Day 93

If you want to see a positive change in your life you have to actually be positive and act in a positive way. You can’t expect things to be positive. Life doesn’t work that way. Don’t wait for others to change things for you or for other humans to change to suit you.

How does that saying about change go?

“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

A Bright future

Every year I decide on a theme for my work and a goal for my life. 2019 it was simplify. 2020 was focus.

Now is the time to think about what you want to accomplish next year and work toward that goal. Ask yourself some of the questions I’m asking myself.

What is important in your life?What is at your core and how can you improve it?

I’m not sure yet what my goal is for 2021 other than it will have something to do with process, improvement and adventure.

Change a little

If we want something to change we can do small things to make it happen or we can wait.

Waiting might be the thing to do for a little bit, but if you can do something to improve your situation, even a small thing, do it.

Control what you can in your life to get what you need. Wait when it makes sense to wait.

Even a little change for the better is a good thing to do.

It’s a Concern

Humans don’t realize how fragile their health can become over time and as we age.

It’s concerning when the doctor says “I have your test results.” For a brief second my heart flutters and my stomach leaps.

All we can do is what is in our reach to do. Eat better. Move your body. Get rest. Drink water. Get out in the fresh air and sunshine.

Treat yourself the way my mommy treats her beloved plants, personal care and soft words. Do what you know is right for yourself.

What next?

Do you feel it? There is a strange feeling in the atmosphere. It’s like an anticipation that something is about to happen.

It’s the temperature drop and scent of water before the storm. It’s the shift in tone and posture when someone is about to lose it. It’s that other shoe is about to drop any minute feeling and the feeling is strong.

What’s next for us humans?

Self Loyalty Is a Thing

Be crazy loyal to yourself and to your goals. Keep your eye on your wants, however keep a clear perspective on your needs and needs of your humans.

Don’t get so wrapped up in pursuit of goals that you forget to love and be loved. All other things will fall into place if your goal is filtered through love.

Always ask yourself is this dream or goal in contradiction to love?
