Day 1836 How about you kiss my ……..

25 03 2018

Hello people and hope life is going great for you. Past 4 weeks, I had to put my dog to sleep, got  a new job where I travel, a new cell-phone which there is a learning curve,  and sat in the middle seat twice on a plane. 1 st world problems but still, the middle seat!

 

One thing I do a lot of is reflect. It might be a conversation, a text, the way I reacted, my thoughts at that moment, why I didn’t do something or I did. I’m always trying to be better than I was when the alarm went off that day. Some days I’m a miserable failure on being better and some days actually proud of myself. If you know me that’s something I’ve struggle with my whole life. If I was a fighter in his prime I’m Muhammad Ali the way I beat myself up. It’s a blessing and curse because you always hold yourself to a higher standard but also I never give myself a break. So today I did a reflecting on the past year of my life. It’s still new in the year and a lot of time to have the year I want.  So why not. Why do you get angry at the smallest thing sometimes, you do realize that the 99 problems you built up in your head actually the only one you had was yourself. Why do you go to church on Sunday, sit by yourself and then leave early. I guess Jesus left the building so you thought you were on his level.  Why do you neglect texts from people all they wanted to know is how you’re doing. They probably actually cared.  I know you push a lot of people out of your life because your afraid of them but you should be proud of the few you allowed to stay.. Every time you speak to a group of total strangers and pour your heart out you are doing something great. Somebody walks away with something and if you don’t believe that God knows. The messages you post to Facebook to help encourage or offer hope you should heed those same messages. You don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to tell everyone how horrible you were in your past. They want to know your story but who you are now is who and what they like and be comfortable in it. You can’t save everyone but you know 3 you have. You’re doing your part stop and be happy about those. Every time you knew you should have said yes but said no I hoped you learned from that.  I know you think have no clue what to do with a teenage daughter but when she kisses your forehead and says she loves you  that she really does.  When you did for yourself or went somewhere you wanted to go did you ever regret it. The answer is no and its okay to take care of yourself too. When you get by urself and you  cry that’s God just getting me to cleanse myself so I can see what I  forget. You are not broken anymore, your glued back and your beautiful. Yes mom and dad are proud of who you are. You work so hard to be a great parent. Finally you’re a really good man, worthy of the most love, patience, grace and hope from another. Every morning you tell yourself that because as flawed and broken as you are and were you’re an  example and very few can wake up every morning and say that.

Just throwing out my thoughts because thats what a blog is for. Happy Easter and eat a cadbuy for me. Oh and you dont have to kiss my …. I just liked the title





Day 950 What I would have told myself yesterday

3 09 2015

It’s that time of when the air starts to get crisp and the leaves are staring to change. You can feel the people starting to get in a better mood because its getting cooler. Then you realize you live in Texas and today I got a sunburn on the top of my head because I was standing outside for 10 minutes. Im sure people thought it was a BBQ but no my head. Im ready for it to get cooler and also starting eating and drinking more pumpkin stuff. My man card might just have lost points but Im willing to take that chance.

Ont thing I do a lot of is reflect. It might be a conversation, a text, the way I reacted, my thoughts at that moment, why I didn’t do something or I did.

It’s a blessing and curse because you always hold yourself to a higher standard but also I never give myself a break. So today I did a reflecting on the past year of my life. Its the new school year and Im only 39 days away from being 40 Yikes!!!  So why not. Why do you get angry at the smallest thing sometimes, you do realize that the 99 problems you built up in your head actually the only one you had was yourself. Why do you go to church on Sunday, sit by yourself and then leave early. I guess Jesus left the building so you thought you were on his level.  Why do you neglect texts from people all they wanted to know is how you’re doing. They probably actually cared. Y I know you push a lot of people out of your life because your afraid of them but you should be proud of the few you allowed to stay.. Every time you speak to a group of total strangers and pour your heart out you are doing something great. Somebody walks away with something and if you don’t believe that God knows.

You are not broken anymore, your glued back and your beautiful. Yes dad is so proud of you. Mom believes that you kept your promise that you made to your dad that you would take care of her and your sister. Finally you’re a really good man, worthy of the most love, patience, grace and hope from another. Every morning you tell yourself that because as flawed and broken as you are and were you’re an  example and very few can wake up every morning and say that.

This blog was for me to go back and read when I forget about who I am. I’m sharing it with you because I know I’m not the only one that feels this way. Thank you for always reading and being supportive.

Day 363 So you can have a few regrets

9 01 2014

The first real week on the new year and people are not motivated! Its like people have eaten Thanksgiving dinner for every meal and the triptafan (not sure how to spell it) is kicking in. I was sitting Starbucks and people were ordering espresso like it was a glass of water. For those who know me  or read this blog you already know this. For those that don’t I’m weird and guess what it’s part of my greatness. Appreciate it and your weird too and that’s okay! It’s sad how I try to hide my weirdness. It’s what makes us unique use it please.

Saw a great post of Facebook today and I read through it and I would agree with the whole list.  It was 37 things you will regret when you old! They say don’t regret but sorry we do. I wanted to pick out of few but have attached the link so you can read the whole thing.

37 Things you’ll regret when old

2. Not learning another language.- You would think being in construction for 15 years and taking two years of spanish in high school I would know more. IF I was bi-lingual I would advanced further. All I know is all the bad words and some about construction terms. I still have time though!

