Started out rough but day got better

So we have one of those days and you’re hit first thing in the morning where it brings you down. You feel down and out wondering why do I even try when all I’m going to get is a beating. 

As the day goes on, things get better. The weather is beautiful outside. You’re off work and you sit outside watching the beauty God created. 

Sometimes the smallest thing can turn your day around. 

Taking a moment to enjoy the goodness. Smile 😊

Love Carbonaro Effect

Ok, so who have seen the Carbonaro effect? It’s a hidden camera magic tv show. This show seriously cracks me up. If you need a good laugh or something to lift your spirit, I suggest watching this show. One I love magic and two he’s funny. Third, I love the reactions from the people on his show.

Oh apparently he goes on live tours. Too bad I missed the one for Dallas. Definitely going to keep my eye out for his next tour dates. Seriously, go check his show out. It’s on TruTV. I don’t have cable anymore, but TruTV has scenes from his show on Youtube. So either way, you will be able to watch it.

What I see now and what I’ve seen then.

I need to vent and let out some frustration. What happened to this world or I mean this current time? I see every day people cutting people off on the road, parents picking up their kids and blocking the driveway so the person behind them is stuck, people don’t even know their neighbors, people feel entitled to things, people throwing other people under the bus so they can get ahead, people in a rush, too busy to contact the people they care about, but have all the time in the world to post on FaceBook, etc.

I remember growing up where everyone was kind to one other. People were courteous and genuine. People were always trying to help each other. People actually knew their neighbors back then.

I remember the first home we owned. The neighbor on the right of us always brought home meat they hunted to share with us. The neighbor in front of us would give us eggs from their chickens. The neighbor left of us gave would give us fish. We would share our vegetables we grew from our garden with our neighbors. The neighborhood kids would play together until dark. Parents didn’t worry about the dangers they worry now. It was so natural back then to give and help.

I don’t understand how the world has come to be. People climbing the ladder and the dog eat dog world. I’m not saying the world has gone all bad. There are still good in it. There are still good people, but I see too much of I’m too busy for you. Honestly, if it’s important than time could be made for it. Remember how a smile could make a difference in people’s lives or that saying stop and smell the roses.

I feel like the world needs to slow down. The world is moving so fast, that they are missing out on the little things that matter; little things that can make a huge impact. We still have good in this world and good deeds are being done, but at the same time I see so much negativity. We see more mental health issues or more crimes or more health issues. There are more and more problems and people wonder why.

It seems like it’s become “me me me,” instead of how I can help this person. There’s also a saying about bless are those who bless others. The more you give the more you are blessed. Most of you know that I’m in the helping field so naturally that’s what I want to do.  Ok, I’m done ranting. Just my thoughts.

Changes

Changes are bound to happen. Some changes are good and some may not be good. These changes can be challenging and puts us under a lot of stress. Right now, I am so overwhelmed. I’ll be honest. I do not like change. I do not handle change well, especially when the change is affecting me in a negative way.

It sucks right now. I feel stuck and I have to accept these changes because I don’t have any other choice. It sucks even more when I’ve tried to advocate myself and I get shut down. Yes, I can’t do anything about the current change. However, I do have a choice to do something different. I have a choice to make other changes in my life that will impact my life in a positive manner.

Yes, my current circumstance may not be ideal, but I can change that. Maybe not immediately, but I can make changes one step at a time. I think it’s normal to feel overwhelmed and frustrated, but it’s the matter of my actions to bring in positivity in my life. I want to stay positive and keep pushing forward. I know I can do this even if I don’t feel like I can right now. I am fully capable of doing anything if I believe in myself.
