Life only Happens Through Heat

13 Apr

“Life only Happens through Heat and heat means Friction”- Unknown

This is a reminder that life isn’t easy and you have to be ready for challenges and confrontation because it is going to happen. We have to have heat to live right? Well to really live you have to be willing to stick up for yourself, others when needed and the things you believe in, which can cause friction.

I know that in the past I have said things that have needed to be sad but it doesn’t always turn out the way you hope. People may get hurt, might not stay friends, but you have to do what is right. In the past I have had to tell a friend that her boyfriend was cheating on her. We didn’t talk for six months but she had to know what was happening. I am not saying that it was easy but sometimes you do what you know is right to help the ones that need it.

People make choices and those choices can turn out good or bad. No matter if they are good or bad you have to do what you feel is right which means you are going to cause some heat. My challenge to you is to stick up for friends and family. Don’t back down because you don’t know the outcome. Go for it and see what it brings you because in the end you have to have heat to live. Life is what you make it so what are you going to do today?


If Plan A Doesn’t Work

10 Apr

If plan A fails....

“If ‘Plan A’ didn’t work. The alphabet has 25 more letters! Stay cool.” –Unknown

Many people think that if they fail at one thing its all over but you have to remember that even if you didn’t achieve the first thing there is always a second thing to do. If you do have a plan A then you probably have a plan B. The problem with a plan is that it is just an idea of what you want to do. You have to be willing to change as other things are given to you. Sometimes it means coming up with plan E but you can still accomplish your plan.

I know that even when I plan things down to the minute, one thing will go wrong and you have to figure it out and plan A just changed to plan B. I am a planner at heart but when it comes down to it I realize that you can only plan things to an extent before you just have to let things happen.

This quote should remind you that things will work out you just have to go with the flow some times. The challenge that I give to you is to not freak out if the first plan doesn’t work out and to just figure out a second or third or fourth or fifth plan. Life is what you make of it so what are you going to do today?

No More Bashing

9 Apr

“Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate” -unknown

Many people forget to mention the good things in life and only focus on the things that go bad. People need to forget the things that make the day bad and focus on the things that are good in the day.

I know that sometimes you just have to complain about people that are annoying in your life but you also have to say the good things because if the person that your complaining to only hears the bad about another person it is hard to ever think good of that person.

I know that when I have friends that have told me bad or annoying things about a person that I have never meet before it is hard to ignore those things when I first meet the person. They are like first impressions but without actually using our own ideas and views to come to your own conclusion. The thing about judging people before you meet them you don’t ever give them a chance to show who they really are.

You should not worry about the people that bug you on a daily basis but tell people about the ones you love on a daily basis. Next time someone treats you well tell people and just ignore the people that don’t treat you well. My challenge to you is try to find something that you are passionate about, like me and quotes and tell people about them. Life is what you make it so what are you going to do today?

Think for Yourself

5 Apr

“To find yourself, think for yourself.” –Socrates

Many people these days just do what they think is right according to other people. They don’t think for themselves and live  for themselves. There are so many different influences that affect us as adults but there are even more that affect kids. Between the TV shows, newspapers, magazines, the internet, and movies the influences are never stopping.

If you think for yourself you can accomplish great things, if you think of all the inventions that people have come up with they didn’t just follow they thought for themselves and lead. I know that when I come up with ideas for myself I realize what is important to me and what I can accomplish. I know that in times in my life I have let people tell me what to do but I have come to realize that when I let them do that I am not being myself and not expressing myself the way I should. I now know that I can’t regret things that have happened and I need to move on, which I am working on by sticking up for myself.

This quote should really make you stop and think. Who am I? What do I want in life? What do I want today? To accomplish these questions you have to be true to yourself and think for yourself. The challenge of today is to try to think for yourself and not let people push you around and tell you what to do. Life is what you make it so what are you going to do today?

Stop Giving Up

4 Apr


“If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up.” -Unknown

Some people think that it is easier to just stop when things get hard. Well that is true but if you always give up you never actually complete anything. If you never complete things you will never get that feeling that accomplishing something gives you. The biggest problem with giving up is that it usually ends up hurting someone.

I know that in my past I have given up on things and they end up hurting me. Whether it’s giving up on a homework assignment when it gets to hard or giving up on a friendship that is headed down hill. Giving up leaves  you with questions about what could have happened. Like I said in my earlier post (regrets) you can’t regret because there is nothing you can do about the past except learn from it.  Giving up on friendships can go both ways, it can hurt you and can hurt the other person.

My challenge to you is looking back on something that you have given up on. It can be a hobby or a friendship that you have quit. Try to find the reason of why you quit. If it is something that is worth fixing or a hobby that is worth trying again, do it! Try it and see what it turns into. Who knows it could turn out great! Life is what you make of it so what are you going to do today?

Everybody is a Genius

31 Mar

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”- Albert Einstein

Everyone has their own talent. Some take longer to find it but everyone does have one. The thing about talents is that you have to use what your good at and enjoy to make your life what you want it to be. Take what you love and do it.

For example I know that I am not good at dancing but I am good at the techniques that come with swimming. If someone was to judge everything I do on my non existing dancing skills I would be a failure but if someone was to judge me on my technique in swimming I would be doing good. The problem with judging is that you usually don’t know the person that you are judging so you don’t know what their talents are. They are geniuses in their talent.

Instead of just looking at a person and making a judgment, get to know them and see what their talent is. Who knows maybe you will have more in common then you think. Maybe the person with surprise you and they really are a genius. Many people with many different talents make up this world that we live in and without them what would this world be like? Life is what you make it so what are you going to do today?

Then Teaches the Lesson

30 Mar

“Life is like a confused teacher… first she gives the test… and then teaches the lesson”- Unknown

You don’t always know what life is going to throw at you and how to deal with it but always remember that you will learn from it. Think about all the lessons you have learned from actually doing it. Would you still know the things you know without those lessons? Let me just tell you, no.

If I wouldn’t have lived with the wrong people in the past how would I know that some people you live with are friends because you live with them and some are true friends. I understood the test but know that I have learned the lesson I have grown to be the person I am today. I know that I have taken the classes that you don’t always get what the teacher is saying then you take the test and the teacher goes over it and its like you are learning it for the first time and understand it.

My challenge is to try to just take the advise and lessons that you learn and use them for your future. Don’t worry about what has happened cause there is no changing it there is just moving on and looking for the future. Don’t let the past be a burden for what the future can bring you. Life is what you make of it so what are you going to do today?
