365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 183

I’ve had enough of trying to be . of proving yourself,To yourself or another. This is something people View as necessary but shouldn’t become a habit. I can see why a person would be tested to ensure their knowledge I have a certain topic area or field, but the term prove yourself which we throw out in every day conversation seems to carry unnecessary weight and stressed for both parties. If I, or indeed you, not good enough the way I am, for the things I do and what I bring to the table that’s OK. I don’t have to please everybody I just have to please myself. So when you asked me to prove something to you if I choose to do that there is more to my thought process when doing something to please another. Long story short, you need to put your needs, and your self first before anyone and everyone else. Meaning, often in the real world, you can choose between pleasing others all day and losing yourself or pleasing yourself …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 180

I was trying to figure out what I was going to post today because I’m spent the entire day in bed watching YouTube video. Which is absolutely fine and what I needed to do today in order to re-charge so I’m OK with that. At the same time though, I try to make the post interesting and/or at least something that has a point to it. As I was thinking all I could come up with was: all you need is chocolate. 🍫 It’s true if you think about it, when you’re really strong, or in some kind of mood, you know what I mean we’ve all been there. All you need is chocolate. Or to rephrase, Oh you need is the thing that will give you comfort and ground you in that moment. Whatever it is. It might be a hug, it might be a piece of cake, it might be to snuggle with a pet, it might be a conversation with a good friend. So find your chocolate, don’t ttake advantageof it. Too …

Sometimes changes happen and we feel like it’s the worst thing in the world, or we aren’t sure how we’re going to adjust to it. When it’s upon us though we realize it’s not so bad and actually things work out for the better. Just like with people, don’t be so quick to judge a situation live it first. I have found this is the only way you can truly know whether it’s going to work for you or not. Whether it’s a bad situation or not. Of course, if your gut says not to do something fall away that instinct is invaluable. Never tried to push it away or get rid of it. It’s there for a reason and it knows best. If you try to situation and it just doesn’t work, it just doesn’t work. Don’t get mad at yourself order go above and beyond to fix it because fixing an already broken situation just leads to more broken pieces. I know when to walk away and say you tried your best. On …

365 Days Living In The Moment: Day 171

There’s a point when you know who you are when nothing can knock you off your game. When people try to destabilize you it may work for a minute, or even two, but you eventually realized what you were worrying about doesn’t really matter in the long run. Because, if it did people would care more, you would care more. But instead, you decide, not to prove them wrong, or take a stand, but to just do. Just do, and let the world be. If the experience is meant to happen, it is meant to happen. If your path is going to take you a different route, let it happen – it’s going to happen anyway. Why fight it. There’s no use fighting for her life that is not purely routed in your own purpose. Let it be.

I find myself in this weird moments where although things are going well and it looks like things are only looking up (even then not so great thing will eventually work themselves Out) I am still waiting for the other shoe to drop as it were. It’s as if I can’t believe, or let myself believe, for the most part I am in a decent spot in life. I don’t know if this is because I have had experiences where the decent only last so long or because I’m used to getting the rug pulled out from under me. But it seems like, even though I try so hard to embrace what is in front of me, and I do. In the back of my hand I am still waiting for crap hit the fan. No but I look at it and read this bank I think all of this is because I am not doing what I want to do. I know what my calling use. What I am meant to be doing and …

People say sometimes you don’t don’t appreciate something until it’s gone are almost gone. Are used to believe that was true, then I live some life and now I feel like that statement should be amended. Sometimes you don’t appreciate something until it’s gone and others you just read it and appreciate the Being able to say I know longer have blank in my life anymore. Sometimes it’s a good thing to leave people, situations, and experiences behind; a necessary part of growth and healing. Other times, the feeling feels right. Appreciate the people in your life while they are there because People make them so was present in your life for a time and for a reason, embrace it. Live in the moment. Know that you are loved.

I wish I could say I was more productive today but sometimes it’s not always about being productive in a “Let’s get it done” type of way. Sometimes allowing yourself a moment process or even just having one day a week to yourself or one hourIs productivity. Without that time a person becomes overworked, stress and angry, not to mention a Marriott of other emotions that I won’t get into. Today I met a new friend and chatted with a few old ones. I was also saddened by some changes the movement but I’m not going to focus on that. Why because that is something I cannot change and thinking about it we’re trying to change it will just put me in a negative mood and I only get two days off on the weekend so I’m not going to spend them negatively. Unless absolutely necessary. Life is too short.

We all need people to vent to and people who understand. For me that was people come through friendships I have made with other person to have disabilities. Mind you, it depends on what I want to talk about. But, for the most part if I need to vent about something that is at disability related or that’s something that affects my life on the daily I will choose one of these people. It’s nice to know that many of these people are very open and honest as well and able to give me the time that I and they need to fully understand me in the situation and where I’m coming from. I am not a brief person LOL. I was able to have a conversation/venting session today with one of those people and I am so glad that we got to chat for as long as we did. About all the things we were able to, because many times I feel like people with disabilities are often isolated or they may feel that …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 142

Today was the first day with my new desk set up, and it went great. If this experience has taught me anything it is that you should not be afraid to ask for accommodations that you need or even think you might need. Had I done this sooner I would have had a much easier time with parts of my job and I don’t know that I would have made some of the stupid mistakes that I did. Like not changing the date on a document and things like that. I was sceptical it would make things easier but even within five hours I can tell you that it has and it will. It may be a little early to tell but I think it also increased my productivity and these are all things that are only going to reflect better on me as I progress in my position. Who knew that changing the position of screens not even getting new ones but just changing where the screens physically or would make such a big …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 119

I had a horrible day today. I have no problem saying that. It wasn’t in the way of work, or getting things done, it was more just muscular body pains and just feeling blah. That said, one of my friends, not realizing that I was having a day was talking to me and invited me to a work thing next week. That one moment, changed my day for that moment. I suddenly feel wanted and like I had a purpose and a place again. I should say, please don’t worry about me, I am taking the day off tomorrow and I am going to sleep and just rest my body and my mind and I’m sure I will be back to my old self in the next couple of days. My point is, never underestimate the power of one action it may make someone’s day. Even if you think that it is small and inconsequential to that person in that moment you could be making a huge difference.
