Quality of life along this journey

” Since from you shall come a Ruler, who is to Shepard my people Israel”.

Mt 2;6b

We all get so wrapped up in our Professional lives, that we forget to simply take some ” ME” time as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we grow up and become a productive member in this Society, we become all about our jobs, we become about making money so we can survive in this society to the point, we then become lost from all the true beauty all around us. Sometimes we don’t realize of what we are doing til it is too late, then when we finally wake up to our own realities, we get depressed of the fact that so much has passed us by and we haven’t even taken the time to enjoy any of it.

Now I totally get the fact that we need to work and build up our nest eggs, but what good is that nest egg, if we don’t take the ” ME” time to enjoy it? I get the fact that we find a Company to work in and are happy where we are, so we then work as much and often as we can, to earn all that we can, all while putting aside that “ME” time for later, but sometimes that later comes too us too late, then we look back at what we missed, of which we become depressed when we look back. There are also these life events that come to us with some being, small and mild while others taking control of us. We then bury our selves in our work of our jobs, to try to move forward without feeling the pain from these events? We then become lost within ourselves without taking any kind of “ME” time at all.

We all need this all important ” ME” time, from time to time. This is how we recharge ourselves, this is how we get out and explore all the true beauty around us, while we let this beauty heal us from our troubles, heal us from the stress of our work, so we than can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life. Sometimes this ” ME” time simply consists of, taking to Mother Nature with some camping and hiking, even if it is just you and Mother Nature, just getting out there and healing yourself from the daily grind. Sometimes it is finding a hobby like The sport of Bowling, something you grow to love and excel in, bowling in a league or two, then showing what you can do in a tournament on the weekends. When these activities are not there and we are lost within the clouds of our judgments, from the daily grind of our jobs, we then feel incomplete as a person, while all else passes us by.

I get the fact that we need some money to enjoy the ” ME” times, yes it is okay too build up the nest eggs, but it is also important to learn to balance your time between the work and the ” ME” time, without getting lost within the corporate world. The corporate world is fine, but sometimes we let it dictate where we are going, instead of us dictating where we want to go. Within this society we walk today and the way the corporate world changes daily, we then fear that the change will leave us on the outside looking in, which we then do whatever within our jobs, to what we think as becoming valuable to the company we work, but in reality these companies really, could care less of who we are, especially if we are not producing for them, this is when we get lost within and totally forget that all important “ME” time.

We all need to recharge and clear the cob webs from our minds from time to time, find an activity that helps us do just that, so we can focus on ourselves, as we heal ourselves from the daily grind, heal ourselves from the pains that come to hurt us throughout this journey, when we don’t take the time to recharge, then we lose focus on where we are going and more importantly, where we want to go moving forward. This journey through life really isn’t that hard when we do it correctly, but that is the problem……….. we get lost within the clouds of our judgments so much that, we let everything else dictate where we are going, instead of we ourselves dictating where we want to go.

” Good quality of life is we ourselves taking the proper ” ME” time to recharge and refocus”

” The corporate world will consume us if we let it, we just have to find the right balance between “ME” time and work time”

” A nest egg is good for the latter of the journey, as long as we don’t let the latter pass us by without enjoying it”

” We all need to recharge and clear our heads from time to time, so we can move forward better and stronger”

When Jesus came to us and walked his journey, he never got caught up in all the hatred, he never had bad words of who was around him, when others around him took to this practices, all he did was to pray as he showed nothing but love for them and all else around them. Jesus walked among us with just the clothes on his back, as he spread his fathers words and love to us all, he never spoke Ill of those who didn’t believe, he only kept spreading the love of God, that is within us all.

Another summer is near to a close, with the season of fall right around the corner. With that……… Another school year is about to open as the children go back to school. Now for some some children this brings a lot of anxiety as they dread walking within the corridors of their school. Schools can be a very happy place for some, as for others it can a very scary place, that brings much pain and tears. Children of all ages can be very cruel to each other, especially when they try hard just to fit in themselves. Peer Pressure is a very powerful force that will engulf and control all those within it’s grasp, it will also force you into being someone you really are not, all while you create a “VICTIM”, as you Bully them in front of those you so want to try to fit into with. When you become a Bully yourself, now you become addicted to the power and will stop at nothing to continue this behavior, so you can seem at first glance to ones you are trying to impress, as a very powerful person and they need you within their Cliche. A Bully is nothing but a Coward that has pain deep within themselves, of which they are to scared to face themselves, a Bully is also a person like those in which they Bully, There is no one that is more powerful than anyone, as we all walk a path, here along this journey through life.

