365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 169

I reached a point in life where apparently I can have more fun than I ever before. Taking things seriously and learning to not take things so seriously. I was asked for a rally today (a typo that should have been Talley) so I made pom-poms (Yes you read that right) and I have so much fun with it even though the person who I did it before I think was in such a serious mood they could not realize the fun in it. I had fun though and I don’t really care. you need to learn to laugh at yourself before you can take any of the things that really matter in life seriously.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 137

It’s no secret I had half a bad day today. What I am learning is, often the bad and doesn’t last as long as you think it well. If you’re able to get through the bad times in whatever way you see fit-The good times will come and they will come quickly. The other thing I found is The sooner you can flip a switch or find happiness again easier it will be to forget about the past. Basically I’m learning not to dwell on things that happen but instead embrace them for what they are. One moment.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 105

Today wasn’t necessarily a good day knew there was it a horrible day. It’s my birthday knows that. It was a very emotional day, I think that’s the best way to put it. I’ve always disliked my birthday, this is a fact. I am always depressed and my birthday and I can’t figure out why. It has been many years since I have had a birthday that I can say went well. Today though I can say that I saw my grandma and my brother I got to have lunch with my family and my mom came over when I forgot my glasses for a bit. I even found a cat grooming glove online which I promptly ordered. I hope this doesn’t set the tone for the rest of the year in fact I know it won’t the good thing about days hours minutes and moments is that they are just that there’s always another one and they continue so you’re never stuck in a moment it’s just a matter of rewriting the next one.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 35

I bet you thought I almost forgot about you, surprise. I didn’t. I wanted to take a minute to talk about the power of people who are not only nice but who you can tell enjoy what they are doing. For those of you who don’t know, the way my disability has progressed I am in need of people to come in from time to time. They help me reach thing they clean that kind of thing. I’m not as flexible as I used to be and I can’t stand for very long time. Cleaning is also a somewhat dangerous task for me wet floors and Mindy do not mix. All that said, you would think that people who get into the field of helping others would want to do so. But, I have met many a person who treat people like just another job they have to do.I don’t like that, I don’t live like that, I will never be like that. But that’s for another day. Today I had a new girl come …

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.

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 …
