What color do you think the dress is???

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA            Today trending on our social media platforms is, somebody within another country put out there on their social media, a picture of a dress and asked if you know the color of the dress? Really!!! Is this the drama we all get into these days? Shows just how shallow we all have become.

This picture I have here is of a road off of the beaten path, I guess my question is, do you know where this little back road will bring you? Why not if everyone else can come up with something like the color of a dress to create drama, then why can’t I get people to explore and learn new things or even better, while you are exploring just maybe you learn of yourself, so you can be better and stronger on your path of your journey of life.

True we are all Humans in this God created planet, true we are all similar to each other, also true that we are unique to each other, with our own minds and souls, but it is also true that it takes all kinds to make this World and Society work in the way God had envisioned it to work.

Now don’t get me wrong, I would much rather worry about the color of a dress, than have a group like ISIS take things and destroy things around me that I hold dear, but because of all the drama in our Society, we will always have these types of groups, because like people trying to get us to respond to this dress thing, we will always have others trying to force us with fear, in order for us to see their twisted views, this is us as Humans being Human and being unique to each other, just that a certain few will take this uniqueness and swing it in a way, that their way is the only way.

In a way we have all been responsible for this drama and this fear that the Terrorist use, in order to try to have all the power over us all, we the people have created all the technology that brings this social media to us and we have become lazy by it, because we don’t socially interact face to face anymore, instead we stay behind our techy devices and text or message each other all the time, we have forgotten the art of how to interact with other. When you walk down the road everybody is looking down to their devices and not looking up and simply saying hello anymore, we have lost the confidence in ourselves, in order to react to what ever life throws in our direction, without this confidence and being lazy through our social media, we are easy pickings for these groups like ISIS to come in and control us like a rag doll.

This road in the picture is kind of like our journey through life, we have to explore it in order to see where it goes? While we explore we learn new things, not just of what is around us, but we also learn of ourselves, which gives us the confidence to fight through what ever life throws in our direction, while we learn and explore, we have no time for this laziness to come into our lives, no time to procrastinate as we handle all things as they come to us, than as we come across other Humans, we see them face to face which helps us in becoming socially inclined as well, plus we will truly see that we are all very similar as Humans, just that we are unique to each other, in the way we think with our minds, just because someone may think one idea is far fetched, doesn’t mean that the idea won’t work, it just means that someone wasn’t lazy and actually worked at getting the idea out there and through this idea, may have helped this person become stronger in self confidence, so they can achieve anything they set out to do, along their path of their journey of life.

” Who cares what color the dress is, the real question is, Do you know where the road of life will bring you?”

” when we explore and not become lazy through social media, it gives us self confidence and the ability to learn many things without all the drama, as we walk our journey through life”

Whats up with the Boston Bruins?

The Boston Bruins, a hockey team I grew up watching, a player named Bobby Orr who I idolized, with another handful of players I enjoyed very much to watch, like Ray Bourque, Cam Neely, Gilles Gilbert, Rick Middleton to name a few, these Boston Bruins have had it’s share of great player’s and to witness three Stanley cup championships in my lifetime is a great honor, from my favorite team.

I would be lying if I said that I wouldn’t want them to win another one, we all want to win and see our favorite players bask in the joy of victory, we the true Bruins fan have seen our share of losing years, like 39 years til they won again in 2011, which is what makes it sweet when they actually do win it all. What the Bruins do have is a competitive Management team in place and it all starts with Cam Neely, Cam was a player that the Bruins traded Barry Peterson for, sent Barry to Vancouver and Cam here to Boston, the rest is history. Cam with his toughness and good puck sense, had changed what the term power forward was and is looked at today. Cam since retiring and becoming the Bruins President, has taken this competitiveness and toughness from the ice, into his office in the way he leads this organization, the year they won the cup in 2011, had Cam’s finger prints all over this team and to this day in a few of the Bruin players today.

In 2011 when the Bruins hoisted the Lord Stanley cup high throughout the city of Boston and shared it proudly with all the fans, they were a very difficult team to play against, they didn’t have that big name goal scorer, what they did have was a whole team that could score, all four lines producing at a high level each and every game. The one thing that breeds this is Team chemistry. Even though there are still some core players left from the championship team, there are a few players missing that brought this chemistry, chemistry never shows up on the nightly game stats, it only shows up within all the players of the team and is what makes them very difficult to play against, team chemistry is a bond between the players, that makes them a family on and off the ice and having each others backs, no matter what situation that may cross their paths.

