Hate and Love it

Standard

I’m sitting here trying to get my nerves up to go on this trip to Arizona. Im planning on driving the whole way. I have the worst case of bubbles right now. Seriously I’m silently freaking the f**ck out. I’m not the best driver and having no cell phone right now isn’t the smartest way to go. I’m using a gps and I hope it’s up to date, because gps systems can send you to some very scary and weird places. I’m speaking from experience. Considering the fact that I’m confused with most directions away.

  
I normally leave the distance driving to others. 

Is it wrong to secretly hope there’s another option? Like for real. I’m sure that most people don’t mind long rode trips and things that take time. But the people who love me know that I’m not like that. I’d rather fly and I like to go Ricky Bobby fast. I read all signs like this:

  Today I’m in love with the idea of the journey. I’m excited to see if I can push myself to get there. If I’m able to handle whatever life throws my way. If I can get everything done. 

  
I hate the fact that I’m not sure of what it is next. I constantly feel like I’m grasping at straws. Just looking for a stable environment. Just hoping that something actually comes out good with no hiccups or confusion. 

This year has been a lot of firsts. A lot of changes have been made. All while I’m trying to stay positive and focus on the good. The truth is life isn’t always easy. Sometimes it’s hard to save yourself let alone anyone else and I have children to be there for. Good or bad I HAVE to figure it out. 

Please send me your prayers. Positivity and blessings. I’ll be blogging about Love for the month of February. This way I’ll look for it all month long. 

Today I’m in love with the ideal of heading to Arizona. Wish me luck because I’m gonna need it.

It brought me through 

Standard
It brought me through 

Life gives up and downs. From the moment breath enters a body the story begins. All reality starts and the things that are being taught become fact over fiction. 

I was brought up hard.

Moved from the inner city of Kansas City Missouri to the stomping grounds of Omaha. I made my journey into adulthood.

  
Well rounded in religious beliefs. Sidetracked by hard knocks. Family struggles and the building blocks of life with strife as a banner. 

It challenged me to become more.

  
I love that my life took me to low places. Deep dark spaces. If it wasn’t for those experiences I would not acknowledge the light that I see. I wouldn’t be able to fully appreciate those who have helped me along the way. 

  
I love the way life picks out how things go. Then gives me the tools to decide for myself parts of the path that I want to take.

My attitude of gratitude has not come easy. I’m grateful that I have found it. I hope that I will forever keep it. 

Day 24 of grateful January. The question is what challenge are you grateful for? I love to hear your stories about life and your insight into the world. Feel free to leave a comment.

The paint brush of life

Standard
The paint brush of life

Painted fingers dipped in water colors spreading across the paper expressing child like memories of a naive mind.

  
Art is the hands expression of words. It gives hope to the hopeless. Beauty in places that no one else thought were beautiful. It brings smiles on faces and love in hearts. 

An artist is a creator of visual magnificent works. Images that remind me to indulge in the landscape of this universe. 

As a mother and educator I love giving children experiences in creativity. It pushes their minds to explore different ways of thinking. 

  
I use art for my comfort. I use art to help me expand my words and bring pictures to my train of thought. I simply enjoy art and artist. I loved art classes even though I’m not the greatest artist out here lol. 

I find myself browsing Pinterest for creative visual art. I’m fascinated by the powerful spirits that let their light shine through paintbrushes and pencils. 

  
Day 18 of grateful January and today’s question is what piece of art are you grateful for. I actually have a few that stand out but my most favorite artist have been my tribe of children.

The power of knowledge 

Standard

Energy moves. The brain is transmitting information constantly. Even though it doesn’t seem like it is. 

  
Thoughts are gold. Thoughts are some of the most priceless things that we own. They create the past, present, and future. I imagine a world where the earth is coming together for the greater good of the next generation. 

Example of this is the great leaders of the past. They each envisioned a world that they wanted to live it. They were taking experiences of the past and working actively on making the present day become it. Which changed the way that the past was. Started to change the present and in turn made a better future. 

Knowing that any knowledge that I gain today makes me equipped with better understanding of what I aim to make my future is exciting. I can be anything that I want to be. I can change my outlook on life thus changing my life into my destiny. 

