Even a Background has it’s Background

 

Just as this picture has a beautiful background full of tree’s and mountains, a  society with all its occupants has it’s background as well. There are so many backgrounds it can be very overwhelming to comprehend, not just we the people of a society have the background to live with, but everything around us has their backgrounds to live with as well, the background is part of our past whether we like it or not?

Now some backgrounds may come with much pain and hurt and some may be as smooth as silk? But the background is a background and they do not have to dictate how we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes things happen in our past whether with our own actions or the actions of another towards us, then as we try to move forward, that makes our past become our background, whether we accept it or not? When we do not accept it and do not fix what we need to fix, now our futures become cluttered with self-doubt, lack of faith in ourselves with no hope, as we try to walk our paths. You can never erase any past no matter what, as the past is part of our background and will never go away. Now if you try to wipe out a past without addressing the background, then you will have many trying to move forward with a lot of unnecessary pain and hurt, not too mention trying to move forward not being true of who you are.

We all have a past that becomes our background with many issues and stuff we may not be proud of, but if we never address these issues and fix what we need to fix, now we have a society with many backgrounds that the pain and hurt becomes so great, we will do anything to rid ourselves from the pain, even if we then become someone for who we are not. There are a lot of good backgrounds out there, but yet there are many backgrounds that none of us can ever be proud of, with that said……… There is no background that can not be fixed, so we then can move forward better and stronger.

Throughout this society of backgrounds and pasts, we will never hold ourselves accountable whether the background was from our own actions or the actions of another, so instead, we then hide very deeply within a background that we are ashamed of, then let the shame of it all, take complete control of ourselves moving forward, when we are shamed into going into hiding, not only do we become fake on the outside, we also become fake on the inside, which then has us losing the feeling of our true emotions, to keep further pain and hurt from coming to us.

To some point, we all within this society have been shamed at one time or another, we all have at least one thing in our pasts that keep us hiding our background from each other, while we let the shame control of who we truly are. Shame is very like Denial and they both go hand and hand, they both will have you become part of a world that is not real, a world that you yourself try to make it as real as you can only to escape all the pain and hurt from the real reality. We become so lost along our paths that we never truly fix what we need, so we can truly move forward in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

What is truly in the background you ask? There are many different backgrounds within this society and we all have very different backgrounds from each other which makes us all unique to each other. Some backgrounds are not all good with much happiness, most backgrounds come with great pain and hurt, which then has us hiding in plain sight, just to try to escape all the pain and hurt, then through all the pain and hurt we then suffer from the shame and denial of these backgrounds, without trying to fix what we need to move forward in peace, so we then move forward with how we think is the best way, which is the burying of our true feelings and emotions, becoming someone we truly are not, as we then portray ourselves as okay, when in reality we are not.

The many facets of a background may come in many ways and within a society of many, now there are many backgrounds all around, but what we tend to overlook is, a background can be adjusted with the right fix, just that we have to want the fix, so we then can move forward along our paths, throughout this journey of life to be better and stronger with each step we take.

 

” A background is a past and you just can not erase a past to make the background better”

 

” Even Natures background isn’t all Roses, it to will come with some tragic events as well”

 

” We all have our backgrounds and we all have our pasts, they do not have to dictate how we walk through this journey of life”

 

 

The Obstacles can get overwhelming

 

No matter what path along this journey of life you take, the obstacles can be quite overwhelming but you have to focus on what is in front of you, take each stride one step at a time and when you make sure of your footing and step over with confidence, the path will become a lot easier, no matter of how it may look from afar.

Right now within this society and with all the chaos and ugliness, it is very easy to become troubled with the paths becoming daunting and seem very rough to travel, Then you add in the fact that our so-called leaders are so screwed up and can not work together for the better of us all, makes for a lot of us not seeing the light along the paths we walk. There are two Political parties with one not much better than the other, but we have one party that is so far to the left, that they have become the party of Denial while losing all sight of true reality.

