Creativity at its finest 

Standard

Ssssh. Hear that?

No. 

Why not?

Probably because you have no idea what I’m asking you. If you don’t know what you’re listening for can you hear it? Not in conventional terms. 

That’s when you have to get a little creative. Expand your mind from the knowledge that you’ve currently attained and look for more. May I say even that you need to look outside of yourself and reach for a consciousness other than anything you’ve ever encountered. 

  
The perception of a perception. Let that linger. A door to a mindset that has not been opened yet. 

If I have only been to one place my whole life how can I make assumptions about the world in its entirety?

If I only have knowledge about my current lifetime how can I make choices for the future. Past Present Future. What is beyond those. Something infinite. 

Ponder that. 

What is beyond selfish thoughts that steam from the only knowledge one has. The need to look beyond what you were taught is important. More important than just assuming. Or judging for that matter. 

I need more. 

I want more than that for myself and others. 

The ancient mindset isn’t exceptable anymore. Enough of the question about why someone else won’t do what you do. Enough of the push and the pull between fear and freedom. 

  
Go beyond what is asked for. Go beyond what is taught and meet every mindset with something new. Love. 

What I’m saying is I understand that the world doesn’t know real love. So it’s hard to tell people to do what they really don’t understand. So let me say this. If what you’re doing leaves someone’s heart broken you did it wrong. If what you’re doing leaves others in need you did it wrong. 

It’s okay to get it wrong as long as the drive to continue to thrive for better is in place. The human race wasn’t built in one day. So let’s be creative when branching out to each other. Let’s get creative about spreading positivity and kindness.  Let’s grow in the knowledge to speak life into each other’s minds and hearts. 

  
We got this universe! I’m starting with this post but I’m open to expanding beyond because my belief that the world and I can be better is bigger than my thoughts. It should be Christmas all year not just in December.

Today 

Standard

Laying here motivating myself to get up and go outside and pick up trash.  I met a man on the bus stop and he spoke about many things that touched my heart. It was like getting an unexpected sermon. 

One of the things he said was that someone had told him to go and pick up trash. But the key was to not pick up more than he was thankful to do. If at any point he began to complain he was supposed to stop. 

That stuck with me. 

There’s a lot of things I will follow through with for the sake of doing them. But I tend to have something to say about everything. So today I am going to go pick up trash and see how thankful I can be at being a helper to the environment. 

I don’t know where my life is headed. 

Destiny is awaiting and I have no definitive answer for it. My life is a bit of a mess. My goals have disappeared. My mindset is on autopilot. My relationships are strained and my backpack is always ready to take run on the wild side of life. But my heart is heavy and my running shoes are comfortably easy to fit. And the only thing that I can think to do is what I said I would do earlier this week. 

Pick up trash.

So here’s to keeping a promise to myself. And hopefully I’ll get focused and have many more to keep.

Who am I?

Standard

Even the best layed plans have flaws.

Growing up my daddy had a saying “smart dummies”. He would point out how even though we had enough sense to come up with a plan. The effect still either got us in trouble or caused us pain. Sometimes the plan would make you lose everything you worked for.

The problem with me is that I never cared about anything. I felt so out of place in the world,that nothing meant anything to me. If I wanted to do it I did it. If I didn’t.. I didn’t. 

I am not alone. There are tons of people everywhere who have nothing to lose because we never wanted nothing or never had it to begin with.

It’s not until my brain adds value to it for it to mean something to me. Money holds no value. Hell anything that can be taken away holds no value.

Can you imagine having a gun in your face knowing that the person on the other end has the audacity to play God and chose if today is your last day? All because they can. All because that day was the day they decided they meant more than you did. And they made you aware of a world where even if you’re the nicest or worst person on earth THEY were going to decide your path for you.I can. It’s happened to me multiple times.

The things that matter to me have never been tangible. I’ve seen more bad than good. So good things are almost a myth to me. Something fake…imaginary even.

All I know is what I can see or go back in my mind and take data of. The bad Always out ways the good. 

At least in my mind. 

So how do I find peace in a world I thought God would have blown up by now? 

I don’t. 

This is not a peaceful place. 

What I tend to hold on to is hope. Hope in the little elderly lady that needed help on the bus. When she got an outpouring of help from strangers she smiled and said “thank you.” And I could feel her spirit rejoice. 

Hope in the strangers who pulled two kids from a car sinking in water. They could have been indifferent. They could have placed blame on the parent or parents but instead they chose to be heroes.

For all the people out there trying to survive in a world not made for them who still are helpful and hopeful. Thank you. For all the people dedicating their lives and their sanity to bring joy to others. Thank you. For anyone anywhere that took a moment to be helpful instead of hurtful. Thank you.

For anyone who has ever felt out of place, bullied, talked about,  taken advantaged of, stripped of their rights and just generally let down by this world…Have hope. 

Hope that a better day is coming. That a better way is coming. And even if it doesn’t come for you. Be that for someone else.

I may not be what people are used to but that doesn’t mean I can’t be better than they ever planned. 

Love n light to all y’all because who am I to decide if you deserve it?

Direction 

Standard

As a little girl I heard this song and I did not understand it fully. I just knew that she was right.

Sometimes when the world gets too strange for me I shut it out.

When things happen that make me want to climb back into the darkness..I shut down.

 I then play a little music…

For those of you who like things the way they are. For those of you who are afraid of change or afraid to change.. this song is for you.
For those of you who are ready to do work…well. Let’s do work then…

I do not know the way. I am not the nicest personality. But I am open for suggestions because this way of living couldn’t possibly be it.