  
I asked for rainbows back in April. I see rainbows all the time now. I asked for butterflies and pretty flowers. I start noticing them more. It wasn’t that they weren’t there it’s just that I wasn’t looking for them in that way. 

By changing my expectations of how, why and where. I believed that they would show up and they do. 

I’m grateful for the knowledge that if I believe in something enough that I will find myself open to receiving it. I’m just like anyone else. Sometimes I limit myself. I put things on the back burner while I figure out if that’s really what I want. 

  
The beautiful thing about time is that it actually does wait. Yet it keeps moving. Being stuck in the past is fine if you’re a fan of history repeating itself. Living only for right now is fine if you don’t plan to go any further. Chasing the future is great if you’re willing to miss out on the present. I’m just trying to enjoy it all. Allowing it all to shape me and mold me as I in live this lifetime.

My thoughts are powerful. They are needed, but thy aren’t enough to sustain me. I need it all. I need thoughts and actions. I need feelings and emotions. I need a higher consciousness and access to my egotistical ways. I’m perfectly imperfect and I’m grateful for the knowledge of that. This way I can be open to change. 

Day 17 of grateful January and the question is what knowledge are you grateful for?

The importance of this vessel 

Standard

They say the body is a temple. If focused on the betterment of my health I would assume that it could be called that. 

I also would suppose that if not handled with care it could also be a tomb. 

I’m grateful for the vessel. For this body in all of its splendid splendor. For the legs that move me. The organs that keep me alive. The arms that are used for hugging and the hands that are the pencils of my mind. 

  
Physical attributes are little special pieces of DNA coded by our family history. I love the ones that remind me of each parent and grandparent. 

My gratitude is formed when I do each yoga stretch and when I take each steps toward a new life. 

  
Happiness is taking time to enjoy my body with all its kinks and quirks. 

Day 16 of grateful January and the question is what about your body are you grateful for?

From my brain to my toes I love my body. I’m grateful for all the blessings it has given me. I’m grateful that it still pushes pass limits and provides me with my best assets. My heart and soul. 

Today I ask you to express gratitude for your vessel even with its limitations it is a gift and a joy.

So very grateful for today 

Standard

Thankful Thursday. I’m having happy thoughts about holidays that have passed. My oldest memories of holidays start before I was seven. When I was young enough to trick or treat and get new Christmas toys.

I love holidays and how they make me feel. They give me hope when times are down and laughter when times together brings me peace. I think holidays were made just to bring a break to the everyday world. 

  
A little of the universe’s magic into our minds and hearts. Today I’m grateful for the winter holidays as a whole. The season is just filled with joys and new beginnings. 

  
As we enter this season of love. I have to admit that my heart is opening up and embracing everything that love can bring. 

  
January is a month that I’m dedicating to my attitude of gratitude. Today’s question is what holiday are you grateful for. Day 11 and my mind is on hope,growth,change and love.

Chakra of my life 

Standard

2 something in the am and meditative heart music humming in my ears.

I am calm. 

Finally.

In a chaotic world where mood swings and bullsh*t corner the market I continuously have to find my zen.

I’m not sure where I belong I just know that I’m focused on forward movement. Slow. Steady. Movement. Not too much not too little, just enough to put my mind at ease to deal with anything other than my inner peace.

I value my peace for than anything in this life. 

  
I’m thankful for another day. I’m thankful for the people close to me. I’m grateful for the grace and mercy that I receive from above. 

Blue also known as Azul is the color of my dominant chakra. Creativity is my gratitude color. I’ve always been in love with the color blue. For me it symbolizes triumph. It symbolizes my mood when I’m down. It even symbolizes the way I express my thoughts. Blue is beautiful. The color of clear water in the mist of a wave. The color of morning dew in a glistening haze. The color of hope for things unforeseen. 

I return to gratitude everyday. No matter what mess or annoyance has happened in the past tense. I purposely focus my intentions on gratitude for the things that bring me out of a negative headspace.

  
If all I can do in this life is express how small I am and how incredibly big this universe and celestial divine energy is then here I am screaming out from inside my soul. I am nothing but a source of gratitude. A sign pointing upward. A roadmap away from confusion and into a space of silence. 

Today I am grateful for this life and my favorite color….blue.
