Why my Thursdays rock

You ever just have one of those days when everything seems to go right?

When things just work out and you're full of happiness. The sky is blue, the birds are singing, all is good and right in the world?

Well, unless you are either crazy or under the influence of something probably not legal, I'm going to bet no, you haven't.

Days like that are practically mythical in these college times. We've always got something to do, tests, homework, projects, then of course there's the job, keeping up the place you live, keeping food on the table and (hopefully for our sakes) clothes on your back.

Well, I may have not had a perfect day in quite a while, my days have been crazy and full of challenges. But, they have been good days.

And I'll tell you why. It's because I've chosen to see them that way, or rather to see the good in them. It's taken me awhile to be able to find this elusive "good" in the days. But now, I can safely say, I'm starting to see it.

The first step in this is to know where, and more importantly how, to look. You've got to look through the right eyes-- that's number one. And number two, look in the right places, which is essentially everywhere. (Well, within reason and not yucky places, of course). Number three, the right eyes, which are eyes that are looking out, not in. Don't look inside, after all-internal organs aren't so pretty and focusing too much on ourselves ain't such a pretty thing. Once we get hooked on ourselves, it's hard to pull away, and we'll get lost in a crazy inward spiral of selfishness, which leaves us feeling empty, alone, and unhappy. Not a pretty site.

The trick is to look outward, look at that world all around, that big crazy thing, full of people, places to go, things to do. The possibilities are endless. What we've got to do is value the idea of life, of being alive. It's a gift to be alive, but not just to take it all unto ourselves, it's something to share and to give. That's the key right there, we've got to look for the opportunities to do good, not just for good to happen to us.

When you see good days are something to be created and not just to be had once in a blue moon when the stars are perfectly aligned, then good days can be whenever you choose.

I like having them on Thursdays especially, and Fridays too. But it's up to you to decide.

Saying hi

To whomever it may concern,

This is for everyone who has ever asked why?

You wonder why you're here. You wonder if there's a point. You ask if there's something more.

This is for you.

I want you to stop for a second and listen to the sound of your breathing.
Feel your heart beating. Taste the air your taking in. And now think about your thought, how you're able to take in what I'm saying to you and process it in your brain, then think about the internal stream of consensuses going on inside you how as you think of these things you have a battle going on about whether or not these simple everyday occurrences of life could possibly attribute to there being something more to life.

Don't answer that question. Because you are only going to twist and contort your mind into believing something that's not true.

But I'll tell you this, all that non sense about there being many forms of truth to everyone it's a fat load of bs.

There's only one truth or there would be no truth at all.

There's a right, right? Or else there could be no definition of it.

Well here's the definition of right, here's truth.

Love.

There is a reason.

A reason you are here.

A reason your heart is kept beating.

A reason you are able to even think about this.

It's because you were created for a purpose, to love.

So stop worrying, stop wondering and just for once in your life-accept it.

You are here on purpose.

Stop looking for the answer and just open your eyes to it-you have to let go and stop blinding your self with your own ideas, your pain, your pride-whatever it is that is keeping you from what is right, from truth.

Just stop, let go, You have to die to truly live, did you know that?

You've got to die to yourself, of yourself and become of the one that made you.

He loves you, He has since before you were born. He knows all your mistakes and everything that has ever hurt you. Please know the truth, it's time you introduced yourself.

Just say hi, that's all.

Thanks :)



I just love you.

I had to say it somewhere. God thank you for today.

Thank you for the flowers on the side of the free way-they make me smile.

Thank you for tap dance class, and my dance class, I need to appreciate that I even get to teach it more.

Thank you for my family God, they are amazing. Please bless them each and bring them closer to you and just make their lives full and amazing.

Thank you for my friends, I am so blessed by them all. :)

Thank you for my dogs and my horse and the cats too.

Thank you for chocolate milk. I love it so much.

Thank you now for sleep, please give me peace-let me just turn all thoughts to you and just sleep on that.

Thank you that if I'm blessed to get another day-that I will get to spend it with you. :)

Thank you.

L.O.V.E.

I love you is not something to mess with.

You shouldn't say it unless you mean it.

It's powerful-when true.

Unfortunately, we're so used to hearing it and saying it when it's not real.

But lets take a look at what it really means.

Before you say it again think about what love is.

Love isn't a feeling. It's not an emotional high, or a strong attraction and it certainly isn't having the hots for someone.

Love is saying you're putting the other person above yourself, it's saying you're going to do whats right with how you treat them.
It's saying you're going to be there for them, that you care about them. Love is a choice, to rise above the selfishness we're born into and care about someone else.

Love isn't something that can ever die, in fact love transcends death. Love is the most powerful thing there is. Love is of God, we can love because He loved us first.

So the next time you say I love you, think about that, love is of God-you had better freaking mean it or you just might have Him to contend with.

Lets get serious here guys, saying I love you and meaning it shouldn't be two different things.

Because love isn't a word, it's a verb. It's an action, a constant action, it's how we live everyday. It's every choice we make, everything we do, is it for love?

So don't say it unless you're willing to back it up everyday, unless you're willing to work for it, to live your life for it and to die for it.
