LIFE IS A BOWL OF CHERRIES - Enjoy The Ride!
So today is a new day!!
How many times have you woken up and truly asked yourself if you "matter?" Probably not much unless you are facing a "life or death" situation. But the thing is that we will all eventually ask this question when we are nearing the end of our horizon? The point is that I feel we should ask this question now and make a list of all the wonderful things that we have each put on this earth and rejoice! It's like we are each adding something "special" to the "soup of life!" And we are all evolving and sharing ideas, thoughts, photo's, stories, sad news, good news.....you name it!!!
This is what I like to call "LIFE SOUP!" Do you want some?
So this my friends is "mid-life" and here is where things go "topsy tervy" for so many of us!!! Changes in circumstances, relationships, employment, kids growing up, family members getting old, addictions, saving the world and whatever else I can think of!!!
"Fear" rears it's ugly head......
Remember those fears when you were a child? Well they eventually come back but the problem is that we now have so much more to lose!!! So this childhood fear is now "adult fear" and it all hits a bit harder then "way back when." SO, what can we do when we are facing "fear?!!!"
It is easy for me to say "kick it in the !@#" but that is not realistic for everyone in this world. Some fear is so deep rooted that we never know where it comes from? Fear shows it's face in many places while we make our way through "life." What I have learned is that "fear" can also drive a person to move forward also. Taking little steps to conquer this fear can work wonders but you need to take that "first step" or you will wallow in anxiety and indecision. Not fun!!!
Facing something very scary....
I spoke to a special someone in her 70's this morning who was having questions about her life and whether she mattered enough to stay on this earth. She was about to go into surgery and was losing it and very emotionally confused....so I called her and told her some real facts about life and why she should stay. At the end of our conversation she was in good spirits and had a lot to say. I told her to giggle to God when she goes into surgery and be proud for all her quirks and differences. Actually I told her to be proud that she was a "loving whack job." I mean that is much better then never loving at all! RIGHT?!!! This did make her laugh a lot! "So be it!"
The point is that "everyone matters" and everything you do on this earth brings forth some sort of result. So the best thing we can do is give as much "positive" everything to anyone around us. There is no time for a "pity party" cause this just wastes a lot of time. Wouldn't it be better to reach out to loved one's and friends instead of thinking about only scary and bad things? Fear takes away LOVE so get rid of your fear and give more love! Capiche?!!!!!!
I Choose Life and Love!
As a friend of mine told me recently about an experience in therapy with her partner, it did not go too well. But the therapist pointed to the one that was not "getting it" and said these words. "You have the power to make it better."
Everyone has the power to make things better. Start right in your living room today.....you hate that chair and couch? Throw it out!!! After all it reminds you of "you know who" or things that make you feel bad. Is that person constantly making you feel bad and bringing you down? Highly critical of your life choices? Throw them out!!! Life is too short!!!!
YOU CAN DO IT!!! TIME IS TICKING RIGHT BY.....CHOOSE LIFE!!! EMBRACE IT!!!!!