These Boston Bruins of today and with the core of players they still have since 2011, can they get back that “team chemistry”? You bet they can, but it also takes a big commitment from the Management and the coaching staff, so they can bring in the right players, who will form this bond that will ultimately give them the chemistry, to be once again a very tough team to play against from any team in which they face. You don’t necessarily need the best goal scorers, just a few that bond together and with each of their strengths, plus the strengths of the team, become a great hockey team once again. The Boston Bruins are just a few chess pieces away from regaining their championship team, forget about the drama from the Boston sports Media, as these guys really no nothing of any sport and if they don’t create the drama, then they would be out of a job. Just simply trust in Cam Neely and his team, to once again build a championship Boston Bruins hockey team, for us true Bruins fan to enjoy once again.

” Boston Bruins hockey is about being tough and competitive to play against, not the flashy give me the puck for “my” goal”

” Team chemistry comes from a bunch of players coming together and forming a bond, to play for each other and have each others backs, no matter what that may come before you”

The true world that is Hollywood……

Just like all Mankind and everything around us, Hollywood has changed and in a way that promotes a fake reality. Hollywood creates these shows and movies, hires all these Actors and Actresses and gives them a script to become someone in which they truly are not. Hollywood in a lot of ways is just like the news media and do nothing but create much drama, to an already drama driven Society.

Don’t get me wrong, there are some good shows and movies out there, with the show NCIS being the best show of them all and as close to reality as you can get in a show, but the majority of Hollywood is nothing but a fake reality and does nothing but, forces us to  try to be like what the actor’s portray in the movies. Real Life and Life in Hollywood are very different from each other, but Hollywood wants to suck us in, so we spend our hard earned money and Hollywood lives the good life of leisure.

Ultimately it is us the fan that buys into Hollywood and if we don’t buy in, then Hollywood can’t live their plush and lavish lifestyles. Not to mention they can’t sell their warped portrayal of what they think life should be, just like a Journalist gets a scoop on a story, then writes that story in their own words to try to create the most drama, Hollywood does the same thing in how they write their movie scripts, then the Actor acts and reads from that script, while becoming someone they totally are not.

Every year you have the Oscar’s, these are awards for the the best movie, Actor’s, Actresses ect…. throughout the year. This award show is put on by Hollywood as the grandest of grand with a huge amount of money spent on this yearly event, they also sell it to us as, you have to watch it so they can show off what they think is the best trophy ever? Then you have Actor’s and Actresses instead of just accepting and saying thank you, they use it as a platform to get political of whatever they feel to be political about, Politics has no place in Hollywood and vice versa, it seems like everything Hollywood does, they have to spin it in a political way? If Hollywood wants to get political, then put your money where your mouth is and spend some of that big money, to help Society grow and end homelessness throughout this Country, instead of lining your own personal pockets and living the plush, luxurious lifestyle, while others throughout this Country live on the streets with nothing to show of their existence here on Earth.

Hollywood is in the business to make movies, they employ a large diversified work force, this work force then has to do what the employer wants or they won’t be employed any further, just as you and I in our jobs do as well, but what Hollywood tends to forget is, if they don’t have this workforce or the consumer who views their product, then there is no drama to create, let alone not having huge amounts of money to live their plush and luxurious lifestyles. Now you also have some Actor’s who have made huge amounts of money through Hollywood, then they think that they are on a pedestal above everyone else, because of their great wealth? They use Hollywood as their “soapbox” to force their views on the rest of us, they think we have to listen to them cause they are more wealthier than us, I have news for them, money don’t make you better than the rest of us, but if you put your money where your mouth is, just maybe the rest of us will look at you differently?

Hollywood with all its drama and fake reality, is not what this Society needs right now, this Society we live today is a “broken society” and to fix it we all have to be on the same playing field, the money that is being spent foolishly and selfishly throughout this Society is nothing but wasted money, if Hollywood and other Corporate companies and even our Government, would spend the money more wisely in areas that is needed most, just maybe this Society would be a better place for all that walk their paths along their journey of life.

” Hollywood is about making movies, it is not about being political or standing on top of the soapbox to force their views on others”

” Hollywood makes a huge amount of money, if they spent that money wisely and not foolishly, just maybe we could live within a better Society”

Family…The true secret to the Journey of life.

Family is the bond within us as Individuals that brings us together, so we can walk our paths along our journey of life, to be better and stronger within peace, while we share our love of self’s with those around us.

Within each Family you have a Mother and Father, these two Individuals don’t go to school for parenting, there is no books to read, so how do they become parents? It is their love of self’s, which they bring to each other, then share this together as they raise their children into a Society, so they to can become parents and share their love of self’s to form a family of their own.

When building this family bond, it starts first with building a strong foundation, that will stand the test of time and never crumble, no matter what that may try to crumble it. This foundation is stronger than anything that all Mankind can build, it becomes so solid that nothing will penetrate it, not even any life event that may happen to us.

