PASSION

What are your passions? What do you desire most in life? Have you experienced them? Are you working towards them? How many passions do you have?

Passion is important in your life. We are not robots that just eat sleep and work. Some of you may feel like robots some days but there are things you are interested in beyond the normal routine of your day. Your passions could be as simple as a good book or homemade cheese cake, but also as lavish as moving to France or reaching the top of Mount Everest. Passion is not just a thing it’s a journey, the path to things you love in life. Without passion along the way I would never be where I am today.

People who have and show a lot of passion are the ones that are flourishing in happiness. Passionate people are the ones that can be positive through the toughest of challenges. Most of all Passionate people carry a love inside of them, unique to them, that they share with everyone.

Fill your life with passion, Fill your path with love and be grateful for the journey.

Variety Friday (Alexander Perls – Storm)

I love songs with no words. It gives you a chance to create your own story with beautiful music. When I listen to this song “Storm” by Alexander Perls it really makes me think about my life transforming right before my eyes. All the troubles are washed away from you and the pure rain is falling and filling you with all the greatness to come.

The next time it rains go outside with this song and just look straight up. As you hear this song and feel that positivism hitting your face and soaking right into your soul, you then can make that great connection with your life.

I hope you can find inspiration in this song as I have. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

If you have not already share my blog with your friends and family and check out an like my Facebook as well.

Much gratitude to all of you.

From The Inside Out!

Do you love yourself?

Loving yourself is where everything good starts in your life. No lasting good can grow in your life without first honoring what it means to be you. No success has flourished in the hands of those who simply copy others. We are all original. We all have something to offer this world. We all have love to offer to ourselves. Believe in yourself, love yourself and you shall see a brighter path on the journey that is your life.

Be confident with yourself and your goals. Your journey will be full of failure but if you get up each time you will see your success soon enough. Doubt yourself and your path shall be filled with regret.

You cannot fully love another person without loving who you are first. If you don’t believe you are amazing, that is the image you portray to others. If you are confident and love who you are the right person or people are out there to show you that same love in return.

Who are you? Let the world know. Be it to the masses or one person at a time tell the world you are great and knock down those that stand opposed to your own positive self-image. We all have the greatness in us and it is up to ourselves to retrieve it from our own hearts before we can share it with others. Love yourself on the inside first and then learn to love everything else on the outside of your life.

You need to live your life from the inside out! Only then can all your dreams come true. I ask again…..Do you love yourself?

Variety Friday (Fortune)

What if the fate of the world relied on your fortune cookie?

fortune-cookie-believe

Yes, yes, I know fortune cookies are just fun for most, but how many times have you gotten one that was right? I just got one on Wednesday that really nails it for me right now.

20141106_210728

“Your spirit of adventure leads you down an exciting new path.”

This fortune could not be more right. My life is full of adventure, including adventures within! You better believe it is an exciting path. Everything in our life has value, every person we meet has value you. The first step in discovering the value of things or people you encounter in your life is to BELIEVE! If you don’t have belief that it will work or benefit you there is no chance it ever will. If you just believe, you are that much closer to an opportunity for something very exciting in your life. I can guarantee that people’s lives have been forever changed simply at the crack of a fortune cookie. Those messages are all pre-written but perhaps we are all meant to find that fortune that changes our life?

I’M NOT DONE YET!

Sometimes you have to give up everything to find the one thing you want the most. Only the strong can make that risk. Only the strong can let go of every comfort they know. Only the strong can venture away from a career they have mastered for something new. Only the strong can walk away from people that love you and the people you love. Only the strong can fail 100’s of times and still reach for what is right in their heart. We can do anything. You can do anything, you are strong. You just have to take that risk and get started. There are better things out there for your life, you have to be strong enough to go after them.

Slowly but surely I will find where I belong and search the planet to find those that share my same views as we unite. I will climb my mountain of failures and raise a flag that says “I’M NOT DONE YET” If I can breathe there is still hope for something better. If I have a heart beat I can still love, and my soul will guide me. All I have to do is listen, hope for the best in life and be grateful for anything hope brings me because this is my life! I decide my life.

The easiest most attractive path is not always the right one and before long you are too comfortable for change. Get uncomfortable and change your path. Change your life, take risks, and be strong. You are not done yet!

Dinner with a 1st grader

Usually I use Wednesdays to talk about ways of positivism but I am going to change it up for a worthwhile story about going to the Chinese buffet.

2 Fridays ago I went by myself to the Chinese buffet. A well known fact about me is that I LOVE buffets and I cannot resist going to them. The daughter of the owner was talking and giggling to her mother while I was paying my check.

The mom then asks me “do you work at (censored) Elementary School?”

I said “yes I do.”

“My daughter says she sees you at P.E.” (Physical Education)

“Yes that would make sense; she must be in first grade.”

“Yes”

I turned to the daughter and told her to make sure she said hi to me the next time she saw me in P.E.

I did not see her the whole week but I did end up going to the same buffet this past Friday. I saw her there but I did not say anything. I sat down went about my business stuffing my face with Americanized Chinese food. That little girl came up to me and asked if I remember her. Of course I did. She was also sad that she did not see me at all last week. I asked for her name and made sure she knew mine.

The little girl said, “I am going to run up to you in P.E. and see if you remember my name!”

This adorable conversation went on for about a half hour or so while I was eating. At first she was standing by me then eventually she sat down in the booth across from me.

In her innocence I doubt she knew that she made my night. So sweet of her to sit and chat with me, so thankful for her mom to trust me, and so grateful for not only a full stomach but a full heart as well that Friday night.

Children are the future of our existence. If we can mold their innocence into a more positive life and way of thinking, we can certainly look for a better tomorrow. We need to be positive ourselves in order to share that positive image for our children. We need to live a positive lifestyle in order for our children to lead a positive life. They don’t learn positivism from books, movies, or lesson plans; they learn from the connection from your heart and soul to theirs. Positivism is as innocent as a child, why not nurture our inner child in order for our children to have the opportunity to live a more positive life!

I literally could start a whole new blog just on my interactions with the students at my school. My experience with working on the cruise ship was amazing but my journey working with elementary school students is a far more amazing experience at heart. Love ourselves, love to children, and love the future!
