A couple examples:
1. Just few months ago I ended up in the hospital as my blood pressure spiked one day at school and after going to the hospital, having many tests run on me the results were I am very healthy internally. So, other than some form of stress that I didn't think I was under, really was affecting me. Emotionally over the next two months I have had many ups and downs, everyday reflecting and analyzing me. How do situations or people affect me when I didn't think they do. Are you like me, looking past them as a copping mechanism when they are right in your face? No, more!
2. In my professionally life I have watch some of my students just settle for what is ok to them and it frustrates me cause I want more for them, they deserve the best I can give them! But, what if they they are not receptive of it and are ok with mediocrity? Should I allow them to be? Should I push harder? I feel it is a natural instinct for me to try and have work harder to be better at what ever or where ever they are headed in life.
In the end, I realize more than ever that this process I'm going through will never end but, become a daily, weekly and even monthly evolving process that I must go through. Why, I am not 20 or 30 years anymore and I must be cognitive of every aspect of my life. I told my best friend that I'm starting to get it, going to the hospital back in December was something I had to go through and grateful I did. Call it a "wake-up" being handed a "perspective" what ever that term is to you, it WOKE ME UP! What has come of it? A lot of soul searching, resulting in a hunger. A hunger of life and everything it has to offer and no I'm not talking about materialistic things but, a purer life whereas I stated in another post about living true to myself. As I finish this please now this is my diary, my couch, my avenue of venting and letting the world see my internal self and yes it is damn scary but, it feels so good to open up.
Remember: Ask yourself, are you being true to you?
If yes, keep doing what you are doing.
If no, do you want to change it? If not, then keep doing whatever your doing but, don't ab complain.
Have a great day and let the creative spirit run freely through every part of your body! L
