We are all on a Journey! Its called LIFE! Now, the best part of that this journey is that ALL of us get to Choose our own path! Think about that for just a minute…. tick … tick … tick…okay times up! I’m gonna repeat that just in case you missed it the first time, “We ALL get to Choose our Path!” Don’t get me wrong, we all have a past and some of them were better than others. Trust me I get that better than anyone, because my childhood Sucked! I don’t mean in any little way either, It royally is right up there the probably the Top 10 of ALL Childhoods that Sucked. (But that is not what this blog is about, that will be for a much later post… Yes that is meant to keep you coming back for more so you don’t miss it lol)
So, Now, back to the whole “Choose your Path” thing I was talking about! The fun thing about our Journey in this life is that whatever path we choose is OUR Journey! My journey is not your journey, your journey is not my journey, Tom’s journey is not Michael’s journey, Linda’s journey is not Cindy’s journey and so on. Not everyone is going to understand what path it is that your are on, Hell, You may Not understand the path that you are on. You just had this Burning desire, deep within you, to go this way, but you really haven’t figured out your “WHY” yet. But when you do… Oh Good Lawd! You better hold on because its gonna be an Awesome Ride!
See, by choosing the path that you want to travel, you are in Complete Control of How Awesome it can be or How Bad it can Suck! Me personally, I Chose to make Mine Awesome lol. Oh, you want to know what I mean by that? Okay, well here is how I understand it. We ALL have been given this thing called “FREE WILL” to Choose to do whatever we want. Now you can define that however you see fit. That means “YOU” are the only one Responsible for YOUR Path! So, you have the option to Choose to make your life as Exciting, Fun, Interesting, Challenging and Awesome as you want. Or…. on the flip side of that, your choices can make it as boring, sad, hurtful and as full of struggle as YOU Choose it to be at any given time. That is what I mean by, you have the Option to Choose your Path on this Journey of Life! It’s just like a math problem. You add Positive things to your life to make it Awesome and Exciting. Or you can add Negative things to your life to subtract from your happiness and awesomeness? No one on the planet has the Power to make you miserable or to make your life full of negativity but YOU! Do bad things happen to Good people? Yes! But the key is how you respond or react to those bad things.
Some things that happen we have Absolutely ZERO control over. There is Nothing we can do but say, Okay, it is what it is and I am gonna move forward from here. When you “Respond” with acceptance and not worry, things just seem to fall into place and correct themselves a lot sooner and Usually better than what you had ever planned in the first place. (That’s called your Blessing) Now, on the flip side, you can get all pissed off, mad, worry and keep harping on how you didn’t do anything to deserve this and yada yada yada! Day in and Day out, you harp on how bad this sux! You know that does? It keeps you right there in that world that Sux! It’s a Choice! Think about it like this, you’re reading this Awesome novel that’s a thriller. You are at the climax at the end of a chapter, it’s a cliff hanger, and the only way you find out who did what to who is to “Turn The Page” and go on to the next chapter in the book, right? So, Now….. here in lies your “CHOICE”, Are you gonna “A” keep reading that same page trying to figure out what the hell is happening? Or…. option “B” Turn the Page to the Next Chapter and find out that your favorite character made it through and is the Hero after all? Let me guess….. You Choose Option “B”!
Woot Woot! So now apply that Option to all the Crazy stuff that happens in your Journey! Yes it really is that Simple! I get asked all the time… Tammy, do you Ever have a bad day? I can honestly say, I rarely have a bad day any more. (Thank the Good Lord! lol) I may have bad moments in a day, where something happened that made that part of my day Suck! But, hey, that is life! If I let that person make me miserable, they win! (And if you know me at all, you already know how I absolutely HATE to Lose at anything lol) So Needless to say, I might be mad for a hot second, might even yell, scream, vent or go throw some weights around. (Yes, I really mean throw weights around lol) But within the hour, usually, I am back laughing, cutting up and making Everyone that comes in contact with me, Enjoy their time in my Sunshine!
I said ALL of that for this 1 Reason… Do Not Let anyone Dull Your Shine! Choose the Path that Makes you Laugh til you can’t breathe, Dance like nobody is watching and Sing like Nobody can Hear You! Life is Short! It’s about making your Journey AWESOME! And, quite honestly, Nobody makes it out Alive! So, quit being so Damn Serious all the time and Make Your Life as Awesome As You Are!
I would love to hear how you take a bad situation and turn it into something Awesome! Leave me a comment below and lets spread some Positive ways to help other people do the same! If this post helped you in some way, please share and lets touch as many people as we can! Thanks for stepping into my world for just a moment & I hope I made you smile from the inside out!
