I am a middle-aged, single person who is currently reflecting on where I have been, what I have done, and where I want to go for the rest of my life. I am sure almost everyone does this kind of reflecting at this age. Middle age crisis, right? Well… I am not having a crisis… (or maybe I am?) I am always of the mindset… “It is what it is… now how can we move forward from here?”
When you are younger you think you are invincible and have so much time to do all the things you want to do. Well, if you are like me, you want to do EVERYTHING! And you try. I wish I would have had the foresight to stay focused and narrowed my scope just a bit more. A jack of all trades and a master of none, rings into my ears from time to time, however I do believe I am pretty good at a lot of things, I did not use my potential to achieve what I wanted to achieve. I had a lot of fun doing what I did. I made some marks here and there. I have a lot of really good experience and am a well-rounded person because of it.
Anyway, I decided to start a blog… maybe my musings, rantings, trials and tribulations will be helpful, insightful, or at least darn right amusing… I know I laugh at myself and my life situations all the time. It’s better to laugh than cry, yea another cliché – I think I am full of them, but sometimes we just need to do a bit of both. I am strong and would rather laugh than admit defeat or weakness and cry. Crying is for crybabies, weaklings, whimps, people that aren’t strong like me… well, I have found a bit of crying is “okay” sometimes and it does seem to help cleanse the soul. I like to release something out into the black hole and hopefully disappears forever. Let it go… move on… I certainly don’t want that whimpiness or feelings that are less than productive to stay hanging around. That is for sure! I do feel sorry for whoever is on the other side of that black hole!
Anyway, I stay positive most of the time and do ALOT of laughing and enjoy a lot of MUSIC. Both are the best remedy for your ailments… no joke, or maybe YES, joke! and yes SING and/or Play music! Write your own song, express yourself. Get it out. I think a lot of what is wrong in this world is that people don’t feel they can express themselves without getting ridiculed or bullied. Everyone has the right to be themselves, whether some like it or not. Feelings, emotions, anger and love that are not expressed bottle up inside until someone explodes. When someone talks, tries to share… please listen. Don’t judge. Don’t bully!
I like to focus on the positive and you can train your mind to be positive. A good exercise is to make a list of things you are thankful for each day. It can be as simple as the sunrise, the air that you breath, a flower, a song on the radio that made you smile. As you start this task each day, your heart and mind changes to looking for good and the negative just starts to fade away. Even on the worst day you can find GOOD all around you… just look and “see”!
You may not be religious, or a christian, but I proudly am. And I have read over and over it is good to Thank Jesus for these blessings you notice each day and I do. If I drop something on the floor and I can’t find it (middle aged eyes don’t work as well anymore darnit!) I say Jesus help me find it, and more times than not, I find it! I then say THANK YOU Jesus. I hear a bird singing and I say THANK YOU Jesus! I don’t want to turn anyone off with my Christianity… you can achieve a thankful heart without Jesus, and you should do it either way, but I am blessed and enriched to have these belief’s in my life, just saying… Do what is good for you, but don’t get offended if I share my thoughts and what is in my heart, for that is who I am. And you are who you are. And that’s okay. How boring the world would be if we were all just alike!
