Inspiration is "key".....

I decided to write this after I read my dear friends hub here on "Flying." My fellow hubber and friend prasetio30 always puts out a positive message in everything he writes. This I am very thankful for because I always feel good after reading his hubs.

So today I thought about how powerful "positive thinking is" and I thought it would be nice to use the words...


How many times have we waited to make changes? We are all guilty of it. The point is that in order to make the actual changes, you have to do the work. It is not easy and no one knows how all will turn out in the end, but you move forward and embrace it. I had to come to terms with a lot this year and I'm constantly striving towards a more positive life. I'm not going to focus on me only in this article. I want to inspire you to think. How and what can you do to make your life better? Do you feel like you are in the same place as you have been for years? Well currently so many people are making life changes cause they have no choice. Money can serve as a distraction and make people believe things are ok. No time to think when you are out there spending lots of money! Delusion is a good way to avoid reality. We all know someone who does not live in the real world. The person does not have to be wealthy either. Just good at avoiding issues, people and life! If you know someone like this.......RUN!!!!!!! ha

What Can You Do?

Well the first thing I did when I knew something was not right was to evaluate the people around me. My friendships, my family and other relations. I found that my health has suffered the last few years and although it is nothing to worry about, the stress had taken its toll. Making it hard for me to sleep sometimes and the anxiety levels were spiking atleast once a month. Sometimes when you don't realize something toxic in your life is happening, you eventually experience some sort of signs. It could take form in your body and health or also just lead to some form of depression. I'm not a doctor ofcourse and I would never claim to know everything but I do know that unhealthy and toxic situations could only be tolerated for a limited time before it eventually affects every part of your life. This is when you have to make the right choices.

Making The Same Mistake Twice...

This has been my most valuable lesson in life. I have never made the same mistake twice. This I believe is the main reason people are in the same situations and never change. Somewhere along the line they refused to listen to their inner voice and ignore the alarm signals. I never ignore the alarm signals. Even if I know they are there and I choose to continue forward, I eventually hear them loud and clear and move on. I'm hoping that eventually I will hear them LOUDER AND CLEARER and pay attention SOONER!!!! Even if someone or something in your life was not a healthy situation, it is your job to change the relationship, situation or boundaries if it continues. You are the one that has allowed it in your life. You are the one that must change it. The sooner the better!


OK...Here we are at the end of another year. How do you feel? Well I am looking forward to a great year because I have made some big changes. I decided that this year is going to be great nomatter what! I have decided that even if the economy sucks I'm going to find a way to be happy, prosperous and help others that need inspiration, encouragement and confidence!

Because if you are happy, I am happy! Just imagine if we all choose to be HAPPY! Nomatter what! Just imagine the big changes. Just imagine what may happen if you say YES more often and not NO all the time!! Just imagine the world full of compassionate people. Find them and embrace them!

Happy New Year My Friends!!!!!!!!! 2012 WILL ROCK!!! JUST BELIEVE IT! XO

All The Best, GPAGE

This is such an upbeat hub that it makes you happy just to read it and think about the new year in such a positive. I believe happiness is a choice. We all have problems but we can choose our response. Awesome hub, rated up.

Well sometimes saying NO is empowering too and far more important than yes when the person making you unhappy won't take no for an answer!

A lot of people fear change but in a life marked by constant change and challenges I often find myself thinking why didnt I do this sooner! Change is liberating. As an old music teacher of mine once said "life without change is life wihtout colour". Look at how ugly little chrysalids turn into beautiful butterflies for example!

Oh yes, 2011 definitely will rock. As long as we believe it will.

I am about reorganising my life in readiness for 2011. A big change.

There is apprehension of course, but there is also the thrill, knowing its going to be a big and positive change. And the motto i'm embracing in readiness for this is 'forge ahead & never look back'

Reading this great hub, i'm encouraged, happy and further inspired.

Thank you G and GodBless you.

Wow!! A part of me wants to cry and a part of me wants to give you a big hug. This is so touching and certainly in line with what I see ahead for me in this new year. I've noticed a difference in my overall mindset as a result of thinking more positive thoughts over these months and years. I just want to see myself be more consistent with it. Thanks for writing this awesome piece. Excellent writer. Happy thoughts to you in 2011.

One of my favorite quotes has always been Einstein's definition of "insanity": doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.... Its very easy just to continue on, doing the same thing, living the same way, but that truly traps us in an insane existence. Other great words of wisdom from the "Black Eyed Peas" (?) or maybe "10,000 Maniacs" (??? whoever - I've never been very good at who sang the song!).... If it makes you happy, then it must be good: If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad?... Hum?

It takes a lot to change. Unfortunately the stress of having stuck with it so long does not always help us make the right decision. But any decision (to change)is usually better than the status quo... at least it gets things moving, and the momentum always helps.

James..I like what you wrote here. CHANGE is a big theme in my life currently. I am embarking on a new path and I am feeling more and more empowered each and every day. I have recently made a huge decision in my life and it has shaken my foundation. It has propelled me to a new place and I am looking forward to my future. I finally feel "alive" again.......I have a very hard time with change and I am a creature of habit. But I am learning as soon as you make little steps towards taking a different path, all sorts of new things unfold. I can't wait! I hope you are well and happy.......Best, G