We have all been a Victim of being bullied at some point in our lives, we all know the pain and suffering that comes with being bullied, then why do we all do nothing of this behavior? Why are we all so caught up in the ugliness, without seeing the true beauty around us? Why do we let ourselves be so consumed with trying to achieve the power over all? What really does having all the power bring? When our children do things wrong and are caught Bullying those around them, then why do we always say, ” he/she is a good person and will never do that”? These are all legit questions for each of us and questions that we as a Society need to really look deeply into. We as a Society are responsible for all the Bullies out there and we as a Society can end all the Bulling now. Our words and our actions have created all these Bullies, as well as all the ugliness around us, the time is now to end all this crap, the time is now to seriously change our words and what we say, as well as thinking deeply of our words, before we take the action of our words.

Being a Bully is a sickness and we as a Society have the Antidote to end this sickness. Each and every one of us needs to stand up against all Bullies no matter of who they are, so they can cower away like the true Coward they are. Then we all need to truly change our ways, change the words we say and really Change, the way we take action of our words, let’s show more Empathy of each other, so the love of God within us, can spread like wildfire among us. When Jesus came and walked his path among us, he showed us just how to walk peacefully, while we have empathy of each other, he showed us that the love of God is within us, we just have to truly feel it, so we than can spread it among each other, he never showed us how to hate, as this is on us as a Society, because we have lost all faith and have given up, so we then take to being consumed in the ugliness, just so we can hide within ourselves, instead of being who we  truly are. This journey is not really that hard, it is we as a Society that have made it hard, the time is now to walk our paths correctly as Jesus showed us, so we all can walk our paths peacefully and within happiness, throughout this journey of life.

 

” It is much harder learning to hate, then letting the kindness and the love already within us just flow naturally from us”

” The time is now to end all Bullies and it will take each of us within this broken Society”

” The power of a Bully requires the fear from a Victim, with less Victims, there will be less Bullies”

” Being a Bully is a Sickness and each of us within this Society, has the Antidote to this sickness”

 

Inspiration is in front of you………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

There is Inspiration everywhere around you, it could be staring you in the face right now, you just have to be able to look deeply into what you see and let the inspiration do what it is suppose to do, instead of you trying to force the inspiration when it is really not there.

A true Creative Writer let’s the inspiration inspire him, he let’s the inspiration create the words as he types onto the keyboard, a true Creative Writer will never look at the words of others and twist them, to make them seem as if he wrote them. The true Creative Writer when the mind is a blank, would rather leave the page blank, to come back another day, when the mind creates the words for which he wants to write, when the Inspiration comes and the fingers dance across the keyboard.

In today’s world of writing and those within the World of Journalism now, have totally let the power of greed control their fingers on the keyboard. Simply look no further than all the publications of the Media today, they will write anything in order to catch and reel in their Reader’s, plus to keep alive all the drama and keep going of their agendas. It is all about the power of greed, instead of letting the inspiration inspire them, just so they can try to move forward while they try to live within an exotic lifestyle.

Now those of us that do try to write while letting the inspiration inspire us, struggle to actually get paid for our craft, simply because of the ones that think and say they are a writer? They have stolen all the real jobs out there, with their lies and manipulation of their so called words. Me………. I would rather keep writing as I am and simply hold onto the fact that, maybe one day I will get the ” Reward” of actually being paid for my craft, while I keep letting my inspiration inspire me. Simply because I know all my words are real and there is nothing fake to the words that I write.

Also……… A true Writer when he looks at something, knows how to just let his mind wander with the thoughts, write down those thoughts, to later take those thoughts and turn them into a great writing article, that will captivate his reading Audience, so they will hang on his every word. You notice that there are some Author’s out there, that can use their words to do just that, someone like a Stephen King knows just how to captivate and grab their Audience, so they keep flipping the pages of their craft and struggle to put the book down without finishing it from cover to cover. Now some may not like the Horror he writes, but when you look past that part, he is a great writer, with a very vivid imagination, that knows just how to cast out, snag and reel in his Audience, so they become captivated and not wanting to put the book down, til they have read the entire book.

Writing is a craft and a true Writer knows how to use his craft to captivate an Audience, without trying to spread drama throughout a Society. a true writer don’t write words on a page, just to fill the page, a true Writer will sort out the thoughts in his head, then let the inspiration of the thoughts inspire him, so his fingers can dance across the keyboard with rhythm, just like a great dancer feels the rhythm of the music and glides across the dance floor. I like to go out and take many pictures of different landscapes, now some landscapes may not lead to an inspiration, or maybe lead to the wrong kind of inspiration, but I then download the camera full of pictures onto the computer and then let inspiration inspire my thoughts into the words I write, so I can then captivate my Audience who read my writings. I let the pictures start my thought process, which then leads to sorting out the thoughts and my fingers dancing across the keyboard. Yes sometimes I stare at a picture and there is nothing? When that happens, I simply shut down the computer and walk away, this is what they call writer’s block, when this happens, I would rather walk away from the keyboard, instead of writing something just to fill a page, because now your not using your craft to the fullest and this is when you write the wrong words, which then loses your Audience instead of captivating them.

