A New Year

It is that time once again.  The ending of one year the beginning of another. 

A new year!  A call to action! The opportunities to be better tomorrow and each succeeding day than you are today.  

A chance to break free of the mundane, to refuse to paint in black and white and between the lines but instead wherever your imagination takes you.  To paint your future in the bold strokes and daring colors it was meant to be painted in

A new year is the chance to embrace the truth. The truth that nothing is impossible as long as your faith remains strong and you dare to dream. 

A new year,

A blank canvass,

A new beginning,

Seize it, 

Make it yours

Because after all the future is but what you make it

Positivity trimpuths over Negativity every time

I will not allow negatively to rule my life.  I reject the thoughts of despair and refuse to look at the glass as half empty.  I embrace positivity and the possibilities of a brighter future. I will be thankful for what I do have. I will see the glass as half full and realize my positive attitude will allow me to overfill that glass with happiness. Because:

Negativity represents

Nothingness
Emptiness
Grounded
Abandonment
Troubled
Ignorance
Vexed
Indecisiveness
Torment
Yielding

While positivity represents

Possibilities
Opportunity
Success
Inspiration
Triumph
Intellect
Vision
Imagination
Thinker
Yes I can

Live your life positive and the possibilities are endless

Given a next life I realize faith is my strongest ally

Oracle: But you already know what I’m going to tell you.
Neo: I’m not The One…..
Oracle: Sorry, kid. You got the gift, but it looks like you’re waiting for something…
Neo: What?
Oracle: Your next life maybe, who knows?

About a month and a half ago my heart stopped for what I was told was 30 minutes. Doctors told my family it doesn’t look good, that if I did survive brain damage was likely. Yet I was told the team continued to work to bring me back long past the time they would normally work on someone, thankfully I had that AR always resuscitate order LOL. Less than a week later after being heavily sedated I was awake and alert with no brain damage.  Some hospital workers and the hospital chaplain started calling me miracle man. Since that time I have been in the hospital recovering unable to walk or sit up as my core/trunk muscles had atrophied. Having to rely on others to clean you after going to the bathroom on a bedpan is a humbling experience. Depression began to set in. Then with the help of family and friends I began to realize their was no need to be depressed rather I should celebrate this “next life” that I had been granted.  That I had the gift and was given this new chance to realize my destiny.

“I am a Jedi. I’m one with the Force, and the Force will guide me.”

“For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is.”

“Close your eyes. Feel it. The light…it’s always been there. It will guide you.”

“Now I know there is something strong than fear — far stronger. The Force.”

Having come to the realization that I was given this second chance to realize my destiny I needed to understand how I could actually begin to accomplish it. First I needed to heal myself physically I needed to get stronger.  Thoughts of pumping my body full of pills and simply doing the exercises the therapists were showing me would accomplish this were flawed as my progress was minimal. But then what night I had a breakthrough in my thinking I came to understand that to heal physically and mentally I needed to tap into my belief in myself and my faith in the Lord. As with the fictional Force I understood that the Lord is a powerful ally and has always been there I simply needed to close my eyes, listen closely, feel his healing power and allow him to guide me in my recovery. Once I became one with the Lord I knew nothing would be impossible.

I have subsequently been transferred to a rehabilitation center and each day I close my eyes and call on the Lord to give me the strength to move forward in my rehab to get stronger each day. I visualize that he is wrapping me in a bright white light and that his healing hand is touching my soul, giving me the belief that I have it within me to overcome the physical issues before me that I am able sit up, stand up and walk. As each day goes by I have seen myself gaining strength. I am able to pull myself up, I am able stand I am able to walk.

I am still searching for what my ultimate purpose is. What my “gift” is. Why have I been given this next life. Who knows maybe it as simple as sharing my story of faith and belief to help others find theirs. Whatever it may be I do believe now that in this next life I have been blessed with the Lord is guiding me and with the Lord by my side nothing is impossible.

The mind

The mind is your most powerful asset. The body cannot live without the mind. In times of physical difficulties visualize yourself as you once were. Use your mind to call upon your faith, no matter what it may be, to find the courage and strength to overcome your difficulties. Use your mind to manifest the physical healing of your body. The stronger your mind is the stronger your body will become.

Dreams – The roadmap to greatness

Dreams are the roadmap to greatness. You will never reach your full potential without dreaming of the possibilities that you can aspire to achieve. The power of dreams manifest themselves in a mind set that asks what if, that casts away fears of failure. Dreams set the goals, spur you to action, keep you focused and moving forward. Just imagine a life without dreams, living day to day existing only to exist. No goals to aspire to, no desire to grow, a life defined by the routine safety of the known at the expense of reaching for opportunities in the unknown. Is this really the life you want? Of course not, you want to spread your wings and reach your full potential and the only way to that is to follow your dreams.

The best motivation comes from within

Do not concern yourself with what others have. Do not set your expectations based on the achievements of others. You will never reach your full potential by doing that. You can only reach your full potential through your desire to achieve greatness, to be better today then your were yesterday. Always look inward not outward for your motivation. Looking outward does not fortify your self esteem against failure. Any setback you encounter may deter you from continuing. Look inward and at times of adversity you find the inner strength and desire to be great. These traits will propel you to keep you moving forward until you reach your goal.

You can’t always get what you want – but you may find what you need

The Rolling Stones once sang “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometime you find you get what you need”. These words could not ringer truer in our live. Many times we doubt our ability to reach our full potential. We shy away from “going for it” either thinking we can’t do it, others telling us we can’t do it or simply a matter of fearing we will fail in trying to do it. This results in lost opportunities not only the opportunity of reaching the goal at the end of the journey but the opportunities that inevitably present them along the way. By not even trying we cheat ourselves of the chance to dream big by taking advantage of the possibilities life presents us. Possibilities we may not have known were out there but offer so much potential once we discover them.
