It’s Always A Good Time

There’s always time to celebrate someone in our lives. There’s always time to let them know we appreciate them for who they are. Even though maybe they haven’t done much for us. .

It’s always a good time to tell someone you Love them. Lord knows we could use more Love in the world.

It doesn’t have to be a birthday. It can be a Tuesday. A Saturday. Any day. Any time. Anyone.

Our lives often times become the people we surround ourselves with and our relationships become how we treat others. Why not give ‘it’ away once in a while. Maybe a whole buch. Why not?

This world can always use a bit of unselfishness today.

Let’s go celebrate.

The Green Or The Red Pill?

I suppose we always have the choice of going through life anesthetized – numb or unconscious, finding brief moments in time to come up for air and convincing ourselves this is all that life has to offer in regards to being happy.

Or we can take control of our lives and question how we choose to be a participant in it by asking questions, challenging our own perspective and deep diving into our minds to understand how best we can operate in this great big world of ours as we grow, learn and evolve into the best version of ourselves we can be.

The choice is yours.

Expanding Time

Here’s an idea: If what we focus on expands, then why can’t we pay attention to the small things in our day where we can find joy in the minute details. Would this be a way of shifting our perspective and expanding the timeline of our lives in order to find more fulfillment and joy in what could be called the monotonous and sometimes drab tasks we take part in?

I believe the answer is – Yes. Of course this is a way. We’re fully capable of finding a way to make that 3 mile run a precious act of Love and fulfillment if we can only choose the right perspective. Maybe we can pretend as if this is the last time you ever get to run again. I bet we could find not only a way to enjoy it, but to be grateful for the opportunity. I did. Last night.

I’m no smarter than the average bear, but I certainly can do my best to stay out of the deep rut of life we can find ourselves getting into making our days less than average. It just takes a little effort and creativity.

We’re all capable of anything! That we must remember.

What It Takes

What does it take to get the job done? To solve the problem? To get the results you’re looking for?

Whatever it takes. I’m not trying to sound flippant, but that’s the truth. It’s different in every situation. And that’s okay. We don’t need to know before hand. That’s not important.

It would be no different than picking out the clubs you’re going to use before you tee off. You can tell yourself you’re going to hit your drive 285 yards down the middle of the fairway so that you have a nice 8 iron into the green and knock it 5 feet away so you can drain your birdie. So you grab your driver, 8 iron and putter. But, that may not happen.

It’s going to take whatever it takes. That may be your rescue club out of the rough or a 5 iron to punch it out from under a tree. There’s no reason to stress about it before you hit your next shot.

We just approach our next endeavor with a calm mind and bring to it as much information we have at the time (unless you want to collect more) and do what it takes get the job done. Sometimes it can be messy and sometimes it’s not. that’s okay. That’s what life looks like sometimes.

Then again, a par is a par no matter how get it.

Same Old Change

In systemizing areas of our lives in order to be as efficient and effective as possible, we can forget about the beauty and wonder of spontaneity and what it can bring.

We can schedule for the unknown. A time to explore. There is freedom in our systems if we can make sure to leave room for them.

Let’s not get too ridged in our day to day tasks. Although repeating effective action on a day to day basis can bring exponential results over time, we don’t want to burn ourselves out because we’re forgetting to add in some creative time.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Or something like that.
