Magical

Take a trip down memory lane when you were just a young child. The whole world felt like it was yours to explore and discover. Everywhere you turned there was something new to see, something new to learn, the world was very…magical.

Children are highly fascinated by their surroundings and are ever curious about the world around them. To little kids, every day is such an adventure as they have fun and explore what life has to offer without a care in the world.

As we age and become adults, we become less and less fascinated with the world in which we live in, it becomes familiar to us. Though there are countless things to explore, learn, and do in life, for most of us, we live a life that is fairly predictable and routine. With so many responsibilities in life today such as careers and families, it leaves less time to really venture out.

We could really benefit ourselves and our lives if we could go back to viewing the world as a magical place with endless possibilities. With so much chaos and things wrong with the world, taking a step back to recognize the world’s potential and beauty is truly priceless. If only we could again be fascinated with the wonders of the world and have the desire to keep exploring, learning, and growing. That drive is still inside of us, sometimes just covered up by our busy and chaotic lives.

No matter how busy you are, how stressed, how unmotivated you feel, try to add a little magic back into your life. Do something that you have always wanted to do, explore somewhere you have always wanted to go, learn about a hobby, or passion that has always intrigued you. Just be curious about the world again and watch how it opens your eyes to endless possibilities!

Pick Up a Pen

     Each and every one of us has a life full of experiences and stories.  We all have a story to tell of our journey as human beings.  Our pasts are full of lessons, accomplishments, trials, sorrows, joys, and experiences.  If we take the time to share and listen to other’s stories, we can learn so much from each other.

 Writing is a form of art, a form of expression that is so beneficial to the one reading and to the writer themselves.  Each of us has a story that we can learn from.  Pick up a pen, colored pencils, a paintbrush and share a glimpse of your world with others, it could really help someone.  A lot of times we may not know how to fully express ourselves, we may be fearful of judgement, or the reaction that we may get from others, but in all honesty, there is no right or wrong, just put the pen to paper and let it flow.

       Others may feel differently, but I truly believe that each of us were meant to have a special path and journey that helps us become the strongest and best version of ourselves that we can be.  I try to look at the trials and hardships as ways to grow even though sometimes they are hard to accept.  The human experience presents challenges that we all face and some that are uniquely ours.  Our stories and our voices are meant to be heard.  Even the happiest, most positive people have a story, looks are very deceiving.  If we are willing to open up, so many doors can then become open to us.  There are so many people needing to hear our story for motivation, hope, guidance, inspiration, and to not feel alone.

   No matter what the world has told you in the past or present, you matter and your voice matters.  It is an amazing feeling for someone to benefit and be able to relate to what we have to say, this can even help us foster new relationships.  Life is all about learning and discovering who we are and who we are meant to be, you have a lot to give to this world, so pick up a pen and see where it takes you!

My Mission in this World

     Within us all, we each have a passion that drives us and motivates us.  We have a goal, a mission, a mark that we want to leave on this Earth.  We are all so unique and have many different interests that spark the light within us.  I have many aspirations in this world, but one of my main missions in life is to show love, respect, kindness, compassion, and to help mankind.  Every single positive interaction that we have with others has the infinite ability to change lives and change the world. 

      A lot of times we go through life kind of on autopilot.  There’s so much to get done in a day and as we carry out our daily routines we are not always aware of the impact that we have on others and the world around us.  As I go through my day, I am not really aware of how I impact other people unless they tell me.  I try to make each interaction with others one that will help them or lift them up in some way.  If we are having a rough day, or are not in the best mood, it can be really hard to put out our best efforts to show respect and kindness to others. 

      I have been through a whole lot in my life, we all have, and I have experienced many things that I never thought that I would in my lifetime, let alone at my age.  Each of these experiences has taught me something, made me stronger, made me wiser, allowed me to see life in a very different light.  My mission in life is to inform others, help others, enlighten others, and to spread hope to other individuals.

   Helping people doesn’t have to be anything major, a simple smile, hug, a thinking-of-you card, or a text to check in on someone could mean the world to them.  I wrote in one of my past blogs about a woman that I had given a compliment to and she smiled and was taken aback by it, she then told me that no one had given her a complement for years.  Not only did this break my heart, it made me realize that everything we do and say no matter how small it seems to us has the potential to have so much power and affect someone’s life.

    Helping other people benefits everyone involved.  There is such joy and happiness that comes from knowing that you have helped someone, or turned their day around.  People who receive help and love are more likely to pay it forward.  It is also important to note that not everyone shows love and compassion in the same way.  Some may like to cook someone a meal, send a card, make a phone call to check in, a smile, a hug, even just truly listening shows compassion, the ways are really endless.

       I can think of many times in my life that people were there for me and unfortunately many times where people hurt me.  It’s definitely a part of growing and learning, but people don’t forget kindness, they don’t forget the people that were there for them when no one else was.  What we say and do has a lasting effect on other people, this is a big motivator to help me try to do my best daily.  I have so much that I am working on to try to better myself, there are things that I would like to improve on, no one is anywhere near perfect, we all have flaws, fears, and we all have a past full of experiences as human beings.  My mission for this world is to spread love and respect for mankind, it’s up to us, we have the power.  Have a great day all and try to do something today to show your love to someone, it’ll make both of your days.
