It all started with going to drop off the letters to my sweetie at the mail drop off box. It then started to hit me, that I should start doing it more often. See, I love going on walks, a lot. I enjoy that peaceful time, the scenery the whole thing I just love it. I had stopped for a couple of weeks because of a lot of things that were going on then I decided to come back, and come back the right way. I didn’t want to mention much at the beginning because I wanted to make sure it was something I was going to stick to. This year has been not only a life changing year for me but a year where I decided to have more self discipline.
I must note that all of this has been in large part been because of inspiration from my sweetie (yeah he’s an inspiring man!). Knowing that he is doing something big and heroic really inspired me to at least try doing something for myself. My walks have gotten longer, I’m slowly incorporating jogging, my workouts have gotten more regular and more well established. I’m even thinking in taking part of a local 5k event (I even know what I want my little badge to say, a dedication to my sweetie) and that is what I am currently aiming for. I asked some members of my family to join me, but lets face it I can’t wait around for others if I must do something I must go out and do it on my own, although everyone else is welcomed to join in. I realized that having self motivation is a big part in making things happen and that’s what I’ll be sticking to. I gotta make things happen.
Smile, make things happen in your life.
There are times that we hold on to memories that are very dear to us. We hold on to these memories by keeping mementos of times past, photographs, and sometimes even people we love so much. There are times when one has to learn to just let go of the past and times that are no longer in our present and wont be in our future. Why? Because depending on the situation grasping the past more than the present and future we hurt ourselves, we hurt those around us. Holding on to what is no longer is not always a healthy thing for us. We can’t always live in something that no longer is, we cannot expect a person to be with us unhappy.
Sometimes we need to learn to let go.
It’s not easy, it is one of the hardest things to do but at times a necessary thing to do. It can’t be expected to let go overnight because sometimes it takes us time, days, weeks, months, even years to even understand that we are not happy holding on to something. I’ll give you an example, I held on to a gift an old friend gave me. Together we shared many great memories but it was a friendship that did not last as no real friendship holds betrayal. Even though I finished that friendship I held on to memories, but with time I realized that keeping them in a way kept that toxic bond still there and I had to let go for good. Letting go was an invigorating experience, I felt new, I felt like I had a grasp on my own life. I admit that letting go of things after that became easier, there’s no point to dwell on the past when we have many great moments ahead of us.
Smile, let go of what’s old and enjoy the fruits of tomorrow.
I’ve been asked a couple of times before if I ever come across writer’s block. I surely do! Many times! Now with this August goal to write a post a day I’ve had writer’s block more than ever. So what do I do to overcome this and continue with my challenge? Here are some of the things I do (in no specific order).
- Ask a friend! Sometimes I ask my friend what they think would be a good topic to write about.
- Listen to music. Sometimes music can inspire great words in our minds.
- Read a book or a blog. Great authors can lead us in the right path.
- Watch a movie. Ever been inspired by a cinematic scenery?
- Get up and forget about writing. Sometimes we need of thoughts and having that rest might give us new and refreshed ideas later on.
I had a teacher who told us to always carry a small book and something to write with, a pen, a pencil, a crayon or whatever it was that we wanted to write with. Many of us looked at our teacher wondering why he would say such thing. It was only later that I discovered that ideas come and go sometimes when you least expect it and if you don’t capture them in the moment they can go away and never be expressed. So hold on to your ideas, express them to the world!
Smile, capture an idea.
