PERFECT CONDITION

dog days of summer

Do you always look around for that ‘Perfect Condition’ before you do anything?  Have you ever tried just doing and being without nothing around you? When you wait for the perfect condition, you push away your creativity, your energy and settle for just what comes next.

Sometimes, that once in a lifetime opportunity passes you by in a hurry and you miss the positive energy. What? Miss what? The chance for happiness today.  Your creative energy dips low and lower. You are delaying your life until the future arrives. You are not being honest with yourself. Sometimes we cannot see the happiness around us, because we are waiting for the future.

What’s wrong with NOW? If you do not enjoy the present, or you spoil the present with all these unused opportunities.  You need to dump the negativity and do what “Buster” is doing in the picture. Forget everything, stand in front of a big fan, and let the wind it creates drive the present all around you. Fretting about the past and agonizing about the future is hard work and doesn’t do a thing but offer confusion.

How many times have you picked up the cell, or started to send an email to friends you want to see? But, with the house not straight, or a dust bunny or two under the sofa, you panic. Why? Because you’re not perfect? Be happy with today and with your friends. The future is not going to wait for your happiness. Enjoy today or you will end up destroying both the present and the future.

When we wait for everything to be in its place, the positive energies evade us and we remain sad.  NOPE.  We have great opportunities left to accomplish and we need each other. Friendship is more than looking at perfect conditions, it is enjoying the road we travel to get there with friends and laughter. Things may not be perfect, but the opportunities are unlimited.

 Go stand with Buster and enjoy your day.

HAPPINESS GONE?

Look all around you. What do you see?  Nothing?

Don’t worry, he couldn’t find his either. Now, we will work hard to find happiness for everyone.  Everyone thinks that if you have great success, you will be happy.  Doesn’t work that way. Of course, doing what you like is beneficial to your mind-set and gives you a great boost that can lead to your success. Of course, you have to work toward that goal.

Do you find yourself measuring your life with others’ lives. Do you feel depressed when others get and achieve something?  You always wanted to try that but you never got the nerve to try. Now, ask yourself why and list them down on a sheet of paper.  It seems that the minute you use your own thoughts and pen and paper, things come to mind that you could not share with anyone else. These are your identities and you need to make them an important part of YOU.

Complaining to others and to yourself only gets you in deeper waters. Other people do not want to be around grumpy, obstinate people. Try to take things lightly and give consideration to other people before you jump to quick or too deep and cannot get yourself out the mire.

Do you ever find yourself needing everyone’s attention? Change the self-pity to gratefulness and search yourself for the answers. You might just be surprised at what you find. Others are not our answer to why we can’t find happiness. You are your answer. Check yourself out, you just might find more and more of the other YOU.

 Positive opportunities are out there for everyone. But waiting for the perfect opportunity is not the answer and in the meantime, we push away our happiness and give it to someone else.

Enjoy today, feel the positive energies push you toward new horizons. May you find new peace and personal joy in each day. Keep a smile on your face. Laugh more. Hey, remember those huge belly laughs we used to get?  What’s stopping you now? And, don’t forget to share with your with your friends.

Happy thoughts and keep pushing forward. You’ve already been backward so get ready for a new life. Live in the present and enjoy yourselves.  Make each day count as a new experience and stack them up as lifesavers.

Let me hear some good old-fashioned belly laughs and I’ll share some of mine.  Ready. Set.  Go…HA…HA…HA!!!
