Trapped by Tradition

Why do we keep doing the same things, over and over? What “worked” back in the day, doesn’t necessarily “work” NOW.   Just because we have always done something one way, it doesn’t mean that it is the way it should always be done.   And I’m not talking about any one area of life, I am talking about every area of life.  Everything changes, but we hold on to old ways of doing things.  Why? Change certainly doesn’t come easily.  But change we must and change we will, whether we desire the change or not.  It is said that the only thing constant in life is change.  And if you think about it, that is so true.  We are not living in yesterday, yet in a lot of ways we keep doing what we did back then and expecting different outcomes. We are living in now and “now” calls for trying new things and trying them in new ways.  Embrace the changes and embrace new adventures.  Go out and make new traditions that future generations can change!   KJ @ KJ-isms

 

Your life is what you make it

I've always believed that anyone's "lot" in life is what they make it. It really doesn't matter how much or how little money you have, you can be a good person or a bad person. It's a personal choice. It doesn't matter what situation you were born into, it doesn't matter what situation you have had to live through, what matters is who you choose to be. For we all choose the person we become by the choices we make in life. I've seen people who have come from wealth and privilege, who make the choice to live a life of crime and those who come from absolute poverty and desperation, go on to live a life of giving. So, when I see anyone blame their circumstances or their background for "who they are" I say, phewy! A person is the way they are because that is the person they want to be.    KJ @ KJ-isms

 

Living in the Moment

 

Live in the moment! Easy to say, but hard to do at times. The truth is that this “moment” is all that any of us have. Our lives are just series of moments stitched together. It doesn’t hurt to make plans. Just keep in mind that even the best laid plans will change as the “moment” changes. So, if you are stuck in your “planner brain”, get up today, take a deep breath and say, “I am going to LIVE in today” and then just do it. If you take care of your moments, the future will take care of itself.  KJ @ KJ-isms

 

Good looks? or Good Relationships?

Searching for a good relationship is kind of like looking for a good book. What is really important? That it looks good on the outside, or that it has a great story and substance on the inside? Believe it or not, people are a lot like books. One can look awesome on the outside, but have no substance or joy on the inside. When seeking out the people you want to be around, don't be fooled by their looks, look deeper than the surface and find out who they really are on the inside! And if at first, their "looks" don't grab you, give the person a chance. You just might be pleasantly surprised.     KJ @ KJ-isms

Happy People

The happiest people do not have the best of everything,

they make the best of whatever they have.

Snow, snow and more snow

A new day dawns and with it, new chances to be the "best" you that you can be.  What is past, is done, don't look behind you, that's not where you are going. Face forward into this new day with renewed hope and SMILE!    KJ @ KJ-isms  2018
