What If ?

What If?

Two words when spoken that send the brain into a query of hypothetical. Alternate realities are then created in the brain based on the life choices previously made. Spinning up the imagination engine like a turbo, revealing the barrage of thoughts that you flip through trying to see what could have possibly been your present. Yet these options were on the table at some point but over looked for whatever reason at the time.

Example; What if I listened to my father and pursued a trade instead of going to college? This decision which was so important to me could have altered my entire life and how I am currently living now.

I am going to run a few hypotheticals by you and stay open minded.

Side note; these “What If’s” are built around society and social connection.

What if, in order for an individual to become successful in life, one would be required to be a paragon of decency to other individuals at a minimum?

What if, an individual’s interactions with others were based off how that said person treated others?

What if, an individual’s profession was granted based on how selfless or selfish of a person they were?

What if, an individual’s salary or wage earned was indeed based off how generous one was with their time and resources?

What if, the way Love or affection were granted reflected from how an individual loved or showed affection, if any at all to others?

What if, the paths’ available to create a decent future were based off the deeds and merit of your parents?

What if, our soul mates were decided using the actions and re-actions given from previous relationships prior too?

What if, the status of your elder years were based off how you treated the elderly in your youthful life?

The world isn’t fare and normally those who do not plan ahead or at minimum have a plan end up on the struggle bus. As a body of individuals it sometimes appears everyone is out for themselves and I can’t help but wonder, what happened to the passion of community. Why do we look down on those who wish to uplift others or inquire their motives?

What if, is a big question that leads down a rabbit hole of unanswered possibilities for most, regret for others and satisfaction a few may enjoy. The point to all this is simple, make choices in life that you are satisfied with, have no regrets later down the line. I doubt you want to be at the point of moving from this level to the next and wishing you had or had not done a few choice things. We only have one life and there are no do overs or a reset button that I know of, by all means enjoy the time you are granted.

Stay Blessed, Namaste

 

Mi Madre

You are the vessel God choose to create my life, to direct my soul towards the light.
Your Smile, Warmth, Love, Passion, obsession with keeping us close and connected, the glue to our family without any question. Father made us men through the physical lessons, yet your wild warrior’s spirit fuels our blood like an old Indian ritual.

Mother you taught me how to love a woman through actions not words. Treat others how you wish to be treated and know your worth. Placing our Heavenly father above all else, never have I seen you be greedy or needy or choose yourself. Sacrifice is what you’ve given from the moment you said “I DO” …..too you know who, he will get his shine, but today is about you.

I smile when I see you and dad happy enjoying your life, you both have given so much to so many, most of you’re lives have been a sacrifice. Truly blessed we all have been to be reared by you, thank you mother for I can never repay all that you do. I promise to teach my daughters every lesson I’ve learned, so they can grow to be confident, fearless and strong. Molding them to be a better version of themselves every day.

Thank you for always listening when I speak, hearing what my heart is saying when my words are minced and bleak.

Thank you for speaking positive energy into my life, helping me through the dark times, the trials and strife.

Thank you for praying for us even when we don’t ask, for the packages you send the kids and the quirky stuff you pack.

Thank you for always having an open heart and open mind, never shutting down dream, goals, ideas, or thoughts of the mind.

MOM you are the number one lady in my life, I wouldn’t be here without you, but I wouldn’t be me if it wasn’t for you allowing God to guide and move within you.  You are an amazing woman and I love you.

Thank you

Happy Mothers Day to Mi Madre.

 

Your Worth

How often do we short change ourselves to align with someone else? Drop the cost of our services, discount our bodies as product, or give more of our time than planned to appease the individuals we are negotiating with. Do they respect your boundaries, listen when you speak, give of themselves on equal or above terms?

Don’t allow people to diminish  your value through selfishness. Dont think less of yourself to make those around you comfortable. Dont discount yourself or service’s because of a sob story. Your heart isn’t for sale. Along with your morals, faith, loyalties, goals and dreams. Never sale yourself short.

At the end of the day, when you look in the mirror, you will feel much more accomplished if everything you stand for was not pushed aside as you acquire success..
