Sunday Meditation

Keep an open mind.  It is hard to do no matter how strong you are.  You plan and plan for things to work out and when things are slow to bloom it is easy to get frustrated or discouraged. So keep an open mind and stay strong!

With all that has happen in the last few weeks and months I can’t help but be grateful.  I think reflecting on the good and the bad helps us understand the flow of our lives. A few months ago when that one thing was too big for you and you look now and see how insignificant it really was. Now next time we can conqure that battle without batting an eyelash.

I fully believe in the power of positive thinking. Perhaps, somewhere deep inside all of us is a tiny connection to everyone else. So in thinking of that, I will ask for positive thoughts and prayers today. I am driving cross country to move to my new job. Most of the way is clear weather but leaving looks rough. So if you all can send me good vibes for a safe trip I would be very appreciative. Lets prove the power of positive intent!

I was in the lunch room and a co-worker randomly mentioned to me that “life is hell.” I asked if it was all parts of life or something specific. I was told it was here at work. It got me thinking. I was thinking about how we perceived our environment and how it affects us. I was going to tell him about focusing on the good but I knew it wouldn’t do any good. This person always complains about how life is so horrible. I agree that our work environment is quite poor and it is, in part, our fault letting it get this bad. However, you can change your situation. You are not a tree. You can move; to another place, situation, or mindset. It is possible. It takes compromises and work but it can be done. I was quite miserable a few months ago but I worked to change the situation. It is some you have to work toward. So if you feel that your life is hell…. Change it!!! You have that ability. It might not be a perfect change and it might not be immediate. Don’t be miserable because you don’t want to make the effort.

You know that cliche saying “Live every day is your last.”  Well that doesn’t mean you might die but only that something might end. I am destined to move in about three weeks and many things are “my last.” My last 4wheeler ride through the swamp, my last Friday Prime Rib and Beer evening out, my last….. So don’t scoff at the idea of “your last” equals death. Keep in mind something might unexpectedly or expectedly end but you will continue.

Acceptance of others and yourself isn’t an easy thing. It is difficult to accept your current place in the world. We all want bigger and better things and quite often we want the things other people have. The hardest part is just been content with what you have at this present moment. To not get caught up in the wants and desires of all those around you. If you can accept yourself it will be easier to move on in life. You might not be where you want to be but for this moment that is ok and work towards your goals. Keep that in mind when you pine after things you don’t have. It will change the way you act towards everyone around you.

In this crazy world that we live in it is so hard to remain humble. It is something I have always struggled with. I know the more humble I stay the better choices I make and the less drama in my life. If I could go back to my younger self that is something I would tell me. Remain humble. If we could all be a little more humble I feel that the world would be a bit brighter.
