Be Prepared…..

Before we start going on with this topic first i’d like to give it a bit of light by saying that this title, is also a song title, from one of my favorite movies the Lion King, I wrote it out and thought of the song because yeah I just did!!

Now this may get serious, but it may not, i’m not really sure how i’m expecting this post to go and maybe I don’t need to, so i’m just going to let it flow out how it’s wanting to……they say it’s important to be prepared always, yet at times there are moments that even when you think you’re prepared, there’s always a chance something’s going to end up catching you off guard……no matter how many times you may do your best to make sure

You’re not missing something, a lot of those times you may because you can’t be prepared for everything, sometimes a lot of the things that happen, comes from it being unexpected and yeah not knowing what to expect can get stressful and there’s going to be moments where you may get frustrated or angry even, but when we start to feel those emotions……we have to keep in mind that it’s not going to always be something we can control.

Things happen and sometimes even when you’re prepared, it doesn’t mean that you’re always going to be fully prepared, prepared……maybe that doesn’t make much sense…..but what i’m trying to get at is……even when things seems to be a little out of control……be prepared for the moments that you’re not prepared for, it’s like that saying expect the unexpected….

A lot of the time we don’t know a lot that is going to happen, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t always suit up for it in the best way possible, we may not know what’s to come, but we have to believe that whatever it is, it’ll be good in someway and who knows it may just be the very thing that we’ve been looking for without realizing or most likely something we didn’t see coming that we didn’t even think about in the first place!!

When we least expect it, we will soon find or come across something that might just be hard to explain at this moment, but will soon make much more sense to where we know and feel it to be just that thing that we needed……it’s all about patience and trusting the process that whatever is coming, we may not always be entirely prepared, but for the most part we’re still prepared in a way, though there’s times we don’t always expect it.

On To A New Decade…..

So we have officially entered the year 2020 and we’re already on the 3rd day of the month of January, i’d say crazy, but I mean we all know that days go by pretty quickly, it’s only where we hit a week or two where we can then say crazy!! Happy New Year by the way, you’d think i’d say that first, but nope not all all, I wouldn’t have forgotten it though…..maybe.

Anyway I don’t know about you guys, but it’s still pretty surreal to me that we are within a new decade, it still weird because I still expect it to be 2019, but I know we are no longer around that area of the teen’s and that’s odd, by the way has anyone else written down 2019 by accident even though it’s 2020 now, because I did almost, I still sometimes go to write it,

but then realize “oh yeah 2019 is over, it’s 2020 now” I think some of us still need time to let it sink in and if not everyone then just me…..I thought about writing the day of new years, but I wanted to give it a bit of time before I actually wrote my thoughts out on how it feels and all that jazz, it feels different, but also not, but also yes….does that make sense!? Let’s hope so.

Now most people will tell you that they probably have this whole year planned out, I on the other hand can’t tell you that, I mean who knows what this year has in store, a lot of unexpected things could happened in a way that is well…..unexpected, but i’m keeping my hopes that all those unexpected things that are to come with this year will be good and only good, do I know what those unexpected things are!? No I do not….

but you can only wish for the best and trust that everything will align in the way it’s meant to come together, you thought I was going to say align again right!? i’m not that predicable…..most of the time haha…..no, but seriously stressing about what’s going to happen and how it’s going to happen or when, will only leave you to stress more which will leave you to become frustrated and even though we may feel frustrated, getting worked up because we’re frustrated and don’t know how everything will go

Isn’t worth the stress, you have to trust and let it go for the moment, once you do that, you’ll soon find that everything falls where it’s meant to, but only if you let it, this is something i’m having to remind myself about and that I try to keep in mind, it’s hard, it’s not easy, but you find when you let things be and not add so much focus to it, it does work out,

So i’m not sure how this year will turn out, I mean it’s just started you know……but whatever happens and comes about, I have to trust that it’s going to be good and that things will work out and be A Okay!!

SO, how’s all of your 2020’s going so far!?

Go With The Flow But Also Know That Having A Plan Is Important Too…..

Going with the flow of things is good, because it lets you explore a lot of different things around you and helps you discover a little bit more about yourself, without really having to feel like you need to already know who you are, you can just discover it along the way, however once you do find out certain things about yourself and everything around you, eventually you’re gonna have to also come up with some sorta plan on what is you want out of life based off the things you’ve discovered, now don’t go freaking out about not having a plan for everything, you don’t really need a plan for everything, just certain things you want to accomplish in your life. You see when you have a plan, you also give yourself a chance to create a new goal in your day to day life and once you achieve that goal, you then feel good and want to see what other goals you can achieve, it’s kinda like having a new years resolution only you know with this one, you’ll actually go through with it, we all know that new years resolutions don’t really do us any good because it’s just something we tell ourselves we’re gonna do and then once the new year arrives we forget it and just continue to go about our day and everyday we get once it’s a new year.

