Mark Your Footprints

“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by “I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.”

Mother Teresa

I have been having these amazing conversations with a good friend of mine, and things like this quote have been the base of our discussions. I HAVE LOVED IT, but the rest of my life seems to be passing me by.

Truth is, I have been in this little bubble and I can’t get myself to get out of it. On the other hand, I have been in and out of this different piece of mind where I LOVE thinking philosophically, psychological and sociologically. These moments are my highest Euphoria, and I want to stay there.

Life is what you make it. Life is what you chose to do with it. You can waste it by talking about USELESS topics, or you can discuss topics that MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

What person do you want to be? Of course many of you will say the Influential person… But let me ask you this: What are you doing about it? Will you wake up tomorrow and do the exact same *BS*? Yes Bullshit. It is repetitive Bullshit that make no difference in your life or anyone else.  I have to admit, I am sick and tired of this Bullshit. Talking about NOTHINGNESS, things that make no impact, things that will not make me a better person. I am sick, and I am tired. This life, we have only One Chance at it. I don’t want to wake up tomorrow and be told by a doctor that this is it, This is your life, and I have done NOTHING. I want to change the world, one minute at a time, and I CAN, and I WILL.

So here is my rant, now lets talk reality. Who do you surround yourself with? Who are your friends, your colleagues, your family? Who do you share inspirational conversations with? Do you discuss Change? Do you discuss Happiness? Do you talk about how to become a Better Person? Better yet, does anyone talk to you about what makes you a Worst Person? Do you have that someone that wakes you up when you are so stuck in your own BS? If you can’t think of someone, than you are hanging out with the wrong people. Everyone needs a reality check, everyone needs a Wake up Call. I have that, but sadly I get sucked into uselessness sometimes, I am human, it’s normal. But the real test is if you GET YOURSELF OUT.

So, important Reality is: Who your Friends Are is who You Are. If your friends don’t Change you, They are not a good friend). If you find yourself talking about NOTHINGNESS, find someone who makes you talk CHANGE, talk POSITIVISM, talk INTELLIGENCE.

I have been lost, I can admit it, but I am tired of being lost. I need change, I need Thought, I need conversation, I need happiness…. I am seeking. Are you?

Make the change today. Find the right friends and keep them. Spend more time with them, because if they make you think, you are getting closer to happiness, because being happy is being fulfilled. Fulfillment is MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL.

Focus on what is important, not what you will never take with you when you are gone. Reaching success is one thing, but if you make nothing of that success then WHAT HAVE YOU ACCOMPLISHED? Have you REALLY changed this world? Or have you changed YOUR reality?

Boasting, Arrogance, Greet, Egocentricity, these are NOT SUCCESS, these are PURE REPUGNANCE. Embrace the blessings you have been given, GIVE, HELP, SAVE, CONSIDER others. Life is about MAKING A DIFFERENCE, and I am not talking about YOUR LIFE, I am talking about that homeless woman asking you for money, but giving her gloves instead because you notice she is shaking. THINK, TAKE NOTICE, BE SOMEONE!!!!!!!!!!! FEEL more what you SEE, TAKE THE TIME TO CARE.

Consider this scenario: You are walking down the street with your warm coat, warm gloves, warm tuque and you get stopped by a homeless person simply begging you for money, begging you for SOMETHING. But you are late for work, rushing around, as you usually are, everyone is always rushing. Never do we take a moment to simply appreciate the air we are breathing, because some do not have clear air. Never do we take the time to be grateful for the water we drink, because some do not have clean water. Never do we appreciate the time we have because some cannot rest as they must feed their children and can’t keep up. Back to the scenario, you are walking down the street, you either throw a loonie at them, or simply ignore them because you are on your phone, on your Facebook, or simply texting someone that is NOT THERE. This poor woman, child, man… they have been denied love, ignored, denied a smile that may brighten their day, a difference can be that simple. What would happen if you walked down the street, saw a homeless person and decided to Stop, take a minute to ask them how their day is going, if they would like something to eat instead of money, if you can grab them a coffee, or event buy them gloves, a tuque, a scarf., anything to make their life easier, as they don’t have it easy… but you do… or have it easier. How does this sound in your busy life now?

This is an extremely passionate topic for me, SO I tell you…

WAKE UP!

