Believe in Yourself!

I am getting so tired of seeing the majority of society walking around all over the place like they are in auto-pilot. Do they realize that they are not even noticed? Do they realize that most people do not even care about what is going on with them? Do they understand that one day, maybe sooner than they suspect, their gig is up? Well, I do not believe so.
I believe a lot of people are just doing what they think they are expected to be doing. You’re a baby doing all the cool baby stuff, you become a toddler and start noticing that everyone is not going goo -goo all over you anymore, then you become a TEENAGER…lookout, and finally an adult. During all those phases in your life, you start to realize that the whole world does not focus solely on you. You begin to develop survival mechanisms that help you stay sane….if you are lucky! I believe, somewhere along the way, we lose our SENSE OF HUMOR and our INDIVIDUALITY.
So, I guess what I am getting at is….DO NOT LOSE YOURSELF.
Don’t be afraid to sing in public or start dancing, when you hear a song you love. Do not be afraid to state your opinion , it counts. Do not be afraid to speak up when you notice something that is not right. Do not be afraid to EXPRESS YOURSELF. I love to express myself through dance. I am not a great dancer, but I ain’t too bad!!! I just love being “different.”
I like to write down, every so often, what I like about myself and what I think I should try to improve on. ( Of course, I never have any in that column.) It helps me stay focused on handling everyday stuff in my life. It is just one of the things that works for me. Try it , if you want.

What Chapter are you on????

I believe there is a room, somewhere other then here on Earth, that has millions and millions of books! I believe we are all the main characters in them. See, you did not know you were famous, did you? Let me explain my crazy statements, ok?
Think about a handful of people you know that are either family members, friends, coworkers, etc. Take a moment to figure out when you last said, :What’s their problem?”
Well, I believe we are all playing out what is in our book and that we are doing our best to coexist with “the others” who are obviously on a different chapter! It has nothing to do with anything going on with you personally, it just is.
If you can follow this, it will help you stay a lot calmer in your dealings with other individuals on a daily basis. Each of us are unique. Each of us are weird. Each of us are just trying to stay alive. We need to focus on ourselves, and not get so involved in the lives of others so that we can expand our own personal growth. I am not saying we should not be empathetic to others. We should always do our best in guiding those that ask for help. We just can not get too involved or we will lose sight of our goals and our plans. Professional help is always available.
So, teach yourself ways to learn to tolerate stressful situations in your life. Take them on a daily basis. When you feel like you are about to have an explosion, just relax, take some deep breaths, and remember we are all on different chapters in our books of life. If you are lucky, maybe a few times a year you might actually be on the same page!!!!!
