Fear / Miedo

Fear is a funny emotion…
it can scare you from possibilities,
it can deter you from trying -
it can create problems that don’t even exist.
Then why do we give into it?
Why does it exist?
I want it to just go away.
Is it fair to say I hate fear?

Hate…that’s an emotion I don’t like to feel.
The negativity from even writing the word
seeps into my body and makes me squirm…
I cannot do hate.

I will choose to reconcile with fear…
I will twist and turn it
into something positive.
The onset of fear
will be an indicator for me…
An alertness will rise from the fear,
in order to not only conquer it
but to push passed it.
Fear will be my friend.
For without fear,
I do not grow.


El miedo es una emoción interesante…
puede asustarte de posibilidades,
puede disuadirte de tartar -
puedo causar problemas que no existen.
Entonces porque darle ánimo?
Porque existe?
Yo quiero que se vaya.
Es justo decir que odio el miedo?

Odio… es una emoción que no me gusta sentir.
hasta escribiendo la palabra
me hace sentir mal.
No puedo odiar.

Escogeré reconciarme con el miedo.
Le doy vuelta y lo cambio
en algo positivo.
El inicio del miedo
será  un indicador para mi.
Una vigilancia se levantará del miedo,
para que no solo le conquiste,
pero tambien me impulsará delante de el.
El miedo será mi amigo.
Porque sin miedo,

no voy ha crecer.

How We Grow


Today I talked to you.
Your words were gentle,
Your embrace was warm,
You have always loved me.
I strayed from You,
and not on purpose
but rather I tried to do things
all on my own.
But You're always here,
and I can choose
to let You help and guide me.
There is nothing wrong  
with needing help.
At the end of the day
it's how we grow.

Thoughts


Thoughts and words
merit a certain responsibility.
Thoughts live in our mind,
and consciously or unconsciously
manifests into being.
Today, I will be aware of what I'm thinking,
why I'm thinking 
and how others will feel
with the my thoughts.
Today...I choose to think of compassion,
humbleness, compassion and love.

I See You Again


I see you again,
hiding in the shadows...
present so only I can see.
What should I do with you now?
Is knowing you're there enough?
Should I talk about you with others?
What use would that do.
Maybe the lesson is there…
to see you and not react to you.
You live in your space
as I live in mine.

I Thank Love

Thank you for a second chance.
Thank you for opening my eyes.
and allowing me to heal.
Thank you for keeping me here…
Another year passes
and a deeper appreciation grows.
Life is full of mysteries, complexities,
challenges and joy….
Today, I can say….
Im lucky to be here today,
I'm lucky to feel the love I do,
I'm lucky for so many blessings...
and I thank Love for all of it.

Today I Choose

"Life works out the way it's supposed to..."
I've heard this many times
and wondered, what role if any do I play?
Is life a series of random moments
weaved together by time?
Is karma real?
Are difficulties today because of sins of the past?
And as my mind attempts to get deeper, 
I choose to stop.
Why?
Because I play the most important role
by my choices, my thoughts, my actions…
As simple as, do I want a good day or bad?
It really does start in the mind
and the external is an extension of what's within.
Today I choose to let go, laugh, live, love...
Today I choose to feel joy.

Where You're Supposed To Be


Faith in this intangible emotion,
thing you cannot describe with words….
Believing in yourself -
the vision and desire your heart speaks of
is the voice that should guide you.
Believe in this feeling and know,
it will lead you exactly 
where you're supposed to be.

It's All Needed


It's a new day and a new opportunity to help others.
And skills can be so diverse,
some are meant to be hands on,
some are meant to donate goods,
some have monetary ability,
some are meant to lead,
some are meant to follow….
Regardless of where you fall,
it all matters and it's all needed.
Being compassionate and helping
isn't defined to a specific action.
Keep you heart in the right place,
lend a hand however you can...
we are all people,
and we all could use a more love in this world.

Don't Be Scared


Today, look at the beauty around you.
Appreciate the small things
that seem to get lost in our busy days.
Take a moment to be grateful,
realize how lucky you are to be here…
Live the amazing life in your heart externally….
don't be scared.

Love Is At My Core


Negative people and thoughts,
will always be there…
but it can't effect me
if I don't give into the energy.
The clearer I am with myself
the more synchronicities occur.
It's not random or coincidental,
there is a plan...
my job is to see the signs,
be grateful to it all
and inspire others along the way.

Find the Joy


In our most difficult moments,
believe it or not, clarity lives.
Step out of the challenge 
and recognize the miracle
in all that is you.
From the simplicity of waking up,
to walking, talking, smiling…
it's all a gift.
Life is precious and it's up to us
to find the joy.

Anything is Possible


Anything is possible
as long as you believe.
Open your mind,
open your heart,
let go of trivial noise...
realize most of it is noise.
The answers are within,
don't be scared to listen…
anything is possible,
when you believe.

Come Back to It


Words sometimes get in the way…
your mind can play all day with thoughts
and turn them inside out.
When this happens,
be aware of the voice in your heart…
when your mind begins to be so loud,
this gentile voice can get lost.
Don't worry, it's always there…
just choose to come back to it.

