When things get a little Rocky…

Don’t give up,

Get back up, and brush off the baggage that you have been piling up.

Every moment in a day, a week, a month, an hour is a time to begin

It’s not about starting over its about moving forward

To dwell on things of the past, things completed and things that are not in your control…

well quite frankly aren’t worth any time in your little minds

To fret, to stress, to worry that you’ve either made the biggest mistake of your life, or even think how you could’ve done better….

Only gets you more down, and it’s like crawling on the ground counting the grains of sand that have no purpose for you.

Is it good to reflect? To move to somewhere healthy or positive?

YES!!!

At first if you need to jump, jump into arms of someone you can trust

If there’s no light near, use caution, jumping might mean setting yourself up for failure again

A fall could make or break you.

It’s not a break if you get back up

Each time you choose to do what you know is good, or keep on getting back up …. The STRONGER SMARTER and better person you will become

To know the good days, you also must know that bad.

Or else… what makes a good day good?

Take a breath, a look around and seek out light, comfort and truth

I don’t know if it’s about the race, or the journey or just the lessons we learn and what we choose to do with them.

I can’t help but think of it like training, you must have

endurance: to make it to the end

speed: to run past your struggles and negative in this world

power: overcome your deamons

strength: when the time comes to hold yourself up and someone else….

And not every time will you make it… but keep training

Keep trying

Keep moving

And catch your breath when you’re tired… because there’s someone there to help you on the way

 

Starting To See Light Again…


lightsIn the same week, I had a huge attitude adjustment….

I had a huge pile of awesome land on my lap.

Although I wasn’t outright upset or angry, it was hard knowing that I had

no.1: No Job… or prospects for anything turning up.

no.2: No one available to help my with setting up counselor or headaches, or health in general ( A WHOLE other topic)

Then BLAMO

Without any force, or huge extension of major effort or struggle it was as if a gift given came to me.

Started Friday, and interview and a simple clothing store that offered me a part-time position with minimum wages, but as a safe, simple job. YAY!

Then Friday afternoon, had a specialist phone about setting up a counselor, and talked with me for over an HOUR, about life, advice, and consolation that things will get better.

Never had I ever had such a great talk with a professional, of any sorts, that genuinely wanted to help. Felt so relieved and enjoyed the entire experience.

Ahhhhh felt hope.

Then, the biggest surprise of them all!

I was approached by the owner of the gym I regularly attend, and he asked little bit about why I come to the gym.

Of course I blabbed about how much it changed my life and how it’s great thing everyone should do… etc etc etc.

Anyone with Passion about wellness would understand.

He smiled and said, “I thought so..”

He then asked me what I’ve been up to, and if I had a job.

I told him about my current situation, how I came back to my hometown…

He said, “Would you ever consider training?”

A huge grin crossed my face and he knew my answer.

He then said, ” Well, what would you think about coming in this week and I’ll show you around, I have papers you can fill out and we can start as soon as you want. You can take this as far as you want, and the staff here will certify you and help you build a clientele, all the while you can help out and get paid to run the gym.”

Mouth dropped to my feet, smile in my eyes and instant thought, “Impossible, impossible… so great.”

That was my no.3

My No.4 was the selling of my old winter tires to get money to buy groceries and have gas money to do errands in town and for Christmas.

Sometimes, it’s almost as if you need an attitude adjustment, before you can move on to better things so that you appreciate them more, and will have way more jeart into them.

Not for selfish desires but a knowing that it was a gift you will not forget.

I do feel I am finally seeing some light again.

Until this point it was just a knowing that there would be light, and I couldn’t lay down in darkness waiting for it to come to me, I had to keep pushing and not give up.

THE BEST PART!!!

This is the beginning,

i am just seeing a glimpse of this,

and it’s been a short time already
