We expect a lot from other people. We sometimes expect others to bring their A game to the table….to be better friends, companions, coworkers, or family members. But are we doing the same? If we’re going to expect these behaviors from other people, we’ve got to first develop them in ourselves.
Where’s there’s creativity, there’s hope. Self expression is like opening the curtains and letting the light shine in. It teaches you who you are, and oxygenates your thoughts. Go create something…anything. Find your medium…and find yourself.
Chill out. Relax. The world is a busy place, and we are so often like ants clambering around trying to catch up and trying to find our place. Why not slow it down a bit? Life shouldn’t have to rush by us. Create a peace so beautiful that the days slow down to catch up with YOU.
Don’t think so much…just get started. I have a habit of overthinking…which leads to a lot of wasted time and a slew of empty projects. I’m workin’ on it. And yeah, I actually had to look up ‘underdo’…it sounds funny, but it works.
We are sort of bombarded these days by celebrity news…magazines and television shows fill our heads with news of who is dating who, who is doing what, and who is going where. Between celebrity gossip and reality TV, it’s easy to get caught up in the web of someone else’s life, and sometimes that can cause us to look down upon or neglect our own. While it’s fun to check it all out sometimes, let’s remember to keep the focus on doing what we can to live our own lives the best way we know how.
How often have you succumbed to that clinging feeling of defeat? To the heavy weight of hopelessness? Ideas unrealized, goals unmet, and shattered plans can be the shepherds that lead us into that field.
But there’s hope. I beat a dead horse with this topic, because it’s critical that we realize it within ourselves and grow it within others. The moment that you lose hope is the moment that you kill those dreams. Don’t lose hope, and don’t let others trample what you’ve created.
Life will send some clouds our way…at some point, we have to learn to embrace them. Besides, a whole lot of good stuff grows from those storms, right? Be well, and thanks for reading.