When you have a plan on something it helps you stay productive and helps you build towards the goals your trying to get to, it’s okay if your goals aren’t super big, goals don’t have to be really big, sometimes starting off small works in wonders and once you complete that small goal, you’ll then want to strive for something bigger than that first  goal you made for yourself, for example: Say your goal is to buy a new guitar and piano, but you know that you only have enough to get one or the other, but you really want to buy them in a set, in order to get both you’ll need the right amount to get both the guitar and piano, so what do you do!? do you go and buy the guitar first and come back for the piano when you have enough money or do you just not bother because you can’t get them both at the same time!? I would hope that 1. what I just said made sense and 2. that you just ended up getting either the guitar or piano instead of getting upset that you weren’t able to get them both at the same time.

Sometimes the goals we have aren’t always reachable at first and we have to work hard to get to those goals that we are trying to reach for, so even if you weren’t able to get both the guitar and or piano, at least you were able to get 1 of them so you should be happy that one of your goals was met, say you bought the piano first, now you can add next goal: buy a guitar and work towards getting that wonderful guitar you have your eyes on. In the mean time while you’re working towards getting that new guitar, you can practice the piano and once you feel like you have it down alright, soon you’ll realize that all your hard work payed off and now you have another goal to strive for and that’s master the guitar next. You see what i’m talking about!? Once you finish a goal, you’ll keep wanting to add more and then once that goal is completed, you’ll want to add another and another and so on………putting down a goal and then completing it after a while, really helps you achieve things on your day to day life and it’ll make you want to take on other goals you have in mind.

Think of a goal as present……..that your unable to open until you finish that said goal that you put down. We all know you want that present and you’re now wondering, but wait what’s in that said present!? I don’t know………or maybe I do and i’m not gonna tell you because then it’ll ruin the surprise that your goal wants you to have. Now you’re gonna turn your focus on that said goal just so you’re able to find out what’s in store for you once you reach and complete your goal and that was the plan, to makes sure that if you want to know what’s inside of that said present, you gotta first complete a goal you have going, that is when you will receive the surprise waiting for you to open. Having plans and creating goals for that plan shouldn’t be something to be discouraged from if it feels like it’s unreachable, sure you may not be able to get there right away, but you know that if you were to work hard and keep trying to reach all the goals that you created in order to get there, eventually you will.

Now be aware that you’re not always going to be able to reach every goal you have written down on a list, some will work and some won’t, but it’s okay if not all of your goals are met, they’re not mean’t to all be met, some are just there for ideas or just to kinda fill your goal list, so it’s not just one thing on that said list. Goals are there to help you have a visual on the things that you are wanting or needing in order to get closer to where you’re headed, that way you’ll be able to look back at that blueprint you made and set out on your work table figuratively or if you actually have one and analyze how far you got and where you are within the blueprint, so every time you complete a goal, you can always review your blueprint and check how much you’re progressing and how close you are to completing the goal.

If you want to achieve something that you feel is a little intimidating to where it’s making you feel discourage, just write down some goals to help you get where you have your mind and heart set on and once you complete that first goal all the other ones will just flow right through you and you will feel less intimidated and more courages and before you know it, you would have either gotten close to your goal or you would have completed it fully and not have even realized it until you went and checked your blueprint, remember your goal is a present waiting to be opened and if you want to see what surprises it has for you, then you better get going and work towards finishing that first goal of yours.

Anyway that’s all from me, I hope you were able to take something from todays blog post and I also hope it made sense, I don’t really have much to say here so I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening. 🙂

 

All The Love ❤ ❤

Believe That Where You’re Headed Is Where You’re Mean’t To Go In Life…..

We all know that life likes to throw a whole lot of curve balls at us along with putting obstacles in our way whenever we think that everything’s going well, but did you ever wonder why it does that!? We don’t all have the answers to why certain things happen to us and why there are times when even when we push ourselves to being a different version of ourselves everyday, there will always be a time where we will come to a roadblock and then have to decide whether we let it stop us from moving forward or do we continue to keep moving on by either finding a different route or hop over it (if we’re able to) and just keep going. For some people they would probably chose a different route and sometimes a different route is a good choice, I mean it could take you to where you need to go quickly, but would it really be worth it to avoid the obstacle compared to just facing it head on and continuing to push through it even though it’s mean’t to keep you from progressing on your journey!? Some of you may say probably and some maybe thinking gee i’m not sure…..it’s okay if you don’t know the answer to this or if you have a different outlook on the situation, everyone has their thoughts and wonders of why life puts us in all these different predicaments sometimes, it’s normal to question why things happen and also wonder could all of this be for a reason or am I just having bad luck?

