The mindset of gratefulness

puzzle-2048252_1920Isn’t life such a fascinating journey? To think, that even before we were conceived, we were but a twinkle in the eye of the beholder, a star in the sky. We are “star stuff,” after all, aren’t we?
 
To ponder and know that we were born at the exact time, on the exact day we were born, to the mother that conceived us, and into the family chosen for us. Even those that have broken families, that have experienced many trials and tribulations, I hope can stand before us, and verbalize the statement, “I am grateful to be alive today.”
 
We can also ponder the other side of the card, which would lead to questioning, “why was this child born into poverty, etc.” You could also ask yourself why Jesus was born in Bethlehem, and lived in Nazareth, where he had been brought up, only to be continually rejected, and put through trial after trial. Why was he born into such a time, and such a city?
You see, our creator knows what is best for our own personal growth, as souls in these vessel vehicles we have. It is up to us to seek out the light, to seek out our souls purpose, and to seek out quality time with our creator, in the vast endlessness that IS universal love.
Our lives are only but a small piece of the greater plan, let’s not waste our time here shall we? Seek and you shall find. If we are not constantly & consciously seeking, yearning, and using our “time” here in a progressive manner, what are we contributing to the greater good?
 
We were all put here with gifts; beautiful, expodential, crucial, tremendous gifts. They are buried deep, in the corners of our soul to be specifically sought out. Perhaps you will come upon a realization of these gifts by accident, or you will purposely search for them with an internal fire. Some of you may not know what you are here for, but if you take a moment to look at your surroundings, the loving souls that you have in your life, can you too state, “I’m grateful, and happy to be alive today?”
We simply must hold out hope, and have a strong positive mindset, even in the face of adversity, even after trial after trial. We are all very blessed to be alive, on this place we call earth, we are all very special, and an important piece to this universal puzzle. We all fit together into a completed puzzle, a magnificent puzzle. IF only we work together, and hold out a vision of peace, together. There is power when united!
 
Have a happy day my friends, be grateful you are here today, it is by no mistake.

RaysUp! To be the best you, that you can be.

Hindsight is 20/20, right? (9 minute read)

Growing up, everyone always used the term “hindsight is 20/20,” to which I truly had no understanding about. I had a general grasp of the term, although I had yet to apply it. Life works that way sometimes, a concept is understood generally speaking, but it isn’t until that concept is applied in some way, that it truly comes to life.

Let’s delve a little deeper into this “clear hindsight theory,” shall we?

Throughout life we make choices that “seem” like they are the best choice to our minds, our hearts, and our souls. For example, you met someone new, hit it off, went on a couple dates, and then she/he wanted to take it a step farther, that scary “c” word, comes to mind…. COMMITMENT. When faced with this decision to enter into a committed relationship, did we ask ourselves all the crucial questions involved in this life decision? Or did we just “go with the flow?” Continue reading

It is at certain intervals of life that we tend to take a step back an assess our progress. Sometimes during the reflection process we come across different realizations; choices we have made that have put us on the track to where we are today. Whilst shuffling through these past accomplishments and failures, we can’t help but compare our past triumphs and losses to where we are in this very moment. Continue reading

Sourcing “Happiness”

When you approach someone you interact with throughout the day, and ask them, “how are you today?” Most of them will respond with the traditional, “good,” “alright,” “super!” (sarcasm is usually included in that one) There are few people I have come to interact with that can tell me that they are “wonderful” with genuine honesty reflecting in their eyes. I’m sure that when any of us are asked, “how are you today?” We run scenarios through our heads; “well my car is not running the best, I’m low on money, I feel like I’m coming down with a cold, a loved one is in the hospital etc.” We instantly search our vast, beautiful minds for something positive, yet we rarely come back to the question with that positivity beaming forth from our faces.
