2019, New year new me? Why I am laughing all the way into the New Year

2019 its upon us. So now you have all these big aspirations and plans right? This year will be different.. this year you are going to lose that weight, eat better, change your job blah blah blah. Sound familiar?

Well, if all you do is get up in the morning and live another day and say you made it then far be it from me to judge you.

We don’t have to aspire just because its a new year, if anything now is the time of reflection. Time to see how far we have come. Pat yourself on the back instead of beating yourself up for all the things you didn’t do. The year has gone by and things have changed. You have changed. Think about the loved ones you met the people around you who impacted your life and made it better. Think about the choices you’ve made and the life you are living now.

The future is the future, it is another day that you haven’t been to yet and you can most definitely change it if you want to, but its up to you and only you and no one can tell you how to get there or what you need to do. Only you can. All these superficial things we worry about are not important, they are time wasters, destroyers of happiness, total bullshit.

Be happy now and in the moment of your day and if you decide you would like to change something, do that and let it be personal to you. Those are the victories that mean anything. The ones that you keep and the ones you decide whatever time of year in which you want to do that. Never mind the stupid photos you see on social media of all the people supposedly doing something… in a month they will have given up just like they do every year. Trust me on that I have seen it a thousand times. I can see it now everyone in march (being generous here) asking to cancel there memberships lol.

SO, be kind to yourself.  No one cares at the end of the day what it is you have done because it is not them, care about it because YOU want to do it because it matters to YOU. If anyone sees it and praises you, bonus! But otherwise stop worrying about everyone else and what they are doing that you aren’t. People these days are so self absorbed it wont matter in a month anyway.  Instead just be kind, be thoughtful, don’t hurt anyone and live your life that makes you happy ❤

Persistence is the winner

Often times we think we cannot win in some situations, we don’t have the right tools or the right education or even money to get where we think we need to go.

But not all is lost. We have our persistence that goes far beyond any of those boundaries. Its continued efforts are not so forgotten. If we really want something worth fighting for then education or classification of status is easily surpassed with dedication and fueled passion.

Here is some pearls of wisdom by Alva Folkes that I stumbled across while reading some of her blog: You may not be as experienced, as well funded, as well connected, as talented, but you can always outthink, out hustle, and outwork everyone else. The extra mile is a vast, unpopulated wasteland–everyone talks about the extra mile, but few people go there.

You may not be as experienced, as well funded, as well connected, as talented, but you can always outthink, out hustle, and outwork everyone else. The extra mile is a vast, unpopulated wasteland–everyone talks about the extra mile, but few people go there.
Even when everything else seems stacked against you, effort and persistence can still be your competitive advantages–and they may be the only advantages you truly need.
Power is energy and makes things happen in a good way. – Alva Folkes.

SO when in doubt remember this because it is true and we are indefinitely powerful enough to get what we want if we really want something bad enough!  SO go the extra mile even if you’re not getting paid for it because the return will be rewarded.TIP: People remember the person that did that little something extra because so few do!

Book smarts to get you a paycheck is not the correct way to live a full life, Passion is the gasoline that fuels our drive. If we love what we do then the amount of money we obtain is not the key to our happiness. Giving of yourself of your talents that are more rewarding than any dollar amount.

Glass Half full

 

When you look at a glass that contains a liquid within it, do you look at it as half full or half empty?

This is an age old question of our own outlook on life. If we believe it to be half full then we are more likely to be positive and if we look at it as half empty then we look at it as a negative.

How about if I said to you, you should be happy to have a glass, never mind the clean water it contains. Now lets get to the thoughts which provoked these responses. When we are told as kids that we should be grateful for everything we have how much of that “what we have”, have we decided was a requirement to be happy? Depending on your parents financial gains we decide from young either we want more of what they had or better.

If our parents were not financially well off did we as kids feel ashamed of our family? Because we didn’t have the latest and greatest of the other kids in school? We decided some how because of what someone else had that they MUST be happy inour minds and from TV that those smiling faces enjoying the new beverage or the new trend that it is what makes people happy.

We decided that in order to get what they have we have to be better at everything. We need to work endless hours because we want it bad and if we show the everyone just how hard we work someone will eventually see this and reward our efforts. But what if our efforts are still not rewarded? What if instead we get fired? we lose our happiness?

Why do we define our happiness in the hands of someone else? Why can’t we just be happy now? who gave them the right to hold on to our happiness and decide when we could have it anyway?

We DECIDE what makes us happy, it isn’t about material things really is it? The fact that you opened your eyes to another day and can see, touch, smell and hear is reason enough to be happy. Now lets add the fact that you are able to read this, you have internet! So when life takes a turn we don’t like remember that ourselves provide the happiness in our lives we can change it or rewrite it or move or get another job, start a business, what ever it is. WE MAKE OUR SELF HAPPY by what we think and believe.

I am going to leave you with this amazing video it is life changing. > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K_JK8IRJcQ&t=6s&index=18&list=PL5Ig3iuV1wT7SlSVnPKrvGpJfH__l59XG
