The more positive you are the less doubt you carry. Conquer your fears and you can do anything. Success lies within your level of determination. Don’t let negative influences cloud your journey. Don’t let failure stop you from moving forward. Live your life finding all the positives and be grateful for the results.
Never Give Up
It’s hard to wait. It’s hard to try over and over again without any good result. It’s hard to fail and not feel a little worse each time. How much can you take before it’s time to give up?
Most of my close friends and family can a test to how close to edge of life I have got. They have seen me fall hard, again and again. They have seen me ready to give up, ready to say I am done. They have seen me scream, cry, and beg the universe for an answer. All of us will literally stumble upon hard times. In fact if you have never faced a challenge that has pushed you to your limits, you have so much more of your life to experience yet.
As the sweat from my forehead beads into the tears of my face, the monster has arrived. I have fought the good fight that my journey may be over. My next destination is thru the thick fog and I have no idea what is inside there, or what lies on the other side. I’m going in and you better believe I am coming out the other side as a better person! This I do know. Every challenge I face makes me stronger more willing to face the next.
You know what the people I care about have never seen? They have never seen me stay down when I fall. They have never seen me stop when there is just so much more road to follow. They have never seen me make a goal and not go after it with everything I have got. Those I keep close to my heart have never seen me give up.
Don’t give up on your dreams and you goals it is not worth it. No matter how long that journey is, keep going. No matter how many times you have to try and try again, keep at it. When you fall get up and never stop. When you have to wait and there is nothing else you can do, you wait. Your goal is close by, your destination is right around the corner, that treasure you have been looking for all your life you are about to run right into, but the only way to see any of it is to never give up. NEVER GIVE UP.
Anyone that says life is easy is a fool. Anyone who wants to experience their full potential is going to stumble through the gates of victory out of breath with scraped knees. Carrying the satisfaction of making it is what strengthens everyone for the next seemingly impossible journey. Everything is possible in life but it takes a person willing to never give to get there.

If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. ~Jim Rohn
Exactly! Thank you Jim. If you don’t like your job, change it. If you don’t like where you live, change it. If you don’t like how you think change it. The only thing that keeps you from a happier life is YOU! Your true friends will support you. Your family will support you, even if they don’t agree. You want a better life you have to be willing to change because whatever you don’t like about your life now is not going to change for you.
It was the sign of my watch I wore on the cruise ship stopping that said it was time to go home, which also lead to my move to Florida. I just found my watch among my stuff again to my surprise it was working again. I take this as another sign that I am were I am supposed to be. I think my fate lies deeper in the sign that my watch is not just working again but at the exact time that it is right now! WHOA! I do not have a straight answer for this occurrence and perhaps here and now is where I need to keep my mind. Maybe it’s a sign that right now is what matters most in my life…right now is what matters most in all our lives! (Ask The Ocean)
Life is hard. You must find yourself before you find success or love. Even when you do find yourself that quest for what you want most in life still seems so far away. The pillars of life collapse all around you as you move forward. It’s when those pillars of life slam down right in front of you that makes you want to turn around. You can’t turn around. You are so far into your quest for a true life to live, that turning around seems just as impossible as moving forward. Stuck you search the skies above for answers, but the real answers lie within. Every answer worth receiving in life is inside your heart and soul. The real challenge is not discovering that it is in there, it is actually finding it once you know. Life will bring you to your knees and when it does you must close your eyes and release all doubt that exists within. Leave more room for the answers to live your life to the fullest. You will not find what you are looking for in a past life or the next, you will find everything within you RIGHT NOW!

Kelly Clarkson, “Catch My Breath”
“…no one can hold me back, I ain’t got time for that.”
What a great and inspiring song. As we work hard in life, we sometimes need to catch our breath and we become stronger. When you mature in a positive direction you realize how valuable your time is. I love my life and I am grateful that everything I put into this world I get back. So much is going on in my life that sometimes I need to take a step back and catch my breath. What are some great things you want in your life? Do you need to catch your breath going after them?
Have a great weekend, I love all of you. Let the Gratitude spread.
Blow Your Own Mind
I visited my hometown area for Christmas and New Years in the Northwest parts of the Chicago area. Being a resident of Florida now and it being winter time I was anxious to see the snow again. Sense I booked my flight I hoped for snow for some time, and waited in controlled excitement for that day, just like I waited for my day at sea on my cruise vacation a few years ago. That day never came and as I flew back home that snow began to fall.
I felt weird on the way home and I told my mom and dad it was weird that I was flying home to what most people call a vacation spot, and where I came to visit was where I used to live. I landed in Florida only to hear my Father say the snow plow just went by and my Mother sends me pictures of the 4 inches of snow she got and it is still coming down. I missed what I really wanted to see by hours not even a whole day!
Should I be disappointed? NO! When you do something enough it becomes habit. On a journey to love everything in life you must take initiative to find the positives in the not so glamorous situations. Finding positives has become second nature to me. Yes I am from Illinois, snow is glamorous to me! Right off the bat anyone can conclude that I left just in time, without having any weather delays and I got home safely. I was sitting in my room in shorts and a t-shirt; thinking about the snow I was missing, I was sweating and it felt so hot here! I was antsy to look into my new Spanish-speaking program and my new Chakra set but my mind lays distracted by the snow I missed.
I took the time to figuring out what was going on in my head and I realized I wrote my answer to this issue of missing the snow, last Friday!
Variety Friday (purpose) “Finding your way means stepping away from something good for something better.”
I actually got a little teary eyed writing this because my life now has been full of inspiration and I have so much to be grateful for as a result. On more than one occasion I have succeeded in blowing my own mind. This was one of those times. These self discoveries are what taking your own path in life is all about. I shed no disappointment for not seeing more than a light dusting of snow when I left, but I do take pride in standing here in Florida, a resident for only about 6 months, and looking back up north with praise for what this world has given to me up to this point. There is more coming, there is always more coming if that is what you believe in. The snow is good but for my life the ocean is better.

Variety Friday (Purpose)
How is that for a New Year resolution? Put more meaning in your life for 2015. What a great statement! I have created so much more of a meaningful life in 2014 but I already know that 2015 is going to be even better! I will be grateful for every new adventure that comes my way as my Ultra Positivism grows even stronger every single day.
I am on a quest to love everything in life but more importantly I am growing purpose in my life! It is a journey with many challenges but also endless roads of reward. Finding your way means stepping away from something good for something better. Finding your purpose in life provides no guaranteed results. You will meet people who don’t understand, you will crash into people who oppose you, but in time you will meet those that share the same views in everything you believe in. FIND THOSE PEOPLE.
What are you meant to do? What are you meant to be? I know who I am, who I want to be, and where my future is headed and I can thank 2014 for that as well as show gratitude for all those who have been a part of it! Reaching for what I am meant for in this life every day gets easier all the time! Each person I meet, each challenge I face, each thought that comes to writing, each goal I meet, each step forward, and each breath I take gives me the positive energy to find my purpose. I AM UNSTOPPABLE!
You are in charge of putting meaning into your life you can either sit around in your routine or you can get your butt up and make some memories on the journey of purpose in your life.