The foundation of family is built out of love, respect and trust of each family member, when any of these components have been violated is when you have broken families. Within this broken Society shows just how broken families affect us all. Families become broken in many ways, but the foundation stays intact, just that we as Individuals don’t look with clear eyes and everything becomes out of focus for us. What starts this foundation for all of us is, you need a Mother and Father together with each of their traits, sharing their love together so the base of the foundation becomes stronger as each layer is laid on top of it.

Families within our Society is the only thing we have, that we can go to, when we need help and are troubled in our own lives. Without families we have nothing and leads us into a life of solitude, we may be lonely and not seeing with clear eyes and everything may seem out of focus, but the foundation of family is always there, solid as it ever was, just that we choose not to acknowledge it and through the clouds of our judgements, we think we can overcome anything alone without family.

With all the broken families within this broken society, shows only one thing and that is there is too much solitude all around us, nobody shares love anymore, which is a lot easier than showing this hate and solitude we see now, instead of turning to the foundation of family when we hurt, we let our clouded judgement turn us in a direction we normally would never turn to, this judgement makes us someone we truly are not, if we only trusted the strength of the foundation, showing the respect of the families love and being who we truly are, just maybe our clouded judgements would clear up enough, so when we hurt and are troubled, the direction we turn would be toward family and not the direction of solitude. We all walk a path along a journey of life, family is the one true direction to turn when we need to the most, so we can be better and stronger and live our lives in peace with others, instead of the chaos of solitude and hate.

” Family is to each of us, like a fish needs water so they can survive in their world”

” When we hurt and have much pain, it is the foundation of family that gives us the strength to move forward along our paths of our journey of life”

The Season of Lent

The Season of Lent is the Catholic way of reflecting on the journey of Jesus Christ. All other Religion of faiths celebrate and call his journey by a different name, but the one common denominator is Jesus Christ himself. Jesus never discriminated anybody and treated everybody as equals, unlike the people of this Society today. We the people are whats wrong with this Drama driven Society and we the people can change this if we really focused our energy to it.

When Jesus walked his journey with us, he taught us many things and showed us just how special the true path of righteousness really is, he sacrificed himself so the rest of us can be at peace, this is how his father The Almighty God wanted it to be, so we the people can see the true positive, of what true change really is. True change sometimes can be difficult and bring much pain to us, but when we accept the true change, do the work needed to apply it, then yes we to can find that true path of righteousness that Jesus showed and walked with us.

Within the season of Lent and all the names that other Religions call their remembrance of the journey of Jesus Christ, is a special time for all Catholics and other faiths around the globe, with the Catholics celebrating Lent, other faiths should celebrate with us, by respecting our views and beliefs, as we Catholics do of them during their celebration of the journey of Jesus Christ. This celebration and respect of each other is one of the things Jesus taught us as he walked with us, it is we the people that have wavered from the teachings of Jesus.

There is always going to be life events and other things that will happen to us throughout our journey of life, these events will and can control every fiber of our being if we let them, they will also bring us much pain and anxiety and we will do anything to try to stop the pain, but what we forget is, when we suffer great pain, Jesus suffers great pain with us, Jesus came to us to teach us many things, he will never leave us alone even if we feel like we are alone with no where to go? The power of Prayer works in ways we can’t explain, but God and Jesus do hear our Prayers and are always with us, within the hearts and souls of each and every one of us.

Now as we celebrate the journey of Jesus Christ, let us all remember and reflect on the lessons he taught us when he came and walked his journey with us. Let us all truly feel the warmth of his love for us deep within our hearts and souls and as we feel this warmth, let us then share this warmth of his love with all that is around us, there is always going to be temptation in our lives, as Jesus also had to deal with this, temptation only shows that Satan is alive and well within our Society and the group ISIS is prime example of this, but during this time of Lent and reflecting on the journey of Jesus Christ, we to can resist this temptation as Jesus did, by staying true to self and the Lord God, who created us and all that is around us. When we stay true to ourselves and feel the warmth of Jesus love within our hearts and souls, then share this warmth and love with all those around us, this shows our father the Lord God, that yes we did listen and learn from Jesus and with the power of prayer at our disposal, helps us communicate better with God, as well as with each other within this Society, So as we all find this true path of righteousness, let us all share with each other, so we all can walk our paths along our journey of life in peace, while we become better and stronger throughout the evolution of Mankind and God will then be happy of all of us, as his vision of Mankind will than become a true reality

” The Season of Lent may be a Catholic celebration, but the true celebration is that we all learn from the journey of Jesus Christ and show his love with all, no matter what faith of religion you belong to”

” Jesus never showed discrimination of anybody on his journey, this is only we the people that shows this towards each other”

Ashes to Ashes within a journey of life.

