I love you!!!

If you have to ask yourself when was the last time I said “I love you” to those you love, then it’s time to say it. Never go to sleep wondering when the last time it was you said I love you to those you hold in your heart. Just because you may have been blessed to see the sun set on this evening, doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be equally blessed to see the sun rise on the day that’s yet to come…

I love you- 3 simple, yet extremely powerful words. Say them, mean them, back them up through your actions always. And never take for granted that those you love know you do…

To all my incredible family and friends all over this amazing world of ours, “I love you.”

Is it right for me?

Yes!!!

Every day events happen in our lives that test our spiritual faith. Whether it be your own life, or lives of those connected to you, or simply things happening in the world. How can the worlds news not affect any persons spiritual faith? Death of innocent children? People shot for no reason? Women raped? Mothers killed? Spouses killed? Behaviors excused based on social status. The world is full of people who make bad choices that impact far more then themselves. The world is also full of incredible people who live their lives to serve others, to serve the God they believe in, a greater source, a creator, whatever path a person chooses to travel. Perhaps some follow a more evil entity and believe that’s the path they are meant to travel. So many questions exist, sometimes the answers never come.

How many times has someone shot others, then killed themselves? Never answering the why’s? If someone breaks into your house and robs you, attacks you, but was on drugs, then it wasn’t their fault, because they were “hi”…. If someone shoots someone, then it’s the gun that gets blamed. Why do we always need a thing to blame? Why is it not the individual who makes the choice to do the wrong behavior? Why when a Dad kills his own children is he a monster, but when a Mother does so, she must have mental issues? A mother would never harm her children if she were in her right mind, but a father would? C’mon…

We generalize, we criticize, we blame and we excuse. These are the kinds of things that make us question God, life, self… questions that bring about only more questions. Have you ever spent time in the pediatric ward of a hospital for terminal patients? I have… Ever spent time working with people dying of AIDS, Cancer, and a laundry list of other terminal ailments? I have… Nothing is more heartbreaking then terminal children for me. They have not had a chance to screw up, to make bad choices, and their life is already coming to an end? I would pray and search for ways to understand… Was this their karma from a previous life? Were they murders, racist, rapists, monsters in another life, and this is their price now? That couldn’t be it, cause that would mean their parents and everyone who loved them was horrible in another life too, cause they were all suffering… I could get lost is the questions and never come up with a solid answer that could ever make sense of a child dying….

I learned a very long time ago that some questions will always be questions… And it’s when we stop asking them, that we stop knowing compassion, care, and empathy. We were created to love ourselves, and one another. To not see ourselves as greater than or less than. Live a life always allowing yourself questions. No one persons way is “the way.” We are allowed to have our own opinions, our own thoughts, and to make our own choices. People spend more time arguing religion than they do living true to the one they claim to follow… They do the same with politics. We are all individuals and we each have our own brain. You get to use it your way. Doesn’t matter if you are republican, democrat, or undecided… That is your choice, and not for anyone else to judge. Same goes for religion. Are you Christian, Catholic, Jehovah Witness, Mormon, Baptist, Bahai, Islamic, Jewish, the list goes on…. ? Does it matter? Is my way better, is my way right or wrong? All that matters is one simple thing…. and that is asking yourself….is it right for me?

Choose to give… Choose to live…

Often people take the simplest, greatest gift ever given to them for granted… LIFE!!! Whether it be their own or the lives of others. They don’t take time to truly appreciate and value life for the incredible gift that it is…. Life is such a blessing. Regardless to the hards that can enter in and out, and throughout ones life,. Just having the life to live, is a gift unlike any other. Know that you are blessed. Know your worth. Surround yourself by those who value and appreciate you, just as you do them. Whether this be in relationships, friendships, or work

Give of yourself, and don’t do so hoping that good will come back. Give simply because it’s what we were created too. Be compassionate. Be kind. Feel empathy for those who choose to live in ways of anger, resentment, darkness and evil… Feel bad that they lost their way, and perhaps through your example of true light and compassion they again may find theirs. And if they don’t, realize that is of their choosing, and not yours. The choices of others, are their to live with and too make… Your choices are owned, lived and made, by only YOU!!!

Welcome Friday :)

Just being busy doesn’t lead to anything of real value. Challenge yourself in all that you do. DO WHAT MATTERS, not just whats convenient. Do what brings you fulfillment, not just what is easy. Let your thoughts, words and actions express who you are and all you strive to be. There are many skills we can develop through study and we acquire the ones we choose to. The skill of living though, need only be done, as this always lives within YOU!
