Always Keep Fighting

Putting one foot in front of the other can sometimes be the hardest thing you have to do, but that's how you get through. Sometimes it's easier to do than others, but there is more to see, more to do, and more to love. You are stronger than you know, and you are not alone. Keep going. #AlwaysKeepFighting #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

Mental Health Is Important

You exercise, you eat right, you see a doctor when you need to, but what about your mental health? Your mind is just as important as your body, and needs most of the same management and upkeep. You wouldn't be embarrassed to have the flu treated, and you wouldn't try to just walk off a broken leg. You should have the same consideration for your mental health. #NoStigma #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

Mental Health Month

We are in the middle of #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth so I want to take some time to make sure you are being aware and taking care of yourself. Mental health can be a puzzle, but it doesn't have to be a puzzle you work alone. Be aware of the pieces, be aware of how you interact with those pieces, and don't be afraid to get help.

The Light Is The Same

We have different lamps, different guides, different teachings, but love is love. If you are teaching love, you are adding light to the world, and this world could use more light. Raise your lamp high, whether or not it is the same lamp as your neighbor's, and let the world see love added into love.

Strength Of The Spirit

Sometimes the greatest achievements are accomplished, not by those with the most physical ability, but by those who just had the will to do it. Sometimes just seeing that something needs to be done and then not giving up until it is done demonstrates the greatest ability. The will to achieve, when properly harnessed, can be the greatest tool you possess. Use it well, and use it wisely.

Compassion Is

Whether or not you agree with them, whether or not you believe they are in the right, whether or not you even like someone, you can still wish someone to be free from suffering. Do you want to know the dividing line between the good people and the not-so-good people, when it gets gray and complicated, when life gets complicated and you have a hard time making the distinction? It's compassion, more often than not. True, genuine compassion. Keep that in mind.

Sooner Begun

Sooner begun is sooner done. The most difficult task does not get easier by postponing it. If you are having trouble with something, if something scares you, the secret is to begin. Just get started, and, before you know it, you have gotten through.

No One Recipe

No two lives are exactly the same. What works for one may not work for another. What is bliss for one may be horror for another. We must each walk our own path and find our own place.

Walk Gently

Do you reveal everything you are thinking and feeling to every person you pass each day? Probably not. We tend to forget, however, that the people we pass are probably not revealing everything also. Do not assume you know how a person is struggling from what you can see. There are many wounds that do not show. Walk gently, and be mindful of what might be.

Courage Is A Decision

Everyone gets afraid. It is an involuntary response to unexpected or unrecognized stimulus. What we do with that fear, though, is what matters. We can stay in the reaction, wallow in fear, or we can choose to act in a way that will alleviate fear, create new paths, and move forward.

Resistance To Change

We have been told so many times that change is difficult, but change happens every day, often without our conscious awareness. It is not change that is difficult; it is our response to change. We cling to the familiar and fear what may become, so we cause our own tension and stress rather than allow life to progress in its natural course. Should we resist some change? Certainly. Change, in itself, is neither good nor bad. Evaluate mindfully and make an aware determination whether or not a change warrants a painful response.

It Is Our Choices

We are each born with a set of skills and abilities that are not of our own choosing. We each have reactions and reflexes that we did not design. These things may factor into what we are, but they cannot define who we are. It is the decisions we make and the actions we choose that show who we really are. Choose well, and be who you intend to be.

Face Yourself

The easiest way to change the world is to change yourself. The scariest way to change the world is to change yourself. Yes, those two go hand in hand, but it is the simple reality. Facing yourself, admitting the need for change, and then making that change can be a monumental undertaking, but this is also the one part of the universe over which you have the most control. Face yourself and make a better world.

Life Is Locomotion

If you're living, you're moving, but the direction matters. Are you running away from or toward? You will do both at various times in your life, but make sure you're doing the latter more often. That's how you grow. That's how you truly live. And remember, direction is more important than speed. Keep moving forward, no matter the interruptions.

What Sort Of World

What sort of world do you want to live in? I vote for the world where we try to respect the basic rights of those around us, and value each other simply because we exist. I hope you do to, because we could use all the help we can get, but remember, this takes work. We can't just respect and value when it's easy. In order for this to really stick, we have to respect and value at all times. We have to check every action against this criteria, and we have to change if we discover that what we are doing does not demonstrate respect and value. In order to make a better world, we have to be better.

A Hero Can Be Anyone

It doesn't require special powers or a uniform of any kind to be a hero. It requires the motivation to make the world a better place in some way, and the action to follow through on that desire. It can be a gesture or a movement, and it's always an option. Be a hero today.

Dignity, Honor, and Justice

What will you fight for? What wakes you up and makes you stand tall? Personally, I can't think of a better battle cry than Dignity, Honor, and Justice. Think about it. Dignity: the state of being worthy of honor and respect; self-respect. Honor: regard with great respect; fulfill an obligation or uphold an agreement; integrity. Justice: the quality of being just, impartial, or fair; conformity to truth. That sounds like the building blocks of a better world to me. How about you?

See The World

Every chance you get, go somewhere. See and experience as much as you can. The world is more than the corner you inhabit, and there is so much out there to do and see and learn. You'll never experience all of it, but the more you experience the more you will be.

Reminder: I am heading to the airport shortly, and will be out of town the rest of the week. I'll share what I see, and I'll see you next week. Take care of yourselves. Namaste.

A Drop In The Ocean

I am the universe, discovering itself through distinct experience, and so are you. Everything is a chance to learn, and everything is connected to everything else. Just as the wave is both itself and the ocean, so too are we all ourselves and everything else.

Web Of Life

We have a bad habit of forgetting how small our world really is. Everything touches everything else. What impacts one place will ultimately impact all places. It is all connected. We may not all agree on everything necessary to take care of this planet, but surely we can all agree we live here. This is our home, and it only makes sense to take care of your home. Keep it clean. Keep it livable. Keep it home.

By the way, this will be a short week at Frequently Interrupted, because I will be going out of town Wednesday for the day job. As always, I'll share if I see anything to share, and we will be back to normal next week. Take care. Namaste.

The Miracle Of Being Alive

Oscar Wilde once observed that most people never live; they simply exist. Don't be most people. Get out there and touch life. Make it your mission to learn what it means to be alive, and then do that. You are not a place holder. Be alive.

Don't Let Fear Stop You

Everyone is afraid, at one time or another. Some more often than others, and some you might never know. Courage has nothing to do with not being afraid. Courage is all about moving forward no matter the fear. Keep going and keep doing the right thing. Don't let fear stop you, and don't let it make your decisions. That is the meaning of courage.

Let this be your motto: Do the right thing. No matter what you do, when you do it, or who is around, do the right thing. What you do when no one is looking is what defines who you are, so make sure your definition is who you want to be. Do the right thing.
