Remember Who You Are

Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth. Mahatma Gandhi.

In these upside down, uncertain times, when so much is in question, it’s not hard to lose your self if you’re not careful.

Holding on to the truth, even when it goes against society’s prevailing beliefs and opinions, it takes strength of character and a rock solid belief in who you are and what you stand for.

But hey, who said life was going to be easy?

It is more important than ever to remember who you are.

I hope to see you back here soon. As always, thank you for reading me.

Put Something New Into The Mix

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten. Henry Ford.

In the main,  much of who we are and what we are all about is the result of our past thoughts, experiences and subsequent actions.

Many are are OK with that, but in today’s changing, challenging world, others not so much.

Sometimes we stay in situation, even if we don’t like it, just because it’s comfortable… you know, the proverbial comfort zone.

It is what is, we say to ourselves… until, for whatever reason, it isn’t.

At some point in our lives some experience a deep-seated hunger to keep on exploring, doing something different and more meaningful.

Taking a new direction means changing your perspective, looking at everything in a new and different way… starting with the decision to stop looking back, picture a  brighter future and then, putting something new into the mix.

Are you up for it?_________________________________________________

Keep On Skipping…

Life can only be understood backwards but it must lived forwards. Soren Kierkegaard.

As much as we may wish, there are no short cuts in life.

To live fully is to go with the flow, always looking forward.

Willing to live in the present, to accept and adapt to constant change.

Stay interesting. Stay interested. Stay relevant.

I look forward to seeing you here again soon.

As always, thank you for reading me

Weigh Your Choices Carefully

“Some people see things as they are and ask ‘Why’?. I dream things that never were and say ‘Why not?’ George Bernard Shaw.

Some choices are more difficult to make than others. It’s always the most important ones that are the hardest.

The most fundamental one is how you view life. Everything flows from there.

Our society is entering a trying time. Buffeted by a steady stream of threatening, pressing issues, it is easier to think that the good times of the past 40-50 years are fast fading from view, or you can think of life as a wonderful, magical ride, albeit with with many bumps and unexpected sharp curves but well worth the ticket – and devote your time and energy to what you know really matters and holds meaning for you.

Speaking for my myself, as far as I know, we only make the trip once; no one has reported back to the contrary.

It’s your call.

Weigh your choices carefully.

Dancing In The Rain

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass … It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
~
Anonymous, more recently attributed to Vivian Greene.

There is no way to completely eliminate uncertainty in our day to day existence. After all, life does not stand still, it’s up to us to determine how we will respond to life’s challenges, disruptions, storms.

Sure, there are a lot of issues that must be addressed, but as ominous as the sky may look at times, it’s not falling in. There are many people just like you, never giving up, doing what they believe is the right thing, moving ahead, trying to make a difference.

Life is about learning to live with, even embrace the inevitable storms, the rainy days of life. To dance between the light and darkness, between happiness and unhappiness, between the raindrops, though it can require courage, resilience, positivity and compassion.

Most importantly, remember who you are and what you stand for.