Look Ahead


It's another day...
it's time for a brighter perspective.
Life has it's challenges and disappointments
but I have to believe,
the good out weighs the bad.
Through the struggles
we gain compassion, understanding and wisdom….
and through the darkest hours we gain courage.
Courage to go on, 
courage to let go,
courage to forgive.
It's time to look ahead,
and embrace every second I'm here.

Missed By So Many


I'm having a hard time,
finding my words, feeling my breath…
I'm almost numb.
It's easy to get busy and do other things,
but the memory of you taps my shoulder
and gets my undivided attention.
I can't believe this is real…
I can't believe you are gone…
There was such a gentile, special side to you…
you had a quality people admired - 
you inspired by just being you.
I hope that's what people remember,
I hope your family knows how much you were loved,
I hope you feel the love from us you left behind.
I pray for you, 
it's beyond sad that you are gone...
you will be missed by so many.

~ RIP Earl ~

My feelings are everywhere right now…
I'm sad, angry, 
I smile when I think of our happier times,
I break down and cry to know you're no longer here.
They say everything happens for a reason,
but this makes no sense...
there is no reason - not in this case.
I'm sorry you were alone, and I'm sorry your felt the grips of despair…
I'm mostly sorry I haven't seen you in years.
I will always love you, and will remember our better days...
you were one of the kindest, sweetest people I ever knew,
and that's how I'll keep your memory alive.

RIP Earl Badu

Gratitude and Attitude


Gratitude and attitude,
changes everything.
It takes more energy
to be angry and unpleasant…
and when you think about it,
what do you gain?
You can choose your outcome,
you can choose peace.

Own It


Just do it…
as Nike famously said.
There is no time for fears,
doubt should only exist,
to give you a clearer picture
of what to do next.
Today is your day…
own it.


Monday, September 24, 2012

Attitude


Today is determined by my attitude…
Rather than looking at all I'm not,
I will appreciate all that I am.
I will be grateful for another day,
to breathe air in my lungs…
I will be grateful for the opportunity
to tell those I love, how much I love them…
I will be grateful for waking up.
My attitude is everything,
so I will choose to make it it's best.

Tear


There are moments 
tears seem like the only solution
to whatever it is your are feeling.
Nothing is wrong with a tear…
A tear is full of emotion,
it knows better than you at times…
A tear sometimes needs to happen
in order for you to be honest with yourself.
Embrace this moment,
and look deep at what's going on.
You have the ability to understand yourself…
you have the ability to find joy.

Trajectory of the Day


Your day can change instantly,
and that change can occur in your mind.
Yesterday, I woke up 
and didn't have the most inspiring thoughts.
But then I talked to a friend
who encouraged me and 
while in conversation, a woman walked by
and gave me a compliment.
The effect of my friends words
and a strangers compliment
changed the trajectory of the day….
today, I will do the same for someone else.

Don't


There are some days
you want to throw in the towel….
don't.
It's only a moment that will pass.
It's okay not to feel your best all the time,
and quite normal.
It's unrealistic to expect to be on a constant high -
part of the journey when character forms
is when you're going though challenging times.

Intention


Set an intention.
It will bring purpose and focus in your life.
Staying committed to your intention
will make you disciplined 
and will help you find your center in the middle of chaos.
Life has many challenges, twists and turns…
being centered helps with all the distractions
and your intention will keep you on track.

Love


Love is a beautiful emotion…
it can lift your spirits,
change the course of life,
it can bring you joy like nothing else.
Love is special and sacred…
Love can bless all relationships in your life.
If you feel love,
share your love today with words.
Tell those you love, that you love them,
and why you love them…
Hearing words of love
can change someone's day.


Friday, September 14, 2012

You Will


Stay committed to what you want…
Have a plan stay focused and flexible.
Your are more likely to achieve this vision
if you know what it is…
And stay flexible because you might not get there
how you expected,
but be sure you will get there.

Only You

Forgive yourself,
for whatever blocks your progress.
Life is a journey with ups and downs
and sometimes the downs
can cause deep scars.
This is the flow of life…
we all go through it
but only you can determine your growth…
only you can let go and move on.

Up to Me

I'm not feeling healthy...
I can workout.
I'd like to make more money...
I can work harder.
I want to experience more of life...
I can be more open.
All opportunities are there,
it's up to me to make them happen.

9/11

Life is precious, a gift, an opportunity
to express love to its fullest potential.
Eleven years ago today,
love was not expressed to any potential.
Today, as we remember 
the lives lost in such a senseless act...
show love to a stranger,
pray for the lives touched by this anniversary,
and continue to pray for a better tomorrow.



Monday, September 10, 2012

Today


Today is a gift.
Remember... 
there will never be another today.
Today,
Let go of doubt…
Laugh instead of cry…
Live as if it's your last day…
Love because it's the only way.

Subconsciously


"You can't judge a book by it's cover"
We've heard this saying for years
yet how easy is it to still judge?
Subconsciously, we sometimes judge
based on past experiences, 
stereotypes,  language, body language…
many other variables too.
Try to tap into the subconscious,
catch the thought as it arises
and do not let it to formalize.
We don't know the stories of strangers,
but we can be sure they do have them.
