365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 37

For the first time in a long time all that really needs to be said is, life is good. I’m not wanting for anything, my cats are healthy, my friends are abundant, and my family is somewhat sane. I find it interesting how when Life is not going the way that we won’t we are the first to complain, maybe, maybe dwell on it, but when life is going well we seem to be in the flow shall I say, and forget to wake knowledge the fact that it is actually going OK. That we have come along way, either with in an aspect of our lives over within ourselves. It then becomes selfish to take time for ourselves or at least we feel that way, I don’t have time to do this I need to do XYZ, I feel guilty doing this because I should be making time for ABC, And so on, I think you know what I mean. It is OK to sit in a moment and thank it for being. To …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 34

I feel like I conquer the world today which is an awesome feeling, at the same time I know I have to rest tomorrow because I can definitely feel the consequences of conquering the world today. I could hate or extremely dislike and the fact about my life which is whenever I have a fun active day I need a day of rest after it or I could embrace this fact And know that yes because of my disability I need to take things slower, I need to make alternative plans, I need to know exactly how much my body can handle and how far I can push it. Instead of feeling bad about the days that I am missing I can take that time to reflect, and reconnect with myself. A built-in time to work on my mental health. The situation is only as bad as the way you look at it in. The ability to see some kind of good in a most anything is a skill that many of us were gone …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 33

I was at my tattoo parlour for consultation today when I saw this. It just spoke to me on every level so I figure I have to share when that happens. What I find interesting, is I grew up in a Buddhist inspired household and have always believed in those principles, I am not here to convert anybody, but what I find interesting is that after all this time and starting the journey of finding my true self and who I really am I end up back at my roots. When I thought that through finding myself I would move away from who are used to be to become who I should be. Don’t let go of your roots completely, you may stray, leave them for a while but I guess what they say is true what will be will be.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 32

Realizing that everyone has a story and a purpose it’s something that not all people do. I have found this a lot lately, especially since I have started exploring living in the moment more. Sometimes it’s all people can do to talk to you or interact with you being able to understand that and not take it personally is in education in and of itself. When you realize you have a purpose and what the purpose is at least in my experience there is no stopping you. Your true purpose will drive you to things that you never thought you would do and it will put you on the path you need to be so don’t annoyed when it comes knocking embraced it and thank your lucky stars that you are one of the people who gets to experience what it is to be their true self. Many people don’t get this experience and if and when they do they don’t with us anymore to talk about their findings. You will end up on the …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 31

I think people underestimate the power of the mind and attitude. They say you can’t be happy forever or are you happy, do you acknowledge your feelings? I don’t see or feel the need to analyze to the point of making myself sick about it anymore. If I want to be happy forever and never have another sad day I can do that. In my not be healthy. It may not be recommended. But it is doable. Negative people can still be happy people just as positive people can have a sad day I think finding the balance between the two for yourself is where the sweet spot lies. Do you want to, be¬†happy, or not, it’s your party so cry if you want to. But realize that you are in control of your feelings and how your feelings make you feel so feel all the feelings but settle on the one that makes you the most comfortable in that moment. The next moment may be completely different and bring something completely new acknowledging keep …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 30

And the stress of the world starts to get to you and it seems like you can’t catch a break, Stop. Breathe. Think. Does this really matter? Am I living my purpose? Or my actions getting me to where I want to be? Does this thing in someway give me joy? I find myself asking these questions a lot lately and since I have started I have found out a lot about myself. For one I absolutely hate conflict. It brings out the worst in me. Two, I take things too seriously, or, should I say I used to take things too seriously. Are used to care what people think and I do to a certain extent now but not as much and it allows me to be less stressed which brings me to number three, I hate stress. Yet I have become so used to the feeling, to not have in my life feels weird. Good. But, so weird. True test I find, is the question does this bring me joy. If I can’t …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 29

Although I could’ve blogged about any number of things today good and not so good. And I know now I get to choose what I put out into the world so instead, I’m going to talk a little bit about one of the things I absolutely love -subtlety. I love to watch how the world seems to know what each person needs from it at a given time if you just pay attention. (All image credit attributed to Lessons Learned In Life) I am going through Some major life changes lately and seeing is this a quote from lessons learned in life which says: “there comes a day when turning the page is the best decision for you because you realize there is much more to the book then the page we’re stuck on” this could not be more true for me right now. I think most people can take something from this weather they find themselves facing adversity or having to deal with life’s stresses. I think taking the time to notice life’s subtleties …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 28

As I said here in my new armchair and contemplate the last day and a half I can say with all certainty I feel like I have got a handle on life. This would be hard for me to say as little as four months ago when I didn’t know if or where I would be living. Not to say that I don’t have issues right now, I just found out that I stupidly got involved in a scam and hopefully this site doesn’t go down because of it. That said you never know. I feel like more detail is needed here so here goes, my domain name in other words www.livingmycplife.com gets renewed every five years or so and a company contacted me telling me it was about time to renew, which it is so I didn’t think twice about it although I thought it was strange, went to their website, they had no customer support. Yet I still gave them my money. Not the brightest idea I have ever had. That is not …
