Today am thinking about...

I heard this phrase, somewhere, and it definitely resonated with me.

I'm getting ready for our Art Exhibit, in September. I literally have a pile of components on the chair, across from me. Can't wait to see what comes of it!!!

I have notebooks, with ideas written on the first page (new idea, new notebook, right??!), all over my office.

I come up with a plethora of ideas for EVERYTHING, every week. Day by day.

Sure, they're not all gold; but if I don't get them written down, or recorded, somehow; I may never cure the common cold!!!

Okay, I know I'm not going to do that; but you get what I mean. They are important - at least to me.

Does anyone else feel like this??! Please message me here, on the Facebook page, or beamererin@yahoo.com.

Have a good day, and be safe...

Make a difference in our lives? Change our outcome; what happens on a daily basis?

Start with yourself.

You are the only one that has that power - and NO one can take it, unless for some reason, they feel you have given that right to them.

If you have, you have the strength inside you to take it back. It is NOT an easy road; but with support and the information that is available, it CAN be done.

It will be scary. But you have to HONESTLY look at your situation, and decide what is scarier - changing your situation, or not.

Reach out - tell a friend, call a hotline, there is innumerable information in the internet. Use a friend's phone/computer if you need to be safe.

Others believe in you - you just have to believe in yourself, and the power you DO have.

In a lot that's going on, these days, anger is the motivation. Anger, frustration, fear, etc - all of what people refer to as negative emotions.

I, myself, was operating out of fear and anger, five months ago; that's for sure.

While these emotions ARE great motivators; if left on their own, they can lead to death and destruction. I'm not saying positive emotions may not have the same outcome.

It's in the daily living of life, that I choose to utilize my positive emotions. Not in a "boop-boop-e-doop" kind of way; but to see things realistically.

Can my emotions change ANY of the outcomes for situations around me? Nope. But they CAN affect how I handle/react to the situations that come up, around me.

Many people are attempting to control billions by their fear tactics. I read, that we have not been given "...the Spirit of fear; but of power and love, and a sound mind." I believe this to be true.

I have worked very hard to get to this point. It's NOT the Easy Way, believe me; but it is the best way for me, and a lot of people.

Lately, I have really been annoyed by the "kill the messenger" attitude by some people around me. 

I am aware, especially in this time of Covid, how things sometimes change by the minute; and that everybody's tense.

This gives no one the right to snap, when people are trying to clarify - that is me. Trying to catch-up, and clarify when I return to a situation I've been away from for a day or two.

It still gets under my skin, a bit; but I have started just saying, "Ok, just trying to clarify.", and walking away. I have no time for petty stuff in my life. 

I am also attempting to not be the "kill the messenger" person; that's not my normal M.O., but sometimes am tempted to snap back when they try to clarify with me. 

Two wrongs will NEVER make a right...

Trying to let it all run off, like water off a duck, to keep my inner peace - which is my BIGGEST priority. 

Anyone else feeling this way??! Would love to hear your feedback. Please message me at beamererin@yahoo.com.

"If it walks like a duck..." 😉😉😉

I believe this is what is missing from our society, today - The Listening. 

Everyone is so hell-bent on getting THEIR issue/agenda to the front of everyone's mind; that NOBODY is listening to each other. People are just taking sides in the frenzy; and Truth appears to be irrelevant.

I'm not saying either side is lying; but why ARE there "sides"??! Not to take ANYTHING away from #BLM, in any way; but bottom-line, we ARE all in this life, together!!!

Change DOES need to happen - but it will not until EVERYONE starts listening.

Our Country is only 244 years old. By most world standards, we are a baby. Babies must be taught; and then as they grow, learn from their mistakes - to take responsibility for them. THAT is the ONLY way true growth will happen.

We are getting further and further apart, daily (btw, the media is NOT helping); and if we ALL don't step up, it will not stop.

I spent the first 30 years of my life not saying much; the last 28 doing a LOT of talking - finding out who I was, what I needed, etc.

Now, life has brought me to a balance, of sorts. I am able to listen - and am ready to help others get to their "listen-time", too.

I know this post isn't a solve-all; but wouldn't it be a great place to start??!