Ash Wednesday………. To some it is just another day, yet to others it is a day of reflecting, to check the inventory and the archives of our lives to date, take stock in where we are and see if we are still on the track we set out on, or did we waiver from that track, has things happen that has derailed us from our original plan.

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, for those Catholics who don’t follow Religion as they should, it is also for anybody that wants to follow the spirit of God, for he does not discriminate unlike we the people of Mankind and the creation of the Lord God himself. Somewhere along the journey of life, we the people have ventured away from the true purpose of life, we have strayed onto paths that we don’t truly understand, in ways that we want to find our own fruits in life and want to put ourselves above all, as we try to take credit for everything we see around us.

God wants us all to succeed on our paths of our journey of life, he has real pain when we hurt in our lives, we are his creation and the warmth we feel inside our hearts and souls, is God himself with his love for us all, but what we forget to understand is, this love he has within our hearts and souls, is not just meant for each of us individually, it is meant for us to share with each other as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

To truly show how God loves each of us, he sent his one and only son to us named Jesus. Jesus like us walked a path along his journey of life, he healed the less fortunate, he cured the sick, he taught us many things of ourselves, but what he taught us most is to find the way to the true path of righteousness, so we all here on Earth can walk our paths of our journey of life, share the warmth of God’s love inside us with each other, so we all can walk our paths of our journey in peace, in order to be stronger and better, as all Mankind evolves over time.

The season of Lent is a special time, it is a time for us to get back in touch with God and Jesus, it is also a time for us to get back in touch with ourselves, don’t be afraid to show our love of selves to each other, it is also a time of sacrifice, we all have something in our lives to give up, that something we keep trying to forget, but keeps coming back to haunt us, maybe it’s something small but we are embarrassed of others knowing of it, whatever it may be it is time to rid ourselves of it, time to come clean in the eyes of God, so we then can come clean within the core of our souls. Through the season of Lent is the time for each one of us and it doesn’t matter who you are, to cleanse our souls of all the crap we have been carrying around, so come the time of Easter we can also rise up like Jesus did and be free, show more empathy and remorse of each other, which will further our strength to be better everyday of or journey, take this warm feeling within our hearts, which is God’s love for us and share it with everybody/everything that may cross our paths, which will help everybody within this Society walk their paths of their journey of life in peace.

” Lent is time to cleanse, to be free and be who you truly are, so we all can be free with love pouring over each of us as we walk our journeys in peace”

” Lent to some may be just another day, only because they don’t let themselves be free and feel the love of God within us”

The Bucket List……

This was a movie with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson and a very excellent movie at that, I would have to say these two are the best actors of my lifetime, they both have been in quite a lot of movies and this was the first I have seen them acting together. This movie is basically about two Gentleman who have cancer and one of them has a list of items to live out, before the cancer takes their life.

The Majority of us don’t even make out this Bucket list, or any list for that matter, we may plan things to do when we take vacation from our jobs, or maybe some day trips on the weekends, but a Bucket list? We may chat with others and say add that to my Bucket list, but why say it if we really don’t have the list? Maybe we want to portray to others that we really have this list and cross things off all the time, this only becomes another way for each of us, to simply portray a fake self to those around, instead of truly being who you are, it also is a way for each of us to put ourselves above each other, as all we do is compete on who has the best items on the list.

There is much more to life than writing things down on a list, if you do write things down on a list and live for doing them so you can cross them off, then everything else in life will pass you by, your focus will be on the list, instead of what is going on around you or even worse, you simply can’t see the true beauty of life as you walk your path of your journey through life.

To keep a Bucket list for some is a waste of time, cause only a few will be financially set enough to actually complete that Bucket list. It is one thing to write out a list of things to achieve, it is also another thing to actually have the money to achieve those things? The other good point of the Bucket list is, what happens when you don’t cross off everything on your list? This will lead us to feelings of inadequate, which will make our Society struggle even more than it does now, with low self esteem, depression ect…

When a Bucket list is looked at as being a motivator, I am all in. When just written and forgotten, then this list is just a list. with no promise and incentive to walk your path along your journey of life, while we enjoy all the true beauty that is around us and while we let our true selves shine brighter than all the stars in the sky.

Bucket list the movie is nothing but fantasy, it is still a great movie as Jack and Morgan played greats parts together, but I think we all should enjoy and live our lives, see the beauty of what is around you, instead of trying to live up to a list and becoming depressed, because you simply didn’t achieve everything on your list.

” Bucket list is a list we make of things we want to do in our lives, but achieving these items takes a bit more  time and money”

” We all walk a path along a journey of life, just simply look around you from time to time, so you can see the true beauty that is all around you”
