I found this acronym for fear: (I do not take credit for this I found it through google)

F-Forget                      F-Face

E-Everything             E-Everything

A-And                         A-And

R-Run                         R-Rise

I must admit that I have always been the type to run and sometimes it is easier to do just that. However, by me doing just that I’ve gotten the same results. So however hard it may or will be, I have to choose the latter. I have to rise and face it. I may fall lots of times along the way but I must continue to get up. It is true some things are easier said than done but whether small or big steps the point is to keep taking them.

Some have said, well you don’t live by what you say and to them they are entitled to their opinion. What I do know is that I’ve taken some steps that for me were hard to take. I am a work in progress and I think it is safe to say that as a human race we all are!

Anyway, what are some goals you all would like for the next year? Remember, keep growing, keep learning but above all do it with a smile because after all a smile is the best accessory one can wear!

Tomorrow is the beginning of twelve new chapters, 365 new days. We get to write the story!

Thank you to those that keep pushing me and have supported me along the way!

Let’s start the book with LOVE and don’t forget your smile!

 

Beauty Beyond Darkness

Can there really be beauty beyond the darkness?

Hello again!

The other day I was outside talking to a friend. We both looked up at the sky, as the day was coming into night and noticed a beautiful end to the sunset. I took a picture and when I showed her she went on to say how beautiful it was even though it was shining through the darkness of the trees.

We both got to talking and both agreed how even with darkness there will always be beauty.

See my friends sometimes in life, we may go through things/situations that at the time may seem dark. But, will we step back to see the beauty? The answer to that lies within us.

Some may go through a breakup. Maybe it will lead to a divorce. Maybe some are left broken inside. Some may be going through what at times can be an incurable disease. Or maybe it can be cured but you have to get through the darkness in order to fight it. Some may go through some sort of injustice. Some may still be dealing with the loss of a loved one. Some may still be healing from the effects from a natural disaster. Maybe some are at a job that they may not be so happy about. Maybe some are struggling with making ends meet. Maybe some are longing to be loved or to be in love!

All those things and more at some point will seem dark. One thing for sure is that through it the beaty will come. We will learn more about ourselves. We will become stronger. We may gain new friendships. We may make old friendships stronger. All and all we will learn to love ourselves and find the beauty within ourselves in a time that may seem dark.

This is for those who may at this time be going through the darkness. Take a moment and look beyond because just maybe you too will see the beauty beyond the darkness
