Face Take Two

In Life, it takes a lot of courage, patience and determination to stand strong against people who don’t have your best interest in your heart.

Not everyone in the World had the same values and not everyone has the same opportunities.  It’s interesting how deeply people affect each other.

These days I am focusing on making sure that negativity stays far from my mind.  Spreading love and goodness will be on the forefront of my mind.  Not everyone shares the same views or perception.

Why do people do bad things?

If we only knew the answer to that question.

Beating Drum

There is always so much on the mind.  Life is a series of interesting events.  So much happens throughout the course of one year.

It’s amazing how quickly things can change.  This is one of the most fascinating parts of Life, the unforseen events that take place and the unpredictability of each day.

Learning to keep a positive mind will help good things to occur.  Wishing for the best for everyone is one way to achieve happiness.

In Life things won’t always go the way we wish, but keeping faith in ourselves and God will keep peace in our hearts.

Negativity needs to be managed and the focus of the mind should be on what beneficial and positive actions we can take to improve our surroundings.

Not everyone will be understanding and some people will be cruel.  Situations are sometimes difficult and our will to live as good, loving people will constantly be tested.

Do what you can to make your best Life.  Support other people and make your way through each day with as much grace and mind control as you can to see Life through beautiful eyes.

Most importantly, try to see the Lives of other people from different perspectives.  Things in Life change and progress.  Not everything stays the same, so seeing how other people view things can help you to become better people and give you the ability to grow, share and teach.

“My heart is a beating drum
Moves mountains it’s so strong
My love is a silent song
Everybody moves
Everybody moves

And I wait all day, I won’t give up
’Till the sound of the drums bring you back to Love
And I wait all day, I won’t give up

Back to love
Back to love”. – Armin Van Buuren feat. Laura Jansen

Good Spirit

This Christmas I definitely received many gifts.  Generousity is a strong trait from many people in my Life and we enjoy giving and making each other happy.

Material things are awesome and I am grateful!!  But, Christmas isn’t all about gifts.  Christmas is about spending time with loved ones and working together to feel good.

Positive teamwork breaks barriers and boundaries.  Miracles do exist.   This, I know for sure.

Each person has their own views on God, Jesus and Faith but remember that all good things are fueled by Love.

God is good; take a look around at all the beautiful gifts we receive from the World.

Keep a good spirit and a Very Merry Christmas to You and your Family.

Dradle, Dradle, Dradle, Break Dance!

Bingo

Working in a Recreation Department of a Nursing Home is challenging in that to keep activities and daily Life interesting/exciting, my team and I must create a schedule of events that are fun and ever changing.  Boredom often occurs when a schedule does not provide much variety in the activities planned for the day.

As the Holiday season is upon us, typically people from the community volunteer.  Nursing Facilities are a popular place that community members/churches enjoy volunteering because there are many people who don’t get visitors.  There are many people who don’t have family or friends, so when local community members are interested in spending time in the facility, it is usually the case that the Residents are happy.

Today, 24 children from a local Jewish school visited to host a Hanukkah bingo game.

The children were young, not one child was over 10 years old.

The children were all really great kids.  They brought an energy that was contagious.  They enjoyed laughing and talking with the Residents.  They set up to play Hanukkah bingo and they sat side by side with the Residents helping them to enjoy the game.   Each time there was a winner, the room erupted in cheer and the kids would yell “Dradle, Dradle, Dradle” and spin around three times.  It wasn’t long before the Residents were yelling along with the kids and shouting in excitement.

Complementing the students to their teacher, I thanked her for taking the time to bring the kids from school to help run a unique program.  Their teacher nodded her head and smiled, “You know, we didn’t take just one class, many of these boys and girls don’t see each other all day, they only learn together for math class.  So they don’t all really even know each other.”

Watching the way the kids interacted with each other was very impressive.  They worked together, they helped each other and it was obvious that they were enjoying themselves.

Wow, you would never know they weren’t friends.”

The teacher smiled and said, “I think that what they are doing, is rising to the occasion.”

Hearing those words, I stopped to contemplate what the teacher had said.

Nodding, I agreed, “That is exactly what these kids are doing, they are rising to the occasion and look at the difference they are making.  Good life can happen when you view things from a positive perspective.”

Being a good leader is helping the people you teach not be afraid to accept challenges.  It is good to introduce people to different ideas and set the example that rising to the occasion to adapt to new settings can be really good and very fulfilling.

Today I learned a very valuable lesson from a group of 8 year olds who really didn’t know each other but pulled together to form a united team that worked together to help other people feel good.

Ever Changing Story

14 Dec

Life is full of many surprises.

Keeping in control of emotions is hard.

These days, I have let my emotions overpower my logic.

There are times I am more upset than I care to be and then I start feeling nervous.  Immediately, I push nervous feelings out of my mind and pray to God to keep me strong and show me peace.

Things are so unsteady in Life that sometimes I wake up already feeling tense.  Real Life haunts my dreams.

Today I woke up with a pit of anxiety in my stomach.  This is not the way to start a day.  So I prayed, I am writing and keeping my mind focused on positive things that make me feel better.

Placing too much trust in people has got me in a challenging and sad situation.

Because I can’t control my situation, I have become irrational and have a hard time handling my very strong emotions.

Losing composure leaves me feeling weak but the only sight I have my eyes focused on is picking up to live my best Life.

There are good people.  There are bad people.  People who will never leave your side and people who will turn their backs.  People will disappoint you and will act in ways that are challenging.

Keep your head up, keep smiling, pray for peace and Live each day doing positive things.  Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

Spread Love and Not Hate.  We have one Life to get everything right.

It has been raining all week.

People become gloomy in the rain!

But there is no need to feel gloomy with good people around who enjoy laughing and fun!

It is important to spread positive energy at any points possible.

Even when things are out of the ordinary or not going to plan.

But since when do plans always go according to what we think……..

We can only work hard to do what we can to live well, enjoy Life and keep happy.

The Flow Must Go anyway you look at it…..so might as well look good.

HERE’S THE THING………….

3 Dec

The best kinds of people are the ones who make you feel alive, who show you new things, who help you break limits and who teach you that just when you think that there is nothing else to learn or see –

The World is very big you see…….

A lesson learned, knowledge gained, happy feelings, not in pain…………

So while the World around is spinning fast, remember the person who makes you laugh, who reminds you how great it is to live and how it’s always important to give – love and light and everything good – and this is doing everything we could to contribute a piece of greatness to the World.
