Let’s Be Better Humans

If there’s an ‘after’- great, we’ll🌟Rock On🌟in a new better place. If there’s nothing, then there’s nothing & we won’t know so f*ck it.

Let’s not waste time arguing who’s right. Live every day like you’re the King or Queen of your own castle & treasure yourself, every moment, every person.

YOU 💖 are a gift to the world. You have so much to give & you can tap into that endless well – it resides inside you. Become aware of its’ existence, & you’ll access it as you start to develop your self-awareness, with self-reflection🙋‍♀️ Start with meditation, yoga, gardening or painting & learn to relax & breathe.

Stop putting yourself down – observe your self talk, & gently remind yourself .. it’s just a matter of retraining your mind into positivity. I used to be the hardest person on myself & then I became my own best friend.

We don’t say “I can’t”

We say “I presently struggle with.”

(Tony Horton-p90x)
You may very well be unknowingly self-sabotaging yourself. So many people still don’t realize how much power their thoughts have, at all. It’s time to start paying attention. Grab the reins of your life & holler a big ol’ giddy up, vamos!

🔥 I wanna light a fire under your ass 🔥

It’s all about the way you look at things & what you tell yourself – about the world, about yourself .. everything. I cannot stress enough the incredible importance of that.

How about a little anecdote as an example? 🎊Meet Mary & Jim:

Jim was transferred to another state for work & they were invited for happy hour drinks that first Friday by a few colleagues & his boss to get acquainted. Mary – although she’s a little shy & a bit out of her comfort zone – agreed.

At home that afternoon, Jim opened a bottle of wine, put on some happy jazz, & whistled while he prepared for the evening. He was excited for this new chapter & he was going all-in – no stress, no worries, no expectations. Jim’s always been a carefree man & knows it’s all good 🙂

Taking “it” as “it” comes, allowing “it” to be whatever “it” is rather than what he imagined, hoped or feared it would be.

We don’t react – we respond.

Respond

Mary on the other hand, had low self-esteem & was often in doubt; told herself she “probably can’t” so ‘why even try.’ As she tried her best to get into a chipper mood, nervous about meeting other, new women, swatted away negative thoughts, coming at her, like flies to a forgotten picnic food plate in the park on a scorching July aft.

  • they won’t like me
  • they’ll find me boring
  • what if they ignore me
  • what if ….. gorgeous
  • …. rich
  • …. thin
  • & all else that is “better” than you
  • what if she’s a real bitch
  • Etc.

Mary, with her Rolodex of preconceived notions, her premature negative view; due to a lack of believing in herself & that she is enough – she forges head.

She meets the ladies – already having decided how & who they were before ever even seeing them. Never giving them a chance to maybe (probably?) prove otherwise. Therefore never ever seeing them as they truly are.

You can be in a room with someone, chatting away, but (imo) if they aren’t on the road to awakening & working on becoming their most authentic selves, they won’t/don’t see you for who YOU are. They can only see what THEY are.

Make sense?

Remember the movie ‘PS I Love You?’ When we realized we waste time on stupid, small stuff we weren’t supposed to sweat, & completely irrelevant compared to somebody we love?

That if we had a second chance we would never take anyone for granted & always appreciate every moment we were lucky enough to spend in their company?

We have to remember stuff like that when we’re fighting over nonsense like straws or the last nikes or iphone on black friday as people literally trample each other to death – for a thing.

We have lost our way as human beings.

So many have lost their way cuz they’ve been led astray. It’s up to the awake to guide them – kindly & with much empathy.

It took me a long time to realize & learn that it is hurt people that hurt people, we must be kinder to the lost the confused & the misguided.

I think of people like John Lennon who lost their lives trying to get us all to peace & to love each other 💖 They can’t silence all of us – don’t let them silence any more of us.