6. Be scared to do things!- When I was younger I was idiot and would do anything. AS I got older I became and not sure why! I always hear older people talking about that the only thing they should have been afraid of is not having more chances to learn.

11. Not realizing I was beautiful or handsome.- I still struggle with it today but it’s so much better. Not every girl is going to like me. I’m not GQ but I’m close. We think we have to be some picture in  a magazine and it’s not true. We are all beautiful we just have to know it or nobody else will.

22. Not asking Grandparents or older people things before they died.- I was always in a hurry! Didn’t have time and in the past 4 years it has been a tremendous experience to know things that otherwise I could only read in books!  Once they’re gone all we has in ink on paper!

25. Not stopping to appreciate the moment- In this microwave society we are always in a hurry! Enough said!

31. Never taking a big risk (especially in love) I hope I have time to do this one or give myself the chance. Love is the strongest emotion we have and I want it again but its the riskiest thing I will ever do again.

Day 96 No regrets

25 11 2012

What a whirlwind of a holiday.Had a great time with my family and yesterday trying to be uncle and dad of the year I took my kids, my nephew and my sister’s boyfriends daughter all by myself to Toys-R-US. The kids are 4-6-8-10. Yes it may have been a wrong calculated move but we made it out alive Not sure about the store but we are good.

A few surprises took place this past four days and truly they were great. I ‘ll blog about those later but thank you. I also got my ass chewed out again by a blog reader who can’t seem to get that if you don’t like what I write then don’t read. That’s a beautiful thing in this country that we can make those choices.

I follow about 20 people on Facebook and some of them post some amazing things.Today one of the best I have read in a long time I m re-posting.This came from my friend Sheila Tucker who posted the blog by Life Coach Carla Ferrer in Dallas.

The quote from the unknown author is something I will swear to never live by again. 15, 19, and 26 are my life missions right now

Some of these I’ve learned easily, some not so easily… but what I can state without doubt is that no matter what — you can make of your life whatever you desire!

 

“The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.” ~ Unknown

 

We all have something stored in our memory banks of the past that we wish we could have done differently, or something we wish we didn’t do.

As we get older we learn and grow. But that doesn’t mean we have to regret what we did before we learned how to do things differently. If we didn’t go through those experiences we might not have grown into the strong and knowledgeable people we are today.   So what I’m proposing is that we get rid of the negative thoughts—the could have’s, might have’s, and should have’s—and start living a life that won’t make us feel regretful. Not even at an older, wiser age.

Here is a list of 40 things you can do to practice living life with no regrets:

 

1.   Realize that it’s okay to make mistakes. Just make sure to learn from your past mistakes, forgive yourself and move on.

2.   Make your health and wellness a top priority and always take care of yourself so you’re ready to take care of others.

3.   Follow your own path—not one that others want you to follow.

4.   Find the humor in life and laugh like there is no tomorrow.

5.   Relax and move with the flow of life by being unafraid of change

6.   Be adventurous by trying new things and taking more risks.

7.   Have more intellectual curiosity and embrace creativity.

8.   Try to find happiness with as many different people as you can.

9.   Think for yourself instead of letting other people’s opinions influence you too much.

10. Try not to judge people before you get to know them.

11. Be thankful for what you have now instead of thinking about what you don’t have.

12. Wish well upon everyone equally and try to admire without envy.

13. Share your happiness with others instead of hoarding it all for yourself.

14. Don’t try to change someone—love who they are now.

15. Enjoy the journey, not just the destination.

16. Know that happiness is bigger than any bank account.

17.Control negative thoughts so that they don’t contribute to the outcome of your life.

18. Use your energy wisely because spending energy complaining, worrying or being impatient is just wasted energy.

19. Be bold. Find the courage to change things that should be changed and accept that there are some things that cannot be changed.

20. Love your work. If you don’t currently love what you do, figure out what you would love, and take the first step toward that life.

21. Turn your discontent into a mystery and enjoy trying to solve it.

22. Face problems from different angles in order to find solutions.

23. Gain independence by realizing that on this earth we are all dependent upon each other.

24. Change your perspective by taking on a wider view of things.

25. Don’t waste time trying to bring disagreeable people around to liking you.

26. Become the person you would like to spend the rest of your life with.

27. Be honest with yourself and others by saying what you mean and meaning what you say.

28. Treat people with respect and compassion.

29. Live in the now by loving the present and being aware of your thoughts and actions. Think happy thoughts and speak powerful words.

30. Try not to put things off until later.

31. Never hold grudges.

32. Face your fears head on and try to do the things that you think you cannot do.

33. Spend time with people who make you happy while also not depending on other people for your own happiness.

34. Stand up for yourself and others and don’t let anyone or anything hold you back.

35. Be yourself and love who you are now.

36. Be a participant in life rather than an observer.

37. Do the things that you love to do as much as you can.

38. Write out a list of goals and achieve them by doing them step by step. Don’t give up when things get difficult.

39. Do something every day that makes you feel proud of yourself—commit random acts of kindness whenever you get the chance.

40. And always keep on moving forward.

 

I know it seems like a rather large list of things to take on, but you can accomplish a lot on this list by doing just one thing. For example, right now as I’m typing this I’m putting into practice at least ⅔ of this list.

Indeed, from my heart to yours, believe me when I say, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by putting these things into practice and seeing where life takes you, without regrets.

 

With much love and light to each and all… God Bless!