 

” Writing is an art form that when used correctly, the inspiration will inspire all that read the words”

” A true Writer will never twist around other words just to fill a page, he will always let the inspiration of his thoughts inspire him so he can create the right words to fill a page that captivates his Audience”

” Journalism of today has changed drastically, as too many want to write just for the money, instead of writing to make himself and his Audience feel great inside”

” Inspiration is right in front of you, first you have to look deeply into the inspiration, to let it truly inspire you”

 

Re-focus on what is out of focus……….

Forest Flowers                    ” To focus on what is in front of you, puts other things out of focus when we don’t pay attention”

With this picture and the flowers in the foreground, you can clearly see where the focus is, but to focus on whats in front, puts the background out of focus and hard to see what is back there. To those who take professional pictures, it takes great patience to sit and wait for the right moment and get the best shot, but when they focus on their subject of interest, it puts all else out of focus.

Just like with picture taking, it also takes great patience for us throughout Mankind, to sit and wait then re-focus on whats important, so we can walk our paths of our journey of life, to be better and stronger moving forward. We all get caught up in the drama within this Society, then we have our issues brought on by different life events, with these events they come to us when we least expect it and usually from a source that is out of our control. these events will bring many issues to us as well as much pain and with this pain, we will hurt in many ways. This hurt will force us to become out of focus with everything we do, then we try to rid ourselves of the hurt to re-gain focus and we end up focusing on all the wrong things.

When we become out of focus along our paths of our journey, we try very hard to re-gain focus and a lot of times we over focus, which we then without realizing it, become something very different, from who we truly are. This journey through life is not that hard when everything simply falls into place, we then have great focus on everything around and see clearly all that is front of us, it is when the issues of our life come to us, that we then simply walk our paths out of focus and just wander aimlessly throughout this journey of life.

Jesus Christ came to us and walked his journey with a purpose, this purpose was to show and teach us just how to walk this journey, so we to can find the path of righteousness and we can also have purpose throughout our lives. When we have and find our purpose, then we can walk our paths of this journey with great focus on everything around us. It is when all the issues of these events come to us and control us, when we become out of focus and then simply wander aimlessly throughout this journey.

Life events happen to us either from our own ways, or from another that think nothing but bringing harm to us, most of the time these events happen when are at a young age, which we don’t know the difference between something of good, or something of bad. Either way they still bring us great pain and suffering, but we have a hard time in doing is, quite simply forgiving ourselves, even when it wasn’t truly our fault of the event that has happened. Walking our paths through this journey of life, is far from just a walk in the park, but when we stay in focus and truly forgive ourselves, yes we can find this same path of righteousness, that Jesus showed and taught us to walk. then we all can be better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

” true focus is more than just aiming a camera for the right picture, true focus helps us all throughout Mankind walk our journeys peacefully”

” To focus on all things equally, we first have to forgive ourselves so all the hurt from within will disappear, leaving us to be better and stronger along this journey of life”

Throw the curve ball………

Just as in Baseball when the Pitcher throws a curve ball to get the Batter to swing and miss, Life also throws a curve ball at us from time to time. This curve ball comes to us at every cross road we come to at our paths of our journey of life.

When we come to these cross roads and we have these life events happening to us, we become clouded in our judgements and can’t see the movement of the ball as it gets closer to us, we become out of focus and can’t seem to regain it, so we can swing and make contact with the ball, when the life events are in control then we are in control and can see every rotation of the curve ball.

In the game of Baseball when a player is in a slump, usually means there is something wrong with his approach to the game, or the way he is swinging at the baseball, then the player tries to do too much in order to get out of the slump, than all he is really doing is hurting his game more so, because he is not focusing on the things he needs to focus on, like watching and seeing the rotation of the curve ball, that is about to get into range for a good swing and good contact on the ball, so he can give his team a chance to win the game.

Life for all of us as we walk our paths of our journey, is kind of similar to a Ball Player, only that to a ball player it is a game, to us it is reality and who we become along our journey through life. The concept is similar, just that one has a huge effect on us as a person. These life events are what gets us out of focus, so when the curve ball of life comes to us, we can’t see the spin or the rotation of the ball as it approaches us, which makes us swing and miss all the time.

With these life events and us not handling them correctly, makes for very rough paths along our journey of life. These events will always be there, it is us that have to deal with them properly, when we do deal with them properly, not only will our paths along our journey be smoother, but we will always see the spin and the rotation of the curve ball, to which we will always swing and hit the curve ball, out of this park called life.

” A curve ball before it reaches the plate, will have a spin and a rotation to it, you have to focus on the ball in order to hit the ball for a great length”

” Life’s curve ball is a bit different, but the concept of to focus on whats in front of you, is very much the same, as we all walk this journey through life”
