Sit back and say ahhh...

Whatever you are worrying about, or stressing about right now (or worrying about stressing over), put it on the back burner while I try to explain to you about the beauty of now.  Yes life is stressful,  sometimes life is downright horrible but I have learned something lately and that is to find peace in the beauty of being, and the beauty of now. 

I have had a blessed day off work today and as I woke up on my own alarm clock, (with the sun), I heard the most joyous children laughing.  Somehow, that cheer ran through me, and I realized in that moment that this is it! This is really what it every is! and I will love every moment of it.  There are times when life is dark and gloomy, and even down right scary.  But the moment we have every day is NOW. 

So how do we stop the stressing and focus on the now?  That is a good question that I have to remind myself of daily.  Here are my reminders: 

  • Create a saner to do list
  • Today go with the flow, do not let the little things bother you.
  • Find inner peace by breathing, thinking green ( I do this one alot), flex your feet, relax your face, take a break. 
  • Find a nice place to breathe (mine is usually the bathroom) 
  • Find the joke in the stress and laugh, laugh, laugh.
  • Music, calming, good music. 

Remember when your body is stressed your brain strains, you have memory loss, your stomach gets upset, it is bad for your heart, and (I know this from school) you can even have fertility problems. 

Every day try to exercise your soul.  Sometimes to do this you have to serve others.  It does my soul good to serve others.  It is so hard to find the time to serve (which can sometimes cause stress) but I tell myself that serving can be as simple as smiling and saying hello to someone. 

I have found though that my childrens laughter and having fun with my children is the best thing for me. I have been blessed with so much and I will take every moment I can get! 

Time to laugh!!!  Fun with my kids.

I sitting in a conference, full of doctors and nurses and this is what I hear........It is a sad day for the white man in America.  The government is giving my hard earned money to minorities and to women!  He was not addressing the group (THANK HEAVENS) he was sitting in front of me, talking to a group of....Women!!!!   Not one of them said anything, feeling the need to act overwhelmed me and I lost all willingness to be nice!  I put in my angry eyes and tapped him on the shoulder and said, 'Excuse me, I could not help but overhear your ignorance.  I think it is a sad day in America when a white man still has such delusional ideas.  You SIR are a bigot, and I pity you, I am embarrassed for you and hope that you never break down in my neighborhood which is predominately women.....and minorities.  We will be the one's offering you a ride, we will be the ones digging you out of the snow.  And SIR, I am a women and I pay taxes....plenty of them!  No man pays my taxes for me. It is me!
.......WAITING FOR APPLAUSE!!!!!  NOPE! I got crickets!!!  The women around me all turned their heads....I got up and walked out.  Sorry my Mormon friends but WHAT THE HELL?????  

As I was leaving one women did get up and follow me.  She explained to me that the reason she did not say anything is because she works with this man.......AND????   It does not make it right? Maybe the reason why this man still is so dumb is because no one has ever taught him otherwise.  When someone is born into wealth, poverty is not taught.  This man fits the typical model of wealth, he probably came from old money so he has never had to make the connections, so he assumes.  Hence the reason why I feels sorry for him.  I can not even begin to think of what driving force has been ingrained into this mans head.  For the wealthy, especially those from old money, decisions are based on tradition and social connections.  They already have security.  I find this sad.  My life have brought character, my life of heartbreak and pain has made me the person I am today.  It made the person who would stand up to the WHITE AMERICAN MAN!    

off my soapbox.....feeling much better.  Thank you,
