Foolish and Courageous

If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid. -Epictetus 

You have no idea that you are capable of so much more…Have the courage to do something different – adapt and change! Be fearless, In whatever it is that you want to do.   Step up and  step out – be noticed – try new things, and expect more.

If you don’t try – you will never know!

Just a thought!

Strength in Change

When major changes in your life happens, even when the change is to improve your life, it can make you feel unsettled and distressed. So when life forces you to change and you think the change is catastrophic, it can seem debilitating, but it’s really what makes us stronger.

”If an egg is broken from an outside force – life ends. If broken from the inside force – life begins. Great things always begin from the inside.” (unknown)

Remember our strength comes from the inside. We are defeated or winners before we begin. It’s what we believe, and what we think that makes it so. Pay attention to what you say/think to yourself, and out loud. If you think you’re defeated, then you will never take steps to succeed. Focus only on the remarkable outcomes that can occur. This is your inside work. This is your focus – the knowing that all things are somehow working in your favor – grow stronger.

Just a thought…

I feel foolish and stupid most of the time…I am not sure why I am not content with accepting my life as it is, but I am working on it.  I realize now that I have to take a step back and let things unfold as I go, knowing that I do not see the whole picture, and that I can not control everything or really anything but myself.  I am however a champion at seeing what can be, and I am great at taking steps in the direction that I want to go.  Sometimes I achieve and sometime I don’t, but I keep on trying…creating new and different dreams.  My creations were always about making a living. Such as I can do this because it will produce an income stream that will support my family. To…they said I could not do it, so now I have too.  To…this will help my friends, and we will have fun along the way.  Some of my decisions were brilliantly foolish and stupid, and others were just foolish and stupid!

This is the first time that I have thought about what I want my life to look like?  What do I think a perfect life looks like?  …and, will I allow myself to have a perfect life? It has been a struggle.  Some days are easy, because it is what I want to do, and other days are hard because I am still living in my former life, and it seems to take time with obligations, some of which you want to see through, and others that you would just like to pull the band aid and have it over with.  At what point do you stop with the old and completely move on with the new?  Is it a pulling apart that just takes ease and patience, pulling slowly and gently as you are moving over the delicate areas?

I guess that is it.  Are lives are so intwine with so many others, that unless you do not care where anyone else lands that is associated with you, or of the consequences, that it is going to take time. We will have to keep adapting, evolving, and improving along the way. Going with the flow, but always with the goal in mind, knowing that we will get there!

Just a thought!
