A little over 2 years ago I started this blog. I started it on fundamentals of positivism. I told you right away how important goals are in your life and I told you how important they are in mine. The thing more important than having goals is achieving them. Once you have done all you could, once you stand within your achievements it is always important to make new achievements. For every goal you achieve make a new one. Your life is not written in stone. People change, we change, and I change. We always want that change, but in a positive direction. I have achieved some of my goals and changed others in my life time, but in the last 2 years my determination for my goals has been greater than any years of my life.
Formerly a Graphic Designer my goal was to sample what else is out there for me. This may sound like I am a crazy job hopper but so be it. I mentioned wanting to try Marketing, Event Planning, Social Media networking, and working on a cruise ship. Can you guess which one I did not do? Well believe it or not I have tried every single one! It was cool to look at my goals I wrote on my blog and realize how much I achieved in my career in just 2 years time. It was anything but easy and worth it every step of the way. I even went above and beyond my goal here. At one point I was painting grout in a new hospitals bathroom and I also started a new career as an ASD ESE Paraprofessional. It does not stop there I realize I was meant to explore more.
This blog was not only meant to share positivism but to improve my writing. Certainly it is not novel quality work yet but all you grammatically charged followers can absolutely appreciate how far I have come with my writing skills and trying new things. I also wanted to grow this blogger bigger and bigger. I do not have nearly as many followers as I had hoped but gathering those followers is an art form in itself, an art form that will take priority at the right time. For now I am proud of my 200+ posts with over 6,000 views from 85 different countries! I owe allot of my success with followers to those that have found me and those that I have found to help me get stronger.
A big goal I have kind of set aside was getting back in touch with my fine art side. I am ok with this because writing has been quite the art form and learning experience for me. I have lost the desire to own an art gallery but I have certainly gained something more exciting in its place. I can still bake a cake and decorate it like nobody’s business but this is also something I have stepped away from. I changed and my goals are evolving in that direction.
It was a goal of mine to explore spirituality once again. In the past 2 years I have attended many services of different religions. I am happy to say that I may have found my place in the spiritual world, and for now I am going to role with it. I had said to myself that I wanted my blog to be a non religious form of positivism and I will stick to that. God, Angles, and whoever you respectfully worship is one avenue we can take for a more positive and prosperous life style. In my experience most people’s positivism is religious base, I want to find more avenues of positivism outside of that. Certainly you can connect many things of what I say to your faith but I want to give you something different. I will certainly have blog post in my future that are base off faith ideas, I am sure of it, and I respect and accept everyone’s differences and I am grateful to have found so many people that respect my differences.

Here is a spiritual discovery I seem to have found within myself a few months ago. As a whole it’s a very inspiring message but if you only read part of it, it may not make sense!
I have fallen upon the rule of the underworld. I have died and now I walk through the depths of hell but I have a small view of the fields of heaven in my thoughts. I walk the corridors of the hidden and lost. I shall find and follow what motivates me in this new life. I have been lying to myself for some time, certain things will never happen upon a double edged sword. When I discover my new direction is when my new journey begins. These chains I will break and challenges I will face shall be my motivation to move forward.
I stand embodied by the day and the rebirth of new life. Current life changes have brought me back to a mind of basic values that have never changed. Old meanings I hold close in the present have lost value. I stand alone in displacement where my regular world no longer makes any sense to me. I seek eyes of new meaning in my life. I transform from the darkness to explore and become reborn.
This is the time to follow my heart. If I fail in this path my deepest self needs will be ignored. It is time to connect with animal and nature. What am I passionate about? Where do I belong? I need to let go to be wild and free in this world and find my place. I will not abandon all that I know and love but I need to step away from the places I frequent and the people I love and explore nature. There is a great connection out there somewhere and I have to find it.
To follow my journey there are many things I must give up, many things I must sacrifice in hopes it guides me to a greater good. I will sacrifice many things in the light of change. The road will be long and uncomfortable but only the challenging roads can get me anywhere worth going. I will fight with my comfort levels but in time I will level out stronger than before. It starts by being a hero to myself and living.
It is very unclear what freedoms will be gained from my journey. Angels will be the guiding light to those freedoms. I must unmask my deepest fears and let them transform into something more beautiful. I have to face my fears but I also need to decide now. I must understand my fears to step upon them with glory.
As the cycle completes and the journey comes to its goal I will ignite all I have learned with the new light of my soul. Maybe I am at home now, I may find a new home in my journey or I may go back home to those I know. Home is where you are comfortable, home is important. I think my journey may be to find where I can call home and sometimes we must travel great distances with both our feet and our minds to discover where we belong. Even if we feel like we don’t belong we need the journey to discover where we do, even if that journey takes us back to where we started because we reenter familiar surroundings with a new heavenly life view.
It is my life at hand, It is your future, It is our destiny, we can never stop until mother nature tells us we have learned enough in our life. Let your tears of sorrow fall back to the salty seas, and capture the tears of joy for they will form diamonds in your future. -UPwithmarc
