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!
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!
Gratitude to JOY!
I started to exercise again and when I was walking I came across this
I certainly take this as a sign, well because it clearly is an actual sign that says “JOY” but it means so much more than that! I am discovering many joys in my life and as I start the next chapter of exercise it is certainly very inspiring to find this sign in the ditch. In my journey to find joy, well joy is finding me, and I owe it to gratitude! How cool is that? I am grateful for everything in my life and maybe this sign means something different. Tis the season to find joy and honor the world we live in. Perhaps this is simply a sign to brighten my holiday spirit!
I have been following signs for most of my life. Is it ironic that I worked in the sign design industry for many years only to step out and follow different signs in my life? In one way or another we are all following signs in our life.
I have always been saying everything happens for a reason. I am a full believer of seeing hidden signs in our life and letting them flourish with full potential. No matter how big or small, we are meant to find the signs we see, just as you were meant to read this.
We can be inspired by many things in our life and all we have to do is open our eyes and be ready to receive these wondrous joys. What joys have you found? Are you looking? What are you looking for? Sometimes you need to shut your eyes and let your heart find these things, they are everywhere and these joys will pop up anywhere in your life. Show gratitude for what you do have in life now and the joyous signs you see in your life will be your rewards of more things to be grateful for in your future, more signs of joy.
Joy to the world and let us be grateful for all that we have now so that we may find more joy to share with others in our future! Have a great day everyone!
