Figure It Out
It is very inspiring what we can discover through hard times. We just have to be open to receive the messages within the challenges of change in our lives. Positivism, gratitude, empathy and progress should be our main focus to figuring out each of our lives.
Joy In Challenges
In order to live a full life you need to challenge yourself. Challenges in life are not always easy but if you find the joy in these challenges you will see a lot better outcome on the things you go after in your life.
I Am Different
I have had cellulitis for over a week now. I was stripped from my Alaskan cruise adventure but I had a great time when I was there. You will hear more about it soon! I am at home healing now; I have no desire to eat, watch tv, listen to music, read, do anything artsy, and I am struggling to write this even. My mind has given me no shortage of a thought process. I am thinking about EVERYTHING! I am grateful that I have learned to be more mature and productive with my thoughts at least.
The biggest thing I think about is my life. Who I was and the transition to I am and want to be. 3 years have gone by sense I saw the dark depths of my life for the 2nd time. Only this time I ran out. I climbed out with a plan. A plan for a better me? Taking risks that average people will never take. Some I succeeded some I failed. I stand and continue to move forward. I have harnessed a completely new life. There is no backup plan to my old life, the old me. Some people can’t handle the change; some people don’t understand the change and others could care less. I got away from those people. I may disappear into the beautiful and busy lives some of you have but when you think of me or reach out for me, my hand will always be right there!
Meeting new people has been slow but promising because the positive people I search for are being drawn to me little by little. Most of my time however has been spent pushing me to be this person I envision. Someone to inspire many with everything I do in life.
Everything happens for a reason right? Well I get the reason for cellulitis. I am moving too fast right now. I am conquering things and moving forward so easy and so fast and I am about to step into a new amazing wave of my life and I need to slow down. The Illness is forcing me to slow down. I don’t need to be an overnight motivational speaker but I do need to motivate this world as soon as I say I am ready. I have told my story time and again and I leave the heartache out of it yet people are still completely inspired with what I am trying to achieve. People stop and listen to the end and they have nothing but encouragement to share after that.
I am different, and I will make a difference!
Change to #1
At the forefront of change part of moving forward in life is letting go of things. You really have to ask yourself, “Is this person or thing vidal to my current main stage goals?”
I stand at a pivotal point in my life where things will drastically change soon and that is on top of all the changes I have already challenged through. In order for this change I must let go of even more. I have let go of alot of importance in my life for the greater good of my future. I did this with my move from Illinois to Florida. I have had a storage unit holding on to things for over a year up here in Illinois. I have been carting many things house to house for years before that even. I am up here in Illinois now, and this weekend I am having a garage sale to sell the remainder of my things I have here.
The challenge for me is sorting through the memories, good and bad, and deciding what to sell, what to keep and what to throw away.
As I sit here for a stormy Sunday morning, I will open the garage door one more time. Rain or shine, everything must go. I have a new life to lead and a brand new refined main goal to achieve! Motivational Speaker to Children.
Marc Mero you are my spark for change and you will be my inspiration to follow but you hold a title that I want and I intend to go after it….Americans #1 requested School Presenter! Reach big and thats where my eyes are now.
Be a Paragon!
A week ago I started a book about how everything happens for a reason. A couple days ago I talked to a good friend about self love. Yesterday I receive one of the best compliments EVER! My new friend called me a paragon. The Irony is I was already going to write about these things anyways!
In “Everything Happens For A Reason” by Mira Kirshenbaum I learned that once you realize the reason things happen, you have to live within those reasons and write a new story for yourself. You need to stop living in the stories of who you once were. You need to love your life, you need to love the changes and the challenges in your life. Most importantly you need to love yourself, heart and soul. Conquer your fears and stand tall, always.
The title of my new life story is “Be a Paragon”. I want to strive for perfection in the eyes of those I inspire and I want to set examples for those who follow me in the future to come. I want to eat and breathe positivism. I want to be the example of positivism. I will tackle as many challenges as are needed to get where I want to be. As long as I am alive I will be striving for whatever great goal is next in my life.
What is your story? Do you like that story? Maybe it is time to change that story. In order to change the story you are still living now you have to close the book and open up a brand new one. Sometimes a complete start over of your life may be in order. The last question is, how badly do you really want those positive changes in your life and are you willing to do what it takes to reach these goals in your new life story?
I am a paragon, I am the next big thing, I am amazing. I am not conceded but I will tell myself these things till the end of my days! I am worth it to me and you should be worth it to you. Be a Paragon.

Variety Friday (anonymous)
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.
Variety Friday (Attitude)
Digging through old pics I found this from about 5 years ago. I was a Graphic Designer at a very big sign shop, and the salesman would give me these Change Notice papers on their projects. Some of them were coming to me with a bad attitude so I wrote this change notice of my own and put it on the front of my monitor so when they came to see me they saw my sign. Needless to say it worked!
Nobody deserves your bad attitude that was caused somewhere else. Love life and all the people in it. Try making yourself happy instead of making everyone else miserable. Be ultra positive, be amazing, be GREAT!
Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to share my blog with your friends.