I’ll tell you though it isn’t bad luck, what is happening is every situation you happen to come across be it bad, good, humiliating or just anything really is all for a reason. I’ve been learning a lot lately and what I keep coming across is, whatever your mind is like that is how your life is going to be projected to you. What i’m saying is just in case I didn’t make sense there, whatever thoughts you think on a daily bases your mind is going to make your thoughts come to life and mirror it in front of you, whether you’re aware of it or not. Your thoughts control your life, so if you’re the type of person to always think on the worst side of things that’s gonna be your reality, same goes for if you’re the kind of person to think on the best side of things, no matter what your thoughts are that is what is gonna be portrayed in your reality. So if you want things to be less hectic and you want a different outcome in your life, try focusing on how your mind is because that will determine your reality and what your life will be like as well.

Now moving on from how your thoughts determine your reality, when it comes to the life your aiming for whatever that is, it could be anything that is fulling to you and that makes you happy. When you find that something that makes you happy and it doesn’t ever seem like a chore to you that’s when you know that you found what it is you were mean’t to do, sure you have other things you like doing, but if you find yourself constantly being drawn to something and you don’t really have an idea why, just go with it, especially if you know that when you’re being pulled towards it and you feel nothing but goodness inside you and you find yourself smiling because of it then go with the feeling. Sure it may not make sense at first and you’ll probably wonder why it is your so drawn to whatever is bringing you to realize what it is your made to do, but if you feel like something is saying “hey this is what you’re suppose to do” and you too start to feel something inside you change then that’s saying something. That’s telling you that, that’s where you thrive at the most. We all have things that pull us in from time to time and makes us want to take an interest just to see what it’s all about and see if we like it or not.

That’s just how we start to determine what category we fall in when it comes to our interest if that makes sense. When we finally find what it is we are mean’t to do, everything becomes clear and not as stressful, I actually saw a post I think it was today or yesterday, but it said something along the lines of when we finally find something that we want to do and commit to it then everything that feels overwhelming and that made you think i’m never gonna find something, all that will just start to fade away because you finally have that something that makes you happy and where you’re able to say  that’s my thing you know!? Finding that thing that makes you feel good inside and where it just naturally comes to you, that is the best feeling ever. Everything else that interest you sure that’s good as well, but the feeling you get when you have that thing, where you can call it yours that feeling is beyond compared.

So when you find that thing where something inside you is calling you to it, go with it, because it’s calling you for a reason and if you know in your heart and you feel in your soul that, that’s what you’re made to do, don’t pull away from it. Let what is made for you guide you toward where you want to be headed, trust that everything that is going on in your life is for a reason and never let anyone stop you or tell you how you should be living your life. Your life is your life and even though other people may not agree with the way you’re doing things, if you know that deep down you’re doing the right thing and you feel that what you’re doing is the best thing for you, then keep going and keep working towards where you feel you’re headed. You don’t have to know where you’re headed exactly, not everyone is gonna know that, some do, but for others it’s not always the case and that’s okay, some people do things best when they’re just going with the flow of things, knowing where you’re headed is good, but sometimes it’s not knowing where you’re headed that makes things just a little more fun along with a little scary as well. It’s okay to let life blow you all around the place, that’s just it’s way of saying that eventually you’ll know what is made for you until then just keep exploring and enjoy the journey.

Trust the waves of life and if you can’t fight against the current, try floating along with it, it may help you find where you’re meant to be along the way. Alrighty well that’s all from me for now, I thought i’d share this with you guys because right now i’m in the process of doing what I feel is right even though people around me think it’s not and just in case you’re in that predicament or you’re in that mindset where you’re not sure if what you’re doing is the right thing, if it feels right and you feel happier doing what you’re doing, then just keep pushing and keep doing your thing and if no ones told you this before well, you’re doing the best you can and i’m proud of you for how far you’ve come even if it’s not the biggest thing to everyone, if it’s big to you then i’m proud of you and you’re doing great. Hope you all have a lovely night/morning and evening and remember to hang in there and when the going gets tough just keep on pushing, you’ll get there.

 

All The Love ❤ ❤
