I posted a thought yesterday on Facebook, the topic was season change. Growing up in Cleveland Ohio, we had the four seasons which I loved. You ever needed to look at a calendar at any given time, simply looking outside told you what month it was. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, how I miss those seasons. Spring time, looking at the snow melting and see the green grass underneath brought a smile to my face and all the beautiful flowers and birds signing there happy melodies all in harmony was the best. And then Summer time, the humanity was the worst and all those mosquitos and boy they were hungry and the heat felt the same day or night. The Autumn, my favorite because all the leaves started changing colors which made it appear like a beautiful photo and those cool breezes from the lake felt like winter and you knew it was coming, beautiful times. And then Winter, so many memories freezing and always shoveling snow comes to mind. Staying up late looking outside our window and seeing a fresh blanket of snow covering the entire street up and down, light post shinning on the snow-covered on the ground and made it look like crystals sparkling an amazing sight.
I share this with everyone, because as the season change so do our moods, some people get sad, some get angry and others feel a sense of happiness. It’s not good or bad when your mood changes, but to understand why? This is where we begin to heal and put those old thoughts to rest. It’s time to create new thoughts and new feeling because we have grown and we too have changed. There is never the same Winter or Summer. So why should we still carry the same thoughts? Let them go and begin new ones.
So as we begin to harness new thoughts and feeling, we too will begin to appreciate the season as they change each day a new and enjoying our times with family and friends makes it all the better. Changes in our thoughts, with new-found love and gratitude our feelings will now be different and fresh.
So next time you starting feeling sad, look back and ask yourself why? And if so, don’t put too much energy into it. Give 5 or 10 minutes and then move on to better thoughts. It has worked for me, and has made a big difference in my life. Good energy in and good out. Our lives and how we think things through affect our families as well. Smile more and live in the NOW, because that’s all we’ve. Season change and so should we. Look at thing with an open heart and mind and accept things for what they are. Change is good and not the opposite go with it and dust off your body and start a new, it’s truly a beautiful thing.
Affecting our moods sure make a difference with our family and friends. Be that person people want to be around, or better yet be that light I keep reading about. There are better ways of doing things, smiling, easiest thing that comes to mind. So be the four season and continue to change for the better and everyone else will be happier and so will YOU.
Ever since I could remember I always wanted to do something great. I thought about many things growing up, engineer, teacher, sports coach, and yes playing professional baseball. Our focus and commitments don’t always line-up, because things just happen. Here’s the truth, we’re told you are to slow, to fat, or not tall enough, and yes not smart enough. So we listen because the words hit hard and we believe. That’s were it all begins, so we stop dreaming and just start doing as we’re told. I picked this topic, because it hits home for me. Growing up people would say, you can’t do that or its to difficult. The simple truth is, those things and ideas were too hard for them, they only did it because they were told the same thing. So how do we break the mold, great question. Here’s how it worked for me. I stopped asking for people approves and just started doing. And guess what happened things just started working, impossible became simple. Words, are powerful if they are structured correctly. I describe these words as the black magic of failure, foolish, slow, idiotic, crazy, absurd, batty, senseless, and I could go on. When words are used in this manner you now have two strikes against you. So before you start asking your family or friends for their approvals, stop right there and just look into your heart and tell yourself with conviction and dedication your dreams and aspirations will prevail. It’s the same for an illness, yes, we all have something.
Your attitude and frame of mind are your antidotes for a healthier state of mind. I have read many spiritual books on healing from within, eating healthy foods are essential in helping your immune system resist a particular infection or toxin which triggers your disease. I’m not saying to stop living, but what I’m writing out are the things I have changed in my life and has help me to overcome this illness. I say, illness because I have embraced it and told myself to stop being angry and having negative thoughts. So now I’m 100% focused on healing myself through healthier organs which are vital in fighting off any illness or disease.
So, I say “Why not Me” because I will defeat this illness and like all those before me and how they overcame their illness or disease and lived a normal life.
So take good care of yourself and enjoy the simple pleasure of life, work and achieve your goals and success will surly follow you. Exercise daily, and take your walks or jogs just keep your body in motion. I am thankful and blessed for having the best family and support team ever. My wife and her sergeant like attitude and kicking me in the butt every time I need it. Her understanding of holistic treatment of the whole person, than your physical symptoms of a disease.
Gluten Free diet, and all the vitamins and all the supplements, acupuncture, deep tissue massage, including acupuncture deep tissue massage. These have kept me from sitting in a wheel chair. There are methods and other medicine which can be used to treat your illness. So don’t block out alternatives methods. Have an open mind to everything and seek help from the best Doctor in the world your inter body and mind.
You deserve the best, from the moment you took your first breath of air. So it’s all mind over matter.
