Rise

Never forget, no matter what, the sun will rise. A new day will dawn, and you can always start over. Let your past be a teacher rather than a jailer. Learn from it, learn well, but leave it in the past where it belongs. Your future is not that direction. You're going forward, ever forward, and you're going to shine. You're going to trip, stumble, and fall too - never believe otherwise - but you're going to rise up and soar. Believe in yourself, believe in new beginnings, and keep moving forward.

Dear Daughter

There will always be struggles and heartache, but there can also be so much joy. If we stand beside each other, if we spend more time offering a hand up than pushing down, we can be more than we ever thought. Life is not easy, but it doesn't need to be. We have it within ourselves to meet the challenge, and to stand strong regardless. Face the universe with open honesty, and keep moving forward. Dear daughter, and anyone else who has been neglected for too long, you are strong, and you can make all the difference.

Unsainted

Life is not all sunshine and roses. If it were, we would quickly lose the ability to appreciate sunshine and roses. That's just human nature. It isn't necessarily right and it doesn't necessarily make sense, but that describes so much of human nature. We make bad decisions, often for all of the right reasons. Don't let those bad decisions define you, and don't cling to a mistake just because you put a lot of effort into making it. No matter what you might think at the time, some prices are never worth it. Don't lose yourself in the dark. You don't have to be perfect. You don't need to be a saint. Just do your best.

Get Up

There comes a time in every life when you have to stand up. The world will push you down, people will tell you to keep quiet, to stay small, but don't let that stand in your way. You have to be true to yourself, and you have to take the chance. There are no guarantees, you may fall flat on your face, but you might also fly higher than you ever imagined. You might even be bulletproof. You might change the world. Isn't that worth the risk?

Children Of The Sun

For many people, show me your playlist and I'll learn more about you than through almost any other means. I am certainly one of those people. I haven't done a musical theme in a while, so I think it's time. Grab your headphones and enjoy the week. Music expresses the soul, says things you may not otherwise be able to say, and gives you hope. Let's sing some songs for tomorrow, because we are Children of the Sun.

Patience Is Looking Ahead

People often mistake patience for something that is passive, but patience is not waiting simply to wait. Patience is the ability to wait, knowing that something is coming, and allowing it to come in its own time. We are an active participant when we are patient, but the activity is one that most people find the hardest. Practice patience, and see the difference it makes in your life.

Be Brave

Bravery is not the absence of fear, and it cannot be seen in the absence of any reason for fear. There is always something to learn, under any circumstances, and it is during those times when we might be afraid that we truly have a chance to learn how brave we can be. Face those times and learn about yourself, then be brave.

The Best Portion

The best in each of us has no price, and cannot be bought or sold. In fact, its highest value is derived from giving it away. Even better, the more of it we give, the more of it we will have. Share love and kindness where ever you go, and leave a better world in your passing.

Having Few Wants

Have you ever felt like the more you have the more you seem to want? There is a hole created by wanting that cannot be filled by possessing. Instead, it is necessary that we fill this place by being. If you are content within yourself, if you want less from the outside, you will have more wealth that the richest people on Earth.

Value Ourselves

We are not our possessions. We are not what is around us. Each of us is and has value in ourselves, and it is important that we remember that. What we do with things, not that we have things, is what matters.

Never Left Home

Those who have never done a thing frequently have the most advice about how that thing should be done. It is an unfortunate reality that the volume of opinions often has an inverse relationship with the knowledge behind the opinion. Keep that in mind, but don't let it stand in your way. Listen to the people who tell you a thing can't be done, hear their reasons, and then do it anyway. You will often be pleasantly surprised and, even if you don't always succeed, you will gain valuable insight from the attempt. Use that insight, and let your next attempt be even better.

Just a little note here to let everyone know that I will be traveling next week for the day job. As such, there will be no regular posts. As always, I'll share thoughts and ideas as I can, and I'll see you all when I get back. Have a great week! Namaste.

Passing Through

We will meet any number of people as we walk this journey. Some will be for a lifetime and some will be for but a moment. You may be surprised at who falls into each category, but don't let that surprise hold you back. Some people are only there to teach you a lesson - and, conversely, sometimes you are the one doing the teaching - and some people are there to get you over a hump. Be thankful for the ones who have come and gone, and do not stress too much over the leaving. Take what you have learned and let it help you make a better life.

Don't Give Up

Life is not easy. Sometimes that is even more true than other times, but there is always something you can do, some way you can make a positive impact. When the night is darkest, when you are feeling at your lowest, look for that point. Find the thing that you can do, and do it. Let that be what lifts you up in that moment. Let that be what gets you over the hump and gives you the energy to keep going. Then, keep going.

Don't Let Fear Stop You

Courage is not the absence of fear. It takes no courage at all to do a thing that you do not fear. Courage is knowing that you are afraid and doing that thing anyway. Courage, real courage, lies in never letting fear stand in your way. Fear will always be a factor. If we are alive, if we are aware, if we are not complete fools, we will be afraid. If you don't let fear stop you, you have properly demonstrated courage.

Your Soul At Peace

Live your life in such a way that you go to bed each night content and knowing that you have done all you could do, that you did it to the best of your ability, and that you will do it again tomorrow. That is the true mark of success. Everything else that we tend to label as such is fleeting. Material rewards come and go. The peace in your heart is a reward that lasts.

Learn How To Do It

Everyone has to start somewhere, and no one starts already knowing what to do. Push your boundaries and test your limits, so that you may learn where they really are. Do not assume. The best way to learn how to do something is to jump in and start doing it. You'll make mistakes, but we learn more from our mistakes than from our successes. Make all the mistakes you need, and learn how to not repeat the same ones. Before you know it, you're doing what you didn't think you could do.

One Small Positive Thought

Our thoughts make up the majority of our world. Things happen over which we have no control, but our response to those things has far more impact on our lives, in most cases. Take the time to look for the positive and you will be more inclined to have some positive response. Every little bit helps, so do your part to help yourself. You cannot always control the world around you, but you can control how you respond. Choose to respond in a beneficial manner, and see the difference that can make.

Who Fights Monsters

It is necessary that we stand opposed to those who would do harm in this world, but it is equally necessary that we be wary in our tactics and manners while doing so. It can be all too tempting to fall into the trap of believing, "Well, if it works for them ..." What works for them is precisely what you are defending against, though. Remember that. Do not become that which you oppose while you are trying to oppose. Hold onto your beliefs and ideals, so that there remains something you are building toward, rather than just something you are tearing down.

State Of Mind

Life is about our collection of days, not single, isolated events. There is always another chance, another try, another day. As long as you keep going, you will be able to go again. You do not lose until you give up, so don't give up. Keep going, and try again.

Begin To Fly

It's easy to believe, when things get tough, that you may not be able to overcome. We take some hard hits and make the mistake of believing that we'll never get up again. We would do well to remember, however, that the caterpillar takes its hardest hit right before it's greatest triumph. Steel must go through fire before it can be used. Sometimes we get knocked down so that we can stand up better than before. Believe in yourself, and keep going.
