Today am thinking about...

It sure is mine!!! I often, uncomfortably, joke that I will be "late to my own funeral".

Just when I think I have a handle on my "problem", I go through a major "late phase". I truly mean NO disrespect, and am not trying to make excuses.

It is something I learned (apparently very well) very young, in my life. Often, if my Father had to be somewhere 20 minutes away, he would leave 10 minutes before he had to be there; and gripe at traffic, and all that got in his way!!!

Though it has a name, as in description above, it does not make me feel any better; and I HAVE made improvements, over the years. As a general rule, I am either very early, or running late.

I believe, as I continue my efforts, that the pendulum swing will level out.

I DO set alarms, and am attempting to phase out all "snooze" time. That HAS worked for no longer laying in bed that extra half hour. There are also alarms for "Get Ready", and "Leave".

It is a process, and I WILL get there. It is NOT because I am not trying. Doesn't every Superhero have their "kryptonite"??!

Have a good day, and be safe...

Don't you just LOVE when you're in a group of people, and some of them start trying to "One-up", each other??!

Honestly, this could go on for DAYS!!! I usually get bored, VERRRY quickly, and just walk away.

You see...I have no competition - well, technically, just myself. That is about all I can handle. My self-esteem is basically just fine, also.

It really saddens me, when this happens. It is usually the ones that everyone "looks up to", and thinks are "the strongest".

I see them as the weakest, and least likely to try ANYTHING new. They're content to regale anyone that will listen, with the conquests they have made in their PAST life. Kind of pathetic, don't you think?

I would rather be out there, falling on my face or my butt, most of the time; but still out there trying...wouldn't you??!
No "Contest" happening here...

Have a good day, and be safe...

Have you ever done something, be it pick an outfit or pair of shoes to wear, to changing your life-course 180 degrees; and people close to you look at you like you sold the cow or crop that could have brought in a boatload of money, for a handful of magic beans.

That is the look I have gotten a LOT in my life, because I tend to make those..."left-field" decisions in life. They have all worked in my favor, thus far, because I am following MY path. Plus, even if I made a wrong decision, until you're dead, changes can still be made, right??! The path may just be a little longer, sometimes. More to observe!!! 😉😉😉

People who are closest to us, and only want the best for us give us that look, because they care so much; and yes, there are those that just don't matter as much, that just think you've lost your freaking mind. Same look, by the way.

My point is this - you have GOT to walk your own path, in this life. Yes, there will be good decisions, aaaaand, those not-so-good decisions. There could be good windfall, and major consequences - whether a good decision, or not. This is life.

Some days, I am amazed at the progress and growth I have had in my life; and other days, I forget to unfasten the seatbelt before trying to exit the car. Again, this is life.

Are you making your life, or following the status quo? Are you happy with the life you have, right now? Are there changes YOU need to make, either small, or large? Are you prepared for someone to give YOU the "Look of the Magic Beans..."??!

Have a good day, & be safe...

Now, I bet you thought I was going to start listing names of some great motivational speakers, or movers and shakers we have in the world, today. Nopenopenope; although they ARE all playing an integral part in the shaping of our current culture - some positive, some negative - but you already knew that!!!

I'm talking about the underlying  feelings that are motivating our motivators, and everyone else, whether they realize it, or not.

FEAR seems to be a primary Motivator, right now. Fear of an inexhaustible multitude of things:
- ALL colors believing the other colors in the world are getting so far ahead of them, just because of their skin - in the news EVERY day!!! Yet, there is SOOO much positive happening in this topic that is being blatantly ignored!!!
- I KNOW that our Government, and many people are a little terrified of people really grasping the Constitution, and it's Amendments; and what COULD very easily happen in OUR Country, again!!!

PAIN is another Motivator - it's all over Facebook, on a regular basis - pain DOES change people!!! It destroys hope of trusting anyone, again.

And those are only TWO major Motivators; and if you look close, they are woven together to make a strong cord!!!

What Great Motivators come to YOUR mind, when you sit and think about it? As I said, the list is inexhaustible!!! But what makes YOU fight for what YOU believe??!

(DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a political person, persay; but wrong IS wrong!!!)

Have a good day, and be safe...

...and live it...

I have learned, over the years, how to live my passion of helping people, through my 40-hour-a-week job - crazy right??!

However, I have recently begun taking strides toward being able to live my passion, alone, by growing my Blog and my website - and to get paid for it - I am nowhere near that, yet; but it IS in the center of my Life-Target!!! 🏹🏹🏹

#BELIEVE, is only part of it. I was in quite a frenzy, over the previous few months; getting emails and information, that if all was printed, would probably cover the Empire State Building, completely!!!

Then, I took an online course over the last month and a half, that has sharpened my focus. (THANK YOU, Joelene!!!)

"If you chase after two rabbits, you usually end up with NO rabbits..." This is SUCH WISDOM.

There is still an element of "Hustle"; but anything worthwhile IS worth working for, right??!

But, to be successful in anything, YOU have to do the work. The chances of the proverbial, "Lightning in a Bottle", are pretty slim.

I am trying to do as much as I can, EVERY day, to work toward my goal - even if I just hand out ONE business card.

What is YOUR passion? Have you ever thought about it? Would LOVE to hear some of your thoughts and ideas on the topic. My email address is beamererin@yahoo.com.

(Btw, I LOVE my business cards - the starkness of the black and white just POPS, to me. Logo created, from my vision from the start, by Nikki's Vinyl - look for her online - see Links page on Menu!!! Thanks, Nikki!!!)

Thank you, have a good day, and be safe...
