Relationships & Life
So as soon as I was graced to see Vibrams there was no doubt I knew they were meant for me. I have always been the girl to wear the socks where each toe is separated; I thought they were cute, and comfortable. I LOVE socks period, and am more enthralled with colors, so the world of Vibrams was a perfect creation for me. For those of you that are not aware of the new style of shoes/socks in my life, Vibrams are an innovative approach to taking the benefits of sneakers, and the comfort of socks and literally placing both of them into one. I'm flat footed so finding the best shoe to run in has been a challenge for me. These shoes really force you to walk properly. Rather than placing all of your weight on your heel causing more shock to your foot, joints, and don't forget, your back, you are able to walk evenly, and prevent the body pains we all desperately try to avoid. I run, go to the gym, swim, and walk around casually in my handy dandy Vibrams. Not too many people love the appearance although I do, but to each its own. There are a variety of colors, and the comfort of free feet awaiting your attention. Try them!
I received some unfair information today. It really gave me a small emotional breakdown. How many times have you heard the saying, "Bad things happen to good people?" I'm not going to say I didn't deserve having this happen to me, because the truth is most people do not deserve the things that are happening to their lives. What I will say, I am choosing to deal with the experience from a different standpoint. I am in a place to fight for not just myself, but for others. Sometimes things happen for reasons beyond you. It may not make sense to you at the moment, but once you fight through the tears and get it, your perception may shift. This is an opportunity to use my voice, and to fight for the rights of those that are not granted the rights that everyone else should get. Nothing is really meant to be unfair. What I know within my heart is...things will continue to be unfair until we stand up and say, and do something about it. Always in the way your best skills will be utilized.
My analytical mind rarely settles into silence. It is forever in an ongoing process of thoughts, worries, and uncontrollable concerns. I get so annoyed. Sometimes I just want to be free from the questions, and brick walls of no answers. I am in a state of being a bit overwhelmed. I know it will get better, but I have so many things going through this mind of mine. I appreciate it all. Some people are unable to even think, so I will continue to accept my thoughts and ready for them to calm down at some point very soon.
I know this is a remake, but I love her voice.
Wanting to be heard desperately and to be understood is what we all want whether we admit, address it, or accept it. The fact is our beings have an inner desire to be heard, and for what we are speaking, and releasing to be accepted, validated and warranted to make the appropriate action. Dissatisfaction erupts when you feel you are not being listened to or acknowledged. If it is someone that is important to you that is ignoring or not giving you the understanding needed for you to be the person you have a desire to be...resentment occurs. Sadly, this could all be avoided if people were listening to you, and most importantly, the people that are significant in your life. I know I am in a stage of dislike for someone that has not CHOSEN to listen to me. I love them. At some point I will no longer allow them to cause me the emotion of resentment and dislike. I will soon move on fully, then they will notice, "Oh I should have listened." At that point, I know for sure, it will be too late.
I'm at my breaking point...
I still love you all though!
I rarely watch the news simply because it serves a purpose of broadcasting mostly negativity, in my opinion. I am watching the new series Scandal, and the preview for the nightly news comes on displaying images about a plane's engine being damaged because of a bird, and another story about a car crashing into a local hair supply store injuring one of the employees. The craziness continues. These two clips are just the beginning. I would rather just watch what gives me motivation, encouragement, and makes me feel all fuzzy inside. :) There is not much on television with that criteria, but when I view it, I sure am happier for it. We have to join forces and attempt to change what television broadcasts, especially on basic networks.
Love always and continue to think positive even when it is difficult to do so,
Have you ever been in love with someone, but you know within yourself you are not meant to be? Have you ever wanted someone so bad, but they did not want you the same way? Or maybe you wanted them, they didn't, time passes, you forget about being with them, then they return to your life only wanting to be with you desperately. Most of us have been in this type of situation and it causes some pain that is indescribable to say the least. There is always a force flooring you to be with the person, to fight for them even when you may not want to anymore. It is your soul most times that causes you to want to move towards them even though the pain can be so strong. It is the energy of what could be that makes you want to continue to try. The truth is, we all create an image in our mind. I've had loves in my life that are still apart of me. I've been in the situation in which I want them so badly, my whole body, and mind moves to them, but my soul, my heart keeps saying no. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between all your emotions and feelings, but you cannot deny what you know to be true for you. If you have to question anything, it is most likely not meant to be. Be sure in your decisions in love. Geez, I surely do love, love. Even through all the pain. To those that know...and to those that do not know for sure. This is me telling you now...I love you and miss you.
It is about time a television show opens your world to a new perspective of what your soul feels. I was thrilled while watching Touch on FOX. I remember driving down Chicago streets seeing a billboard of squared images showing the premiere date of the series. I remember seeing the promotional preview commercials for the hopefully highly anticipated series premier and being eager to see it in its entirety. Although I was excited to watch it, I did not expect for it to be such a revelatory experience for me. The first episode I viewed ON Demand, courtesy of Comcast proved as a moving account of who I am, my own connections to the world and individuals and it gave me a reminder of how important every living being is to the world. Touch shows that having a voice does not necessarily mean speaking out loud. There are other means of communication. In the series a young boy, son of Kiefer Sutherland, has a gift of seeing the future through numbers. From birth, the young boy has never spoken, but the numbers he writes have connections to people across the world. His father, Kiefer Sutherland becomes the boys voice. It becomes his purpose and really his passion to be his son's mode of communication to the outside world. He is the messenger to prevent the negative from occurring. Keifer's son sees the world through numbers, but it his duty to interpret, then act on the messages to ensure good will is done. Graciously, Touch is a moving experience that relates everyone's life to one another. We need one another. Our lives intertwine to create such a powerful force of energy to encourage a message of pure connection...TOUCH. Our lives touch when we least expect it. For that reason, I appreciate you more than you could ever know. Thank you for your existence!
I remember having a deep conversation with a friend over a burger. We were discussing the world, and how people live so robotically. As I argued the fact that so many are so unsure, and making the wrong decisions based on what is so untrue to their spirits. He then said, "Ignorance is bliss..."
Is ignorance really bliss? Is it okay to live a life that does not reach your highest potential??? As you make the wrong decisions, most likely for selfish reasons, others are affected. The universe shifts to accommodate the changes that were not expected. We have an incredible responsibility to one another.... WE ARE HERE TO CHOOSE LOVE. Love is GOD, Love is whatever is right, love is what is sometimes complicated, but it is the truth. It is what gives, shows, opens, and is real. It is everything we live for. It is the driving force of human spirits. It is the energy that the entire universe is made from. When we choose against love, we choose what is not healthy. When one makes the wrong decision, we all suffer. Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, the truth is, the karmic activity will soon be at your footsteps as well.
Struggling to continue, to see and to keep fighting, it is what I am here for. To show love, be love, and propel love.
If only you knew...it is not easy all the time...
LOVE YOU GREATLY!!!!