SEEK!

REACT!

LOVE!

GROW!

FIND YOURSELF!

I have hit rock bottom, because I CARE. No one knows what you go through, so find your own Happiness, in what you need. I need Personal Growth;

What Do You Need? Who Do You Want to BE?

SO BE!

Something New?

5 Ways To Tell If You Need A Career Change, what a great article today.
A friend of mine inspired me to write this, she has been struck with a life decision that can change her whole entire life, but you know what, there is nothing wrong with being scared, it makes you human. Happiness, it is a big factor in your wellness and in your health, and you must always put that first.We have all been through troubled times where we doubt, we question, we need better answers….Do you need a career change? Are you happy with what you are doing? Are you depleted and over it?

I’m 36 and work in a mid-level corporate role.  I know I don’t like my work (and haven’t liked it for more than 5 years or so), and things are not going great at the company, but it pays very well, has good benefits and there are some things that are OK about it (mostly that it pays a regular paycheck that feels “secure”).  I was promoted recently too, but still I agonize daily whether I should change careers or just leave it alone and stick with it.  How can you tell if you should change careers or not? 

Should I stay or should I quit?
Here are five ways to tell if you NEED something new.
1. You are chronically worn out, exhausted and depleted: if you get home and your body is broken down and cannot think of doing anything else, you have depleted yourself to the point of exhaustion.
Your body tells you what your lips cannot.
2. Your skills, responsibilities, and tasks are not you at all: Do you care about what you are doing? Is it YOU? Do you have what you do, find it useless or worthless? Do you see yourself wanting to make a bigger difference? You may really be in the wrong field.
3. You’ve come to the point where your salary no longer makes up for the boredom and emptiness you feel: The money can make you *happy* for so long, but are you over it? Is material no longer satisfying you? Sometimes, making less money can make you much happier than making more, and you need to make that decision. Is the money keeping you stuck in your position?
Hang on here – I have this money, but I hate how I spend my life making it.
4. Despite all the “right” choices you made in your career, the outcome feels very wrong:  You have worked so hard to be where you are, but you HATE where you landed. Yes, that is so possible and you know, you need to be brave enough to acknowledge that. you need to know when what you believed was for you, is NOT YOU AT ALL, and that is totally fine. Life is not always what we seem it to be, and this is what life is all about, change, new, experience, learning.
5. You have the irrepressible feeling that your talents and abilities could/should be used in a totally different (more creative and impactful) way: If you are thinking, there is more to life than what you are doing, then there very much may be. Listen to your gut, don’t lie to yourself.
There’s another way to live and work, even though you can’t see it yet.
So, you have been given a quick glimpse of reality. Life, career, happiness, they all need to intertwine, you cannot be happy if you hate what you do 8 or more hours of your day. If you feel this article has given you an eye opener then maybe you needed one. Wake up, Make a Change. Life is too short to live it on a candle waiting to be burned out. You need fire, you need happiness, you need a good life, you only get it once.
I hope you have found yourself a little more today. Have a great Sunday!

Michael Jackson… JUST LISTEN!

This may seem like an odd post and may not seem relative to this Blog, however I found this to be an ESSENTIAL topic that I want to share with all of you.  Throughout his life, Michael has always tried to inspire us to make a difference and become better people. The following video demonstrates many of Michael’s speeches attempting to inspire us. Michael’s words have always been taken for granted, all his songs, and everything that he represents. Michael has been spreading the message for all of us throughout his whole life, teaching us to be better people, teaching us to appreciate life, and to always SMILE, no matter the pain. If you feel that your life is falling apart, take a moment and watch some of the following music videos of Michael Jackson and keep in mind that life is too short and it is important to always appreciate every moment; do not take your life on this earth for granted because you might not have one tomorrow. A special person in my life has taught me that, and though I am still working on it, I wish to teach all of you: BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE, DON’T UNDERVALUE YOUR LIFE ON THIS EARTH, YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE ANOTHER ONE.

Michael has been an inspiration to many, let’s make sure that his messages are taken seriously because THEY MATTER in our Lives!

Enjoy your life, SMILE every moment you get, LOVE everyone, CHANGE to the better, Don’t hold anger or grudges. MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

LISTEN TO THE LYRICS PLEASE!!!!