The Democratic party is the party of Denial, they attack anything they can to make themselves seem more powerful than they really are. They attack a seated President simply because he is not their guy? They have lost sight of all Respect for anything and anybody around them, not too mention the fact that they have zero accountability for themselves let alone others around them if the President sneezed they would argue that he did it wrong, plus they wouldn’t even say ” God Bless You”, showing that they have truly lost sight of everything around them. But even through all this crap, President Trump keeps moving forward and not just making America great, but making all the people better and stronger as they move forward, leaving all the Democrats in the rearview mirror, as they keep trying to stop all the production that is getting done.

After the last big election, there are a few that have been voted into office, well……. All I can say is, they had their time and it is time to move on from this. I get the fact that they got voted in to replace a long-standing candidate that has done nothing but become dead weight, time to move on from this mistake, vote better and smarter, to give our great President the help he needs to further make this country better and stronger moving forward.

Throughout this world of political correctness, we have become weaker as a society, plus the fact that we have become too much of ” all about me”, through all this crap we have lost touch with the one thing that is truly important to us and that is the fact that we have the true feeling of the empathy we all have deep within our souls. Without true empathy which is the feeling within us to actually feel for those around us, so if we do not have that then we will never move forward with strength, as we will also never have any care of what happens to those around us. Now without empathy, the love within us becomes lost also as they both come together, so instead, we use the word love in the wrong context like, ” I love that car” or ” I love this book”? So now we care for more inanimate objects instead of each other as Jesus showed us when he came to us and walked his path of this journey with us.

Now I get the fact that we all need to work our jobs so we can afford to survive and pay our debt, but somewhere along this path we all have become more disconnected from each other, plus we all have let the clouds of our judgments becoming so thick, we can not see where we are going, which makes it a lot harder to see where all the obstacles are, as we now are tripping over our own feet and not truly walking our paths with confidence throughout this journey of life.

 

” The paths will not always be paved and yes we will have to get over the obstacles throughout this journey of life”

 

” There are two political parties that today are to busy arguing with each other instead of actually working making all our lives better and stronger”

 

” Political correctness has made us all weak as we fear too much of what we say anymore”

 

” Love and empathy go together as they are both deep within our hearts and souls”

 

 

 

 

The Patriot way……I am a Patriot

” They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, they prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh  ”

Mt 2: 10 11

 

To all the fans of the New England Patriots, the Eagle has landed. Now this season compared to all the other seasons of the last twenty years was a very interesting season, to say the least. The biggest question to this team going into what is going to be a very interesting offseason is, should Tom Brady retire or leave what has become his home for another team and not just another team, but a team that has much more uncertainty then this team of the 2019 Patriots. Tom’s legacy is the Patriots and to go to another team, could very much damage that legacy moving forward. Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks who think they know the game better than Tom or even Bill, are going to say whatever they may about Tom and this team, they will even argue that Tom has lost the zip on his throwing of the football, but from what I saw after yesterdays game, Tom can still zip that ball with authority and into tight spaces where only his receivers can get it. The Receivers are whats to be really looked at seriously, the only one he has and he trusts is Edleman and when the opponent knows this and takes Jules out of the game, you now have a Patriot offense that becomes very predictable and easy to zone in on. Now yes Tom has made many no-name Receivers into a household name within the NFL in the past, so one will argue that he can not and should retire? If you really look at the game within the game as Tom and Bill do every day, the biggest thing with turning a nobody Receiver into a star is, if you do not trust the one that is the Receiver to do his job then you really can not be as effective as you were in the past. Trust no matter what sport you are playing, in conjunction with having guys on the team that can and will do their job, is the biggest reason why the Patriots have six Championships and some franchises struggling to even make the playoffs.

Now there will be a lot of your drama queen sports media types and your Monday Quarterback types that will say the Dynasty is over? On the contrary, as long as you have Tom Brady and Bill Bellichek, the Dynasty continues just with a much different supporting cast around those two. Tom has made New England his home and Robert Kraft looks at Tom as his adopted son, I find it very hard to see Tom leaving this organization he has worked so hard to help build. It is kind of like we as Individuals being born into a family, we grow within this family and help build a strong bond and a foundation, so to just up and leave that really isn’t that easy. True there will be struggles as the good times never last, but when the bad times come it is very easy to just walk away, but if you want to be better and stronger moving forward, you have to fight through the bad times, fight through the struggles, which not only makes you better and stronger but also makes your team better and stronger moving forward. Then there is the issue of Josh McDaniels, this guy is a great Offensive Coordinator and my opinion of this is when you are great at something you keep doing what you are great at as you receive the Respect of your Peers, Josh left for the Broncos and became a Head Coach and that didn’t work out too good, I say he stays here with Tom and Bill to help build this team with some very different supporting cast members and who knows? Bill, as well as Tom, will retire someday, then you can take the respect you earned and excel as the next coach of the New England Patriots.

Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks will say that football is a game and very different then this journey through life, I say very different as the game of football as well as other team sports only help you grow stronger as you walk your path through this journey. When you are an individual on a team this will make the game very hard for you, just as when you are an Individual walking this journey with no one around you, makes for a very difficult journey with many struggles. Just look at the walls within Washington DC with our so-called leaders, you have two teams that are supposed to be working together for the good of the people in the Democrats and the Republicans, but instead, right now you have a bunch of Individuals who are doing nothing but argue with each other and not doing their jobs. So true you can say two very different ideologies, but in reality, they are very much the same and when you have common sense, you can clearly see just how similar they are. Just as you have a team coming together showing trust of each other and doing their jobs to win a Championship and when you have a Government coming together through trust and unity, now you can have a society coming together in unity instead of being divided with much ugliness and hatred at every turn. Team sports and the journey of life are so similar, but if you never look deeply at what you see, then maybe you should look in the mirror as maybe you have become part of the problem, instead of being part of the solution for each one of us to become better and stronger, as we all walk a path through this journey of life.

 

” The Patriot way maybe for a team in the NFL, but to be a Patriot of a country you have to do it similar as all the other Patriots by making it the countries way”

 

” I know we all have our own opinions but we also all have our own Butt holes as well”

 

” Armchair Quarterbacks and the sports media all have one thing in common,  they both like to create their own drama and bring it to all of us, making them all Drama Queens”

 

 

Death we can not avoid

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Death is one of those facts of life that will affect us all no matter where we are along our paths of this journey, whether death comes to ourselves personally, a loved one or something around us, death will change you in more ways than you really know.  Death is something that is permanent, you can not get it back as now the soul-deep within you, will leave you cold and lifeless. Death affects everything around us also, the plant life is just as alive and vibrant as we are, as they will face the cold dark days of death. Animal life no matter the species as alive as they are will face the dark cold days of the death, whether we accept death or not, it will bring us into the dark cold days of lifelessness and the time when this journey through life has come to an end.

Sometimes death will come along sooner than later for whatever reason? There are many diseases that may overcome us like the big one known as Cancer, then there are things known as natural disasters that will bring a tragic end to the journey also, but the biggest thing that I may never wrap my head around is, why the hell do we hurt each other whether physical or mentally and sometimes to the point of, making us either someone for who we truly are not or even worse………… we leave another in our wake with their cold, dark, lifeless bodies, lying there in a motionless state.

Within this fast-paced society of today, we are so busy getting busy, that we never take the time to get busy exploring and actually live our lives along the path that we have chosen. There is so much to our paths that we never truly enjoy it, which then leads us to a journey that really hasn’t been that well-traveled.  Some may never even step outside their comfort zone and really get busy exploring what is around us, so we can be at peace and learn all that we can, instead of being stuck in one place just getting busy being busy.

We can either get busy exploring and truly being in touch with our true feelings, or we can get busy dying and never being in touch with anything, there is a whole lot more to this journey through life, that if we do not get busy doing anything, then this journey will never become a journey as Jesus Christ showed us while he had walked this journey here with us and taught us that, through love along this journey then we can actually stop and pause to look at a journey traveled correctly. We only walk one path through this journey, so why not do it correctly, instead of stepping on another man’s shine and messing it up, as we then walk our paths with a purpose, while we are surrounded by the peace and serenity, of a journey well-traveled.

 

” Get busy living or get busy dying the choice is ours to make throughout this journey of life”

 

” Never step on another’s shine as that shine you may have scuffed up just might have been a great explorer of this journey”
