Defy Gravity

I had a well paying yet odd part time job. The money was good and when I say good I mean AWESOME. The stress level though was intense and travel took me miles each gig

Since all of my part time work goes for grad school I'm back to looking for something else

Being an optimist I know I'll defy gravity and this new spot will be there

This is a lesson we can look at in many parts of our lives: relationships, locations, etc

Not Alone

I've been reading on Facebook about break ups and some new relationships.
We all want, well most of us went, some one stable to be on a journey with.

Are you someone you'd date?  Be honest, be real, be yourself and your bound to meet that companion

People in Boston and West have shown strength and support

Before "first responders" came standbyers, onlookers and neighbors

Its how I choose to live my life. Not waiting for someone else to come along and help

Just one: can we,you and I reach out to one person today?

That's how I'd like to be treated too

The Self

Self-acceptance is the process of befriending the Unconditioned Self—the part of you that is more than just your name, your history, your story, your failures or your successes.

 You are more than just your experiences or how other people see you or the clothes you wea

Over heard in a class I'm taking, "You can't catch the good things"
An example used was in an elevator, there's bound to be someone with a cold or flu and if not careful you can catch that.

I don't agree that some one (YOU) can't catch an affirmation.

When I see someone smile, I smile.  When I see someone doing good I'm reminded I can do good things too.

Simply smile and see who catches it

Our Dreams

I have had the most vivid dreams lately and not all when I've been asleep.

I dream of a world where hunger and illness are no longer a catastrophe

I've dreamt of being free from addiction though I haven't 'used' in 18 years, that demon keeps knocking at my door.

I stopped dreaming about my future since there's plans for that and ones I work daily on making those plans a reality

Its the dreams of my/our past I can do without

My/our focus is on our dreams of what will: not what was

It's OK to get lost

I've found some of my best adventures, whether road trips, cycling rides or even long walks have been those times I lost my way.  Since I tend to start out with a plan, a road map etc finding I took a miss turn sure brings against and then awe.

Dating has been like that too.  I've 'looked for' that perfect guy only to find someone I didn't plan on  ever EVER talking too turned out to be a treat. Yes, that goes for friendships too. Trust me on that

Lets get lost together, try a new unplanned path and see what joys we can find together.

There is always a way....

"Where the past is the past & the present has infinite possibilities."
I hear and say this each week on the fist day of the week, Sunday and it's how I really & I mean REALLY try to look at life. I can't change what I did but live in the NOW while looking for a wonderful future

I regret a few things but refuse to let that control my NOW.

Let's all give up our regrets, know our past belongs where it WAS together

When have you just said "Hi" to a stranger? If your like me not too often

Try it once. See someone walking and without expectation say "Hi", offer a smile and keep going

It's spreading joy; joy and care.  Trust me, that joy and care will come back to you

I spent Easter alone.Well not completely alone since I was at work but I was far away from family both of family of blood and choice.

Could have been a major downer for me since both families in one way or another always met for food and sharing of stories

I kept my spirits high and a smile on my face that came from the heart throughout the day

You too keep that negativity away by looking upward, feeling spry and just being positive
